Naturopathic treatment for PCOS
The goals of treatment are to balance hormone levels, promote ovulation, weight loss and to increase fertility.
Botanical medicine, nutrition and dietary modifications will be a main part of the individualized treatment plan to decrease production of male hormones, help balance blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol and to establish a healthy weight. Acupuncture can also be effective at restoring natural ovulation and fertility.
