PCOS Recipe Booklet

  • Medical information to help further your understanding of PCOS and how to manage symptoms 
  • Lifestyle modification that someone with PCOS can make in areas such as exercise, skincare, and food storage 
  • Supplement and herb suggestions 

 

It has been shown that nutrition and lifestyle factors can make a significant impact on those with a Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) diagnosis, which is why our team has created this booklet. The booklet combines Dr. Lana Butner’s naturopathic medical expertise and Lindley Wells’ functional nutrition knowledge of PCOS and their extensive experience helping to manage this condition in individuals over the years.

 

We have crafted and tested each recipe in the book and created the recipes guided by the following tenants: blood sugar balance, low glycemic, adequate and healthy sources of protein and fat, anti- inflammatory, rich in fiber, and incorporating foods rich in omega 3s, vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, vitamin c, and alpha lipoic acid.
