I am feeling much better since my last post, I am sorry if I scared anyone with my language!
It was such a frustrating and scary thing to be told that you have PCOS, and there is no real ‘fix’. It sucks. Big time but hey! Life goes on, and there are definitely people out there suffering from far worse things, so I sucked it up pretty quickly.
I have been told that is a very common thing to be diagnosed with! Most of the people I have spoke to have it or knows someone that is suffering from it. Each one has their own success story (eventually) after several thousand dollars of treatments such as IVF, using chemical treatments involving Clomid and Metaformin- with varying sick side effects.
I want this to be my absolute last resort. Everyone wants that quick fix whether is a weight loss pill or a cancer drug or an iron supplement. Why can’t a doctor ask why we are suffering from these problems and delve into the underlying issues!
Here is where I am a bit different. The first thing I did was book an appointment to see a herbalist. As I live in a remote mining town 1600 kilometers from the nearest city, It was hard for me to find one, but I did!
I completed a health survey to start with on the Herb Factory website, and followed up with a few emails to Debbie, the owner, herbalist and asbestos poisoning survivor!
We had our first appointment via telephone on Saturday and I am really pleased with the plan I have come out with.
Debra is located in Mullaloo, Perth- she knows her herbal stuff. She has been battling with her own sickness, taking control of her situation by the balls (so to speak) completely healing herself with natural therapies.
I have ordered a few of her tonics- a hormone refresher and an anti-d formula.
Before I start that, hopefully on Wednesday, I have got an essential oil blend to help my body to just chill the eff out.
All of the following ingredients are readily available from your local chemist.
-Chill Out Mix with Vix-
50ml Olive, Sweet Almond or Coconut oil
20 drops Clary Sage esssential oil
20 drops Lavender essential oil
20 drops Rose Geranium essential oil
Combine thoroughly and rub on the stomach nightly.
Clary sage is good for: stimulating estrogen production, premenstrual symptoms, digestion issues, also helps with nervous tension and fear.
Lavender is good for: aiding in relaxation, and nervous tension.
Rose Geranium is used for: assisting the nervous system, detoxing and woth premenstrual symptoms.
I definitely recommend having a squiz at Debra’s website- she has a lot of great information to share! You can find her by clicking here: http://www.herbfactory.com.au
