The S.O.S. for PMS by Mary Byers - GIVE AWAY!

“…I contemplated the awesome truth that we are children of God and he cares about us. We matter, our spouses matter, and our children matter. Consequently, our response to the PMS challenge also matters since it’s part of our unique walk on earth.” (p. 185)

Mary Byers has written a book that contains a powerful message for women who struggle with PMS. (premenstrual syndrome) For those of us who have heard the phrase, “It must be that time of the month,” from our husbands, we know that there are monthly changes going on in our bodies that cause us to behave in ways that our friends and families come to dread. Too often, we become people that no one wants to be around – including ourselves! Thankfully, this chemical imbalance that many women struggle against has been identified, and Mary Byers has created a warm, personal guidebook that succinctly takes the reader through successful steps to combat this problem.

I have personally battled severe PMS since I was in my late teens. After reading Mary’s book, I realize that I have been very fortunate to have had physicians that understood this problem and were willing to guide me to successful treatment. Mary’s book contains both spiritually and physically sound advice, and for those who have not been successfully guided in the treatment of their PMS, this book is going to be a Godsend – literally!! From identifying the symptoms and the three most common ways to combat them, to revealing diet modifications and activities that will increase your body’s serotonin, Mary’s book is filled with practical advice for everyone! One chapter even contains open letters from both Mary and her husband about how to strategically deal with PMS! (her husband has a terrific sense of humor!)

Truly, this is a great PMS guidebook. It is written in an easy-to-understand, personable format that will appeal to a broad audience. I personally think that there will be many who will benefit from the knowledge contained in this book, and they will finally claim victory in this monthly battle!

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.”
