Shukra Dhatu : The Ayurvedic View of Sexual Health and Fertility

Shukra Dhatu : The Ayurvedic View of Sexual Health and Fertility

According to ayurveda the body is said to be composed of the 7 dhatus i.e rasa(fliud), rakta(blood), mamsa (muscles), meda(fat), asthi(bones), majja(marrow) and sukra (semen).

*comparison are made just to explain theoretically, else they are far different things.

Sukra dhatu is present in both males and females , hence don't confuse it with sperms or seminal fluid .

Sukra dhatu is the last dhatu to be made after all 7 dhatus in body,

Hence, we can say sukra dhatu is essence of all the dhatus , it is well spreaded all through the body.

The sukra dhatu according to modern concepts can be understood as the sexual power, the ejaculation , the erectile strength , the quality of sperms , the semen or we can say overall reproductive strength of the person

A common lifestyle disorder of sukra dhatu is sukra Kshaya or loss of sukra dhatu , this includes common symptoms such as loss of erection, premature ejaculation, weakening of muscles, wrinkling of skin , whitening of hair , fatigue , loss of concentration power etc .

A proper care of diet and lifestyle is necessary to maintain healthy sukra dhatu.

Now to improve the dhatu:

  1. Take milk on daily basis ..milk and milk products are best for sukra dhatu ...
  2. Milk added with grinded almonds and pista have a good result...
  3. Ashwagandha powder has best results on sukra dhatu in males and for females shatavri powder has a great effect the powder can be taken with hot milk ...
  4. Fruits like dates , mangoes , fig, almonds , custard Apple ,strawberry , Apple , nuts , almonds , cashew etc have a positive result in improving sexual power .
  5. Vegies like spinach , cucumber , sweet potato , pumpkin seeds also boost sexual power..
  6. Fish especially tuna fish , lobster , egg yolk also increase the sukra dhatu...

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized ayurveda and ask a free question.

General Physician,
Working hard when tired is not good for your health. Doing mental or physical work while exhausted may harm your health, according to a study from University of Alabama at Birmingham and published in International Journal of Psychophysiology.

In the study, fatigued people had bigger spikes in blood pressure compared to well-rested people while doing a memorization test.

When fatigued people regard a task as worthwhile and achievable, they increase their effort to compensate for their diminished capability. As a result, the blood pressure of a tired person increases and remains elevated until the task is completed or the person gives up.

In this study, Wright and colleagues told 80 volunteers they could win a modest prize by memorizing 2 to 6 nonsense trigrams (meaningless, three?letter sequences) within two minutes. Compared to volunteers with low levels of fatigue, those with moderate fatigue had stronger blood pressure while doing the two?trigram memorization task.

Benefits of Beetroot juice on heart and exercise
Drinking beetroot juice is helpful in increasing the stamina during workout or exercise session as it is capable of enhancing oxygen delivery and reducing work of the heart, allowing exercise to be performed at a given workload for a longer period of time before the onset of fatigue.

EDD by USG at this gestational age is not that reliable. It should be calculated by date of last menstrual period. Probably your doctor has done that. As she had surgery at early pregnancy, chances of prelabour rupture of membrane can be there. You should visit to doctor at given date. If she allows then can wait spontaneous onset of labour.

6 month is enough time. Now, you should try , at least regularly between 12th and 16th days of the menstrual cycle. Hope, you have done some basic tests like tubal patency, semen analysis, thyroid profile etc. All the best.

Hi Swati weight gain you had could be due to hormonal imbalance. Please first check for hormonal profile and afterwords start diet low in carbohydrates high in protein, rich in fruits and vegetables. Avoid oily, junk food, bakery products.

Unexpected Bleeding - Know the Reasons Behind it!

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Pune
Unexpected Bleeding - Know the Reasons Behind it!

Unexpected or abnormal vaginal bleeding usually refers to the kind of bleeding that occurs any time outside of the normal time of menstruation. Also termed as spotting, inter-menstrual bleeding or metrorrhagia, bleeding between periods always calls for extra measures to be taken against it, and is a matter of serious concern. The primary causes for unexpected vaginal bleeding generally are:

  1. An imbalance of progesterone and estrogen levels triggered by a variety of causes like thyroid gland problems, dysfunctional ovaries and irregular doses of birth control pills, which may eventually lead to spotting. However, one must take note of the fact that hormonal contraceptives, in many cases, may cause abnormal bleeding for the first few months, after which it always subsides.
  2. Noncancerous growth such as uterine fibroids are also potential causes of spotting or abnormal bleeding.
  3. Miscarriages, ectopic pregnancy, and other kinds of complications involved during childbirth can cause abnormal vaginal bleeding.
  4. Infection of reproductive organs caused due to intercourse, vaginal douching, pelvic inflammatory disease, or STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) may lead to bleeding and inflammation.
  5. Cancer of the vagina, uterus, cervix, or ovaries, albeit extremely rare in nature, may cause abnormal bleeding of the vagina.

While in most cases, this type of bleeding is naturally corrected, some women might need to undergo treatments when the case is severe. Overlooking an otherwise minor issue might thrust you in the face of life-threatening circumstances, if it develops into a case of cancer, infection, or any other type of disorder.

‘Prevention’ of vaginal bleeding, as such, is indeed a narrow possibility and the measures will almost always vary since the factors that cause intermenstrual bleeding aren’t the same in all cases. However, what your doctor will always advise you in this regard will be to ensure that your diet is balanced, your weight under control and your lifestyle is essentially healthy. If you happen to be on birth control medications, be so while adhering to medical instructions. Resorting to taking aspirin doses often might also influence the incidence of such abnormal conditions. If your pain still persists after you experience unexpected bleeding, you must consult a doctor without any further delay.
