Are you living with PCOS?


PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome causes mood swings,  weight gain, facial hair growth and perpetual cystic acne.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is the most common endocrine disorder of women of reproductive age, primarily categorized hyperandrogenism and ovulatory dysfunction.

 In a recent study of women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), researchers found a drop in testosterone (T) levels in women taking a resveratrol supplement.

It was found that the natural polyphenol was beneficial in lowing total testosterone levels over 23%.Compared with current treatments available in the U.S. for women with PCOS, the results of the trial indicate that a resveratrol supplement was equal to or better than oral contraceptive pills or metformin for the improvement of hyperandrogenemia

Resveratrol, most commonly found in wine, grapes, and nuts, is known to have cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory properties.

Naturopathic Medicine focuses on empowering lifestyle changes that you can learn and use into adult life. This is the cornerstone of PCOS treatment.  We create a treatment protocol with nutraceuticals, dietary changes and exercise to manage PCOS.

Some good news for those with PCOS. Losing weight improves your ovulation rate if you are overweight or obese with infertility due to PCOS. It also improves your chances of a full term pregnancy and live birth. 

Even if you have been prescribed oral contraceptive pills to boost ovulation you need a lifestyle plan to upregulate your metabolism and balance your hormones. 

Calorie restriction, increased physical activity and nutraceuticals that support weight loss play key roles in permanent weight loss. We integrate all three elements in our HCG permanent weight loss program and our Good Gut program. Both programs reduce cellular inflammation, increase energy and support consistent weight loss.
