What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)?
PCOS is a condition that affects women’s hormone levels, and they produce high levels of male hormones. It affects how the ovaries work, and women with PCOS tend not to have regular periods; therefore, it can be harder to get pregnant.
Many women with PCOS struggle with fertility and getting pregnant unless they start to look at the cause of their symptoms and seek help. PCOS is also associated with an increased risk of developing other health concerns, such as type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol levels.
The Conventional Approach to PCOS
The conventional approach to tackling PCOS symptoms would be offering products to help with thinning hair, acne, and regular periods. In traditional medicine, there is no cure for PCOS. If you are overweight, you would usually be recommended to eat a healthy, balanced diet.
Fertility issues can also be treated with medicine or a surgical procedure. Unfortunately, the conventional approach does little to help you deal with gut health issues and inflammation that also play a role in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
The Functional Approach to PCOS
Functional medicine is “whole body” medicine. It means we address the entire body and teach our practice members the correct way to achieve balance through nutrition and long-term lifestyle changes.
Functional medicine shines when it comes to addressing chronic illnesses and hormone imbalances like PCOS that need attention in many systems in your body – from insulin to metabolic hormones and your digestive health.
We successfully reverse polycystic ovary syndrome because we also deal with deeper issues that keep your hormone levels from functioning correctly.
Issues include general inflammation (typically high in practice members with hormone imbalances). When the body is very inflamed, your hormonal balance (insulin, cortisol, thyroid, etc.) is often off, impacting your ability to lose weight.
