This talk will outline the 6 key factors to address in women with PCOS, and provide an evidence-based approach to treatment with clinical nutrition and functional medicine. New concepts in the approach to treating this multifactorial condition will be presented, with emphasis on identifying and addressing blockages in the treatment process. 

Details will be provided on effective evidence-based natural therapeutics to address insulin resistance, and the specific inflammatory parameters involved in PCOS. Information will be given to assist the clinician in identifying, and drilling down into the unique factors that compose the individual presentation of each woman's case, and therefore effectively treat this common endocrine and reproductive disorder with natural medicine tools.
