When you get the diagnosis of PCOS or PCOD, where do you turn? I was researching PCOS one day and as I searched for treatments and additional options of treatments besides hormone therapies and hot packs, I came up empty handed.
When you search PCOS you come up with a definition of:
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: A hormonal disorder causing enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges.
When reading further, it explains that PCOS has increase in androgens in your body. What are androgens and why is this important?! As I did more reading and research I began to ponder all the things I have learned about the body and what I have seen in my practice that helped patients with hormone imbalances.
This was it, I knew that this is my calling. I dove in head first to understand and get educated on PCOS, endometriosis and women infertility. PCOS, endometriosis and infertility have one major thing in common, they are all a symptom to the real problem (hormone dis-regulation). The primary issue has to be addressed in order for the secondary symptoms (cyst growth, abnormal cell growth, and inability to get pregnant) to resolve, and for you to become healthy again.
Our hormones are complicated to say the least. There are so many hormones, receptor sites, signaling, feedback loops, it’s hard to keep them straight. Regardless of what your conceptions are about hormones, they can be regulated by what we put in our mouths each day (or what we don’t). The way we eat and what we eat can make our system work well or make our system break down.
There are many ways to help your symptoms of PCOS, endometriosis and infertility, not just hormone therapy. At our clinic, the approach is patient centered. We are here to embrace how your body functions, identify why your body is driving increased production of androgens (or other irregularities) and help you get back on track with out drugs (hormones) or surgeries.
