In May 2012 I was diagnosed with PCOS and insulin resistance. I was told that I may not be able to conceive, loose weight, or having a normal functioning body as most women do. After going to medical professional after medical professional I learned that they were more apt to medicate the issue with birth control and metformin then to actually treat the natural deficiencies in my body the natural. Because of this she was sick. More often then I would be to weak to complete anything. With the medication things continues to grow worse, then she decided to make a change. I have seen many women with PCOS suffer terribly at the hands of this illness then decided to take action and became a Trichologist that uses holistic methods. As a specialist in holistic practices and trichology, I brings a wealth of knowledge as it pertains to the hormonal changes and struggles that comes with being a cyster. I focus on balancing the body and it’s properties heal from within. As part of the Freshstart PCOS team I plan to share this knowledge to help women like you find their way to a fresh start. - Trichologist Oma Christina
