The PMDD Cook Book has been lovingly created to give you practical guidance on what’s best to eat and when! It contains a shopping list for each phase of the menstrual cycle (follicular, ovulatory, luteal and menstrual) with meal suggestions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. It also includes evidence-based herbs and supplements, as well as tips and tricks to optimise your menstrual health and reduce PMDD symptoms through cycle-based nutrition.
This book is for you if you are:
1. Living with PMDD and at the end of your tether with trying to manage symptoms (you’ve tried 25 types of contraceptive pill, SSRI’s, various herbs, lotions and potions and are running out of ideas).
2. Recently diagnosed or think you might have PMDD and want to learn more about positive (and evidence based) ways to manage symptoms.
3. Curious about improving your menstrual health and overall wellbeing through nutrition.
What the book is not:
1. A "recipe" book: the meal suggestions are easy enough to interpret without going into measurements and cooking instructions. But, if you have questions or need guidance, feel free to drop us a line at email@example.com and we’ll be more than happy to help!
2. A replacement for medical treatment or care: as explained in the guide, I follow this approach along with my PMDD medication.
3. A miracle cure for PMDD. While cycle-based nutrition has been transformative in reducing my symptoms, it hasn’t eradicated them completely. And, depending what’s going on in life, some months are better than others (as I’m sure you can all relate)! But, what it has given me, is a vital sense of control and empowerment, not to mention more good days and a shorter "hell" week. And that’s definitely something worth celebrating and sharing!
4. A diet. No food groups have been cut-out. There is no calorie counting or strict regime. If you are vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free or gluten-free, feel free to substitute with your preferred alternatives.
