A Double Threat To Your Health - PCOS And Fibroid!

Hormones are essential chemicals produced by the endocrine glands that help to regulate important processes of the body such as reproduction, metabolism, regulating mood and stress levels as well as appetite. Hormonal imbalance takes place when there is either over or under production of the hormones within the bloodstream.

Hormone imbalance is reflected in the body in the form of disorders. Important functions in the human body like that of conceiving are impaired. Two of the most common conditions caused by hormonal imbalance in women are PCOS and Fibroids.

It is said that one out of every ten women in India suffer from a disorder of the endocrine system known as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Women diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome face difficulty conceiving a child. However, the effects of PCOS can be reversed with medications.

Symptoms of PCOS are:

  1. Causes acne and excessive facial hair growth. This happens because it ramps up the production of the male hormone androgen.
  2. During PCOS, the body may not have sufficient quantity of progesterone. As a result, menstrual cycles become irregular or stop occurring completely.
  3. Makes the patient susceptible to health issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Many women who suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome do not have any cysts on the ovaries therefore the word, ‘polycystic’ might not hold water in their case.

Causes of PCOS:
Doctors find it difficult to determine the exact reason for PCOS. However, they are of the view that

  • It is genetic
  • It occurs as a result of high insulin levels in the body.

Homeopathic Treatment for PCOS:

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is curable with the Homeopathic mode of treatment. Homeopathic treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome is very safe and free from any side effect.Which Homeopathic medicine is required to extract the disease from its roots varies from case to case. Both the physical and mental spheres of the patient are thoroughly investigated while prescribing the Homeopathic medicine. The complete cure of PCOS is a time-consuming process and it cannot be expected in a few days. It requires complete observation regarding the change of symptoms in the patient and frequent clinical follow-ups. 

Uterine Fibroid is another condition that wrecks havoc on a woman’s reproductive system. Fibroids are non-cancerous tumours growing within a woman’s uterus. It develops out of the muscular layers of the womb. The size of the fibroid tumours can be that of a small bean or even that of a melon.

Causes of Fibroid -

  1. Higher estrogen or progesterone levels during the reproductive years
  2. Family history of fibroid
  3. Obesity increases risk of fibroids
  4. Consuming alcohol, caffeine and excess of red meat

Types of Fibroids:
There are four kinds of fibroids.

  1. Intramural: Most commonly occurring. The tumour is found embedded within the womb.
  2. Subserosal Fibroids: Extends beyond the walls of the womb. Over time it can grow into pedunculated fibroids.
  3. Submucosal Fibroids: This type pushes itself into the hollows of the womb.
  4. Cervical Fibroids: Cervical fibroids grow in the cervix, which is the nape of the womb.

Symptoms include:

Fibroids do not show symptoms clearly and often treatment is not required for fibroids unless it is evidently affecting the quality of life of the individual. Seek treatment so that future complications can be avoided.

Treatment with Homeopathy: 
One of the best advantages of choosing Homeopathy is that it works without side effects. It addresses the issue rather than the symptom. A surgical procedure mentioned in general treatment does remove the fibroids but there is no guarantee that they won't grow back as the underlying issue of hormonal imbalance remains. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
