Studies have shown that the average sperm count has decreased by 48 percent since 1940. Female fertility has also decreased. There are many theories as to why this is the case, but many researchers believe that increased pesticides and chemical fertilizers can be the cause, as well as high levels of stress associated with modern life.
Maharishi Ayurveda, places great emphasis on health and well-being during conception and beyond. Not only does Ayurveda explain how to increase your fertility with diet, behavior and herbal supplements, it also focuses on how to create really healthy children.
“The Ayurvedic ideal goes beyond conception. Instead, the focus is on creating a child who is mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually sound – a wise and well-rounded child who will contribute to society and become an enlightened citizen.”
Factors involved in creating a healthy baby
What are the factors involved in creating a healthy baby?
According to Maharishi Ayurveda conception is due to healthy sperm, healthy egg and healthy uterus. Both for men and women reproductive healthdepends on the health of dhatu sugar or reproductive tissue. In women, the sugar tissue creates the egg as part of the monthly cycle, and in men, sperm are formed due to sexual stimulation.
Sugar tissue itself is created as part of a long chain of metabolic transformations, starting with the digestion of food and incorporating the transformation of food into nutrient fluid, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow and finally into tissue on sugar.
The healthy tissue of the sugars, then, according to Ayurveda, depends on the health of all other tissues (dhatus) in the body.
Diet and behaviors to increase fertility
There are two types of foods and herbs that help boost dhatu sugar and therefore help increase fertility. One is called donehana and these foods enhance the sugar by enhancing all seven dhatus. Foods and herbs from Vrishya are aimed specifically at shukra dhatu.
Since the first six dhatus are the raw material for the formation of reproductive dhatu, all dhatus must be completely healthy in order to form a healthy reproductive tissue. That is why the donehana diet that nourishes all seven dhatus is so important if you want to conceive.
Foods for the nutrition of all seven Dhatus (Bringhana)
- Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables
- Whole grains
- Milk proteins, including milk, moose and bread (fresh cheese made from milk)
- Mung gave
- Soaked almonds or soaked nuts (you can grind and add them to your vegetables)
- Sweet, juicy fruits like mango, peaches, plums and pears
- Dried fruits such as dates, figs and raisins
- Stewed apple for breakfast
If your digestion is strong, eat dhal government (available in Indian stores) prepared in equal parts turmeric, cumin, coriander and dill. Banana made with melted butter, cinnamon and cardamom is a delicious and useful dessert for people with strong digestion.
Foods To Improve Reproductive Tissue (Vrsia)
- Date milk shake
- Mango Shake Mango
- Rice pudding
Spices like quince powder, cumin (which cleanses the uterus in women and the genital tract in men), turmeric (to improve the interaction between hormones and target tissues) and black cumin.
In general, it is important to eat a wide variety of foods to get all the essential nutrients. Keep trying new vegetables and fruits and rotate your menus to make sure you don’t eat the same thing day after day.
Two-part fertility program
The Maharishi Ayurveda Medical Council recommends that the genital tract be cleaned first. Once the impurities and obstacles are removed from the area, the herbs can be really effective in reaching the target tissues.
Phase I – Cleaning before conception
- Organic Genitrac (2 tablets in the morning and evening)
- Elim-Tox-O (2 tablets in the morning and evening)
Phase II – increase fertility during conception
Vital Lady or Vital Man (2 tablets in the morning and evening)
The internal cleansing program should be done for three months before attempting to conceive. After detoxification, the couple should discontinue the purifying herbal compounds and should start taking Vital Man or Vital Lady daily. During this time they should try to conceive. The donehana and vrishya diet is ideal in both stages.
After the couple conceives, the woman should stop taking Vital Lady and should focus on a diet and daily routine especially suitable for pregnancy.
To support your daily mental workload, take Worry Free tablets (2 in the morning and evening). Alarm free tea and aroma oil can also help. If you need to dissolve emotional stress, take Blissful Joy tablets (2 in the morning and evening) and diffuse the oil of a blissful heart. For physical stress, use Kapha Organic Tea and follow the diet that soothes Kapha.
Increasing fertility later in life
Are there any special tips for couples who want to conceive after the age of forty? The Maharishi Ayurveda Medical Council recommends that both women and men focus more on the diet and routine – on the vrishya and kerhana diet.
Avoid stress as much as possible. Get down on time and don’t miss your morning massage. Take care of your protein needs, including some milk proteins in your diet, such as bread, milk and moose. Participate in spiritual practice such as the technique of Transcendental Meditation.
It is especially important for women to take care of themselves during menstruation. Follow the Ayurvedic instructions during this time:
- avoid traveling
- avoid skipping meals
- eat foods that are warm, light, and easy to digest
- and try to avoid foods or flavors that are highly chemical
- And take a real rest during your menstrual cycle.
If you want to conceive when you are older, you must be extremely careful about your overall health.
Even if you don’t want to conceive, it matters in improving the tissue of the sugar. Shukra has a dual function, producing not only semen and the egg, but ojas, the best digestive product. Ojas creates energy, bliss, lightness, endurance, immunity, glow in the skin, sparkles in the eyes and clarity of mind.
Ojas is vital to everyone’s health and happiness. Anyone who wants to increase mental clarity, immunity and spiritual well-being will find these recommendations helpful as they enhance the tissue of the sugars and thus enhance ojas.
