Treating Infertility With Ayurveda

Treating Infertility With Ayurveda

Infertility has emerged as a common problem as a result of the modern day lifestyle. Extremely hectic schedules, stress, burnout, depression and unhealthy diets can contribute to fertility issues. As per a study published by Pharmion, around 30 million Indian couples were estimated to suffering from lifetime infertility, in 2015. Also, the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) fell to 2.3% in 2013 against 3.9% in 1990.
Couples often seek help with methods such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization (IVF), but the problem can be solved in natural ways too. Sometimes, the root cause of infertility is simply irregular functioning or blockages in the body systems. The basic principle of Ayurveda is to get the body functioning to its optimum capacity and this is often all that is needed to treat diseases.

Here are a few ways in which Ayurvedic medicine can help treat infertility:

  1. Phal Ghrit: The medicine is made by combining a number of herbs and it is taken with warm milk. It has been developed especially to treat infertility by controlling the level of hormones secreted in the body. It cannot remedy structural problems, but it can effectively treat functional disorders in the reproductive system.
  2. Shatavari (Asparagus): This plant is used to treat female infertility by regulating the cycles of menstruation and ovulation.
  3. Triphala Churna: A combination of three different fruits - baheda, amla and haritaki, this medicine helps to cleanse the body of toxins, strengthens the immune system and clears blockages in the fallopian tubes.
  4. Ashwagandha Churna (Indian ginseng): The medicine is used to treat male infertility by naturally increasing the production of sperm in the system.

There are also a few Ayurvedic therapies which can help to cure infertility:

  1. Vamanam: In this treatment procedure, medicated oil is swallowed to induce vomiting, which expels all the contaminating elements in the body. This process can be done regularly depending upon the overall health of the patient and also helps to combat digestive and psychological conditions.
  2. Swedanam: This therapy is usually done before other Ayurvedic therapies to prepare the body systems. For patients of infertility, the patient is made to sweat excessively. This also flushes most nitrous compounds out of the body.
  3. Dhatu Nirman Karma: The cells of the body are made to metabolize, absorb and assimilate nutrients leading to the formation of healthy cells and destruction of the unhealthy ones. This is turn rejuvenates the organs. Usually, this is helpful for female infertility.

Please inform me tsh, t3 and t4 level. Your blood pressure measurement also should be checked regularly at different time. Your dose may be higher that causes weight loss. Please inform if there is any other disease and even stress, anxiety etc also. Dose titration can be done after hormone level and other clinical features.

Partial acl tear usually do not need surgery. Moreover you symptoms are not due to ligament insufficiency. Partial articular cartilage defects are left as such. Grade 2 signal in meniscus are usually not symptomatic. It may not be wise to suggest anything without clinical examination and mri films, but as per your symptoms and mri report, I think you should focus on quadriceps and hamstring strengthening exercises. Any surgery is less likely to improve your symptoms.

Hi doctor my question is that my uric acid level in blood has increased and it is 8.3 Due to this I am feeling pain in my left leg feet near the third finger from toe side What should I do?

MBBS
Urologist, Kolkata
You should immediately start taking medications for this level of uric acid. The sooner you control this condition the better. Otherwise there may be serious complications in your later life. Along with medications please reduce your dietary animal protein (chicken, mutton- especially any red meat, egg) to a minimum. Please consult your doctor for medications or consult me privately, because we are not allowed to prescribe drugs on public post. Its against the rules and regulations of this website. Thank you.

Dear, Your ppg is very less and your creatinine and urea are high. Your creatinine clearance is only 48.49, means very less. So I will like to advice you treat very aggressively, as your kidney is affected more. It should be more then 60. So please consult to good diabetologist and nephrologist for dm and kidney. As your kidneys are affected, you have to reduce the dose. Please inform me your all medicines you are taking. You may be having type 1 dm.

Mr. lybrate-user, As you have said, HbA1c% is very good, showing a good blood glucose control. As regards high level of SGPT, it indicates some damage to liver cells and also to muscle cells. This may happen in persistently high and vigorous muscular activity. Or can happen due to excess alcohol drinking. To reduce SGPT take regularly Vitamin D supplement, take nutritious vegetarian food, avoid high fatty diet and refrain from alcohol totally.

Hello, looking at your wife's height and weight, it clear that she has a bmi of 30.35 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. For good blood glucose control weight reduction is essential. Her ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, she is over weight by 18 kgs. This definitely hampers blood glucose control. Secondly, we may have do a proper titration of insulin dosage in relation to blood glucose levels. Plus there may be a need for introducing an additional drug or a long acting insulin. Plus she has to seriously look at her diet and exercise so that weight reduction is done. All these things together will definitely help in better control of blood glucose levels. Initially we should target her fasting glucose level, bring it down to 100 - 110 mg/ 100 ml. Then target pp level. Thanks.

high blood pressure combined with diabetes going on for a number of years are invariably dangerous to the kidney. These conditions lead to a chronic kidney damage then to chronic kidney failure. The treatment options are limited. Most important thing is to have strict sugar and bp control. Because if these diseases are ot fully controlled then damage is progressive, can cause complete failure. So make sure that his sugar levels and bp are as normal as possible. Reduce excess salt and protein intake. Drugs like nsaids (pain killers) should be avoided. If need be dialysis should be used to help kidney functioning.

Do your hba1c. Hba1c will show you exact diabetes control. Fasting and post meals sugar will show particular day glucose reading. Fbs and ppbs is trailer of diabetes, hba1c is entire movie. Do your hba1c from srl or metropolis.
