Hi there--

I've been following the BTD for about five weeks now, with lots of great results: weight is slowly coming off, fatigue is less severe, and my recent period was less severe physically. However, I still had my premenstrual depression, and I've just gone through my ovulation depression (which I also get most months).

Does anyone have any experience with beating that? Or will it just come with time?

Thanks!

I do take B6 and magnesium. But maybe I don't take enough? Do you know what the proper dosage is?

I also take NAP's Catechol and Tranquility Base.

Thank you, Tomatilla.

Try a chinese herbal product called xaio yao wan.  Take 3 x day for the week preceeding each menstrual period.  It's available in most natural food stores under the Plum Flower brand.

Also, the herb vitex can be helpful with hormonally related moods.

do you crave chocalate around this time?.....1 oz of dark chocolate (70% cocoa) has 33mg of magnesium..brings the mood up too. 7 oz around this time won't hurt you...dark chocolate has been proven to increase pre-menstrual progesterone levels, thus alleviating the problem of PMS.

Wow--thanks for the great advice, everyone!

Yes, I do crave chocolate, but I stopped eating any sugar almost four years ago for various reasons. I wonder if I can find unsweetened dark chocolate? (Although I suspect it would taste pretty nasty...)
