PCOS is crippling and a life altering illness, which makes you completely lose control of your health . Let’s do everything we can to put reins on it.

Adopt these simple yet highly effective Ayurvedic home remedies to help manage your PCOS better.

Tulsi- Holy basil

Facial hair and acne are the worst part of having PCOS. Tulsi is one of the best remedy for Image result for uses of tulsireducing the growth of thick and unsightly facial hair. It helps in boosting the levels of SHBG- a hormone that binds excess androgens or male hormones (namely testosterone!) and gradually reduces facial hair as well as acne. Also, tulsi helps in reducing the excessive skin pigmentation or acanthosis nigricans- black velvety pigmentation typically seen around neck in PCOS.

How to take Tulsi?

Simplest way to have tulsi is to chew 10 tulsi leaves (washed) every day. In case fresh tulsi is   not an option, organic tulsi tea is fine as well. Wash and crush about a handful tulsi leaves and apply them on dark pigmented areas or acne. Leave it on for 15 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. This tulsi paste can be applied every day.

Kalonji, Black seeds, Nigella seeds

Black seeds a.k.a Nigella seeds or Kalonji as they are called in India, have been revered as a Image result for nigella seedspotent remedy for almost every disease, especially in the Mediterranean. A must have spice in your pantry, Black seeds are a boon to women suffering from PCOS. Humble black seeds boost metabolism, help weight loss and regularize menstrual cycle by balancing stubborn hormones in PCOS. They also reduce blood sugar by enhancing insulin sensitivity. Most importantly, black seeds and black seed oil help in preventing the follicles from turning cystic. Call it the one- stop- home-remedy for PCOS!

Organic black seeds or nigella seeds should be taken once or twice daily 1-3 gm (about ¾ tsp) ideally before breakfast.  One teaspoon black seed oil should be taken with equal amount of honey before breakfast for maximum benefits. It may take minimum 8-10 weeks to experience the health benefits of black seeds in PCOS.

levels of male hormone- testosterone (yes, women do have a small of amount of testosterone in their body!) and complex concoct of hormonal imbalances triggers facial hair to grow thicker and more men-like. The one home remedy that works best for controlling facial hair growth in PCOS is Spearmint! Spearmint has been proved by research to reduce the levels of circulating male hormone- testosterone and thus help in controlling and reducing the growth of thick facial hair in PCOS. Also, as testosterone triggers loss of scalp hair or balding in women with PCOS, spearmint can also help in reducing hair loss.

 

 

Reducing the intake of simple carbs, unhealthy fat and eating small portions of meals every 3-4 hours are other things that are effective in bringing facial hair growth under control in PCOS. Adopting healthy diet and lifestyle to lose weight is a must while trying spearmint in PCOS!

How to Take Spearmint?

A good quality organic Spearmint (peppermint works fine as well) tea should be steeped for two to three minutes and taken twice daily minimum five days every week.  As each woman suffering from PCOS is different, I recommend continuing spearmint till you see satisfactory results in terms of reduced facial hair growth.

Hope these home remedies help you in managing your PCOS better. Wishing all women and men who adore & respect women for what they are, a very happy and healthy women’s day! Choose health over PCOS, choose YOU over PCOS! Be proactive, be empowered, be healthy and most importantly be YOU!

Patient Feedback is so imp …

Posted on Updated on

Most of the times – a patient and doctor relationship is very limited to the discussion around the patients current health issues.

Once the issue is resolved, the patient nor the doctor find enough time and inclination in pursuing the discussion and getting meaningful feedback.
This could be primarily due to the doctor not having enough time to spend on the “person” who is no longer a “patient”.
A busy doctor has to deal with a lot of people on any given day.
Also, the relationship aspect becomes difficult to handle as most people are not keen to share details in an ongoing basis as they do not see – it’s necessary.Paitent_Doctor

For a doctor, regular feedback and updates from a patient is very important to monitor and measure the success of his treatment. Also, it provides good insight and information to a doctor  when the patient provides a feedback. It not only feels good for the doctor but also helps in planning and providing good care to other patients with similar issues on : How to approach a new patient and provide better care and cure.

Personally, due to the nature of issues that I encounter especially around PCOD, Weight gain, Skin problems, Pregnancy, Lifestyle and hair care issues etc. in person visit in a clinical setting is indeed easier to cure and handle. Also the amount of time and effort it involves in providing care and on-going monitoring is much more efficient in a clinical setting.

However, with a lot of people approaching for online consultations and advice, providing good care and consultation to patients online via channels like Phone, email, chat and video consultations has become a growing trend. Its easier and convenient for a patient to book an appointment and also consult a doctor due to the advancement of technologies and communication tools. Additionally, the stress and cost related to physical commute to a clinic can be avoided and saves time and money to the patients.
For a doctor, this provides a new challenge as well as opportunities to handle different types of issues and people.

Interestingly, a few of the challenges related to remote patient management and cure can be addressed with good and effective feedback especially if the disease is a long standing one and needs prolonged period of treatment and care.

I have seen this work effectively in my medical practice since a few years now. Most of my patients who have communicated and provided insights into their health and feedback on a regular basis has immensely benefited me in my practice and providing better care to other patients. Also, this benefits the patient on their return visits as I have had their case history details and been in regular touch.

Sharing a few details of some of my recent paitent testimonials below as a sample.
Also, I must congratulate the patients too for their trust in my work, belief that they will get cure  and the disciplined  and persistent approach to dealing with the disease. Their committment and trust in Ayurveda and me, has immensely helped in my practice and passion for medicine !

That Gut Feel ! | How Diet, Lifestyle and good bacteria matters to your health.

Posted on Updated on

Ever wondered how, in a country like India – we find that – kids who grow up in rural areas or on the streets, seem to have relatively better immunity to some auto-immune diseases compared to others ?  The answer to this might be the exposure and adaptation of our body to microbes. Microbes are predominantly found on our Skin, Gut and oral tracts.

At times, we hear people relying on their intuition or “gut feeling” while making a decision rather than the rational mind to make it .  Apparently, the human gut has a great influence on not only our digestive well being, skin, hair etc but also on the mind –  hence, “gut feeling” matters and makes logical sense 🙂

According to a research study done by Claire Fraser,a renowned scientist in the field of – microbial genomics, the diversity of the gut microbes in Americans is less diverse than that of people in other countries.

What does this mean to us ?

Though this conclusion from the study, seems more like a passing thought – it has a very profound impact on how we are leading our lives- our lifestyles, how we are interacting with nature- our diet. How strong and resilient our human body is to diseases and infections. What a change in our diet and lifestyle can do to your health.

What has caused the american society to have less diverse microbes compared to others – Apparently, the study seems to suggest that- due to  increased use of antibiotics, genetically modified (GM) food, lesser contact with nature and natural foods, consumption of processed food etc. have caused the body to react and store fewer genomes of these microbes. Frequent use of antibiotics , reduced practice of breast feeding have made our body(gut) less immune. The initial few formative weeks/months of the new born rely on the breast milk bacteria to understand and detect the fact that some of these gut bacteria is good for our defense and immunity.

The weakened gut flora system might also be responsible for sudden rashes, eczema (atopic dermatitis), Colon cancer etc., along with usage of steroid fed cow’s milk to mothers (during pregnancy) or breast feeding period. Hence consumption of organic milk, food is very important to prevent such skin issues to new born’s or otherwise.

According to a research study by AmericanGut, even a year on “proper lifestyle and diet ”  has profound effect on what microbes are cultivated in your gut- resulting in improved immune system.
