I have irregular periods and hormonal imbalance I have tried a lot to loose weight but I can't so please guide me.

I have irregular periods and hormonal imbalance I have tried a lot to loose weight but I can't so please guide me.
Hello High androgen levels lead to symptoms such as body hair growth, acne, irregular periods -- and weight gain. Because the weight gain is triggered by male hormones, it is typically in the abdomen. That is where men tend to carry weight. 1. Decide on an appropriate calorie goal and stick to it. 2.Eat a low glycemic index diet. 3.Eat several small meals a day. 4.Load up on protein. 5.Choose resistant starches for carbs. 6.Give up soft drinks and other liquid calories. 7.Drink green tea. 8.Exercise daily. 9. Get plenty of rest. 10. Avoid crash or fad diets. 11. Women with PCOS who took flaxseed daily saw a decrease in both male hormones and in hirsutism, or unwanted facial and body hair. 12. Take homeopathic treatment for bets result.

Treatment on lines of Ayurveda requires the constitution analysis (mind body type) and pulse examination. The symptoms mentioned above indicate towards PCO . So plz go through USG; S.FSH. LH. Testosterone. Thyroid profile etc after consulting gyne expert and after that she can be managed with Ayurveda therapy when the diagnosis is certain. All the best.

Infertility - Is There A Way Ayurveda Can Help You?

Infertility - Is There A Way Ayurveda Can Help You?

Kids are an important element in marriage, but there are many couples who try for many years to conceive a baby and may not succeed at all. The cases of low sperm count in male have been noticed frequently these days due to an unhealthy lifestyle. But also there exists the case of infertility, extensively in women lately.

Causes Of Infertility
There can be a number of reasons behind the case of infertility in women, among which these can be the most common ones,

  1. Unhealthy diet that consists of high amount of spicy and junk items,
  2. Unhealthy lifestyle that leads to insomnia quite often,
  3. The anxiety that often leads to depression.

Ayurvedic ways of treating infertility

Often couples who have tried many years finally search other ways such as surrogacy, adoption and others. But in Ayurveda, there are many tested ways that can treat infertility and couples can have their own kids.

  1. Healthy Diet: As per Ayurveda, diet plays an important role in treating cases of infertility. One should be careful about the diet thing and some of the important items to incorporate in daily eating should be:
    • Dairy Products,
    • Whole grains,
    • Fresh vegetables and fruits,
    • Dry Fruits and Nuts.
  2. Herbs Treating Infertility: Some of the herbs from the Mother Nature have been suggested by Ayurveda that are quite effective in treating problems of infertility in women.
    • Ashoka: This is an evergreen plant with the scientific name of saraca asoca. The bark of the tree is said to have an oestrogenic element that is helpful in menstrual issues such as dysmenorrhoea where the bleeding is extremely high. Also, the herb is also known for its stimulatory effects that stimulate the ovarian tissue that helps in treating infertility.
    • Lodhra: The evergreen plant of Symplocos racemosa has yellowish flowers along with black drupes on it. The bark of the Lodhra plant is known for its anti-inflammatory properties that are very helpful in treating many of the female uterine disorders. Also, it is known to stimulate and increase the reproduction hormone levels of the body, hence treating infertility in women.
    • Shatavari: The shrub is asparagus racemosus that has phytoestrogen compound in it. The bark is hence found with properties such as galactagogue, aphrodisiac and also demulcent. Hence, it has an oestrogenic effect on the genital organ as well as the mammary glands of the women. The major benefit is that it increases fertility by nourishing the ovum.
    • Kumari: Kumari or known as Aloe barbadensis is a plant with a small stem that is covered with leaves. It is often used to treat skin and stomach related issues. Also, it is helpful in the production of the progesterone and oestradiol by the ovarian cells, hence it treats infertility.

Infertility is an increased concern these days and hence a number of people are taking help of modern science. But in order to stay away from any side effects and have effective results, it is great to be in touch with the Ayurvedic treatments.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have a fatty liver with 16.9 cm size. Is it safe to conceive? Would their be any complications or risks?

I have a fatty liver with 16.9 cm size. Is it safe to conceive? Would their be any complications or risks?
Hi dear it can be safe to become pregnant if you have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) if you do not have significant scar tissue in your liver. NAFLD is a condition in which excess fat builds up in the liver in people who drink little or no alcohol (indicating that alcohol is not responsible for the disease). Some people have liver swelling and scarring in addition to excess fat in their liver, a condition called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH. Pregnancy may be more risky for women who have NASH. You may need to work closely with your obstetrician/gynecologist as well as your hepatologist (liver specialist) regarding the safety and timing of your pregnancy. Your doctor (s) may want to monitor you especially closely if you do become pregnant to make sure that your liver is functioning properly and that you and your baby are as healthy as possible. Fatty liver is a common condition of the liver due to modern life-style, food, and drink habits. Collection of fats in liver cells is called fatty liver. This condition is also called steatosis hepatis or steatorrhoeic hepatosis. Fatty liver by itself though abnormal, is a relatively harmless condition. Liver is the largest organ in the human body. It plays a vital role in keeping the biochemical balance intact. Why fatty liver occurs, is unknown. A fatty diet or overeating by itself never results in a fatty liver. The fat may come from increased absorption from the intestines or from elsewhere in the body. But, putting it generally, the liver loses its capacity to eliminate fats deposited within it. Yet, 70% of persons suffering from NASH are found to be obese. Homeopathy addresses the underlying causes behind fatty liver, improves liver functions and reduces the symptoms as well as modifies the disease process. Fatty liver is partly reversible condition if treated in the early stages. In later stages, it can help to improve the liver functions. Well chosen homeopathic medicines can help control and reduce Fatty liver disease. Homeopathy is recommended for cases of Fatty Liver. A homeopathic constitutional treatment will give you best results naturally You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects Medicines will reach you via courier services.

I have very dry and itchy vagina. Intercourse is so painful for me. M also taking progesterone release tabs for conceiving. Whts wrong with me.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine & Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- A variety of conditions can cause vaginal dryness. Reduced estrogen levels are the main cause. Vaginal dryness is often induced by deficiency of progesterone domination, poor vaginal blood circulation, or lack of androgen hormones, oxytocin, prostaglandins, nitric oxide and cGMP release in the vaginal/arterial parasympathetic erectile nervous endings. There are many other herbs that help alleviate vaginal dryness. Aloevera is helpful for infections and is known for its healing effects. It can be applied topically to relieve itching or taken internally or used in a douche. Calendula and vitamin A vaginal suppositories are soothing and healing. Pau d'arco contains natural antibiotic agents and has a healing effect.
