What Is PCOS + What Are You Feeding Yours + The Modern Doula PCOS Grocery List

7:50 PM

Part of my very amazing and rewarding job is to help women with their wellness - including womb wellness. One of the many things that I see and help women cope and heal on a regular basis is PCOS. 

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine system disorder among women. Women with PCOS may have enlarged ovaries that contain small collections of fluid called follicles and are located in each ovary and can be detected with an ultrasound exam



Some of the most common signs of PCOS include lacking or a sporadic menstrual cycle, pain in the abdomen like your pelvis or ovaries, and acne - just to name a few. 

I may be beginning to repeat myself quite often when it comes to this subject (ya know, just like to reiterate a bit) but when it comes to optimal womb health and wellness your nutrition and diet are very important. Something as difficult as PCOS can began to heal gradually with a very clean and intentional diet. 

So, let me ask you this question: what are you feeding your womb? 

A balanced diet contain greens, grains, fruits, supplements, and more. And when dealing with something like PCOS, it is very vital to make sure that these things are present (organic and GMO free, too!). I decided to give you a quick and simple grocery list that is similar to the moer in depth one that I suggest to my clients and that you can utilize whether you are working to heal from womb ailments such as PCOS or just to give your wellness a bit of TLC.
