To say the very least, the age-old body of medicine that is Ayurveda is very different from conventional and contemporary medicine. So, when a person gets to know a little about it, he or she is likely to hear the term ‘dosha’ quite often. Wouldn’t it be interesting to get to know more about what exactly this term means and how important it is?
As per Ayurveda, each person has a unique constitution in terms of the physical and mental constitution. There are generally known to be about two or three forces which come together and determine a person’s constitution. The various forces are in accordance with the elements such as fire, water and earth. So, it could be said that these forces are elemental forces and the constitution of a person depends on the interaction of the elements.
There are three types of dosha, which are Vata dosha, pitta dosha and Kapha dosha. When these doshas are in balance, a person would be in good health and content. When there happens to be an imbalance, it will lead to various conditions which can only be sorted out for the long term if an effort is made to regain balance.
The Vata dosha pertains to controlling the bodily functions. It reflects the elements of space and air. So, when a person has issues with the circulation of blood and breathing, it relates to the Vata dosha. The pitta dosha is responsible for the processes of the body with relation to its metabolism. What this means is that a person’s digestion and absorption, as well as the temperature of the body all, have to do with the pitta dosha. When the pitta dosha is not balanced, what is very likely to happen is that a person would develop ulcers. In addition to this, he or she may become angry without the need of much of a cause to be so. Not good things, are they?
The Kapha dosha is the dosha which is responsible for the growth of the body. So, it is the Kapha dosha that is to blame if the skin is not moisturised to a sufficient level! While it is true that every person is in possession of all three of the doshas, what does happen in most cases is that only two, or sometimes only one, dominate. As a matter of fact, our doshas make us who we are and can determine our preferences and habits. Isn’t that amazing?

I was supposed to start having my periods from 27th. I am usually 3-4 days late. I started bleeding on the 30th which is normal. But it was only a little bit and I did not seem to bleed any more for the rest of the night until the next morning when again it was only a little bit. Brown discharge. Is it normal? This has never happened before. Also, I have been perennially anaemic although I don't know of my latest haemoglobin count. I also indulge in intercourse with my partner, may be like once a month. But it is protected. But I am experiencing normal period system of occasional cramps and painful leg muscles. I was also diagnosed with depression a few months back and have bouts of crying, almost regularly. So I am kind of stressed all the time but for no reason.
Hello doctor can you suggest me the diet chart for pcod patient to regulate periods and conceive fast.
As the saying goes, it is all in the mind. This is very true especially when it comes to physical intimacy, where though the body plays a major role, the mind is what drives it completely. In surveys, it has been found that people enjoy sex the most when they are in a happy mood. It is very common to find people not even think about sex when they are upset and depressed.
In both male and female sexual dysfunctions, stress is the most common cause. Stress, for whatever reasons, affects sexual life and relationships in the long run. There are some strong connections between how stress affects sexual performance. Read on to know how the human body reacts to stress, which also explains the strong connection between sex and stress.
- Body image: When a person is stressed, there are effects like overeating, which lead to poor body image. These reduce the tendency to have sex, as the person’s self-image does not remain very positive.
- Hormone changes: Stress also affects the pituitary gland, which is the master gland controlling all other hormones. The thyroid, adrenals, and other male/female hormone producing organs are affected, thereby, affecting the entire cycle of menstruation, ovulation, and fertility.
- Stress hormone: The hormone cortisol (known as the stress hormone) is produced by the body when a person is in stress. When these are constantly produced as in the case with people who are constantly stressed, the production of sex hormones is reduced, thereby reducing libido.
- Blood circulation: Stress causes vasoconstriction or narrowing of blood vessels, which reduces blood flow to the target organs. Reduced blood flow to the sexual organs translates to lesser amount of sex.
- Lifestyle changes: Some of the ways a person tries to manage stress is through excessive smoking, eating, drinking, and drug abuse. All these spell doom for a sex life, and may even cause irreparable damage to relationships. Smoking has been shown to be a major cause of impotence. Drinking leads to dehydration, which affects lubrication and therefore leads to painful sex, which may not be continued. Binge eating not only tires a person, but also leads to obesity, which again is not inviting for sex.
- Unhealthy relationships: When the person around is not nice to be with, it becomes a deterrent. Imagine someone who is stressed constantly, throws tantrums, has temper outbursts, and is generally cribbing and unpleasant. There is no doubt that the partner is not going to be happy with someone like that.
So, while sex is mostly thought of as an act of pleasure, it may not be the case always. There is a vicious cycle between stress and sex, which definitely can be managed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
