Natural Support for PCOS in Toronto:
Perhaps you have been struggling to get pregnant, are dealing with heavy, painful or irregular periods, and/or struggling with your relationship with your body or sexuality. You wish to find hormonal balance. You may have tried birth control or other medication but found it didn’t help or created unwanted side effects. Like many womb health issues, PCOS benefits from experimenting a little bit and targeting the issue from all angles. (Physical, mental, emotional & spiritual). PCOS is one of those issues that often responds well to natural treatment approaches.
What is PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is when the body produces excess androgens which can impede ovulation, and create insulin resistance. It is often a cause of infertility. It has been known since at least the 1700s and yet the exact cause is not known.
- Irregular or absent periods
- Heavy periods
- Excessive hair growth (face, chest, back or buttocks)
- Weight gain
- Thinning hair on the head
- Ovarian cysts
Not everyone will experience all of these symptoms. Some may experience other symptoms as well.
