As my area of expertise is Menopause, I googled natural treatment for PCOS - lots of helpful info came up so I suggest you do the same. Here is an excerpt from Dr. Andy Weil's website:
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that can cause missed or irregular periods, multiple cysts on the ovaries, excess hair on the face and body, elevated insulin levels, excess weight (particularly around the middle), high blood pressure and acne. Women who have typically have high levels of androgens, which are male hormones normally produced in small amounts in all women's bodies. The cause is unknown. PCOS may affect between six and 10 percent of all women.
Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., director of education for the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, says that PCOS is principally a metabolic problem and that many treatment approaches are similar to those for insulin resistance. For example, she says that exercise is "an absolute must - no exceptions!" This means exercising for at least 30 minutes every day.
I recommend the following dietary changes:
Adopt my .
Avoid conventionally raised beef and dairy products. (They may contain residues of estrogenic hormones used as growth promoters.)
Increase your intake of whole soy foods, including tofu, tempeh, soymilk, and edamame. The isoflavones in soy may help with the hormonal imbalances
