What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a name given to a broad collection of female disorders and diseases. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is one of the most common endocrine disorders affecting women throughout their lives. The consequences of PCOS are far reaching and affect reproductive, metabolic, and cardiovascular health. These disorders are a related cluster, not simply an unfortunate happenchance. It has been estimated that 10% of women of child-bearing age could be suffering from PCOS. The percentage could be as high as 50% among those women who are chubby, fat or obese. These disorders and diseases are actually symptoms of PCOS.
Your doctor may not even acknowledge polycystic ovarian syndrome. Physicians typically diagnose the symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome as individual diseases and treat each one separately. Professional medical references typically list the symptoms of PCOS when describing the cause. The cause and treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome are scientifically known as will be presented here. However, professional medical references hesitate to identify the syndrome, fail to identify the cause, and have no suggestions for treating PCOS. Physicians typically treat the symptoms of PCOS by trying to mitigate the symptoms. These attempts consistently fail because the foundational cause and treatment presented here are ignored.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
What are the Disorders and Diseases Related to PCOS?
Ovarian cysts are one of the first signs that a young women has symptoms of PCOS. Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled ovarian follicles from which the egg fails to release during the monthly cycle. The cysts usually disappear after a few months but can grow and rupture to become a serious health problem. The cysts are caused by the abnormal growth of ovarian tissue and can cause pain and discomfort. Common medical treatment is surgery to remove the ovary. This treatment is unfortunate because the root cause for the cyst remains, and the second ovary commonly develops cysts as well. The second surgery leaves the woman permanently sterile.

Ovarian cancer is the uncontrolled abnormal growth of ovarian cells. The cancer cells in the surface layer of the ovary are called "epithelial carcinoma." Cancer growing from the egg-producing cells is called "germ cell cancer." Less common cancer growing within the other areas of the ovary are called "stromal cancer." Since ovarian cancer may not produce symptoms, it can go undiagnosed until it spreads to other organs. Common medical treatment is surgery for the removal of the ovaries and tumors followed by radiation and/or chemotherapy. Professional medical societies have not identified the cause for ovarian cancer, but it is simply one of the diseases related to polycystic ovarian syndrome. The vegetarian diet will not prevent ovarian cancer. Actually, it is the cause.

Endometriosis is a condition in which abnormal tissue grows in and around the ovaries, uterus, and other areas in the pelvis and abdomen. These tissues can form an interconnecting web with attachments to the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder, uterus, intestines, appendix, rectum, and lining of the abdomen. The woman has pain when the structures prevent normal flexibility of the various organs. Attachments to the small intestines and colon prevent normal movement and flexibility resulting in pain and discomfort. The endometriosis tissue is stretched or torn causing pain. Medical examinations such as a colonoscopy prove to be negative because the endometriosis tissues are on the outer surfaces of the intestines, not internal. For this reason, endometriosis is often misdiagnosed or continues without any diagnosis. The common medical treatment is surgery to remove some of the endometriosis tissue. These surgeries are only a temporary solution because the remaining tissue and new tissue continue to grow. These surgeries fail to remove the root cause of the growth.
Hormone Imbalances are among the major symptoms of women with PCOS. The high insulin levels drive the ovaries to covert progesterone to testosterone. The insulin also reduces the serum hormone binding globulin (SHBG). These effects result in a hyperandrogenic state in the ovary resulting in follicle atresia (closing of the tubular opening preventing release of the egg) and ovulatory dysfunction. Many physicians attempt to correct the hormone imbalances by prescribing hormone therapy. This approach is counter productive and ineffective because the therapy is fighting the root cause of the hormone imbalance, not removing it.

Hormone changes in the various stages of the monthly cycle for women
Hormone fault 'causes infertility' - July 20, 2003.
Irregular Menstruation and Amenorrhea (cessation of menstrual periods) are other major symptom of women with PCOS. The hormone imbalances stated above disrupt the menstrual periods. In mild PCOS cases or in younger women the menstrual period may be skipped infrequently, but in severe PCOS complete cessation of menstruation can occur. Excessive exercises like jogging make the condition worse, not better as commonly claimed.
Studies have shown that injecting female hamsters with insulin will stop their reproductive cycle. In the same manner, a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet as eaten by vegetarians or as recommended by the USDA Food Pyramid Guide will increase insulin and disrupt fertility in women. The hormones in these women often become so disrupted that amenorrhea occurs (the cessation of menstruation). They cannot become pregnant. In contrast, a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet of adequate calories, as recommended here, corrects hormonal imbalances, and promotes fertility.
Menstrual problems - March 20, 2006.
Infertility is the obvious result of constant high insulin levels (hyperinsulinemia) in women with PCOS. The combination of hormonal disruption and closing of the egg follicle of the ovary causes infertility. Eggs are prevented from being released from the ovary, thereby preventing any hope of pregnancy. Either the hormone imbalances are not supportive of fertilized eggs becoming implanted in the uterus, or an implanted egg is flushed away.

One woman's battle with infertility - January 24, 2004.
Miscarriage is threatened in all months of pregnancy in women with PCOS. The hormone imbalance simply does not support the necessary body functions required in a pregnant woman. The fetus is flushed from the uterus and dies. Women with PCOS who are attempting to become pregnant are most likely unaware that they are having several miscarriages yearly. Physicians specializing in infertility and prenatal care may attempt to keep the fetus from spontaneously aborting by administering hormone therapy. This approach can be successful in a certain percentage of the cases.
Insulin Resistance Increases the Risk of Spontaneous Abortion Following Assisted Reproduction Technology Treatment.
Excess Body and Facial Hair appear as other common symptoms in women with PCOS. The growth of hair is caused by the excessive level of testosterone, leading to male characteristics.
Loss of Scalp Hair is also related to the high level of testosterone, resulting in male pattern baldness.
Weight Gain and Obesity are the norm in women with PCOS, but obesity is not a requirement in the diagnosis of PCOS. Many slender women have PCOS; these women tend to be those who exercise excessively and control caloric intake.
Insulin resistance and metabolic profile in lean and overweight/obese polycystic ovary syndrome patients.
Insulin Resistance is a symptom in all cases of PCOS and is directly related to the root cause described below. Insulin resistance occurs in cells of the muscles as a result of cellular insulin fatigue. The cells simply become resistant to the onslaught of high levels of insulin, forcing the cells to burn glucose for the production of heat or work. The body becomes resistant to the effects of insulin, so higher and higher levels are produced to get the same effect. The cells say, "Enough is enough." Insulin can be compared to a turbocharger on an internal combustion engine. The turbo pushes air and fuel into the engine to increase the power output. Insulin resistance has been shown to be associated with hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridaemia), glucose intolerance, excessive cholesterol, and lipoprotein in the blood such as VLDL and LDL (dyslipidaemia), high blood uric acid, and gout (hyperuricaemia), high blood pressure (hypertension), and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Insulin resistance in PCOS.
Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiometabolic Risk in PCOS.
As the cells become insulin resistant, the blood insulin level keeps increasing as required to remove the excess glucose from the blood. The brain is very sensitive to the glucose level and attempts to maintain a constant normal range. The higher insulin level (hyperinsulinemia) forces the excess glucose to be stored as body fat. This is the reason women with PCOS suffer from weight gain and obesity in most cases. However, fat cells can become insulin resistant as well and insulin levels continue to rise. Hyperinsulinemia also forces low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids into the lining of the arteries, causing coronary artery disease (CAD), peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and carotid artery disease of the neck leading to a stroke.
Diabetes is often misdiagnosed in women with PCOS when the capacity of the woman's pancreas to produce insulin remains strong. The upper level of blood glucose can be kept from reaching symptomatic levels because of the strong supply of insulin. Women with PCOS mistakenly nibble and snack on high-carbohydrate foods whenever a lower glucose level causes increased hunger. This method prevents hypoglycemic symptoms. These women often eat and snack in such a manner that their blood sugar remains in a near normal range. Doctors frequently tell patients with PCOS to eat this way, but nibbling on high-carbohydrate foods all day long is the road to disaster. Many doctors also fail to check the blood insulin and glucose levels during a 5-hour glucose tolerance test. In reality, all women with PCOS are diabetic. Some are diagnosed as diabetic, but many are not. Nibbling and snacking on high-carbohydrate foods in order to control blood sugar is the worst thing a woman with PCOS could do. This method makes insulin resistance worse and PCOS symptoms more severe.

Doctors Ignore Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Beth began having menstrual problems when she was 14. At age 16 she began gaining excess body fat and was soon 20 pounds overweight. This is the true story of her unsuccessful battle with PCOS. She ate the typical high-carbohydrate diet of cereal with milk and orange juice for breakfast; crackers, and cookies for a snack; fruit, and bagels for lunch; more crackers, and cookies for a snack; pasta with French bread for dinner; and more fruit and bread for an evening snack. She drank either fruit juice or soft drinks for much of her liquid intake. By age 35 Beth had become obese with facial hair, irregular menstrual periods, and abdominal attacks with severe pain. Her doctor gave her all the standard tests and examinations but did not recommend anything that made any difference whatsoever.
A relative gave Beth an article about PCOS. She skimmed it but didn't bother to give it much attention or serious study. On her next visit to the doctor she asked him,
"Do I have PCOS?"
He said, "Yes, you do."
She said, "Why didn't you tell me?"
He said, "Because there is nothing we can do about it."
The doctor was right. She did have PCOS, and there was nothing he could do about it. His medical training and his professional medical society basically ignore PCOS. Pharmaceutical companies ignore PCOS because they cannot develop a drug to combat the numerous symptoms. Drugs that increase the body's sensitivity to insulin, such as metformin (used to treat diabetes), are sometimes used with limited success because the root cause is ignored. Beth's doctor offered no prescription drugs and gave no advice. He didn't even bother to discuss diet with her because he would never have advised her to eat a high-fat, high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. He doctor was taught that "eating red meat and saturated fat causes heart disease, you know."
Beth was an undiagnosed diabetic. Her doctor didn't even run any tests for diabetes. She did not complain of hypoglycemia because she nibbled and snacked all day long on high-carbohydrate foods in order to satisfy her food cravings caused by blood sugar swings. She didn't have hyperglycemia either, because her pancreas produced large quantities of insulin in order to control the onslaught of blood glucose. According to her doctor's observations she was not diabetic, but in reality Beth had been a diabetic for years. She could never have passed a 5-hour glucose tolerance test. He never bothered to test her blood insulin level either.
Beth eventually insisted that her doctor do exploratory surgery to determine what was causing her severe abdominal pains. She was fearful of cancer. Since insurance companies do not pay for exploratory surgery, he justified his exploratory surgery by removing her gallbladder regardless of the fact that it may not have been diseased. He told her the gallbladder was coming out whether it was the problem or not. He could not submit charges for gallbladder surgery to the insurance company without removing it. Beth's gallbladder was removed, and her doctor found the source for her severe abdominal pain. Beth had a massive structure of endometrial tissues spanning her abdominal cavity like heavy spider webs, called endometriosis. She had endometrial growths everywhere.
Beth had another surgery to remove her endometrial growths, ovaries, and uterus. This surgery did relieve much of her abdominal pains, but she was still diabetic. After the surgery her sex hormones plunged. She started having "hot flashes" and began hormone replacement therapy which caused her to suffered numerous undesirable side effects. Beth will likely die from heart disease because 75% of diabetics die from heart disease. She still doesn't eat red meat or saturated fat, and her doctor thinks that is great. She continues to eat lots of whole grains and fruit.
Don't be Brainwashed by Professional Medical and Health Authorities - True Story
This is another true story about a registered nurse and her daughter. The nurse had been thoroughly brainwashed during her education and training. She was taught to eat a diet with lots of fruits, whole grains, and starchy vegetables. She avoided red meat, saturated fats, butter, coconut oil, and palm oil because she had been taught that these foods caused cancer and heart disease. She wasn't fat, but she developed three or more autoimmune diseases. Her daughter was ideal weight and looks like a fine example of a healthy lifestyle, but this would not last long. Before reaching 20 years of age she started to have ovary problems. Her mother did know that her daughter's diet had given her PCOS, and the doctor's eventually removed both ovaries to deny her the chance of ever having a baby. Doctor's rarely recommend diet changes as a treatment of PCOS. But this was not the end to the daughter's health problems. She soon developed inflammatory bowel diseases and suffered for years with poor digestion, frequent diarrhea, bloating, and pain. Then came the bloody stools and the doctor's diagnosis of colorectal cancer followed by surgery, radiation, and dreadful chemotherapy. Naturally, her mother was by her side with more "professional" advice. During recovery the daughter cheered that she would soon be about to eat her favorite meals - salads. A few months later all of her original IBD symptoms had returned with a vengeance. Chemotherapy had also left her with a lifetime of miserable side-effects including dangerously low white blood cell count, iron deficiency anemia, constant fatigue, headaches, weird vision changes, a "foggy chemo-brain", and the general feeling of being unwell. Oh, she still avoids red meat and natural animal fats because neither her mother nor her oncologist told her that red meat provides heme iron and all of the nutrients for awesome health. Neither the professional registered nurse, doctors, or brainwashed daughter realized that amino acids from meat of the building bloods for immune system cells and the whole body. Her prognosis is bleak because 65 of those who endure this treatment are dead within five years. Read my book "Absolute Truth Exposed - Volume 1" below to learn the optimal diet for those with PCOS and the diet to avoid getting other autoimmune diseases and cancer.
What Causes Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?
The constant onslaught of carbohydrates in the diet causes polycystic ovarian syndrome, period. It is as simple as that. Medical references and physicians frequently list one or several of the symptoms of PCOS as the cause. They may list insulin resistance as the cause of PCOS, but it is only a secondary factor. The high-carbohydrate diet is the cause. Insulin resistance results when a female eats a high-carbohydrate diet as recommended by the USDA Food Guide Pyramid. There are no good carbohydrates. Don't believe the "good-carbs, bad-carbs" myth. Complex carbohydrates become 100% glucose sugar during digestion. The glucose crosses the gut-blood barrier in the small intestines to become blood glucose that must be cleared from the blood by the action of insulin. Nibbling on complex carbohydrates is no better than nibbling on simple carbohydrates like pure sugar. All carbohydrates are bad. There are no good carbohydrates.
Absolute Scientific Proof Carbohydrates Are Pathogenic.
Carbohydrate Death Curve
The long and short-term effects of eating carbohydrates are shown on the graph curve below. Degenerative diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, osteoporosis, and many other diseases increase as the percentage of carbohydrates in the diet increases. The long-term effect occurs on the left side of the curve where lower amounts of carbohydrates are eaten. Carbohydrates are not a dietary requirement for humans. This scientific physiological truth applies equally to all humans. The detrimental effects of high levels of carbohydrates accumulate over the years, thereby creating the degenerative effect that appears to be age related. Age is only a secondary factor. This is why some older people do not have these diseases. The short-term climax occurs at the far right end of the curve, where a diet consisting of 100% carbohydrates will result in a quick and certain death within weeks.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is Not Inherited or Genetic
The claim is often made that PCOS is genetic or inherited because mothers with PCOS will often have daughters who develop PCOS as well. This simplistic assumption is not valid and lacks hard scientific proof. The reason mothers with PCOS have daughters who develop PCOS starts in the womb. A woman with PCOS has insulin resistance. She has a high blood level of insulin when she eats high-carbohydrate foods. A fetus in the womb during the first few months of pregnancy does not have any insulin resistance. Therefore, the high level of glucose and the high level of insulin function like a massive supercharger of energy into the fetus. The cells of the fetus are literally stuffed with glucose. The temperature of the fetus rises in a desperate attempt to discharge the energy. The fetus quickly becomes insulin resistant from the onslaught of glucose and insulin, not from any genetic factor. The result can also be a brain damaged baby, Downs syndrome or the development of autism is the result of damage to the brain of the fetus in the womb. These birth defects are claimed to be genetic, but they are not. These brain damaged children became epidemic as the "low-fat, low-cholesterol diet" became popular.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can be Prevented and Treated
The proper treatment for PCOS is a drastic change in the diet by slashing carbohydrates to an absolute minimum. Carbohydrates are scientifically not needed in the diet. The minimum daily requirement is zero -- none. The liver naturally maintains a perfect level of blood glucose from dietary fats and protein. A diet with little or no carbohydrates results in a minimum level of insulin, thereby preventing insulin resistance and PCOS. Women who already have PCOS will have a sudden reversal of all of the PCOS related diseases listed above when they switch to an ultra low-carbohydrate diet. Hormone levels will return to normal. Menstrual periods will return to normal. They most likely will become fertile within a few months. Miscarriages will cease, and pregnancies will be carried to full term without hormone therapy. Weight loss will begin immediately. Insulin resistance will begin to fade; however, the damage has been done and cannot be entirely reversed. They can never return to their previous high-carbohydrate diet without severe repercussions and a full resumption of all of their ailments.
Female babies of women who have PCOS will not be born with insulin resistance if the mother eats a low-carbohydrate diet throughout her pregnancy. The dreadful fear of having a child with autism can be dismissed summarily. Digestive problems associated with having PCOS will also diminish.

Drugs May Help Women With Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
The primary treatment for women with PCOS is the diet listed below. This low-carbohydrate diet is absolutely essential in order to have any hope of reducing the PCOS symptoms, regulating the hormones, reducing weight, and getting pregnant. Prescription drugs can give an additional boost by correcting some of the imbalances in the levels of insulin, glucose, and sex hormones.
Aldactone (spironolactone) is used to diagnose or treat a condition in which you have too much aldosterone in your body. Aldosterone is a hormone produced by your adrenal glands to help regulate the salt and water balance in your body. Aldactone is an aldosterone receptor antagonists, meaning it blocks receptors that are responsive to aldosterone hormone.
User Reviews of Aldactone (spironolactone) for High Blood Pressure and PCOS. "This medicine treated high-blood pressure, water retention, acne, female/male pattern hair-loss, excessive, unwanted facial hair and is a potassium sparing medicine. It is ideal for sufferers of insulin resistance or pcos. Although it hasn't completely stopped the unwanted hair growth it has been the only thing that has made a significant difference by slowing it down drastically. It has also slowed the hair-loss down significantly in which I am very pleased with."
"I have taken spironolactone for almost 3 years now and have been extremely pleased with it's effect on my hirsutism. I used to bleach my facial hair regularly and had dark hair on my arms. Now the fine hair on my face is blonde and hardly noticable and the arm hair is very light and thinner."
"I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries a couple years ago, having missed a couple periods and showing increased testosterone levels in my bloodwork. My dermatologist was actually the one to prescribe spironolactone - for my acne. While I haven't noticed a huge difference in terms of my skin problems, my periods have finally gotten more regular (31- to 33-day cycle, approximately) when taking 45 mg/day. I've noticed no side effects while taking spironolactone."
Metformin (Glucophage) is effective in reducing the blood levels of glucose and insulin. The liver produces excess glucose in women with PCOS even though they conform rigidly to the low-carbohydrate diet recommended below. The pancreas responds to the excess glucose by increasing the insulin level. These undesirable body responses are among the major causes for PCOS. Glucophage XR has been more closely associated with weight loss than generic Metformin. Glucophage can be taken by women who are not diabetic. It does not reduce the glucose to an extreme (hypoglycemia) in women who are not diabetic and who are also on the low-carbohydrate diet presented here. It reduces the levels of blood glucose and insulin to a more normal level.
"Metformin is an antihyperglycemic agent which improves glucose tolerance in patients with type 2 diabetes, lowering both basal and postprandial plasma glucose. Its pharmacologic mechanisms of action are different from other classes of oral antihyperglycemic agents. Metformin decreases hepatic glucose production, decreases intestinal absorption of glucose, and improves insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilization. Unlike sulfonylureas, metformin does not produce hypoglycemia in either patients with type 2 diabetes or normal subjects (except in special circumstances, see PRECAUTIONS) and does not cause hyperinsulinemia. With metformin therapy, insulin secretion remains unchanged while fasting insulin levels and day-long plasma insulin response may actually decrease."
"Teratogenic Effects: Pregnancy Category B"
"Recent information strongly suggests that abnormal blood glucose levels during pregnancy are associated with a higher incidence of congenital abnormalities. Most experts recommend that insulin be used during pregnancy to maintain blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, Glucophage and Glucophage XR should not be used during pregnancy unless clearly needed."
"There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women with Glucophage or Glucophage XR. Metformin was not teratogenic in rats and rabbits at doses up to 600 mg/kg/day. This represents an exposure of about two and six times the maximum recommended human daily dose of 2000 mg based on body surface area comparisons for rats and rabbits, respectively. Determination of fetal concentrations demonstrated a partial placental barrier to metformin."
Treatment of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome with Insulin Lowering Medications - Georgia Reproductive Specialists.
Dutasteride (Avodart) is an FDA approved drug for the treatment of enlarged prostate in middle-aged and elderly men. It prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, which reverses the symptoms of an enlarged prostate and male-pattern baldness. The drug has been recommended as a treatment for male-pattern baldness in women with PCOS. Avodart is well tolerated even in higher doses and does not present any problems when taken with other drugs. It is very specific and effective in treating the root causes, not just the symptoms.
"Dutasteride inhibits the conversion of testosterone to 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the androgen primarily responsible for the initial development and subsequent enlargement of the prostate gland. Testosterone is converted to DHT by the enzyme 5α-reductase, which exists as 2 isoforms, type 1 and type 2. The type 2 isoenzyme is primarily active in the reproductive tissues, while the type 1 isoenzyme is also responsible for testosterone conversion in the skin and liver.
Dutasteride is a competitive and specific inhibitor of both type 1 and type 2 5α-reductase isoenzymes, with which it forms a stable enzyme complex. Dissociation from this complex has been evaluated under in vitro and in vivo conditions and is extremely slow. Dutasteride does not bind to the human androgen receptor."

Are Internet Drugs Safe? The manufacturer of a drug that can be purchased over the Internet should be reviewed to insure the quality of the company. Search for the manufacturer's website before placing the order. The drugs received should be packaged in special bubble wrap packages with the manufacturer's name, drug name, and dosage clearly printed. The complexity of the package and the printing indicates authenticity. Receiving tablets or capsules that are packaged loose in a plain bottle or simple box is totally unacceptable. Some of the suppliers above ship high-quality generic and name brand drugs from multibillion dollar international pharmaceutical companies such as Ranbaxy Laboratories (India), GlaxoKlineSmith (United Kingdom), CIPLA, Limited (India), Sun Pharmaceuticals Industries, LTD. (India), Surya Pharma (India), Unichem Laboratories Limited (India), Mega Fine Pharma (India), Ind-Swift Limited (India), Dr. Reddy's Pharmaceutical Company (worldwide), and Stada Arzneimittel AG (Germany). Avoid all drugs made in China.
Are Prescription Drugs Bad for Us? Most people have become extremely resistant to taking prescription drugs until they are faced with the choice between taking a drug or certain death. Most doctors hesitate to prescribe antibiotics based on the false logic that drugs create drug-resistant bacteria. The doctors would rather sacrifice the patient for what they feel is for the higher good of society. Another example is the hesitancy of most doctors to prescribe an antibiotic when the patient is suspected of having common food poisoning. The physicians use the false logic that the patient's immune system is sufficient to make him better in a few days. The doctor may also fail to test for the pathogen which could later be found to be deadly. A common e-Coli bacterial infection can cause permanent liver damage and death. Food poisoning causes 4,000 deaths in the United States every year.
Some prescription drugs have been found to cause death, and many have been pulled off the market by the US-FDA. Other drugs have serious negative side effects, but the bad drugs should not be used as a blanket to label all drugs as unacceptable. Many drugs are awesome. As an example, I ate some raw green pepper for lunch one day which was contaminated with a pathogenic bacteria, resulting in typical food poisoning symptoms. I immediately took one 500 mg tablet of Cipro. Some doctors avoid prescribing Cipro because of negative side effects; however, the food poisoning symptoms soon dissipated, and I ate a full prime rib dinner without any recurrence of the symptoms. Placing a blanket rejection label on all prescription drugs can be dangerously unhealthy.
Are Generic Prescription Drugs Safe? Generic drugs purchased from your local drugstore may not be as safe as Internet drugs even though you purchased them with a doctor's prescription. In some cases you may not know the origin of manufacture. The drugs are handled in bulk rather than safety bubble wrap. They may have come from China where impurities in food, supplements, and drugs are common. They could contain heavy metals, carcinogens, or toxic trace chemicals. Don't assume you are getting the best quality drugs simply because you purchased them with a doctor's prescription from your local pharmacy on your health insurance.
A college student's mother writes.
"By the way, my daughter is much better… she’s stopped being a vegetarian (yay!), cut way back on the jogging, got her period back (after 8 months!) and her bowels seem better too… Thanks for all your encouragement."
A wife and husband describe their "miracle" baby.
"We were thrilled to hear from you both and appreciate your kind interest in us and our 'miracle baby' Rachel! She will be 1 year old on July 21st! What a year it has been and she is such a blessing!
Sure, I will be happy to re-tell our little story as we are so thankful and I am eternally grateful for all of the works that you have published regarding human health and pregnancy. God guided me to you and to one of the best decisions of my life.
About a year after my husband and I had been married, we made the decision to be free of birth control methods and allow our plans to have children to take its course. Unfortunately, after 2 years of no luck with conception, we both became discouraged. Not realizing the barrier I was creating for myself (at that time), I had been a vegetarian for the prior 18 years. I spent nearly a year reading, researching and praying for all that we could do to assist our attempts at pregnancy. During this time of intense study, I stumbled upon your website and numerous articles related to human health, food choices and fertility. At that time, I had the free use of office equipment and I printed page after page of your reports, organized them all by subject matter and read them each twice. I prayed over what God was trying to tell me: "I know that you have been a vegetarian for many years and you have felt that was the right lifestyle for you, but that lifestyle choice may be the very thing that is keeping your body in hibernation as far as fertility is concerned." I finally listened to my Heart on the matter and let my husband know of my decision.
Within 6 months of my husband and I bringing meat and full fat dairy foods back into our home and back into our daily meals, we were Blessed with Conception! I continued your recommended diet plan (for pregnancy and conception) throughout the pregnancy, didn't gain too much baby weight and was back to my pre-pregnancy weight within the first month.
Since our baby girl's birth I have nursed her only; she never consumed commercial baby formula and now in her nearly 12th month she is making her conversion to whole cow's milk, both fresh and powdered. When we began introducing table foods (at about 6 months) she was offered only high-protein foods (eggs, meats), vegetables, few carbohydrate foods and yogurt. I have prepared nearly all of her foods at home with a mini food processor and she basically eats what we eat, just chopped or pureed as necessary.
Rachel is a picture of health and has never been treated by a doctor for illness. She has never experienced the frequent ear aches, fevers, sore throats, colds, etc. shared by so many children that I hear about. She has been saying words for several months, sings/dances, "reads" books, has been walking since her 10th month and tries to lift every (heavy) thing she finds interesting! One of her Grandmothers calls her "little BamBam" sometimes because she is so strong!
We are so proud! and we are so thankful to you for helping us see the error in some of our ways, I am especially thankful to have been "redirected" about how vegetarianism was no longer the way for me or my family."

This diet reverses the symptoms of PCOS and promotes natural fertility. Artificial hormones used to increase fertility should be discontinued. It is suggested that a women seeking to become pregnant actually use a non-hormonal method of birth control for several months in order to prevent another premature miscarriage or the conception of a baby with birth defects. The mother's body must be given a chance to heal. All of her hormones (insulin, adrenal hormones and all of the sex hormones) must be given time to adjust to normal. Her body must heal in order for a healthy conception that will produce a 10-point baby. A high-fat, high-cholesterol, high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet produces healthy hormones in women. This diet includes unlimited amounts of eggs, real butter, cheese, red meat, fowl, fish, and seafood, including generous amounts of all the fats contained therein. This is a high-fat diet in which 70% of the calories are obtained from animal fats, avocados, and coconut oil.
Women on a high-cholesterol, high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet consisting of eggs, real butter, cheese, red meat, fowl, fish, and seafood, including generous amounts of all the fats contained therein, have a strong, natural, healthy sex drive. Couples in their mid-sixties enjoy natural sex several times a week without stimulating drugs while both achieve orgasm. A strong sex drive on the high-cholesterol, high-fat diet is natural because the diet is scientifically based. Cholesterol is the precursor for the body's manufacture of the natural sex hormones. The proper balance of hormones will cure many infertility problems and other symptoms of PCOS. This diet program can be found in my book:

Dietary Cholesterol Produces Healthy Adrenal Hormones
Cholesterol is the precursor to the adrenal hormones cortisol, corticosterone, aldosterone, and androstenedione. A low-cholesterol diet disrupts the production of these essential hormones. The result is often called "adrenal burnout," with symptoms of constant fatigue that are not relieved by rest or sleep. Other common symptoms may include a craving for sweets, low blood pressure, and low blood sugar. Psychological symptoms may include depression, irritability, negativity, and an attitude of hopelessness. Adrenal burnout is also called adrenal hypo function, exhaustion, or insufficiency. The body's energy system is seriously disrupted. People with a low level of adrenal hormones may suffer from impaired digestion and be prone to infections. Adrenal burnout is seen more often in women than men because women tend to conform more closely to the low-cholesterol diet, low-fat diet guidelines.
Surprisingly diet is seldom targeted as the cause for low adrenal hormone production even though it is common among people eating a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet. It is especially prominent among vegetarians because their diet is typically ultra low-cholesterol and low-saturated fat but high in omega-6 vegetable fatty acids. These groups try to stimulate the adrenal gland with herbal products and Chinese medicine without success. The topics in vegetarian and Chinese medicine books show the extent of their unsuccessful struggle with adrenal burnout on the low-cholesterol, low-fat, low-calorie diet.
The high-cholesterol, high-fat diet supported here produces awesome adrenal hormone production. The positive effects of optimism, energy, and enthusiasm for life are achieved in a very short time. The symptoms of adrenal burnout are reversed within a few months. This achievement is obtained simply by eating the correct foods, mainly animal products.
Adrenal burnout, insufficiency, and adrenal fatigue are often misdiagnosed as "low metabolism." We see low-cholesterol, low-fat dieters consistently misdiagnosing their low level of adrenal hormones by thinking they have developed a "low-metabolism" problem. In actuality their extremely high-carbohydrate diet is already pumping an outrageous amount of blood glucose and insulin into the body. This high-glucose and high insulin diet should drive their metabolisms through the roof, but the adrenal hormone deficiency makes them feel like they are starving to death with no energy, depression, and a strong craving for more glucose in the form of sweets.
The adrenal gland and all cells of the body also require a broad list of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids; therefore, the diet must include supplementation of these dietary essentials in order to optimize health. The vegetarian diet is deficient in many vitamins, minerals, protein, cholesterol, and essential fatty acids. These deficiencies combined cause adrenal burnout.

Satan Attacks the Family Through the Woman
In the Bible Book of Genesis, Chapter 3, we read that Satan first temped the woman, Eve, to eat forbidden food from the tree in the middle of the Garden. She ate from the forbidden tree and lulled her husband, Adam, into believing Satan, disbelieving God, and dragging all humanity into sin. Adam and Eve were both punished for their gullibility and disobedience. They were thrown out of the Garden of Eden. God posted a guard at the entrance to prevent their return. They were separated spiritually from God. Adam was forced to strive for a living by the sweat of his brow. Eve could not be trusted as a leader because she was easily deceived. Therefore, the man was placed as head over the woman. She was cursed with pain during childbirth.
Satan is still working through the woman to destroy the family. Satan is still deceiving women about food and diet just as he did with Eve in the Garden of Eden. The wife has a lead role in the preparation of the meals for the family and making major decisions about diet. Satan continues to lie to the woman with false information about food, diet, and health.

The Latest News About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Trans Fats in the Diet "Can Increase the Risk of Infertility" - January 20 ,2007.
Hormone balance clue to bulimia - BBC News - January 8, 2007.
"The binge-eating disorder bulimia may, in some cases, be linked to a sex hormone imbalance, research suggests."
In this report the doctor incorrectly suggests that the bulimia, binge-eating disorder is caused by a hormone imbalance. This mistake was made because most doctors do not understand the close connection between diet and the balance of the sex hormones. The female subjects had a higher than normal level of testosterone that revealed itself in blood tests and male-like symptoms of facial hair growth. The true cause of bulimia is a high-carbohydrate, low-cholesterol, low-fat diet that causes hyper insulin resistance and a condition called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). The women have an imbalance of sex hormones because of the low-cholesterol diet. They are bulimic because it is an easy way for them to keep from gaining weight on the high-carbohydrate diet. The purging makes the hormone imbalance worse because cholesterol is purged along with the food that was eaten. Giving the women hormone therapy will not correct any of the problems. The cure is only possible by eating the diet presented here.
Pill that tricks you into losing weight - December 26, 2006.
"An obesity pill which can help women drop two dress sizes in a year has been hailed by scientists after stunning test results."
"A course of one a day could have a dramatic effect on quality of life and cut the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Many slimmers find that, after weeks of successfully losing weight, their metabolism slows down and they hit a plateau. With the pounds slower to come off, many lose their resolve and end up piling weight back on."
"Excalia gets round this by tricking the hypothalamus - the brain's weight and appetite thermostat - into keeping the metabolism running fast."
Don't expect this new drug to perform as claimed in the news report. Oh yes, the patient may indeed lose weight as claimed, but increasing the metabolism will increase blood glucose and blood insulin levels. These changes promote heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The news reporters make the mistake of assuming a reduction in weight equates to a reduction in the risks for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The drug will most likely cause an increase in insulin resistance that is a dangerous signal of impending incidences of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. A high metabolism is unhealthy. A low metabolism and ideal weight lead to the most healthy state, and that can only be achieved on a low-carbohydrate diet.

Low-Fat Diet Does Not Cut Health Risks, Study Finds. February 9, 2006.
This big study costing millions of dollars was a slam against the low-fat diet, but read the above report with caution. Some of the statements made about Dr. Robert C. Atkins are blatant lies. The article states, "Robert Atkins, keeled over weighing 258 lbs." These statements are lies. Dr. Robert C. Atkins was still caring for patients in his medical practice when he suffered a fatal head injury in an accidental fall on an icy sidewalk as he walked to work at age 72. He was healthy and trim at about 195 lbs. at the time of the accident. He never regained consciousness and suffered kidney failure before his death resulting in an excessive accumulation of body fluids. These lies are typical of those propagated by supporters of the low-fat diet dogma.
