How to Balance Your Doshas for Better Women's Health

Gynecological Disorders like PCOS, endometriosis, and menstrual problems are extremely prevalent, affecting millions of women. Conventional medicine relies heavily on hormonal drugs, painkillers, and surgeries which are not always effective and have side effects.

At Dr. P. Alikuttys Ayurveda & Modern Hospital Kottakkal (home page), we offer a holistic Ayurvedic approach to women's health issues. Here's an overview:

Major Disorders we Specialize in

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (Artava Dushti): PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects ovulation, causing small cysts on the ovaries. It can cause irregular periods, weight gain, acne, and excess hair growth. Insulin resistance and genetics are thought to contribute to its development.

  • Endometriosis: Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing severe pain, heavy bleeding, and infertility. Its exact cause is unknown, but retrograde menstruation, genetics, and environmental factors are suspected.

  • Uterine Fibroids (Garbhashaya Granthi): Fibroids are noncancerous growths in the uterus that can cause heavy bleeding, pain, and infertility. Their exact cause is unknown, but genetics, hormones, and reproductive factors are believed to contribute.

  • Menopause (Rajaswala Nivrutti): Menopause marks the natural decrease in female hormone production, leading to hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness.

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (Yonigata Shotha): PID occurs when bacterial infections spread upward from the vagina to the fallopian tubes and ovaries, leading to scarring, infertility, and chronic pelvic pain.

Causes from an Ayurvedic Viewpoint

In Ayurveda, gynecological problems arise predominantly from imbalanced Vata dosha and impaired nutrition to female reproductive tissues. Vata imbalances cause pain, cramps, spasms, while impaired nutrition leads to conditions like PCOS and fibroids.

  • Hormonal Imbalance: Hormones play a crucial role in women's reproductive health. Imbalances in estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones can cause various gynecological issues, including menstrual irregularities, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis etc.

  • Structural Abnormalities: Congenital or acquired abnormalities in the female reproductive organs such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and benign tumors of the uterus can cause pain, heavy bleeding, infertility and other complications.

  • Lifestyle Factors: Poor eating habits, lack of exercise, obesity, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can contribute to gynecological problems.

  • Stress: Chronic stress can disrupt the menstrual cycle and exacerbate symptoms of PMS, endometriosis and other gynecological conditions.

  • Genetics: Some gynecological problems can be inherited from parents passed down through genes. For Instance some cases of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and Endometriosis have been found to run in families.
