PCOS treatment often involves the use of birth control pills in conventional medicine, however we believe in getting to the root of the problem rather than treating symptoms. Empowering your health through diet, stress reduction, herbal medicine and lifestyle changes can be tremendously helpful even when combined with conventional medicine, what we call an integrative approach. Disease or illness in the body affects the various systems and organs; your reproductive system does not function independently from the rest of your body, so overall wellness is vital to fertility.
Some of the symptoms that may indicate polycystic ovarian syndrome include:
- Hair loss on the head (male pattern baldness)
- Irregular menstrual cycle or absent periods
- Excess growth of hair on the face
- Weight gain

A natural approach involves exploring your history including factors such as physical and emotional health, lifestyle, genetics, diet, environmental factors and more in order to determine what may have led to the development of polycystic ovarian syndrome. Depending on your unique circumstances, treatment or therapy may include herbs, supplements, nutritional changes, acupuncture, stress reduction techniques and more to help regulate hormones, reduce stress, and improve mood.
