Yet another year is almost coming to an end. It’s time again to form practical, critical and essential New Year resolutions. Especially if you are suffering from PCOD/PCOS, your new year resolution should be on the lines of -putting an end to the suffering (either due to inaction or wrong treatment decisions) and actively managing your life and health with Ayurveda!
I meet, see, observe and help a lot of women and my patients with PCOS. Complicated nature of PCOS, amount of time, patience and efforts it takes to bring it under control, often leads to quitting or avoidance!
Women suffer by surrendering their fate to PCOS, rather than managing it successfully with Ayurveda. Resorting to oral contraceptive pills, discontinuing Ayurvedic medicines and therapies as they do not give instant results, non-commitment to diet and lifestyle changes are the common issues that I see in my practice.
A lot of women with PCOS contact me regarding Ayurvedic management of PCOS. Very few get on board actively when I explain them the simple, yet effort-intensive nature of the Ayurvedic treatment for PCOS.
Ayurvedic PCOS management is thorough, as it involves modifications in diet and lifestyle based on every woman’s unique body type (that is assessed individually). It does require efforts and commitment both on part of the patient as well as the Ayurvedic practitioner. Importance of such diet and lifestyle modification is for achieving:
- Long lasting effects in PCOS management
- Improved quality of life
- Sustained weight loss
- Enhanced fertility
- Good psychological welbeing
- Prevention of complications (Diabetes, heart diseases, infertility etc.)
Ayurvedic management of PCOS is highly effective and far sighted. It prioritizes the health of women with PCOS and pro-actively protects it for years to come. Ayurveda does not limit itself by only regularizing menstruation. Irregular menses is only the tip of iceberg, compared to the massive hormonal and metabolic imbalance of PCOS. Also, Ayurvedic medicines and therapies are safe. They do not come with serious side effects like lowered fertility, obesity, deep vein thrombosis etc. which are commonly experienced with contemporary medicines. All that Ayurveda needs is a determined patient, positive mind-set and a commitment to get healthy! Ayurveda is what PCOS requires!
As this year ends, do not put your PCOS issues on the back burner. PCOS issues are not the ones which will resolve with time- they only get complicated! Do not suppress the symptoms of PCOS with easy medications- they will come back with 10 times the severity!
Take an early New Year resolution, move a step ahead from being a defeated thinker to a successful doer! Manage you PCOS with Ayurveda – Stop suffering and start living – not just for next year, but for years to come!
