Its so important to take inflammatory foods out of the diet to help with healing. Inflammation affects our hormones and the ability to lose weight. As well as affecting our over all health. #fitfam #stayhealthy #eatclean #pcos #inflammation #food

Do you suffer from inflammation & insulin resistance? I do and often I forget about some foods that agitate it and make it worse. If I’m not careful I will literally end up in bed the next day debilitated. Those foods I mentioned in the photo are the ones that effect me the most, everyone is different and different foods will effect everyone differently. It’s important to have a diet higher in omega 3’s as these are anti inflammatory and reduce the inflammation in the body. Omega 6 (while still good for us) are a inflammatory fatty acid. So make sure you diet is either balanced between the too 3/6 omegas or slightly higher in 3’s.
Diets high in sugars (any foods that covert to sugar in the body) & fats (saturated & trans and high omegas 6) produce over activity in the immune system. Leading to joint pain, fatigue & damage to blood vessels.
If I want to feel my best I have to stay on top of my diet, but sometimes I get into situation and I forgot I have these health issues and eat things I shouldn’t. I end up in bed the next day exhausted (insulin) and my inflammation is through the roof. Leaving me in agonizing pain and discomfort😣. To manage my symptoms, I take omega 3 fish caps, flax oil caps, boswellia and eat a clean whole diet and try to remember to stay away from the foods that aren’t good for me.
If you have joint pain or discomfort would like to hear from others and what you do to manage it😊.

Does anyone struggle with inflammation due to #PCOS and if so how do you deal with it. It affects me pretty bad in my neck, I see a massage therapist, chiro & take supplements (fish oil, boswellia to help with inflammation) but some times it’s just unbearable, would live to hear how you manage it😊 #inflammation #insulinresistance #neck #stiff #painful #headache #fitfam #pcoscyster #naturalpath #naturalhealing ❤️

PCOS: Affecting up to 10 percent of the population, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is the most common hormone dysfunction among women in their reproductive years. Because eggs are frequently not released, fertility is a problem. If pregnancy does occur, it often ends with first trimester miscarriage or is associated with gestational diabetes. The condition seems to run in families, with 20 percent of mothers and 40 percent of sisters of those with PCOS also demonstrating varying degrees of the syndrome.
With the approach of menopause, androgen production declines, and there is a more normal pattern of menstruation. If left untreated, PCOS can lead to cancer of the uterine lining. Women with PCOS also are at increased risk for development of Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension.
PCOS usually shows with coarse hair growth on the face and chest, and higher levels of male androgenic hormones, caused when the pituitary gland releases an excess of luteinizing hormone. Acne and oily skin are also evident. Ovaries are typically enlarged and contain multiple cysts. Symptoms often become apparent in puberty when menstruation is to begin: irregular menstrual periods with copious bleeding may occur, or PCOS can cause a lack of periods altogether. Infertility is a major concern of women with PCOS. #awareness #unbalancedhormones #educate #pcos #dontsuffer #naturalhealing #fitfam

I Still can’t believe I did this & best thing I ever did! I found my platform for inspiring me to keep working hard & improving my physic. I learned allot about my self through this experience and really had to come out of my shell at this photo shoot. I was so nervous and scared & I questioned why I was even doing it? But I pushed passed my fears and gained so much from the experience, I’m forever grateful. The only person I want to compete with is myself and when you do a photo shot it’s just you and the camera. These photos of me just inspire me to keep working hard, I needed that! I feel like all my hard work over the past 5 years was rewarded and captured on film. I don’t look like this obviously in every day life, but knowing that I can look like this with hair and makeup & a good photographer does wonders for the self esteem. My goal for next year is to do it all over again and I’m going to keep working hard and bring an even more fit me & experience to the lens.
