Dealing with the symptoms of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) can be daunting. Your hormones are out of balance. You make more estrogen than progesterone because you’re not ovulating regularly. You make way too much testosterone, which leads to hirsutism, or male pattern hairiness. And your imbalanced hormones can lead to obesity, insulin resistance, infertility, metabolic syndrome, and even uterine cancer. So how can you deal with PCOS?
The number one way to deal with PCOS is by supporting your hypothalamus
Your hypothalamus, which is at the root of polycystic ovary syndrome, can help you overcome the hormonal imbalances and side effects that come with this condition. For nearly twenty years now, my patients and clients using Genesis Gold® to balance their hypothalamus have been able to control their PCOS. Infertile PCOS patients are able to conceive, regulate their menstrual cycles, reduce hirsutism, and increase insulin sensitivity. Increasing insulin sensitivity allows them to lose extra body fat and helps reverse metabolic syndrome. However, it can take three to six months to start seeing results from Genesis Gold®.
2. Make sure that your diet is highly nutritious and plant-based
Your body needs healthy fats that are rich in monounsaturated fats. Fats like olive oil and avocado oil, as well as omega three fatty acids, which can be found in fatty fish and nuts. An adequate amount of protein to maintain your lean body mass is crucial to reversing insulin resistance. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes provides the fiber and micronutrients necessary to keep your body healthy and reduce inflammation.
3. Make sure you’re getting regular exercise.
Exercise has been shown to reduce insulin resistance by sensitizing insulin receptors. It can also help lessen excessive stress hormone production, which can lead to high DHEA levels. High DHEA levels contribute to high testosterone in polycystic ovary syndrome, which leads to midline weight gain and hirsutism.
