Abstract :

PCOS is a disease that affects millions of women around the world. It is extremely common in North America and is also one of the most common causes of female infertility. Conventional treatment options for PCOS patients normally include oral contraceptives, spironolactone or metformin for blood sugar regulation. It is important for us to realize that there are several dietary, lifestyle and alternative interventions that help to improve patients��? overall wellness and make this disease much more manageable. I am going to focus on a number of alternative treatments that have some good evidence backing their safety and efficacy in the complimentary treatment of PCOS. These include botanical medicine, acupuncture, dietary interventions and lifestyle interventions. I will also touch on the importance of stress management in PCOS patients and how we can naturally optimize the physiological environment of a woman with PCOS who is trying to conceive as well as improve her chances of successful conception, a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
