Polycystic ovariandisease… as perhomoeopathicconcept ofdisease………. its adisease of women notof ovaries…
Clinically PCOD has became such a common problemnow a days that every 7th or 8th girl appearing in gynacclinics is having PCOD.The major concern of the sufferer are irregular/delayed menses, obesity and infertility.Most of the pts come to homoeopath after taking longcontinued hormonal treatment with temporary/ partialrelief , sometimes they come after surgical removal ofcysts( electro coagulation / laparoscopic laserpunctured of cyst)without much relief in previouscomplaints.Hormonal and surgical management makes the ptsinternal equilibrium worst because it works likesuppressive treatment and disease becomecomplicated and complexed.This happens because of lack of awareness in generalpopulation regarding scope of hpathy in such cases..
Introduction PCOD was originally described in 1935 by stein & leventhal as a syndrome manifested by secondary amenorrhea, hursuitism and obesity associated with enlarged polycystic ovaries This complex disorder is characterized by excessive androgen production by ovaries which interferes with the growth of ovarian follicles, therefore PCOD is a state of androgen excess and chronic anovulation.

The factcalled "polycystic ovaries is that, as we have already said, both thesyndrome" constitutes a functional ovaries and the hypothalamic-pituitaryand hormonal disorder frequently function are deeply altered, creating afound in gynecologic practice. vicious circle. Besides the functionalThough fundamentally caused by disturbance, the ovaries also exhibitseveral alterations in the considerable histologic and morphologicfunctioning of the intricate alterations, mostly characterized by the hyperthecosis (hyperplasia of the ovarianmechanisms of the hypothalamus- stroma) and the bilateral enlargement ofpituitary-ovaries axis and these organs. As it was also observed, ansometimes including disorders in excessive production of androgens by theother areas of the endocrine adrenal glands (hyperandrogenic adrenalsystem, gynecology is still insisting hyperplasia) may also be responsible foron trying to find out which should several cases of "polycystic ovariesbe the "ultimate cause" for this syndrome," and sometimes both conditionscomplicated disorder. may be associated.
Psycho-neuro-endocrine-ovarian pathway….effects and results.. Emotions initiate, precipitate and aggravates most of the illnesses and the root cause of most of the illnesses is relatedto exploitation of emotions… in todays modern life social andpsycho-social pressures like grief ,worries, anxiety,jealosy andstress causes emotional turbulence. Suppression of emotions affects the limbic system of brain leading to disterbences inpsycho-neuro-hormonal axis and ultimatly lresult in imbalance in pitutory and ovarian hormone like FSH and LH, estrogen and progesterone resulting in formation of cyst in ovaries.

Conclusion As per homeopathic philosophy it is the person as a whole who is sick even if his/her particular organ appears to be sick by the disease. The person therefore has to be treated holistically or as per modern point of view as psycho- somatically. Such approach not only removes the effect of disease/ pathology but also annihilates the cause of disease.
