Herbal and nutritional treatments FOR PCOS
So what other treatment options are available?
Herbal and Nutritional treatments can work wonders for people diagnosed with PCOS. In Naturopathy we look at the individual, not just the diagnosis. We come up with a personalised treatment strategy that is both evidence-based and tailored to your individual needs, lifestyle and constitution.
Our treatments involve high quality, practitioner-only nutritional and herbal supplements.
These can include a combination of nutrients such as B-Vitamins, Magnesium, Zinc, Inositol, Chromium, Essential Fatty Acids and Lipoic Acid. And can also include herbal medicines such as Liquorice, Peony, St Johns Wort, Gymnema, Nigella, Withania, Schisandra and Chaste tree.
Our supplements are prescribed to you based on a range of factors. We use our years of experience working with the nutrients and herbs to understand what is most appropriate for your condition and how it is presenting in you, the individual.
Also, because we treat holistically, many of the supplements we prescribe have been chosen to help with other symptoms you’re experiencing, such as poor digestion, sleeplessness, low energy, skin healing etc.
We also work with you to develop and encourage long-term strategies that stop PCOS from returning. These strategies keep your menstrual cycle healthy and regular, prevent your symptoms from returning and ensure any herbal or nutritional supplementing is limited and/or short term.
