PCOS, known as Polycystic ovarian syndrome has become an extremely common problem occurring in today's women and also one of the commonest causes of infertility.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome results due to imbalance in two major female hormones namely Oestrogen and progesterone, leading to the formation of multiple pearl-like cysts in a female ovary.
PCOS is marked by a decrease in female sex hormones, this condition may cause women to develop certain male characteristics, such as:
1. excess hair on the face, chest, stomach, thumbs, or toes
2. decrease in breast size
3. deeper voice
4. thin hair
Other symptoms include:
2. weight gain
3. pelvic pain
4. anxiety or depression
6. Cardiac troubles
According to the U.S department of health and human services, between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 women of childbearing age suffers from PCOS. The condition currently affects up to 5 million women in the United States alone.
The cause of PCOD is unknown. But it is linked to genetic causes. Also, overproduction of androgen is linked to PCOD. Androgen is predominantly a male hormone and present in negligible amounts in female. However, when it is over produced in some women, it can lead to PCOD.
While there exists no particular treatment for the cure of PCOS in the modern medicine except the use of OCP's to regularise menstrual cycles and treating sign and symptoms superficially. Homeopathy offers a cure.
Homeopathy has proved effective in the treatment of PCOS and has not only helped in reducing the size of cyst in the ovary but also complete relief from associated symptoms like acne breakouts, infertility, weight gain, facial hair growth etc.
This is because Homeopathy focuses on treating and curing the root cause of the problem. The Homeopathic philosophy of disease is not based on the external causes of diseases. Homeopathy believes that the human body has been perfectly enabled by nature to keep itself disease free. It is only when the immunity or its own internal vitality is deranged that the body becomes incapable of keeping itself disease free. Therefore Homeopathy tries to restore the balance of that vitality. Once the vitality regains its original balance, it is able to nurse itself back to health without any external aid.
Again, I am mentioning some of the popularly used homeopathic medicines to treat PCOS,the choice of remedy is solely based on the person's individual characteristics.
So, it is best to consult a homeopathic physician near you rather than being your own doctor.
