PCOS | Endometriosis | Painful Periods | Check out Protocol

Check out Episode 36 on PCOS now!


PCOS, painful cycles, and endometriosis are common problems for many women. There are a number of things you can do to reduce the side effects and pain associated with these conditions. I have created a new, simple protocol to help you take back control over your own pain, and I guarantee it is likely something you have never done in your entire life.

Some of the issues associated with PCOS include:

- Excessive hair loss

- Ovarian cysts

- Irregular periods

- Missed periods

- High testosterone

- Insulin resistance

- Fatigue

- Acne

PSCO endometriosis symptoms painful periods

Endometriosis can include symptoms such as:

- Pelvic pain

- Infertility

- Excessive bleeding

- Constipation

- Nausea

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms or conditions, just know that there is hope to get better. It’s just a matter of using a plan to find the root cause of that pain.

Blood Sugar and Inflammation

There is a direct relationship between blood sugar and inflammation, and therefore a relationship between blood sugar and PCOS, endometriosis, and painful periods.

The protocol we will be talking about is all about tracking your blood sugar levels, and correlating it to your pain levels. We want to make sure your levels are in very consistent ranges, ideally in a range I call the “sweet spot.”

This is not simply my own opinion. There has been a lot of recent research showing this correlation and improvement. You can find these studies at the end of the article.[1]

Ideal blood sugar levels can be as low as 70, or as high as 120. The sweet spot ranges from 80 to 100. Blood sugar fluctuates largely after meals, but can also become an issue when fasting.

For this protocol I have developed, you’ll need to check your blood sugar several times a day. If you are lower than 80, you start to become hypoglycemic, which can cause inflammation. High blood sugar levels cause high insulin levels, which similarly causes inflammation. This fluctuation up and down can cause your body to be in a pro-inflammatory state.

Again, this inflammation can contribute to PCOS, endometriosis, and painful periods.

In a normal day, as you eat food you go up and down. But if you eat some food causing a spike in blood sugar (say, up to 140 or 150), you also have a large drop. This drop causes you to eat more, which causes another spike and another drop, possibly creating a hypoglycemic pattern.

This pattern is dangerous, and causes chronic inflammation.
