  • I don’t understand all of you complaining that it’s a guy narrating this. Why does it matter? Wether it’s a male or female, he’s a qualified doctor to speak on the matter. If you’re bothered by the fact that he “hasn’t experienced PMS” then you should probably just deal with yourselves because you “experienced PMS” and apparently that’s what qualifies you to remedy it, not the fact that he’s a qualified physician.

  • the best results that i’ve had was by following the Dajons health plan (i found it on google) I found it the best idea that I’ve tried.


  • Doctor: eat healthy
    Me:do you know how old i am and how much money i make?
    Doctor: at least relax
    Me:i wake up at 6:00 and go to school at 7:45 then have 6 classes that are each stressful on there own and then homework from at least 4 of those classes and 3 projects due in the next week.
    Doctor:…….ok sorry it gets better����

  • I don’t have my period and I’m 15….. I wonder what it feel like I do experience stomach pain like gas every month but I don’t have blood coming out so I don’t know what going on I went to doctor they tell me to take my iron/vitamin and I did still don’t have it 3 month later and btw I have anemia vitamin difency and I eat a lot of protein and stuff eat a lot than everyone else but still no

  • I don’t care about blood, I never have cramps, I want to kill hunger, that ruins each and every time my diet, can’t stand the period, hate it. What boost mood? Food

  • The only one time I could kill someone is before my period. I drive like Michael Sumacher, no patience, I cry from frustration,and god help the person who is trying to annoy me. Other than that I am a nice person��After my period ��

  • Why do you just start talking about the local city tap water that’s got seizure medication diabetes medication epilepsy medication why do you just run a test it cost $300 into the lab and wants a result of your local tap water

  • My period is really bad this month, but GOD DAMN AM I HUNGRY! I ate so much, but mostly sugar…����‍♀️, Anyways, I cant seem to get full. I’m so hungry constantly

  • Before watching this I was craving yogurt with granola, a yogurt smoothie, and pasta. I am waiting for my pain killers to kick in, my cramps hurt so much. I feel like my ovaries are about to exploded.

  • For some reason when I’m on my period I just sleep a lot and prefer to eat meat or spicy instant noodles with soft boiled eggs I don’t eat a lot though probably bc of all the sleeping

  • When your lactose or vegan you know the struggle of calcium �� (I’m lactose) milk or daily messes with me especially during periods

  • If y’all hate green foods and stuff like that like me I get a drink called green goodness by bolthouse farms it has the kale spinach and broccoli but with some citrus like kiwi and lemon to make it taste sweeter but still have it be good for periods. You can find it at Walmart, target, Rainey’s or any other grocery store.

  • How can you talk about Those pills taking a whole bunch of medication from other people’s water from the local water city Supply

  • mood swings:
    me: starts period
    me: calls my bf
    me: bae dont take me serious for 5 days
    my bf: ugh again im done why do i have to take this i hate when you are in this shit dont pour you emotions on me ugh fml im done!!!!
    me: but I am the one on period not you

  • You are mistaking PMS for the actual period. PMS is a condition that can occur BEFORE the period. This is a different phase involving different hormones and different symptoms/problems. Please correct your video title

  • Pms syndrome is never an excuse for poor and nasty behavior tho. For what concern me i start getting depressed and apatic 2 weeks before my period. I have to fight against a clouded mind. Not the worst thing in the world but quite upsetting.

  • I agree with how I shouldn’t be eating cold foods (and don’t forget about cold beverages too), but I’ve read that I shouldn’t be consuming anything that’s caffeinated (such as chocolate) when I’m on it…as that’ll also make it more painful though…=-_-= On the other hand, I enjoy eating “Caesar Salad”, as I find it “easy” to eat, since it tastes amazing to me!!! =^_^= I’ve also read that consuming hibiscus extract works like consuming rose extract as well…not to mention that hibiscus candy tastes SOOO “DELISH” too!!! =^.^= Nonetheless, I don’t get mood swings when I’m on it, rather, I just get frustrated with how it comes with the pain, that’s all…='( I was even shocked with how I saw a guy, who knew which pads to pick up and purchase at a store, for most likely their girl, and thought that was SUPER SWEET with how he didn’t look awkward about it at all!!! =^-^= Regardless, I feel like all of my narcissist jealous haters must have “PMS” 24/7 for bitching at me all the time, ROFL!!!

  • Dr Oz has no nutrition credentials and I’m really upset that you would broadcast information not based on evidence based research or from a registered dietitian nutritionist.

  • if you are craving chocate it means your body is low on zinc which you loose during loosing blood.. so take those zinc supplements

  • They didn’t mention anis tea. That works 100% for menstrual cramps. I make it strong; I leave the seeds inside the tea and eat them. I want a natural headache relief.

  • It is a real thing! I keep tract of my schedule…and normally I am even keel, love myself and others etc. 8 days before? Well, don’t come close to my breasts as they hurt like hell and the littleist comments make me want to rage and suddenly I am ugly and fat (which I normally don’t feel)

  • I can’t eat eggs, fruits, soya sauce, tomatoes and even chillies during my cycle. If I eat any of these my period stops within a day. I don’t know what to do?
    Oh! Or anything cold

  • Even for a Women in her 50’s? Maybe going through Menopause.?.������I believe in Green Tea. Homemade kind without sugar. Helps Cramps. I swear by it. Deained out isn’t the word…����If your Vegan…You can get Omega through Chia, Hemp Seeds. Meditate helps anything. And sleeping…☺️

  • I don’t understand other girls, chocolate doesn’t help.. Maybe it’s because I don’t like chocolate that much, idk. I don’t get mood swings either, and i hate tea.

  • It’s DEFINITELY a real thing! I’m going thru it now and it’s rough. Just my ability to accomplish anything….it seems impossible. I’m confused and distracted and I feel so heavy! My head hurts.ive cried off and on throughout the day and as much as I love my son, he is driving me CRAZY!

  • When I’m on my period, I become a different person with a completely different appetite. I try not to challenge this person because she tends to be almost superhuman. Whatever she wants, she gets! Then, when I’m not on my period, I spend the time repairing the damage she’s done. ����‍♀️��

  • I m only 11 years and I have no Idea about periods can someone tell me what happen when you eat the things that you should not have to eat in periods is this affect your body and you cant give birth to baby

  • Magnesium helps cramps. Cranberry keeps uterus walls clean. Evening primrose oil and b6 help elevate sensivity.
    Make sure your not vit d low.
    Yogurt helps if you don’t want heavy flow

  • I’m lactose intolerant for years Milk made my period cramps a living hell. It was the worst pain you could imagine. I couldn’t even move an inch. I had no idea that was the reason. Now I know never to have any dairy before or during my period, instead I take vitamin D and C pills. I find caffeine makes it worse too and chocolate overall just doesn’t have the best effect. Everyone is different. Dates are great for the iron though, I’m middle Eastern so we have plenty around the house. Gives me the energy I lost from the blood.

  • They let the doctor in green and The doctor in black talk the majority of the time. I wanted to hear more from the doctor in red. Don’t believe medical science isn’t also socially constructed.

  • I’m trying to help my girlfriend with her cramps but since all this covid 19 stuff is going around I’m trying yo find foods and Rematieas that are easily accessible during this, any suggestions??

  • It takes weeks to produce new blood cells… therefore it doesn’t make sense to me that the suggestion is to only eat iron when you loose blood?

  • I’ll take all the suggestions I can get on foods for PMSbut why does it have to be from someone with a penis? You know nothing about PMS ��

  • Yeah, I noticed big difference when I remove meat and dairy from my diet. Cramps are non-existent, and flow is normal/ not as heavy. When I start including meat and dairy in my diet, then my periods are pretty bad, I feel nauseous, tired, painful cramps, and the flow is heavier.
    But everyone’s body is different, so it’s up to everyone’s discretion:)

  • We have to go through birth we have to go through periods
    Then in the past we were put down called stupid and had to deal with sexism
    I feel this isn’t fair

  • bruh how did they forget with ginger, its literally medically proven as one of the best anti-inflammatory and antibnauseants out there?? for all my period having people, peel a thumb of fresh ginger and boil it in some hot water, add some honey if you’d like ������

  • I really like your videos but I don’t agree with the fish, salmon because it causes me more pain. So certain people could not have it

  • this is like a girl telling guys how to deal with their peen problems. (in a totally non sexual way) plus I need to hear these tips from someone who’s experienced pmsing and can tell me these tips truly work.

  • Im 10 and my period started 2 days ago,i didnt know what it was,thanks for the advice.IM UNCOMFORTABLE ON MY NAPKIN. IM PISSED LIKE SO PISSED.

  • When I first watched this video I started excessively eating bananas while cry from PMS and when my mom asked what I was doing I said I saw on a video that bananas help ease period cramps. then my mom started laughing at me

  • Madam, you cant consume honey with hot beverages…. it becomes indigestible and causes stones… if not aware please research before recommending..

  • Bananas. I heard about this recently and ate a banana on my last period, I literally felt nothing, no cramps or nausea or anything.

  • I get so moody during my period, my cramps are so bad that my back gets sore (not so bad that I have to see a doctor) I seriously can’t move because of my cramps, I just want to stay in my bed. I also have to have my heat pack, I can’t survive without it

  • it’s friday the 13th, and I got my period at 3:00 am. it’s also the third month of the year. Coincidence? also, lucky I’m not 13 years old That Would Make Me Feel HORRIBLE.

  • This is great it is so important for women to know that there are whole health approaches to fighting symptoms of menstruation and PMS.

  • THIS CHANNEL IS LITERALLY CALLED WITHIN AND I QUOTE: “….does make you fat, and then do feel better but you LOOK horrible”.


  • Leviticus 15:19 says, “When a woman has her regular flow of blood, the impurity of her monthly period will last seven days, and anyone who touches her will be unclean till evening.” Similarly, Leviticus 15:24 says. “If a man lies with her and her monthly flow touches him, he will be unclean for seven days; any bed he lies on will be unclean.” Finally, Leviticus 20:18 declares, “If a man lies with a woman during her monthly period and has sexual relations with her, he has exposed the source of her flow, and she has also uncovered it. Both of them must be cut off from their people.” As a result of these Scriptures, some hold that a married couple should not have sex while the wife is having her period.

    The problem with this view is that if the Scriptures are applied consistently, even touching a woman who is having her menstrual flow would be forbidden. Further, according to Leviticus 15:20-23, even touching something that the woman has also touched would be forbidden. Do these laws apply to us today? No, they do not. Why? It is important to remember the purpose of the Old Testament laws concerning blood. In the sacrificial system, blood was sacred (Leviticus 17:11). A woman’s “uncleanness” during her period was symbolic of the value placed on blood. As a result, contact with a woman who was having her period was forbidden.

    Christians today are not under the Old Testament ceremonial law (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:24-26; Ephesians 2:15). There no longer is a sacrificial system. Jesus’ blood sacrifice paid the penalty for sins once and for all. The Levitical ceremonial laws do not apply today. There is no biblical reason why a married couple cannot have sex during the wife’s period. Some doctors do not recommend it from a medical perspective, but there are no proven “dangers” of having sexual intercourse during a woman’s period. Usually women have no desire to have sexual relations during their period, so that is definitely another thing to consider. Basically, this issue must be decided by a husband and wife in the spirit of “mutual consent” as 1 Corinthians 7:5 describes.

    Gian Giorgio Trissino
    Both I and J were used interchangeably by scribes to express the sound of both the vowel and the consonant. It wasn’t until 1524 when Gian Giorgio Trissino, an Italian Renaissance grammarian known as the father of the letter J, made a clear distinction between the two sounds.

  • I just started yesterday ;^; and dis trash, n docter said I was supposed to start last year but no I didnt (good thing im home schooled)

  • Once I was cutting up potatoes and making french fries and my brother comes in the kitchen and eats one fry of the already ready plate and i literally start crying. EVEN I WAS CONFUSED CAUSE IT’S NOT EVEN A BIG DEAL. Then i started laughing cuz it was so stupid and he was concerned for me so he just hugged me and i was so touched that I started crying again. So in conclusion, PMS is the worst.

  • I’m here cause my gf in on her period
    So I wanna find thing to help her deal with it! I dam well know she likes ice cream hella lol

  • Nice Video clip! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you ever tried Peyadison Initial Principality (just google it)? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering how to get rid of depression minus the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my best friend Jordan after a lifetime of fighting got amazing success with it.

  • I just started my period and before i heard from my friends who had it before me and i remembered they said not to eat/drink some things-

  • NO dairy whatsoever during PMS and your period, especially if you have IBS,plus a heavy period,trust me,that delicious icecream will make everything worse

  • Diet makes a big difference, but in correlation so does the products we use. If you can find an alternative to store bought tampons like homemade cotton tampons, period cups, etc. Forgive the bluntness, but this is informative. Not using tampons can help reduce the amount of cramping, bleeding, and clotting. Not to mention the idea of the fibers tearing off the tampon is kinda disturbing. Or if you are one of the lucky ladies that can just use pads look into safer pads not made with all the potentially harmful materials, and all that plastic that traps heat and moisture. I know different direction from food and pain. Also, a helpful tip for those who are more prone to infections from products. Great video btw!

  • Why don’t I see everyone commenting about the fact that she literally says that being fat means looking horrible? That is truly disgusting to me. Fat on your body is absolutely not horrible. You dont have to be thin to be beautiful and feel good about yourself. If you’re reading this and you feel bad because of what she said. SHE needs to learn, and theres not a single thing wrong with your body fat. Its normal and as long as its not affecting your health ITS FINE

  • I made some banana walnut bread not knowing that it would help my period. Bananas also have magnesium which is also beneficial for this time. So I’m sipping on some soy milk with my banana bread lol and it’s soothing. Estrogen is low during first week of menstral cycle so soy really helps! (Soy can elevate estrogen)

  • So, up until 1:45 you just spread the word about how the main problem with pms and period is being cranky. Oh yes, being cranky is the main stereoty….I mean issue here.

  • Cant imagine how much i suffer in my periods…like no meds work for me..but…Ginger tea (any time)and turmaric mixed in red tea on empty stomach teally work for magic

  • Watching this on my period whilst eating a big @ss chocolate brownie, after eating some lamb samosa & bbq wings. But I’ve taken my supplements though ��

  • Traditionally, Hawaiian women would go to a hale peʻa during menses. Not because of “impurity” but as a time of balancing, reflection and rejuvenation. A mini-vacay!

  • I crave chocolate, and dairy so much starting a day or two before. Since dairy makes it all worse. I love the almond milk. Sometimes golden milk tea. yum.

  • This YouTuber is actually my favorite videos.because is share what you have to eat when period as don’t forget like my comment

  • but the food recommendations have NO medical basis at all. you better avoid dairies as well. they contain a lot of hormones that destroy the homorne balance within us and makes pms worse. also pms is PREmenstrual, cramps and everything come during the period.

  • My period always starts at school and it’s sucks, and most of the time, it’s the month where we’re running the mile. ������ I’m running tomorrow and I’m on my period
