Low Sperm Count Treatment With Home Remedies

Low sperm count Worry not

If you are someone who’s thinking that a progenitive issue probably means a reproductive apocalypse, then let us happily lay it down for you as it is not. Because like everything else, a problem can be sorted out with a sensible approach. As the procreant urge of the world has been always going up and down every now and then, the tumors and wrong information regarding the same are numerous too. Filtering out the healthy information is a confusing task; nobody wants to risk it by accepting the false info. Especially when there is something bothering you about procreative abilities.

Just like the magazine’s layout glorifying information of women’s reproductive health and menstrual hygiene, there is a need for genuine documentation on men’s health and vitality as well.

Low Sperm Count

Low sperm count

The fertilizing ability of a spermatozoa highly depends upon the semen quality in a man. Male infertility and problems on semen quality are rising globally these days and have been reported world wide in major continents hence it’s important to understand the issue at hand. Decline in semen quality is the underlying reason behind most male infertility cases.

The proactive mechanisms of a sperm is activated during their genesis and epididymal maturation but a number of factors result in their low quality. The reasons may vary from

  • Poor nutrition
  • Sedentary habits
  • Oxidative stress resulting in free radical damage over sperm
  • Genetic factors
  • Other physiological differences
  • Chemical exposure (Pesticides, heavy metals, certain industrial substances etc)
  • Weight management issues
  • Alcoholism
  • Tobacco

These are mere postulated data but the reasons may vary from person to person.

We have easy diagnostic methods and treatments for male infertility with a known etiology but those without one might require a hard-nosed approach. And in the science of Ayurveda what matters isn’t just someone’s sexuality and physical wellness, the incredibly impressive psyche is the foundation for a healthy existence.

Normal sperm count

Normal sperm count is also known as normal sperm concentration and it is recorded as the semen with an average of 15 million sperm per millimeter and this is most likely to fertilize an egg.

Other factors determining quality of the semen includes, motility of sperm, and it’s morphology.

5 food items that will naturally boost your sperm count and sperm quality

1. Milk and Honey

Both of which have been advised by the ancient science of Ayurveda for its immunomodulatory and restorative actions. Milk is known for increasing vitality, nourishment of Dhatus (tissues) including reproductive tissues, it is a very well known aphrodisiac, and is regenerative in addition.
Honey curtails the solidified elements and fat along with its healing action and both milk and honey together work efficiently for sperm and semen quality.

2. Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate is rich with L- arginine HCL, which is an amino acid attributed to higher sperm count and quality when consumed in limited quantities. The researchers are of the opinion that “The darker the chocolate, the healthier the sperm will be.” These are known to help with better ejaculate, sperm count and motility all together.

3. Water

Water is that magical element which is more than hyped when it comes to clear skin, to lose weight, and even not to be left out in the case of reproductive health. Semen is highly liquid based and consumption of water helps in improved sperm production. But what needs to be taken care of is the diuretics you consume as well in a day like the caffeine. Diuretic food articles result in lower sperm counts hence it’s important to ensure that they are cut down while you maintain proper water consumption.

4. Pomegranates

Pomegranates are known for their antioxidant properties and ability to increase the blood circulation throughout the body. They reduce the inflammatory conditions and risks of cardiovascular diseases.
Pomegranates helps with the surge of testosterone, improves sperm quality and increases the sex drive. The antioxidants inside the pomegranate help the sperm fight against the oxidative radicals that cause damage.

5. Tomatoes

The most commonly available things like kitchen tomatoes have amazing health benefits. The cooked tomatoes possess an enriched lycopene content, which is a dietary supplement and the studies have proved that the same antioxidant significantly improves sperm motility, activity and structure helping with much better reproductive functions in men. Most common infertility issues like lower sperm count or erectile dysfunctions are taken care of by this commonly available red veggie.

Other food items that assists reproductive health in males include

Walnuts : Walnuts and similar nuts are a storehouse of healthy fats and proteins.
Omega-3 fatty acids and Arginine content inside the walnuts help to boost the volume of sperm and promote blood flow to the testicles. In addition, the antioxidants remove the toxins from the bloodstream as well.

Spinach and Asparagus : Folic acid content in green leafy vegetables helps in healthy fertilization. The rich vitamin C content in Asparagus helps protect the testicular cells which inturn will pave way to better sperm counts.

Rectal Polyps Treatment in Ayurveda

ABSTRACT

Large intestine is the last and an important part of our gastrointestinal tract. This part is responsible for the water absorption, formation & storage of faeces before defecation. It consists of 3 parts namely caecum, colon & rectum. Rectum is the end part of the large bowel which end up in anal canal, which is the end segment of GI tract that open up through anus. Sometimes, there is an abnormal growth of epithelial tissue at the mucosal level of rectum. These glandular overgrowth of rectal linings are known as rectal polyps. Rectal polyps are one of the most common diseases affecting the large bowel. Let’s discuss these in this article, having some Ayurvedic view of the disease & how to treat them according to Ayurveda.

INTRODUCTION

Rectal polyps are the non-malignant tumors that are sessile, flat or pedunculated (the polyp having a stalk). Mostly these polyps are symptomless and may never change to cancerous ones. However, a few polyps can gradually develop rectal cancer in approximately 8-10 years. Rectal polyps are almost the basic cause of all rectal carcinomas. This condition is best correlated with Malashyagat Granthyarbud, which means the arbud (tumor) that may have originated from granthi (glandular swelling) in malashaya i.e. the rectal region.

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

Rectal polyps is generally an asymptomatic condition. But in some cases it may show some manifestations such as:
Local clinical features include

  1. Bleeding from rectum that may occur during defecation.
  2. Mucous discharge in stools. (specially in villous adenomas)
  3. Altered bowel movements i.e. condition may present with diarrhea or sometimes with constipation.
  4. Pain in anal region

These local symptoms may lead to systemic features such as:

  1. Weight loss
  2. Fever
  3. Loss of appetite
  4. Nausea
  5. Vomiting
  6. Anemia

CAUSES

There is no exact cause of these polyps. However, some risk factors considered for the disease are<

  1. Older age
  2. Males are more prone than females.
  3. High fat diet.
  4. Excessive alcohol intake.
  5. Over consumption of Red meat.
  6. Obesity
  7. Smoking
  8. Sedentary lifestyle i.e. lack of physical exercise.
  9. Family history of rectal polyp.

Diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease that include Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease may increase the probability of the disease.

Ayurvedic Aspect

In Ayurveda, Mandagni (decreased digestive power) is considered as the basic cause of all the diseases. Mandagni in turn causes improper digestion of food which leads to the formation of Ama. This ama (endotoxins) travels in the whole body through the bloodstream or as undigested food. When these toxins reach the rectal region they will cause vitiation of tridosha which will end up in the formation of granthi (swelling) which is ultimately converted into arbud (tumors) which is relatable with Rectal polyp. The general features of Arbud as mentioned by Acharya in Sushruta Sutra 11/12-14 are

ancient reference

After consumption of various Nidana the vitiated Vata etc. three dosha will travel in whole body and may violate the Mans dhatu that results in the formation of round, stable, less painful, may big in size, broad based, slow growing, without suppuration a collection of cells (swelling) is created which is known as tumor.
Here, in this case, the basic nidana is Ama i.e. endotoxins that are produced due to mandagni, the mans dhatu refers to the lining of rectal region and the tumor thus, formed is Malashyagat granthyarbud i.e. Rectal polyp.

DIAGNOSIS

As rectal polyps are basically precancerous lesions, the timely diagnosis of these are of great importance. The investigations required for diagnosis other than the patient’s history & clinical features are:

  • Digital rectal exam.
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy.
  • Colonoscopy
  • Biopsy
  • MRI.

TREATMENT

Treatment protocol for rectal polyp is as follows:

  • Nidana Parivarjan
  • Shodhan Chikitsa
  • Shaman Chikitsa
  • Lifestyle modification

Nidana parivarjan means that the possible causative & risk factors must be avoided.

Shodhan Chikitsa including Basti, specifically Lekhan basti, are useful in this condition. Also, Anuvasan basti with jatyadi taila is beneficial in these conditions.

Shaman Chikitsa includes the treatment of mandagni, the basic cause of the disease and also some local applications for pain-relieving & preventing the disease from aggravation. Shaman chikitsa include the use of various herbs or herbal formulations for treating the disease & its cause.

The standardized extract of manjistha (Rubia cordifolia) is available in capsule form. Manjistha is described by Acharya Charka in Rakt shodhak mahakshay. It has been a well-known blood purifier since ages. As mentioned in this article, the bloodstream carries the endotoxins to the lining of rectum which is responsible for disease production. Thus, purification of blood will aid in reducing the effect of the disease and preventing further increase of the polyp.

Dosage– 2 capsules twice daily after meals

4. Gandhak Rasayan

Gandhak rasayan is the best classical medicine having many antioxidants which have a major role in rejuvenating. It is a single mineral formulation made from purified Sulphur.

These all herbs have a cumulative rapid recovery action.

Nirgundi oil is the best for painful conditions of rectal polyp as the ingredient i.e. Nirgundi (Vitex negundo) is considered as the best analgesic and anti-inflammatory. These both Jatyadi taila & Nirgundi taila due to their lubricating action facilitate the easy passage of stool thus preventing painful defecation & rectal bleeding.

Method of application: Mix both jatyadi & nirgundi oils. Heat the mixture a little and then apply it locally twice daily.

CONCLUSION

Ayurveda despite being an ancient Science is very much effective & having comparatively less side effects to these types of modern lifestyle & dietary disturbances. Most of the people thought that the surgical removal of the polyp was the best & most effective way of treating them. But they are not right as due to the high rate of recurrence these appear back as he/she continued to consume the nidans. Therefore, early detection & timely herbal treatment with Ayurvedic formulation is the best option to prevent its later complications, i.e. rectal cancer.
