Surprisingly PCOS is a common disorder...
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine system disorder, affecting between 5% and 10% of women in their reproductive age. Coupled with a vast array of symptoms, PCOS can also cause further risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol.
While there is no cure for PCOS, there is still hope! The symptoms can be alleviated and managed through a change in lifestyle, which includes diet and exercise. A lifestyle change is the recommended approach for women suffering from PCOS. When it comes to our health we need to be sure we are making the right choices to ensure we are taking care of our body. We need to be aware and have an understanding about the foods we are eating but we also need to take care of our mental health as well. PCOS not only affects our physical health but also our mental health. Our mental state is as important in managing PCOS and it's symptoms.
There is no set or standardized approach to managing your PCOS and healing your body, this can only be done through adopting a holistic approach.
What can I do?
Do not give up, managing your PCOS is in your hands. You have the strength to overcome your PCOS. PCOS and it's many symptoms do not define you.
- Firstly, become educated about PCOS. You must first have an understanding of the possible causes, symptoms, risk factors and treatment to fully be able to heal your body and mind. Start by downloading PCOS and Nutrition's free eBook. It will help you in understanding what PCOS is, the causes, treatment and nutrition 101. Through understanding this information you have grasped the knowledge that will bring you a step closer to managing your PCOS.
- There is not one type of PCOS and not all women are the same, therefore following the same dietary protocol is pointless, what works for one person may not work for you. All our bodies are different, it is important to find out what works for you. There are women with PCOS who have specific dietary needs. As a result, changing the foods you eat can lead to improvements in both your symptoms and your overall health. PCOS and Nutrition has an array of free recipes to satisfy any dietary requirement, as well as recipes to help you live a healthy yet balanced lifestyle.
- Nutrition is an important part of managing your PCOS, however, it is only one element to living a healthy lifestyle and healing our body. Exercise coupled with reducing stress and the many endocrine disruptors found in our environment is what will provide you with the greatest benefits.
- Lastly, while many people are skeptical about supplements, research has shown supplements do offer benefits. Consider introducing supplements into your diet to help manage your PCOS symptoms. Check out PCOS and Nutrition's recommendations in the diet section of pcosandnutrition.com.
