The Ayurvedic methodology of treating menstrual disorders is truly comprehensive. It is a proper blend of traditional Ayurvedic therapies including panchakarma, internal Ayurvedic formulations, diet and lifestyle management. The treatment aims at restoration of functional balance including that of metabolism and hormones. The significance of panchakarma lies in the fact that menstrual disorders not only create issues with the uterine system but also lead to many physical and emotional complications, of which obesity is the most common one. The effectiveness of panchakarma procedures in treating women's disorders like polycystic ovarian syndrome, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, female infertility, and menopausal issues are well established through various clinical studies.
