PMS Relief

Herbal home-remedies with Ayurvedic dietary guidelines

Treatment details can be provided by appointment in Ojai or Santa Barbara, or by phone/Skype with herbal products mailed.


Although many women think having PMS is normal, it's not. PMS is one of the first signs that the body may be on the path toward a hormonal imbalance.  Regular menstruation, absence of pain or tension, smooth flow, and balanced emotions are signs for good health for a woman.  However, most women suffer some difficulties with menstruation at one time of life or another, as part of the normal changes that life brings.

The protocol

The treatment varies greatly depending on the body-type and symptoms: Vata constitution women generally have scanty menstrual flow with often severe cramping and lower back pain.  Pitta type women usually have a heary menstrual flow with possible clotting. There is often a fever or burning sensation accompanied by anger, irritability and short temper. Kapha women generally have moderate flow but a longer lasting period. Often it is accompanied with feeling so heaviness and tiredness with a desire to sleep. The breast tends to swell and there may be some edema particularly in the lower legs.

Herbal therapies to promote regular menstruation are usually indicated with use of emmenagogues (menstruation-producing), antispasmodics (for relieving muscle spasms) and nervines (to relieve cramping pain and calm the mind).  Special tonics for the reproductive system are also important to balance the hormones.

This protocol includes a nutritional deficiency assessment and specific supplement recommendations, home remedies, a PMS tea (1 week before menstruation) and an individualized Ayurvedic formula as required to be taken daily.   Basically, I see about a 95% success rate with this approach with greatly reduced symptoms especially cramping and pain. 

Therapy requires one private consultations (in Ojai, CA or by Skype) plus herbal products.

Success Stories

Mia Wilson, Carpinteria

I did the PMS tea for a few days and loved it.

Ashley Pintek, Los Angeles

I just wanted to thank you for helping me rethink my dietary habits - I have been eating all the vata foods, cooking my vegetables, using more oil and spices. I have to say I feel and look so much better now, it's really quite amazing! I, and I'm sure countless other people, am truly grateful for the work you do.
