Escaping The PMS “Danger Zone”

Before I tried acupuncture, I have to admit I had no idea what my period was doing. Not only was it all over the place, but I also dreaded the day I had to deal with it, because I would always be in so much pain. Being the type of person who refused to take anything for it, I would suffer through the “contractions” with a hot water bottle on my belly, waiting for it all I end. On top of that, I was an emotional roller-coaster for at least a week before the dreaded day.

Since I’ve started acupuncture, my cycles have regulated to an almost exact 32 days (I can’t believe I can now predict the day with so much more certainty) and I have to say that for the last 3 months, I’ve been in complete disbelief at the fact that I feel virtually NO pain (I’d say it’s about a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10) and at how happy I feel all the time…even when I’m in the PMS “danger zone”.  It’s unbelievable what acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs have done. I feel like I’m back to my happy-go-lucky self!
