Ayurvedic Treatment for PCOS
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects a woman’s hormone levels. It affects 1 in 10 women. It is a condition in which patients have multiple cysts in their ovaries that occur due to disruption in the normal menstrual cycle. Ovaries get enlarged and produce excess amounts of androgen and estrogen. These hormones interfere with the growth and release of the eggs from the ovaries leading to anovulatory cycles and irregular menstruation. Ayurvedic Treatment For PCOS observes the disease looking for indications of the dosha responsible for the disorder.
Ayurveda does not speak in the terms of “hormones”. It has its own unique language and terminologies. Hormones are considered as fire elements in the tissue. Ayurveda classifies PCOS as a kapha disorder, and by looking at the findings of modern medicine we can correlate the exhibiting features of the disease with the dominate dosha responsible for the disorder.
The treatment of PCOS involves the use of herbs to boost fertility and maintain a balance of hormones. Treatment will depend on the cause of the problems with one’s menstrual cycle. Ayurveda is a holistic therapy that can be used alongside conventional medicine.
