Abstract- The purpose of this case study was to determine the effect of an Integrated Approach that included patient-specific
nutritional therapy, Ayurveda and lifestyle modifications, on body weight and symptoms associated with polycystic ovary
syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a clinical condition common among women, characterized by menstrual irregularities, high
androgen levels and cysts in one or both ovaries. It is also associated with metabolic disruptions such as insulin resistance,
hypertension and dyslipidemia. Additionally, corpulence and obesity are concomitants that lead to exacerbation of symptoms
in 50% of PCOS cases. The subject of this case study was a 32-year-old pre-obese female with a clinical history of PCOS,
associated infertility, hypothyroidism, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and mild hair fall. She complained of low
energy levels and high levels of stress and anxiety. During the 12-week treatment, the patient achieved weight loss, improved
energy levels, relief from GERD, reduced anxiety and successful conception.
