Natural home made treatment methods for PCOS in Ayurveda
Ayurveda classifies PCOS as a kapha disorder.
The organs responsible for reproduction in the female body are called artava dhatu. The channel that supplies, nourishes and enables the functional action of carrying the ovum to the uterus is called artavavaha srota. All three doshas play important and distinctive roles in the processes behind the female reproduction which includes the ovarian cycle and the menstrual cycle.
Vata is responsible for movement of the follicle during the ovarian cycle, the rupture of the ovary wall releasing the matured ovum, the movement of the fimbriae – the finger like projections that guide the ovum into the fallopian tubes and the movement of the ovum towards the uterus. These actions are due to apana vayu, the force behind downward movement from the navel down. Apana vayu is also responsible for the movement of menses during menstruation and the energy behind the downward movement of a baby through the birth canal during labour.
The action of the hormones expresses the nature of pitta, the energy responsible for transformation. All stages of the female reproductive process are a result of the interplay of hormones. The spark of intelligence behind the transformation of each stage is due to pitta reflected in the influence of the hormones on the different stages of the ovarian and menstrual cycles.
