Polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS is very common among women of reproductive age. This condition affects the ovaries and is one of the main causes of infertility. The increase in hair loss is one of the other effects of this disease. According to Ayurveda, PCOS brings the Kapha dosha that can normally be found in the upper half of the body down along with the Pittasha. This affects the Prana-Vyana-Apana axis. One of the impacts of this imbalance is the loss of nutrition in tissues, including hair follicles. Without proper nutrition, the hair follicles begin to die and fall. Therefore, addressing the Prana-Vyana-Apana axis is a way to treat hair loss caused by PCOS.
Some forms of Ayurvedic treatment that can be used for this include:
