PCOS impacts many women around the world; for this reason we called on TCM Dr. Lauren Curtain to define PCOS from an eastern and western perspective. In this episode, Lauren outlines the varying patterns of PCOS and she also covers how many women may experience PCO, rather than PCOS. Didn’t realise there was a difference? We discuss how to determine which case you may have. Also discussed in this episode is: > the role dampness has to play in regards to PCOS> key contributing factors that may be aggravating your PCOS > how diet can impact PCOS We wrapped up the episode with a discussion on why so many women are being diagnosed with PCOS (from Lauren’s perspective) and whether or not PCOS will stay with you for life.
