PCOS Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Do you have irregular or no periods? Excess male pattern hair growth? Weight that wont shift? Sugar cravings?
These uncomfortable symptoms could be from this common hormonal disorder.
Treatment involves clearing the body of the hormone excess, reducing environmental exposure to artificial hormones and re-establishing stable hormone production.
Its not normal to have severe pain, heavy clotting, spotting prior to the period, ovulation pain and an irregular cycle.
In less severe cases it can just be a matter of resetting the hormonal regulation with some specific herbs. For others it could be a sign of Endometriosis.
This condition is considered to be genetic and strongly influenced by environmental factors. These can include chemical laden cleaning products and xenoestrogens found in the sprays on our food. Its the livers job to clear chemicals so assisting detoxification is vital.
Reduction of inflammation reduces pain so we have a thorough look at your dietary habits. Eating a healthy plant based diet is recommended to supply alkalising nutrients and fibre to clear excess hormones.
These are another hormone imbalance that can cause heavy bleeding and pain. Once again the principles of detoxification, avoidance of chemical and xenoestrogen exposure and eating an anti inflammatory diet are vital. After menopause fibroids usually shrink due to decreased oestrogen levels.
Its worthwhile remembering that this is a natural process not a disease!
Peri-menopause is the lead up to menopause when symptoms start. This can occur anywhere from the age of 45, most commonly from 50 and can continue for a couple of years! Actual menopause is when the periods have ceased for a year.
Indicators that the process has started are that the periods are getting lighter and less frequent or unusually heavy and flooding, hot flushes, less tolerance to alcohol, sleep disruptions, moodiness, sweating, anxiety & fatigue.
Adrenal health is vital to make the process to menopause smoother. Unfortunately these days the stressful lifestyle so many women lead contributes to adrenal fatigue and a severely disruptive perimenopausal experience.
We use some fantastic herbal medicines to manage the process so it can be as smooth as possible. We also check to ensure there are plenty of phytoestrogens in the diet. Often we will test adrenal and nervous system health to determine the degree of stress in the system and what to do about it.
