Although most women experience some degree of mood alteration prior to and at the start of their period, others experience excessive symptoms that cause them significant personal and interpersonal distress.
At Selah, we understand how to distinguish normal discomforts from abnormal ones. We also value the impact of these symptoms on a woman’s relationships and life success. Sometimes complete hormone testing can be helpful to identify underlying causes. Sometimes nutritional deficiencies, poor nutritional habits, or sleep disorders contribute to this syndrome. In other scenarios, these symptoms result from the impact that long-standing negative beliefs and emotions have on neurochemical signalling in the brain.
We aim to identify and treat all of these causes effectively, but also equip our patients with tools to reduce and curtail the cycles of poor emotional and spiritual health that predispose them to excessive premenstrual symptoms.
