1. Male Infertility
According to a data, 5-10 percent of couples are infertile, and trying hard to get pregnant with frequent, unprotected intercourse for a long time with no success.
The fact is in about half the cases, male infertility is a factor.
Nowadays causes of male infertility include a lot of factors like abnormal sperm production or impaired delivery of sperm, general health and lifestyle issues such like, excessive smoking, alcohol intake, degrading environment, high air and water pollution levels, excessive change in food habits, and long time sitting job/ work, stress etc. and exposure to certain environmental factors like exposure to radiation are some key factors that affect male fertility negatively.
Ayurveda realized the problem of male infertility thousands of years ago and developed treatments and therapies to cure it. We at Amulya Health recommend an appropriate use of these remedies, a proper lifestyle and nutritious diet for improving overall health and treating male infertility.
Ayurveda explains following causes for male infertility.
1) Bijaupa tapa (Congenital abnormalities)
Some defects in the gamete which leads to development and structural anomalies of reproductive system. Chromosomal disorders and various developmental disorders.
2) Sukradosha (Diseases of sperm):
To know the causes for seminal morbidity, we need to understand the following factors like;
· Food factors:
Habitual and excessive use of dry, bitter, astringent, salty, acidic and hot food causes seminal morbidity. Foods which are at variance with place, time, power of digestion, quantity, habit, doshas and mode of preparation plays a crucial role and contribute generously.
“What we eat, how we eat, when we eat and where we eat “is how we define role of food in curing infertility.
· Behavioral factors:
Excessive sexual indulgence, untimely sexual union, sexual abuse, absolute sexual abstinence, bodily exertion in excess, suppression of natural urges and sexual union with an unresponsive woman, also some behavioral habits which we do unconsciously like sleeping very late at night, such lifestyle leads to disparity of Rakta and Pitta Dosha, ultimately causing Shukrakshaya i.e. deficit in Shukra Dhatu qualitatively and quantitatively.
Our behavioral habits contribute consciously and unconsciously. So be at calm and at ease with yourself.
· Psychological factors
Grief, anxiety, fear, anger, lack of mutual love and confidence are just few of the major psychological factors which contributes to infertility.
