That depends on who you ask. If you ask a medical doctor, gynecologist or endocrinologist, the answer will be yes or possibly a drug called spironolactone and Accutane for the acne. If you ask a naturopathic doctor, the answer will be “not by a long shot!”. There are numerous natural treatments for PCOS that can not only ease the symptoms, but also address the underlying cause of the condition and build up your body at the same time. Why the disparity in answers? Because Medical Doctors are not trained in and have little or no knowledge of naturopathic medicine. If you are looking for an alternative to drugs for PCOS, the best person to ask is not the person who is only trained in the drugs. It’s like asking your mechanic “what is the best dog food?” He or she may offer up an opinion on what to feed Rover, but it’s not coming from an expert on the subject. The best person to consult regarding natural remedies or alternatives to drugs for PCOS is a licensed naturopathic doctor who specializes in women’s health and PCOS.
