PCOD or Polycystic Ovarian Disease, seems to be on the rise nowadays with even young adults suffering from it. Ayurveda lists three important aspects of good health, viz; Aharam, Nidra and Brahmacharya, meaning food, sleep and sex. Untimely and unhealthy meals contribute greatly to a host of diseases including PCOD and cancers, and every ailment can manifest in a person whose food habits are not right. PCOD is a disease following hormonal imbalances, which could often lead to amenorrhoea, weight gain and abnormal facial and body hair growth.
Two common ayurvedic drugs that address PCOD and amenorrhoea are Ashoka vati and Raja Pravartini Vati. Both need proper guidance while consumption. Raja Pravartini Vati consists of Aloe vera, purified green vitriol (a kind of Ferrous sulphate), Borax and asafoetida. This is very effective in re-establishing the menstrual cycle.
