As women enter their 30’s and 40’s, unexpected physical, emotional and mental changes can occur as a result of fluctuation levels of estrogen and progesterone.
PMS is a hormone disorder that can present with symptoms of:
- Mood swings
- Weight gain
The decrease in estrogen levels after ovulation causes a decline in serotonin and dopamine leading to mood changes. Declining pregnenolone can be the culprit as well. Treatment options such as balancing hormones and cortisol levels, adding in nutritional supplementation and making dietary changes can significantly reduce the symptoms of PMS and perimenopause.
