This week in the Transformational Personal Growth Podcast I spoke with Sophie Manolas on her own personal story; from being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome at 19 years old, to dealing with the weight gain and subsequent trouble she had during treatment. After being prescribed the oral contraceptive pill, Sophie had to deal with extreme mood swings and weight gain and eventually a blood clot in her lungs would land her in ICU. Sophie's story is inspiring in that rather than feeling powerless over her body, and going with the doctors diagnosis of it being an incurable condition, Sophie began her own research - eventually becoming a fully qualified nutritionist and managing her Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome through diet and lifestyle alone.
Sophie is now devoted to helping other women overcome a number of issues through diet and lifestyle - at her website www.theediblepharmacy.com and has just released her first book 'The Essential Edible Pharmacy'.
