  • i don't do anything. i have never really noticed bloating before either. i eat well, drink lots of water and exercise well...maybe that is why i don't have these issues. do you consume a lot of salt and not enough water? 2 Liters a day is usually recommended. if your body is holding water there is usually a reason...don't mess w/ mother nature!

  • Try a low sodium, dairy free, meat free diet for two weeks before your period.

  • Uva Ursi-- it's a leaf. You can buy it at a natural grocery store. Brew it as a tea. You'll pee a lot. I also talk brisk walks with the dogs.

    Not safe for pregnant women.
