For the premiere episode of season 2, Michelle and Brittany wanted to highlight a disorder that affects 1 in 10 women: polycystic ovarian syndrome, otherwise referred to as PCOS. Chances are, you or someone you know may suffer from PCOS and not even know it. In fact, our very own Brittany has been struggling with this for over 12 years. From hormonal imbalance, infertility issues and depression, this disorder affects a woman’s body at such a huge level.
Brittany had the honour of speaking to Andrea Bomo, founder and owner of Ann & Eli Apothecary (and fellow cyster) about all things PCOS. Andrea was able to reverse her symptoms of PCOS and have 2 successful pregnancies after being told she would never be able to have children. She has developed herb formulas to help with things such as PCOS, painful periods, fibroids and much more. Through her own personal journey with learning to heal her body naturally, she has devoted her life to helping others do the same. We discussed our own journeys with diagnosis, as well as the importance of diet, herbs, and stress reduction in the fight to reverse PCOS symptoms.
Make sure you listen till the end, where we announce a special giveaway!
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with PCOS or has experienced hormonal issues, make sure to give this episode a listen.
