Hello,

It is appreciable that being an MBBS student you want to deal with the health problems naturally. 
PCOD is the reason for irregular periods and weight gain as it results in hormonal imbalances. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder which is common in women of reproductive age. Women suffering from PCOS may have prolonged menstrual periods or infrequent periods.

The exact cause of PCOS is not known. However, women having a family history of PCOS are more prone to this disorder. If it is left untreated, some cysts can decrease fertility. Here are some tips to follow for management. 

Diet to follow- 

  • Eating processed and preserved foods may contribute to inflammation and insulin resistance. So, avoid processed, preserved and packaged foods. 
  • Add fruits, legumes and vegetables in your diet. 
  • Eat nuts, sprouts and soaked raisins in the morning. 
  • Add iron-rich foods like broccoli, spinach to your diet.
  • Have magnesium-rich foods like almonds, cashews and bananas.
  • Include turmeric and cinnamon in your diet. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and cinnamon has positive effects on insulin resistance. 
  • Avoid caffeine. 
  • Avoid carbonated drinks. 
  • Say no to alcohol, tobacco. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal products. 

Exercise 

Doing yoga is very beneficial for PCOS.

  • Perform bhujanga asana, vriksha asana and padahasta asana. 
  • Do pranayam regularly specially anulom-vilom pranayam. 
  • Take sunrays regularly in the morning for at least 20min. 

Sleep

Sleeping pattern is very essential for a healthy hormonal balance. Hence, take proper sleep of at least 7-8 hours daily. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning. 

Thank you

Namaskar,

We do understand your concern about PCOD and weight-loss. Women-health related issues such as PCOD or cyst etc. are often linked to hormonal balance. We would like to draw your attention to the Nature Cure perspective on the same.

Nature Cure believes that the root cause of most diseases/health conditions is Toxaemia- the accumulation of toxins within the body.  While some toxins are an output of metabolism, others are added due to unnatural lifestyle- wrong food habits, lack of rest and stress. Nature has equipped us with the measures of eliminating the toxins on a regular basis - through breathing, stool, urine, sweat, mucus depositions in nose, eyes and genitals etc. Whenever there is toxic overload due to insufficient or faulty elimination our body tries to throw out the toxins in the form of Flu, Loose-motions, cough, cold, fever, skin rashes and acute pain. Defying the body’s demand for rest and/ or suppressing the discomforting symptoms by quick-fixes like medicines, leads to an imbalance in the body. Periods are regulated by hormones - estrogen & progesterone. If there is a toxic overload on the body, it can prevent the hormones from performing their routine functions. And yes, this disturbed balance may lead to either weight loss or even weight gain. 

One can reverse this state of imbalance by getting back in sync with the natural laws of living. You may consider enrolling yourself for Wellcure's Yoga & Nutrition for PCOS Program
