If have been diagnosed you with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS don’t worry and here’s why
According to a study done back in 2013, PCOS affects 5% to 10% of females between 18 to 44 years of age, so you’re not alone. It is also a very treatable condition.
I assume at this point you have done a lot of research about possible medications, diet, and lifestyle modifications. Although the internet has a lot of information like this, you’ll find very little about how detoxification helps to treat PCOS. Therefore, if you are trying to get pregnant with PCOS, you should detox your ovaries.
What Toxins Are Most Likely to Affect the Ovaries? What Do You Need to Detox?
To live a toxin-free life you should have proper information about the toxins that are harmful to ovarian function. PCOS not only affects fertility, but other systems of the body also, most importantly, cardiovascular health. Therefore, detoxifying ovaries would help you get pregnant as well as live a healthy life with less cardiovascular diseases and chronic conditions like diabetes and cancer.
Toxins along with the sources that are most likely to affect the ovaries include:
- Lead- can be found in water, leaded gasoline, and lead-based paint in homes.
- Mercury- can be found in water contaminated by industrial waste and sewage.
- Manganese- can be found in water contaminated by sewage and burning of natural gas.
- Cadmium- can be found in water contaminated by sewage and phosphate fertilizers.
- Organochlorine Compounds- can be found in chlorinated pesticides
- Bisphenol A (BPA)- can be found in plastic containers and canned food
- Organophosphate- can be found in pesticides
- Air Pollutants- can be found in pesticides and herbicides
- Tobacco- smoking
How Do These Toxins Affect Ovaries?
According to different studies, environmental toxins are now considered a primary cause of female infertility. The toxins act in the following ways:
- Imbalance of female reproductive hormones
- Poor reproductive function
- Poor oocyte maturation
- Poor egg release
- Difficulty getting pregnant and staying pregnant
- Early aging of oocytes
- Pesticides and insecticides can cause ovarian atrophy and dose-dependent follicular atresia.
Ways to Detox the Ovaries
You don’t have to follow a strict diet or do intense gastrointestinal cleansing to detox your ovaries. However, do not forget that “a healthy gut is a way to improve fertility.” Following are some easy way to detox your ovaries naturally:
Drink detox water regularly
Detox water aka lemon water is probably the easiest and simplest way to cleanse your ovaries. Add half lemon to quarter cup water and drink early in the morning. Detox water gives vitamin C and antioxidants to the body and improves circulation to reproductive organs, including ovaries. Lemon water also detoxifies the liver improving the hormonal balance.
Eat a simple diet
A simple life is the best life! It is easy to make and digest. You can follow your own Detox Diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, fiber, and organic produce.
Exercising regularly can help improve blood circulation to the reproductive organs, including ovaries. Oxygen, nutrients, and reproductive hormones easily reach an adequate amount to the organs through the proper blood supply. It also helps efficiently remove toxins from the body. There is no need to do heavy weight lifting or strenuous exercise. Instead early morning walks, running, or simple training will work wonders.
Specific cleansing herbs

Castor oil therapy
Therapy with castor oil packs is well known for improving circulation to ovaries, fallopian tubes, eggs, and overall promoting their health. Reproductive hormones are efficiently delivered to the ovaries and promote the development and release of mature follicles. Castor oil therapy is also known for its cleansing effects on the ovaries through the flushing out of toxins.
A fertility massage is one of the ancient and widely practiced techniques for promoting reproduction. Massage in the specific areas improves blood circulation to reproductive organs, delivering reproductive hormones and nutrients, and promoting healthy ovulation. Adequate blood supply also ensures efficient toxin removal from the body. Find an Arvigo Practitioner near you: www.ArvigoTherapy.com
Epsom Salt is well-known and widely used in detox baths. It is incredibly beneficial for improving ovarian function and fertility because it reduces inflammation which is the primary pathogenic event in PCOS. A detox bath with epsom salts will help the body to flush out toxins naturally and reduce stress.
A healthy mind is a healthy body. If you’ll stay away from stress and keep your mind positive, your bodily functions will align naturally. The fertility mindset is to stay fresh. The more your systems work in harmony; the more your reproductive organs will function adequately. In short, your polycystic ovaries will ovulate regularly.
It is amazing how a healthy lifestyle and minor changes in diet can have an immense impact on our health. The reproductive system is the most sensitive system which gets affected by small changes in any other system. PCOS is also a consequence of deranged metabolism and hormonal imbalance. Therefore, the best and most natural way to combat PCOS is by detoxification and lifestyle changes.
