Effective Natural Remedies for Managing PCOS

| Modified on Nov 25, 2023

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder affecting many women of reproductive age. While medical treatments are available, many are turning to natural remedies for a holistic approach to managing PCOS symptoms. This article delves into various natural strategies that can help.

Understanding Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, widely known as PCOS, is a prevalent hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. This condition is often characterized by a combination of symptoms rather than just the presence of ovarian cysts, which, contrary to the name, are not a definitive feature for all affected individuals.

The hallmark symptoms of PCOS include irregular menstrual cycles, which can range from infrequent periods to prolonged cycles, and signs of high androgen levels such as excessive hair growth (hirsutism), severe acne, and male-pattern baldness. Additionally, many women with PCOS struggle with obesity, although PCOS can affect women of all body types.

The exact cause of PCOS remains elusive, but several factors appear to play a significant role in its development:

  1. Insulin Resistance: A significant number of women with PCOS have insulin resistance, leading to elevated insulin levels that may increase androgen production, contributing to difficulties with ovulation.
  2. Low-grade Inflammation: Research indicates that women with PCOS often have a type of low-grade inflammation that stimulates the ovaries to produce androgens, which can lead to heart and blood vessel problems.
  3. Genetic Links: PCOS seems to run in families, suggesting a hereditary predisposition.
  4. Abnormal Fetal Development: Some studies suggest that excessive exposure to male hormones (androgens) in the womb may affect the development of female fetuses, potentially leading to PCOS in later life.

Understanding these factors is crucial in managing and treating PCOS, which focuses on symptom relief and prevention of long-term complications, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Chaste Tree Berry: A Natural Ally in PCOS Management

Chaste tree berry, scientifically known as Vitex agnus-castus, has been recognized in herbal medicine for its potential benefits in balancing hormonal levels, particularly in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). This natural remedy is often used to address some of the key hormonal imbalances associated with PCOS.

How Chaste Tree Berry Works

Chaste tree berry primarily influences the pituitary gland, which is responsible for hormone production and regulation. Its active components are believed to:

  • Regulate the Menstrual Cycle: By promoting the balance of the luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), chaste tree berry can help normalize irregular menstrual cycles, a common symptom of PCOS.
  • Reduce Androgen Levels: It may help in lowering elevated levels of male hormones (androgens), which are often a concern in PCOS, thereby potentially reducing symptoms like hirsutism (excessive hair growth) and acne.
  • Support Ovulation: For those struggling with fertility issues due to PCOS, chaste tree berry might aid in regularizing ovulation, enhancing fertility prospects.

Usage and Considerations

Chaste tree berry is available in various forms, including capsules, tinctures, and liquid extracts. The dosage and form will depend on individual needs and should be discussed with a healthcare provider, especially for those who are pregnant, nursing, or have hormone-sensitive conditions.

Precautions and Side Effects

While chaste tree berry is generally considered safe, it may cause minor side effects like nausea, headache, or digestive disturbances. Importantly, it should not be used in conjunction with hormone medications, including birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy, without a doctor’s approval, as it can interfere with their effectiveness.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is gaining popularity as a natural remedy for various health issues, including Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). This simple yet potent vinegar is made from fermented apple juice and is known for its potential health benefits, particularly for those managing PCOS.

Potential Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for PCOS

  • Improving Insulin Sensitivity: One of the critical aspects of managing PCOS is controlling insulin levels. ACV has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, which can be beneficial for those with insulin-resistant PCOS.
  • Aiding Weight Loss: Many women with PCOS struggle with weight management. ACV can promote a feeling of fullness, potentially reducing calorie intake and assisting in gradual weight loss, which is often recommended for PCOS management.
  • Regulating Menstrual Cycles: Some studies suggest that regular consumption of ACV can help in regulating menstrual cycles, a common issue for women with PCOS.

How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar can be incorporated into the diet in various ways:

As a Drink: Mix 1-2 tablespoons of ACV in a large glass of water. Drinking this before meals can aid digestion and blood sugar control.

Diet and Nutrition

  1. Low Glycemic Index Diet: Foods with a low glycemic index (GI) can stabilize blood sugar levels, which is crucial in managing PCOS. Include whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables in your diet.
  2. Anti-inflammatory Foods: Chronic inflammation can exacerbate PCOS symptoms. Incorporating anti-inflammatory foods like turmeric, berries, fatty fish, and leafy greens can be beneficial.

Herbal Supplements

  1. Inositol: Often recommended for PCOS, inositol can improve insulin sensitivity and ovulation.
  2. Cinnamon: Known for its ability to regulate menstruation and improve insulin resistance, cinnamon is a favorable supplement for PCOS management.
  3. Spearmint Tea: Studies suggest spearmint tea can help reduce androgen levels, alleviating symptoms like excessive hair growth.

Lifestyle Modifications

  1. Regular Exercise: Regular physical activity helps in weight management and improves insulin resistance, both crucial for PCOS management.
  2. Stress Management: Stress can worsen PCOS symptoms. Practices like yoga, meditation, and mindfulness can help manage stress.
  3. Adequate Sleep: Quality sleep is vital for hormonal balance. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

Alternative Therapies

  1. Acupuncture: Some studies suggest that acupuncture can help regulate menstrual cycles and improve fertility in women with PCOS.
  2. Homeopathy: While more research is needed, some homeopathic remedies might relieve PCOS symptoms.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition that affects as many as 1 in every 10 women. The symptoms of the condition can be debilitating if left untreated. However, minimal dietary and lifestyle changes and natural supplements can often help alleviate PCOS symptoms.

I want to share a miraculous remedy for delayed periods. In times of anxiety my period just disappears (once for whole 6 months)and this is not good. My doctor gave some pills in order to ovulate, but I just like the natural way better.. A friend of mine, is like a natural remedie expert, and gave me the follow remedy:
-Smashed Fresh aloe vera leaves (the gel inside)
-Honey (enough)
-Liquor or vodka (2 tbs)
Mix the above ingredients until you have something like a syrup.
Drink just a half glass of it, and in 4 days maximum your period will come. You can drink this mixture once a month in order to regulate your period. It works every time.

Hello Joy from Athens, Greece, I am trying to understand about the Aloe Vera Leaves... Am I suppose to just take the gel from the leaves and mix with honey and vodka or do I smash the entire leaf with the gel and mix with everything?

I am 30 years old and diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome when 21. Never on pills but had cycles every three months. I started taking apple cider vinegar last year for cold and sore throat. I realised that my periods had come fairly regularly compared to my history. So I started taking it regularly. After adjusting the qty and dosage for a few months I found that taking a half tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar with half tbsp honey in warm water just before bed suited me the best. I am very glad that I have had 10 cycles in 10 months. My suggestion is natural route does work. We need to be patient and find what works as a few herbs or supplements may not work for all. It's a great feeling to finally be normal with regular cycle.

Hi everyone, I'm 40 and was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 27 which was the time my cycles started going haywire. About 2 months ago I began taking ACV with the mother by using empty gel capsules 2 times daily which totaled to be 4 tablespoons. I was so amazed because my monthly cycles started... lightly but I was still having one which was huge!! Also I have had so much more energy (I currently am 100lbs overweight) and the bloating in my stomach has diminished greatly, oh and my blood pressure has gone from 140/92 to 122/78. I will not ever stop taking ACV and hopefully as I continue my cycles will continue to normalize. Blessings... Take your ACV!!

Hi! I am a 40 year old woman with PCOS.

I have severely thinning hair, irregular periods and a 50 lb weight gain. I have read the ACV cure on this site and wanted to know from people who have tried it how long it took before they saw results with stopping the hair loss and regrowing hair? Also, did you take ACV 2 times a day or what is the recommended dosage?

I have heard that ACV causes constipation. Any way of countering that side-effect?

I also take a daily multi-vitamin, Saw Palmetto capsule, fish oil and Biotin ( for hair) every day.

Appreciate your time and advice!

Does not cause constipation. The opposite actually.

You should get checked for hypothyroidism - those are classic symptoms.

You can also use apple cider vinegar on your hair too. I use it and let it sit for bout 5 mins prior to shampooing my hair. You can add some after conditioning. Leave it in your hair and either put leave I'm conditioner or put oil ( I recommend mixing tea tree oil and lavender oil which helps regrow hair.

I have a myriad of health problems.... Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Adrenal Fatigue, Thyroid Issues and PCOS... ugh!! Anyway, I started taking ACV twice a day to help alkaline the body since I had come to find that I am extremely acidic, even after changing my diet.

I noticed that my PCOS improved almost immediately. I got my period every 28 days (which has never happened)! I tried testing the ACV theory since I do end up doing lots of various things for my various ailments, so I stopped taking ACV regularly and lo and behold... My period did not come every 28 days. Once I started it up again, I am like clock work. I take 2T ACV w/ 1/4t of baking soda twice a day. I also eat gluten free, sugar free, limit my grains to 1 a day, eat lots of protein, have lots of healthy fats and limit my fruit intake. I have insulin resistence like with most others with PCOS, so limiting sugars, even natural sugars and eliminating most grains is very helpful.

I drink Kombucha Tea which I use Apple Cider Vinegar with to balance it.

Also there are many other supplements that are popular like D-Chiro-Inositol.

I also take ______Insulite's PCOS supplement system.

Vitex is a well-known herb for helping and/or black cohosh and crampbark tea. Also a good dose of Advil usually helps :)

Taking the right supplements combined with daily exercise and a low sugar diet will help you loose weight and be able to have children in the future.

So all in all I take ______ PCOS supplement series and D-Chlor-Inositol and Fish Oil. These have helped me loose 40 pounds and get my periods back.

I cannot stress enough, you need to avoid sugar and processed carbs such as bread, potatos, and sweet breads entirely.

Treating your insulin resistance will stop the symptoms you have from growing worse. And if you your doctor doesn't agree, find one who is up to date with the current PCOS research and is not so egotisical to think they know it all.

Just a little something I've found. I drink my ACV in orange juice, you can still smell it but you can't taste it. I also take it for PCOS and acne. After about a week, I had a period finally and it wasn't horrible like they usually are. Still waiting to see if it helps with the acne my PCOS causes as some ladies have said it has. Good luck everyone! After trying all the things the doctor gave me and spending a ton of money on prescriptions, etc... Who knew a $5 bottle of ACV was just what I needed?!

Hi I am 22. I have an illness called PCOS and it causes me to have a lot of trouble with everyday life. One really bad part about it is my acne, its on my back and face. I've tried everything. Over the counter acne meds and doctor's have given me things to use, all making it worse, and really dry. Then I heard about apple cider Vinegar. I was told to poor 1 cup of the ACV in my bath water and lay in it and take a cotton ball and dab the ACV on my face. I did. The VERY next morning my face looked so much better and my back to! I am convinced so now I am also drinking a small bit of it! I feel a lot better and look a lot better.

Also, This is personal but it may help someone so its worth it. When I was 21 I suffered from a miscarriage and Due to that, I suffered (for 9 Months) from a bacterial infection. I took all meds, pills and creams, for that to, then one day I cried to my doctor telling her nothing was giving me relief and my doctor told me just to use the ACV, After a week of bathing in it, I've not had one since.

I am 43 years old, and years ago had been diagnosed PCOS. I have never been able to ovulate on my own, or have periods without the use of hormones. I started taking ACV for my mild to moderate reflux/heartburn and it has worked great for that. I take about a teaspooon of ACV with a cup of water 1 (rarely 2) times per day. A side effect has been a decrease in stomach bloat, and suddenly, after all those years of fertility treatments, I am ovulating and getting a period regularly. In addition, I see a difference in my hair loss. I absolutely recommend it!!

I just have a question for you. First of all I thank you so much for your post, I have pcos and I've tried what seems like everything over the past 5-7 years and nothing has helped it. So now I tried your acv remedy, and now (about a week and a half later) my period comes!!! Im soooo excited, I need to get a ovulation test to see if im ovulating also. Anyway, my question to you is, while on your period do you continue to take the acv or not? Also what is an update to your routine now, or is everything normal?

Thanks in advance for your information.

Hello Simplyred,

I bought "organic" apple cider vinegar and began taking it (about 1-2 teaspoons a day) with water. A little over a week later, MY PERIOD CAME!!! I have taken 2 ovulation predictor tests, and unfortunately Im NOT ovulating. Im not sure if its just that my timing is off, but Im just hoping that I begin to ovulate, and that my period comes next month and the months thereon an continue to come regularly like they are supposed to. Let me know how it works for U!! Good Luck!!!

re: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (remedy). Apple Cider Vinegar helped my PCOS! In the morning: 1-2 teaspoonfuls of ACV in an 8 ounce glass of water. Sometimes I add a little more water if I think the taste is too strong. I did it every day at first. Now that my menstrual cycle is regular, I begin ACV treatment about 2 weeks before my cycle should start. I sometimes drink ACV to help with cramps, heavy bleeding or bloating. ACV helps me with my weight loss and flush toxins from my body. It really works and I feel so much better! There are many articles online about how ACV helps women diagnosed with PCOS. Thanks and Hope to you!

Hey. 2 years ago I gave birth to my beautiful little boy. Within about 3 months of having him, I rapidly gained a lot of weight. It was close to 40 kgs! I have also noticed that my hair just wont grow, I have really really terrible acne, and so much body hair! Its so depressing. I am 22 and used to be thin and attractive and get honked at everywhere I went, I havent had a single man even look twice at me in almost 2 years, not even my husband (who has looked elsewhere).

I recently had an ultra-sound as I suspected that I had cystic ovaries, and it turns out I do... Praise the lord! So I went back to my doctor who told me that there is no cure whatsoever besides weight loss, but that PCOS stops you losing weight!!! I pretty much wanted to jump off a cliff. She said I may want to consider lap band surgery to lose the weight, so I decided to search good ole earth clinic instead! Im sitting here with my disgusting cup of Apple Cider Vinegar in the hopes of curing me of my ugliness soon! Will keep you all posted on my progress.

Thanks for the suggestions people, please keep them coming. Its my only hope!
Love Elise

Increased consumption of sea veggies like kelp, dulce, etc.

Coconut butter and coconut oil in cooking, as well as 2 tablespoons every morning.

Elimination of sugar, white and starchy substances.

Increase of good fats like avocado, raw nuts as well as coconut products.

I take ACV every day with honey and I use a straw, I put the straw in the back of my tongue as much as possible; this helps me not to taste the ACV as much as when I take it without a straw. Hope this helps.

I am also going to the store today to start the ACV.

Staying prayed up and encoraged by so many testimonies on here. Can't wait to start periods again, ovulate and have my first of many babies;) Thanks everyone for sharing.

I just want to thank Earthclinic and everyone who shared their stories because your stories really helped me. I was bleeding continuously since late January 2012 and as of yesterday it stopped all together. I really believe Spirit lead me to this website. I figured out, via symptom list, 1 month ago that I was deficient in magnesium and iodine. I was diagnosed hypothyroid about 3 years ago. I was also briefly diagnosed with being Vit D deficient and was prescribed 5000IU of D3 for 2 weeks until the doctor ruled my levels to be back to normal.

I think with me being allergic to fish, since birth, and with having to take a short sale on the selling of my home, money loss, that I was unable to eat as much seafood and nuts that I usually wood to make up for it. To make a long story short I bought J. Crows liquid iodine and started supplementation a month and 2 weeks ago, I also suspected that I may have had calcified uterine fibroids so on top of taking geritol pills once a day and 3000mg of Inositol with folic acid, and B-complex I also added 400mg of magnesium citrate 2x per day, and so not only did this save my hair and instead of me going through 2-3 overnight maxi pads per 24 hrs per day I was now down to just 1 overnight maxi pad per day. I have to admit I read this website before around early 2011, when I should have been seeing the signs that my body was in distress, and I thought I would not have to resort to molasses or apple cider vinegar well I'm glad I did.

I made myself a coffee mug full of tea which included water, 2 capfulls of ACV(apple cider vinegar with mother), 1 squeeze of real lemon juice, and 1-2 teaspoonfuls of unsulphured blackstrap molasses. I drank this 2x per day, morning and evening. I know everyone's body is different. I thought due to me being obese that it would take a week or month for me to see results but in my case it took really just the first 2 days by the 3rd day I just drank 1 cup and by the 4th day I decided to only drink it if I saw spotting and I have not. I want to also add that I do suffer with PCOS and a week before I added the J. Crows iodine I also added extra b-6(1 capsule) and zinc supplements(1 25mg tablet) to help my body create progesterone to get me balanced again. For me all of this helped to gradually get my body balanced but the kill shot was definately the BSM, and I was able to do my 40min workouts again. I did research and I had no idea BSM had iodine, iron, potassium and so many other vitamins and minerals our bodies need. *For anyone reading this please listen to your body. Not listening to mine, inspite of genetics, definately was a factor in me becoming hypothyroid and PCOS. * I hope to share again in a few months with news of BFP. Wish me luck.

I have known I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome since I was about 20; my doctor finally agreed about two years ago. I had irregular cycles (usually once every 4 months or longer with horrible cramping and heavy bleeding) since I got my cycle at age 14 until about five months ago (I am almost 26). Once I even had constant light bleeding for 8 months straight.

My cycles have really started to regulate over the last five months (ranging from 35-40 day cycles but gradually becoming shorter) and I believe it is due to a number of reasons. I started seeing a naturopath doctor about a year ago and over time we have found what works. I am taking Omega supplements, 6 grams inositol daily, vitex twice a day, a whole food prenatal, and a BSM drink a few times a week when I remember before ovulation but after ovulation I make sure to take it everyday.

I was having very bad cramps when I came across BSM on this website and found that it almost eliminated my cramps in less than an hour! The first cycle I began taking it my period went 9 plus days to 5 days and this has continued since.

I believe the inositol and vitex have been essential for helping my cycle and I will continue to take these. Inositol has also been a huge help with regulating my mood especially around PMS time. I also drink a homemade green smoothie everyday.

With my cycles regulating since starting BSM, I can't help but wonder if that has been the final magic ingredient for me.

At first I could not bear the taste of BSM. Now I take BSM as a warm drink. I use a heaping tablespoon of unsulphured BSM and two teaspoons of raw cocoa powder (also has lots of health benefits). It almost tastes like hot chocolate.

Thank you Earth Clinic for multiple cures I have found on your website. I hope my story is able to help someone else.

I've been taking BSM (black strap molasses-Plantation brand from the health food store) for about a month now. Two and a half years ago I had my hormones tested and results showed I had too much testosterone, too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. (also low cortisol) I've had polycystic ovarian syndrome my whole life (I'm 37).

After trying to heal my body under the guidance of a nutritionist/chiropractor following the S. P. diet books (just using the initials of the book name here) my hormone imbalanced grew even more out of control. I gained about 25-30 pounds (the chiro and books told me this is supposed to be "normal" as your body heals it's metabolism) and the result was increased bleeding that did not stop.

So, for the past 2 1/2 years I've had to deal with heavy, lingering bleeding. Rx drugs are not for me, so I have been trying to solve this with natural remedies. I managed to lose the extra weight I gained following the SP diet, thank goodness. This helped lessen the bleeding. I lost more weight with diet/lots of exercise and ACV. The bleeding didn't completely stop, but more or less just lingered on and on. Still, it was a big improvement over what I had been suffering.

Then I got my new job where I am sitting a lot, started eating lots of goodies over the holidays, and...no surprise...gained some weight back. As most of us know by now fat = estrogen. Too much estrogen with not enough progesterone to counteract it (due to lack of ovulation) means excess bleeding. And, I started bleeding heavier again. I was ready to pull my hair out and really disappointed in myself for gaining weight back after all my hard work and success.

So, I came to EarthClinic and read about BSM. Once again, so many women said they had good results from it I could not ignore their advice. After taking BSM for about 2 weeks my bleeding STOPPED!!! No lingering, no spotting, nothing!

I tried several ways of taking it...on my granola first, which was totally disgusting. Then I finally tried it mixed in warm water and drinking it like tea. It's actually very, very good this way. My recipe is 2 teaspoons mixed with about one cup warm water morning and night.

After missing the night dosage for a while (during my bout with the flu) I noticed a little spotting returning. I don't know how BSM will affect me altogether, whether or not it will help me have a normal cycle, I just haven't taken it long enough. But I do know that the awful incessant bleeding has stopped and I am so relieved!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions and feedback. Without it I would never have tried BSM.
