Every 5th women needs to read this - how to beat the condition called PCOD/PCOS
According to a study, one in five women (within the reproductive age) runs the risk of suffering from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) -A hormonal condition that causes cysts to develop around the ovaries and throws ovulation out of sync. Thus many suffer from irregular periods and It can also lead to infertility.
PCOS experts say the condition is lifestyle-related. Sudden weight gain due to excessive sugar intake (which makes one insulinresistant), toxic junk food, stress and erratic sleep habits are just a few causes. "Chemicals in pesticides sprayed on fruits and vegetables can also lead to hormonal imbalance ultimately causing PCOS".
Classic symptoms for many are -weight gain, acne, mood swings, hot flashes, fatigue and low self-esteem. Some to the extent of not having natural period, or ovulation for more than 15 years.
How do you conquer PCOS, Here is an insight.
Exercise regularly
Exercise helps you shed excess weight, correspondingly boosting metabolism and improving insulin sensitivity. "You could walk and lift weights, run on the treadmill. Do it for five days a week for 30 minutes," become physically active.
Nutrition Defeciency :
Research has found that magnesium, calcium and vitamin D deficiency in the body is directly linked to the disorder. Go for gluten free whole grains, green leafy veggies, legumes, nuts, sesame and sunflower seeds to up your magnesium intake. Both calcium and Vitamin D help maintain the female anatomy. Cod liver oil, eggs, salmon, mackerel, tuna and whole-fat yoghurt or other dairy products are good food sources of Vitamin D. Calcium can be found in kale, turnip, collard, and mustard greens. Many times just food intake is not enough.
Beating stress
Anxiety and depression cause hormones to be released into the blood.Hence, stress plays a detrimental role in causing and accelerating symptoms of the disorder. Stress and PCOS can both reduce fertility, gut function, and mental clarity.Both cause weight gain, adversely alter food choices and hinder regular exercise. Reducing stress helps flick the hormonal switch back in your favour. Listen to soothing music, and get adequate sleep.
Sign up for yoga 
Yoga for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a powerful strategy. Regular practise can help weight loss, anxiety, depression, detoxification, stress reduction and general wellbeing. Yoga can also help reduce muscle aches, pains and adhesion that plague patients suffering from PCOS.
Addressing Hypothyroidism
A sluggish thyroid is more common in women with PCOS. It can cause weight gain, difficulty losing extra kilos, lack of ovulation and infertility. PCOS and hypothyroidism commonly occur together and can be due to an autoimmune response or nutritional deficiencies. Depending on the cause, one can opt for a course of treatment and follow the recommended diet depending on the severity of the condition.
First signs of type 2 diabetes - PCOS
can be a red flag for the on set of Type 2 diabetes. A part of the problem with PCOS is high in sulin resistance. Resistance in creases insulin levels in the body.
This affects normal ovulation, or limits the maturation process of the released egg, which affects fertility and the ability to con ceive.
- Women who are insulin resistant are four to five times more likely to suffer a miscarriage since the insulin imbalance makes it difficult for the embryo to attach properly to the uterus.
