Maybe more fruit then
- I know at the moment I need more fruit- and I crave rice today- never do much rice anyway - but I gave in so I did not shout too much at mu poor child...
Ghee would do you good as well or butter if you are more into that ... we need to balance the olive oil with a bit of saturated fat.....

Suggestion #1:  Have a baby.  The cramps don't seem as bad after.    I guess that's not an easy option for just anybody, or very convenient for most everybody.

Suggestion #2:  Unsweetened chocolate (unless sugar is neutral for you).  I used to like to eat chocolate when I was having my period and then I thought maybe it was just the sugar I was after, so I bought some unsweetened Baker's chocolate (before they started putting milk in it) to experiment and surprise, surprise, I really did feel better with just the chocolate!

Moodiness before period and sore breasts = high estrogen in relation to progesterone.  Very common in women after 35 or in high stress lives.  Various thoughts on this, adrenals not producing enough hormones esp progesterone.  Estrogen takes over...estrogen binds to thyroid hormone.

Heavy bleeding for a few days then almost stop and start again...low adrenals.

Heavy bleeding and long periods, problems with thyroid/high estrogen.

Short cycles long bleeding - non ovulatory cycle (no egg released).  High estrogen perimenopause. Thyroid issues

Lots of bleeding  - Ob/gyn suggested a larger uterus (not everyone has the same size).

When I was a teenager, I used to bleed so much, I would wake up in a pool of blood, as I have been getting older, the bleeding is actually better.  Still cannot use tampons or cups,  need the maxi x 2 pads at least for the first 3 days.  Again as I get older, my cycle is actually up to 25 days rather than 21 days.

No coffee=no cramps.  

Progesterone and thyroid helped a lot with the PMS (I used to want to get divorced 1 time per month and give away my children)!!!

"Heavy bleeding for a few days then almost stop and start again...low adrenals."

Really?  Very interesting.  I would agree with that based on my own experiences with post partum bleeding--not just periods.  But I wouldn't have ever thought to blame it on low adrenals, though I'm not surprised.
