If you have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), you have chronic body-wide inflammation. Recently, I spoke with Dr. Felice Gersh, M.D., a leading expert on the subject. Dr. Gersh is one of the top integrative gynecologists in the United States and an expert in the field of PCOS. Her philosophy involves looking at a patient’s whole being in order to help them achieve optimal health. She believes that doctors don’t heal people; they merely help patients resource their own healing abilities and find the right balance in their bodies, ideally through the right mix of exercise, nutrition and lifestyle. In our recent interview, she delivered cutting edge information about PCOS and its causes as well as practical advice on how to begin healing.
Listen and you will learn:
- How gut inflammation is the root of many of your toughest PCOS symptoms
- The 5 steps you need to take today to reduce inflammation
- How to protect your children from PCOS starting even before birth
- Whether a hysterectomy will cure your PCOS
- How to monitor your inflammation levels
Dr. Gersh is one of only a small number of fellowship trained integrative gynecologists in the nation. She blends the best of the world of natural and holistic medicine with state of the art functional and allopathic medical treatment. Because of her extensive knowledge of the complex inter-relationships of the body’s organs, she recognizes the need to investigate all aspects of health, always working to re-establish a healthy gastrointestinal tract, adequate sleep, good mood, great nutrition, high energy, and balanced hormones.
Expert in all areas of women’s health, and particularly of gynecological and reproductive matters, Dr. Gersh deals in an integrative manner with such uniquely female issues as polycystic ovary disease (PCOS).
She is currently writing a book on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and writing a chapter on the same topic for a medical textbook.
