Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Afflicts More Than 1 in 10 Women, causing obesity, infertility, increased miscarriage rates, adult acne, increased risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes, and more. September marks a campaign to increase awareness of this common, misunderstood and potentially debilitating illness.
Women suffering from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome – a complex disorder of the endocrine system affecting 11% of women, according to a report from The Adelaide University – often find themselves desperately seeking relief from their myriad symptoms. Research shows that 9 in 10 women with PCOS consulted more than one health professional prior to their diagnosis, half took more than six months to receive a confirmed diagnosis and 4 in 10 were very dissatisfied with how they were informed about their illness.
According to the Robinson Institute “little information is given about lifestyle management or complications of PCOS even though 57% of women were confident their lifestyle management will improve their condition.” Lifestyle management is also what the latest research shows is ‘the best medicine’, and is the foundation of Dr. Rebecca Harwin’s new, comprehensive book ‘Conquer Your PCOS Naturally’.
Conquer Your PCOS Naturally – A New Book Offers A New Approach Typical treatment protocols for PCOS include a whole host of medications. From birth control pills and insulin-sensitizing medications to ovulation induction, anti-androgen medicines and topical medications, many of these conventional treatment paths can prove both ineffective and even toxic to the body.
In a desperate search for a better way, Dr. Rebecca Harwin slowly and systematically developed a cutting edge, natural approach to PCOS relief – a method she’s now compiled into an exhaustive treatment plan online and in her new book, ‘Conquer Your PCOS Naturally’.
“I won my battle against PCOS and I did it without the invasive treatments, toxic chemicals and ineffective interventions that pharmaceutical medicine has to offer. I lost approximately 20kg, and have kept it off. My period returned, and I remember exactly where I was the first time I ovulated. I no longer suffer from acne, mood swings, hot flushes, my energy levels are balanced, and my excessive hair has reduced.”
Dr. Harwin says “I knew many other women were suffering just as I had done and I also knew there was very limited accurate information available. I realized I had a responsibility to get this powerful information into the hands, minds and hearts of other women with PCOS. My book ‘Conquer Your PCOS Naturally’ is dedicated to helping women regain their health, boost their fertility, restore their period, lose excessive weight, and live a PCOS free life,” she said.
“Life-Changing”, “A Must Read For Anyone With PCOS”, “A Definitive Guide For Treatment”
The ‘Conquer Your PCOS Naturally’ approach is already enjoying a steady stream of accolades and affirmations from PCOS patients and medical professionals across the globe. According to Stacy Miller of Raleigh, North Carolina, this book has been“life changing” and after feeling “lost in a sea of information” following her diagnosis a year earlier, Miller found that reading the book armed her with the information she needed to reduce her disease risk and improve her fertility. “I feel now that I have the power to control my body, instead of continuing to let my body control me,” she said. Dana Adams, a PCOS sufferer and recent convert to the natural treatment path, agreed and pointed out that ‘Conquer Your PCOS Naturally’ is the first thing she’s read on the subject that didn’t leave her feeling mystified. “One can certainly mine the internet for information, but be warned, you will be overwhelmed with an astounding amount of recommendations of supplements, medications, therapies and the like. While there are some books out there that address the issue of PCOS, Dr. Harwin [looks] at your health and wellness as a whole, giving excellent advice on nutrition, stress management, food toxicity, supplements, exercise, and the holy grail for those of us trying to conceive, fertility. [It’s] one of the best books I have read on the subject.”
Dr. Joel Fugleberg, himself a proponent of natural treatment alternatives for PCOS sufferers, called the book not only a must read for PCOS sufferers, but also for the “health care provider looking to broaden their own understanding of this condition.” And Dr. Michael Elstein of the Eternal Health Medical Center in Sydney, Australia, agreed by commenting, “I love this book’s clarity and precision. This is a book not only for the layperson suffering from this disorder but also for the professional who wants a definitive guide for treating it.” Elstein also added, “What I love about Dr. Rebecca Harwin’s book is that it is a simple easy to read journey through all the natural means of attacking what is arguably the number one metabolic and hormonal disaster that is compromising the lives of so many women.”
With September’s PCOS Awareness Month and Dr. Harwin’s tireless dedication to raising the awareness of this common, potentially debilitating, syndrome, there is hope of recovery – and a healthy life – for women afflicted with PCOS.
