PCOS/Infertility/Female hormone problems

crazy hormonesPolycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affects 5-10 percent of menstruating women, and it is one of the most common causes of infertility. PCOS symptoms include the inability to lose weight, hair loss, fatigue after meals, hormone imbalances, and sugar cravings. Symptomatically, PCOS can appear very much like a low thyroid problem. Interestingly, PCOS and hypothyroid are the 2 leading causes of infertility in the United States.

Using blood chemistry tests, PCOS can be identified by insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body cells become resistant to insulin due to a high-carbohydrate diet and/or not eating regular meals which can create hypoglycemic episodes which leads to insulin spikes creating excess testosterone production. As testosterone levels rise, the cells become further resistant to insulin, and it’s a slow downward spiral to infertility and PCOS. Insulin resistance also promotes inflammation and immune system problems, which predispose the person to an autoimmune disease. PCOS is also indicated by elevated triglycerides and cholesterol, especially IF THE TRIGLYCERIDES ARE HIGHER THAN THE CHOLESTROL LEVELS. Can you see why it’s important to address Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?

In infertility cases, we can also look at a salivary panel that is taken over the course of an entire month to see all the hormonal nuances of the cycling female. Proper testing is essential in locating the defect and supporting a healthy balance of blood sugar and hormone signalling. A hormone test done on one day of the month does not give the information you need to fix the problem! Healthy women cycle, unhealthy women don't! One of the hallmarks of PCOS is amennorhea, or lack of a period. If you are irregular in your cycle or don't have a period at all that is a sign of being unhealthy. You may also still menstruate without ovulating. That is called an "anovulatory period" and will curtail your pregnancy efforts. Again, the way to properly evaluate your hormonal system is to do the CORRECT testing. We do that.

Doesn't it make sense that the body will not become pregnant when the mother is in ill health? In our office, we strive to correct metabolic imbalances like insulin resistance and support healthy, NORMAL hormone levels. When a woman is supported in this way, she becomes a more healthy vessel to carry a fetus and mother nature will take the proper course and in most cases, a pregnancy will occur.

Don't submit yourself to invasive procedures, hormone injections and financial burdens without exploring a more natural, common sense apporach. Call our office today and schedule your consultation with Dr. Lawrence to find out if you are a good candidate for one of our neuro-metablic recovery programs.

“I am a healthcare professional myself and I got totally frustrated with the fact I could not shed any of the weight that I had gained.

"I saw was the half page ad for the Diabetes dinner. I saw it was appointment only and thought they weren't going to have any room, but I called anyway and got in. It was an answer to my prayer. Especially after the first week and my sugar started going down and each week it kept going down. I had a visit with my doctor and my blood sugar was 88 and my A1C was 5.8 which was down from 9.6."*
