How Does TCM Define PCOS?
Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the human, not the condition. What that means is that the diagnosis "PCOS" is made up of several different patterns of disharmony. This means there is no one size fits all treatment approach. Caitria will outline commonly associated patterns. When you understand the root cause, you can start to truly heal.
Going Beyond the Rx...
If you are prescribed hormonal birth control or Metformin for PCOS - this one is for you. Don't worry!
