Today, Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) is one of the widely present ailments among the females of the reproductive age group. Ovaries are female reproductive organs situated in the pelvis, next to the uterus. They produce and release eggs for fertilization, (which develop from follicles) and are released into the uterus once a month. In those suffering from PCOD, more than usual number of follicles (fluid filled cysts) develop each month, but none of them mature to release an egg. Over the period of many months as ovum is not thrown out with menses, it remains in the ovaries and fluid collection starts around it, which turns into cysts. These cysts are benign (non cancerous).
Symptoms of PCOD:
Irregular or absence of menses, weight gain, hirsutism (excessive hair growth on face and body), acne, difficulties in conception, thinning of scalp hair, black pigmentation around neck, folds of skin, knuckles, elbows, below breast and groins.Patients of PCOD are at a higher risk of developing, high blood pressure, diabetes, high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides making them more vulnerable to heart problems, uterine cancer, early miscarriage and mental depression due to unwanted hair growth on face and infertility.
There is no permanent cure for PCOD and only symptoms are relieved. Laser treatment is recommended for excessive hair growth, acne creams and hormone therapies are some of the other available conventional treatments. These therapies do not guarantee conception or complete cyst free ovaries.
We at HomoeoCARE help patients to get rid of this tendency of cyst formation every month. We also help to reduce and eventually disappear all cysts from the ovaries thus enabling them to get regular menses, reduce weight and get acne free face. HomoeoCARE enables them to regain their confidence as they are free from their unwanted hair growth and are able to conceive. We also assist them to enjoy motherhood which is a gift from God.We at HomoeoCARE have special PCOD clinics every three months and our visiting faculty is Dr. Varsha Pednekar. She has been practicing homoeopathy for the last 12 years and has several success stories to her credit.
We follow individualistic approach in homoeopathy as each patient is different from others physically and mentally. Medicine chosen after a long study of the case denotes that patient’s personality in terms of her physical constitution, mental makeup, emotional status and mental stress factors which have put her in this disease. Therefore, such a medicine absolutely matches her in all aspects and works wonders to bring her back to health. Even though PCOD is known to be caused due to genetic predispositions, still we can treat these tendencies. Also, PCOD is known in patients with heavy mental stress. After administration of Homoeopathic medicines, patients come out of their disease. In case the same stress factors surround the patients, they do not get affected easily. We have been successful in treating many cases of PCOD. A 26-year old female came to our clinic with a right ovarian cyst in her ovaries. She also had a 20mm stone in her gallbladder. Within less than a year of treatment at HomoeoCARE, her ovaries were totally free from cysts. Not only this, even the stone which she had in her gallbladder, got crushed and only 5-7mm stones remained in the gallbladder. She was surprised as the stones got crushed without any surgical intervention. Only classical homoeopathy practiced at HomoeoCARE can make this happen Another 35-year old female came to us with multicystic ovarian mass measuring 5.7x5.2cm. Not only her menses became normal and her overall health improved, but her ovaries also became normal with homoeopathic medication and without taking any hormones.
