14 Aug Hormone Horoscope Apps now the official apps of the IIPMD
I’m proud to announce that my Hormone Horoscope Apps have been named the official apps of the Integrative Institute for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (IIPMD).
This organization’s mission is to help those challenged with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and premenstrual exacerbation (PME) by providing information about integrative support that can assist with managing symptoms.
PMDD is a medical condition affecting up to an estimated 8% of women with menstrual cycles. While it’s normal for hormones to impact your mood throughout the month, those with PMDD have significantly more intense mood changes that impact everyday life, such as depression, severe anxiety or thoughts of self-harm, during the second half of their cycle (the luteal phase). They may also experience physical pain and/or insomnia.
Those with PME may experience mood issues throughout their cycle, which then intensify in the days before menstruation.
The goal of the IIPMD is to provide menstruating individuals with access to information about these conditions as well as integrative treatment methods to help get proper diagnosis, reduce symptoms and connect with others challenged by the same conditions.
To learn more, visit the Integrative Institute for Premenstrual Disorders at IntegrativePMDD.org.
If you believe you may have PMDD or PME, there are treatments available. Don’t give up hope. And if you suspect someone you know may have one of these conditions, talk to that person about it. Though these conditions impact millions around the world, PMDD and PME are still not widely known…sadly, even among physicians. So, it’s not overstating it to say that bringing up this topic to someone you think is struggling with it can literally save their life.
