When I worked with Dr. Lark to overcome my PCOS, she recommended a number of healthy, lifestyle-based treatments. In addition to completely changing my diet (no wheat, dairy, sugar, caffeine, and alcohol), she also suggest I add a few nutrient to my supplementation regimen.
Firstly, to treat my insulin resistance, Dr. Lark suggested I eat 20 to 30 grams of fiber a day to help stabilize my blood sugar level. To manage my estrogen dominance and bring my excess estrogen levels under control, I added 600 mg of fish oil and two tablespoons of ground flaxseed a day to my plan. I also started taking 400 mg of magnesium 15,000 IU of beta-carotene, 100 mg of vitamin B6, 800 mg of vitamin C, and 800 IU of vitamin E, in addition to my multinutrient.
Within a two to three months, my estrogen dominance was under control and my female hormone levels were within the normal range. Best of all, I wasnt getting the horrific periods and menstrual cramps that had plagued me for years.
If you suffer from estrogen dominance or PCOS, try this regimen for yourself. Youll be glad you did.
