Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease and Ayurveda

  1. 1. Understanding PCOS (PCOD) PCOS is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. PCOS is a condition where hormonal imbalance affects follicular growth during ovarian cycle causing the affected follicles to remain in the ovary. The retained follicle forms a cyst and with each ovarian cycle a new cyst is formed leading to multiple ovarian cysts. Web: www.nirogam.com Help line: +91-9015525552 Email: support@nirogam.com
  2. 2. Symptoms of PCOS One major cause of PCOS is the excess production of luteinizing hormone of pituitary gland that increases androgen production. • No menstrual periods or irregular bleeding • Inability to get pregnant (infertility) • Abnormal production of insulin leading to weight gain • Type 2 diabetes • High cholesterol Web: www.nirogam.com Help line: +91-9015525552 Email: support@nirogam.com
  3. 3. More Symptoms Dark patches on skin Excessive body hair Male pattern baldness Acne Deepened voice Web: www.nirogam.com Help line: +91-9015525552 Email: support@nirogam.com
  4. 4. The Ayurvedic View Scriptures speak of two conditions in relation to PCOS. 1. In the first, menstruation does not appear in its appropriate time or it is delayed (prolonged intermenstrual period). There is scanty menstruation and it does not last for 3 days. It is associated with pain in vagina. 2. In the second, the doshas like vata and kapha obstruct the passage or orifices carrying menstrual blood (artava).

  5. 5. Characteristics of Ayurvedic Tridoshas Vata •Cool, dry, rough and light Pitta •Warm, moist, light and moist Kapha •Cool, wet, soft and heavy Web: www.nirogam.com Help line: +91-9015525552 Email: support@nirogam.com
  6. 6. Pathogenesis of PCOS Kapha dosha is cold and dense. With its heavy cool qualities, it nourishes the development of the tissues that form and support the reproductive system. This also supports the growth of the follicle during the ovarian cycle. PCOS occurs when kapha blocks the other two doshas, vata and pitta. Thus, the movement (release) of the mature ovum and menstrual blood is obstructed due to the sticky kapha and the transformation process is suppressed.

  7. 7. Hormonal Disharmony caused by Kapha Pitta is responsible for the hormonal play. When pitta gets blocked the hormones that carry the energy of transformation are unable to function. The energy transformation here, refers to the power or function of pitta which helps to shift from one cycle (phase) to the other i.e. from the menstrual cycle to the ovarian cycle which is governed by hormones. The accumulated kapha is thus expressed in the formation of cysts in the ovary. The different symptoms of PCOS including obesity, insulin resistance, irregular periods, acne, hirsutism etc. are the expression of the different factors occurring inside the body due to aggravated kapha.
