What is PCOS?
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a hormonal disorder affecting 5-10% of childbearing women and is the most significant cause of infertility amongst women of all nationalities.
Symptoms vary greatly between women, but can include weight gain, acne, excessive hair growth, multiple ovarian cysts, and male pattern hair-loss.
More serious manifestations include: hyperinsulinemia, elevated triglycerides, and difficulty breathing. A strong correlation exists between obesity, type 2 diabetes, use of valproic acid (an antiepileptic medication), and increased risk for developing PCOS.
Further, there appears to be a strong genetic component to the development of PCOS.
How do you treat it?
Conventional treatments for PCOS are targeted to symptom management from oral retinoid for skin concerns, oral contraceptives, or insulin regulating drugs. However, the most effective treatment is always to address the root cause - this includes diet and lifestyle adjustments as well as supplementation with a few key nutrients that can improve outcomes.
The first is inositol. This member of the B vitamin family comes in two forms: myo-inositol and d-chiro- inositol (DCI).
A combination of these two forms was shown to significantly improve insulin sensitivity by cells, thus preventing blood glucose dysregulation.
This also had an impact on the regulation of a number of sex hormone levels. Further, oocyte and egg quality improved leading to improved fertility in women suffering from PCOS.
Folic acid has also been seen to be beneficial by providing antioxidant support from excess homocysteine. It also supports healthy brain, cardiovascular and genetic functioning. Advanced PCOS Relief contains the active form of folic acid to ensure that the body can use it properly, since it is common to have mutations in the mechanism that activates folic acid.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Plastics in our bodyOnly fairly recently we have become aware of the dangers of plastics in our environment.
For a long time we thought these plastics would not be of any concern to us. However, invariably, most plastics end up somewhere in the environment: they sit at the bottom of the sea, mix into beach sand, and blow in the wind. They’re also inside us.
It's possible that humans may be consuming anywhere from 39 to 52 thousand microplastic particles a year. With added estimates of how much microplastic might be inhaled, that number is more than 74 thousand.
People who drink only bottled water ingest an additional 90 thousand particles.
When researchers from Johns Hopkins looked at the impact of eating seafood contaminated with microplastics, they too found the accumulated plastic could damage the immune system and upset a gut's balance.
Scientists are scrambling to understand the dose at which microplastics start to have noticeable health effects. Like air pollution or harmful construction materials, those who have more exposure or pre-existing conditions may be less able to tolerate plastic.
How to reduce stress with ASMROur brain is programmed to stress us. It does that a lot and on just about any subject. Like a lot of behavioral reactions, stress used to be and still is a survival mechanism that our brain used in order to inject alertness when needed. It’s there so we could harness internal resources and spring into action in a matter of seconds when hunted or hunting.
Fortunately for us, we rarely need to spring into action nowadays to avoid a prowling lion. Today, stress is not helpful and is often counter-productive. When stressed, most of us lose focus and are immersed in unpleasant feelings.
In the past, we needed all that “potential energy” when we faced fight or flight situations. It probably saved our lives more than once. Today, this energy still exists in each of us in certain situations; if it is not discharged via some sort of conduit (either physical or of a more neural nature), it slows us down.
That’s why we need to get creative in the way we release stress. We don’t have time to go on a vacation every week; often we even can’t step away from the almighty computer, tablet, or cell phone.
How did menstruation become a taboo word?
Why don’t we call menstruation by its name but use expressions like 'auntie Flo comes for a visit'? Euphemisms serve a purpose. They give us words to talk about things that are considered culturally taboo.
Menstruation stigma is a form of misogyny. Negative taboos condition us to understand menstrual function as something to be hidden, something shameful. And by not naming a thing, we reinforce the idea that the thing should not be named.
But have periods always needed code words. Where did these words come from, and how did they come about? Were periods always considered a negative experience?
Menstrual euphemisms and taboos are old. But not all societies view menstruation negatively.
Menstrual taboos are found in the holy books like the Quran or the Bible"
“…in her menstrual impurity; she is unclean… whoever touches…shall be unclean and shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening” Leviticus 15
Taboos on menstruation may have existed before agriculture started or even before languages fully evolved.
