Hormone fluctuations the few days before your period can wreak havoc on your physical and mental well-being. Painful cramps, uncomfortable bloating and ever-changing mood swings can leave you feeling less-than-human and wishing for your normal life back.

1. Eat a proper diet. 

The foods we eat have a major affect on our bodies’ hormone levels. Eating fruits, vegetables and grains can reduce your PMS symptoms, while eating foods such as dairy and salt will amplify your ailments. Find out which five foods to eat for PMS relief—and which six foods to avoid.

2. Stress less. 



Cortisol, a stress hormone, competes with progesterone for common cell receptors in your body, which can contribute to the estrogen imbalance that causes cramps and irritability. Learning to manage stress can help balance your hormones and reduce PMS symptoms. Experiment with different techniques (yoga, meditation, breathing exercises) to find out what works best for you.
