Natural Remedies for PCOS

PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is the most common female endocrine disorder, affecting 10% of women of reproductive age. PCOS causes a multitude of symptoms; some are merely annoying and some are truly devastating to the patient. It is associated with an increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

  • Cysts on the ovaries
  • Acne, oily skin, or dandruff
  • Weight gain or obesity, usually with extra weight around the waist
  • Male-pattern baldness or thinning hair
  • Patches of skin on the neck, arms, breasts, or thighs that are thick and dark brown or black

Lifestyle Changes Recommended 

  • Eliminate alcohol consumption during the GI healing phase.
  • Avoid use of aspirin and NSAIDS and if you are on prescribed aspirin then consult your health care      provider.
  • Avoid all allergenic foods.
  • Control stress and practice good night sleep habits.

Dietary Recommendations

  • Limit processed foods and foods with added sugars.
  • Add more whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats to your diet. This helps to lower blood glucose (sugar) levels, improve the body's use of insulin, and normalize hormone levels in your body. Even a 10 percent loss in body weight can restore a normal period and make your cycle more regular.
