Ayurvedic Treatment For Managing C-Reactive Protein In PCOS With Herbal Remedies


Women are such dedicated creatures. Always busy taking care of someone. Firstly a mother takes care of her daughter and teaches her the same thing, then a daughter takes care of her whole family, understanding their wants and needs. Then she takes care of someone else's family and someone's son, whom she accepts as a husband, then her own children. But between this all she is ignoring something which is very precious to each and every being on this earth and that is her health. She ignores her urges, she tolerates the talks, she forgets her pain and finally develops the undesirable. The undesirable can be anything, it might be mental, it might be physical or both. Such undesirables are because of the lifestyle that a female is forced to follow by circumstances or may by her own will or laziness but conclusion remains the same, "Development of lifestyle disorders". One of such lifestyle disorders is PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome. In this article we will discuss the same and also discuss the raised CRP levels associated with this condition.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, PCOS, C-Reactive Protein In PCOS, Ayurveda, Ayurvedic Treatment, Causes, Diagnosis, Ayurvedic Herbs, Herbal Remedies


Firstly, discussing Polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS, as mentioned above, it's a lifestyle disorder and like other lifestyle disorders it can have a massive impact on the body of a Female. PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age and is characterised by the presence of multiple cysts in either one ovary or in both of the ovaries. These cysts are the result of inability to ovulate due lack of hormones and these cysts are responsible for releasing androgens in the body causing symptoms like unwanted hair growth on chest, neck, chin and back region. These high levels of androgens also results in lowering the already depleting capacity to ovulate thus enhances chances to develop infertility in future. Also, in addition this condition is also responsible for High levels of CRP in the body. CRP is C- reactive protein and is a type of protein that is produced by the liver in response to inflammation in the body. The high levels of CRP in the body along with PCOS is suggestive of risk for Cardiovascular disease.


The common signs of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome are as follows:

  • Abnormal Hair growth: The excess of facial hair growth is seen. It is known as hirsutism. This might affect other parts of the body as well. It affects almost 70% of females suffering from Polycystic ovarian syndrome.
  • Acne: With polycystic ovarian syndrome acne problem is purely associated. Acne over face especially on checks, chin and forehead is noticed along with many other parts of the body.
  • Baldness: Male pattern of baldness or thinning of hairs is seen.
  • Small pieces of excess skin over neck and armpits. These are called skin tags.
  • Dark and thick skin patches on the back of neck, in the armpits and under breasts

Symptoms regarding the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome:

  • Irregular Periods: Abnormal menstruation or missed periods is the most common sign of Polycystic ovarian syndrome.
  • Abnormal Bleeding: The abnormal bleeding can include scanty bleeding or heavy bleeding during periods. Bleeding between two consecutive cycles may also be noticed.
  • Not able to conceive even after a long time of trying (Suggestive of secondary infertility)
  • Weight Gain: Which is especially around the belly or abdomen.

On ultrasonography enlarged ovaries are noticed because of multiple cyst formation and blood tests are usually suggestive of high levels of androgens. High glucose levels may also be seen.

Now let's discuss the most important part of this article and that is the link between High C- reactive protein and Poly cystic ovarian syndrome.


As mentioned before C- reactive protein is an inflammatory marker in the body that is released from the liver. The elevation of CRP in PCOS is because of the inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin- 6 and interleukin -18 along with increase in the levels of leukocytes count. This is because of the low grade chronic inflammation in polycystic ovarian syndrome.

The elevated levels of C- reactive protein is suggestive of risk for Cardiovascular disease. The chances of or risk of cardiovascular disease increases with increase in atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is laying down of cholesterol in the artery causing buildup of plaque. Atherosclerosis is mostly related to obesity. Obesity results in altered blood glucose levels, high blood pressure, abnormal lipid profile and systemic inflammation as well.


Ayurveda has suggested Polycystic ovarian syndrome and other lifestyle disorders as something which is because of the vitiation of doshas. In lifestyle disorders the first and foremost disturbance is seen in Agni or digestion power. When the digestion disturbed it causes products of ama, understood as endotoxins in modern language. These endotoxins then coagulate the srotas or microchannels. These srotas or microchannels are required in the body for free flow of vata dosha along with bodily fluids and when they get clogged, firstly vitiation of vata dosha or kinetic energy takes place which then vitiates kapha and pitta as well. The cycle of polycystic ovarian syndrome can be understood as follows:

  • Due to vitiation of tridosha severe abnormalities in the menstrual cycle of a female is observed. This results in untimely bleeding, excessive, scanty or no per vaginal bleeding.
  • The vitiation of doshas result in hormonal imbalance as initially there is involvement of vata dosha.
  • Then due to hormonal imbalance and vitiated vata dosha, kapha dosha gets involved thus resulting in formation of cysts in the ovary or ovaries.
  • The cyst then releases androgens like testosterone that increases the heat in the body as testosterone is an anabolic steroid and is responsible for regulating body temperature and male features as well. This results in excessive heat production in the body, excessive hair growth on the body, too much sweating and many other symptoms related to Polycystic ovarian syndrome. 
  • Blocked channels and menstrual irregularities keep on vitiating the already vitiated doshas and then slowly results in obesity.
  • Obesity then, as mentioned above is responible for high chances for altering C-reactive protein values thus suggests the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

The Nidan or causative factors in this case of PCOS are very common like deranged sleep patterns, faulty eating habits, not working out, stress etc. In short, this happens when someone usually refuses to take care of themselves. Maybe the aforementioned sentence pinches at heart but deep inside we know where we are wrong and what is to be corrected.

Now if we discuss the Ayurveda treatment for the same, then there are many herbs which can be used in this conditions are as follows:

First and foremost thing is to correct ourselves. If we don't then things can never get better. Better things to opt for are healthy food, home made meals, preferring proper meals over junk food, exercise (you need to do hard work to get better) and take time to understand things instead of instantly stressing yourself.

Secondly herbs like kanchnaar, guggul, Arjun, Lodhra, shatavari, Ashok, brahmi, jatamansi, yashtimadhu, ashwagandha etc will help in this condition impressively. Moreover, minerals like Abhrak, tankan, Loha, mandur etc also give impressive results in case of PCOS.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a lifestyle disorder which has become very common in Females, in India and abroad. A female of reproductive age, ageing between 13-42 years can develop these conditions and thus suffers a lot. Sometimes this condition causes obesity, sometimes obesity causes this condition but the initiation in both of the cases remains the same and that is blocking of microchannels due to production of endotoxins. These endotoxins not only cause one thing but can cause a lot of troubles which might cause one after the other disturbance of the body. That's why it is mentioned in Ayurveda that taking care of "Agni" or "Digestive Power" is equal to taking care of your entire body. In case of any query kindly visit
