The PMS Bible by Dr Katharina Dalton
This is the book that introduced the world to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), proving that it is a real - and treatable - condition. Since its publication, hundreds of thousands of women have found help for the symptoms of PMS including tension, mood swings, water retention and headaches and it has sold over 300,000 copies worldwide. In this latest edition, the author introduces PMS to a new generation of women. Fully updated, the highlights include how PMS affects school performance, especially in teenage girls, information on contraception options for women who may respond badly to the Pill, how PMS was 'hijacked' by psychologists and the pros and cons of this development. Dr Dalton also addresses the whole range of possible treatments - from self-care methods such as the three-hourly starch diet and relaxation techniques to the newest medical options. She even includes a chapter for men, to help them understand and support their partners who suffer from PMS.
