Yes, the same weed in your garden can REALLY help your PCOS. You’re going to want Dandelion tea to be a part of your PCOS diet this Spring for several reason. Women with PCOS have a keen awareness to the cycles and rhythms of the Earth whether they know it or not. Before you quit reading thinking this is some Earthy, flower loving article let me explain why Dandelion Tea is good for your PCOS diet, especially during Spring.

How Is PCOS Related To Earth Cycles & Rhythms?

Yes, women who have PCOS have an inner awareness of the cycles and circadian rhythms that make up this Earth. Those are the same rhythms that help us react to night and day, sleeping and waking, seasonal changes, essentially our inner clocks. These rhythms are mainly controlled by the release of hormones. Do you think women with PCOS have a grasp on paying attention to hormones? I know I do! And you’re probably learning of it’s importance, too.

Need more convincing? Have you ever noticed that you gain more weight during the winter months or seem to lose weight faster  and easier during the warmer months? Maybe you have more energy during the warmer months, too. Perhaps these are coincidences. I’m asking you to consider the fact that we are more in tune with Earth cycles than you might realize. You’re hungrier during winter because your body instinctively knows to eat more and hang on to fat to keep warm. There are REAL reasons why these occurances happen to us and I believe that women with PCOS are acutely more aware of these cycles and rhythms. If you’re interested in learning more about how these cycles and rhythms affect PCOS, please contact Becky.

So, Why Is Dandelion Tea Good For PCOS

Our bodies go through a specific set of changes as we transition from season to season. Coming out of winter and into Spring is an especially important transition because of the need to detox. Have you ever wondered why we use the phrase ‘spring cleaning?’ During the winter months, our bodies go into storage mode. Spring is a natural time to detox our ‘hibernation’ mode. During this time it is essential to be cleansing our bodies by removing waste from the liver, kidneys and skin. This is especially important to women with PCOS because of the anti-inflammatory effects detoxing can have. Dandelion is a key ingredient in spring detox.
