“Let food be thy medicine.” One of the most common #infertility conditions I treat is #PCOS. And it’s a condition where diet and lifestyle play an essential role in the treatment. What a patient eats determines the rate and trajectory of healing. A PCOS diet should rely heavily on foods with a low glycemic load and with anti-inflammatory properties. Cruciferous vegetables fall into this category. These include: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts (my favorite!), radish, turnips, bok choy, watercress, arugula, and daikon. More importantly, cruciferous veggies contain a phytonutrient, DIM, which metabolizes excess estrogens in the body. This excess estrogen, or estrogen dominance, is responsible for weight gain, headaches, and infertility. Helping to balance the sex hormones is vital to restoring proper ovulation and fertility.
