Ayurveda treatment for male infertility:
Infertility is not just a disease that affects women—men suffer from it as well. In fact, new studies show that in approximately 40 per cent of infertile couples the male partner is either the sole cause or a contributing cause of infertility.
Both in Ayurveda as well as modern system of medicine the cause for male infertility is due to abnormal sperm. In Ayurveda, eight types of abnormalities of sperms are explained. These abnormalities are responsible for male infertility and are caused by unhealthy lifestyle and food habits.
Sperm quality is also important and is measured by the number, movement, and the shape of sperm. Sometimes medical conditions can affect a man’s ability to produce healthy sperm. Men with diabetes might have trouble in ejaculating. Men with cystic fibrosis might have a blockage that prevents the sperm from being ejaculated. Overweight men, men who smoke or men who use recreational drugs such as marijuana are more likely to have problems with their sperm number and quality.
Ayurveda has given utmost importance for the treatment of male infertility. There are more than 200 herbal drugs and formulations which can help in treating different conditions of male infertility. Before administering any of these drugs and formulations, detoxification therapies are done to remove the toxins from the body. After this, an appropriate medication is chosen to treat specific abnormalities. At least three months are required for these drugs to show a change in the quality of sperms.
