Homoeopathy, a holistic system of medicine deals rationally with many multisystem endocrinopathies and their psychosomatic bases.

PCOS is a heterogenous, multisystem endocrinopathy with features of oligomenorrhoea, non-ovulation, obesity, hirsutism and infertility. Itoriginates from insulin resistance; hyperinsulinemia and obesity are linked.1

PCOS is a multifactorial. Causes include 1. Genetic, 2. Lifestyle, diet, stress. 3. Hypothalamo pituitary axis dysfunction, 4. Idiopathic i.e. drug induced.2

The case selected for this study is having multisystem endocrinopathies, overactive ovaries resulting in delayed menstrual cycle and sequel of disease in form of anaemia, infertility etc. and some psychological corelation with the disease. Selected case is showing efficiency of homoeopathic remedy selected on the bases of holistic approach.4

Mild gentle and tearful, yet she is remarkably irritable, not in a sense of pugnacity, but easily irritated, extremely touchy, sensible to every social influence. Many of the complaints are associated with weakness of the stomach and indigestion, or with menstrual disorders. Women with various irregularities of the menstrual flow, the mental symptoms are often associated with the ovarian and uterine difficulties. One sided complaint is peculiar to Pulsatilla. Periodic sick headaches. The abdominal bowel symptoms are associated. The haemorrhoids it cures look like the flowers of the plant, so inflamed, red and bleeding, tender to touch. Menses too late, menstruation has been painful since puberty.7
