PCOS Optimising Your Health Programme
“I’m offering you a programme with evidence-based acupuncture treatment and which also takes a deep dive into your diet using Nutritional Therapy. If you are unsure whether you want to see a nutritionist we can discuss this at your initial consultation”
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. We 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.
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.
Nutritional Therapy will identify potential hormonal imbalances, nutrient requirements or lifestyle factors that may be contributing to PCOS. By bringing hormones back into balance, we should reduce unwanted symptoms of PCOS and improve outcomes for fertility and pregnancy.
How it Works
We offer a programme of Acupuncture and Nutritional Therapy taken over three to four months, together with other lifestyle advice tailored to your needs. You will be guided and supported by two experienced practitioners. We liaise with each other every step of the way, so we can adjust and adapt your Programme to meet your unique requirements where necessary. We validate your Programme by medical testing, outcome measures or through signs and symptoms. We anticipate you noticing changes throughout your time with us.
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 supplements to take effect. If you are trying to get pregnant, we advise waiting three months before trying to conceive and ideally waiting for the results of your tests, where these have been done. By combining acupuncture with nutrition and other lifestyle changes, we expect you to respond quicker than six months, so our programme reflects this enhanced progress.
