Grab your PCOS by the balls

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS is something that most women would have heard of. Why? Because between 5-10% of us will be affected.

It’s not that it’s a bug that is affecting us, it’s actually that our body is malfunctioning and a series of reactions that are designed to keep us automatically balanced and everything running well, are NOT working.

When it comes to PCOS, its underlying cause is unregulated blood sugars. This happens by one of two ways (or a combination of both). Either we have been eating a boat load of sugar and how pancreas (the blood sugar regulating organ) gets fed up and starts to become numb to the signals to keep balancing your blood sugars, OR… We experience stress over a long period of time triggering a cascade of hormone changes resulting in high blood sugars, and how brain not thinking it’s save to fall pregnant.

Hello hairy chin, irregular cycles and cysts on the ovaries.
