Treating PCOD, nature’s wayFebruary 23, 2021 Posted by: Dr Manoj's Homeopathy 239 views
Women share a love-hate relationship with their periods. Women generally frown when it arrives as it brings with it unwanted cramps, unwelcome mood swings and a general feeling of being unwell. On the other hand, if it decides to not pay you a visit, or is late, it could indicate that there is something wrong with your body.
Having regular periods reassure you that your reproductive health is doing just fine. If you are looking at starting your family, this factor becomes critical too as not having your periods in time would warrant for additional interventions.
One of the things that could be causing irregular periods, and something that is very common in women across the globe is PCOD, or Polycystic Ovarian Disease.
What is PCOD?
A woman’s ovaries have the responsibility of releasing eggs which eventually get fertilised by the male sperm, and if this fertilised egg implants itself into the uterus, the woman conceives.
PCOD happens when the ovaries begin releasing half mature eggs. These eggs accumulate and form cysts, which in turn causes PCOD. PCOD or Polycystic Ovarian Disease is often triggered when the male and female hormones in the women’s body are out of balance, specifically when the male hormone is more than the female hormone.
PCOD and its symptoms
PCOD is the kind of health condition in which the symptoms are also the impacts. Many women do not realise that they have PCOD unless they get tested either for irregular periods, or even if they are unable to conceive naturally. The best way to understand if a woman has Polycystic Ovarian Disease is by observing their health carefully and noticing any of the below symptoms.
- Irregular periods: The most common indication of PCOD is irregular, missed or delayed periods. The best way to monitor periods is either by noting down dates or using apps that help women track their menstrual cycles.
- Heavy periods: When the periods are delayed, the lining of the uterus thickens and therefore, causes heavy bleeding during periods.
- Unexplained weight gain: Many women are health conscious these days and adhere to diet and fitness regimes. Yet, sometimes their bodies might not respond to these measures and there could be a weight gain. This could be indicative of PCOD triggered by a hormonal imbalance.
- Unwanted hair growth: One of the ways in which women can tell that there is something wrong with their health is seeing if there is unwanted hair growth. The increase in male hormones often causes this spurt of hair growth which is often a sign of PCOD.
- Mood swings: Periods are often associated with mood swings but sometimes, PCOD can intensify this situation. If women find themselves swinging between extremes, they should pay closer attention to any other symptom they might have and get themselves checked for PCOD.
- Infertility: Women trying to conceive naturally must take into account the timeframe for which they have been trying. If it has been more than a year, then a test for PCOD is often recommended.
Life after PCOD diagnosis
While there are modes of treatment in western medicine, these can be rather invasive and come with no guarantees. Some of these treatments can intensify women’s mood swings further and even push them into depression if the treatments don’t work. PCOD can have a significant impact on fertility as the ovaries begin releasing immature eggs and therefore it needs to be treated as soon as possible to retain good reproductive functionality.
This is why homeopathy is one of the most preferred forms of treatment when it comes to PCOD. The homoeopathic approach to PCOD is simple: isolate all the symptoms, focus on each one of them and deliver holistic results.
The best part about homeopathy is the fact that it’s non-intrusive, meaning a woman can carry on with her usual lifestyle, taking any other form of medication that she is on, while parallely adapting to the homeopathic way of treating PCOD. Natural, safe to consume and highly effective, homeopathy ticks all the boxes when it comes to the best way to treat PCOD.
