Insulin Resistance and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOs)

The prevalence of PCOs is very high nowadays and, according to statistical data, one of ten women suffers from this condition. PCOs is a result of hormonal imbalance which induces development of non-mature, enlarged follicles in ovaries.

A woman having this condition may face different health problems; however, the most common among them are:
- irregular menstrual cycles,
- low stamina,
- increased body weight,
- fatigue,
- mood changes,
- pelvic pain,
- headaches,
- insomnia,
- hair loss and skin spots...

PCOs is one of the major causes of infertility related to ovulation absence.

A very frequent condition that goes hand in hand with PCOs is insulin resistance or rather, it can be said that insulin resistance may cause development of PCOs or may worsen it. Insulin is a hormone created by pancreas. It regulates the metabolism of carbs fats, and proteins. You can find more about this topic here.

An increased insulin level induces the body to produce more androgens (male sex hormones) which is harmful for ovulation and may also induce hair loss and the formation of skin spots. A high insulin level may also cause high blood pressure, diabetes, infertility, weight gaining, heart troubles, increased cortisol level… Apart from insulin resistence, the factors that may also lead to the development of PCOs are chronic inflammation, genes, high androgens, diabetes, as well as the metabolic syndrome.

The treatment of PCOs implies that a woman should take birth control pills (contraceptive pills) which regulate sex hormones and menstruation; additionally, the suggested drugs include those that induce ovulation, those that lower the insulin level, as well as those that fight against hairy skin.

The use of The HEALTH FORMULA protocol supports this because it is related to life habits which have a significant impact on insulin resistance and PCOs.

In the first place, it is the diet that needs to be changed - it is not sufficient to take insulin lowering drugs if one maintains a diet with an intake of plenty of carbs (bread made of white flour, cakes, cookies, fruits with high sugar load, snacks, sodas, ice-creams…) which will keep both sugar and insulin blood levels high. What is, practically, recommended is food with no high sugar load, which will cause no high and no rapid blood insulin rise.

The regulation of blood glucose level (and insulin level) will be further improved in the following manner:

- recommended physical activity
(to utilize the absorbed sugar)

- detoxification
(through this procedure, the endocrine disrupting substances will be eliminated from the body. These substances are present all around us and, after the ingestion, they are metabolized and transformed into estrogen-like substances which induce hormonal imbalance both in males and females. You can find more about this topic here.

- personalized supplementation
(it additionally helps to bring back balance in organism – homeostasis; for instance, some of them are magnesium, chromium, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, N-acetilcystein, inositol, alpha-lipoic acid, herbs like Trigonella foenum gracem, Momordica charantia, Gymnema sylvestre) etc;

- regulation of body weight
(practice has shown that the protocol helped some women get pregnant normally while preparing for in-vitro fertilization)!
