Dr. Felice Gersh is a globally renowned expert in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
Her passion for finding holistic treatments for this common endocrine disorder began with her own health. Dr. Gersh has PCOS and because the condition runs in families, many of the women who are nearest and dearest to her heart also have PCOS.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is not a reproductive disorder. It is a whole-body endocrine disorder that impacts a wide range of hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, melatonin, and cortisol. Menstrual irregularity and infertility are two common symptoms, but women with PCOS also have much higher rates of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, blood clotting disorders, endometrial cancer, sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression. Many women with PCOS also have hirsutism (dark hair growth on their face, chest, and back), alopecia (thinning scalp hair), and chronic acne.
For this complex, whole-body disorder, many women have simply prescribed birth control pills and, when they are ready to start a family, fertility treatments. This treatment protocol hides many PCOS symptoms but does nothing to address the root cause of PCOS.
To give women a path to true PCOS health, fertility, and vitality, Dr. Gersh wrote her groundbreaking bestseller, PCOS SOS, and her soon-to-be-released companion book, PCOS SOS Fertility Fast Track.
