Yes, there are many natural, individualized treatments that can help you begin to have regular periods. We assess each woman for her individual history and then provide a comprehensive treatment plan including dietary, lifestyle, herbal or vitamin treatments after assessing labs to understand the underlying causes.
Yes! There are many natural options to choose from. I have several PCOS patients who are either cycling monthly or on a more regular basis. Diet, herbs and supplements are just some of the natural options.
With proper identification of the underlying cause and then continued treatment we can help regulate your cycles better. However, there is usually not a simple, 1 supplement type of answer. Please call the office to schedule a consult where we can discuss the possible causes and treatments. Dr Anderson
Yes, first I draw labs the week before menses or anytime after ovulation. Those labs show me what you need to get your cycles back. I treat many PCOS women with great success. I often use progesterone (cyclically), Metformin and possibly spironolactone. Not all women are the same.
First, you need to check all your hormones for deficiencies and toxicities with lab studies for: FSH, LH, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA. Then make corrections with supplementations.

Yes, you can try Lobelia and magnesium.

There are definitely ways to help address your condition with natural therapies. It will involve a holistic approach addressing lifestyle, sleep, nutrition, exercise, and stress. On top of that, your protocol will include supplements. When you find a naturopathic doctor to work with, he or she will most likely ask for your lab results or will order you some labs. This will further assist in directing your treatment protocol to the areas of your body that needs extra help.
I hope this helps you.
Please consult with a naturopathic doctor who specializes in woman's health.
This is my favorite question! This is my absolute favorite thing to treat. I use a combination of herbs and bio-identical hormones to regulate your body and get things back on track. If there is a history of a hormonal birth control (pill or IUD) we have some adjusting to do so we can remind your body what normal is. It's hard to get more specific without knowing
personal history, but this is completely treatable with lifestyle and diet changes along with naturopathic tools.
This is an all too common problem for young women. There are natural options. I suggest you find a licensed (check your States laws) Naturopathic Physician or other licensed physician who have experience working with PCOS. There are effective ways of using bio-identical hormones to help women such as you with this problem. Check medical resources in your area that use such hormones and natural support therapies.

Most common therapies used are nutrition, herbals and acupuncture to balance hormones. I recommend finding a Naturopathic practitioner near you to discuss and individualized plan for you.
Yes, there are natural hormone therapies that help regulate the growth of cysts in the ovaries. Most likely the cause is due to toxicity...usually metal. This type of true cellar healing may take up to 6 months to a year.

PCOD is commonly a problem of excess estrogen and androgens. There are many natural solutions, primarily with diet. Start with some ground flax seeds and a good consultation with a doc to help you specifically.
