PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome) is a debilitating and upsetting condition that hundreds of girls and women suffer from that can lead to great anxiety and distress because no one believes their symptoms are real. Many are mis diagnosed, fobbed off, dismissed and have been on an extraordinary roundabout of various treatments.
It is a deeply distressing condition for women. This can cause many symptoms such as menstrual irregularities, unwanted and rapid weight gain, difficulty in losing weight despite lots of exercise and healthy eating, acne, unwanted facial and body hair, difficulties in falling pregnant and increased risk of miscarriage. If left untreated can also lead to type 2 diabetes and other serious health conditions.
Many sufferers are also at increased risk of anxiety and depression. In our practice we have worked with hundreds of people with PCOS.
We strongly believe here that a multi disciplinary approach is needed that is in a warm caring and compassionate non-judgmental environment.
We create a thorough and multi faceted management plan in collaboration with Australia’s leading practitioners in this field. This takes into consideration the medicinal side, a tailor made exercise program to best treat PCOS , nutritional and dietary ideas to suit your tastes and lifestyle and counselling to help with anxiety, depression and sleeplessness that so often accompanies PCOS. Self-esteem has often taken a beating through the years of despair of not knowing what is going on, feeling upset about many of the physical symptoms that you experience and embarrassment at having to deal with so many symptoms that society deems not acceptable for women.
We provide a comprehensive and holistic approach for the management of PCOS in collaboration with your medical practitioner.
