AYURVEDIC POINT OF VIEW
Ayurveda manage the disorder and disturbances in the body through nature. Ayurveda considers that any of the health issue is the result of aggravation in any of the doshas which are regarded as the life forces or energies of the body. The treatment involves the balancing of that aggravated dosha by herbs. And herbs are the nature’s best gift to the mankind.
Ayurveda says, formation of tumor is due to the imbalance in Kapha and vata dosha. Vata dosha is responsible for the improper and faulty division of cells while Kapha dosha is responsible for the growth of tumor cells. Hence this prolactin disorder involves the balancing of these two doshas.
