Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Many PCOS clients through doctor's referrals have attained tremendous results and personal satisfaction.
What is PCOS ? It is a genetic hormonal disorder. PCOS symptoms occur because of the body’s inability to process insulin correctly, creating an excess of insulin and glucose in the body. This results in an imbalance with other hormones so the body produces more male hormones, preventing ovulation. The most common symptom of PCOS is excess facial and/or body hair growth.
PCOS has four main features:
skin and hair changes related to testosterone ( oily skin, acne, loss of scalp hair )
irregular periods, and sometimes, difficulty becoming pregnant
problems with weight
metabolic abnormalities, principally high insulin levels
