What Ayurvedic solutions are available for premature ejaculation?
As per Ayurveda, premature ejaculation could be caused by stress, anxiety, depression, prior experience of sexual repression, emotional troubles in the couple or other relationship issues. Likewise, physical reasons that may be at fault include diabetes, swollen prostate gland, cardiovascular conditions or different types of sexually transmitted disorders. Ayurveda holds the view that Shukra dhatu or semen weakens in its consistency if there’s excessive pitta or fire in the body. Vitiated pitta enters the channels carrying semen in the body, making the sperm lose its consistency and be released before sufficient erection. Also, aggravation of vata dosha – representing the qualities of airiness, quickness and sensitivity to touch – can result in sooner-than-normal ejaculation. Together, the imbalance of vata and pitta doshas can lead to hyperactivity of the penile muscles, enhancing its responsiveness to vibration and thereby causing premature ejaculation. As a result, the Ayurvedic solution of premature ejaculation problem focuses on balancing vata and pitta doshas. Balanced diet, herbal remedies, yoga, counseling and meditation can help achieve this outcome. Avoid hot, salty, spicy, preserved and fermented foods. Chilies, pickles and garlic should also be avoided. Naturally sweet foods, such as butter, milk, almonds, black gram, raisins, asparagus and licorice exert a cooling effect on the body.
