Lots of women are seeking out natural and alternative treatments to their commonly prescribed medications. Are you one of them? Are you tired of the side effects? Are you experiencing nausea, anxiety, or headaches? Those are all very common side effects of the most widely used prescriptions to treat PCOS.
Are you getting the results that you want? If you aren’t, it could be that those prescriptions aren’t what you are body is lacking after all. It would make sense to give your body what it needs.
Science shows you can heal your PCOS!
Our bodies were designed to be able to heal. However, we have to give them the right environment to do so. That’s what many women are doing according to an analysis of the current literature! S. Arentz and colleagues (2014) found 33 studies that involved PCOS and alternative treatments. Collectively, these 33 studies had 762 women who had been diagnosed with PCOS and were experiencing symptoms such as imbalanced FSH:LH ratio, insulin imbalances and sex hormone imbalances that contributed to weight gain, acne and hirsutism. The studied herbal remedies included Chasteberry (Vitex), Cinnamon, Licorice, Peony, Black Cohosh and Tribulus.
So what happened?
Improvements in insulin and glucose regulation, ovulation, hormone numbers and fertility were all seen within the studies after the use of the herbal medicines. The most significant results were seen with Chasteberry (Vitex) and Black Cohosh when compared to pharmaceutical usage! How awesome is that?! I love botanical medicine!
