Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS affects as many as 10% of women in Ireland.   PCOS is caused by an imbalance of hormones which can lead to small benign cysts on the ovaries.  The good news is that there are many dietary strategies which can help manage the symptoms and the latest research shows certain nutritional supplements may be beneficial also.

Ellen has helped many clients referred by GPs and specialists to lose weight, improve their PCOS symptoms (such as feeling less tired and reducing sugar cravings), improve their insulin resistance and to reduce their risk of long term health problems such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Find out about evidenced based nutrition advice specifically for PCOS; what foods to eat, which to avoid etc. In May 2013, Ellen completed extensive research and studies regarding nutritional supplements for PCOS, which significantly help aid weight loss, excess hair, fertility, cholesterol etc.

At Nutri Vive, we know how confusing PCOS can be, especially when it comes to understanding the specifics of nutrition advice.  We also know all about the challenges that often go hand in hand with PCOS such as blood sugar crashes, migranes, low energy and sometimes fertility issues.  So if you need some special help losing weight or managing your PCOS a little better, we are here to help.  Ellen has attended many conferences regarding optimal nutritional therapy for PCOS and would like to share her knowledge with you.  We can also advise you of specific evidence based PCOS supplements which would help with hormone levels, cholesterol levels, fertility etc. Sometimes we know what we “should” be doing but struggle to put things into practice and the Dietitian can assist with the practical organisation and meal planning tips to help you in the early stages of making lifestyle improvements also.
