  • PCOS reading

    Hi!!!

    Sorry to those who think I am posting PCOS reading resources here - rather I am asking for them. (And not stefani ruper's pcos book... I tried her birth control book when it was on sale for like 5$ and I can honestly say it wasn't even worth that).

    Any books or websites would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

      SoulCysters.net is great resource. The message board is packed full of any topic related to PCOS you can think of.

      There is also a soulcysters.com but that does not appear to be functioning site at this time, at least for me.

        Lyss,

        We have many testimonials for women who have cured their PCOS naturally. PCOS is just one of many diseases caused by severe iodine deficiency. Hypothyroid, fibrocystic breasts, uterus problems & brain fog are all related to iodine deficiency. Men also suffer iodine deficiency with Prostate problems & low testosterone. Testimonials here:

          There is no cure for PCOS at this time. Anyone who tells you they have a cure is selling snake oil. Symptoms are treated as necessary as it is slightly different in every woman. Hopefully, soon, there will be an actual cure for it.

          Taking massive amounts of iodine is dangerous, especially for people with certain thyroid conditions.

          Adding iodine naturally through diet is much less likely to cause iodine poisoning. Here is an article that discusses how to get it naturally and how much is needed.

          Iodine in diet: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia

          Most women do best on a vlc/lc diet, under 100 grams of carb a day but everyone is different. Eating lower carb appears to help with long term issues as well but there are no scientific studies on it that I could find.

            VH67,

            Your extreme negativism is interesting in view of the many women on this board who have cured their iodine deficiency disease, as I detailed in the testimonials in my previous message. All of these women would wonder what you are smoking.


            Be careful what you read on the internet, there are gross lies & distortions designed to frighten people & boost the sale of expensive drugs. I suggest that you focus on reports from qualified Doctors Abraham, Brownstein, Cousens, Flechas, Derry, Davis, & Tenpenny for honest & accurate information about iodine. Google Search for doctorsName iodine.

            You should also review the Front Page at Dr. Buists Yahoo Iodine web site.
            Yahoo Groups
            where many thousands of women report being cured of their iodine deficiency symptoms with iodine, including PCOS.

            Who do you think you are you to call of of these experienced doctors a liar ???

            Who do you think you are to denigrate Dr. Buists tireless sacrifices to keep her Yahoo Iodine group operational for so many years.

            You are always attacking messages and acting like a TROLL.

              Grizz, I feel that it's important to point out the your links to testimonials on Iodine link to Gravyboat's testimonial on using raw adrenals for adrenal fatigue. She mentions nowhere the use of iodine. You also linked to some of Pebbles' posts, but she specifically states in one of them that she is not a good example for iodine use. I don't doubt that it works for some people, but I don't think it's a cure-all, which is what your posts make it sound like.

              Disagreeing with someone is not being a troll.

                She is disagreeing with multiple doctors, which I have listed. Does she think she knows more than the many Doctors I've listed?

                As usual, we can agree to disagree. If I have a choice to listen to multiple doctors or to VH67's never ending negativism, I would choose the doctors every time.

                  Yes, we can disagree, but I was not talking about the doctors, just the testimonials.

                      Grizz,

                      I am not a troll, I am a woman with PCOS that is stating a FACT: There is no cure for PCOS.

                      You are being dishonest by telling women that you have the magic cure for it. I find what you are doing very offensive and harmful.

                      Some women living with PCOS, especially those dealing with infertility, are looking for anything to make things better. I went through more than 10 years of infertility treatment without success and I was willing to try anything to get pregnant. I am not telling them to not try increasing their intake of iodine, I am not telling them to do anything but be cautious with your flim flam advice. If they want to explore the use of iodine, they should but hopefully they will use the common sense that you do not appear to possess. I make sure that I have iodine rich food in my diet. I think we should use whole foods to get our nutrients when possible and supplement with the lowest dosages necessary when we can't get something from our diet.

                      Iodine in excess is harmful. Iodine in proper doses is necessary for good health. There may be therapeutic doses in excess of what is considered normal that works for some people but care should be used in prescribing it to everyone for everything.

                      I would not trust anyone, MD or not, that claimed to have a cure for PCOS without plenty of scientific research to support their cure. So yes, if the doctors you are referring to are saying that Iodine is a cure for PCOS, then they are frauds and liars. Simple as that.

                      I hope that they do find a cure for PCOS or even figure out what causes it so no one has to go what I went through. Until you have something other than hokum, snake oil or a zealot's believe in the powers of the iodine god, maybe you should stop trying to actively harm people.

                      And no, we can not agree to disagree because this is actual science, not a political debate. And I will continue to be "negative" when false information about PCOS is posted. Most people who have been around for a while know that Grizz is a filbert but I want new people to understand what he says is false.

                        I was actually looking at your various other testimonials for Iodine curing various ailments. As I said, you link to various MDA posts that do not actually say in any sense, "Iodine cured my [insert problem]". In fact, most are saying, "I'm trying iodine, here goes nothing!" but don't say it helped, one flat out says, "I am not a good example of how to use Iodine", and another has nothing to do with Iodine at all. You may want to review the links within the document for context. But that is a little off-topic.

                        The ones under PCOS look like they link to posts that actually say iodine worked for the post in some respect, so that's good anyway.

                          VH67,

                          You are not a doctor, so your never ending negativism is falling on deaf ears. I'm not wasting time with you. If you want advice on taking Iodine supplements I'll be happy to help. For those reading this thread, make up your own minds.There are 2 ways to treat iodine deficiency disease. The expensive way with drugs & surgery & the natural way with iodine supplements.

                          Here is all the research with links to qualified doctors & testimonials:
