Ayurvedic diet and infertility


Fertility is one of the best ways to gauge your overall health even if you do not wish to have children. The human body has naturally evolved for reproduction, and when the different systems of the body are in sync, your body is more fertile. However, if you are stressed or undernourished, it will reflect on your fertility.

Ayurvedic studies suggest that infertility occurs when there is a lack of nutrition in the reproductive tissues or Shukra dhatu. Infertility can be effectively tackled by adopting an Ayurvedic diet which focuses on the development of healthy reproductive tissues. Besides, experts suggest that no medication will be useful if the required diet is not observed.

Ayurvedic diet and infertility

Diet management, especially for fertility, strictly focuses towards Ojas, the primary essence of all the tissues in the body. Ojas is also considered as a sub-product of Shukra Dhatu. Thus, the diet primarily includes food items that nurture Ojas and excludes food items that diminish it. It is essential to note that the diet will regulate ovulation significantly and improve fertilization.
