Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a multidimensional hormonal syndrome affecting women, especially during their reproductive years. Hormonal imbalances within the reproductive physiology begin to create changes in the ovaries that imparts further changes in the body that range from irregular to no menstrual cycle, weight gain, glucose intolerance, heavy and painful periods, facial hair, or depression and/or anxiety. Each case may present slightly different but key features and diagnostic tests can help determine if this syndrome may be something you are currently dealing with.
Naturopathic Medicine focuses on supporting the body from a multitude of directions and systems to ensure that the body is armed with the appropriate tools to handle abnormal hormonal levels, blood sugar dysregulation and insulin levels, supporting regular ovulation, and assisting with weight loss and exercise.
Treatment modalities will range, depending on the case and patient goals. Dr. Savard will consider each women and their unique situation to ensure that patient goals are reinforced with the comprehensive treatment plans. Therapies may include acupuncture, orthomolecular medicine, diet and nutrition, botanical medicine and/or counseling.
