Natural Remedies for Polycystic Ovaries

I was recently diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Are there any supplements or herbs I should be taking?
Santa Fe, New Mexico

Willard responds: The exact cause of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is not known, but there is a growing body of evidence that Syndrome X (or insulin resistance) is dramatically linked. PCOS is becoming an increasingly common problem, affecting an estimated 6 to 10 percent of women of reproductive age. This percentage seems to have kept pace with increases in the overall population’s issues with sugar metabolism.

PCOS symptoms are varied and include menstrual irregularities, infertility, increased male pattern hair growth, male pattern baldness or thinning hair, acne, oily skin, dandruff, pelvic pain, weight gain, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, skin tags, sleep apnea, snoring and darkened skin patches.

From a holistic point of view, treating PCOS is a combination of several therapies. These include addressing several aspects: the underlying hormonal imbalance; Syndrome X’s insulin resistance; usually an associated imbalance in essential fatty acids; and often a candida yeast problem.
