Premenstrual syndrome is a hormonal shift that occurs in the estrogen/progesterone ratio, usually causing premenstrual symptoms during the menstrual cycle. Most of the symptoms occur in a two week time frame before menstruation. The food and environment in which we live have an important role in hormone imbalance.
