Hormonal disbalance from the point of view of Ayurveda
Hormones play a crucial role in health of women. Frequent changes in hormone levels, estrogen, and progesterone especially, negatively affect mood, sexual desire, ovulation, and fertility in females.
Women naturally experience several periods of hormonal imbalances throughout their lifetime during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause, perimenopause and postmenopause.
Medical conditions causing hormonal imbalance in women include:
- polycystic ovary syndrome
- hormones replacement or birth control medication
- early menopause or primary ovarian insufficiency
- ovarian cancer
The most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance are:
- heavy, irregular or painful periods
- night sweats
- vaginal dryness
- breast tenderness
- indigestion, constipation, or diarrhea
- acne just before menstruation
- uterine bleeding not associated with menstruation
- increased hair growth on the face, neck, chest, or back
- infertility or weight gain
In Ayurveda, hormones are known as Dhatu Agni and are considered as a part of Pitta dosha, since they are carried by blood or Rakta Pitta. Ayurveda states that every Vikruti (imbalance) based upon the person’s diet and lifestyle. In treatment of hormonal disbalance, Ayurveda focuses on correcting the dosha imbalance.
