Ayurvedic medicine is a very ancient holistic healing system developed thousands of years ago in India. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is believed that the root causes of infertility include nervous system imbalances, physical and mental stress, disruption of natural biological rhythms, accumulated toxins in the body, poor nutrition, sluggish digestion and a weakened immune system.
In Ayurvedic medicine, it is believed that a person’s physical, spiritual and emotional well-being are all interconnected. Foods considered healing to infertility include grapes, pomegranate, seaweed, almonds, walnuts, mangoes, peaches, plums and pears. Spices recommended are cumin, which purifies the uterus in women and the genitourinary tract in men, turmeric, which improves the interaction between hormones and black cumin. Herbs used to help infertility include raspberry leaves, nettle leaves and flaxseed oil.
Herbs used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat infertility include Ashoka, Shatavari, and Kumari.
A fertility-strengthening treatment of a gentle daily warm oil massage of the abdomen in a clockwise motion to support the reproductive organs, followed by a warm bath or shower, is sometimes recommended.
