7 Most Effective Ayurvedic Treatments For Infertility!

Ayurveda is a time tested warehouse of medical wisdom and does offer treatment options for this problem too!

Causes Of Infertility According To Ayurveda:

Infertility is often spoken about in whispers. There is still a lot of stigma attached to this increasingly common medical issue. Yes, infertility is medical problem and needs medical intervention.

According to Ayurveda, infertility occurs when a person’s reproductive tissue or Shukra dhatu, remains bereft of nutrition. This can be caused due to poor digestion and because of certain toxins in the body. Some of the other causes of infertility according to Ayurveda are:

  1. Anxiety
  2. Depression
  3. Insomnia
  4. Spicy and Salty food

Ayurvedic Treatment For Infertility:
Ayurveda takes a holistic view about health and treats the body as a whole instead of an individual ailment. Once you visit a good Ayurvedic doctor, he’ll ask you many questions before diagnosing you. Once the doctor is certain of what ails your body, he’ll be ready to treat you!

The main focus of Ayurvedic treatment for infertility is to ensure the proper transformation of food into nutrients that can move to the ‘shukra dhatu’. Some of the used treatment for infertility in Ayurveda are:

1. Swedanam: Ayurvedic doctors use this method to induce sweating in patients suffering from infertility with the help of heavy blankets or exercises. This is done to flush toxins out of the body.

2. Vamanam: This somewhat uncomfortable but ultimately detoxing Ayurvedic therapy induces vomiting to rid the body of undigested food.

3. Banyan Tree Bark: Many Ayurvedic doctors prescribe the use of dried banyan tree bark powder, mixed with sugar, to treat infertility issues.

4. Ashwagandha Churna And Kapikacchu: Both these medicines are known to increase sperm count and also improve its quality.

5. Phala Gritam: This is an Ayurvedic medicine to treat female infertility. Consumed in the form of liquefied butter mixed with milk, this medicine is touted to treat functional problems but does not treat structural deficiencies.

6. Guduchi, Gokshura, And Triphala Churna: These medicines are used to clear the blockages in the body, which prevents the production of the shukra dhatu. 

7. ShatavariThis is only woman medicine, used female infertility treatment in Ayurveda.

Diet To Tackle Infertility:
According to Ayurveda, a person dealing with infertility needs to follow a strict diet. Apart from avoiding spicy and excessively salty food, Ayurveda recommends including the following foods in the patients diet:

  1. Almonds
  2. Fresh Vegetables
  3. Whole Grains
  4. Dairy products such as milk
  5. Fresh Fruits
  6. Dried Fruits

All these foods help provide nutrition to the shukra dhatu, which in turn can help a person conceive.

Points To Remember:
It is tough to deal with infertility issues and at time, you may feel helpless, but Ayurveda does offer of ray of hope. Here are some tips to get you going:

Accept:
No matter the form of treatment you seek, the first thing you need to do is accept that you have a problem. Living in denial will not help you get pregnant.

Seek Help:
If you have been trying to conceive for more than a year now, seek medical help.

Don’t Blame Yourself:
Infertility is common, effecting one in 10 couples.

Speak Out:
Don’t keep it to yourself. Infertility is not a curse. Talk to your friends so they can offer emotional help.

Diabetes - Types And Ayurvedic Treatment!

Diabetes is often called the silent killer. This is because you would not even know when it sneaks up on you. It may not have any symptoms initially but once you have it, you would need lifelong administration of drugs. Diabetes or diabetes mellitus, is a metabolic disease in which sugar does not get metabolized properly in the body. This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body.

Types of Diabetes

There are three types of diabetes. These are:

  1. Type 1 Diabetes: this is a condition in which in which the body does not produce insulin at all. Patients suffering from this condition may need to take insulin supplements for the rest of their life, in order to properly metabolize sugar in the body. This is a very rare, genetic condition.

  2. Type 2 Diabetes: this is a condition in which the insulin product is impaired and there is not enough insulin in the body for metabolizing sugars properly. This leads to high blood sugar and eventually, the symptoms of diabetes.

  3. Gestational Diabetes: This is an affliction of pregnant women. Some women’s bodies may not be able to produce enough insulin at the time of pregnancy and therefore they have excess sugar in their blood stream. Gestational diabetes may be harmful for both the mother and the baby.

Diabetes Treatment in Ayurveda

For Ayurvedic treatment of diabetes, the first step is usually dietary planning and lifestyle change. Adopting a more active lifestyle, and a healthy, balanced diet low on sugars and starches, is a must. You must begin by avoiding sugars in all forms. This means you will have to get rid of rice, potatoes, white bread, sugar coated cereals, bananas, colocasia and much more. Add a lot of green leafy vegetables to your diet to improve your nutritional status and metabolism. In addition to these, also add some herbs to your diet. Ayurvedic herbs that act as natural medicine for diabetes include turmeric, bitter gourd, gurmar leaves, bael, fenugreek and many more.

Apart from diabetes Ayurvedic treatment, you could also practice yoga, which can help you improve your health. Several yogic asanas help massage your internal organs so that they are healthier and can function much better. Some of the asanas are especially beneficial for the pancreas, which produce insulin. You may have to make some changes to your lifestyle as well. For starters, you will have to maintain a more active lifestyle. You will also have to avoid sleeping in the daytime. Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol and take extra care of your feet.

Here are a few home remedies that may help cure diabetes naturally:

Juice of Bitter Gourd:

You may consume 30ml of fresh juice of Karela/ bitter melon every day early in the morning. You can also mix it with other things to make simple recipes and consume it.

How to prepare:

  1. Separate the seeds and mix the fruit in the mixer. Add a little bit of water and mix it in the blender. Use a sieve to obtain the juice.

  2. Small and thin pieces of the bitter gourd are cut. Fry them with some mustard oil and the required quantity of salt. Add green chillies and onions to the pan and heat the mixture for 10-15 minutes.

Aloe Vera and Ground bay leaf:

The mixture of aloe vera gel (1 tbsp), ground bay leaf (1/2 tsp), and turmeric (1/2 tsp) is recommended to be taken twice a day before lunch and dinner for effective hyperglycaemic control.

Methi Seeds:

Methi seeds, also known as Fenugreek seeds, when taken by itself or in combination with other Ayurvedic herbs, can act as an effective remedy to lower the symptoms of diabetes.

How to prepare:

  1. Grind a few Methi seeds and turmeric together and take it with a glass of milk at least twice a day.

  2. Soak fenugreek seeds in warm water overnight followed by chewing it in the morning.

  3. Soak 4tbsp of fenugreek seeds in about 300ml of water overnight and chew it the following morning.

  4. Prepare chapattis with fenugreek seed powder

Jamun Seeds:

The powdered seeds of Eugenia jambolana (about 1 tsp) should be taken twice a day with lukewarm water. Jamun has the beneficial property of not allowing the starch in food to get converted into sugar.

Amla:

Amla juice (Embelica officinalis) (20 ml) two times a day is beneficial for a diabetic patient. You may also use powdered ‘Amla’ powder and consume it twice a day.

Banyan Tree Bark:

A decoction of the bark of banyan tree is taken (50 ml) twice a day.

Preparation method: 20 gm of the banyan tree bark is boiled in 4 glasses of water. Evaporate the water until only about one glass of the decoction is remaining and drink it when it is warm.

Cinnamon Powder:

Cinnamon powder is probably considered as one of the most important home remedies.

How to prepare: Add 3-4 Tbsp of cinnamon powder and add to one litre of water and boil the same for about 20 minutes. Strain this mixture and cool the same. It is recommended to consume it every day.
