We can't emphasize enough how important it is for each woman to understand what causes polycystic ovary syndrome. If you understand the CAUSES, you can remove them. If you take a more simplistic, short sighted approach of taking pills such as birth control pills or metformin, you may end up being disappointed.
Because pharmaceuticals only "manage" your symptoms. They do not remove the root causes of the disorder.
The five "pillars" of comprehensive, effective long-term management of PCOS are:
1) Healthy, balanced diet. 2) Regular exercise. 3) Stress reduction. 4) Selected nutritional supplements. 5) Health care professionals who understand PCOS and will take the time to develop a personalized treatment plan.
These topics are discussed in the book.
This web page list a number of nutritional supplements that have been shown to be helpful for reducing symptoms related to polycystic ovary syndrome.
