PCOS: Ayurveda’s physical therapy approach
PCOS i.e. Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome has emerged as a major disorder which undermines not just the reproductive health of women but also one which truly degrades the quality of life and self-esteem. A metabolic disorder with an imbalance of multiple hormones, PCOS triggers a plethora of signs and symptoms. Stubborn signs and symptoms of PCOS like weight gain in the mid-section of the body, skin pigmentation especially around the neck, irregular periods, and infertility pose a major challenge for successful management.
Being a complex metabolic disorder, PCOS requires a multi-modal management requiring a skilful combination of Ayurvedic medications, dietary modifications which complement each patient’s unique body type (or Prakriti), Yoga, exercise and Ayurvedic Panchakarma. Ayurvedic Panchakarma therapy works on the actual imbalances which lead to PCOS like sluggish metabolism, insulin resistance, massive imbalance of reproductive hormones, imbalanced fat metabolism etc. rather than adopting a short-sighted approach of managing only the symptoms. Ayurvedic Panchakarma help in cleansing, detoxifying and restoring the hormonal and metabolic imbalance that plague women with PCOS.
Four Most Effective Panchakarma therapies which help in the successful management of PCOS are:
- 1. Vamana:
- 2. Virechana
- 3. Basti
- 4. Udvartana
