Welcome To Thriving With PCOS!

My previous book How to Build a Strong PCOS Practice, Treating One Beautiful Woman at a Time was written for healthcare providers. This, my second book, is for people affected by PCOS, whether you personally have PCOS or a friend or loved one does.

A common condition affecting approximately 10 percent of women, PCOS is complex, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. If you learn all you can about it and get the right treatment and support, then you will live a happier, healthier life.

The PCOS treatment helps you to lose weight, decrease insulin levels, balance hormones, improve fertility, regulate cycles, and decrease the risk of long-term health complications. A combination of exercise, healthy eating, medication, and/or supplements may be used to treat the condition.

Maybe you were motivated to seek treatment for PCOS because of a specific problem like weight gain, dark hair growth, or difficulty getting pregnant. As you initiate treatment, you will find more benefits to your health and well-being than you ever expected.

In the short run, you will feel better because you will have fewer PCOS symptoms (fatigue, sugar cravings, dark hair growth, acne, mood swings, bleeding irregularities, weight gain, and so on). Your long-term health will also benefit because you will decrease your odds of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and other health complications.

I hope this guide will inspire you to do everything you can to proactively treat PCOS. When you treat PCOS you will feel and look better and people will ask you what you are doing. Take the opportunity to educate others about PCOS and be an advocate within your own family and community. You will likely have many opportunities to share your knowledge and your personal success story. Just remember, PCOS is manageable with the right treatment and support!
