Thanks for your PCOS website!

by LA

Hello - I am 36 years old and have had PCOS since I was 14.

I had enough wondering why there were no developments in this area. I wanted to come off the pill and I started to do a lot of research.

Thanks to your site and some others I came across Inositol.

Before I started I did a full blood and ultrasound of my ovaries - PCOS (of course). 3 months off the pill on d-chiro Inositol, myo-Inositol, Folinic acid, selenium and an adrenal chinese herbal treatment, I don't have the syndrome any more.

I have lost weight, have now had 2 periods, one regular cycle (32 days), ovulated beautifully.

My cysts have halved in number and gone down in size on my ovaries.

All my hormones, cortisol, adrenal and thyroid levels are completely normal and my liver function has improved.

I am thrilled.

I didn't see results for the first 8 only using Myo-Inositol, once I did the 2 together I started to see instant results. Thanks for the help!!!

Hi Lee-Anne,

Wow, that's wonderful news!

It's interesting how different methods help different PCOSers to overcome their symptoms. There are a lot of variations in this disorder, so what works for one person really well doesn't necessarily work as well for the next person.

So, whatever you're doing, keep doing it so long as it works for you.

Others may need to look at additional possibilities such as berberine extract, vitamin D, omega-3 fish oil concentrate, NAC, metformin, or support for the thyroid gland.

Still others may be affected by stress or poor sleep, which results in cortisol and melatonin imbalances, both of which impact polycystic ovary syndrome.

Of course, a modified diet is a cornerstone of any health rebuilding program. An example is the avoidance of gluten grains, which are implicated in GI dysfunction and autoimmune diseases, such as autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto's disease).

And let's not forget all of the chemical hormone disrupters in our environment. I can assure you that this is a very serious long-term problem for women who have PCOS. For example, BPA
has been implicated as a cause of hormone imbalances in polycystic ovary syndrome. It's super important that everyone minimize exposure to environmental chemicals.

Keep up the good work!
