Use the endocrine regulating poses to rebalance the hormonal system and choose between the liver balancing poses or the spleen and kidney tonifying poses. If PMS is due to an excess Liver imbalance, symptoms will include: irritability, anxiety, anger, emotional instability, major mood swings, breast tenderness, and pain that is sharp in nature. If PMS is due to an deficient Spleen and/or Kidney, symptoms will include: bloating, weight gain, water retention, fatigue, lack of energy, food cravings, nausea, backaches, and pain that is dull in nature.
