How to Treat Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Monday, 20 Jun 2011 02:19 PM

Polycystic ovary syndrome manifests itself as a combination of symptoms including irregular periods, acne, hirsuitism, weight gain, and infertility.

Various herbs may be used to treat PCOS symptoms. Chaste berry (Vitex Agnus Castus), buck wheat (Fagopyrum esculatum), dong quai (Angelica sinensis), “d-Pinitol,” and saw palmetto can help to balance sex hormones and correct menstrual irregularities.

A healthy lifestyle and diet is also crucial to proper polycystic ovary treatment.

Women with PCOS should regulate their blood sugar and cholesterol levels by reducing intake of refined sugars, alcohol, saturated fats, and additives.

Alfalfa, lentils, chickpeas, and linseeds are healthy diet replacements to support the treatment for PCOS.

Regular exercise like yoga, swimming, and walking is vital to prevent serious weight gain. Biotin, common in vegetables and peanuts, can also help to reduce the insulin resistance that often causes weight problems.

In the most extreme cases of PCOS, laparoscopic ovarian drilling may be recommended.
