In brief: Not really

Pcos is a complex disorder involving Insulin resistance (pre-diabetes), hyperandrogenism (too much male-type hormones like testosterone) and changes in the ovaries.
There are no well-proven herbal remedies, although i only searched studies reported in english. Women with pcos have more thyroid problems, but this has not been linked to lack of iodine - a mineral not a herbal unless seaweed counts.

In brief: Insulin resistance

Pcos is frequently associated with, and perhaps in part caused by Insulin resistance, a pre-diabetic condition.
Treating this can help to reverse pcos. Exercise and healthy diet are the cornerstones of treating Insulin resistance. There are some herbs that can be helpful too - cinnamon, gymnema, bitter melon, for example. Other supplements to consider are Alpha lipoic acid and chromium.

In brief: Lack of Iodine

Lack of iodine causes polycystic ovaries - so take 13.
8mg of iodine available as iodizyme with biotics and also nac to clear chemicals from liver that aggrates this issue.
