Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Naturopathic Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Treatment

PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is a condition that disrupts a women’s reproductive hormones and her metabolic function. It has many presentations that do not even include ovarian cysts. The disruption to the reproductive hormones cause elevated testosterone levels with low progesterone resulting in anovulatory cycles, decreased fertility, acne, hair thinning, menstrual irregularities and pronounced PMS.  The influences on the metabolic system generally included weight gain, obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome (pre-diabetes) and diabetes.

PCOS puts a woman at an increased risk of insulin resistance (or pre-diabetes), diabetes, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, infertility, ovarian cysts, complications during pregnancy and estrogen dependent cancers (endometrial and breast cancer) and obesity. Women who think they may have PCOS should come in and get tested. The sooner we can screen for these complications, the sooner we can treat your current symptoms and prevent other problems from developing.

At Flow Natural Health Care we can diagnose, treat and manage all aspects of PCOS including fertility, weight loss, glucose regulation, and all menstrual complaints.
