Faye was in her late twenties, slim, tall, feminine, energetic. She didn’t fit the typical PCOS profile of carrying extra weight, struggling with excessive hair growth & fatigue. A few months before she came to see me however, she was checked out by her gynecologist because of ongoing severe abdominal pain. The diagnosis: several cysts on her right ovary…. PCOS. She was sent home without much information or treatment and felt devastated. Would she never be able to have children? If only she had known then, that all it took was a homeopathic detox of the contraceptive pill to restore her fertility!
This past year I’ve been writing more frequently about PCOS and sadly this is the case because I see more women diagnosed with polycystic ovaries in my clinic. The great news, however, is that I am also writing so much about it because I see incredible success in treating PCOS with homeopathy!
In my experience, one type of PCOS especially has a good prognosis. It is the type where there is a clear connection between the development of cysts and long term use of the contraceptive pill. Interestingly enough, it is in these cases that the women usually do not fit with the typical profile of PCOS patients. In those cases a relatively simple homeopathic detox can do wonders, especially when the PCOS symptoms have not been around that long.
This was the case for Faye. Ironically I am seeing more and more young women with PCOS. They all have in common that they have been on contraception since their teens. Faye also started on a combination pill at age 17 because of acne, and stayed on it ever since.
At age 28 she started to get acne again, so her gynecologist switched her to a lighter pill. Not long after that, a sharp pulsating pain developed in the right side of her abdomen. When she went back to her doctor, he gave her a pelvic scan and diagnosed her with PCOS. All she was told was to stay on the pill and come back for fertility treatment when she was ready to have kids.
She was told to stay on the pill and come back for fertility treatment when she was ready to have kids.
Adamant to get better instead, she decided to stop the pill completely and research PCOS online. A cleaned up diet improved her pain a little but it returned with a vengeance. When it had been four months since her last period, she decided to come and see me.
Contraceptive pill detox
Faye had a very happy childhood and teenage years and didn’t connect at all with the emotional root of PCOS that I also often see in PCOS cases as well. Based on the fact that she also just had cysts and none of the other common PCOS symptoms, I suspected that her cysts were a direct result of years and years of the contraceptive pill suppressing ovulation. Stopping the pill was the best she could have done, and if her body had managed to pick up ovulation again, the cysts would likely have disappeared. However, her body was stuck in non-ovulation mode, and so she had no period and the cysts remained.
I started her on a two month contraceptive pill detox with homeopathic remedies as well as the remedy Platina that suited her and right-sided ovarian pain well. Within one week on the detox, she had a period! It was healthy 5 day, bright red period without cramping, and the sharp ovarian pain quickly started to reduce.
That period started a 75 day cycle, followed by 55, 50, 42 and then settled at about 40 days after 5 months of treatment. Her hormonal balance improved by the month as she was getting healthy fertile cervical mucus and started to ovulate regularly again. More importantly, the ovarian pain is now virtually gone and she barely thinks of it. The occasional times she does feel it, it is very mild and short lived.
If you also have used the contraceptive pill, hormonal coil, or birth control shots (like depo provera) in the past, then you would benefit from a homeopathic detox whether you have been diagnosed with PCOS, have PCOS symptoms or suffer with other symptoms that indicate hormonal imbalance.
I would love to speak with you about your case in a discovery call to discuss how a detox can restore your fertility as well.
