If you are struggling with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), changes to your diet can help you have a regular menstrual cycle, and can help you get pregnant. The infertility that is associated with PCOS is caused by hormonal imbalances that are intricately linked to what you eat. There is good evidence that shows that women with PCOS can improve their fertility with changes to their diet.
Women with PCOS are also at a greater risk for developing metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and Type 2 Diabetes. Changes that you make to your diet now, will help you stay healthy for a lifetime.
The changes in your diet can:
- Restore ovulation
- Reduce symptoms like excess hair growth on the face and arms, thinning hair on the head, and acne
- Help you lose weight if you are overweight
- Provide the amino acids and fatty acids you need to optimize hormonal health
- Maximize your intake of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for optimal reproductive health
We’ll also explore what type of supplement program is right for you.
Does this seem daunting to you? Don’t worry. It won’t be. We work together to tweak your diet to increase your fertility, and we talk about real food….like vegetables, fruit, rice, granola bars!….not science.
Each week we review your personalized plan, and make changes to it based on what works best for you. Each week you learn more about how PCOS and nutrition are linked, and each week we practice the changes from the weeks before, and take on a few new changes.
Whether you opt for individual counselling, or a group class, at the end of our time together, you will have changed the way you eat, and you will have all of the tools you need to eat an optimal diet that will balance your hormones, and support a healthy pregnancy.
Life gets hectic. If at any time you want to discontinue working with us, we will provide a full refund for the sessions you haven’t used.
