My sister just found out that she has the polycystic ovary syndrome and she’s basically numbed. As a matter of fact this condition affects 5 million women in the U.S. and it doesn’t have a known cure. However, some women manage this condition with medication and hormone therapy, but other women, such as my sister, try to avoid chemicals and use traditional and natural treatments. Of course, before trying any treatment option, she discussed it with the currant doctor about the diagnosis and elaborated a natural plan for her. Regarding my sister’s PCOS, the below list helped her in managing this condition.
She start taking vitamins and minerals…
Magnesium is important for blood sugar control and to overcome insulin resistance. On the other hand, vitamin D is essential for optimum reproductive system functioning in women. It plays key roles in various ovarian processes and also affects glucose homeostasis. In women with PCOS, about 65-85% of them suffer from a vitamin D deficiency.
…and introduced Primrose Oil and Royal Jelly into her breakfast routine…

After taking the tablet, you can take one teaspoon of Royal Jelly which is similar to honey. It delicious and you can replace peanut butter with Royal Jelly.
