PCOS: Working Towards Fertility AND a Normal Life

Having symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can make life feel anything but normal. Having no idea if or when your period is on its way, abnormal hair growth, acne, fatigue and difficulty maintaining a healthy weight can all cause extreme distress. If you do start trying to conceive, those first few months can feel like you’re chasing a moving target, and that’s assuming you’re actually ovulating (which not everyone with PCOS does). It all adds up to a decreased quality of life that many women have a hard time finding answers and solutions for. 

An Integrative Approach

At the Healing Arts Center, we frequently treat women suffering from PCOS. We believe in a team approach, with the primary member being YOU. We listen to you, we don't assume things and we don't dismiss your opinions - you know your body. PCOS isn’t just about your period or ovulating, it’s about how your whole body is functioning. Our primary focus is using natural methods towards health such as lifestyle changes, Acupuncture, nutritional supplements and herbal medicines.

Sometimes, the more stubborn conditions may require medications to help balance your thyroid and insulin or to give the ovaries an extra nudge towards ovulation. We work with your physician partners, whether they’re reproductive endocrinologists or gynecologists, to help coordinate your care. Understanding the comprehensive pictures of your care helps us modify our treatments to help increase their success, whether it’s geared towards infertility or just to have a semblance of normalcy. To find the root cause and best treatments we go over:

  Hormone Levels  Get the whole picture from thyroid to estrogen & more.
