Women's Health- Menstruation
Women's Health- Menstruation
Being a woman comes with its perks and downsides. One of the biggest downside is PMS- those physical discomforts and emotional disturbances that make you want to curl up in bed, make you socially unbearable and gives you all sorts of inexplicable cravings! PMS can be hard- with over 80% of women experiencing symptoms associated to PMS. However, light therapy has been proven to be very effective in treating Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) that appears one or two weeks before the start of menstruation.
The changes occurring with PMS have been attributed to alterations in the hormone levels and circadian rhythm, which regulates the body’s internal clock. PMS is actually marked by a period of low levels of progesterone and serotonin hormones and an accelerated level of circadian rhythm. Circadian rhythm regulates the timing of periods of sleepiness and wakefulness, hence bright light therapy has been shown by studies to be increasing the production of serotonin (a hormone that affects the mood and well-being) and also to improve circadian rhythms.
Hence, PMS is not something that is irremediable. You can choose to get better comfort during the “time of the month” with bright light therapy!
