A Hi there,

As with every dis-ease (including PCOS) our emotions play such an integral part. It's said that 'our emotions kick-start our genes'.

I feel for your niece and the whole family. I admire you for reaching out and seeking advice in ways that can be very easily combined with the more 'well known' medical systems.

I'm a Complementary Therapist who has been using Kinesiology techniques for the past 20years to approach life's issues.

If you would like to consider having a complimentary 15 minute chat, with absolutely no obligations, I would be happy to speak to you about possible approaches.

Feel free to call me on 021 88 36 89 or email me at

Warm wishes, Judith Paterson.
