PCOS or Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome is now one of the major hormonal disorders affecting the reproductive health of women. It is an endocrine system disorder. It simply means that it is a problem created by hormonal activity.
Most women with PCOS have many small cysts in their ovaries. Even though, these cysts do not harm you directly, they create hormonal imbalances in your blood. One hormone change triggers another, which changes another – likewise, forming a troublesome cycle. It is this cycle that creates pain and menstrual issues in you.
“It is found that 1 in every 5 women today have PCOS.” It is also one of the major issues truly degrading the quality of life and self-esteem of a woman. Ayurveda have many natural solutions to address PCOS issues without any side effects!
PCOS is a health problem a female experience during her reproductive age and it triggers a plethora of signs and symptoms. Signs and symptoms of PCOS vary and they often develop around the time of the first menstrual period during puberty. Sometimes PCOS develops later, for example, in response to substantial weight gain.
The most common symptoms are irregular menses, skin pigmentation especially around the neck, weight gain, hair loss, acne, unwanted facial hairs, elevated blood sugar levels, digestive disorders like flatulence and bloating, infertility etc.
Ayurveda believes that three ‘doshas’ or forces of energy – vata, pitta and kapha – circulate in the body and facilitate important bodily functions. In healthy individuals, all three doshas are in perfect harmony. According to Ayurveda, any imbalance in the three forces of energies can lead to diseases.
Ayurvedic texts mention the presence of shukra dhatu (semen) in both men and women. Shukra dhatu plays a vital role in maintaining the health of the reproductive system. Shukradhatu can be considered as a combination of androgen (male hormone) and estrogen (female hormone). Any imbalance in Shukra dhatu can cause infertility.
An imbalance in the doshas can affect the efficiency of the Shukra dhatu. When “doshas” affect the efficiency of the Shukra dhatu in women, it leads to excess production of male hormones and other symptoms of PCOS such as the appearance of cysts in the ovaries.
PCOS benefit from holistic Ayurveda treatment, without experiencing the side effects of allopathic medicines prescribed for the condition. It often combines treatment with effective Ayurvedic herbs and therapies along with strict diet and exercise regimen or Yoga asanas.
One of the best things about Ayurveda is that it gives you different paths of treatment to choose from. So, you don’t have to solely rely on ayurvedic medicines for PCOS to be cured.
