Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormone disorder that can lead to problems with ovulation, fertility, and insulin resistance. Some women with PCOS also have excessive hair growth, acne, and weight gain. While the cause of PCOS is unknown, there are certain risk factors that may increase your chance of developing the condition. Treatment for PCOS typically involves lifestyle changes and medications. There is also a functional approach to managing PCOS which may be beneficial for some women.
Functional approach involves making changes to your diet and lifestyle to help your body better process food and hormones. By making these changes, you may be able to improve your symptoms and manage your PCOS. This includes:
* adopting a healthier diet that reduces inflammation and enhances hormone detoxification
* adopting a low sugar or carb diet to reduce insulin resistance.
* taking nutraceuticals to reduce inflammation and enhance hormone detoxification.
* taking antioxidants to enhance the eggs health.
* work on balancing the hormones to improve fertility
