#210: Inflammation is like a forest fire within the body, affecting numerous systems and organs, while a team of firefighters fight to put out the flame.

Consequently, our bodies respond with symptoms like weight gain, bloating, headaches, IBS, and low energy levels. Chronic inflammation can be a big hindrance in seeing results in your PCOS journey but the good news is that there are effective strategies to lower inflammation and improve PCOS symptoms.

Dr. Shivani Gupta joins us to talk about the best strategies to effectively lower inflammation and alleviate the impact of PCOS on your body.

In this episode, Dr. Gupta covers lifestyle changes, including anti-inflammatory diets, and speaks on the impact of herbs and supplements on lowering inflammation.
