Diminish Bloating Caused by Your Monthly Cycle

Menstruation is a normal and routine part of a woman's life.

Yet, a number of things can occur that can cause a woman
pain at that time. One such thing is the retention of water
that makes women feel bloated.

Premenstrual water retention is a phenomenon that
accompanies menstruation for many women. Retained water can
cause the breasts to enlarge in an uncomfortable way. The
excess fluid is lost during menstruation and this can lead
to several after post-menstrual effects, depending upon body

According to David B. Young, Ph.D., Professor of Physiology
and Biophysics at the University of Mississippi in Jackson,
it's not known as to why women experience premenstrual fluid
retention although there are a few theories. Dr. Young says,

"It's a huge question, and certainly hormonal changes are
involved, but nobody has a clue as to exactly how to explain
it." (

Despite this problem's mysterious origins, there are an
abundance of cures. Mother Nature is the largest source of
such cures.

"Many herbs act as diuretics-that is, they help your kidneys
remove water from your body," says Michael DiPalma, N.D., a
naturopathic doctor and director of natural medicine at the
Village at Newtown Medical Center in Pennsylvania.

Drinking two to four cups of dandelion leaf tea a day is a
good remedy for temporary bloating. If you don't like tea,
you can also try one or two capsules of dried dandelion
leaf, according to Dr. DiPalma.

Lack of potassium can raise a person's blood pressure and
potential for fluid retention. Consuming potassium-rich
foods such as fruits and vegetables will help minimize

Another problem that goes hand in with water retention is
the gain and loss of weight during and around menstruation.

People who retain body fluids know how easily weight can

"Weight fluctuations of as much as four to five pounds in a
single day are not uncommon in women with fluid retention
problems," says Marilynn Pratt, M.D., a physician
specializing in women's health. (

According to Dr. Pratt drinking at least eight glasses of
water a day is another way to safeguard against water
retention. This ensures a proper balance of minerals in your
body and removes excess salt that may cause water retention
from the body.

Carbonated and alcoholic drinks may also trigger bloating.
So try to limit your consumption of them. You also want to
try to avoid gas-producing foods like fried and fatty foods,
eggs, sugar and sugar substitutes, wheat, and many
pre-packaged foods.

Women suffering from water retention can also use
Hydrozyne™. It is a product that helps ease bloating,
swelling, and weight gain before and after menstruation.
Hydrozyne™ is available at Amazon and at
