If you are forced to cope with the problems that polycystic ovary syndrome places on you then discovering methods to end this condition is essential. This is where PCOS Natural Cures enter the scene to save the day.
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 more benefits to your health compared to other more well known and prescribed ways of treating this condition.
Some doctors get the wrong impression and believe that PCOS can be managed with hormone replacement therapy. This is not only incorrect but it also can destroy 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 short sighted however as the unbalanced hormones is just a symptom of a root problem. Also, hormone therapy has been known to increase risks of stroke, blood clots and breast cancer.
Like hormone replacement therapy other drug based solutions miss the point because they try to stop PCOS symptoms not the root cause of PCOS. Some drug companies do understand that the base problems need to be addressed but do not end the problem but instead only temporarily relieve the problem ... meaning the PCOS is still there but only suppressed! As soon as you stop taking the drugs the menstrual pain, infertility, hair, weight gain 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 to this is Insulin Resistance. This is a condition where the body produces insulin which is used to take the sugars in your blood 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 because a small percentage of a large amount of insulin might work well enough..
What this means is that your body is flooded with the hormone insulin
This is the start of serious hormone imbalance which results in fluctuations of estrogen, progesterone and other hormones which sends your menstrual cycle into turmoil and thus ... PCOS happens.
So to overcome PCOS you must fix insulin resistance which requires a combination of a change in how you think, dietary changes and lifestyle changes which can bring your hormones back in line and cater for your insulin resistance so it does not happen again.
