About the Book



A SUCCINCT AND LUCIDLY WRITTEN GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING A DISEASE THAT MORE AND MORE WOMEN IN INDIA ARE SEEKING HELP FOR

The Disease of Today - PCOD

PCOD or Polycystic Ovarian Disease has become a common phenomenon in todays times. Writer and nutritional expert Rujuta Diwekar claims that PCOD has become a common occurrence in the last few years only. Before this it used to be a rare phenomenon.


The sedentary lifestyle of today coupled with the stress, work pressure, tendency to eat non-nutritional and unconventional foods, delayed lunches and dinners, inharmonious balance between health and work has left women highly susceptible to this disease. The focus of problems has shifted from trying to lose weight to being scared of what irregular periods and thyroid problems could do to your body. Rijuta Diwekar tells the readers to explore this chaotic disorder that has seeped into our lifestyle and make necessary changes in our lifestyle before conditions become worse.


The book tells the readers to finally take charge of their bodies and their lifestyle, instead of shifting the blame on the hormones. It talks about the importance of a balanced diet and maintaining a harmony between health and work, so that the women of today can prevent future generations to suffer from increasing bouts of hormonal diseases. It comes as a reality check in the form of a small handbook, answering all your questions about weight and hormones as well as providing solutions. The author explains the science behind it all and explains in detail the nutritional qualities and flaws of the most commonly consumed food items.
