PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) affects an estimated 6-10% of all women and most don't even know they have it. PCOS is a syndrome, not a disease. This means that it is reversible. Although PCOS is a very popular diagnosis for women with irregular cycles or ovarian cysts, it is not yet completely medically understood. One thing we do know: it responds very well to natural treatment.
The fact remain, the causes of PCOS are poorly understood. The most recent medical advances indicate that abnormal blood sugar response is a key underlying factor in PCOS. Other well acknowledged triggers included stress, oestrogen dominance and elevated testosterone levels. It's far more than just a reproductive problem- it affects an entire cascade of hormones and each PCOS sufferers experience with this syndrome is very different. PCOS is the leading cause of infertility in women, this being one of the most devastating symptoms of all.
