Ayurveda is an ancient form of holistic medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years around the world. It originated in India, though in recent years, the Ayurvedic practices have gained popularity in the west, as people look for more natural remedies for specific ailments and other practices to benefit their overall health.

Ayurvedic medicine has been used for everything ranging from helping to boost immunity to preventing inflammation in the body and warding off the common cold.

The philosophy is rooted in the belief that overall health can never be fully achieved without the balance of the mind, body, and soul. Ayurvedic medicine aims to maintain health and prevent disease and discomfort first and foremost, rather than act as a reactionary measure once a person has already fallen ill.

In addition to physical elements of Ayurvedic medicine, such as holistic herbs or yogic exercises, Ayurveda believes in the power of the universe; when energies are disrupted, physical ailments can manifest.

Ayurvedic Medicine and Your Sexual Health

Maintaining sexual health is just as important as keeping our immune systems or preventing aches and pains in the body, and Ayurveda can be used to benefit your sexual health too. Here are the five best ayurvedic medicines for sexual health.

1) Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha has been touted as a miracle herb of sorts, with individuals reporting reduced levels of stress and anxiety after consuming capsules or powder containing the Ayurvedic medicine. It makes sense that it would aid in sexual health, as the Ayurvedic model believes that when we are mentally at our best, we are physically at our best as well.

Mental roadblocks leading you to have trouble orgasming? Not only does Ashwagandha help regulate sexual hormones, but with mental benefits as well, it’s great for promoting your sexual health.

Ashwagandha has been found to increase sperm count and fertility in men. Additionally, it has been shown to help reduce symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction Disorder.

2) Deep Breathing Exercises

That’s right; deep breathing exercises are an element of Ayurvedic medicine and can promote your sexual health. When we are centered, we are fully present, promoting deeper relationships with our partners.

This can lead to increased sexual pleasure, and aid in clearing our minds so that we can focus on what we’re doing without intrusive thoughts of the outside world entering our consciousness. Practice deep breathing exercises daily for maximum benefit.

3) Turmeric

Turmeric has long been thought to serve as an aphrodisiac, and it was even mentioned in the ancient Indian text Kama Sutra in regard to its ability to aid in sexual stimulation, which is great for both men and women. Additionally, turmeric has been thought to aid in the process of healing for women following childbirth.

4) Shatavari

This one’s for you, ladies. Shatavari, or Asparagus racemosus, has been studied by the International Journal of Pharmaceutical & Biological Archives, and has been deemed to be a “versatile female tonic.” It’s rich in essential vitamins and minerals such as zinc, potassium, calcium, and many more, and is believed to not only aid in proper ovulation but also to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause.

5) Ginseng

You’ve probably heard of this one before; ginseng is an ancient herb that can benefit both men and women in the bedroom. Studies show that ginseng can boost libido in both sexes, and similar to turmeric, it is an herb that you can easily find at local drug stores or supermarkets in various forms as supplements.

Aside from sexual health, ginseng has also been shown to aid in the reduction of inflammation, boost the immune system, and increase energy levels, approaching all aspects of the human mind and body.

A Note from GR8NESS

It’s important to remember that with Ayurvedic medicine, no one single herb, exercise, or activity is believed to solve or cure health problems. Sexual health, according to Ayurvedic medicinal methods, must be addressed on all levels. From what you eat, to how you think, the physical activities you participate in, and the people you surround yourself with, everything matters. All must be aligned for optimal results.
