How A PCOS Naturopath in Brisbane Can Help You.
Wondering how a PCOS Naturopath in Brisbane can help you? Sound this found familiar? You’ve had these symptoms for awhile, but never been able to get any answers, or maybe no one took you seriously and told you they were all in your head:
- Irregular cycles
- Persistent Acne
- Intense cravings
- Easily gain weight and near impossible to lose weight
- Low energy and constant fatigue
- Crippling anxiety and depression
- Trouble sleeping
Then FINALLY you got a PCOS diagnosis, and you thought you this solved your problem. But really all you got were given was a script for the oral contraceptive pill, or metformin. Or maybe you were told to lose 10% of your body weight and come back. In reality, you’ve been told next to nothing and are leaving with no understand of what’s causing your PCOS or what you can do about it.
This is a story I hear all too often in my clinic. Did you know that seeing a PCOS naturopath is one of the best ways to help manage your symptoms? If you’re anything like my other clients then you want help with the following:
- To have a regular symptom-free menstrual cycles
- Start ovulating again
- Feel more vibrant and have more energy
- Have more restorative sleep
- Reduce cravings
- See clear glowing skin and healthy hair
- Stable moods
- Lose weight for good
- Improve fertility
Here is how I help women just like you. The first thing I do to help you with your PCOS is to see what the root cause of your PCOS is by testing!
Testing for PCOS
We need to run the right tests to figure out what’s driving your PCOS, from this we can create a plan to reduce your symptoms such as irregular cycles, acne, unwanted hair growth, thinning hair, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and poor sleep.
Here are some of the tests I run for PCOS:
- – Testosterone
- – Androstenedione
- – SHBG (Sex hormone binding globulin)
- – Oestradiol
- – Progesterone
- – LH (Luteinizing Hormone)
- – FSH (follicle Stimulating Hormone)
- – Prolactin
- – Cortisol
- – DHEA-s
- – Fasting Insulin
- – TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
- – Free T4
- – Free T3
- – LFT (Liver function test)
- – CRP (C-reactive protein)
- – Homocysteine
This give me a deep understanding of what is driving your PCOS and then we create an individual treatment plan to address those factors. I frequently use herbs like berberine, nutrients like inositol, and together we can brainstorm lifestyle changes that fit into your routine!
