Thankfully, smokers are a dime a dozen. Another five years later, researchers put 44 smokers on turmeric curcumin supplements alone for a month, and measured changes in their colorectal aberrant crypt foci, which may act like precursors to polyps—which are the precursors to cancer. And, we can see after just one month, there was a significant drop in the number of these aberrant crypt foci in the high-dose supplement group, but no change in the low-dose group, with no dose-limiting side effects—although “the stools in [the] participants [did] turn…yellow.”
Hi Tracy, thanks for the article, you break it down really well. PCOS has been the bane of my life, especially the acne that came with it. I was diagnosed with PCOS 10 years ago & I must say my experience with treating it naturally has been trial & error. I’m slender, fertile, exercise, follow a paleo diet & still have acne. I take chinese supplements (jia wei xia yao san) which has the Peony & Licorice formula & truly helps keeping me on a regular cycle & happy. Recently I added Gui Zhi Fu Ling Wan, which is popular for PCOS treatment, as it helps with diminishing the cysts on ovaries. So my hope is by having the regular cycle & getting rid of these nasty cysts on my ovaries, then I figure my acne would have to get better…I’m also doing your candida cleanse, so I leave no stone unturned!
I’m intrigued about this Symplex F. I’ve never heard of it, so I’ve read a bit about it & it makes sense why they use it for PCOS. I’d love to hear from anyone who has used it & what was the outcome. Thanks Tracy!
I’m 25 and I haven’t had my menstrual cycle in about 4 months. So I went to my doctor yesterday who did some labs and the only abnormality was my testosterone level which was low at a 28. I had no idea. I’ve been experiencing extreme fatigue, difficulty with weight loss, depression and no libido. Knock on wood I don’t also get the hair loss.
My doctor didn’t really say anything about it other then giving me a pill to try for 7 days to see if I get my menstrual cycle.
Should I be worried? What should I do?
Someone mentioned protein, does that help?
