Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
These are some of the most common issues we see in women who have been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
PCOS is the most common form of hormonal imbalance affecting approximately 10-15% of women. PCOS is a complex condition and is classified as a “syndrome” because of the vast array of symptoms that a woman can present with. These symptoms are grouped together with very little understanding of the mechanisms that drive the disease process.
Women with PCOS typically spend years searching for a proper diagnosis. When they finally do get a diagnosis, they are offered very little help to resolve their symptoms. In fact, a lot of the medications commonly prescribed for PCOS symptoms make the underlying reasons for PCOS worse.
If you are frustrated or anxious about your ability to resolve your symptoms, we have the solution for you.
With a functional medicine approach, we address the root cause behind what is driving your PCOS. Each woman is unique; therefore, her treatment solution will also be unique.
One of the first questions we ask is, “How was your diagnosis made?”. It’s a common misconception that PCOS can be diagnosed through ultrasound alone. We want to ensure you have been given the correct diagnosis in the first place.
When it comes to treatment, we have identified at least six underlying causes, each of which can interact with each other forming an intricate web and leaving your doctors unsure of where to start.
We untangle this issue for you.
No PCOS woman is the same, each treatment is different, and your functional medicine doctors will target the biggest issues for you so that you can take back control over your health and body.
