Recent research has concluded that there is no evidence linking the pre-menstrual time with mood changes in women.

This reminds me of the studies that showed that there was no relationship between children’s intake of sugar and moods and behavior.

With all “due respect” to research, it is possible to conclude almost anything if you include or exclude enough information.

Those of us who walk on earth, have had children, are in natural medicine know that there is a body of knowledge that is common sense.  It may not be properly researched to achieve the status of “scientific” fact, but it is offensive to attempt to discount what we know to be true.

If you ask a group of 50 men and 50 women if women have hormonal cycles and if their moods are effected, all 100 will agree….yes.

If you ask the same group if men have hormonal cycles and if  their moods are effected, all 50 women will agree…yes.  Men, not so much.

No “research” yet has shown that men have cycles, but clearly we do.  Sooner or later the information will show up.

Please be aware that there is a new surge of studies and reviews of previous studies that is attempting to disprove and discount things that are “common sense”.  Feel free to let me know what you find out there.  I will be happy to hear from you give my feedback.

I guess the point is that we know what we know.  Some knowledge lives in us by our experience of life.  It is valuable and we hope you will honor and use it to have a better life.
