Sexual Health for Men and Women with Ayurveda
The three pillars essential for sustaining a healthy human life are food, sleep and sex. Ayurveda, the science of life gives as much importance to sex as to food and sleep.
The ancient sex science book “Kama Sutra” also explains the same and also adds the importance of Vajeekarana (Aphrodisiac therapies) for improvement of sexual life in men and women.
Ayurveda and its emphasis on sex
- Sex is an integral part of our daily habits (Dina charya)
- The ideal time for intimacy is at night, about two hours after dinner
- An absolutely satisfying sexual union, when developed over time, bestows you and your partner with health and vitality.
- For best results, each of the partners should be physically and emotionally involved with the other.
- Touch, smell, food, music and ambience play a vital role in developing, increasing and prolonging intimacy.
Perverted or unsatisfying sex has adverse effects on mental and physical health, as it aggravates the functional elements (doshas) and reduces immunity.

Foods and Aphrodisiac Therapy
Foods such as milk, meat soup and boiled rice along with ghee, oil, meat juice, sugar and honey improves sexual vigour for both men and women.
Vrishya chikitsa or Vajeekarana chikitsa refers to Ayurvedic aphrodisiac therapy, one anga (branch) of ashtanga Ayurveda (eight branched Ayurveda). It has the most respected position in Ayurvedic treatment.
Vrishya chikitsa is the method of strengthening sukra dhathu, or the reproductive tissues of the body. The principle aim of Ayurvedic aphrodisiac therapy is aimed at the birth of healthy children.
Vrishya chikitsa described in Ashtanga Ayurveda addresses the reasons for sexual inefficiency and directs the use of several aphrodisiac herbs and minerals to enhance vitality.
Charak, in his great Ayurvedic classic writing Charak Samhita has prescribed the use of aphrodisiacs that enhance the potency of a person. The herbs and treatment are for both men and women.
The aphrodisiacs also nourish the body. There are ancient scripts that suggest celibacy as the best way for a healthy life. Nevertheless, Ayurveda dismisses this view as impracticable. Shukra or shukla, the reproductive tissue of the body is also responsible for the immunity of our body.
Vajeekarana chikitsa strengthens all dhatus (tissues) of the body and gives a state of health and relaxation to the person. It involves living in strict compliance with Ayurvedic directions and taking herbs or herbal combinations that have aphrodisiac properties.
Shilajit, Mucuna Pruriens (naikkurana), Aswagandha, etc are well known Ayurvedic aphrodisiacs that give extra sexual power to couples and enable them to give birth to healthy children.
Treatments for sex related problems include Ayurvedic panchakarma, massage therapies, Rasayana Chikitsa, etc.
