Insulin resistance : a root cause of PCOS
Problems managing polycystic ovarian syndrome? It may not be due to lack of willpower. Instead, you could be Insulin Resistant, a root cause of PCOS. Scientists at the National Institutes of Health, Stanford University and other research centers have clearly identified the existence and effects of Insulin Resistance, a biochemical condition that can cause excessive weight gain and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
PCOS and Insulin Resistance
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal imbalance linked to the way the body processes insulin after it has been produced by the pancreas to regulate blood sugar (glucose). Insulin Resistance could be caused by:
- genetic predisposition
- high stress
- unhealthy lifestyles
- environmental toxins (hygiene products, herbicides / pesticides / industrial growth fertilizers)
Insulin resistant cells
Over time, the above factors have damaged the complex ability of the body’s cells to properly utilize insulin to convert glucose to energy. This process creates Insulin Resistance.
Insulin Resistance can also cause PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is by raising insulin levels in the blood stream. Unhealthy lifestyles and genetic conditions can lead to the pancreas overproducing insulin. This excess insulin stimulates the ovaries to produce large amounts of the male hormone testosterone, which may prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg each month, thus causing infertility. High levels of insulin also increase the conversion of androgens (male hormones) to estrogens (female hormones), upsetting a delicate balance between the two and having a direct effect on weight gain and the formation of cystic follicles or ovarian cysts.
Symptoms of PCOS
The symptoms vary widely from woman to woman. Because the symptoms vary so widely and not all women display all the symptoms, doctors very often misdiagnose PCOS. This became an issue of critical concern after a study in 2000 found that women suffering from PCOS have a higher risk of coronary heart disease.
- polycystic ovaries
- irregular or completely absent periods,
- Hirsutism (excessive facial or body hair),
- Alopecia (hair loss),
- skin tags (raisin-like growths on the skin),
- Acanthosis Nigricans (brown skin patches),
- exhaustion or lack of mental alertness
- decreased sex drive.
- high blood pressure
- high levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol
- atherosclerosis, which occurs when fatty deposits called plaque cling to the interior walls of the arteries, leading to blockages that can cause heart attacks or stroke. Not only do PCOS sufferers have higher rates of plaque buildup but those over 45 have thicker deposits of plaque.
- up to 40% of women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome have either impaired glucose tolerance or Type 2 Diabetes by the age of 40.

- birth control
- laporoscapy surgery every couple years
I choose the laporoscapy surgery. Unfortunately, because I still had the candida overgrowth, the endo returned within a few months. I began searching alternative medicine archives.
I tried this for 3 years, without cheating.
- organic, mostly raw food diet, no hormones or antibiotics
- purified water
- excercize (5-45 min day on mini trampoline, aerobic, stretching)
- avoided 37 food allergens (including dairy, wheat, egg, some beans, etc)
- no refined sugar, caffiene, chemical preservatives or food dyes
- many brands of supplements (starting with cheap ones, ending with expensive brands.
- followed candida diet (no sugars, vinegars, processed meats, etc)
After 3 years of disciplined struggle, I still had Endometriosis and systemic Candida Overgrowth.
What finally worked:
- ALKALINE CELLS: Created with Energizing Soy, Vitalizer, Osteomatrix & Alfalfa
- DIET: As Shaklee strengthened my body and my food allergies were overcome, I gradually add in more foods.
- CANDIDA: killing the candida overgrowth (which is usually the root cause of endo.)
- SCAR TISSUE: dissolved with Fiber Plan
- ENDOMETRIAL LINING: repaired with antioxidants (A, B, C, E)
- NERVOUS SYSTEM: balanced with B-complex
- HORMONES/ CELLULAR REJUVINATION: balanced with lots of Energizing Soy Protein
- HORMONES / INFLAMMATION: balanced with essential oils (omegaguard, gla, lecithin)
- DNA REPAIR: repaired damage DNA with Vivix (which also rebalances hormones, keeps candida astray and keeps inflamation down)
- EXCERCIZE: (5-45 min day on mini trampoline, aerobic, stretching)

A variety of factors can cause the stomach to cramp or intestine to get ‘clogged’ or coated, leading to mal-absorption or allergy issues.
- insufficient fiber: most Americans eat 5-7 grams of fiber (recommended 25-50 grams)
- Candida overgrowth causing ‘leaky gut’ (microscopic holes in intestinal walls allowing foods to enter bloodstream and causing histamine overproduction & antibody formation)
- insufficient pure water intake
- too much refined sugar
- too many processed foods stripped of live enzymes
- inefficient enzyme production or hydrochloric acid in the stomach
- food allergy / sensitivity causing undigested food to coat the intestine

10 days to a Better You.
- Cleansing makes people feel better and look younger.
- Because of the chemicals found in food, air, water & environment, glandular systems are crippled, causing depression, obesity, fatigue, & frequently illness.
- No other animal could survive if they ate the chemicals humans eat.
- Even humans that come from indigenous parts of the world become deathly ill when they adopt the “Western” diet.
- Our bodies are sick & polluted, & just like neglected machines, they suffer when not running at peak efficiency.
- Our Master Cleanse can help change that. It’s not magic; it flushes out the waste that’s putting a huge burden on every organ in your body.
- Dr Bernard Jensen explains how internal waste poisons the entire body:
“The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level.”
~ Dr Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D.
Thankfully Our Master Cleanse can eliminate waste and reverse lots of damage.
Tried & failed?
Tried the original Lemonade Master Cleanse (1950s) and failed? Why?
- blood sugar imbalance
- lack of protein
- too many toxins to eliminate
- detox effect
Science has solved these problems by adding specific products & foods.

Cleanse to more productivity!
- A balanced metabolism feels better. Cleansing (removing unhealthy chemicals, fats & sugars) increases metabolism efficiency (cells reproduce faster).
- Better cells are produced when better ingredients (protein, vitamins & minerals) are bioavailable in the bloodstream.
- DNA damage (genetic weaknesses) get duplicated as cells reproduce. If genetic weaknesses (caused by the free radical damage, heredity or chemical toxicity) are repaired, the resulting reproduced cells can create healthier organs.
- When protected from unhealthy chemicals, fats & sugars, less problems develop in aging.
- It’s easier to be productive when you feel good!
- What if I want to only use the cleansing items, can I? Yes, but the best results are achieved by jumpstarting the metabolism with the cleanse.
- What if I want to only repair my DNA, can I? Yes. You can add the other products later.
- How long do I cleanse? Cleanse from one month to forever. The longer you cleanse, the stronger your cells will become over the years. I cleanse every day.

Hormone Elevator – too bumpy to ride?
People who eat poor diets and put themselves under an enormous amount of stress will not be in balance; their bodies will create disease. This can manifest as hormone problems (hormone inbalance, PMS, moodiness, anxiety, irritability, breast tenderness, backaches, headaches, excessive bleeding, pain, fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, miscarriage, early menopause, low energy, low sex drive), pancreatic illness, heart disease, high blood pressure, and eventually cancer.
Lifestyle of many women with menstrual disorders:
- very stressed (good and bad stress counts)
- unbalanced diet (Should be 30% protein, 40% carbs, 30% fat)
- too much high fat meat
- too many simple carbs (white sugar & flour)
- too few complex carbs (whole grains, legumes, beans, veggies, fruits)
- too many dehydrating liquids (alcohal, soda, coffee)
- too many carbonated beverages (inhibits calcium metabolism)
- too many foods that create ‘acidic cells’
- too many processed foods (food w/out enough nutrients for body)
- affected by too many toxins (in air, water, food, homes, work place)
