I grew up in the Midwest. (And with all the dairy benefits it has to offer) I was always a healthy child. But when I reached my teens I developed issues with my period. They put me on birth control, however how natural is a 14 year old on the pill? I went crazy. I went off it and tried several remedies. However nothing really worked. Finally about two years ago I read the symptoms of PCOS, and realized I had it. I then discovered the raw diet, and how it has helped so many take care of this issue. I have been attempting that lifestyle for a long time. I haven't quite succeeded, but I hope that with support on this website, and many others, that I will be a energetic and healthy person very soon.
