I am Dr. Neeraj Pasricha, Homeopath. Today I will talk about a very common problem i.e. PCOS/PCOD. It is referred to as a condition that leads to an imbalance in the hormonal level in a woman.

Insulin resistance is central to the pathogenesis of PCOD and we Indians are known to have a high prevalence insulin resistance. A woman suffering from this disease develops small to large cyst in their ovaries. This might disrupt the normal function of the ovaries resulting in severe hormonal imbalance.
