Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects women of reproductive age resulting
in hormonal, reproductive and metabolic abnormalities with an associated constellation of symptoms
including disturbed menstrual cycle, hyperandrogenism, acne, weight gain, hair loss, diabetic
predisposition, depression, mood swings and sub-fertility. Although a very complex disorder, PCOS can be
managed optimally in some cases with the help of lifestyle intervention, nutritional therapy and Ayurveda.
The subject of this study was a 30-year-old obese female with a clinical history of PCOS due to which she
was unable to conceive. Her blood tests showed hyperinsulinism and borderline high cholesterol. She had
low immunity and low energy coupled with high stress levels.
The purpose of this case study was to determine the benefits of an Integrated Approach, that included
nutritional therapy, ayurvedic herbs, vitamins, minerals, lifestyle modifications, along with exercise and
counselling, in the management of PCOS and its comorbidities.
During the 12-week treatment with the Integrated Approach, the patient lost 6 kg weight, felt more
energetic, had reduction in fasting serum insulin levels, improved body composition, improved immunity
and reduced stress that culminated in a successful pregnancy.

Keywords: Integrated approach, PCOS, Ayurveda, Nutrition, Conception.
