Web site for PCOS sisters...

It really makes me very sad to see that the only option some of you are given is metformin or bcps, both of which are artificial and there's no way the body would have a deficiency of either. I am constantly feeling frustrated to see that allopathic medicine rarely considers nutritional deficiencies or the presence of parasites, toxins and heavy metals in the body or even emotions as real and responsible for much ill health. I'm sure some of you will think what I've written is a bit "far out" but please don't make up your minds on that until you see for yourselves. To that effect, I'd like to suggest that you read the following article about iodine supplementation by Jorge D. Flechas, M.D. (PCOS is mentioned halfway through the article).

During the past 2-3 months I've been doing extensive reading about iodine and I'm convinced that we have been seriously misinformed about our need for this very essential mineral and along with others I feel I've been called to the "mission" of raising awareness to all those who could be directly affected by this unfortunate lack of information. If those of you here who are reading this become diligent at getting well informed and end up getting cured, then you could pass all your positive experiences to other and leave your mark in the world.

Just to say, Drugs aren't always necessary. I've had PCOS for more than 15 years and I control it now with diet. I was just a kid when I had surgery to remove one ovary from tumors and to drain my other ovary that was full of cysts.

After a year, no cysts, no pain and regular as clockwork. The very best thing you can do for yourself is to change your diet. Diabetes drugs (in my opinion) just allow people to keep abusing their bodies with food their bodies can not tolerate. Supplements that encourage your body to balance the hormones are fine.

It's very simple (and very difficult). The problem is sugar. It's the starches that are the biggest issue. One way I minimize the damage is only allowing sugar/starches in the morning when I know I'll be active all day and using the energy. For dinner though no starches, no sugars. Sometimes I've been more strict than others and cut out all refined grains and all extra starchy foods, only eating whole unprocessed grains like barley, brown rice, quinoa, oats.

I believe diet IS the source. It is an endocrine system problem. The problem is sugar. Help your endocrine system get back on track, it starts functioning normally. Take drugs that treat symptoms, always have problem.
Very good point! However, there may be more to it than that. The reason many of us crave sugar and starches is because we have candida and/or fungus overgrowth in our bodies and unless that is addressed abstaining will become harder and harder as time goes by.

I don't have PCOS (a cousin of mine does and her latest problem is thyroid papillary carcinoma) but have been afflicted by other problems as a result of candida/fungus. Since I once did the diet and herbs to kill/control it and got better, after that I kind of always knew candida/fungus may have continued to be behind my problems but it wasn't until last Sunday when I read this very interesting article about fungus that I saw all of my problems described to "a T".

I took a look at the products they sell and they are way expensive, at least for me but I believe Providence was guiding me because the reason I found that article was because I did a search after another member of a Yahoo Group I'm part of shared this link: www.curenaturalicancro.com. The Italian doctor who runs it propounds a treatment for cancer, which he believes is (at least in most cases) caused by fungus and it's simply done with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Since it was the 3rd time that I'd recently heard the link between fungus/candida and cancer I felt curious to see "who else" believed this and was amazed to find so many websites that affirm the same thing.

Baking soda is used to alkalize the body since fungus/candida only thrive in an acid environment. I am really excited about this therapy because it's so simple, easy, and inexpensive and I strongly encourage anyone who is suffering from PCOS or thyroid problems to explore this possibility by reading the above links, you never know if this could be your "magic bullet".
