Love herbs and Orchis moustique.:
THE World Health Organization defines sexuality as an integral part of everyone's personality. It is a basic need and an aspect of being human that cannot be separated from other aspects of human life.
Sexuality is so interwoven into our lives that it forms an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Sexual health is very much bound to both physical and mental health.
One's sexual health is an important indicator of the quality of life and overall health. Today, we face many sexual health problems that pose a threat to our quality of life. Recent research indicates that sexual problems are highly prevalent in both sexes as it is estimated that 10% to 52% of men and 25% to 63% of women encounter them.
The common sexual problems or dysfunctions encountered in both men and women are loss of libido or lack of interest in sex and infertility, while men alone face problems like premature ejaculation, low sperm counts, and erectile dysfunction.
Various underlying factors like age, obesity, stress, depression, hypogonadism (low levels of sex hormones), lack of sexual knowledge, certain medical conditions like hypertension, atherosclerosis, cigarette smoking and certain medications cause sexual dysfunction.
While correcting underlying causes using pharmacological and psychological therapy forms the basis of addressing it, lifestyle changes and herbs can also help in such conditions.
Sexual health has a unique position in Ayurveda. While describing daily routine, Ayurveda explains the schedule for the night as well, and one of the most important activities at this time is the sexual act.
The literature explains at length about the need for satisfying this innate desire of man. To fulfil this desire in the most effective way, Vajeekarana or Vrushyachikitsa (to make a strong potent man), one of the eight specialty disciplines, was developed in Ayurveda 3,600 years ago.
The term Vajee means horse-like virility and Vajeekarana means strengthening or arousing sexual desire or producing virility. It is also known as Vrushya (Vrusha means Bull), meaning penile tumescence (that which increases the organ size), and mood elevation.
Benefits of this treatment include fulfilling satisfaction, nourishment, enhanced fertility, momentary joy and strong body.
There are several herbs used in China to promote virility. Almonds are commonly recommended to restore strength and replenish vitality.
The cause of low libido is the diminution of vital reproductive elements in the body called Shukra dhatu. Emotional factors and high stress are also some of the primary causes of a reduced sex drive.
In the case of impotence, it is recommended to take saffron (Crocus sativus) and Orchis moustique, which are aphrodisiacs and also help to increase sperm count.
Kokilaksha (Asteracantha longifolia) is used in disorders of genitourinary system and is useful in impotence, spermatorrhoea and seminal debilities.
Several other herbs are recommended in TCM and they are Tribulus terrestris,Suo Yang,Rou Cong Rong,Tu Si Zi and others.
Tribulus terrestris, also known as the small caltrops, is a small herb (and often seen as a common weed) found in many parts of the world. It also bears small yellow or pale yellow flowers. The fruit or root of Gokshura is well known for its properties that are useful in the treatment of kidney stones and painful urination. It is also recommended in impotence and in kidney dysfunction. Its effects in erectile dysfunction are pronounced.
Recent studies have demonstrated a direct relationship between serum levels of the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and the incidence of erectile dysfunction.
Protodioscin, a phytochemical agent derived from Gokshura, has been clinically proven to improve sexual desire and enhance erection via the conversion of protodioscin to DHEA. Several studies support the pro-erectile effects of Gokshura. Protodioscin from Gokshura also improves blood flow to the erectile tissues.
Kapikachchu (Mucuna pruriens) is a twining plant that grows all over India. The alkaloids from this plant have been found to increase sperm production in treated rats. It also exhibited testosterone-induced androgenic activity in another set of individuals. Traditionally Kapikachchu is used in increasing sperm count in men and ovulation in women and for relief from Parkinson's disease.
Recent studies attribute oxidative stress as one of the main reasons for arteriogenic erectile dysfunction and conclude that antioxidants may be helpful in preventing dysfunction. Kapikachhu is a potent antioxidant, which reduces the oxidative damage to sperm by preventing the disruption in its membrane integrity.
Ayurvedic formulations available for such conditions include a combination of the above herbs or single herb preparations.
In conclusion, sexual health is the integration of the somatic, emotional, intellectual, and social aspects of living. Hence, for optimum sexual health, the above factors are very essential. These herbs and herbal formulations are positively enriching and help to enhance personality, communication, and love.
