Vaginal dryness or vaginal atrophy is an ailment that can affect women at any age. As women age the vaginal lining starts thinning resulting in symptoms of dryness.
This disease is more common among the women in their menopausal phase, 80% of the women entering the menopause may suffer from this disease and around 50% of them continue to have a dry vagina even after the menopause.
Ayurveda treats an individual constitutionally and formulate the treatment plan.
Nature has provided us with many ayurveda herbs that may help treat vaginal atrophy. Some the herbs that have been widely used traditionally for the ayurvedic treatment of this disease are:
Shatavari (Asparagus Racemosus) - It is considered to have rejuvenating and revitalising effects on the female reproductive system. It balances the female hormones due to its natural phytoestrogen content. It may be a good remedy for feminine dryness. Shatavri supplements are generally taken with milk.
Daruhaldi (Berberis aristata) - It contains vitamin C, pectins, tannins, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and iron. It has all the qualities of turmeric and thus has healing and blood purifying properties.
Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa) - This herb has anti-inflammatory properties. It is known for its swelling reducing properties.
These ayurvedic herbs may be useful natural remedies for dry vagina. They have amazing medicinal and health giving properties. They have been known to mankind for thousands for years and their healing properties are well established. They work naturally with the body’s system and restore health.
The review paper states that ‘Vitiated Vyana Vata and Rasa Dushti’ also causes vaginal dryness involving Artavavaha Strotas (channel carrying menstrum). Shatavari and Aloe vera are ayurvedic uterine tonics that are used to improve vaginal lubrication and discharge.
Natural Remedies For Post-Menopausal Dryness
Some of the remedies that may help in increasing the female wetness are:
Sesame oil- Massage the walls of your vagina with a cotton ball dipped in sesame oil for around two weeks to restore the lubrication.
Aloe Vera gel- This herb is known for its moisturising properties, it may help keep the female reproductive system in good health.
Fenugreek seeds- Boil a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds with water for 15 minutes, allow it to cool and drink it once a day.
Last but not the least, drink 8 glasses of water every day. This will keep you hydrated and flush out the harmful toxins from the body.
According to Ayurveda, every human body so completely different that it’s just not possible to manufacture ‘one size fits all’ drug. And as we are firm believers of Ayurveda so we take a detailed case study to assess the constitution of every patient before initiating the treatment.
