Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a common disorder, affecting up to 12% of all women according to POSAA, the Australian PCOS Association.

The most common symptoms of PCOS are:

  • Male pattern excessive hair growth (Hirsutism)
  • Insulin resistance
  • High androgen levels (hyperandrogenemia)
  • Acne
  • Failure to ovulate (anovulation)
  • Painful or irregular periods
  • Infertility

Treatment of PCOS with naturopathy involves treatments and strategies which aim to reduce symptoms such as hair growth and insulin resistance, reduce the occurrence of cysts and balance hormonal levels.

Katherine uses quality herbal medicines and nutritional supplements which are effective in reducing insulin resistance. By reducing insulin resistance, hormonal balance is more easily achieved.

Naturopathic PCOS treatment may help to reduce insulin resistance and reduce androgen levels, assisting with weight loss. Reductions in hair and improved fertility can also be achieved. After your first consultation with Katherine you will be informed of which of these aims are the most important in treatment to improve your condition.
