PCOS vs. A Healthier You!

September 15th, 2010

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS is one of the most common problems of women in the reproductive age. According to statistics, at least 10% of women at any age experience this dilemma. This disorder involves hormonal imbalance thus creating irregularities and aberration in the menstrual cycle.

Aside from irregular menstruation, if you experience severe acne, weight gain, unwanted hair in different parts of the body and patches of dark skin especially at the back of the neck, it is likely that you have PCOS. Other symptoms include mood swings, difficulty in conceiving, and recurrent miscarriages.

Remember that PCOS does not only pertain to the loss or irregularity of women’s periods. PCOS also covers the symptoms of extremely heavy flowing periods. This is why most chubby women are having this dilemma.

If you suffer from PCOS, never fear for help is already right at your hands. Instead on relying on medications, trying to lose weight is one of the best options upon treating PCOS.

One of the best treatments to lose weight and lessen the symptoms is simply by lifestyle change. When we say lifestyle change, it means modification of your daily diet and physical activity. And this does not only limit to fat women, but to everyone who wishes to rid this disorder off of them.

Although you might be wondering what is the relationship of eating and being healthy with setting you free from PCOS. It’s simple. It is because too much insulin makes hormones go abnormal.

Let us recall our basic biology, shall we?

Foods that have sugar and starches like cakes and biscuits are rich in carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are broken down into glucose for the body to use as energy. If this energy is not consumed, it will be stocked up into the body as stored energy, also known as fat.

Glucose causes the blood sugar to rise up. If your blood sugar level rises up too much, your pancreas will produce insulin to regulate your blood sugar level. But continually having a high level of blood sugar will make your body cells less sensitive to insulin. If this will go on, it may result to another danger – Diabetes. But that’s another story.

Going back, having a high level of insulin in your bloodstream eventually makes your ovaries over-produce male hormones known as testosterones. These male hormones increase the risk of having unwanted facial hair, acne and others. They also interfere with the release of hormones from your pituitary gland which regulates the process of ovulation and female sex hormones. And thus, causes the abnormality in the menstrual cycle.

It is advised that in order to obtain a healthier body to recover from PCOS, one must have a healthier and balanced diet. Welcome PCOS diet into your life. Exercising regularly, eating small meals and snacks rather than large meals and balancing carbohydrates and protein rich foods are some techniques on this one. Avoiding sugary carbohydrates and adding more on the high-fiber carbohydrates is a great help as well.

With this, from the indifferent life, it is definitely worth it to have a lifestyle change. Not only will PCOS diet make women healthier, it will also reflect outside. It is the road to transforming into a beautiful and healthy woman every one ought to be.

A Woman’s Guide to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

September 15th, 2010

Women of any age and race, as long as they have gone through the stage of womanhood, have experienced irregularity or non-existent periods in some time of their lives. However, some are suffering from cases where they do not actually menstruate. Some may think that this is good and this is freedom from the pain, but in reality, it may lead to more serious problems. This occurrence is one of the symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS.

It is one of the most common female endocrine disorders that affect 1 out of 10 women in the reproductive age. Basically, hormonal imbalance is present, thus causing irregular periods or extremely heavy period flows. The presence of acne, unwanted hair growth, weight gain and patches of dark skin at the back your neck and other areas are just some of the symptoms that you may have PCOS.

Let us review the menstrual cycle and get a deeper understanding on how Polycystic Ovary Syndrome occurs.
.
The average menstrual cycle occurs every lunar cycle or 28 days. But most women experience their menstrual cycles at the range of 22 to 32 days, depending on their condition, moods, diets and other factors that affect this.

During menstrual cycle, hormonal levels change according to the phase and induce menstruation and ovulation. The purpose of this is to prepare the body for pregnancy.

The menstrual cycle can be divided into two major parts: the follicular phase and the luteal phase. The menstrual cycle begins when the brain transmits Lutenizing Hormones (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormones (FSH) to the ovaries. A lot of LH tells the ovaries that it is time to ovulate and release an egg. Ovulation often occurs at the 14th to 16th day of the cycle.

Once the egg is released, it travels down to the fallopian tube and makes its way to the uterus. The hormone progesterone from the ovary tells the lining of the uterus to thicken as it waits for a sperm. If the egg is not fertilized, the lining of the uterus is shed and thus menstruation begins.

While with PCOS menstrual cycle, the LH levels are already high. Since the LH levels are already high, there will be no more LH surge and no ovulation will occur. Thus, the period will be irregular.

Women who have PCOS menstrual cycles experience irregular periods is because their ovaries do not receive the right hormonal signals from your pituitary gland. Without those signals, these women will not have the ability to ovulate and thus have irregular periods or none at all.

Those who have been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS should never feel depressed and anxious. You are not alone. In fact, discovering this disorder at this stage is a blessing for it did not take a while to get worse. Remember to keep in touch with a health care provider or a gynecologist for you to get diagnosed. Professional help is better than relying on whatnots and hearsays.

PCOS Herbal Remedies and Natural Treatments

September 15th, 2010

To help different side effect of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or simply (PCOS), there is a number of prescription medications that are given to the sufferers. More medications that are usually being used are still being studied continuously. However, more and more sufferers of PCOS often consider PCOS herbal remedies. This is may be because they have been advocates of natural treatments and they are always open to alternative medicine, but for some, it is due to their impression that traditional prescription drugs just do not seem to have the solution that they are looking for.

The truth of the matter is that, there is no cure for PCOS up to this date. However, there are a number of great methods in order to treat and manage its side effects. This article presents a list of the most typical symptoms of PCOS, as well some PCOS herbal remedies that could help in alleviating it.

CAUTION: It is always important to consult your doctor first before taking in any herbal product or supplement. If you are currently on prescription medications such as birth control pills, or any other fertility drugs or if you have a pre-exciting condition, do not take any of these herbal supplements without having talked to the doctor first.

Problems on Imbalanced Hormone Levels

•    Dandelion root – is considered to be one of the best herbal liver tonics as it aids in cleansing the liver and eliminates the accumulation of toxins. Majority of menstrual issues and infertility problems are made worse due to the proliferation of excess hormones that tend to “back up” in the liver. This herb keeps the liver working properly and in turn, aids in getting rid your body from all the excess crud that it does not need.
•    Vites or Chasteberry – this is one of the most popular PCOS herbal remedies that have been utilized for thousand of years in curing hormonal imbalances in females. It also aids in the stabilization and stimulation of the pituitary gland’s functions which manages the release of the luteinizing hormone.
•    Milk Thistle – is an essential herb for the liver and an equally important herb for the treatment of PCOS. It aids the liver cells from any impairment, and encourages the healing of the impaired cells. This herb enhances the general function of the liver.

Problems on Hirsutism or male pattern hair growth characterized by the excess body and/or facial hair and elevated testosterone levels:

Majority of women suffering from PCOS most of the time have high levels of testosterone which is converted into DHT. DHT is the substances responsible in stimulating the process of male pattern hair growth and male pattern hair loss. Lessening the levels of DHT in the body can help lower the excess facial and/or body hair as well as hair thinning, oil/acne skin that females suffering from PCOS may be experiencing.

•    White Peony tea – an herb which has exhibited positive influence on low progesterone as well as lessened raised androgen levels and plays and important role in regulation of estrogen and prolactin levels.
