Posted 02 January 2017 - 04:40 PM

Hi I've been diagnosed with PCOS      I have slightly high DHEAs (9-15), irregular periods (long) and annovation. I've taken Metformin and Clomid prescribed by my family doctor and gynaecologist. These medications have caused me to bleed heavily for months.        Can you please recommend an acupuncturist and herbalist in the Edmonton area that has expertise and a good track record in treating patients with PCOS and menstrual irregularities? Can you please offer some suggestions to help me combat these issues?   I feel disappointed with the treatment options that have been prescribed to me so far because the negative side effects of the drugs have worsened my health rather than helping me.
Thanks!

Cecil Horowitz's clinic can help you

And I have most women I see with PCOS to respond well to a combination of  Chinese medicine and fucntional medicine

 

Here is PCOS page on my clinic site.  If you are looking for hope and inspiration scroll  3/4 down to read a few stories shared by others with PCOShttp://acubalance.ca...-treatment/pcos

 

And my colleague Fiona McCulloch ND has published a book on this topic that I highly recommend

 

Good luck.

Monica Patt is an acupuncturist who is located in downtown Edmonton (free parking at the back). I have been going to her for three months and would highly recommend her.
