PCOS Root Causes

The symptoms of PCOS are only the tip of the iceberg, the part we see and experience but they arise from various root causes found in your metabolic and endocrine hormones 

Be sure to listen to this episode where I will be outlining the root causes of PCOS and how to finally narrow in on what your body needs to make progress with your symptoms

PCOS Root Causes

There are four primary root cause categories. As you listen you will see that we break some of these down further into subcategories but are the primary four: 

  • The insulin effect
  • Inflammation
  • Hormone and nutrition disturbances
  • Stress response 

Once you get clear on which one is your current primary root cause then you can follow the care plan for each root cause. 

An Environment of Health

Don’t forget that as our environment changes so does how our genetics respond, allowing our PCOS root causes to heal leading to improvement of our symptoms. 

Learning what your current PCOS root cause is can be incredibly beneficial so I hope you have your listening ears ready, now go listen and learn all about your PCOS root cause.
