Nicole Granato joins on me on the podcast today. Nicole is a holistic nutritionist and wellness coach, who specializes in treating hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, eating disorders and much more. Today’s we’re discussing PCOS “Polycystic ovary syndrome” The Mayo Clinic’s definition of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs. Nicole challenges this traditional definition of PCOS. In her opinion you shouldn’t be diagnosed with PCOS unless an ultrasound shows you have cysts on your ovaries.
Traditionally Dr.’s treat PCOS by prescribing Birth Control. In this episode Nicole challenges that treatment option and provides holistic ways to treat PCOS. She cured her own PCOS without the use of Birth Control or other medication and has helped many other women do the same.
Key Takeaway: There is more then one way to treat PCOS and you shouldn’t necessarily believe you have PCOS unless you have cysts on your ovaries.
