How to Increase Sperm Count with Ayurveda
An increase in the temperature of the testicles reduces sperm count. So, wear loose undergarments, wash testicles with cold water and avoid hot showers and saunas.
Massaging the body with oil, a technique known as abhayanga in Ayurveda, increases blood circulation and sperm count. Abhayanga slackens aging, boosts health and increases the libido.
Restrict masturbation and frequent sex, as continual ejaculations reduce the density of the semen.
Alcohol consumption and smoking affect the liver and cause a dramatic rise in oestrogen levels. This results in low sperm count.
Keep your weight in check as weight increase causes hormonal imbalances which in turn reduce testosterone levels in males. Exercise regularly and stay fit.
Eat a nutritious, low fat diet which is high in proteins, vegetables and whole grains.
Reduce stress by regular meditation and yoga. Psychological factors such as stress and strain are known to reduce sperm count.
There are some herbal remedies also to increase sperm count with ayurveda. Certain herbs, known as bajikaran dravya in ayurveda are known to increase the sperm count as well as their quality.

Weight gain can result from an increase in body fluid, muscle mass, or fat. An increase in body fluid can come from medications, fluid and salt retention, intravenous fluid infusion, kidney or heart failure. An increase in body fat is commonly seen as a result of diet or lack of exercise as the body converts muscle to fat. An excessive weight gain is referred to as obesity. Obesity is a function of environmental (diet, exercise, lifestyle, etc.), hormonal, and inherited (genetic) factors in varying degrees. Obesity is associated with increased risk of illness, disability, and death. Excessive weight can result in many serious, and potentially deadly, health problems, including hypertension, Type II diabetes mellitus (non-insulin dependent diabetes), increased risk for coronary disease, increased unexplained heart attack, hyperlipidemia, and infertility etc.


Signs and Symptoms

Reduction of longevity, premature ageing, low sex drive, poor sexual performance, unpleasant body odour, excessive sweating, breathlessness on exertion, difficulty in breathing, excessive hunger, excessive thirst, difficulty in walking, tiredness, general debility, loss of vitality and mental confusion.

Treatment Plan

Depending on your body type, the medication varies. If you are diagnosed as vaata type, then purification procedures for vaata, like cleansing enemas, will be carried out. After this, you may be subjected to mild oil application and fomentation. The only minimum oil application is used for treating obesity, enough to protect the body from the heat of fomentation.

External oil application is carried out with oil containing hot herbs like calamus, ginger and mustard. Fomentation or sweating methods will be done externally or internally. External fomentation can be done by various methods, like whole-body fomentation via a steam box. After fomentation, oil enemas will be given followed by cleansing enemas. The latter usually contains a decoction of dasamoola, honey, salt, some specific herbs and water. However, most of the Ayurvedic physicians prefer alternate oil and cleansing enemas.

If you are diagnosed as kapha type, then for alleviating kapha, external massage with powders of agarucalamus, ginger or mustard will be done. These substances help to remove excess fat deposited under the skin. They also help to restore the elasticity to the skin and improve complexion.

Treatment of aama, which is an important treatment modality, will be done by two methods—one by administering the herbs which remove aama (aama paachana) and secondly by increasing the conversion power of agni by giving substances that stimulate digestion. The herbs used for this purpose are dry ginger, black pepper, gudoochi, turmeric, cyperustriphala etc.

In obese persons, though the digestive fire may be optimum that of the adipose tissue level is impaired. To improve its power, herbs like trikatushilajitcyperuskashtha, barberry, calamusativishakatukachitrakakaranja, turmeric, gugguluarjunacatechu, camphor, neemrohitakashinshipaapaamargabrahmibilwa are used.



As far as the diet is concerned, you can use basmati rice, barley, green gram, red gram and horse gram.


Honey is the only sweetener that is allowed while treating obesity, but it should be original honey, directly collected from honeycombs.


Drink warm water instead of refrigerated water.


For cooking purposes, use sesame oil or mustard oil with spices like turmeric, black pepper, ginger and rock-salt.


Use vegetable with astringent, bitter and pungent tastes. If you are particular about your weight, then, fasting for one to two days a week or partial fasting and drinking fruit juices, warm water and honey, will be helpful.


Avoid eating substances prepared with refined wheat flour like white bread, cakes, pastries and abstain from dairy products and sweets prepared from milk and sugar. You should also avoid cold drinks, alcohol and deep fried foods and non-vegetarian diet.


Follow an active pattern of life by increasing work and mental activity. Staying up late at night is beneficial as well. You should avoid taking too much rest, sleeping during the day (particularly after meals), applying oil to the skin, and bathing with cold water.


Whatever the ultimate cause of obesity in your case, the immediate cause is energy imbalance, and weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing energy intake or by increasing output, or by a combination of the two.

Ayurvedic Remedies

Following are the prescriptions to reduce overcorpulence:



Diets and drinks that alleviate vaata and kapha and which can reduce fat.


Varsity karma (Ayurvedic special procedure resembling enema) with drugs that are sharp, ununctuous and hot.


Unction with ununctuous drugs.


Intake of Gudoochee (Tinospora cordifolia), Mustaa (Cyperus rotundsa) Hareetakee (Terminalia Chebula), Bibhitaka (Terminalia belerica) and Aamalaka (Embica officinalis).


Administration of Takraarishta and pure honey.


Intake of Vidanga (Embelia riba), Naagara (Zingiber officinale), Yavakshaara (a proportion of barley containing sodium and potassium bicarbonate), powder of black iron along with honey and powder of Yava (Hardeum Bulgaria) and Aamlakee (Emblica officinalsis).


Administration of Silaajatu and the juice of Agnimantha (Clerodendrum phlomidis).


The Ayurvedic method to treat obesity is to go on a heavy and non-nourishing diet and drugs. For example, honey. Due to their heaviness, they minimize the force of the aggravated power of digestion and due to their non-nourishing nature, they help reduce the fat.


It is generally recognized that no two persons are exactly alike, scientifically speaking, nor do they react alike, and a diet or drug that agrees with one may disagree with another. That is why, Ayurveda, while describing the principles of therapeutics, mentions that ‘the physician must take into consideration the fact that drugs differ with respect to land, season, source, flavor, taste, potency, post-digestive effects and specification, and also that men differ with respect to their body, constitution, age, vitality, gastric fire, morbid tendency, proclivities, homologation and the state of disease. In other words, a more personalized approach is necessary while treating obesity.
