Ayurvedic treatment for PCOS in Kerala

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disturbance affecting women between 15 to 30 years of age.  PCOS is a condition where a hormonal imbalance affects follicular growth during the ovarian cycle causing the affected follicles to remain in the ovary. The retained follicle forms into a cyst and with each ovarian cycle a new cyst is formed leading to multiple ovarian cysts.  Women suffering from PCOS often present with other associated symptoms including hirsutism – excessive body hair, menstrual disturbances, acne, and obesity. Ayurvedic treatment for PCOS in Kerala, it’s important to choose a reputable Ayurvedic center or practitioner with experience in treating hormonal disorders. They should have proper certifications and a good reputation. Additionally, inform your healthcare provider about any Ayurvedic treatments you are undergoing to ensure a coordinated and safe approach to managing your health.

Ayurveda holds that three “doshas”—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—circulate throughout the body and support vital activities. In healthy individuals, all three doshas are in perfect harmony. According to Ayurveda, any imbalance in the three forces of energy can lead to diseases.

Ayurvedic texts mention the presence of Shukra dhatu (semen) in both men and women. Shukra dhatu plays a vital role in maintaining the health of the reproductive system. Shukra dhatu is like a mix of the male hormone androgen and the female hormone estrogen. Any imbalance in Shukra dhatu can cause infertility.

An imbalance in the doshas can affect the efficiency of the Shukra dhatu. When “doshas” affect the efficiency of the Shukra dhatu in women, it leads to excess production of male hormones and other symptoms of PCOS such as the appearance of cysts in the ovaries. 

Ayurvedic treatment has a holistic approach to the management of PCOS. Instead of a one-size-fits-all strategy, PCOS patients receive individualized treatments. Such a personalized approach helps in re-balancing the hormones naturally. Ayurvedic therapy focuses on balancing tissue nutrition, rectifying the imbalance of dosha-bio-energies that govern the body, and boosting metabolism. Ayurvedic therapies also help in gradual and wholesome weight loss, reduce hair, and facial hair growth, and reduce acne.

Thus, Ayurvedic therapy not only helps in controlling PCOS, it also helps in restoring health and well-being.

    Ayurveda indeed emphasizes a holistic approach to health, considering various aspects beyond just the absence of disease. It takes into account the balance of doshas (biological energies), proper functioning of Dhatus (tissues), healthy Agni ( digestive fire) and normal Malakriya (elimination). Additionally, it acknowledges the importance of a Prasanna Atma (content soul), balanced Indriya ( sensory organs), and a tranquil Manas (mind) in achieving overall well-being. This holistic perspective is a fundamental principle of Ayurvedic medicine, which helps one to cure from the core inside.
    What Is Panchakarma?
    The word Panchakarma is derived from two words: Pancha, which means five, while Karma means procedure and is five treatments that include curative, preventive and promotive actions for various diseases. Some acharyas also use the word Pancha Shodana ( five purificatory), which means five purificatory therapy.
    Acharya Charaka and Vagbhata consider the following as Panchakarma’s;
    Vamana– Emesis

    Niruha vasti- enema with decoction
    Anuvasana vasti– enema with oil
    Nasya– nasal instillation.
