Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects 1 in 10 individuals with ovaries who are of reproductive age. When you have PCOS, three main hormonal systems are off kilter: you have excess androgens (hormones like testosterone and androstenedione), not enough progesterone, and an abnormal response to insulin (so blood sugar is higher and insulin production gets cranked up, contributing to even higher androgens). Among the many frustrating features of PCOS, which can also cause ovarian cysts and other issues, is that we may never have a definitive answer for what causes it. (If you had a dollar for every time you heard that, right?) What we do know is that PCOS causes infrequent or irregular periods (due to the lack of progesterone) and is a leading cause of infertility when it’s not diagnosed and managed. Not everyone with PCOS develops cysts, despite the disorder’s name. In general, symptoms include weight gain, fatigue, acne, mood changes, headaches, pelvic pain, and more. All those extra androgens can cause unwanted hair growth on the face, arms, and other areas of the body (a condition known as hirsutism), which is also a distressing symptom for some people. It can cause those with PCOS to deal with a lot of embarrassment, especially if they are in their young adult or adult years. At the same time, not everyone is bothered by body hair—some people don’t mind it, and others embrace it. Everyone is different! Unfortunately, there is no single test for PCOS, so if you are having symptoms, your practitioner will likely do a careful history, lab work, and perhaps an ultrasound to look for ovarian cysts. There's no known cure for PCOS, and treatment mainly focuses on your individual concerns, such as infertility, hirsutism, or weight gain. If you are not trying to get pregnant, practitioners will often recommend hormonal birth control as a standard treatment. Studies suggest certain herbal remedies, such as chasteberry, black cohosh, and Chinese cinnamon, can relieve some of the symptoms. Myo-inositol, vitamins D and B-complex, and acupuncture are other popular treatments. If you have PCOS, remember that you’re not alone. Whatever your symptoms, there’s someone out there—and probably right here on Wana—who gets what you’re going through.

Historically, food hasn't been a source of stress for me as I tend to eat intuitively and focus on ingredient quality instead of scouring the nutrition label.

Can you heal your body of PCOS by changing your diet? Yes, you can! Ximena de la Serna will talk about how you can be PCOS-free forever through a low carb high-fat diet and by making the necessary changes in your lifestyle. In this episode you will learn: How Ximena suffered from PCOS for 20 years What is PCOS and what are its symptoms What high levels of insulin do to your body What happens when you don’t ovulate How to address PCOS and have it go into remission How fast you can recover from PCOS through keto What is the most important function of food What other things besides food that you need to consider when you have PCOS Key Takeaways: Having PCOS doesn’t mean that you have cysts in your ovaries. It cannot be diagnosed by ultrasound only. Insulin resistance is not a symptom of PCOS, it’s the trigger of PCOS. It doesn’t matter that you have the PCOS gene in your DNA. It doesn’t mean that you’re going to develop it. But if you give it what it needs to be activated, it will develop. Just because you have your period, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ovulating. Once you remove the disruptor from your body, then you can ovulate again. And once you start ovulating, then the free testosterone in your body starts to lower. Testosterone is not bad. As women, we need it. But we don’t want too much free testosterone that creates all of these problems. Food is a genetic messenger. You don’t need supplements for PCOS but they can be the cherry on top that will help you improve and become insulin-sensitive. Action Steps: Control your food by eating healthy and eating enough. Detoxify. Learn about your cycle and optimizing your cycle. Manage stress.

Learn True Health: ASHLEY JAMES TELLS HER STORY OF HEALING, Part 1, Diabetes, Chronic Adrenal Fatigue, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Infertility, High Blood Pressure, Heart Burn, Jen Saltzman
Many of my listeners have been curious about my story of finding the cure for my various health conditions. Over the years, I have dealt with so much! So this time around, the tables have turned. I have onboard Jennifer Saltzman, a friend and Pilates instructor who I decided to give the honor of putting me on the hot seat for this podcast episode. My Backstory Jennifer Saltzman thought it was best that I start off this episode with my backstory. Well, ever since I could remember, I have always been a sickly child. I remember being a six-year-old first grader who constantly had a sore throat and clogged sinuses among others. It was indeed frustrating finding a cure for my health disorders. During that same time in the early 80s, my mother developed Candida. And because she was a workaholic, she tried finding a cure by taking medication to keep working. However, it seemed finding a cure was useless. She still suffered from fatigue, muscle weakness, and brain fog. In what seemed like a desperate attempt then to finding a cure, my mom eventually found a Naturopath. That doctor told us that my mother and I both had blood type O. No big deal, right? Wrong. That same doctor dropped the bomb by announcing that apparently, I was allergic to milk, yeast, wheat, and sugar! My Parents My mother was my best friend. She read all these articles on antioxidants. On our quest to finding a cure for our health conditions, we went to acupuncturists together. We even enjoyed the services of a massage therapist who would come to our house once a week. My dad, on the other hand, had his health challenges. Because he primarily had weight issues, I did a bunch of diets with him, too. And oh, how he loved eating out! However, even if he loved eating meat, his meals were always dairy-free, grain-free and gluten-free. My parents were both A-types. They were both headstrong. My mother, in particular, had an air of elegant grace. She turned heads and held her ground with such authority. Furthermore, she was excellent in integrating self-care into her life. Shifting To A Whole Foods Diet When the Naturopathic doctor first declared that I was allergic to so many things, it didn't quite sink in the first time. At six years old, I had no idea that the revelation would change my life. All I cared about was whether I could still eat my favorite Coffee Crisp chocolate bars. I told Jennifer Saltzman that I remember going home that day with my mom carrying a bunch of powder supplements from that doctor. It was also the same day that my mom got rid of all the "bad foods" and switched to a whole foods diet. Yes, it was drastic but looking back, it was incredible how my health changed so much in just a span of a few days. We even switched to soy milk during those times when it was still GMO-free. "I was symptom-free. It was like heaven! All we had to do was eat a whole foods diet, void of processed foods and take supplements." Right from the time my mother put me on a whole foods diet, I was hardly sick from six years old until I became a teenager. However, when I turned 13, I decided to rebel by eating candy and cafeteria food. As expected, I lost my health and spent the next few years finding a cure to get my health back. Then when I was 19 years old, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome. Early on, the doctors told me I would never have kids. Spending most of my adult life without a feminine cycle, I gradually developed other diseases along the way. Getting Married I'm now 37 years old and have been married for nine years. My husband knew that I couldn't have kids, but that didn't stop us from trying. Then the unexpected happened. "We went through the first six years without medical intervention. However, when we discovered supplements and a healthy way of eating, we got pregnant on our first attempt!" We're now parents of a very healthy baby boy, and we couldn't be any happier. Not only did we prove doctors wrong, but eating right really does make a significant difference. "Taking more digestive enzymes made my pregnancy so much easier. Naturopathic medicine or Homeopathic medicine is so powerful. It does work." Coping With Diseases Looking back, I had a roller coaster of diseases I battled with over the years. I also kept gaining weight year after year. It baffled me because I was athletic when I was growing up. However, I think all that started to change when my mom passed away of liver cancer when I was 22 years old. It was a dark time in my life, and I was depressed for a few years. It was so bad that shortly after my mom's death, I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia and type 2 diabetes. "Depression doesn't want to make you take care of yourself. I ended up making a lot of bad choices and developed chronic adrenal fatigue. I drank a lot of coffee, and I also developed chronic infections." Moving To The United States When I first moved to the United States years ago, things didn't get any better. My health deteriorated even faster because I was also juggling many responsibilities with my job as a manager. When I eventually met my husband, Duffy, I found it funny that he and I are allergic to almost the same foods. And would you believe, I'm allergic to bananas? Surprising but true! My husband had arthritis, high blood pressure, and blood sugar issues. I, on the other hand, was primarily struggling with weight issues. By that time, I had already tried over 32 diets, but none of them worked. Aha Moment My aha moment came one day when my husband and I were watching a health documentary. It was around 2008 or 2009. Anyway, that documentary had such a tremendous impact that my husband and I decided to try shifting to an organic foods diet. "Taking on the organic foods challenge for a month, I didn't get sick. I even stopped taking antibiotics. In short, I felt amazing!" The Power Of Supplements Now that my husband and I got on the right path with eating organic or whole foods, we also discovered the benefits of taking supplements. It may seem costly at first, but it pays off in the long run. "My blood sugar was so unstable that I felt like a prisoner of my own body. So I started drinking liquid minerals. My blood sugar began to balance within a few hours of taking supplements, and my energy level was high within five days." Eventually healing from diabetes and high blood pressure, I diminished the need to eat all the time. Hence, our food budget went down. Saving a monthly average of 300 dollars, my husband and I allotted that amount for our supplements. "Doctors wanted to give me more medication to manage the side effects. But I took myself off medicines. I would rather live with the original symptoms I had than living with the side effects of drugs." Learn True Health Podcast Overcoming all those diseases and healing from them inspired me to share my story with other people. And because I found ways to empower myself in being healthy, I felt the need to share my knowledge on a bigger scale. My husband knew that I loved podcasts and encouraged me to launch one. Hence, the Learn True Health podcast was born. "It's pretty life changing when your life goes from being very dysfunctional to optimized. It's such an incredible blessing." This concludes Part 1 of this two-part series. Please link to episode 180 for Part 2 where I delve into issues like healing heartburn, 12 fad foods that deteriorate health and more on how I healed from my health conditions. See you in the next episode!

Qiological Podcast: The Power of Chinese Medicine in Treating PCOS • Farrar Duro • Qi047
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a complex of metabolic and hormonal imbalances. It not only causes menstrual irregularities, but also effects fertility, secondary sex characteristics, and can be related to elevated cholesterol and blood sugar levels as a woman ages. While conventional biomedicine can control some of the symptoms of this disorder, there isn't much it offers in terms of getting to the root of the issue. Chinese medicine on the other hand offers a wealth of possibilities that can help to get to the root of the causes and fundamentally shift a woman's physiology and bring balance to the body. Our guest in this episode knows a lot about PCOS, as she suffered from this disorder and after being dismissed as a troublesome patient decided to see if she could find another way to heal. She did, and today she helps women find their own natural balance without the use of drugs or hormones. Head on over to the show notes page for more information about this episode and for links to the resources discussed in the interview.
