Joys of Womanhood

Womanhood; can't change the fact that I am a woman and thankfully every month like clockwork my monthly visit comes leaving behind a path of emotional and physical destruction. I woke up this morning feeling "pregnant". That tired, bloated, sick tummy and plugged head feeling. I knew right away my dear aunt flow was going to be paying me a visit real soon. Stepped on the scale this morning and sure enough +2.4 pounds.. Yikes!!!! With a shopping trip planned this weekend, why? I am not going to want to try on new jeans feeling this way. There has to be something I can do to get some relief?


Good ole' Google to the rescue. I searched for menstrual bloat relief and came across several sites all showing the same answers; so here they are:



  1. Reduce your salt intake. When trying to lose weight we tend to switch to can soup and low calorie prepackaged foods that are high in sodium. Read your labels.


  2. Flush, Flush, Flush - your system that is. Drink your water.


  3. Watch what you eat. Avoid gassy foods like beans and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. Some dairy foods can cause gas as well.


  4. Get moving. Even a small 10 minute walk can help. Exercise helps gas pass through the digestive track.

These all seem like normal commonsense ideas for combating PMS bloat. Most of which I am already doing; so why do I still feel this way? I decided to dig a little deeper. I across a home remedy that might be worth a shot; peppermint capsules like CharcoCaps. Before popping pills I think I will try some peppermint tea and see if that helps.

    1. I will look into that thanks. Not sold on the 8 1/2 cups - that is a ton of water for me. But, worth a shot.
