It was a toss up between a picture of Xena the Warrior Princess in battle or the classic Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West.
Nothing properly conveys the unique myriad of symptoms we call PMS.
What I do know is that EFT CAN HELP WITH ALL OF THE SYMPTOMS!
I found a book called Everything You Need To Know About PMS. No, Woody Allen didn't write it.
Listed in it were some of the common symptoms of PMS:
enlarged & painful breasts
compulsive eating & cravings
changes in sexual desire
lower back pain
So where do you begin?
Take each symptom & rate it out of 10. Tap on them separately. Each is a separate issue, but we they are all being triggered by hormones, whatever foods you are eating and your belief system that has developed as these symptoms have repeatedly bothered you.
It is time to recognize that you can fight your body or work with it.
If you consider that you have a rush of hormones and as the feelings begin that you are starting into an ovulation or period cycle, what do you tell your self? I am going to be in pain, I need a treat, some pizza or icecream will make me feel better.
Imagine on a cellular level how the dread of being in pain is being interperated & then add a pile of fried food or dairy into the mix. You have now created an emotional and physical signal that sets into motion the headache, or bloating on top of the cramping.
I highly recommend changing any related patterns to unlock the response your body has created. EFT is a really great tool for the physical symptoms. You will be amazed by how you can use it preventativly as well.
Even though I am dreading my period.....
All of these symptoms can be overwhelming & cause depression, mood swings, tension, irritability, anxiety, anger & crying spells.
How are those feelings tied to your uterus? It is the centre of your reproduction & sexuality in your body. If you have experienced:
disappointment in love & relationships, pregnancy, loss & fear.
Take a look at how these fear based emotions are locking a pain pattern in place & that will help you understand what you need to release.
