Ayurveda and Sexual Health
In Ayurveda, sex or abramacharya as it is known is given due importance for maintaining one’s mental and physical health. Sex is considered one of the three aspects of life which maintain health, along with diet and sleep.
Abramcharya is a controlled and disciplined manner of sexual intercourse which helps to maintain the bodily doshas or fundamental principles. It has greater significance in maintaining the manasika doshas, the mind level.
Sex Health Benefits
- Good memory
- Long life
- Acuity of sense organs
- Strength and slow aging
The health benefits of sex can be achieved by having proper and disciplined sexual intercourse.
Effects of improper Sexual Intercourse
- Weakness of the thighs
- Loss of strength
- Depletion of the tissues
- Loss of strength in the sense organs
- Premature death
Excessive sexual intercourse or overexertion provokes the Vata dosha in the body and thereby diminishes the nourishing Kapha dosha and dhatus. The vital essence of the body (ojas) may also be diminished.
