Heal from the inside out!
If you suffer from PCOS then every medical and wellness advocate will tell you, that food should be your medicine.
If you have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) you can fight the condition by incorporating the following five elements into your daily routine.
- Eat a nutritious, anti-inflammatory diet – one that is high in fibre and low in simple carbohydrates and sugars. In fact, carbohydrates should be limited to complex carbohydrates that are low on the glycaemic index.
- Establish and maintain a workout routine that engages your body without pushing the limits of physical fitness too far – strenuous exercise can add stress that will keep you in hormone imbalance. Exercise should be a daily activity but should never be something that causes injury.
- Incorporate targeted nutritional supplements into a healthy diet. Vitamins, minerals, and botanicals that have been blended together to support specific functions and systems of your body can increase your body’s ability to fight back and regain its health.
- Seek support. The symptoms associated with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can be difficult to cope with, as well as emotionally draining. A shoulder to lean on in times of struggle can be invaluable to you.
- Get smart. Learn all you can about Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Insulin Resistance.
