Polycystic ovary syndrome or Disorder (PCOS/PCOD) is a condition that affects a woman’s hormone
levels. Women with PCOD produce higher-than-a-normal amounts of male hormones. This hormone
imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes it harder for them to get pregnant.
PCOS also causes hair growth on the face and body and baldness. And it can contribute to long-term health problems like diabetes and heart disease. Birth control pills and diabetes drugs can help fix the hormone imbalance and improve symptoms.
PCOS needs early treatment and long-term management for avoiding long-term complications. PCOS treatment in Ayurveda recommends Nasya, Virechana (Detoxification), Shirodhara, and Uttar Basti for PCOD along with Diet and lifestyle modification. We at Parathuvayalil Ayurveda Hospital have a very systematic approach in treating the disease; we plan and provide a customized treatment for each individual which is specific to their symptoms.
The exact cause of PCOS/PCOD is unknown but it may be relating to abnormal hormone levels.
