Mayans Contribution To PMS

Primitive cultures tend to have many unifying features. Many of these early cultural groups have similar creation myths, birthing myths, stories of how stars got into the skies all seem to have both quaint and meaningful convergences that never cease to amaze me. So when I first read about the Mayan uterine massage techniques I always wondered what other cultures incorporated these techniques into their traditional healing techniques, and still haven't stumbled upon any, although many so called traditional massage techniques used by present day practitioners do now incorporate these theories. So as I am munching another one of my chocolate gifts from a patient (thanks patients, love the chocolate!) and reading a recent Scientific American about the origins of the chocolate plant, I'm trying to mull over possible connections. Could it be they had terrible PMS, needed uterine massage AND therefore had to invent chocolate for that time of month as well?
