Re WDDTY vol 14 no 8 (p 10), women with PMS [premenstrual syndrome] may suffer not only from low thyroid function, but often from a hyperactive thyroid. One 40-year-old woman with PMS admitted that she nearly killed her little girl before a period, such was her irritability. A 30-year-old woman with a hyperactive thyroid, and PMS, had a normal thyroid gland within two to three months after drinking two cups of rosehip tea daily, and taking four to six starflower oil (borage oil) capsules a day.
A large percentage of women with PMS suffer from hyperthyroidism. So, it's iodine that is their enemy. - Dr Anna Philippou, London
