Women are unique, mysterious, beautiful, strong, intelligent and a myriad of other interesting things. We are each as different from one another as one snowflake is from another. There is one thing that virtually every woman has the same as every other woman is their period. Yep, I said it! We all get it, we mostly dread it and we cannot wait for it to be over. We get such lovely things like mood swings and depression, bloating, carb cravings, fatigue and sore and swollen breasts. Other common symptoms are joint and muscle pain, headaches, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, lack of concentration and upset tummy. There are many causes for these behaviors including hormone changes, low vitamin levels, and changes in prostaglandins which cause uterine contractions, which cause cramping.
