Ayurveda treatment for Infertility:
Ayurveda takes a holistic view of health and treats the body as a whole instead of an individual illness. Once you visit a good ayurveda doctor, you will be asked to ask many questions before you diagnose. Once the doctor is sure of what afflicts your body, you will be ready to treat yourself!
The main goal of Ayurveda treatment for infertility is to ensure the proper transformation of food into nutrients that can be moved to the ‘dhatu shukra’. Some of the treatments used for infertility in Ayurveda are:
In swedanam the person is made to perspire for getting rid of impurities through sweat glands. This therapy is very helpful in curing vata dosh and can be done either by external application of heat or through a heat chamber with medicated steam.
Ayurveda practitioners use this method to induce sweating in patients suffering from infertility with the aid of heavy blankets or exercises. This is done to remove toxins from the body.
Here the vitiated dishes (or waste products) are treated through upper gastro-intestinal track. Also known as therapeutic vomiting it helps to clean Kappa, undigested food and Pitta. Emetic nut, liquorices and sweet flag are use in vamanam.
This Ayurveda therapy is somewhat uncomfortable, but ultimately, detoxification induces vomiting to rid body of undigested food.
