Premenstrual Syndrome

A 41-year old female with past drug/alcohol/cigarette addictions since teenage years quit drugs 17 years ago but still has desire for alcohol when under stress.  She has also had strong cravings for junk food/salty food, and these cravings were particularly heightened at around the onset of menstruation; they were only worsened by the fact that she cannot eat soy and berries due to her food allergies.  She could not focus well and she had depression.  Following one-month’s acupuncture treatments, her premenstrual and alcohol cravings have subsided and her focus has improved substantially.
