I had PCOS for 6 years. When I was 19 the doctor told me I'd never be able to have kids naturally, and I was on birth control for the next 4 years, until I got so sick of their side effects (depression, anxiety, more) that I quit. I hated my broken body, felt worthless and lost all hope of ever having a family or normal life. After almost 2 years of no periods and trying every diet and program out there to heal PCOS, I found Alisa's TED talks and quickly ordered her book. Within a month of doing the diet and cutting the chemicals out of my life, my period actually came back!!
4 months of healthy periods later, my husband and I conceived a healthy baby, a miracle! My hormones balanced and got normal periods after breastfeeding, and now we're expecting our second!
You really have so much control over your own health. It comes down to how you're nourishing your body from the inside out. The book outlines a simple, practical way to clean up your diet/lifestyle, and allow your hormones to heal themselves naturally. Every woman should have access to this information and the empowerment it brings. To be able to heal yourself naturally (and not be dependent on the damaging drugs that only mask the problem) is so freeing, and I wish I had access to this information years ago.
Probably 5% of the book has important information, but I honestly cannot count how many times she repeated "pcos, infertility, low libido" phrase. It's on every other page! PCOS, infertility, libido. One more time, in case you already forgot. PCOS, infertility, libido.
From the first chapter I had a feeling I was watching one of these TV shows, where a host tells you "Do you want to be healthy?" - "Yeas we want!" - "Do you want to improve your fertility?!" - "Yes we want" - "Soon I'm gonna tell you how to improve your libido!!!!" - "In the previous chapter you've read that using my protocol you can improve your fertility, get rid of PCOS and improve your libido!!!!" - "Yeaaaah!"....
I mean it, it was very annoying.
I found this book to be a good start for further research. For example the author claims we shouldn't use toothpaste with sls in it (and if you proceed to her site and open market section, you'll find there Tom's of main, a toothpaste with sls!). She explains well why we need to stabilize blood sugar level, and I would say it works. Also she gives lists of food you should eat during different phases of your cycle, but she gives no explanation on why I should eat celery for example, or lamb instead of beef. I understand why I should consume more fibers or reduce dairy, but why celery and strawberries? I would expect to have this info in the book.
