Polycystic Ovaries: How to Treat Pcos Naturally Without Side Effects?
The ideal way to cure PCOS!
PCOS otherwise known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome affects many young women of varied age groups in the world today. This condition that has become so common is often attributed to the stressful lives women lead today. I wish to share with you a personal story of how I was able to find an existing cure for this ailment for my life partner who suffered from PCOS. After a lot of research, I stumbled upon a possible cure, which turned out to be very effective and cured my life partner of this affliction.
Watching her happiness after so many failed attempts to find a cure, made me realize that there were a lot of women out there struggling with the same issue. When I started sharing details of this cure in the form of a simple Ayurvedic medication in my blog, my inbox became flooded with emails from different people suffering from the same issue. Below is the gist of one such email I received.
Are you suffering from PCOS? If yes, for how many months
The Case of a 26-Year-Old with PCOS
"I am also suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome plus hirsutism. I am a 26-year-old woman, height 5 feet 5 inches, current weight is 70 kg, and my periods were regular, but just some months before my marriage, my periods started getting delayed and two months after my marriage, I skipped my periods for the first time.
I consulted a gynecologist in New Delhi and she advised me to take Glyciphage (generic Glucophage) three times a day for diabetes, Asmita (one at night), Finast (generic name finasteride) once a day, and Aldactone once a day. I continued this treatment for around twelve to thirteen months and then due to pressure from family members against taking so many pills at a time, I discontinued this therapy at the end of March 2010.
After that, I have had two periods, one in April on time, one in May got delayed by 5 days, and one in June failed to happen. However, I just noted here in your thread that my golgappa intake had increased incredibly during the last two months. I will control that. Also, I have moved to Bangalore, so I need to consult a doctor there. I was wondering about an Ayurvedic doctor in Bangalore for some personal consultation regarding PCOS. I started my earlier treatment in February 2009 and at that time my weight was 74.5 kg and then I reduced my weight to 65 kg, but after discontinuation of pills, it swung back between 66.5 to 68 kg. Right now it is 70 kg”
Cure For PCOS
Most of the emails I received on the subject more or less stated the same issue. Detailed below is my response to this email - Ayurvedic medicine has a long-term cure for this problem. You can take Menstricare Evecare available from Himalaya Healthcare. If you are having amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) beyond 50 days to 60 days, you need to do the nagkesar method mentioned in my previous article on PCOS. As soon as you start your periods, begin taking Evecare ayurvedic syrup for at least three months. Always remember you need to consume this syrup for at least three months (as mentioned on the bottle) for getting the desired results. Also, you can try Menstricare veg capsules which have the same effect as Evecare syrup. You can buy Menstricare Evecare veg caps from Amazon online store. You can also buy Evecare from an Ayurvedic drug store in your area.
Himalaya Menstricare is highly recommended for your menstrual problems
Do remember that no medicine in the world will help with PCOS if your weight is not in the ideal range. You need to keep your weight gain under control as women with PCOS always tend to gain weight. When I say control weight gain, I don’t mean that you should go on a crash diet and start skipping meals. This will only compound the problem you are facing. You need to focus on weight loss by following a balanced diet and an effective exercise plan. Some yoga asanas like various pranayama when done in a relaxed environment will help calm the symptoms of PCOD. Other breathing exercises beneficial in countering the effects of PCOD are mild kapalabhatti, anuloma-viloma, and ujjayi. Some women who switched to a sattvic diet and practiced yoga have also found it beneficial.
The Dilemma of Allopathic Medicine
Regarding the intake of allopathic medicine, most women face the same dilemma as you did. Up until the time you keep taking hormone replacement medicines, your periods will be regular but when you stop these medicines, slowly your periods will start becoming irregular and in severe conditions, absent. This condition is known as amenorrhea or absence of menstruation. Amenorrhea is a difficult condition to suffer from especially for married women who are trying to get pregnant. This is the case because ovulation does not happen in women suffering from amenorrhea. When there is no ovulation one cannot get pregnant. This condition is termed as infertility caused by amenorrhea. Usually, allopathic medication would involve hormone replacement therapy, where the hormonal imbalance in women suffering from this condition is attempted to be corrected by inducing ovulation. Unfortunately as discussed this only offers a short term solution.
Controlling Weight Gain
An effective tip for controlling weight is eating high fiber, low-fat diet. This means you need to include fresh salads, lots of vegetables and greens, sprouts, and seasonal fruits in your diet. Also, you need to avoid full cream milk and its derivatives like excess butter or ghee. Put a hold on golgappas as mentioned in my previous article. Apart from the spicy tangy flavored juices that golgappa is served with, the golgappa by itself is deep-fried. It is best to avoid all forms of fried and fatty foods in your diet to help you gain better control over your weight. I know doing this can be challenging especially giving up comfort foods like golgappas but remember if there no pain, there is no gain.
