The ovary is an ovum producing reproductive organ. It is often found in pairs, as part of the vertebrate female reproductive system, and helps in developing the secondary sex characteristics in the female body.
An ovary is black in colour and located along the lateral wall of the uterus in Broad ligament a region called the ovarian fossa. Each ovary is nearly 4 cm x 3 cm x 2 cm in size. Ovaries in females are analogous to testes in males, in a way that both are gonads and endocrine glands.
Among these, PCOS is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age, affecting as many as one out of every seven Indian women. Often, the symptoms begin during the teen years.
In this chapter, we will mainly discuss PCOS and its cure through a cleansing process.
This cleanse will help jump start weight loss, remove unwanted toxins, hormones and chemicals from your body and bring your body into balance. It benefits overall reproductive and general health. You can try any of these ingredients/methods, but do not do them simultaneously.
While making curd from milk, add 20-25 gms of cinnamon in milk. This curd, during the process of fermentation, absorbs the medicinal properties of cinnamon. Eat a cup of this curd thrice a day for two weeks. Prepare fresh curd every day.
Add 20-25 gms of cinnamon sticks in half a glass of water. Put it in the freezer, so that water becomes ice. The pressure of the ice squeezes medicine from the cinnamon. Take the ice out after 5-10 hours and let it turn to water. Chew the cinnamon and spit it out when it becomes flavourless. Drink this water empty stomach three times a day. Do it for four days while making fresh medicine every day.
Mix 15 ml of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it. If you are uncomfortable with the taste of vinegar, start with a lower dose of 5 ml and then move onto the standard dose of 15 ml, two or three times a day. If the taste is too strong, mix the apple cider vinegar with orange or any other fruit juice.
Drink it daily in the morning and before meals. Within four days, you will notice the symptoms of PCOS receding.
According to author Louise Lacey, women’s menstrual cycles are naturally wired to be in sync with the moon. In all early societies, before industrialisation and consumption of processed food, women ovulated at the full moon and menstruated at the new moon. While this was natures default setting, hormonal disruption due to prolonged external stimuli has caused havoc and chaos in women’s menstrual cycles:
The concept of manipulating light to regulate menstrual cycles is called lunaception. Lunaception, as the name suggests, follows the pattern of the moon to increase fertility. Sleep in complete darkness, except for three nights in each cycle, i.e., on the 14th, 15th and 16th, when you can use a dim light. By avoiding intercourse on these three days, women can develop regular and healthy menstrual cycles. You will find tremendous improvement after three months of practicing lunaception and notice more energy, easier weight management, less PMS and more.
The answer is insulin resistance. Normally, women with PCOS do not process insulin properly and struggle to lose weight. Even a small weight loss of 5-6 kgs can be helpful in making menstrual periods more regular. Weight loss also has been found to improve cholesterol and insulin levels, and relieve symptoms, such as excess hair growth and acne.
Irregular menstrual periods can lead to infertility and in some women, the development of PCOS.
PCOS is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. A PCOS Cleanse helps your reproductive organs by making your cycles regular and assisting the ovulation process.
I am embarrassed to talk about such problems. Having PCOS can be difficult, since most women are quite embarrassed by their appearance. Others may worry about not being able to get pregnant. Some women with PCOS might feel depressed. You can discuss it with your mother, sister, husband or friends. Find people who will take your problem seriously.
