PCOS is one of the major causes of infertility in women, which is accompanied by other issues like obesity, menstrual irregularity, etc. As the name suggests, cysts are found in the ovaries of women suffering from this syndrome. Some of the evident symptoms of the same include loss of hair, pan around the neck, irregular periods, hormonal abnormalities, etc. There are various strong medications available for creating this issue. However, due to fluctuations like high amounts of male hormone testosterone i.e. Hyperandrogenism; LH- Luteinizing hormone imbalance and other fluctuations make medical treatments rather complicated.
In this reference, ayurvedic procedures are not only safe but effective in the long run. The process usually involves-
Basti - In this process, a medicated oil or decoction is provided through the rectum. It aids in releasing the vitiated Vata and helps to improve ovulation functions.
Uttarbasti - This ayurvedic process is known to treat multiple gynecological issues along with purifying the ovaries. It has helped treat the issue of PCOD by injecting purifying oils into the uterus and ovaries.
Virechan - Through this process, detoxification of the pitta takes place by using ayurvedic alternatives that cleanse the ovaries, intestine and also help in faster explosion of these cysts.
Vaman - This is a cleansing procedure that is focussed on the excretion of vitiated ‘Kapha’. It is a painless procedure where a drug is induced via emetic modes to purify the internal toxins. Doing so also balances the hormonal system and stimulates pancreas for reducing symptoms of PCOD/ PCOS.
