That day you hear those 3 dreaded words…
“You have PCOS”
First of all…congratulations…and I'm sorry to hear that…but not really.
Whenever I hear someone was ‘officially' diagnosed with something, I see it as an OPPORTUNITY for a blessing in disguise.
When you hear you ‘have something', are you MORE or LESS likely to take your health seriously? And make some healthy changes for the better. 🙂
So THAT is the ‘I'm not really sorry' part.
And CONGRATULATIONS … because they ‘found' it.
50% of women go undiagnosed…and for many, it takes YEARS if not DECADES before they discover it. As you read on, you'll learn how detrimental it can be to your health to have gone undiagnosed, going crazy in the interim…KNOWING intuitively that:
SOMETHING IS JUST OFF – YET THE DOCTORS TELL YOU, YOU'RE FINE!
Yet, you KNOW you're not.
Sadly…for MANY women…if and when they DO get a ‘diagnosis', it's AFTER years of suffering and money spent on band aids to symptoms spewing from underneath…that is PCOS. All you can see and feel is what's happening on the outside, yet no one knows what's happening at the root, that surface as symptoms.
Many women spend tens of thousands of $ on infertility treatments that DON'T work.
I'm of the mindset that … if your body WON'T allow you to conceive … it's YOUR body's way of texting you ‘Hey Goddess, something's not right down here, can we fix our stress, before adding on the stress of 9 months making a baby?'
GRANTED – when we consider fertility success, 40% is attributed to the female's health, 40% to the male and 20% is ‘other/unknown'. But…you're here to read about PCOS, so that's for another article on fertility (PLACEHOLDER LINK FOR FUTURE BLOG). 🙂
The other segment of Goddesses is here to read more about PCOS … maybe you haven't been diagnosed yet, but you're suspicious you may have it. Or you landed here because you're having all of these unwanted symptoms that are characteristic of PCOS.
Whichever Goddess Warrior you are, READ ON – For mind blowing stats and:
THE best solution to how to heal is about 2 minutes from your ‘soon to be rejoicing' eyes!
The National Institutes of Health estimates that 50 percent of women with PCOS will become diabetic or pre-diabetic by age 40. OMG this is CRAZY. If you're diabetic, it's customary to energy crash, waistline expand, and appetite suppress…also on the horizon “I eat healthy, but I still feel like crap”, or “I sleep so much, but when I wake up, I'm totally not rested”. Ugh…AND…Some studies have also shown women with PCOS to be at higher risk for suicide as well as endometrial, ovarian and breast cancer. Sadly, I see this A LOT in my practice.
DEPRESSION IS VERY COMMON IN WOMEN WITH HORMONAL IMBALANCE, INCLUDING PCOS
“PCOS affects at least 1 in 10 women, and has very important detrimental consequences if not treated or predicted early. Many women with PCOS don't know they have the disorder. Often, it takes 5 to 7 doctors and many years before they find someone who can help them with their disorder.” Dr. Ricardo Azziz, CEO of Georgia Regents Health System.
WHAT WE ALSO KNOW IN THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY:
“PCOS is one of the most critical, underserved, under-diagnosed and under-funded conditions affecting women's health,” says Sasha Ottey, Executive Director of PCOS Challenge, Inc.
PCOS is tricky. Without the right guidance, it's almost impossible to overcome. Nor does it go away or get better on it's own. Nope. If you are lazy or scared or decide to just cross your fingers and wait, it's not going to work.
Without the right treatment, your acne, facial hair, and infertility will last indefinitely. You might never get to post another picture of yourself in your skinny jeans. You might never have the radiant skin of the girl next to you at yoga class. You might miss out on the best sex of your life. You might — seriously — never be able to have a baby. PCOS lasts until you find the right treatment. Do you want to wait until you're too old to do anything, or do you want to act now?
ENTER STEFANI RUPER – GODDESS OF PALEO FOR WOMEN
First of all, she's one of my dearest girlfriends. I adore her to pieces. AND she wears a massive Superwoman logo on her chest, in my eyes. Stefani has helped THOUSANDS of women on five different continents to overcome PCOS. The one thing they all had in common when they finished working together was overwhelming relief. Sometimes they even gushed tears.
You've tried prescriptions. You've tried eating less and exercising more. You've tried a low carb diet. You've tried more confangled herbal whatchamacallit remedies than you can count. Nothing's worked.
(You're not alone. This happens to almost all of the ~30 million women who suffer from PCOS.)
Doctors don't understand PCOS
Diane on stage, mic in hand, introducing Stefani.
“Miss Ruper…why don't you come on up here and share your story with these beautiful Goddesses, who are looking for solutions and hope to reverse their PCOS like you did. I hear you have an amazing journey and recovery to share. Please step on up”.
Stefani grabs microphone…(grab your Protein shake ladies, it's getting real):
“Ever feel like you're the only one who knows what you're going through and genuinely wants to fix it? I can't tell you how many of my clients sit in waiting rooms for hours at a time, only to be rushed through a quickie seven-minute appointment with their doctors. They only get to ask half of a question before they are handed a set of prescription drugs and ushered out the door. If they are lucky and have a doctor who wants to heal their underlying problems, they still are just hurriedly told to “eat less and exercise more.”
This might be an exaggeration, but it reveals a very serious problem for women who have PCOS. Doctors often fail to see you for who you really are. They fail to see your unique problems. They can't see one test result and slap a prescription in your hand and consider the matter closed. That's just plain wrong.
Worse is the fact that even when you do manage to catch a doctor's attention, the most common way doctors treat PCOS these days is with prescription drugs. But these drugs do NOTHING to solve the underlying problem. They are only band-aids. They only cover up the problem. In fact, they actually make it worse. Side effects like depression and weight gain are common on the kinds of pills prescribed for PCOS.
If you try to treat your PCOS in a doctor's office like I did, you may be signing up for hundreds of dollars in tests and prescriptions, thousands of dollars in fertility treatments, extremely risky side effects (I personally had to go to the ER), and disappointment after disappointment. This was my life for years. Prescription drugs are NOT the answer for you if you want to be healthy and feel good, whether ASAP or ten years from now.
Even “experts” on the internet don't understand it
Here's the kicker: not only do doctors fail to understand PCOS properly, but so do just about all the bloggers and websites about PCOS online! This is partly why it took me so long to figure out my PCOS and how to overcome it. All the information is confusing. It's contradictory. Do you eat carbohydrates or no? Try a milk thistle supplement or no? Count calories or no?
Now, there are some very good-intentioned bloggers, authors, and doctors out there. They want to fix your underlying problem and help you heal for good. But they go about it all wrong!
They give the same old recommendations all the time: eat less, exercise more, don't eat carbohydrates, give up dessert, and eat only lean chicken breast for the rest of your life.
These recommendations aren't just ineffective. They are downright harmful. They will most likely make you less healthy and have worse symptoms in the long run.
There is so much more to PCOS, and so much more that can help you overcome it!
If only they knew!
The normal way just doesn't work
PCOS is poorly understood and treated by just about everybody. Doctors don't get it. Bloggers don't get it. Authors don't get it. If you do things the normal “eat less exercise more, cut carbohydrates” way, you might be doomed to PCOS forever.
