PCOS Optimising Your Health
“I’m offering you evidence-based acupuncture treatment and which also takes a deep dive into your diet and lifestyle.”
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine metabolic disorder, which results in out of control blood sugar levels, fertility issues and sensitivity to stress leading to heightened anxiety and depression. I can offer you a safe, natural and effective way to manage these and many other symptoms. In a nutshell, you’ll feel a whole lot better and get your life back on track. My practices are in East Dulwich and Crystal Palace.
Acupuncture helps to rebalance your hormone levels. Research has shown it increases blood flow to the ovaries, reduces the number of ovarian cysts, controls hyperglycaemia through increasing insulin sensitivity and decreasing blood glucose and insulin levels, reducing cortisol and assisting in weight loss. We will follow an adapted protocol developed by research which is customised for your constitution according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
How it Works
Acupuncture should ideally be taken over three to four months, together with other lifestyle changes tailored to your needs. You will be guided and supported on this journey. Your progress can be monitored through your signs and symptoms and sometimes with medical testing. Usually you will notice changes throughout your time in treatment.
The research shows that for hormone levels to change three to six months is required and indeed this amount of time is sometimes required for diet and supplements to take effect (if these are recommended). If you are trying to get pregnant, you should ideally wait three months before trying to conceive and for your signs and symptoms to change. I may need to refer you to a nutritionist and/or fitness coach to ensure your lifestyle changes are sustainable and for the longterm.
