Acupuncture for PCOS
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormone imbalance of female sex hormones, such as too little estrogen, and too many androgen hormones. PCOS causes a disruption in regular menstrual cycles, increased risk of endometrial cancer, infertility, increased growth of facial hair, decreased breast size, and deepening of the voice. Needless to say, PCOS is a discomforting and distressing illness that affects about 10 percent of the female population.
Yet research found that acupuncture in combination with exercise helped regulate hormone levels and menstrual patterns in women with PCOS. The acupuncture needles were stimulated with a low frequency electrical current, which acts as muscle work, thus relieving symptoms and restoring hormone balance.PC
