Got Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)? Here’s everything you need to know about this disorder, as well as how you can manage it.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, often referred to as PCOS, is a common metabolic, hormone, and reproductive disorder that affects 1 out of 10 women. What’s more, women who have this condition have increased levels of insulin that do not work effectively, excess male hormones (androgens) from their ovaries, or both.

And although the main cause of PCOS is unknown, some contributing factors include genetics, stress, obesity, an unhealthy diet, and lifestyle.

Some PCOS symptoms include irregular and painful periods, excess facial and body hair, acne, weight gain, mood changes, and infertility. If left untreated, PCOS could impact the development of other lifestyle-related diseases. That is why long-term management is needed to improve its symptoms and women’s overall health

Here are a few things you should do to treat PCOS symptoms:

Improve the Quality of Food

Highly processed foods are more likely to activate inflammation in the body, which in turn, can cause PCOS. Thus, it’s important to create a space where the balance in carbohydrates, protein, and fat can significantly manage the symptoms of PCOS over time. Alongside this, quality is just as important

The Baron Method has curated the top 6 worst food ingredients and gradually eliminating these from your diet is a great starting point to becoming healthy.

On the other hand, excellent sources of fatty acids—such as algae or fish oil, flax seeds, chia seeds, fresh-caught fishes, and avocado—can regulate the body’s response to improve hormone regulation, evidently reducing PCOS symptoms over time. 

Manage Stress

Oxidative stress—brought by physiological changes in the body—can cause deeper damage over time. Avoiding or at least managing all forms of stress is significant, whether from internal or external factors. 

One of which is the hyperdrive of cortisol or what we know of as the stress hormone. PCOS symptoms may be more prominent when the body is exposed to several stressors. Hence why these factors need to be addressed through supplements and lifestyle changes

Likewise, incorporating physical activities on a day-to-day basis may be an effective way to manage stress and improve mental health. After all, losing even a few pounds can help regulate your period and improve fertility.

Enhance the Quality of Sleep

Sleep can dramatically shift the body’s circadian rhythm in getting into the right path when we speak of “balance” or “equilibrium”, which can help the body control PCOS symptoms. To help your body adjust to its own circadian rhythm, set up a sleep schedule and stick to it. It’s also important to note that the quality of sleep is just as important as the quantity of it. 

Each woman’s experience of PCOS is challenging and different, thus, it needs a personalized health plan to treat it. However, it’s important to know that you are not alone. If you or someone you know would like to know how to manage your PCOS, feel free to get in touch with us at www.baronmethod.com, and we’ll talk about how we can help you.
