Podcast Episode: PMDD Healing Podcast


Join Mandy and Charisma Whitefeather on the PMDD Healing Podcast. We dive in to why a brain-body approach makes all the difference when it comes to symptom relief from PMDD.

Got rage? Make sure to tune in for a different perspective on both the physiology AND the psychology behind rage and anger.

We cover:

  • Why a root-cause approach is so important when healing from PMDD
  • How our menstrual cycle impacts our brain chemistry and our nutrition needs
  • Why even if PMDD "runs in your family" you're not doomed to suffer forever.

Catch the episode here.

Healing PMDD Starts with Connection

Welcome to the PMDD Periodical! I'm glad you stumbled across this page.

One of the biggest joys in my career is partnering with determined individuals to help them reclaim their lives from PMDD so that they can live out their purpose. And as much as I'd love to meet you for coffee and give you a big hug (if you're a hugger,...

Recently diagnosed with PMDD? Here are 5 ways to get started.

If you’ve already been diagnosed with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), it requires no definition. You’re all too familiar with the monthly tidal wave that takes you out each month with symptoms ranging from severe mood changes, irritability, and rage to debilitating physical changes like headaches, cravings, and breast tenderness. It’s like PMS on steroids. Or perhaps you’re just starting to notice the cyclical nature of your symptoms and are wondering if there’s more to it.

While PMDD affects about 5% of people who menstruate, it’s possible that many more go undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed with conditions like bipolar disorder. Plus, we often assume these symptoms are common, normal, or that we just need to survive until the storm passes. It doesn’t help that research on PMDD is playing catch up. From what we know so far, there’s not one single cause or cure. Rather, it’s a complex condition with multiple contributing...
