My name is Melissa and I'm 23 yrs old. I was diagnosed with PCOS 2 years ago in 2004. I was 21 yrs old. I probably had it for 3 years because the doctor's couldn't find what was wrong with me until I was diagnosed in 2004. I had gained 60lbs in 6 months, I had cystic acne, chest hair, and I was skipping my period every 3-4 months. Having fertility problems at 21 yrs old is scary. I though I'd never be able to have a baby. The doctor's prescribed me with many medications including birth control. Unfortunately, after never taking any pills in my life, I was allergic to all the medications my doctor tried to prescribe me. I thought there was no hope. Being told this disease was incurable, I became very depressed with no hope. Then, hope came to me. My finance had told me that his father that lives in South America has cured many people from deadly incurable diseases such as cancer and diabetes. Having no other option, I contacted him. He told me that he can guarantee that he could cure me but it wouldn't be easy. He had told me that everything we put in our bodies effects whatever we get out such as diseases. Toxins that are put in food cause diseases. He told me I would have to detox my body from all the toxins. He put me on a strict organic way of life. I say was of life because it's not a diet, it's the way we should eat. He bought me a juicer and told me that I would have to juice fresh fruits and vegetable that were organic (no toxins or pesticides). The detox juice was this: 5 large carrots, 1 beet, 1 cucumber, 2 stalks of celery, and 1 apple for taste. I had to drink this juice every 3 hours for 3 weeks. NO FOOD! It was the hardest thing I ever had to do but if it had chances of curing me, I didn't even complain. The juice provided my body with all the nutrients it needed while it gave my digestive system a break after working so hard all these years. It allowed my body to detox from all toxins and help nurture my cells. The first 3 days were the hardest because my body was going through withdrawals from all the junk food I was eating. After that, it wasn't so bad, I was used to it. The worst part about this whole process was cleaning the juicer after every juice. Now remember, I had only 10 minutes to drink the juice after making it because after that, it starts losing nutrients. Just like when you cut an apple and it starts turning brown because it's losing nutrients.
After the 3 weeks, I continued doing the same juices but mixing different fruits and vegetables. I would make a nice fruit juice in the morning and vegetable juices for the rest of the day. The only thing I would eat is a salad filled with organic vegetables for lunch. On the 5th week of juicing, I got my menstrual cycle. After that, I was getting it every 28 days, and all my other symptoms disappeared. I also lost 23 lbs and I'm still on my way to losing more weight as long as I exercise more. I feel great.
When I went back to the doctor for an ultrasound, she said my ovaries are perfectly normal and she couldn't find any signs of PCOS. She was amazed and didn't know what to say. She had no explanation for how this could have happened but I did. There are so many great books out there that can help. Books by Norman W. Walker are the best. His best book is "Vegetarian Guide to Diet and Salad".
I hope that whoever reads this will try this is you're tired of doctors and taking medication. Just think, you have nothing to lose (except weight and your symptoms) and it's completely safe because you're getting all the nutrients your body needs.
