PCOS

PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) is a result of insulin resistance which is usually, but not exclusively, due to a chronically high and unstable blood sugar. This in turn, is usually caused by an inadequate diet and stress. PCOS is a metabolic issue, not a gynecological one, which results in disrupted ovulation and androgen excess leading to abnormally long cycles or  amenorrhea. Acne and hirsutism are common. PCOS is the most common cause of infertility but is also most responsive to relatively simple lifestyle changes. 3 suggestions:

1. Eat somewhat larger, but fewer, meals with warm prepared real food. As in proper food. No snack food like smoothies, a piece of fruit, sandwiches or bars. Overeating is bad but satiety is important and will keep your blood sugar stable for longer. Make sure to include protein in every meal.

2. Use supplements to increase insulin sensitivity. Many herbs such as cinnamon, berberine and gymnema silvestre can be helpful as well as chromium, NAC, lipoic acid and carnitine. Saw palmetto helps with acne.

3. Use a low dose progesterone cream to stimulate ovulation and regulate the menstrual cycle.
