Vibha Harish, from Bengaluru who suffered from PCOS was exhausted by trying different kinds of medication to improve her situation. She eventually noticed that PCOS lead to multiple issues like problem in the gut, hair fall, change is sleep pattern (lack of sleep) etc. Vibha was determined to find a solution and after a detailed research along with the help of nutritionist and doctors she came out with plant based mixes all made of herbs, roots and berries to treat PCOS and other health complications that accompanied. We speak to this 24-year-old on her journey and how a plant based solution helps treat these problems.
Speaking about when she found out about having PCOS Vibha says, “I was 18 years old when I found out I had PCOS. I was worried at the time, but now it’s led me to helping others so I count it as a blessing! It took me a long time to understand that good health, beauty and strength really begins on the inside. I also learnt that nature has an answer to our health!”
Vibha’s mother is a homeopathic doctor and taught Vibha to have a holistic approach to her health. Speaking about what inspired her to discover plant based mixes she explains, “While I had PCOS I started studying more about these different herbs, berries, roots and fruits from across the world! I realised there’s so much that nature has to offer, but we don’t tap into it correctly. That’s why ‘CosMix’ was born! It was formulated by myself, nutritionist and doctors! I tested on my friends and family first and once they told me how positive and healthy they were feeling, I started giving it to others. Of course nobody saw results overnight, because this isn’t a quick fix. This is a natural process that works to make you healthy in the long run by giving you all the nutrients you need.”
Vibha believes that lack of immunity, hair fall, and other problems in millennials these days are very common! She opines, “It’s so easily observed when we look at how strong our grandparents are today! We fall sick easier than them! We owe it to the pollution, water quality and most importantly stress! The body has mechanisms to relax us, but we have to know how to trigger it. That’s what a lot of these ancient herbs are known to do!”
Speaking about plant based mixes being the best solution, Vibha says, “They don’t contain one particular chemically extracted nutrient like in the case of a vitamin pill. The beauty is that this is readily available in nature, so there are no adulterants or chemicals. In a natural plant based mix, a balance is maintained giving a 360 degree approach to health! And most importantly what people love about it is that they are easy on the digestive system.”
Her tips to women suffering from PCOS is, “Although this may seem obvious, having an active lifestyle is so important! Getting 30 minutes of movement everyday helps. It doesn’t even have to be intensive exercise. Just a walk does the job too. It’s important to know that there’s nothing to panic about. As long as you have a healthy lifestyle it’s possible to control the symptoms in most cases.”...
