Episode Summary

Despite being a naturopathic doctor herself, Dr. Fiona McCulloch’s PCOS went undiagnosed for 15 years. Once she realized the root cause of her PCOS, Dr. Fiona felt compelled to share this information with the 1 in 5 women in the world who also suffer from this common endocrine- disrupting syndrome.

It can take the average woman 5-12 years to finally gain a PCOS diagnosis. But that’s not the end of the story. Even then, they may not fully understand their specific type of PCOS or how to best support their recovery journey. Dr. Fiona is here to assist you on your path to diagnosis and help you become aware of what you need to look out for when it comes to conventional medicine. 

By helping women in the discovery process, Dr. Fiona is determined to help you get to the root cause of your PCOS and find a treatment that works for your individual body.
