FACTS ON MALE INFERTILITY IN ANCIENT AYURVEDA: HISTORICAL REVIEW

Jitendra Varsakiya, Divyarani Kathad

Abstract


The tread of sexuality is woven densely into the fabric of human existence. The rich heritage of Indian culture considered ‘Kama’ as one among the Purusharthas, the objectives of life. Ayurveda mentions diet (Ahara), sleep (Nidra) and Brahmacharya as the Tripods of life. Sex is a basic instinct, but sexual behaviour is a learned ability. Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha are four pillar of life mentioned in Ayurveda. The achievement of each of these is the basic need of every individual. The concept of Kama reveals that the recreational aspects like pleasure are equally important to its procreation aspects. Aim and objective: To reviled Ayurveda ancient knowledge by analyse our ancient text and propagate it to today’s era. Discussion: Male reproductive failure leading to infertility is a significant problem affecting more than 80 million couples worldwide also peoples are not much aware about sexual knowledge which can provide by branch of Ayurveda like Vajikarana. By ancient text like Vedas and Upanishadas, people can aware to huge knowledge of science of life and propagate it.
