Hello doctor,

I have been diagnosed with PCOD. My weight is increasing; sometimes, I have mood swings and cravings for food.

Kindly help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. PCOS is a group of diseases. It happens due to hormonal imbalance. Mainly it occurs along with hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism leads to weight gain. It would be best if you investigated your thyroid profile. PCOD can be treated naturally through ayurvedic medicines and yoga practice. I suggest you to take the following medications.

  1. Take the tablet Medohara Vati (Pure Guggulu, Shilajita Sat, Haritaki extracts, Baheda extracts.) twice daily.
  2. Take the tablet Hyponid twice (Yashad bhasma with purified asphaltum) daily.
  3. Take tablet Thyrocap (Elettaria cardamomum, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Cinnamomum tamala) twice daily.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
