healing-polycystic-ovary-syndromeTake control of your PCOS with changes in nutrition and lifestyle.Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the leading cause of female infertility. It is often discovered during the fertility journey and is a metabolic endocrine disorder. Symptoms include irregular menstrual cycles, lack of ovulation, and hormonal imbalance.

Amy Medling explains that the hormonal imbalance often means more androgen hormones are present. This can lead to male-pattern hair loss, hair growing in unexpected places, and hirsutism. Insulin-resistance symptoms can also appear, like skin tags, spare tire and darkened skin patches. Acne, brain fog and joint pain may be present. Mood disorders, depression and anxiety are common.

Most women with PCOS can get pregnant with fertility intervention. They tend to become fertile later in life. They often have higher ovarian reserves and experience menopause later in life.

Between 50 and 75 percent of women with PCOS are undiagnosed.

Examine your diet. Take care of yourself with nutrient-rich food. Be kind to yourself.

Listen as Amy joins Andrea Donsky and Lisa Davis to discuss how her new book can help holistically treat PCOS.
