The White Lotus Naturopathic PCOS Program

At White Lotus we understand that those with PCOS have unique nutritional requirements. This is not news to you though, as many of you have struggled to alter your body composition with diet, after diet. We understand that the simple instructions to, ‘lose 20 lbs’ are not that simple for you, and that you are trying!

Even in those with lean PCOS, you know that your diet can have a huge impact on your symptoms. That is why we have established the Naturopathic PCOS program, designed by Dr. Fiona McCulloch, that is aimed at symptoms control, and weight loss, specifically for women with PCOS. The goal of the program is to improve insulin resistance, and decrease inflammation. These are the first pivotal steps outlined in Dr. Fiona’s latest book, 8 Steps to Reverse your PCOS.

This is not a fad diet! This is a lifestyle program that we are thrilled to help you begin! Our Five Step program includes dietary interventions that are customized to each person’s individual needs.

There are vegetarian plans available.

In addition to this, we coach patients to engage in a modest exercise program, lifestyle modifications and targeted supplementation. Every step of the program involves tracking your progress and making sure that you are moving towards your goals!

What to Expect

Each of our Naturopathic Doctors are trained in the McCulloch PCOS Program. When visiting any of our practitioners the outline of the program remains the same.
