“When I was 17 I was rushed into hospital with severe pain and diagnosed with an exploding cystic on one of my ovaries and was diagnosed with PCOS. I was pretty slim, ate a ‘healthy’ mainly vegetarian soya based diet with red meat once every 3-4 weeks or so. I only ate wholegrain breads and pasta, low-fat dairy (I didn’t eat cheese) and green topped milk. I ran and was active. My periods had been very erratic since they started at 13 and continued that way for many years. I also suffered with infrequent but severe blindness + speech loss migraines; it would take me about 3-5 days to properly recover from an episode.
As I was 17 at the time with no plans of making immediate babies and not able to take ‘the pill’ to help stablise a monthly cycle (due to my migraines) I was discharged but told that I would possibly need to get back in touch with my doctor when I wanted I conceive later in life as I might find it really difficult and need medical help.
From the ages of 17-23 my periods were so random and I was lucky if I had 6 periods in a year. I continued the same diet and exercise as I believed I was making the right healthy choices in life.
When I was 24 I heard of Mac-Nutrition and had a 90-minute consultation to discuss my health regarding periods and PCOS. I was told if I made small key changes it would likely improve things for me. I was weary at first because the advice seemed like a complete paradigm shift from what I knew but my nutritionist seemed so passionate and took time to fully explain the ‘why’ of this decision so logically, I instantly implemented the advice.
3-months down the line my periods began and started running to clockwork almost to the same day EVERY month… I couldn’t believe it! Plus it was around the same time that I also stopped suffering with terrible and debilitating migraines which was a surprising and relieving bonus to my life!
I’m now 29 and have just started trying for a baby. Miraculously, I have got pregnant first time without medical intervention and I thank Mac-Nutrition for helping to change and improve my life and now my husband’s life in just 90-minutes. Thank you!”
