Q: I am a 30 year old female suffering from AFS and also excessive facial hair on my face due to PCOS. Is there anything natural I can do to reduce the hair on my face?
 

A: It is not as simple as taking something natural. You need to look deeper into the connection between the ovary and adrenal glands. In women, there is a strong relationship among the ovarian, adrenal, and thyroid systems. These three organs are intimately co-dependent on one another for optimal function. This axis, also called the Ovarian Adrenal and Thyroid axis (OAT) must be correctly balanced if a woman is going to feel well. If the adrenals are weak, cortisol production may be adversely affected. One of the undesirable consequences is excessive production of testosterone, which in turn can trigger hair loss on the head and excessive hair growth on the face. Focusing your energy on adrenal support remains the most effective way to reduce testosterone load in the body and ultimately will help with normalizing hair growth on your face.
