There is so much talk about PCOS these days. Why? because it is the most common endocrine/hormonal disorder that affects women’s fertility. It is caused by the sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone being out of balance, which then leads to the growth of too many underdeveloped follicles bulking up the ovaries. The ovaries are then unable to function effectively and often cycles are irregular or no ovulation is able to occur.
There is quite a lot of talk about how to improve this condition and the most common being through diet and lifestyle. That is obviously what we recommend too however, we also have the advantage of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture which has been proven to aid in the improvement of PCOS. Even scientists agree that acupuncture has a positive effect on the symptoms of PCOS and is able to help balance the sex hormones. Chinese Medicine is one of the few proven treatments that actually works to treat this condition.
