Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
The Hidden Metabolic Syndrome. Yes, PCOS is a metabolic syndrome!
And did you know that women cycle internally for up to 7 years after their period has stopped?
This is what your conventional doctor won't tell you since he's too busy covering up your symptoms.
Any of the following symptoms could point to PCOS (this is not an exhaustive list):
- Irregular cycles
- Spotting in the middle of the cycle
- Up and down with moods
- Difficulty losing weight
- Hair loss
- Blood sugar problems
PCOS cases are "perfect" for Functional Medicine since they involve a combination of dietary adjustment, adrenal healing and cycle correction (all of which are generally ignored by conventional physicians). Self-diagnosis and treatment is NOT recommended.
