From A Life of Acceptance To a Life of Possibilities...

by Sam
(Canada)

I have just finished reading your book and I am floored!

I was diagnosed with PCOS at puberty and am now 29. I lost about 60 pounds when I was 16 (unrelated to PCOS - I didn't even know weight could affect it until a little while back) and have stabilised at about 150 lbs for the past 8 years.

This has always confused me a little because I have played sports and worked in labour-intensive industries my whole life (farming, landscaping - which is my current trade) and eaten a healthy diet -- or so I thought!
I suffer from every one of the symptoms but being on Diane since I was 14 has helped though I now understand it is merely a damper.

I was told I could NEVER have children... so I have lived my life with acceptance and put the idea out of my mind so many years ago.

It was very difficult but I dealt with it, drew a line under it and moved on.

Once I had 'dealt' with it, I saw a million reasons why it was better to not have kids. I have lived for 16 years KNOWING I would never be a mother and 'not caring'... now I feel I could one day have control over this condition and could even consider having a family.

Having hope that my PCOS could improve through diet is like learning the world is flat... I have had PCOS for as long as I can remember so I have done very little research, funnily enough, I am quite new to all of this - 16 years was a long time ago and I was very young.

I have believed for more than half my life that this is my life and it is something to cope with.

The last few days have been so emotional, I am struggling as I type to keep things under control... I now see that I would do anything to be rid of it - the small leap from acceptance to seeing light is enormous, immeasurable.

My poor boyfriend thinks I've lost it!

A weight has been lifted, though I may choose to not have children, I believe I have been given the gift of choice.

Thank-you, from the bottom of my heart.

Editor's comments: Hi, Sam! We're excited for you!

PCOS is not something that any woman has to passively accept. Polycystic ovary syndrome is a situation that can be effectively improved with natural methods combined with selected pharmaceuticals if absolutely necessary. And…dare I say it?...I believe that PCOS can be DEFEATED --- and brought completely under control. That's my belief, based on years of medical research.

The e-book you purchased is a great place to start. Since it was published, I have compiled more than 120 specific things anyone can do to gain the upper hand over PCOS. We have plans to bring some of this information to you so that much of the unnecessary suffering can be stopped. Make sure you're subscribed to our newsletter so you'll know when the new information will be available.
