Early detection
Don't let PCOS symptoms go unchecked. Early detection and treatment can make a huge difference in managing the condition. Make sure to keep an eye out for signs such as irregular periods, weight gain, and acne, and don't be afraid to speak with a doctor about your concerns.

Major cause of PCOS
Understanding this concept can make such a massive difference in helping you to take control of your PCOS. And that's the fact that PCOS doesn't start with your hormones. Hormonal imbalances are a symptom of a number of possible underlying drivers, they are not the root driver. Let me explain.. Although PCOS is largely known as a hormonal condition, which is still the easiest way to refer to it, and, makes sense as hormonal imbalances are driving the majority of symptoms. Your hormones aren't going haywire for no reason. Let's look at this more closely. ⚠️ Firstly, for the majority, the core trigger of hormonal imbalances is being driven by insulin resistance, which is actually an underlying metabolic disorder. This triggers hormonal issues such as high insulin, high testosterone, low progesterone etc. that then drive your PCOS symptoms. ⚠️ Chronic low-grade inflammation is another common trigger. This is obviously an inflammatory issue but, once again, can trigger the same core PCOS hormonal issues. ⚠️ Again, adrenal dysfunction, whether it's an issue with the HPA axis, systematic stress, or dysregulated secretion of adrenal hormones triggers the hormonal issues that are "PCOS". Why is it important to know this? because what we're talking about here is the ROOT CAUSE, which of course, should be the core focus of your PCOS plan. When you do this, you're setting yourself up for success!! this will give you the absolute best chance possible to take control of your PCOS for good!

Vitamin D sources
We know Vitamin D is so important for PCOS and insulin resistance, but how do you get it?​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ While you can take a supplement (which is great if needed) exposure to direct sunlight and some foods can help increase your levels as well!​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ First, try getting some good old sunshine. Try getting about 20-30 mins of sunlight every day.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ During the winter months when it is hard to get adequate sunlight, it is important to make sure you are supplementing with vitamin D. Also, the use of sunscreen can also affect the amount of vitamin D that is absorbed.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ You can also get vitamin D from some foods like fatty fish and vitamin D fortified foods like milk, cereals, and orange juice. Lastly, you can get vitamin D from supplements.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ Make sure to talk with your doctor about testing your Vitamin D levels and if supplementation is a good option for you!​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​ Which one of these are you going to incorporate into your week?​​​​​​​​
