Natural Pcos Treatments – How You Can Cure Pcos Forever
If you are forced to cope with the problems that PCOS imposes on you then finding a way to cure this condition is essential which is where Natural PCOS Remedies come in.
Natural treatments are the safest and most effective things you can do for stopping PCOS because natural methods treat the root cause of the problem. Natural cures also have a number of benefits compared to other more well known and prescribed ways of treating this condition.
Hormone Therapy – Many doctors mistakenly believe that PCOS can be managed with HRT. This is not only wrong but it also can hurt a woman’s health! Hormone therapy basically tries to normalize hormone levels especially estrogen because the symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome are caused by hormonal imbalances. This is not as good as it sounds however as the unbalanced hormones is just a symptom of a deeper problem. Also, HRT has been known to increase risks of stroke, blood clots and breast cancer.
Drugs – Like hormone replacement therapy other drug based solutions miss the mark because they try to tackle the symptoms not the root cause of PCOS. Some drug companies do understand that the root issues need to be fixed but do not solve the problem but instead only temporarily relieve the problem … this means it is STILL THERE! As soon as you stop taking the drugs the hair, acne, weight gain, infertility, menstrual pain and all the other PCOS problems will return. Not to mention many women suffer terrible side effects when on certain drugs.
So What root cause of PCOS is there you are probably wondering and how do you fix it?
The answer is Insulin Resistance. This is a condition where insulin, which the body produces is used to take convert blood sugar to feed to the body for various functions – but the insulin is not very effective. As such, the body makes huge amounts of insulin in the hopes that more insulin will equal more energy as a small percentage of a lot might be enough.
The end result is a body flooded with insulin which is a hormone.
This causes massive knock on effects to your hormone balance which results in fluctuations of estrogen, progesterone and other hormones which sends your menstrual cycle into turmoil and thus … PCOS happens.
So to fix PCOS you must overcome insulin resistance which requires a combination of a change in diet, how you think and also a bunch of other lifestyle changes which can balance your hormones and cater for your insulin resistance so it does not happen again.
