Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, or PCOS, is a common hormone endocrine disorder that affects 1 in 10 Australian woman. This syndrome can alter the way women’s bodies react to certain hormones, especially insulin. This can result in higher levels of insulin being produced which causes higher levels of androgens (male hormones) to be manufactured. This article will explore the possibility of PCOS natural remedies and whether they can help.
While all women have some androgens women with higher levels can exhibit masculine features such as acne or extra hair on the face or body. Other symptoms vary including irregular and painful periods, acne, infertility, weight gain.
There isn’t a conclusive test to define the syndrome or help women in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, which is unfortunate since PCOS has been linked to a number of severe health risks, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
There is no known cure for this type of syndrome and while medication and hormone therapy can provide some benefit there are often side effects. The level of benefit varies from patient to patient, and medications and medical procedures can be costly, time consuming and even damaging to a woman’s body. For these reasons, several women in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney choose to seek a holistic treatment, and we’ve gathered some of the most effective methods for dealing with PCOS.
Studies have shown that certain vitamins, and other dietary supplements, can help alleviate common symptoms associated with this syndrome. Vitamin D, as well as calcium, can go a long way in relieving symptoms, and cinnamon has been shown to help improve a woman’s overall menstrual cycle. Flax seed can balance androgen levels, a key component in managing PCOS symptoms, and spearmint tea has also been shown to help lower androgen levels. Fish oil, another versatile and natural treatment, has a number of health benefits, including regulating the menstrual cycle and dealing with elevated androgen levels.
