What are some natural home remedies for PCOS?

Dr. Sankar Das Mahapatra

Infertility Specialist
PCOS requires women to drastically alter their dietary habits and lifestyle: • Have a Healthy Breakfast: Always have breakfast within 30 minutes after you wake up. This helps maintain your blood pressure and keeps you full until lunchtime. Avocado and eggs are a great combination. You should also ingest leafy vegetables since they contains lots of phytonutrients that ward off inflammation. • Cut Down on Animal Protein: Women can increase their fertility by having more plant-based protein than animal. • Include the Right Sort of Carbs: All carbs are not equal. Some of them affect your health considerably, like white bread, baked goods, and pasta. Others are important to maintain your hormonal levels. PCOS patients often find it difficult to stick to a low-carb diet, such as Paleo and Atkins. Regularly have millet, buckwheat, quinoa, and rice. • Eliminate Caffeine from Your Diet: Caffeine has an adverse effect on your hormones, including reduced fertility. Drinking three cups of coffee in one day raises the possibility of miscarriage by a whopping 74 percent. If that’s not all, coffee reduces vitamin B that is necessary for hormonal balance and ovulation. • Avoid Toxins: Steer clear of everyday chemicals like lawn care products, body and health care products, cleaning solutions, and home pesticides since they disrupt the endocrine system and cause neurological, reproductive, and immune system side-effects. • Keep Your Microbiome Happy: Bring balance to your microbiome and metabolize estrogen by supplementing with natural probiotics. Remember, your diet is a part of the overall polycystic ovary syndrome treatment plan and you need to stick to known home remedies and cures to bring the condition under control.
