PCOS Lifestyle Medicine

Root cause medicine is one of the most effective approaches to reversing and managing PCOS. It focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying causes behind the hormone imbalance, taking a comprehensive, multifaceted approach that incorporates physical, mental, emotional, and environmental factors.

What Your Body Needs 

At its core, root cause medicine involves cultivating awareness of your body’s needs and making lifestyle changes to support optimal health. This means paying attention to what you eat, how well you sleep, your mental state, the relationships in your life, your level of activity and movement, and so much more. By learning more about yourself and creating a positive environment that supports your health goals, you can take control over PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) or any other conditions that may be impacting your wellbeing.

Environmental Bubble

What is your environment bubble? It is everything that you encounter in your day to day life:

  • Food you eat
  • Sleep 
  • Mental health 
  • Calm or chaotic 
  • Relationships, friends, family, work and yourself
  • Movement
  • Clean non-toxic living – all around 

Embrace health

Whether you are just starting out on your journey towards root cause healing or want to refine already established habits and routines in order to achieve better results, there are many things you can do to get started. One great place to start is with a simple online quiz that helps you identify key areas where improvement may be needed. With this knowledge at hand, you can then take concrete steps towards embracing a healthy lifestyle that truly supports all aspects of who you are. 

So do you have your listening ears on? Good — now go listen to this episode so you can feel more confident as you create an environment of healing for your body.

So how does root cause healing even really work? 

The lifestyle approach is all-encompassing. While medications, supplements, only piecemeal little tiny bits and pieces of what’s aggravating your PCOS hormones and what’s creating the symptoms. 

When we dive down and we look at the root cause, we are addressing everything setting off the chaos to begin with.

Your [environmental] bubble includes the foods that you eat. If you’re getting enough sleep? These are all part of our environmental bubble, and they don’t have to be perfect every day. 

[00:04:10.200] 

If we are constantly having a high from sugar and then a crash, if we have low energy from lack of sleep, all of these things play a huge role in the health of our hormones

Some people thrive on the chaos, the busy, the hustle-bustle. And again, none of these are good or bad. It’s about creating  balance … It’s our responsibility to create a safe and loving environment for our body. 

[00:08:39.590] 

Then the last is creating a clean and nontoxic living environment. Do this by taking one step at a time to create a clean and wholesome environment for your body as possible.

Knowing your primary root cause can help you know the next step

start preparing one better meal a day. That is the right type of baby step. You’re not overwhelming yourself, but you’re moving the right direction. And it’s amazing how that little tiny step can have an impact on your hormones.
