Reflexologist Madeleine Shaw on how she managed her PCOSPosted by in Events
I have had a weird period cycle for as long as I can remember. When I came off the pill a few years ago I lost my periods for over a year. It was pretty scary and the fearful thought of “what if I can’t have children” started to plague me. I investigated further and found I had PCOS. To the horror of a quick google search I started to panic. However, through eating well and using alternative medicine I have managed to get my periods more regular and balance my hormones. When I started to open my eyes to PCOS I realised I wasn’t to only one going through this so I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful people I’ve met along my journey. I’m very excited to share another one of my ‘7 Life Changing Tips…’ series with you. This time Gemma Ireland from Bodyflow shares her 7 Tips to help you manage and alleviate PCOS.
My motherhood dreams were shattered at the young age of 17, following a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Endometriosis by a Gynecologist who said that I would never have a child. Against all the odds given, I was determined to prove this wrong. With the help of Reflexology and altering my diet and lifestyle, I felt I might one day be a mother. These conditions plagued me and became part of my life for several years, but I continued to follow the lifestyle and treatment I sensed were going to help my body to prepare for pregnancy. My tenacity proved me right; I am now a mother of a gorgeous 7-year-old boy and no longer suffer from either of them.
As a Reflexologist for the past 16 years, I have specialized in helping balance my clients’ systems that suffer from PCOS, fertility issues and so many other imbalances in the body. I have brought much happiness altering these problems…the natural way!
