Author: Mary M. Byers
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
September 2008
ISBN: 978-0-7369-2170-1
Genre: Women/Parenting

Every month our attitude changes and we become short-tempered and more-demanding. Our husband and children learn to avoid mom during ‘that time of the month,’ if they are wise. Mary Byers has suffered with the same dramatic mood swings and other symptoms. As a fellow sufferer, she offers help, hope, and relief and she shares what she’s researched, discovered and tested.

Written in a friendly, over-the-morning-coffee type style, THE S.O.S. FOR PMS offers plenty of encouragement as well as:

Ø specific symptoms and their causes
Ø foods and activities to avoid or indulge in to minimize PMS
Ø ways to ease the PMS impact on your spouse and kids
Ø God’s first aid for stress, depression and anxiety
Ø How to enlist help from others when PMS strikes

I enjoyed reading THE S.O.S. FOR PMS and might have even learned a thing or two. My home remedy for PMS is listed under things to avoid. That was a surprise to me. Learn how to cope with PMS and not let it steal any more of your time and energy. You and everyone you love will benefit from reading THE S.O.S. FOR PMS, especially if you implement the things that you read. At the end of the book, Ms. Byers offers to correspond with you personally to encourage you with a monthly newsletter. $11.99. 186 pages.

A Word from the Author
"It’s my hope that this book will bring help, hope and healing to moms who suffer from PMS. It’s been a source of despair in my own life but things are looking up now that I’ve developed my own coping plan. Those I interviewed for this book shared intimately about their own battles and I believe their stories, along with that of Callie’s (the main character in the book) will convince other women that it is possible to change their current response to PMS and encourage them to start today.”
