Can allergy medication help relieve PMDD symptoms?

Claritin vs. PMDD -
Can OTC allergy medication help relieve PMDD symptoms?

If you suffer from PMDD then you’ve probably heard women raving about Claritin helping with their symptoms. So, what’s the deal with that?

Can Claritin and other over-the-counter allergy relief medications help with your PMDD?

Could it be that easy? Well, yes. And let me tell you why…

My name is Charisma Whitefeather and I’m the headmistress here at the Sacred Cycle Mystery School where we empower women to heal and to rise, because Life’s Too Short to Be I right?!

I suffered from PMDD for years and in this blog I share what natural remedies worked for me.

So, what’s the connection between PMDD and allergy medication?

Well, the connecting link is histamines.

Histamines are organic compounds involved in your body’s immune responses, and they regulate physiological functions in the gut and they also act as neurotransmitters for the brain, spinal cord, and, here’s the kicker, your uterus.

Yepp, histamines regulate things like your sex drive...and your ovulation!

So the thing is, just before you ovulate and before your period starts, that’s when the histamine levels in your body spike.

And high histamine levels are responsible for brain fog, nausea, insomnia, headaches, breast tenderness and irritability. Yes, irritability!

Do any of those symptoms sound familiar?

Hello Hell Week!

Your sensitivity to hormonal fluctuations causes your PMDD, but if you’re also sensitive to histamines, then lowering your histamine levels can really make a difference.

As you know, I’m all about natural remedies, so I’m not a big fan of Claritin or any of these other medications for allergy relief.

There are natural ways to lower your histamine levels.

So, how can you lower your histamine levels naturally?

  1. By taking supplements like magnesium, B6, SAM-E 
  2. By cutting down on foods with high histamine levels

Foods high in histamine are tomatoes, avocados and fermented foods like sauerkraut and kombucha. And dairy: cow’s milk and cheese.

Oh no! No milk?! No cheese??

Are you seriously asking people to stop eating cheese, Charisma?!?!

I get it, I used to love cheese. But let's get serious for a moment, cutting out dairy doesn't seem half as bad as going through Hell Week every month. Am I right?!

And there you have it: PMDD relief by lowering your histamine levels.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Oh, and if you’re not sure which supplements to take for your PMDD, I have a really great resource for you: a PMDD supplement guide, you can download it here for free.
