Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disturbance among pre-menopausal women.  It is associated with multiple cysts in one or both ovaries and it is one of the leading causes of infertility due to lack of ovulation.

Symptoms include irregular periods or lack of periods, irregular ovulation or no ovulation, unwanted facial or body hair, oily skin, acne, breast pain, blood sugar imbalances, weight gain and mood disturbance.  Some women will experience just a few mild symptoms whilst others may have a wider range of more severe symptoms.

Precisely what causes PCOS is not known for sure, but there is emerging evidence that the higher than normal levels of testosterone often found in sufferers is worsened by increased levels of another hormone – insulin.

Also, although it is not a cause, being overweight can worsen the symptoms of PCOS.

Eat foods low on the Glycemic Index (GI) such as vegetables and whole grains. It is very important for those with PCOS to completely avoid refined carbohydrates.  Insulin is released in response to carbohydrate foods (sugars and starches), and it makes sense to limit those foodstuffs which give rise to the highest insulin levels. Foods to limit in this respect include sweet foods and sugary foods, white bread, pasta, white rice and potato.

Foods that give more controlled insulin secretion include 100 per cent wholemeal bread, brown rice, beans, pulses, nuts, seeds, green vegetables and fruits other than grapes and bananas.

Keep your blood sugar stable by eating regularly – every three to five hours is ideal.  Be sure that you include some protein and good fats (some nuts or seeds and their butters, eggs, humus etc.) at each meal. Protein foods take up to 5 hours to digest while carbohydrate foods digest within 30 minutes and can spike your blood sugar.

Eat at least five servings a day of vegetables including at least two of leafy greens such as kale, broccoli, collard greens, pak choi and cabbage.  Leafy greens contain indole-3 carbinol, which helps to regulate liver function which is key in glucose and hormone metabolism.

Eat least three daily servings of fruits like berries –which are lower on the glycemic index and high in anti-oxidants

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so also try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef. The best beef is organic grass fed beef.

www.grasslandbeef.com  The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey.


  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product. You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil


  • Adding vitamin B complex to your daily routine will help to restore liver normal function in insulin balancing.
  • Take Chlorophyll – it reduces symptoms of hypoglycaemia without raising blood glucose level. You buy liquid chlorophyll and add it to your water and sip it throughout the day
  • Magnesium, Chromium and Alpha lipoic acid should also be included (see research section for more information)

Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking? Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this  illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.

We know that when the body is out of balance, energy doesn’t flow, leading blockages and eventually disease. Here are some things you can do to combat stress and restore balance:

  • Go to a Dr Morter BEST (Bio-Energetic Synchronisation Technique) Practitioner.
