Hello doctor,

I am 29 years old and a mother of 2.5 year old girl. I have PCOD and I am obese. I am continually taking oral contraceptives to get my periods. I have Kalarchi Kai powder but I do not know how to use it?



Welcome to

Kalarchi Kai powder is a well known Siddha medicine to manage PCOD (polycystic ovary syndrome). It is very effective in such kind of issues but It will take some time.

Investigations to be done:

USG lower abdomen, and thyroid profile.

Treatment plan:

Take Kalarchi Kaai powder 3 gm twice a day with warm normal water after meals regularly for three months.

Preventive measures:

Avoid spicy, fried, and junk foods. Drink plenty of water. Do regular Kapalbhati and Pranayama like Anuloma Vilom Nadi Sodhan and Bhramari.
If you are a breastfeeding mother, then you should not take this powder.
