Ayurvedic Treatment for Infertility

Ayurvedic Treatment for Infertility

Ayurveda explains infertility as a condition in which a couple cannot contribute to conception due to a biological inability caused by different factors. In women, infertility can also be described as the inability to carry the pregnancy to its full term.

Due to high stress, poor dietary choices, sedentary lifestyle, and environmental factors, infertility in both men and women is not an uncommon problem. The number of couples coming forward to expensive fertility treatment methods has also been increasing substantially.  In this context, it makes sense to resort to the traditional treatment procedures that Ayurveda offers, to holistically approach the infertility challenge and facilitate the process of conception.  Tatkshana, Ayurveda hospital, Bangalore is the best Ayurveda Hospital Bangalore, to treat infertility.

In Ayurveda, the reproductive health of both men and women depends on the status of the Shukra dhatu – the reproductive tissues. Shukra dhatu is responsible for the production of the egg/ovum in women, and it can be adversely affected by numerous reasons including lack of a balanced diet, due to physical or mental disease, poor digestion, etc. This may obstruct the reproductive channels. Ayurveda mentions the three doshas, i.e. Sadhaka Pitta, Apana Vata, and Prana Vata that rule the female reproductive system. Hence, the Ayurvedic treatment for infertility in women aims at balancing these three doshas and thus healing the body. Hormonal imbalance contributes much to women owing to the disparity in doshas for which Ayurveda is the solution.   Panchakarma treatment, yogasanas, and Ayurvedic medicines have been proved beneficial in case of male infertility.
