Premenstrual Support: Ease PMS Symptoms

Natural remedy for PMS and menstrual cramps

85-90% of all women experience some premenstrual symptoms.

PMS is a sign that the downward flow of the body's vital energy, known as Qi, is compromised. When the descending flow of the Qi has been disrupted at the onset of menses, it's not uncommon to experience pain including head pain or tightening of the jaw. PMS in Traditional Chinese herbalism is called "liver Qi stagnation" which is also a causal issue with moodiness and heightened emotions.

When the energetic system of the liver is smooth and not stagnant, a woman is far less likely to feel stressed out, impatient, irritable, angry or have the tendency to lash out emotionally at the world. In traditional Chinese herbalism Before The Flow™ tonifies the blood and regulates the menses.
