PCOD and Diet

Polycystic ovarian disease (pcod) have multiple small cysts in their ovaries. These cysts occur when the regular changes of a normal menstrual cycle are disrupted. The ovary is enlarged; and produces excessive amounts of androgen and estrogenic hormones. This excess, along with the absence of ovulation, may cause infertility. Other names for pcod are polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos) or the stein-leventhal syndrome.

Causes of pcod:
We don't really understand what causes pcod, though we do know that it has a significant hereditary component, and is often transmitted from mother to daughter. We also know that the characteristic polycystic ovary emerges when a state of an ovulation persists for a length of time. Patients with pco have persistently elevated levels of androgens and estrogens, which set up a vicious cycle. Obesity can aggravate pcod because fatty tissues are hormonally active and they produce estrogen which disrupts ovulation. Overactive adrenal glands can also produce excess androgens, and these may also contribute to pcod. These women also have insulin resistance (high levels of insulin in their blood, because their cells do not respond normally to insulin).

Treatment:
Weight loss diet for pcod
In case of pcod, carbohydrate loading is very important to improve insulin sensitivity.

Why protein
Avoid high glycemic index foods
Include green leafy vegetables fruits

Essential fats:
Not all fat is bad and healthy fats are essential for your pcos diet. Essential fatty acids are really important for maintaining the cell wall, which allows nutrients in, and toxins out. They are also vital for hormone balance, weight management and fertility. These healthy fats are found in nuts and seeds, oily fish, avocado and olive oil so be sure to incorporate those into your diet. 

6. Adequate quantity of vitamin b and magnesium
Physical activity:
Whilst diet is hugely important aspect to tackling pcos, we must not forget other lifestyle changes that will help to overcome pcos and it's symptoms.

Exercise regularly
Manage stress levels
Share the burden and get good support from your family and friends.
Look after yourself and pamper yourself. We need to reclaim our womanhood and femininity so a little bit of tlc is definitely in order.


There is no magical formula that's going to make us all better. However, by making these diet and lifestyle changes now, we can manage our symptoms and improve our health.

Get her investigated for basics. Sugar + salt water does not lead to weakness unless she is diabetic and has high bp. At 48 every woman should get checked for heart because due to time around menopause, there are hormonal changes within the body. Get an ecg, halter, blood tests for cbc, sugar, lipid profile, ultrasound of abdomen. Get back here with reports and her gyne history about periods.

Hi lybrate-user, more than counting the number of chapatis, I think it is important for you to exercise for at least 45 minutes everyday. If you can't make time for exercise, use stairs in office, get up & walk around the office every hour, cut down on fried foods & snacks, eat more fruits/vegetables and whole grain options. There is no replacement for physical activity. Not having enough time to exercise is an excuse for lazy people as the saying goes- if you can't take out time for health now, you'll have to take out time for disease later. So make your choice & get going.

There is no need for D&C or even laparoscopy. If after miscarriage u did not get pregnant by one full year, then only u have to take treatment. Maximum u can do HSG to test the tubes, but only after 1 full year. In the first place u did not need any treatment to get pregnant for the first time as u r just 2 years into marriage now. U r definitely getting excessive treatment too soon.

Irregular periods can be caused due to menstrual cycle disorders. They are very common and can be easily treated with medications. Every month the brain, ovaries & uterus follow a sequence of events to prepare the body for pregnancy. There are four major hormones which are at play here, the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), progesterone and estrogen. Menstrual cycle disorders occur from conditions that affect the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, ovaries, uterus, cervix, or vagina. You should also look out for other signs such as pregnancy, family history of irregular periods, Acne issues, hair on face or chest, gained weight recently, hot flashes, night sweats, frequent headaches, stress or taking any herbal medications. You should urgently see a doctor if you have been having irregular periods for more than three menstrual periods (either consecutively or over the course of a year). In physical exam, we will thoroughly check your reproductive organs and breast. Commonest test done are hemoglobin, iron studies, hormonal assays and ultrasound abdomen. Treatment is given depending upon the cause which can be found out after thorough examination by a Homoeopath, so visit your nearest Homoeopath today.

कलौंजी के लाभ...

डायबिटीज से बचाता है, पिंपल की समस्या दूर, मेमोरी पावर बढ़ाता है, सिरदर्द करे दूर, अस्थमा का इलाज, जोड़ों के दर्द में आराम, आंखों की रोशनी, कैंसर से बचाव, ब्लड प्रेशर करे कंट्रोल.

कलौंजी एक बेहद उपयोगी मसाला है. इसका प्रयोग विभिन्न व्यंजनों जैसे दालों, सब्जियों, नान, ब्रेड, केक और आचार आदि में किया जाता है. कलौंजी की सब्जी भी बनाई जाती है.

कलौंजी में एंटी-आक्सीडेंट भी मौजूद होता है जो कैंसर जैसी बीमारी से बचाता है.
कलौंजी का तेल कफ को नष्ट करने वाला और रक्तवाहिनी नाड़ियों को साफ़ करने वाला होता है. इसके अलावा यह खून में मौजूद दूषित व अनावश्यक द्रव्य को भी दूर रखता है. कलौंजी का तेल सुबह ख़ाली पेट और रात को सोते समय लेने से बहुत से रोग समाप्त होते हैं. गर्भावस्था के समय स्त्री को कलौंजी के तेल का उपयोग नहीं कराना चाहिए इससे गर्भपात होने की सम्भावना रहती है.

कलौंजी का तेल बनाने के लिए 50 ग्राम कलौंजी पीसकर ढाई किलो पानी में उबालें. उबलते-उबलते जब यह केवल एक किलो पानी रह जाए तो इसे
ठंडा होने दें. कलौंजी को पानी में गर्म करने पर इसका तेल निकलकर पानी के ऊपर तैरने लगता है. इस तेल पर हाथ फेरकर तब तक कटोरी में पोछें जब तक पानी के ऊपर तैरता हुआ तेल खत्म न हो जाए. फिर इस तेल को छानकर शीशी में भर लें और इसका प्रयोग औषधि के रूप में करें.

आयुर्वेद कहता है कि इसके बीजों की ताकत सात साल तक नष्ट नहीं होती. दमा, खांसी, एलर्जीः एक कप गर्म पानी में एक चम्मच शहद तथा आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर सुबह निराहार (भोजन से पूर्व) पी लेना चाहिए, फिर रात में भोजन के बाद उसी प्रकार आधा चम्मच कलौंजी और एक चम्मच शहद गर्म पानी में मिलाकर इस मिश्रण का सेवन कर लेना चाहिए. इस प्रकार 40 दिनों तक प्रतिदिन दो बार पिया जाए. सर्दी के ठंडे पदार्थ वर्जित हैं.

मधुमेहः एक कप काली चाय में आधा चाय का चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर सुबह नाश्ते से पहले पी लेना चाहिए. फिर रात को भोजन के पश्चात सोने से पहले एक कप चाय में एक चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर पी लेना चाहिए. चिकनाई वाले पदार्थों के उपयोग से बचें. इस इलाज के साथ अंगे्रजी दवा का उपयोग होता है तो उसे जारी रखें और बीस दिनों के पश्चात शर्करा की जांच करा लें. यदि शक्कर नार्मल हो गई हो तो अंग्रेजी दवा बंद कर दें, किंतु कलौंजी का सेवन करते रहें.

हृदय रोगः एक कप दूध में आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर प्रतिदिन दो बार प्रयोग करें. इस तरह दस दिनों तक उपचार चलता रहे. चिकनाई वाले पदार्थों का सेवन न करें.

नेत्र रोगों की चिकित्साः नेत्रों की लाली, मोतियाबिंद, आंखों से पानी का जाना, आंखों की तकलीफ और आंखों की नसों का कमजोर होना आदि में एक कप गाजर के जूस में आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल दो चम्मच शहद मिलाकर दिन में दो बार सुबह (निराहार) और रात में सोते समय लेना चाहिए. इस प्रकार 40 दिनों तक इलाज जारी रखें. नेत्रों को धूप की गर्मी से बचाएं.

अपच या पेट दर्द में आप कलौंजी का काढा बनाइये फिर उसमे काला नमक मिलाकर सुबह शाम पीजिये. दो दिन में ही आराम देखिये.
कैंसर के उपचार में कलौजी के तेल की आधी बड़ी चम्मच को एक ग्लास अंगूर के रस में मिलाकर दिन में तीन बार लें.

हृदय रोग, ब्लड प्रेशर और हृदय की धमनियों का अवरोध के लिए जब भी कोई गर्म पेय लें, उसमें एक छोटी चम्मच तेल मिला कर लें.

सफेद दाग और लेप्रोसीः 15 दिन तक रोज पहले सेब का सिरका मलें, फिर कलौंजी का तेल मलें.

एक चाय की प्याली में एक बड़ी चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल डाल कर लेने से मन शांत हो जाता है और तनाव के सारे लक्षण ठीक हो जाते हैं.

कलौंजी के तेल को हल्का गर्म करके जहां दर्द हो वहां मालिश करें और एक बड़ी चम्मच तेल दिन में तीन बार लें. 15 दिन में बहुत आराम मिलेगा.

एक बड़ी चम्मच कलौंजी के तेल को एक बड़ी चम्मच शहद के साथ रोज सुबह लें, आप तंदुरूस्त रहेंगे और कभी बीमार नहीं होंगे; स्वस्थ और निरोग रहेंगे .

याददाश्त बढाने के लिए और मानसिक चेतना के लिए एक छोटी चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल 100 ग्राम उबले हुए पुदीने के साथ सेवन करें.

पथरी हो तो कलौंजी को पीस कर पानी में मिलाइए फिर उसमे शहद मिलाकर पीजिये, १०-११ दिन प्रयोग करके टेस्ट करा लीजिये.कम न हुई हो तो फिर १०-११ दिन पीजिये.


किसी को बार-बार हिचकी आ रही हो तो कलौंजी के चुटकी भर पावडर को ज़रा से शहद में मिलकर चटा दीजिये.

अगर किसी को पागल कुत्ते ने काट लिया हो तो आधा चम्मच से थोडा कम करीब तीन ग्राम कलौंजी को पानी में पीस कर पिला दीजिये, एक दिन
में एक ही बार ३-४ दिन करे.

जुकाम परेशान कर रहा हो तो इसके बीजों को गरम कीजिए ,मलमल के कपडे में बांधिए और सूंघते रहिये.

दो दिन में ही जुकाम और सर दर्द दोनों गायब . कलौंजी की राख को पानी से निगलने से बवासीर में बहुत लाभ होता है.

कलौंजी का उपयोग चर्म रोग की दवा बनाने में भी होता है. कलौंजी को पीस कर सिरके में मिलकर पेस्ट बनाए और मस्सों पर लगा लीजिये. मस्से कट जायेंगे. मुंहासे दूर करने के लिए कलौंजी और सिरके का पेस्ट रात में मुंह पर लगा कर सो जाएँ.

जब सर्दी के मौसम में सर दर्द सताए तो कलौंजी और जीरे की चटनी पीसिये और मस्तक पर लेप कर लीजिये.

घर में कुछ ज्यादा ही कीड़े-मकोड़े निकल रहे हों तो कलौंजी के बीजों का धुँआ कर दीजिये.

गैस/पेट फूलने की समस्या --50 ग्राम जीरा, 25 ग्राम अजवायन, 15 ग्राम कलौंजी अलग-अलग भून कर पीस लें और उन्हें एक साथ मिला दें. अब 1 से 2 चम्मच मीठा सोडा, 1 चम्मच सेंधा नमक तथा 2 ग्राम हींग शुद्ध घी में पका कर पीस लें. सबका मिश्रण तैयार कर लें. गुनगुने पानी की सहायता से 1 या आधा चम्मच खाएं.

Depression During Pregnancy - How Can You Manage it?

Depression During Pregnancy - How Can You Manage it?

Pregnancy is that wonderful and beautiful phase that most women rejoice about. However, many may find it hard to believe that pregnancy can bring with it a condition known as ‘antenatal depression’. This is a common condition in expecting mothers and should not be ignored.

Depression during pregnancy like regular depression is a clinical condition and requires further investigation and management. Pregnancy is related to the female hormones and therefore, mood swings are common (as during PMS and menopause). However, depressed pregnant women would typically have the following associated symptoms too.

  1. Altered eating habits

  2. Altered sleeping patterns (too much or too less)

  3. Loss of attention/ability to focus

  4. Losing interest in activities which usually interest the person

  5. Feeling very anxious

  6. Constant feeling of sadness

  7. Uncertainty about the future

  8. Feeling of worthlessness

  9. Suicidal tendencies

It has been noted about 25% of women can get depressed during pregnancy for varying periods of time. Some potential reasons for this are as below.

  1. Strained relationships: One of the most important factors for a healthy pregnancy is a happy relationship, not just with the partner, but with immediate and close family members with whom there is a high level of regular interaction.

  2. Work stress: For working women, a stressful office environment could take a toll on their moods.

  3. Previous miscarriages: This can cause anxiety and depression about possible repeat incident.

  4. Potential complications: If the periodic examinations showed up possibility for complications in pregnancy, the chance of depression in the mother increase.

How it affects pregnancy?

A depressed mother would not be able to care for herself and  therefore, the baby may not get adequate nutrition for its development. Additionally, the potential for nicotine and alcohol abuse increases, which also negatively impacts the baby’s growth. There could be low birth weight, premature birth and developmental delays after birth.

How it can be managed?

While the hormonal changes during pregnancy causes mood swings, diagnosing if it is depression is important. A consultation with a psychiatrist may be required for some women.

Some of the options available for treatment include support groups, individual counseling, and medications.

  1. It is important to understand that this is a common condition and you are not the only one going through this. Talking to other women who feel depressed can help in mood uplifting of all involved.

  2. If you are too shy about it, individual counseling could be the next best thing.

  3. Stress management including light exercise, music, meditation, rest, diet, and support from close friends and family are highly recommended.

  4. Since most antidepressants would reach the baby, it is advisable to avoid these less you need them as a last resort. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Hello, she should take plenty of fluid, seasonal fruits. Whether baby would be fair or dark it is decided by your genes (hereditary) not by diet. So she should take healthy & balanced diet.
