Doing it the Natural Way

by Beverly
(Chicago, IL)

I was hopeless for a long time.

I had my first period when I was 11. After that, it became a long string of irregular periods.

I married in 2010, and it's taken me six years but I've done it. I am 33 weeks pregnant with my little guy. And I did it the Natural way.

You see, before committing to medicine, I needed to take a moment to love myself and offer myself the best possible chance to become pregnant on my own.

I went on a one year cleanse. I stuck to a diabetic diet, cut out sugar entirely, limit red meat, and ate clean---very clean.

I did two things that I believe made the most impact:
1) I began juicing vegetables and fruits religiously, and
2) I exercised every single night for 30 minutes, primarily running.

I lost nearly 30 pounds and I was in the best shape of my life. People didn't recognize me anymore, and those who did said that there is a healthy glow about me.

I really took a year (very serious half year) to cleanse all the waste out of my body. That's how long it took to 'renew' my body. I felt great, I looked great. I was very happy. My periods began to become regular, and I began to ovulate each month. I found out I was pregnant 1/1/2016. I cried.

So my advice is, try to do it the Natural way first. Allow your body to renew and heal from the contamination it's been harboring all these years. Be in the best shape of your life, and give yourself a 'fighting chance'. Medicine is a good thing but should always be the last resort.

Don't allow yourself to make any more excuses about living a healthier lifestyle. At the end of the day, it's a choice and an even stronger committed execution. The one question that should compel and help you remain dedicated to your decision is: how bad do you want it?

Well done!
by: PCOS Editor

Hi Beverly,

Congrats on your pregnancy and thanks for your remarkable story! I hope that many will read your story and understand that hopelessness is not something anyone has to live with. We all have much more control over our destinies that we realize. You're a perfect example of this.

We also recommend juicing
as a complement to a healthy diet, which includes eating lots of healthy vegetables.

Not only does a healthier diet and increased exercise increase the odds of a normal cycle and pregnancy, it also greatly reduces future chronic diseases associated with PCOS, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and possibly dementia or Alzheimer's.

Keep up the good work!!
