  • Tragically 30% of these will attempt suicide
  • Symptoms begin as soon as you enter the luteal phase of your cycle, remaining until day 4 of your bleed
  • Early childhood sexual abuse makes a woman 6.7 times more likely to develop PMDD
  • A 2011 study found that PTSD was 8 times more common in women with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and women with Premenstrual symptoms
  • A 2017 study at the National Institutes of Health, found that people with PMDD have genetic changes that make their cells more sensitive to progesterone which may cause these symptoms
    • Gene expression differs in cells of PMDD sufferers
    • The gene that regulates the epigenetic mechanisms that govern the transcription of genes into proteins in response to the environment and stressors
    • Protein expression of four key genes was decreased in cells from women with PMDD
  • If you are suffering with PMDD you need to speak to a qualified medical doctor
  • These symptoms affect your ability to function at home, work & in relationships

The good news!

  • As a community we have found that Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises can release the symptoms of Premenstrual tension in 9 out of 10 women
  • The naturally therapeutic neurogenic tremors stimulate neuroplasticity in our body and brain
  • Studies have shown that therapy can reverse the epigenetic changes to our body that result from trauma. I hope in time a clinical study is done on TRE and it’s affects on PMDD 
  • The best course of action is a block of One-on-One classes which will support you in this instance, before entering into the PMT Release Program, which we’ve seen helps many women release the symptoms of PMT from their life
