12 Ways to Naturally Reverse PCOS
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects about one in every ten women of reproductive age. The syndrome begins when the body’s ovaries produce excess testosterone, which causes an imbalance in other hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. This change can result in weight gain or difficulty losing weight, acne and excessive hair growth on the face or chest. Women who have PCOS may also experience periods where they don’t menstruate regularly (called oligomenorrhea) or have pain during menstrual cycles (dysmenorrhea). But the good news is that there are ways to naturally reverse symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome, without the need for medication!
What is PCOS?
A study at Loma Linda University showed that women who drank more than 64 ounces per day had a 72% lower risk of developing dysmenorrhea and a 27% lower risk of having abnormally long menstrual cycles.
Tip #1: Drink plenty of water
Regular exercise reduces insulin resistance, which is often associated with weight gain in those diagnosed with PCOS. This can help you lose some weight and improve other symptoms such as acne by regulating your hormone levels as well.
Tip #2: Exercise regularly
Sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain and other symptoms such as acne, while getting the appropriate amount of rest helps regulate hormone levels that may be contributing to PCOS.
Tip #3: Get enough sleep
Eating a diet high in animal proteins is associated with lower insulin resistance rates, which means reduced risk for developing PCOS and its related symptoms.
Tip #4: Eat more protein
Some women have found success using aromatherapy to manage their menstrual cycles or reduce pain during menstruation by diffusing certain oils; this is not an effective way for everyone but worth trying if you’re interested! Studies also show that using lavender oil as an aromatherapy massage oil may greatly reduce pain and discomfort associated with menstrual cramps.
