    At Charlotte’s Book, we’re in awe of anyone who takes control of their life, health, and well-being—especially when the results are as dramatic as Nicole Granato‘s, a Charlotte’s Book Expert Holistic Nutritionist.  She suffered severe hormone imbalances in her early twenties, and doctors weren’t helping: as a newly-trained nutritionist, she took matters into her own hands, determined to re-align her body. Charlotte’s Book: How were you diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?   Nicole Granato: I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 22, from what was supposed to be a general check up. Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome a disorder in which women generally have a hormonal imbalance, irregular periods, weight gain, cysts on one or both ovaries, and, because of hormonal imbalance, significant effects on appearance, including severe acne and accentuated body/facial hair. I decided to take a holistic health approach, and this is what happened: I have always been what I would call healthy.
