PCOS not only effects the health of reproductive organs, but the presence of excess toxic sludge builds up in the liver, which must be cleared to restore proper hormone elimination. PCOS can be a multi-level condition. At Triad Health Center, we look deep into your health history to find exposures of various toxins that may be contributing to your condition. We also take into account all contributing factors, including insulin resistance, androgen dominance, hypertension, high cholesterol and triglycerides, estrogen dominance, and low thyroid, all of which play a role in the vicious cycle that is PCOS. A complete hormone panel and heavy metal testing are some of the non-invasive tests that we run to conclude hormone imbalances and how to completely restore proper hormone function in the body. Other specific tests may be conducted based on your individual need.
Once we have a clear picture of what is fueling the PCOS cycle in your body, we will customize a plan of action to begin healing your body right away. Some testing that may be needed.
