Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Nurture your ovaries

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common health problem that affects up to 1 in 4 women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS have metabolism problems that may affect their overall health and appearance due to imbalance in their hormones. Anovulation (not releasing an egg) in PCOS can lead to impaired fertility. Diagnosis can be challenging as the manifestation of this condition is very variable and will depend on an advanced Ultrasound Scan as well as special blood tests.

Research into the nutritional approach to PCOS, weight loss, exercise and specific supplements has revolutionized the treatment of amenorrhea and anovulation related to this condition. Will guide you towards the modern approach of balancing your hormones and achieving regular menstrual cycles decreasing the necessity of medications and raise your odds of achieving a natural conception.

PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome)

“How is your mood today?”

PMS is the medical term used to describe the collection of different mental and physical problems that may occur during the second half of the menstrual cycle (after ovulation). Changes in oestrogen and progesterone levels during this period can trigger symptoms such as bloating, mood swings, anxiety, irritability, insomnia and depression, significantly disrupting woman’s routine till the onset of menstruation when abruptly they disappear.

Natural Progesterone in combination with lifestyle changes often produces profound improvements in PMS symptoms. Oestrogen, if unopposed by Progesterone, tends to irritate the nervous system and given our Oestrogen dominant environment PMS is increasing in frequency. Progesterone dominance to Oestrogen on the other hand, is associated with tranquillity. Over time the untreated PMS can become worse and eventually women may have only two to three symptom free days in a month.

Women with PMS tend to have lower Progesterone than normal at that time of their cycle when Progesterone is supposed to be dominant, so that Oestrogen are dominant instead. Using natural progesterone in the right time of the cycle and having a professional guiding you through lifestyle changes and tailored supplements schemes can improve your functionality and daily life.
