You are wise to want to find a doctor that will look at and treat the whole person. If you would be interested in working with a Naturopathic Doctor, a physician who specializes in alternative medicine, go to HYPERLINK "http://www.naturopathic.org" http://www.naturopathic.org and do the "Find an ND" search located on the opening page. You would want to look for an ND with some expertise in women's medicine.
The benefit of working with an ND is that they work holistically, treating the whole person, and address nutritional needs. This is important in a disease like PCOS, which responds well to lifestyle changes.
The Insulite PCOS System is designed to address PCOS, but it is not designed to heal uterine fibroids. However I do think that some of its symptoms would be improved by using the Insulite PCOS System.
Women with PCOS may be able to improve their fertility by losing weight and improving the insulin resistance that underlies PCOS.
Our view on the pharmaceutical treatment of PCOS is that there is no one drug on the market that will change your condition. The only way to reverse the disorder is to reduce elevations in insulin, which directly affect testosterone and other hormonal changes that are responsible for causing PCOS.
The Insulite PCOS System was created to address the cause of PCOS. With those on Glucophage, we cannot say that we have noticed dramatic results in weight loss, hair growth, acne or other symptoms related to PCOS.
These symptoms can be partially controlled by diet and exercise changes. The addition of nutrients will help you become more sensitive to your insulin and reduce the symptoms of insulin resistance and PCOS.
Good luck in finding a doctor in your area!
