Pelvic pain, fatigue, weight gain, acne, hair loss, risk of diabetes, and difficulty getting pregnant - polycystic ovary syndrome can affect every aspect of your life.

As if the daily demands of life weren’t enough, trying to manage PCOS symptoms on top of everything else can be overwhelming.

And when you consider that many of the medications given to control PCOS, such as birth control or diabetes drugs, can come with unpleasant side effects, this just adds to the stress of trying to deal with this condition.

Fortunately, there are time tested, natural solutions to PCOS, available right here in Orange County!

Whether you are looking to treat the side effects of PCOS medication, looking for alternatives to medication altogether, or trying to get pregnant with PCOS, acupuncture and botanical medicine can significantly improve your quality of life. They can keep periods regular, ease menstrual pain from PCOS, and increase the odds of a successful pregnancy.


Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that causes small sacs of fluid called cysts to develop along the outer edges of the ovaries.

These cysts can be painful, and in addition to pain, PCOS often has symptoms such as irregular periods or the absence of periods, excessive hair growth on the face and body, hair loss on the head, acne, obesity, and infertility. Patients with PCOS are also more likely to develop diabetes and high cholesterol.

PCOS is commonly treated with birth control pills to regulate periods, diabetes medication to manage blood sugar levels, hormones to help with fertility, and statins to treat high cholesterol.

Unfortunately, many of these medications can come with side effects, such as bleeding, weight gain, nausea, digestive problems, migraines, and mood changes.

Even with medication, many women with PCOS continue to suffer from pain, struggle with weight gain, or may have issues with fertility.

If that’s the case for you or someone you love, acupuncture and botanical medicine may be the natural solutions you need to improve your quality of life.


East Asian Medicine has been treating women’s health conditions for thousands of years, helping to regulate menstruation, promote fertility, ensure health pregnancies, and assist with menopausal symptoms.

The main tools of East Asian Medicine for women’s health are acupuncture and botanical medicine. These techniques not only have thousands of years of tradition, but now also decades of modern scientific research backing their use.

Most people know that acupuncture is very effective at treating pain, but they may not realize it actually regulates physiology of the entire body, meaning acupuncture is used to treat neurological, digestive, immune, and hormonal issues.

There is a large and growing body of scientific literature showing that both acupuncture and botanical medicine regulate hormone levels and improves ovarian function.

In the case of PCOS, research demonstrates several benefits of acupuncture and botanic medicine treatment:

·       Regulating hormone levels

·       Promoting ovulation

·       Reducing insulin resistance

·       Improving moods and emotional balance

This means no more period pain or irregular periods, and more energy, stable moods, balanced hormones, and improved fertility!
