Many women are unaware of the fact that they are carrying polycystic ovaries. Polycystic ovaries produce a far greater number of follicles compared to a normal ovary every month. Around five follicles are actually developed by a normal healthy ovary every month, and at least one of these follicles produces a mature egg during the process of ovulation. But a polycystic ovary produces almost double the number of follicles, and though all of them ripen and get bigger, none of them produce any egg.
What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?
If you are suffering from the polycystic ovary syndrome, it would mean that you are having not just one, but more number of cysts. There are many contributing factors because of which they appear and these factors are – genetic predisposition, poor dietary choices, a weakened immune system, accumulation of toxins in the digestive tract (including environmental toxins) and insulin resistance and obesity.
This condition is slightly more risky that having just a single cyst because of the additional pressure on the surrounding organs. The condition can also cause stomach swelling, apart from the usual symptoms of pain in the abdomen and the back; irregular or absence of bleeding; acne; gain in body weight; unwanted hair growth on the face, chest, arms and legs and even infertility.
If you are suffering from PCOS (polycystic ovary) then the best way is to adopt the holistic mode of treatment. Holistic treatments treat the body as whole and gets rid of all the contributing factors, and with this, the symptoms go away too. Conventional remedies on the other hand just treat the symptoms.
