Treat from the Root
I remember my first solo doctors visit once I turned 18 years old. I always knew something was wrong – I just didn’t know what. It never occurred to me that my genes have a predisposition to a condition that forced me to better understand my body. The doctors did a wonderful job writing me prescriptions, but a horrible job explaining what caused this disorder in the first place. I often see women asking questions like “Is keto good for PCOS?” “What’s the best exercise plan for PCOS” or even “What’s the best diet for PCOS?”. This is kind of like asking, “What type of oil should I use for cooking?” Answer is, “It depends on what type of dish you’re making.”
To determine a proper treatment plan, its key to first identify the root cause of your PCOS and understanding your PCOS type.
There are 4 different types of PCOS called “phenotypes”. Since there are various factors that cause PCOS, it’s common for women to experience different symptoms. This is why PCOS is considered a “condition” or “syndrome” and not a disease.
