Dr. Ray Rubio, practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine and licensed acupuncturist in Los Angeles on the use of traditional Chinese medicine as an alternative treatment for premenstrual syndrome (PMS):

PMS is one of the most successful areas of treatment for Chinese medicine. If a woman suffers from PMS, she should be getting acupuncture and herbal medicine for sure. It's very easy to treat. It responds very quickly.

There have been numerous studies, controlled blinded studies done to show the efficacy of it. That was one of the areas that was studied by the National Institutes of Health. It found that acupuncture was quite successful in treating PMS. No woman should have to live with severe mood swings and cramps and everything else that goes along with PMS.
