Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS is one of the many conditions
that are eased for many women by the use of 5-HTP.
PMS affects teenagers as well as their pre-menopausal and
mothers. PMS embraces all social classes and ethnic
groups. PMS has far reaching impact, since it is not only
the woman with PMS who suffers, but it is often a great ordeal
for her partner, family, friends, and workmates.
Menopause finally brings an end to premenstrual symptoms. This
remedy may be either natural menopause or a surgical menopause, with
removal of the ovaries. There is some evidence that PMS symptoms
gradually decrease from their peak levels of severity even before
menopause. During menopause, the Serotonin levels change. Whether the
body is being affected by the hormones progesterone or estrogen, we're
not quite sure. Menopause brings its own list of symptoms. These may
include hot flashes, anxiety, depression, mood swings, irritability, and
many other unpleasant physical and psychological changes. Many of
these disruptive tribulations may be dramatically relieved by the use
of 5-HTP without the unpleasant side effects caused by prescription medications.
Premenstrual Syndrome and Menopause Management with 5-HTP will give you a clear and easily understood insight into the use of 5-HTP for the management of PMS and Menopause with 5-HTP.
Alternative medicine, its methods, and medicinals are
all too often sensationalized. Extremists, health food purveyors,
promoters of herbals and supplements, and other zealots tend to hail every new development,
discovery as a panacea that will transform people's
lives. On the other hand, a staunch group of conservative
physicians are convinced that any remedy not grounded in age-old
medical tradition, or developed in university, or hospital research
lab is nothing short of charlatanism.
We feel both opinions are equally flawed.
Many physicians seem to have forgotten, or never learned, that many of the drugs prescribed today are
manufactured chemical reproductions of remedies found in
nature, used successfully by healers and physicians for countless generations.
The intelligent physician, and the intelligent patient must consider the facts and make an
educated decision about new products and techniques. Recall that
a few years ago the effectiveness of acupuncture was pooh-poohed
by most Western physicians, who didn’t think the subject worthy of
consideration. Nevertheless, any procedure that has been practiced for
over 4,000 years must be evaluated with an open and impartial mind.
The same is true of 5-hydroxy-tryptophan, or 5-HTP, as it is popularly
known, as well as its precursor, the neurotransmitter Serotonin.
Much has been written about 5-HTP, Serotonin and even more has been rumored. However all
too often, rumors become sensationalized. Wish becomes
supposition, suppositions became theories, and theories become facts all
spread through whispers and unfounded statements. That is how
"panaceas" are born. And when someone figures out how to get rich
from a certain panacea, there is no stopping the frenzy.
It is not our purpose to sensationalize 5-HTP, Serotonin, or any
other product. We merely intend to examine these chemicals, products,
and end product, and the claims being made in connection with them,
in order to provide objective data that will help you make educated
