In this experiment, I will attempt to heal my PCOS through all natural means – diet, exercise, mind/body work, acupuncture, and supplements.

How will I know if this experiment is successful or not? Here is the list of criteria that I am looking for:

1) Ovulation and Menstruation – My number one goal for the experiment is to regain  a real menstrual cycle, where I ovulate in a timely enough manner that pregnancy is possible.

2) Stable weight and body measurements – Along with this is a reduced waist circumference and little to no bloating around mid-section.

3) Little to no acne without the use of any medicated acne products.

4) Stable and positive emotions (and general sense of well being) that are not otherwise upended by hormone fluctuations.
