Description

The bestselling guide to this increasingly common womens' health concern.

Although one in ten women in the UK suffer from polycistic ovary syndrome (PCOS), with a myriad of symptoms and the problem that many doctors do not recognise this condition - sufferers often experience an uphill battle for diagnosis and help.

This is the first book to tackle the issue of PCOS. Written by a sufferer, this book offers essential advice on dealing with this gynaecological disorder which can effect everything from weight to infertility and therefore impacts on a woman's sense of self.

The book will look at how PCOS effects the body, but above all it will offer an essential self help plan for dealing with the condition. PCOS will include a 4-point wellness plan, an A-Z of symptoms and associated remedies and a section on self esteem and rebuilding your life.

As well as the common symptoms of weight gain, excess body hair, acne, breast pain, dizziness, chronic fatigue and hair loss, sufferers from PCOS can experience associated health risks including a higher risk of miscarriage, heart disease, diabetes but infertility is still their largest worry.

Colette Harris has put together a valuable self help regime - which looks at both conventional and complementary medicine. The 4 step plan will focus on diet, exercise, supplementation and relaxation.
