PCOS - something only another woman would understand
Updated: Jan 4
The reason why I dedicated my services to women is because our bodies are just so complicated especially when they go slightly out of balance.
PCOS something many women have, I was speaking to a friend who was asking me how she could manage it as she wanted to come off the pill but was too afraid to because of all the symptoms she may start to see. To keep it simple I told her that her main areas of focus need to be her insulin levels, digestion and anti inflammatory nutrition. Lets go through them one by one.
Insulin levels As you'll already be aware this area requires a focus on low GI foods such as : Sweet potato, Nuts and seeds, lentils, beans, brown rice, rye bread, berries.
Digestion This is all around ensuring you get regular bowel movement to remove toxins and excessive hormones. You can achieve this by drinking 2 or more litres of water per day, taking probiotics, a magnesium supplement and eating high fiber foods. Please note the reduction of animal protein is required.
Anti-inflammatory nutrition You want spices that reduce inflammation such as turmeric and ginger. Eating more vegetables and fresh fruit.
Fats Are key to hormone and cell production so adding nuts, avocado, flax seed, chia seeds and coconut will support with PCOS and the symptoms associated.
When you don't know, what you don't know it can seem like the impossible, but providing her with these handy tips made it simple for her to understand and make the required changes to her diet.
