Understanding PCOS

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Characterized by hormonal imbalances that can lead to irregular menstrual cycles, ovarian cysts, weight gain, and other symptoms, PCOS is one of the most common causes of infertility. Yet despite its prevalence and impact, conventional treatment options often focus solely on managing symptoms and fail to address the underlying causes of disorder. In fact, most of these treatments rely on birth control pills to artificially regulate menstrual cycles, which not only perpetuates imbalance, but in some cases can worsen or even accelerate PCOS, masking or intensifying symptoms.

Functional medicine is a holistic treatment philosophy that considers the medical, physical, neurological, and psychological aspects of an individual’s health, functional medicine focuses on treating the whole person rather than isolated diseases. After identifying the root cause of disease, a thorough treatment protocol is developed to help provide relief from existing symptoms without causing additional damage or side effects. By utilizing a combination of therapies and approaching healing from every possible avenue, functional medicine offers more tools to patients with PCOS and maximizes healing odds.

Common knowledge tells us to approach even minor health complications, like colds and flus, on multiple fronts: get lots of rest (support your immune system), drink lots of fluids (detox), eat some soup and take some vitamin C (ensure proper nutrition).

In these cases, it’s second nature for us to do everything in our power to restore health — so why should we settle for pigeon-holed treatment when health complications are even more serious? You deserve comprehensive, sustainable healing. Our functional medicine approach has helped countless patients from all walks of life find just that.

Functional medicine offers a personalized approach to PCOS treatment that includes optimizing the gut microbiome, addressing lifestyle factors like nutrition and sleep cycles, targeted supplements to support ovarian function, and even stress management techniques, as chronic stress can exacerbate PCOS symptoms.
