Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: Don’t Place All The Blame On Your Genetics.

Last week one of the United States premier morning shows discussed polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and relayed how this condition is not well understood and that genetics are to blame.  In today’s broadcast we will be discussing how we do not agree with these assertions.  Furthermore, we will delve into how those with chronic conditions are often told that they are suffering largely due to their genetics when in fact conditions such as PCOS can be improved through medical and natural treatments.
