Our Emotions and Nutrition – Improved Living with PCOS

PCOS Challenge coaches Rebecca Mohning, RD and Ruth Wittersgreen, PhD speak about emotional health and good nutrition for PCOS.

Our emotional state can play a huge role in the decisions that we make. Depression, anxiety, body image and self esteem issues are things that many women with PCOS live with, and these can affect the way we choose to nourish our bodies. Rebecca Monhing and Dr. Ruth Wittersgreen share ways to improve nutritional and emotional balance.
