Common hormonal disorder PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) affects one in four women. The sex hormones get out of balance. Normally the ovaries make a tiny amount of male sex hormones (androgens). In PCOD (Polycystic Ovary Disease) they start making slightly more androgens. This may cause you to stop ovulating, getting acne and extra facial and body hair.

To treat PCOD your doctor might prescribe birth control pills, metformin to help you have a regular menstrual cycle or fertility medicines, if you have trouble getting pregnant. All this will bandage the existing symptoms only to exaggerate side effects later. A clean eating plan, however can go a long way in treating the causative factors and finally eliminating and curing the disease. The overwhelming evidence of contemporary science is that food is a major contributing cause for PCOD and other major illnesses. The particular dietary factor most implicated in this relationship is the overconsumption of simple sugars and hormone injected dairy. The interesting thing about this problem is that they can often be prevented and managed with simple adjustments in our daily living.

The attention to food and nutrients to encourage proper functioning of the gland is often ignored. The nutrients that the thyroid gland needs are easily available in many food items. Let’s use the right information to heal our thyroid effectively.
