Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome & Hormonal Imbalance

Posted by Sylvia (Thompson, MB, Canada) on 07/04/2013

Hello, I have been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome and hormonal imbalance, after a long struggle and many different chemical prescriptions I found nothing was helping and the chemical intake was in my opinion very unhealthy so I decided to take the natural holistic path and researched natural sources for a natural cure for P.C.O.S. now I am taking Vitamin B HI POTENCY complex, Multivitamin, Zinc, Calcium Magnesium, Flax Oil, Co Enzyme Q10, Chromium, and herbs such as Milk Thistle and Saw Palmetto. Since I have been taking these supplements it's been only about 2 weeks, I'm feeling nauseated. I have a slight feeling I am taking these in the wrong order during the day, I was wondering what would be the proper order to take these supplements without them aggravating one another or creating any kind of conflict in my body.

Dear Sylvia: Most nauseation is actually due to accumulating influences of certain mineral supplements, and the fact that many of them should not be taken everyday.

It would be more reasonable to get some feel of what mineral is proper for you by doing a hair mineral analysis instead of assuming, if at all possible.

Basically, zinc assuming it is zinc gluconate 50 mg, being at least the common ones here locally, that should be taken about once a week. In my own experience I do see some who need to take it only once every 2 week. But once everyday the body simply cannot handle it.

Vitamin B complex is a water soluble vitamin and usually have no problems taken everyday.

Calcium-Magnesium, most of the problems I encountered is too much calcium. This is often seen in hair mineral analysis where the Ca:Mg ratios is too high. Therefore taken magnesium supplements alone should be safer. However, even for magnesium, depending on the dose, assuming that to be around 250 mg of magnesium citrate (or magnesium gluconate), for example, at least 2-3 times a week dose is sufficient.

Flaxseed oil, the freshness of oil is critical. If the oil is stale, becomes like a glue and no longer liquid, the oil is not good and they do cause nausea. Most oils the body have limited capacity in dealing with, so taken twice to three times a week to be sufficient assuming the dose is between around 500-1000 mg.

As to CoQ10, Chromium, and Milk Thistle, those won't cause a problem. One interesting thing about chromium sold in the market is the dose is quite often too low and as a result taking everyday showed no adverse side effect.

Saw Palmetto is an unusual one for you because those are related more in line with male hormones. While woman do need it sometime, only a doctor would know that. Assuming that is low, the best times to take it is usually before bedtime.

The remedy for polycystic ovarian syndrome and hormonal imbalance usually is iodine, in the form of sodium/potassium iodide about 5/mg day, or kelp supplements taken twice a day, assuming 250 mg/each. The other is to get the body alkaline enough and reduce the calcium buildup, usually taking, 2 times a day 8 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water. Another possible remedy is 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. Usually the buildup of plaque and calcium is what causes these problem, besides the issue of fungus buildup that tends to occur frequently in glandular functions, which by the way chlorella supplements once a day, should do the job better in ridding the excess heavy metals which common whenever the fungus his high causing the body to develop mass fibrosis, for example. Drinking 1/4 teaspoon sea salt in 1 liter of water as a drinking water will also alkalize and cleanse the glandular system, as well as adding so many micromineral the body needs more.

I have observed with polycystic condition usually have high calcium and low iodine at the very least. Molybdenum in some people are nonexistent. The molybdenum I prefer is sodium molybdate, anywhere between 1- 25 mg should be more than sufficient.
