    PCOS herbal remedies and solution

    1 In 5 Women Affected By PCOS In India! But Fret Not, We Have The Solution

    An inclusive study on Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) to observe the trends in PCOS cases in young women in India revealed, that one in five women suffer from PCOS problem and East India leads the chart with 1 in 4 women suffering from PCOS. Isn't that a staggering number!



    Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome commonly known as PCOS, is a very prevalent reproductive disorder in women and the leading cause of infertility among women today.


    Metropolis Healthcare Ltd, conducted a comprehensive pan India study on 27,411 samples of testosterone over a period of 18 months. Out of 27,411 samples, around 4,824, (17.60%) of the females face hormonal associated risk with polycystic ovarian syndrome.
    The increasing trend of PCOS is predominantly seen in the age group 15 to 30 years.Among the samples tested East India shows alarming levels of 25.88% women affected by PCOS, followed by 18.62% in North India, which can be largely attributed to lack of awareness among young women and ignorance.


    Commenting on the study Dr. Sonali Kolte, Metropolis Healthcare Ltd said, “Undiagnosed PCOS can lead to infertility and in long term can cause several health complications; which can be attributed to other factors as well. Early diagnosis and treatment can help control the symptoms and prevent health related problems. Today a lot of young women are aware of the condition and seek medical help.’
    What is PCOS?

    It is a common misconception that PCOS is all about cysts but it is in fact a characteristic amalgamation of cosmetic, gynecological and metabolic symptoms.


    Cosmetic symptoms include facial hair, thinning of the scalp and acne.
    Gynecological symptoms include irregular or scanty periods which are usually the first red flag in adolescents.


    Infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss affects the women in the reproductive age. PCOS in older women could even lead to cancer of the uterus, cardiac disease and type 2 diabetes. Hence it is important to manage the symptom along with proper diet and exercise. Awareness and accurate diagnosis is the first step in managing PCOS in a way that it improves quality of life of the patient. Women with PCOS may have enlarged ovaries that contain small collection of fluids called cyst. The cysts are not harmful, but can lead to hormonal imbalances.

    Diagnosis

    Testosterone test along with a host of other tests (blood sugar, insulin, FSH, LH, 17OHP, DHEAS) are carried out to ascertain PCOS in women. Testosterone plays an important role in both men and women, as it affects the brain, bone, muscle, fat distribution, sexual functions etc. Women have much lower amount of testosterone in the body compared to men.

    · North India- 18.62%
    · East India- 25.88%
    · West India-19.88%
    · South India-18%


    Go The Yoga Way To Treat PCOS


    via artofliving.com
    · Butterfly Pose can be very helpful in PCOS. Don’t flap your legs too much; instead try holding the posture for long.
    · Even more helpful is SuptaBadhakonasana (Reclining Butterfly Pose), which works just like the Butterfly Pose, this time lying down. This is what makes it extremely relaxing. To enhance the experience, play some soft music and place cushions under your hip. For beginners, it is a good idea to use cushion support while doing this posture.
    · Bharadvajasana (Bharadvaja’s Twist) is a seated spinal twist that helps PCOS patients.
    · Chakki Chalanasana (moving the grinding wheel) is a very simple exercise with several benefits. It helps massage the liver, kidneys, pancreas, uterus and the reproductive organs.
    · Shavasana (Corpse Pose) is another useful posture to try. In PCOS, the more you relax, the better you feel. This posture will help you completely relax at the end of your yoga session.
    · Padma Sadhana practice is also considered very effective for PCOS patients.

    Diet tips that will help you lose weight and prevent PCOS


    via Shutterstock
    1. Follow a low-carb and low-fat diet.
    2. Eat more protein.
    3. Opt for roasted snacks over fried ones.
    4. Eat dinner before 7 pm.
    5. Don’t forget to exercise!
    6. Aim to lose 5% of your weight to begin with.
    Remember PCOS is not a disease, only a disorder. On the bright side, statistically 20% of women, who have polycystic ovaries, may not have problems in ovulating or conceiving. Also with the help of ovulation medication nearly 60-70 percent women will achieve ovulation and 40% of them will conceive over the first 3 attempts. It is not advisable to continue the treatment if there is no response to same or if 6-10 cycles of these medications have not helped achieve pregnancy.
