OVARIAN CYSTS & HAIR LOSS

Women's disorders are rising at an alarming rate today — they range from straightforward menstrual [monthly periods] disturbances and infertility to malignancies [cancer].

A frequently encountered complaint that is also presently on the upswing is polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS].

The disorder is by far the leading cause of infertility in women; it is also the most common hormonal disorder in their reproductive years, with noticeable hair loss on the scalp.

It reportedly affects 5-6 per cent of all women.

WHAT RESEARCH SAYS

The exact cause of PCOS is not known. Research, however, suggests that the prime cause could be insulin-resistance diabetes, which leads not only to hormonal imbalance, but also disturbs normal menstrual patterns.

The adrenal gland is evidenced to produce more testosterone in PCOS. This increased level may prevent ovulation and produce symptoms related to the disorder.

PCOS is linked to a number of health complications, viz., type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular [heart] disease and endometrial cancer. The earlier you begin to monitor and treat PCOS, the sooner you would be able to control and also manage symptoms.

Coping with PCOS is complicated; it is also a painful challenge. From the several embarrassing symptoms to difficulty in conceiving, women with PCOS often feel that they are all alone. Hormonal changes are the hallmark of this disorder too; almost every bodily system may be affected. Some women may have irregular ovulation or menstruation, female pattern of hair loss on the scalp, with increased hair growth in odd places, like the face, hands, etc., and weight problems.

Conventional treatment of PCOS aims at restoration of the normal menstrual cycle, fertility, lowering of insulin levels, treatment of hair loss on the scalp and excessive hair growth elsewhere, and prevention of endometrial cancer, along with dietary therapy and/or use of contraceptive pills. The downside is they provide only temporary relief, besides leading to drug dependency — without eliminating the problem from the ‘root.’

In recent times, research has shown that alternative medical treatments, like homeopathy, offer safe, effective and also better treatment results when compared to conventional medical treatment.

HOMEOPATHY: THE SAFE, EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR ‘PCOS-CENTRIC’ HAIR LOSS

The ‘root cause’ of PCOS lies in hormonal disturbance. Homeopathy corrects the hormonal commotion and brings about harmony, without the risk of side-effects. It also helps avoid the use of surgical procedures, while bringing about regularisation of the menstrual cycle and increasing the chances of conception and preventing recurrence of the disorder.

In a clinical trial of 36 women suffering from PCOS, fitting the ‘mental personality picture’ of a leading homeopathic medicine for PCOS and PCOS-triggered hair loss, 32 had complete disappearance of symptoms of PCOS, followed by the production of normal ovulating follicles. A further 4 out of the 36 became asymptomatic.

All the same, it is imperative to consult a professional homeopathic doctor, for achieving clinically tangible and good long-term results in PCOS and PCOS-triggered hair loss.

SELF-HELP

  • Diet holds the key. Eating carbohydrates alone is not a good idea. Instead, combine them with proteins and/or ‘good’ fats
  • Try to select foods with a low glycaemic index, as they cause a slow rise in blood sugar levels [Example, wheat bran, cereals etc.,]
  • Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water and non-caffeinated fluids, because a low-carbohydrate intake may cause dehydration
  • Limit foods high in saturated and transfats [viz., red meat, whole milk, dairy, butter and stick margarine, chicken skin, fat/fried foods, and rich dessert]
  • Select monounsaturated fats [olive oil, canola oil, and nuts] and omega-3 fats [fatty fish, such as salmon, and flaxseed]
  • Exercise, under the guidance of a professional trainer, 4-5 days a week
  • A good calcium supplement [1,000mg] fortified with folic acid [400mcg] is useful in PCOS
  • Follow-up with your homeopathic doctor on a regular basis.
