PCOS, Fibroids, Endometriosis
I have studied gut health and its influence over the endocrine system and hormone signalling for your PCOS. Especially with regard to insulin processing and insulin resistance. Certainly for PCOS, insulin resistance can be the primary driver.
The gut microbiome’s influence over insulin signaling and leptin and ghrelin feedback and control greatly contribute to this. The gut microbiome also plays a vital role in the body’s ability to clear unwanted oestrogen metabolites.
Gut dysbiosis can contribute to Beta glucuronidase activity and enterohepatic recirculation of active oestrogen which increases the oestrogen pool. Oestrogen dominance is the primary driver of conditions such as endometriosis and fibroids so addressing gut health as number one priority is always the best strategy.
Any condition where hormones are involved should be firstly be addressed by restoring the health of the microbiome. Contact me about a microbiome test and a personalised probiotic for you.
