Polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) is a hormonal disorder that causes hormonal imbalance in the body with multiple fluid-filled cysts inside the ovaries of the female reproductive system. Taking some ayurvedic measures helps in controlling PCOD. Ashwagandha helps in balancing cortisol levels in the body and controls PCOD symptoms. Cinnamon, taken from the cinnamon tree bark, helps regulate the menstrual cycle in women having PCOS. Lifestyle changes play a major role in controlling PCOD. In Ayurveda, PCOD can be controlled by taking more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Avoid refined sugar, artificial sweeteners, more salt intake in the diet.
