5 Steps to say Goodbye to your PCOS Woes

Updated: Aug 17, 2019

PCOS is a result of today's messed up lifestyle and hence can safely be termed a lifestyle disorder.


Unexplained weight gain

Increased Facial hair growth

Irregular cycles 

Acne 

Hair thinning 

Infertility 

Depression


One or more of these symptoms, brings a lot of young women to my clinic


These symptoms to a very common, metabolic, hormonal and reproductive disorder called PCOS - Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, typically seen  among women of childbearing age—and is one of the biggest contributors to infertility. 


Here’s what I recommend to patients who come to me with PCOS:


Step One: Change Your Diet


Eat good quality fats - these help regulate your hormones better

  • Don't skip meals to lose weight instead eat small ones throughout the day, this way your blood glucose is stable.

  • Eat adequate unprocessed carbs like - rice, jowar, bajra, ragi, etc.

  • Eat fresh foods as it preserves nutrients

  • DRINK LOTS OF WATER: It helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, and works to reverse symptoms of dehydration i.e. tiredness, low energy, and headaches. 

  • Add some ghee to your meals

  • Eat Good quality fats - these help regulate your hormones better


Step Two: Consider Homeopathy


Once the diet has been modified, Homeopathy treatment can be started to address the hormonal disturbance and emotional stress. Homeopathic medicines are known to work along with nature, help to balance the hormones, without any risks or side effects. It also helps to regularise the menstrual cycles, and simultaneously increasing the chances of conception.


Step Three: Exercise and Physical Activity


  • Get at least 150 minutes a week of a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. 

  • Please Note – your body weight is NOT important.Your muscle mass is. The more muscle tissue you have, the lesser insulin resistant you get.

  • The best exercise that you can do is strength training in the gym

  • Avoid sitting for too long. Get up and move!


Step Four: Sleep & Rest


  • Get adequate sleep.

  • Go to bed at a regular time each day. Sleep restores both your mind and body.

  • Get rid of your gadgets (your phone, your iPhone, your Kindle, TV) at least an hour before you hit the bed.


Step Five: ‘Me’ Time


  • You can eat as healthy as you want and exercise every single day and still not see the results you seek because you are not focusing on YOURSELF.

  • At a metaphysical level PCOS has a lot to do with too much attention to the outer world. And thus our inner world feel left out.

  • Schedule some ME time.

  • Meditation, Visualization, Breath work and Positive thinking help you channel your inner energies and help achieve balance

What Now?


As women we need to understand that our health is in our own hands – right from what we eat, what time we sleep, what we think and regular exercise. And within a few months or a year, or even a year and half in extreme cases you can lead a completely hormonally balanced life.


When it comes to PCOS, it's important to treat your body with love and respect and it’ll do the same back for you.
