Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age, is characterized by hyperandrogenism, oligo/amenorrhea, and polycystic ovaries.

Women with PCOS are at greater risk for:

  • Infertility
  • miscarriage
  • endometrial cancers
  • heart disease and heart attacks
  • type II diabetes
  • strokes

Here’s a randomized study done showing the positive effects of Acupuncture, and especially acupuncture and exercise on PCOS. At Glow, we recommend acupuncture 1-2 times per week for 16 weeks, plus dietary and supplement support for our PCOS patients. We find this protocol to be very effective and a great adjunct for those women taking Clomid or undergoing IVF.

they can simultaneously damage the systems within the body during and after
treatment. This discussion will cover helpful tips on rebuilding the body’s
vital energy (Qi) and creating an internal environment that promotes healthy

Discussion topics:
– Basic theories of East Asian medicine

Managing Chronic Illness — Tuesday, Aug. 23rd, 6-7 PM, **FREE**
Facilitated by Tina Michalski, MSW

Any chronic illness means that the individual will make some adjustments in their life, which may include adjustment to physical limitations, as well as changes in our thoughts, beliefs, emotions and behavior, in response to the illness.

Group and individual therapy can help restructure our thinking processes to more realistic and helpful thoughts, which can help to  effectively manage the stress of the illness, as well as the anxiety and depression that can manifest. Counseling also means that you are more likely to follow the treatment plans and recommendations of your medical providers, and have better physical health.
