Holistic PCOS Doctor in Kansas

Kansas Functional Medicine and PCOS 

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder that affects around 5-10% of women of reproductive age. It is characterized by inflammation, insulin resistance, and high levels of androgen hormones, which can lead to a wide range of symptoms and complications including weight gain, irritability, infertility, and other health issues. Although there is no current PCOS cure, symptoms and the complications it can be managed effectively with comprehensive functional medicine approaches.

Dr. Tanner Wilson, DC, IFMCP at EvoHealth Kansas Functional Medicine takes a personalized and holistic approach to healthcare that considers all aspects of a patient’s health, including their lifestyle, genetics, environment, and medical history. This approach is particularly effective for managing complex and chronic conditions like PCOS.


PCOS Root Causes

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a multifactorial condition with multiple root causes. At EvoHealth Kansas Functional Medicine we focus on identifying and addressing the underlying causes of PCOS, rather than just treating the symptoms. Here are some of the root causes of PCOS that we may look for:

  1. Insulin resistance: Insulin resistance is a major root cause of PCOS. It occurs when the body becomes less sensitive to the effects of insulin, leading to high levels of insulin in the bloodstream. This can cause the ovaries to produce more androgens (male hormones), which can lead to PCOS symptoms.
  2. Inflammation: Chronic inflammation can also contribute to PCOS. It can disrupt the hormone balance in the body and cause insulin resistance.
  3. Hormonal imbalances: PCOS is also characterized by hormonal imbalances, such as high levels of androgens (male hormones) and low levels of progesterone.
  4. Gut health: Gut health plays a critical role in PCOS management. An imbalance in gut bacteria (dysbiosis) can lead to inflammation, insulin resistance, and hormonal imbalances.

PCOS is a complex condition that can have multiple underlying causes, such as insulin resistance, inflammation, and hormonal imbalances. At EvoHealth Kansas Functional Medicine, the focus is on identifying and addressing the root cause(s) of PCOS, rather than just treating the symptoms. This involves a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s health history, diet, lifestyle, and laboratory tests to identify any imbalances or dysfunctions.

Hormonal imbalances and insulin resistance are major factors that contribute to PCOS. EvoHealth Kansas Functional Medicine uses a variety of tools and therapies to balance hormones and improve insulin sensitivity, such as dietary changes, nutritional supplements, and exercise. In addition, we may also recommend natural hormone therapies.

  1. Optimizing gut health

Gut health plays a critical role in PCOS management, as there is a strong connection between gut health and hormonal balance. Dr. Tanner Wilson, DC, IFMCP uses various strategies to optimize gut health, such as addressing any gut infections or dysbiosis, and recommending a diet rich in fiber, prebiotics, and probiotics.

Stress and poor sleep can exacerbate PCOS symptoms and lead to hormonal imbalances.

They may also recommend natural supplements, such as adaptogens, to support the body’s stress response.
