Post #1 of 2: PCOS, a disorder that over the years is being talked about more and more. From the stand point of health to the stand point of fertility. Polycystic ovarian syndrome for sometime can do undiagnosed leading to infertility, diabetes, mood disorders, endometrial cancer, fatty liver, sleep apnea, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, high BP and heart disease. The good news is it is EASILY treatable. Not only easily treatable but easily treatable naturally with food and lifestyle modifications. Yes its reversible!! I know if you look online it will say that “there is no known “cure” for PCOS” BUT, the underlying issue is insulin resistance. This underlying hormonal cause is 100Q% reversible! 🔹
The most prevalent sign of PCOS is what’s known as “androgen excess,” or too many male hormones (androgens) produced in the body. This can lead to symptoms like acne, abnormal hair growth and mood issues. These include testosterone, androstenedione, DHT, and DHEA. 🔹
A second diagnostic sign is ovulatory dysfunction: One of the most well-known effects of PCOS is problem with ovulation. This can manifest as oligomenorrhea (irregular periods) or amenorrhea (missing periods). Many women with PCOS experience abnormally heavy, short or long menstrual cycles, which also falls under the heading of ovulatory dysfunction.
Lastly, polycystic ovaries: Sometimes, the ovaries will form what’s called a “functional ovarian cyst.” A sac forms on the surface of an ovary around a maturing egg. Usually, the sac goes away once the egg is released. If the egg isn’t released or the sac closes around the egg and fills with fluid, it becomes a functional cyst. The term “polycystic” literally means that a woman’s ovaries have multiple small cysts on them. -Dr Axe
According to Dr. Lee, women who are estrogen dominant (low progesterone levels), have been shown to have high circulating insulin and cortisol levels. This has been shown to be a precursor, as well as a correlating factor to developing PCOS.
