Ask Dr. Orloff

Do empaths have more severe premenstrual symptoms?

Question: Hi Dr. Orloff,

I'm wondering if you have any thoughts on embaths and pms symptoms. Do empaths have worse symptoms or is it unrelated? Also, is obsessive thinking related? Thank you for reading and thank you for your videos.
Sincerely,
Leah

Answer: Dear Leah,

Empaths have very sensitive bodies and often have strong responses to hormonal fluctuations. I've worked with empaths who have significant pms. I would suggest that you practice meditation techniques and the techniques for self-nurturing in Emotional Freedom that I suggest. Also, as much as you can, spend time with positive people, not those who will aggravate you. With the special care and self-nurturing, the days before your period can become times of discovery and peace.
All the best,
Judith
