Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a syndrome due to a hormonal imbalance that hinders the release and full development of eggs by the ovaries, which take on the appearance of a “pearl necklace”. It is accompanied by amenorrhea (absence of the menstrual cycle), irregular menstrual periods, acne, and hirsutism. Dark marks often appear on the skin, around the armpits, groin, and knuckles of the fingers.

MAIN CAUSES

  • Androgen excess
  • Insulin resistance

TREATMENT

  • Healthy diet that protects the liver (including some medicinal plants such as milk thistle and boldo), an organ related to the elimination of hormones
  • Prebiotics and probiotics that improve the functionality of the intestine and improve our defenses
  • Diet rich in fruits and vegetables, legumes, and nuts
  • Flax oil, rich in omegas 3 and 6, regulates hormonal levels and promotes ovulation cycles
