Struggling to Conceive? Demystifying Ayurveda's Fertility-Boosting Secrets


Procreation is the biological process by which an individual organism produces its offspring and continues its species. It is one such process in the lifecycle of an organism, which brings with it the bliss of parenthood. However, there are couples who may be devoid of this joy.


Infertility is the state of being unable to produce offspring. Men and women suffering from impotence sometimes pass through unbearable emotional stress. 


Causes of Infertility


Infertility may be because of a single factor or combination of factors, either in women or in men, or in both, that prevent a woman from becoming pregnant.


Male Infertility Causes as per Ayurveda:

According to Ayurveda, infertility in men can be attributed to the following factors:


Congenital Abnormalities (Bija Upa Tapa)

This refers to structural abnormalities in the reproductive system.


Diseases of sperm (Sukra Dosha)

Diseases of sperm can be attributed to one or more of the following reasons:


Food Factors

Consumption of dry, bitter, astringent, salty, acidic and hot food may contribute to infertility in men. Alcohol and drugs may also lead to male infertility.


Behavioural Factors

Overindulgence in sexual activity, untimely sexual intercourse, sexual abstinence, sleeping late at night, hectic lifestyle and other behavioural factors may sometimes lead to male infertility.


Psychological Factors

Anger, fear, sorrow, anxiety and absence of mutual love can be psychological factors leading to infertility in men.


Loss of Libido (Klaibya)

Excessive worries, old age, debilitating diseases, and exhaustion of sperm may lead to loss of qualitative and quantitative loss of libido.


Female Infertility Causes 


The following factors contribute to infertility in women:


  • Anovulation
  • Sexual dysfunctions like lack of libido, infrequent sex, exhaustion
  • Alcohol and drugs
  • Emotional stress
  • Age
  • Malnutrition
  • Tobacco Smoking
  • Lifestyle Generated disorders
  • Exposure to environmental pollutants, etc.


Naturopath Fertility Enhancement for Male and Female with Ayurveda


Ayurveda manuscripts suggest multiple remedies that have been used traditionally to support male and female fertility. A few of the remedies are listed here under.


How to Increase Fertility Naturally


No single herb increases fertility, but combinations of specific herbs, along with improving the diet and lifestyle factors, including reducing stress levels, may be beneficial in regulating menstrual cycles and invigorating sperm. 


Naturopath Remedies for Infertility In Male 


The following herbs have been used traditionally in Ayurveda with beneficial effects for men:



Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)


Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng and winter cherry, is used in Ayurveda medicines to treat a variety of diseases. It has been helpful in the management of osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, general debility, and men's and women's infertility. In men, it may help to increase the sperm count and may work as an aphrodisiac agent.


Kapikacchu beeja (Mucuna pruriens)


Kapikacchu seeds have been used traditionally in Indian natural medicine to increase sperm count. It is also suggested to work as an aphrodisiac agent and nervine tonic. It is used in Ayurveda for conditions like general body weakness, Parkinson's disease, loss of libido, etc.


Amlaki (Phyllanthus emblica)


Amlaki contains antioxidants, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, polyphenols, flavones and carotenoids. It is considered a rejuvenating herb and is the main ingredient in the famous Ayurveda health supplement Chyvanprasham. It may help to restore the natural functions of the reproductive system and improve sperm count and fertility in men.



Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus)


In men, shatavari may help to improve sperm count. It may also be helpful in the treatment of general sexual debility and impotence because of suggested aphrodisiac effects, and it may increase the libido.


Jeevanthi (Myristica Fragans)


Jeevanthi contains antioxidants, trimyristin, myristicin, and other volatile oils, which may help prevent various diseases by enhancing immunity. All active principles present in Jeevanti suggest possessing antidepressant, digestive, aphrodisiac, and carminative functions. Jeevanti may help men by providing the proper nourishment required for the libido and optimum sperm production.


Natural Remedies for Fertility In Female


The following herbs are mentioned in Ayurvedic texts as beneficial for women's fertility:


Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus)


Shatavari may help to nourish the reproductive system in women and may support the cleansing of the blood. It may enhance female fertility and prepare the female body for conception. It may also be beneficial for women suffering from Anovulation because it is suggested to nourish the ovaries to produce ovum. It may help reduce premenstrual cramps, irritability and bloating in women. It is also considered to contain folic acid, so it is useful in anemia as well.


Aloe vera


Aloe vera may help in Anovulation because it may help stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs. Furthermore, it may also be beneficial in reducing pain during the menstrual period and cleansing the blood flow, so it may also support removing toxins through the menstrual blood.


Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)


In some cases, it is difficult to find the cause of infertility, and everything looks good and appropriate. In these cases, Ayurveda believes the weakness of the uterus in implanting the fertilised egg might be a possible reason for failed conception, so Ayurveda recommends the use of Ashwagandha. It may help the uterus implant the fertilised egg and may support the maintenance of the pregnancy. It may also be beneficial in women suffering from frequent miscarriages.


There are many different conditions that may play a role in infertility, so patients may require individualised herbal formulas to correct his/her problems. You may Consult Ayurveda at Pure Ayurved Herbal Clinic in Australia to get the customised combination of herbs in the veggie capsule, along with diet and lifestyle suggestions.


 Ayurveda Management of Fertility


Abhyanga, Shirodhara, Marma therapy, Chakra balancing, Nasya, Basti, Pinda Svedana, etc., are a few body therapies that may be productive in the Ayurveda Treatment of infertility. Panchkarma may also be suggested for fertility enhancement in couples after full Ayurveda consultation.

Increase Fertility with Yoga 


Yoga is a great way to do physical as well as mental exercises. Some breathing exercises help to reduce stress, depression, and emotional trauma and increase mental and physical tolerability. Some yoga poses that may promote natural reproductive health are Legs-up-the-wall pose (viparita karani), Reclining bound angle (supta baddha konasana) and easy pose (sukhasana).


Trying to Conceive 


  • Proper diet and lifestyle regimens can immensely contribute to combating infertility.
  • Quit smoking, as it is a significant factor that plays a role in reproductive health.
  • Improves dietary habits and eats a balanced diet.
  • Avoid the use of drugs where possible, which may have an influence on sperm count and sexual health.
  • Obesity is sometimes linked with infertility, so reduce your body weight through a regular exercise routine, yoga and walking.
  • Get sufficient rest and sleep. Excessive physical work may cause exhaustion and lead to infertility in rare cases.
  • You may take some relaxation sessions, such as Shirodhara, to reduce stress because stress can also be a contributing factor to reducing fertility in both men and women.
  • Wear appropriate loose clothes, as some researches show that wearing very tight underwear can be linked with male infertility.
  • Avoid use of any fragrant sexual lubricants because they might affect sperm motility.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

    Nikhila Madabhushi

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

    Dora Tsividis

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

    Ashe Davenport

    dipti trivedi

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

    Christine Medley

  • Hello all, I have been consulting Dr. Saini for past 2years or so and have found his treatment very helpful and effective. He has a deep knowledge of Aryuveda and listens to your health issues, doubts and concerns patiently and advices Aryuved herbs and gives advice accordingly. He is kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Saini to anyone who is looking for treatment for their health issues or improving their overall health.

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!
