Sex is one of the most essential aspects of our life and Ayurveda offers one of the best ways to lead a gratifying sex life without any artificial aids such as medicines minus side effects and other unnatural methods
Ayurvedic medicines stimulate the body to heal itself naturally. There are many Ayurvedic herbs which act as very effective sex tonics and also have the ability to revitalise the bodily systems making them free from diseases. These inexpensive and often rather ordinary looking Ayurvedic herbs produce excellent results if taken properly, as they are also free from any side effects.
"On their own however these might not even work for you," cautions Dr. M.P. Mani, (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery). He further adds, "In Ayurveda there are three main organising principles of nature that are found in every person, in nature, and in all other beings. These principles operate throughout nature and can be seen in the changes of the time of day and the change of seasons. These three governing principles are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha doshas and on the basis of these, herbs used in combination deliver satisfactory results. Although adaptogenic herbs (herbs that increase body's resistance to stress, trauma and fatigue ) are similar in concept, each herb is unique and should be chosen with care and under the guidance of a good Ayurvedic practitioner. If we just treat each patient in the same way, then it is not effective. Ayurveda, however, recognises that each person is unique and each person needs to be treated according to the imbalance of their doshas ."
What is Vata, Pitta and Kapha ?
Dr. Mani, says, " Vata is responsible for all movement in the body and controls respiratory organs, circulation, movement in the digestive tract, and impulses traveling through the nerves. Pitta is energy and it regulates the digestive process, metabolism, heat, and energy production, while Kapha balances the fluids.
Each individual is made up of the three doshas , yet in varying degrees. A person with more Vata will be thin, quick, creative, lively in thoughts, speech and action, and can make friends easily. However, if the Vata is out of balance, that person will be anxious, worried, overwhelmed, fretful, have dry skin and high blood pressure.
A person with a predominance of Pitta in his physiology will be of medium proportions, with a frame that is neither petite nor heavy. They will have a warm, sensitive skin, fine hair and will be sharp and determined in thought, speech and action. However, if the Pitta is out of balance, that person can be irritable, angry, demanding, and impatient, prone to skin rashes, premature graying, and thinning of hair.
A Kapha-type person is of larger proportions with good muscles. They have thick, smooth skin and rich, wavy hair. They are generous, kind, forgiving, calm, loyal and possess a good memory. Out of balance Kaphas are dull and lethargic, have oily skin, they gain weight, and have a slow digestion. They can become emotionally attached, and suffer from allergies, congestive problems and heart disease.
