Very helpful book  Feb 26, 2010
This book was a quick read with lots of helpful tips about how to reduce the symptoms of PMS. The author keeps the subject light by interjecting humor throughout the book but at the same time treats the sometimes emotionally painful issues (yelling at a loved one) with care. This book, I think, has changed my life dramatically. If I ever met the author I would give her a big hug!
Easy-to-read and understand  Oct 26, 2008
The SOS for PMS is an easy-to-read pick-me-up resource handbook that doesn't just offer quick fixes to PMS but also lasting results. It is not one of those manuals and educational references that bores you to death with endless physiological-medical details and unfathomable terms you can't even spell out. On the contrary, the book focuses on the emotional awareness and management side so that women are able to accept, understand and act on their PMS accordingly.

The book shares a clear and brutally honest portrayal of what's really happening (and why it's happening) when a woman is under the influence of the tyrant PMS. The story installment at the beginning of each chapter makes it easy for readers to relate to the topic currently being discussed. Aside from practical strategies (which are also helpful not just during PMS reign), it also provides hope & encouragement from other women (who've been through the PMS misery) and helpful advice from experts in the field. There were also useful tools and information like nutrition do's and dont's, sleep deprivation, herbal supplements, etc. stated that you can use to maintain your health and your family's well-being.

I think one of the things that sets this book apart from the others is the chapter about "PMS and Faith". I don't think there's a PMS-related book in the market today that tackles faith-related issues while being logical.

On a last note, while PMS may not be ultimately "curable", it is manageable. Geoffrey Redmond, M.D., emphasizes that the problem is not the hormones themselves but how a woman's body reacts to them. So, it's really up to the woman to manage her symptoms if she wants a pain-free pre-menstrual period.


I wish the author had inserted a little bit of humor in the book. It's a serious subject and women who have low attention span (or men who may be interested in reading the book) may not be able to endure the 186 pages. But overall, the book is not only reader-friendly and insightful but also uplifting and helpful. It is still highly recommended!


** Silence is the enemy of healing.

** When you say yes to life, you automatically say no to something else. That's why it's important to know the price of your yes.

** It's one thing to understand why questionable behavior is occuring. It's another to do something about it.

** There's a direct connection between what you eat & drink and how you feel.

** Eating about 3-4 hours in small amounts can regulate blood sugar more rapidly than eating in traditional "3 squares" and can help avoid a rapid drop in sugar level thus preventing meltdowns that might occur if too much time elapsed between snacks and meals.

** Experts recommend 4 ounces of water every hour you are awake. If you wait to drink until you're thirsty, your body's fluids are already depleted.

** Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain that has an enormous influence over many brain functions. The functions of serotonin are numerous and appear to involve control of appetite, sleep, mood, behavior (including sexual behavior) and depression. When serotonin is at an ideal level, you feel mellow and relaxed, hopeful and optimistic. You have a sense of being at peace with life. Low serotonin levels can result in feeling depressed, having a short attention span, feeling "blocked" or scattered, acting impulsively, feeling suicidal, and craving sweets and simple carbohydrates to quickly increase the serotonin level.

** Sleep, sunlight, sex and exercise increase serotonin while caffeine, alcohol and stress lower serotonin.

** Thirty minutes of aerobic exercise is approximately equivalent to 20 mg of Prozac. That's how powerful exercise is!
"Taking control of PMS..."  Oct 11, 2008
"Taking control of PMS..."
I remember well those days when I felt irritable, bloated, headachy, and out of sorts. I did not know why I felt that way until I started a journal. That was when I saw the monthly cycle.

Author Mary Byers brings knowledge and wisdom to this topic. She has thoroughly researched PMS. In The S.O.S. for PMS, the topic is discussed from the perspective of motherhood. It is difficult to deal with the stress of a spouse, children, and PMS, all at once.

Byers includes a list of both physical and behavioral symptoms. I was particularly impressed with the suggestions for coping or lessening PMS. Byers includes making good choices such as nutrition, avoiding caffeine, and exercise. She always discusses medication and faith. The S.O.S. for PMS is easy to read and understand. Where was this book 30 years ago when I needed it!? I recommend this book for all women. It will bless them and their families.
Essential guide for dealing with PMS  Sep 26, 2008
SOS for PMS by Mary M. Byers is an eye-opening, honest look at how premenstrual syndrome effects women and their families. Byers bravely tells about her own struggle with PMS that included depression, fatigue, and blow ups with her husband and children, some so extreme they verged on abuse. She uses a fictional woman named Callie at the beginning of each chapter who goes through her own battle and then takes Byers' recommendations and finds relief. The big three factors that can effect PMS are nutrition, stress, and exercise, and Byers includes ways to deal with all three to lessen the effects of PMS. From cutting back on caffeine to taking a walk and asking your husband to bring supper home to cut back on stress, the book is full of terrific ways to cope. Byers stresses that this is a problem with no quick solution. It takes planning and long term goals. Making a chart with not only physical symptoms, but mental as well help determine when what Byers refers to as "Black Tuesday" is coming. She has advice for husbands, including a letter from her husband with his own coping techniques. Byers promises that there is hope. It might come in the form of medications, exercise, or a combination of all her ideas, but there is hope that women don't have to suffer every month.

Great Book!  Sep 17, 2008
Author Mary Byers has her finger on the pulse of mothers across America. She seems to be able to pinpoint the areas where women need the most help and encouragement. Her latest book, S.O.S. for PMS surely hits the mark. In this book she not only describes symptoms of Post Menstrual Syndrome, but offers help need to not only cope, but thrive during your monthly cycle. I wish a book like this had been written years ago!

I highly recommend S.O.S. for P.M.S. for women of all ages, but especially for younger women so they can get a jump on strategies to employ early on.
