5. What is Ayurvedic concept of polycystic ovarian disease?
According to Ayurveda, PCOS is basically an imbalance of Kapha dosha . Taking a closer look,
Vata is responsible for following -
- movement of follicles,
- rupturing of the ovary wall to release the mature ovum
- movement of ovum towards the uterus
- movement of finger like projections that guide the ovum into the fallopian tube
Pitta is responsible for the action of hormones - the energy of transformation.
Kapha's heavy qualities are responsible for
- nurturing the growth of follicle in ovarian cycle.
- nourishing the development of tissues
PCOS occurs when kapha blocks vata and pitta thus obstructing the movement and suppressing the transformation. Due to the excessive kapha and ama stored in artavavaha srota - a channel that carries menstrual fluid and ovum - the vata in the ovarian cycle gets totally blocked. Due to vata blockage, Pitta gets blocked resulting in the disorder in the hormones that carry the energy of transformation. The stored kapha and ama expresses itself as cysts inside the ovary. Pitta aggravation manifests as acne and body hairs.
Thus Ayurveda takes a multiple approach in removing the toxins through purification therapy, herbal supplements and lifestyle changes. When the dosha gets balanced, the symptoms gradually disappear and get cured.
