Ayurveda is also very beneficial for improving your fertility. It is more like a scientific approach which addresses the causes so that the treatments can be facilitated from the root level.
What is Infertility, and how it impacts a person?
Infertility is characterized when a woman, even after a year of sexual union on a regular basis without any contraceptives, is not able to conceive. Infertility can be due to the physical or genetic deficiency in either one or both the partners.
This means that both, man and woman, will have to participate in the treatment process. The infertility of the couple can be due to the combination of their physical and mental conditions. There are also some cases, where each partner is independently fertile, but as a couple, they are not able to conceive.
To treat all these different conditions of infertility, there is a special branch in Ayurveda called as Vajeekarana. In this branch, the aim is to bring about conception in the presence of a good quantity of healthy sperm, a healthy uterus, and a healthy ovum.
What are the possible causes of infertility?
As per modern science, infertility in male or female can be due to following reasons:
- Inefficient functioning of body parts, responsible for reproduction
- Consumption of specific medicines, or due to ongoing medical treatments
- Less than required production of sperms
- Low quality of sperms
- Improper lifestyle
- Consumption of alcohol and drugs
- Lack of exercises, being underweight, or overweight.
- Old age of female
- Hormonal Imbalance
Ayurveda believes that fertility in a person is also affected due to improper food digestion, and poor lifestyle. Ideally, a human body needs an adequate amount of healthy digestive fire, good tissue quality, free flow of channels to nourish the reproductive system, and good performance during the intercourse. Better functioning of the reproductive system ensures better chances of conceiving.
How does Ayurveda treatment work towards fertility?
Ayurvedic treatments for infertility are focussed towards improving the body constitution of the one (man or woman) who is infertile. These treatments will basically help in curing the causative factors that lead to infertility, and also for improving the ability of a person to ovulate and fertilize.
It strengthens the uterine structures and makes it strong enough to hold the fetus. This helps in preventing abortions. In men, these treatments successfully increase the rate of production and motility of sperms.
