I currently have a client who was trying to fall pregnant for 8 years who suffered from PCOS who was not having regular periods. Treatments were given in the form of supplements and liquid herbal medicines, dietary and lifestyle changes were given as well. We were able to establish a regular period and she became pregnant within 4 months of treatment. This was a great experience for both of us.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that is on the rise affecting more and more women when it comes to their fertility. It may be due to genetic and environmental factors. The main causes to PCOS is insulin resistance and obesity. Elevated insulin production affects the ovaries preventing ovulation and causes the body to increase in Androgen production. Obesity increases the risk of PCOS and being overweight cause’s insulin resistance.
Herbal remedies help to reduce the effects of high Androgens and to help stimulate and normalize ovulation and to protect the endometrium. PCOS increases the risk of female infertility and Naturopathy with combined herbal and nutritional supplements can help treat the causes of this condition. Using herbs such as Gymnema, Peony and Licorice can make a vast difference to a women’s infertility due to PCOS.
