Premenstrual tension affects about 3 out of 4 menstruating women. Symptoms include mood swings, irritability, breast tenderness, food cravings, fatigue, and depression.

Physical symptoms may include cramps, joint pain, bloating, water retention, headache, acne, and constipation. Usually symptoms occur 1-3 weeks prior to menses and they resolve at the onset of menstrual cycle. For some the emotional and physical symptoms of PMS are severe enough to affect their daily lives.

Myers’ cocktail is one of the fastest ways to treat PMS permanently. Patients who have received Myers’ cocktails for 5 consecutive weeks have reported relief of mood swings, food cravings, and menstrual cramps. Headaches resolve and fatigue subsides.

Natural progesterone therapy is also a powerful way to treat PMS symptoms. The dosage is tailored to the individual’s need and it’s prescribed for 1-3 weeks prior to menses to be applied at night time. This therapy balances the estrogen progesterone ratio.

A liver cleanse is also recommended to improve the processing of hormones and toxins. Phase I and Phase II detoxification pathways makes toxins and hormone by products water soluble, and it enhances their excretion from the body. Patients who have done the 10 day liver cleanse experience 70 % improvement in their PMS symptoms.

    Suzy M.
  • “I feel better than I have felt in years thanks to Dr. Lalezar. I had been to other doctors ... She has prescribed balancing hormones and various minerals and micronutrients to get me feeling better than ever. Those, along with chelation IVs have made incredible transformations in my health.”

  • “My only regret is not finding her earlier, before the ten years of needless drugs and dealing with pain for no reason. If you have a health issue, trust Dr. Lalezar. I'm really glad I did.”
