Hello! I am so excited about this information that I wanted to share this with you.
My daughter who is 18 years old has PCOS along with hypothyroidism and Down's syndrome. Stephanie is a very happy child and has a really great self-image. I always tell her, "You are so healthy and that's why you are so beautiful!" With a big smile on her face she always says "Thank You!"
When she was first diagnosed with PCOS about 4 years ago she was put on birth control pills. I was told from several doctors that PCOS could only be treated with medication. I started doing some research and decided that I needed to try an alternative approach to treating my daughter.
I just couldn't see her taking the birth control pill for the rest of her life. So after meeting with Stephie's endocrinologist for one of her regular visit, I told him that I wanted to take her off the pill and try to treat her through nutrition. He said he didn't believe in herbs or any other alternative approach, but I had to follow my gut instinct and try.
So here we are a year later and her endocronologist says that she is doing great and she doesn't have to go back on the pill. Her blood results have dramatically improved since her last visit when she was on the birth control pill.
Stephie gets her period every month, her acne has disappeared, her facial hair is disappearing, her energy level has increased, dark circle around her neck is gone, her cholesterol levels are great and everything else is in range.
At home we only buy organic foods including meats. We've cut down on meat consumption and are now eating only chicken and seafood along with fruits, vegetables and nuts. I've omitted certain foods like soy, peanut butter, among other things because of her hypothyroid. She's exercising 1/2 hour a day five times a week.
And we've implemented vitamins such as complex C, B-complex, E with selenium along with a woman's daily vitamin.
We try to avoid foods with high glycemic index and drink lots of filtered water. We also love our green teas with lemon (no sugar).
Stephanie is now eating more and is slowly losing weight, inches and has more energy. She is getting healthier and healthier.
I have searched and searched and attained information from different sources and I wanted to thank you for all the information you have provided me with.
It's been a long and slow process. I've implemented things as I find more and more information. I'm still not finished but my daughter is on her way to being a more beautiful young lady!
May blessings fill your days and light your path to enlightenment.
