The tragic thing about PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or ovarian cysts are that it comes with many different symptoms and effects, presenting itself in different ways in different women. This makes it hard to diagnose, and it also makes it hard for women to know exactly what they should be doing to treat it.
A hormonal imbalance that affects somewhere between five and ten percent of all women of childbearing age, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or ovarian cysts has effects that range from heartbreaking to humiliating. Some of the most severe symptoms include effects on pregnancy. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or ovarian cysts can cause anovulation and infertility; alternatively, it can also lead to effects including skin and hair problems. In some cases, it can lead to male pattern baldness; in others, hirsutism (that is, the growth of excess hair on the face or body).
Women living with this condition need not despair, however. There measures that can be taken to eliminate these symptoms, including some surprising, all-natural methods!
Spearmint Tea and Hirsutism
One of the most recent discoveries in the realm of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or ovarian cysts research has to do with spearmint tea, specifically its effects on hair growth. In a scientific study, women who consumed spearmint tea twice a day experienced a significant decrease in testosterone production; testosterone is what tends to be the root cause of hirsutism.
So is spearmint tea a cure for this excess hair growth? Maybe and maybe not. Virtually all of the women surveyed said that they experienced a noticeable decrease in hair growth as a result of drinking spearmint tea. In terms of the quantifiable amount of hair on the body or face, there was no discernable difference. Still, because of the decreased testosterone levels, scientists are hopeful that spearmint tea could offer real benefits to women grappling with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or ovarian cysts.
Other Natural Means
But there is even better news for women who have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or ovarian cysts, including those with hirsutism and those without. The condition is based in Insulin Resistance, the body’s inability to properly utilize glucose from the blood steam. This problem can be remedied by increasing the level of exercise you get and eating a more nutritious, nutrient-rich diet—which means, in short, that Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or ovarian cysts can be reversed simply by living a healthier lifestyle.
Insulite Laboratories, a Boulder, Colorado USA based company, is committed to reversing Insulin Resistance – a potentially dangerous imbalance of blood glucose and insulin. Scientific research has revealed that this disorder can be a primary cause of excess weight gain and obesity, plus Pre-Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Insulin Resistance can also underlie the cluster of increased risk factors for cardiovascular damage called Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) as well as PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).
Recognizing that there are millions of people who need help, Insulite Labs has designed what is considered the most effective systematic approach to reversing Insulin Resistance and these associated disorders. Insulite Laboratories is recognized worldwide for developing systems to address the underlying causes of Metabolic Syndrome, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), excess weight/obesity, pre-diabetes, and Type 2 Diabetes.
