It is estimated that polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) affects about 8-10% of women of reproductive age. It is one of the most common causes of infertility and usually requires treatment to improve chances for pregnancy. With 200,000 cases of PCOS diagnosed each year in the U.S. families desiring to have a child can spend thousands, even hundreds of thousands of dollars on hormone injections, ovulation stimulating medication, intrauterine insemination, invitro fertilization – Many, with today’s technology are able to conceive…
What about the women who want a child more than anything, but simply do not have the financial resources to obtain these interventions or even explore adoption? In itself it can be a highly expensive journey.
So, what are women supposed to do when they are informed they have this syndrome? Often the accepted care and management includes a diabetic medication called metformin (Glucophage) to reduce insulin resistance. In addition, birth control is used to induce regular cycles and help side effects like acne and excess facial hair.
You are told there is no cure, to lose weight, and eat better (we ALL need to do that!). You may even be told you are at increased risk for adult onset diabetes and heart disease. What would you think if you learned this does not have to be? In fact, it can be resolved.
The KEY to reversing this “syndrome” is as simple as you want it to be…
1) Remove the toxins in your environment and from your diet. We ALL need to eat a nutrient dense diet.
2) Detox your body with the guidance of your healthcare provider.
3) See a qualified corrective care chiropractor.
