very important - pcos and its treatmentDear Doctor
Recently my elder Sister underwent USG Screening for Pelvis and PCOS was detected. (Age: 25yrs, height: 5'8'', status: Single)
Pls advise me as to how she can get back to her normal healthy self.Also the point to note here is that she does NOT show any typical symptoms of this disorder
a)Her periods are REGULAR and the flow is NORMAL, ALWAYS, she faces NO MC problems. Her cycle is after every 29-31 days regularly, NO pain during MC.
b)She has NO acne problems, her skin has always been crystal clear
c)NO cloths in her MCs
d)She does NOT feel tired or experience ennui, she is very much active and busy with studies
e)She has NO thyroid.
f)She has NO hair loss
Just that she has developed some superficial hair on the legs and chest and stomach, which earlier was not present.
Her weight is 69 Kgs, has put on weight in the past 6 months...(is this okay fr her age and height).
Currently she is NOT taking any medication She strongly believs in homeopathy since Homeopathy removes the problem from the roots and she really wants to get back to her original healthy self. She eats a balanced diet, infact she is a very cheerful and positive person but after receving the PCOS report she has become a little irritable and upset.
Her sleep pattern has been a little disturbed over the past 6 months due to studies and PCOS tension. She does regular search on the net, talks to people, reads books to find the cure and i am also helping her out.

I studied ur case.First of all let me show you some details about this disease and it will solve your queries...
The disorder is characterized by the formation of eight or more follicular cysts of 10 mm or smaller in the ovaries, a process related to the ovary's failure to release an egg (ovum). PCOS is one of the most frequent causes of infertility.
Symptoms may include various menstrual problems, hirsutism (excessive body or facial hair), endocrine abnormalities, acne, obesity, infertility, diabetes with insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia. Even if specific symptoms are not causing an immediate problem, PCOS can have significant long-term effects, including diabetes, heart disease, and endometrial or breast cancer, so seeking treatment is critical.
PCOS treatment decisions depend on symptoms, age, whether or not the patient wants to become pregnant, and the degree of ovarian, adrenal and androgen excess. First line management includes diet modification, weight loss and stress reduction since obesity and stress can contribute to androgen excess. Other management and treatment approaches are directed at addressing specific symptoms (i.e. acne, excess hair growth, menstrual problems, infertility) and at preventing long-term complications, given that PCOS can begin in adolescence or earlier.
Some PCOS symptoms (acne, menstrual irregularity) may affect body image and self-esteem, and may be of concern, especially in adolescent girls. Education and support are important in helping young women cope with the physical and psychological aspects of PCOS.
Hope this will help you to treat your sister.
Now on Homeopathy part we have medicine for this condition and wll be treated succesfully.

drdineshsharma last decadeDear Doctor DineshJi,
Thank you for the prompt reply and guidance. Sir , as stated earlier my Sister does not show any symptons of the disorder, i have a few queries on her behalf:-
1) The medicine 'Rhus Tox 200' which u have suggested, in what form do u have to take it, with or without water and how many drops.
2)Are there any side-effects of this medication
3)You have asked her to report the results after 8 weeks, i mean does she have to undergo Scanning to verify the same and pass on the report to you, is my interpreatation correct Sir?.
4)What should be her weight given the fact that she is quite tall...5 feet 8 inches.
Thank you once again for your valuable guidance. Any other information u need to know about my Sister, pls let me know.
Awaiting your Respnse.
homeoseeker last decadeDear Homeoseeker,
I advise you to give 4 drops of medicine in 5-10 ml of drinking water.Do not take anything for next 30 minutes.
There is no side effect of Homeopathic medicines.
You are right after 8 weeks reply me with sacnning results.In the mean time if any thing happens contact me on mail or here.
drdineshsharma last decadeDear Doctor Dineshji
Thank you so much for the immediate and prompt guidance, will definitely report my sister's progress after 8 weeks, hopefully by then things should become brighter
Thank you once again, in case we need more help or clarification will contact you
homeoseeker last decadeDear Doctor Dineshji,
My sister has started taking Rhus Tox, but she has one more question, after taking the medicines for the prescribed time, her ovaries will be rid of the cysts right and also their structure and size will be restored
Kindly answer the above queries and she feels much confident now after seeing your posts..
Thank you for the valuable guidance.
homeoseeker last decadeDear HomeoSeeker,
Well with treatment it will be restored to its healthy state.But its a slow process.So have patience and do not worry.
As you said she will feel improvement but it is not necessary that her cysts will be over in 8 weeks but she will be relieved and slowly she will be cured.
drdineshsharma last decadeDear Dr.Dinesh ji,
Thank you for the prompt response. Also my sister sounds a little more worried than usual because she will be getting married soon another 6 months time..so here main cause of concern is whether PCOS will be reversed in next 4-6 months also the effects like unwanted hair will be controlled and reversed with RHUS TOX right.And what precautions should she take in future so that PCO never ever re-surfaces.Please guide her on this
Awaiting ur valuable advise
Thank You so much
homeoseeker last decadeDear Homeoseeker,
Well Rhus Tox will take care of every thing but its very difficult to revert it back in 6 months .It needs time to get vured as I told you it will be a slow process and you will be cured.
What can you do for PCOS?
There are several things that an individual can do if they have a tendency towards developing some or all of the elements of PCOS. Much of this involves lifestyle changes to ensure that your weight is kept within normal limits (BMI between 19 and 25).
In addition, because there is a likelihood of developing diabetes in later life and a slightly higher risk of heart disease, low-fat and low-sugar options should be considered when making choices about what to eat or to drink.
Weight loss, or maintaining weight below a certain level, will have the short-term benefit of increasing the likelihood of successful treatment and the long-term benefits of reducing the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
So low fat and low sugar diet and maitain your weight.It will help you.
drdineshsharma last decadeDear Dr.Dineshji,
Thank You so much for the valuable guidance,I will keep you posted on my sister's progress.
Also will mail you in case i need further guidance.
