So now that you know you have PCOS what can you do about it? The most important change you can make is to your diet and the first step is to quit refined sugar. Sound difficult?

Once or twice a year I like to hit the 'reset' button for my body by doing a cleanse. Spring is the perfect time to cleanse your body. The weather is warming, which makes the body feel like moving more, letting go of some of it's fat stores and eating a lighter, fresher diet.

Doing a regular cleanse helps me keeps my periods regular & less painful and prevents return of acne & clogged pores.
