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.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • 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.

  • Dr. Gurnam and Pooja both are very knowledgeable and friendly. Ayurvedic treatments provided in the clinic were very effective, specially panchkarma. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking for ayurvedic and natural treatments.

    Shitanshu Thakur

  • 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.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
