The Most Effective PMS Treatments

The Most Effective PMS Treatments

When you are looking for effective PMS treatments, the more desperate you become for a solution to your PMS symptoms, the more willing you will naturally become to try anything and everything that promises to help even a little.

If you are almost to that point with your premenstrual pain and emotional drama, it is time to ask one question: what PMS treatments are the most effective and fast-acting?

You may think you have tried it all and have found no adequate solution to your discomfort, but there are some things you may not have tried or which you may not have given a long enough chance to work.

Like all treatments for any type of medical condition, you have to remain consistent with treatment even when you are not feeling the pain or suffering emotional outbursts, depression, weight gain, bloating, and other symptoms.

Daily Supplements

Supplements are the easiest approach to relieving premenstrual syndrome symptoms, and pain reliever does not count as a healthy daily supplement.

You may rely upon pain reliever to get through the day right now, but with the right treatments you should be able to depend upon chemical pain reliever less.

The best supplements for PMS relief are krill oil and calcium.

You can get more calcium through diet as well, but taking a supplement is the easiest and fastest approach, especially if your diet is not consistent at this time. Make sure to take vitamin D3 with calcium for better absorption. 

You can also try primrose oil and chaste berry supplements, but these supplements may come with uncomfortable side effects for some women.

Krill oil is an absolute essential for all women all month long every month.

Not only will it put an end to a lot of the emotional and physical turmoil that comes with PMS, but it will protect your heart and help your brain function more efficiently. Because krill oil is a great anti-inflammatory/anti-oxidant, it will ease PMS symptoms before you even notice them. 

This is the simplest form of effective PMS treatment you will ever come across: take a krill oil supplement daily.


The most effective solution to your PMS symptoms may be what you put in your mouth. Foods rich in vitamins, minerals, lean protein, complex carbohydrates, and other nutritional goodness can curb premenstrual cramping and abdominal cramping.

Trading in the sugary, high-calorie drinks for healthy supplies of water can give bloating and swelling a swift kick to the curb.

Before you sit down to eat a meal when you know PMS is just around the corner, ask yourself what that meal will do to keep those uncomfortable PMS symptoms at bay.

Examples include: magnesium rich foods, peanut butter for vitamin B6, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, etc. Try to avoid to much sugar and do not skip meals. 


What is active rest and relaxation?

Isn’t rest and relaxation supposed to mean complete laziness and minimal movement?

Not necessarily. One of the most effective cures for the aches, pains and emotional distresses of PMS is to relax your body in a pleasant yet active manner.

Here are some example activities that are emotionally and physically soothing:

  • Yoga
  • Pilates
  • Stretching
  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Swimming

Just going out for a walk and feeling the fresh air and sunshine on your skin can help lift your mood, ease abdominal bloating, and take the edge off of cramping, headaches, aches and pains.

Combine this activity with a healthy diet and a daily supplement of krill oil, and you have the most effective solution to your PMS distress.


Over-the-counter pain medications, PMS supplements, and mood enhancers aimed at relieving the discomforts of premenstrual syndrome are everywhere today.

Manufacturers know that this is a problem that women will likely always suffer with, which makes relief aids a lucrative industry.

The problem is these products are quite expensive, not all work for every woman, and some may not work at all for most women.

There are some medications that claim to relieve all symptoms of PMS with one pill, but there are so many different symptoms that it is not possible for one pill to relieve all of the discomfort for every suffering woman.

This is why most women end up taking one pain reliever for aches and pains, a diuretic for bloating, and other products for other symptoms they experience every month.

If you are tired of spending all of that money on multiple products or your bank account can no longer stand to make all of those purchases every month, it is time to do something new.

It is time to consider giving up the pharmacological PMS products in favor of all-natural solutions to your PMS symptoms.


1. Less risk of interaction with prescription medications and other over-the-counter products.

2. Less risk of negative side effects.

3. Financial savings. There are even some lifestyle changes that can relieve your PMS symptoms without any financial investment at all.

4. Less time invested in researching products. It is easier to find trustworthy information about natural products than it is to find honest information regarding pharmacological products.

Some natural PMS remedies have received substantial study attention, so their health benefits and potential side effects are easy to discover.

5. Long term effectiveness. Most pharmacological PMS solutions wear off within hours, but many natural remedies deliver ongoing results.

6. You can add lifestyle changes such as adjusting your sleep schedule, adding exercise into your daily life, and learning deep stretching techniques.

7. You can book a monthly appointment with a chiropractor to combat physical pain or learn meditation techniques to relax your mind when you feel overwhelmed by the stress of daily life.

In fact, natural lifestyle changes come with health benefits and happiness boosters even when you are not suffering from PMS.


Natural treatments for PMS are not that difficult to find. You can start with simple supplements, such as krill oil. Krill oil is great for inflammation, cell recovery and easing PMS symptoms in general. 

There are some natural PMS supplements that are sold through the pharmacy of local stores, but you have to research them just as you would a prescription medication given by your doctor.

Make sure you know what you are putting into your body, whether it is natural or not. Some plants and other natural products have powerful effects on the human body, and they can be just as powerful as unnatural drugs and medications.
