Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or PCOS (also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome), is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, affecting approximately 1 in 15 women approximately 10% of all women. The goal in treating PCOS is to focus on nutrition/diet and weight loss. One of the goals is to balance out blood sugar so that there is a decrease in insulin resistance that will improve insulin sensitivity.

Functional/Chinese medicine treats the underlying causes and imbalances with PCOS to correct the problem at its root, allowing your body to self regulate and return to a normal menstrual cycle.

At AHS we utilize time tested protocols which include Acupuncture, nutritional support, stress management and specific herbal medicines to assist you to return to a normal cycle, reduce weight, improve your skin and reduce excessive hair growth.
