What do you recommend for all over achy, irritable feeling at end of each month?

Published: August 24, 2013

Have noticed that at the end of the month, beginning of the next month, I am a mess. Ache all over, irritable, kind of a PMS feeling (i'm 69) and this is every month. What do you recommend I try or do? I have always been on alternative medicines,etc to include (Armour Thyroid) and gone to naturopaths. I am at my wits end as to what is going on with me. Please help.......have been diagnosed with cfs, fibro, and polymyalgia. Have also done NAET treatments.


In this setting, I add bio-identical estrogen/progesterone and testosterone. Also, do the free Energy Analysis Program to find other ways to tune up energy in your specific case. Also, for Polymyalgia Rheumatica, there are several important thoughts: 1- Some find that avoiding wheat/gluten helps......2- Instead of trying to wean the prednisone off and flaring the illness if on this, ask your doctor about prescribing bioidentical hydrocortisone, called cortef. Doses of up to 20 mg a day (~ to prednisone 4 mg but safer) can be used with very few side effects and large benefit in PMR.....3- Herbals to balance immune function, such as willow bark, curcumin and boswellia, along with fish oil, is a good idea.
