I remember when I first learned I had polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). I had all the symptoms (stubborn weight gain, embarrassing stray hairs on my chin, irregular and painful periods, etc.). I was glad to at least have a name for what I experienced month after month, but now what?
It wasnt until I worked with Dr. Lark that I was truly able to get my PCOS under control. The first step was to realize that PCOS is a common condition that affects many women with estrogen dominance. In addition to following a specific diet and taking targeted supplements, I also used the best prescription possible a pair of running shoes.
Studies have shown that exercise not only helps women with estrogen dominance and PCOS gain better control over insulin and glucose, but also promotes hormonal balance. Plus, exercise helps reduce stress, which is an aggravating factor of PCOS.
If you have PCOS or estrogen dominance, your fix is a walk, run, jog, bike, or triathlon away. Its the best (and easiest) prescription I know!
