Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome? Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects the hormones, the ovaries, and the eggs which are developing within the follicle.

What are the possible causes of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome? The underlying causes of PCOS may be hormonal or hereditary.

What are the symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome? Symptoms may include irregular periods, late or absent ovulation, excessive facial hair, obesity (though many PCOS patients are thin), light headedness when you havenít eaten, skin thickness, and persistent acne.

Treatment for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: It is our view that appropriate treatment must

consist of regulating the hormones naturally, in order to result in a healthy pregnancy for a patient with PCOS. Because PCOS can result in unhealthy vasculature, lipid levels, and androgenic hormones, if untreated, the health of the mother and her resulting children will be impacted negatively. PCOS can induce late ovulation, failure to ovulate, and if a pregnancy occurs, it will have a much higher chance of ending up in miscarriage. Hence, our treatment protocol for PCOS consists of a regimen of dietary and nutritional guidance, exercises and acupuncture to improve blood flow to the ovaries, and herbal remedies to regulate the hormones and naturally induce a healthy ovulation while also addressing the issues of stress. PCOS can be cured, naturally.
