Ayurveda is a holistic healing therapy. One of the world’s oldest practices, based on the concept that wellness and health are achieved by balancing your mind, body, and spirit.

In Ayurveda, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is classified under Yonivyapda. It  is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age, characterized by irregular menstruation cycles, weight gain or loss, stress, and acne.

PCOS is caused by an imbalance in Vata, Pitta, and Kapha Doshas and an imbalance of Rasa, Rakta, and Atharva Dhatus. The causes of these imbalances in Dosha and Dhatus are mental stress, lifestyle disorders, improper diet, and lack or excessive sleep. Ayurvedic treatment is effective in normalizing your hormonal balance, reducing cysts, and regularizing monthlies. You should focus on making healthy food and lifestyle choices to keep you energetic and strong for a healthy recovery process.
