Management of Menstrual Pain
Premenstrual Syndrome, referred to as PMS, is a disorder that ranges from minimal discomfort to severe, disruptive behavior and psychological issues in women all over the world.(1) Up to 80% of women report having some symptoms during the one to two weeks prior to menstruation. About 30% of women report PMS interferes with their normal lives and about 8% describe their symptoms as severe.
Symptoms may appear 7 to 14 days before menses and usually, subside with the onset.(2) Some of the manifestations associated with PMS can cause some women to dread their “time of the month.” The mild to severe personality changes only last a short time but can certainly rattle a household. Women can experience mood swings that can be anywhere from agitated and irritable to downright hostile! In fact, PMS has been used as a mitigating factor in legal defenses.(3)
Lethargy, depression, and fatigue are also typically prevalent with PMS, but physiological symptoms are certainly a common complaint about many women. These include breast tenderness and swelling, abdominal tenderness and bloating, joint and lower back pain, edema, diarrhea or constipation and acne.(4)
For many women, migraines and painful cramps are routine. The culprit responsible for bringing about menstrual cramps is prostaglandin.(5) Prostaglandin is produced in the lining of the uterus and this becomes the stimulus for the muscles to contract or cramp. There are two types of menstrual pain or dysmenorrhea – primary and secondary. Primary dysmenorrhea is when the woman has menstrual pains from the very start of her period. However, if the menstrual cramps are secondary to a medical condition like endometriosis, then it is called secondary dysmenorrhea.(6)
Headaches, particularly migraines, during PMS are caused by shifts in the levels of the female hormone estrogen. The estrogen levels drop right before the start of the menstrual flow. Premenstrual migraines regularly happen during or after the time when the woman’s hormones, estrogen, and progesterone, drop to their lowest levels.
Conventional Remedies vs Holistic Alternatives
Most women treat their discomfort during this time symptomatically and may take several different types of medication to combat each issue such as bloating, headache, fatigue and/or depression. These treatments may include antidepressants, NSAID’s (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), tranquilizers or sedatives and even diuretics.(7) However as with many pharmaceuticals, there may be side effects - the so-called treatment does more harm than the disorder or condition itself!
The acai berry properties have long been hailed by the South American Indians for their superior medicinal benefits in treating various health conditions. Female health issues have been of particular interest due to the important role women play in the culture. Decoction, an extract made into a medicinal preparation, is obtained from the acai roots, has been found useful in the treatment of menstrual pain. Acai berries contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps in controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is utilized for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Acai berries are rich in B-complex vitamins and vitamin-K. Niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) and riboflavin help the body in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
