Natural Remedies for PCOS

What natural remedies can you use to improve Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?

After a number of pathology tests and maybe an ultrasound your medical practitioner has given you a diagnosis of PCOS.  Given it is a syndrome and has a large number of potential underlying causes what are some practical things you do right now to help bring your body back to balance?  Exercise, certain foods and herbs can all make a big difference.

Exercise is proved to be the best therapeutic management of high insulin, imbalance in hormones, menstrual irregularity and infertility.  30 minutes of exercise daily is required regardless if you are under, normal or overweight.  A combination of aerobic exercise (walking, bike riding, running, swimming) and resistance training (weights) gives the best results. 

Set your body up for a great balanced day by eating breakfast everyday.  Ideally please include protein such as nuts, eggs, meat or legumes.  As you venture out into the world for the day it is really important for your hormonal balance to eat every 3 hours.  Avoid big sugar drops that play havoc with your insulin balance.  

Foods you can introduce to help manage PCOS include:-

  • Dried cinnamon powder improves insulin resistance at 1.5 grams per day and improves menstrual regularity.  Sprinkle some over your breakfast granola, brown rice porridges or add it to your morning smoothie.
  • Legumes such as chickpeas, red kidney beans and non GMO soy are rich in inositol and are fabulous at balancing hormonal levels.  Create your own home made baked beans or vegetable and bean curries.  Your body will love you for it.
  • Drive down inflammatory PCOS by including an abundance of turmeric in your diet.
