Infertility basically refers to the inability to get pregnant even after a year of having regular unprotected intercourse. There may be a number of reasons which cause infertility. A number of these causes can be treated with the help of Ayurveda.
Using Ayurveda techniques to improve your fertility helps you to reduce any chance of further complications arising due to the side effects of synthetic medication. Ayurveda helps you to increase your fertility by suggesting various lifestyle changes. Ayurveda also suggests several foods and herbal supplements which can optimize the functioning of the body systems and boost your fertility as well.
1. A Balanced Diet:
According to Ayurveda health experts, a well-balanced diet which consists of organic fruits and vegetables, a large amount of dairy products, soaked almonds or walnuts, raisins and other dry fruits or whole grains help to boost your fertility to a great extent by improving the production of sperm cells in males and the egg cells in females. Apart from that consuming broccoli, asparagus or milk boosts and strengthens your reproductive tissues. Using spices like turmeric or cumin in your daily diet helps to clean the genital tracts in both males and females and also enhances the functions of the reproductive hormones.
2. Ayurvedic Medication:
There are certain ayurvedic herbal preparations which improve your fertility to a large extent. Herbs like ashwagandha, bringhana and shatavari are known to boost fertility greatly. Other herbs like red clover, flax seed, oat straw and wild yam have also been seen to remove blockages in the fallopian tubes. Yoga and meditation on a regular basis also help to regulate the hormone cycles.
