There are various couples who find them unable to expand their family and have to face social and mental trauma as a result. Medical science terms the couple to be ‘infertile’. In medical terms, Infertility is a state when a woman fails to conceive the pregnancy after regular sexual intercourse without contraceptives or she fails to retain the fetus till childbirth.
What Ayurveda says about infertility?
According to Ayurveda, the conception of a child is not deemed as just a result of physical intimacy but is believed to be a physical, emotional and spiritual phenomenon. Both men and women should be physically and mentally healthy in order to produce healthy seeds i.e.male sperm and female ovum for conception. Ayurveda further says that reproductive health in both men and women depends upon the health of “shukradhatu”. In men, “shukradhatu” is responsible for producing the semen and in women it produces the ovum.
How can Ayurveda cure infertility?
The treatment for infertility in Ayurveda dates back to several thousand years. Ayurvedic scholars counter the problem of infertility using a simple approach - by improving a couples’ overall health so that their chances of conceiving improve without any medicinal interference. As mentioned earlier, the focus is to enhance the quantity and quality of “shukradhatu” in order to increase the reproductive capacity in both men and women. For this purpose, Ayurveda seeks the assistance of a combination of herbs that are proven to be useful in regulating the menstrual cycle and vitalizing sperm. All those herbs are available with the fertility naturopaths in Melbourne.
