Yoga for Women – PCOD

                              PCOD (polycystic ovary disease)
What is PCOD?
In your body, there are two ovaries. They produce follicles which then grow to form eggs; the eggs then reach into uterus for fertilization. And when fertilization doesn’t occur; you have your menstrual cycle operating.
Now in cases of PCOD, follicles are created, but they don’t grow into egg. The ovaries keep on generating follicles and this causes too many cysts in it. Now as no eggs are formed, it gives rise to menstrual cycle and no fertilization. Besides, as the ovaries are not functioning properly, they also continue to make more of male hormones which lead to excess growth of hair or excessive hair fall.
What Are The Symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?
The symptoms associated with PCOD are:
(Note that every patient of PCOD will not suffer from all these symptoms, a few or combination of the symptoms may be observed. Even the levels of severity differ)
  • Absent or irregular periods
  • Weight gain
  • Acne 
  • Excessive hair growth on the face and body
  • Infertility
  • Thinning of scalp hair
What are the causes of PCOD?
PCOD can be genetically acquired. Other than that excessive stress, junk food, and unhealthy lifestyle can also be a reason for the same
What kind of diet is suitable for a patient of PCOD?
PCOD is a PITT pradhan disorder- so diet plays a very significant role.
Cool things are suggested with lots of fibrous food like jawar and bajra.
How would yoga help in getting me cured of this disorder??
Yoga helps in regulating endocrine glands, which are responsible in making hormones, thus helping in balancing the male and female hormones in the body. ‘Shavasan’ helps to ease stress and harmonizes the body. Yoga compiled with naturopathy gives faster relief in the symptoms related to PCOD. Blood circulation to ovaries increases due to the various asanas practiced which helps to lower down the number of cysts being formed.
