Natural Treatment For Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) In Melbourne
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a complicated hormonal disorder characterised by a group of symptoms, primarily multiple cystic growths on the ovaries, high levels of male hormones and irregular periods.
Women with PCOS experience issues with weight, body hair, periods and fertility due to this hormonal imbalance as well as a variety of other symptoms, depending on the individual
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition, present in 12–21% of women of reproductive age. Unfortunately, up to 70% of women with PCOS remain undiagnosed and many who do receive a diagnosis feel they are not listened to or aren’t taken seriously when it comes to polycystic syndrome treatments.
There is no cure for PCOS as such, but natural treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome can alleviate symptoms, increase the chances of fertility and aid in overall wellbeing.
Common Signs and Symptoms of PCOS
- Multiple cysts causing enlargement of the ovaries, often 2-3 times their normal size.

- Hirsutism (Excess facial hair)
- Central obesity – “apple” body shape with fat distributed above the waist
- Metabolic syndrome
- Infertility, generally resulting from chronic anovulation (lack of ovulation)
- Elevated male hormones, especially testosterone

Firstly, I would like to thank Linda for all her help and support the last couple of years. She has been so amazing and helpful and such a caring person. I first came to see Linda on the 26th of August 2014, after being referred to by a family friend of ours, who was in a similar situation to mine. Prior to seeing Linda, my periods were quite irregular to sometimes having no periods at all. I was on birth control pills for a couple of years, so didn’t notice anything was wrong. My husband and I were trying to conceive in the year 2014, after getting off the birth control pills and were unsuccessful. Due to the irregularities, it was hard to determine when I was ovulating. Tests revealed that I had PCOS. Linda was so helpful & educated me on PCOS. She was there for me at a time when I was feeling down and discouraged. Through the use of various herbal remedies and vitamins and minerals, my period started to become regular and I was ovulating. In January of 2015, my husband and I found out that I was 3 weeks pregnant. We were so overjoyed and thankful. When I told Linda, she was so happy and excited for us. She immediately altered my supplements so my baby was getting the right nutrients. We had a healthy baby girl in October of 2015. Linda helped me rebalance my body naturally. She is very dedicated to helping people and I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone.D Polizzi
Linda helped me to achieve a miracle – naturally …. I was heading down a dark path brought about by bad food choices and my body (hormones) was totally out of whack! In April of this year, a Doctor discovered a cyst on my ovary and also uncovered that I had a hormonal imbalance resulting in endometriosis + lack of ovulation. I chose to have the cyst surgically removed and during a post-surgery consult the Specialist advised that moving forward I would need to take hormonal medication to stimulate ovulation. This saddened me and disturbed me – I felt like my body had let me down and I was sceptical about the need to take synthetic drugs. I asked the Specialist if I should cut out alcohol, coffee, certain foods (meat, dairy, wheat, etc), – he said no, none of that has ever been proven to help!! Well, it was at that moment I walked out and chose to not go back instead I headed straight to Linda who calmly and with conviction advised that she would be able to assist me… naturally. And she did. By following a healthy and well-balanced diet and swapping alcohol for natural herbs, coffee for probiotics, and sugar, wheat, dairy, for natural supplements, my hormones rebalanced within a month resulting in a menstrual cycle decreasing from 35days to 29 followed by the best result is in June – pregnancy. Doesn’t get much better than that…. I HIGHLY recommend Linda to help rebalance our bodies naturally and put you back on the healthy path your belong…Kristyn Park
When I was 24 I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) and told I might not be able to have children. I knew that I was ovulating about once a year at the very most. At the age of 34, my partner and I decided we would love to have children so I went to see Linda Cotone get some help with my fertility. However, I also had Irritable Bowel Syndrome with a tendency towards weight loss and weighed only 45 kilos after a recent trip to South America. Through the use of various herbal remedies and vitamins and minerals, Linda helped me gain 6 kilos in 3 months. Once I gained the weight Linda changed my herbal remedy and fertility program to help get me ovulating. I was very surprised that within 4 days of taking the herbal remedy I was ovulating. I was even more surprised when we conceived on our first try. We now have a beautiful, healthy baby boy (and I am still 51 kilos) thanks to Linda!E LANE
I came to Linda at a time where I was feeling unhealthy, overweight and had been trying to conceive my second child for a year. I knew that I had a hormone imbalance but Linda also helped me to identify other issues with my health. By working on my health issues holistically I was able to see great results. I was always exhausted and generally feeling bad and stressed. I was one of those people that were eating ok (mostly healthy) and exercising moderately yet still wasn’t seeing results in my health at all. I went to Linda for help as I was struggling to find a way to improve my weight as well as fall pregnant. Over the following 14 weeks, Linda helped me with my weight loss (lost 15kg) all up as well as help me understand which foods to eat, how much, how often and what they do to my body. This understanding is what really helped me get through times when I did feel like giving up but it would only last a moment because I was seeing such wonderful results. My husband started the program also and that helped us both lose weight and support each other. I also starting to feel calmer and was able to handle stressful situations easier. I haven’t felt this energetic and healthy in years!
Lastly, 14 weeks later I did manage to conceive and now expecting baby number 2. Linda has also been a support for me through my pregnancy and all my test results keep showing how much my health has improved since my first pregnancy. And it shows, I feel much less nauseous and sick this time around. Although I’m right at the business end of the pregnancy, I know that when I do need to lose the excess weight gained during this time, I have the knowledge and the support to do it all again! Linda is my health practitioner that I see for all my health concerns and will continue to do so.Elena
After a miscarriage and 10months of trying to get pregnant, my husband and I started worrying and thinking the only option for us would be IVF if we were to have a successful chance of getting pregnant. My last bid before looking into IVF was to try some natural therapy, which my husband was sceptical of at the time but I felt like it was something I needed to do.
I met with Linda and she listened to my needs and came up with a tailored detox plan specifically designed to help me reach optimum health and achieving my goal of getting pregnant. After a few weeks of detoxing I noticed a significant difference in the way I felt, my energy levels were up and I felt really healthy, I actually remember saying to my husband one morning ‘I can’t believe how good I feel, I feel like my insides are smiling!!’Within 6 weeks of my initial visit to Linda I was pregnant, I couldn’t believe it! She was one of the first people we told our good news to and she immediately altered my detox plan so the baby was getting the right nutrients needed in the 1st trimester. I now have 9 weeks to go and we can not wait to meet our beautiful healthy baby.
Thank you, Linda, you truly have given us the greatest gift of all.Linda A
