Hormonal balance is vital to a healthy, cancer-free mind and body, but can be disrupted in so many ways. Fluctuations occur naturally, such as in puberty, menopause and perimenopause. However, hormone imbalances may also be caused by toxins or an unbalanced lifestyle.
So many ladies have contacted me with hormonal imbalances questions. Sorry I can't reply to everyone, but I hope this post (and more to come) help you beauties out. There's so much to talk about, so we need to start somewhere.
Lets talk about PCOS today. Do you know that you don't have to have “cystic” ovaries to be diagnosed with this condition. Although if you Google PCOS you see it linked to overweight in all the articles, you do not necessarily have to have extra pounds to have it. You can be skinny and even have regular periods with PCOS.
There are different phenotypes of PCOS. Some women have high androgens, signs of this condition include increased facial and body hair, crazy mood swings, terrible acne, and losing hair on their head. Some have irregular periods and Polysistic ovaries. Factors like environment, age, genetics, weight influence your PCOS type. Weight might not trigger PCOS, but it contributes to the severity of your symptoms.
We are all unique. Each woman with PCOS has a unique set of imbalances that need to be addressed. However, there appears to be one common link. Women with all different PCOS types have at least a mild insulin resistance.
