Many patients report that it is not working for them. They complain saying that they are not able to loose weight or the symptoms like acne or massive hair loss triggered by PCOS is still there. The reason for that according to Ayurveda is believed to be the congestion in our body channels that is triggered by the toxins in our body that is trigged by the errors in our metabolism.
