PCOS – Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a chronic hormonal and metabolic disorder that presents a bewildering array of health problems such as infertility, overweight, hirsutism, hair loss, depression, dark skin patches and lack of energy. A serious as these symptoms are, the consequences of not dealing effectively with PCOS are even more serious, including heart disease, diabetes, reduced quality of life, and shortened life span.
Steps can be taken to treat and enhance quality of life. First and foremost is addressing dietary habits. A healthy weight loss program, if the person is overweight, is the initial action to be taken to start reversing the effects of this disorder. But this is just the start. To insure continuing good health is to shift into a new way of eating and exercising. Promoting a lifelong healthy lean-to-fat tissue ratio is the ultimate goal.
At Lotus Path Wellness Center, we will work with you to achieve that goal.
