Ayurvedic Medicine and Premature Ejaculation

General Ayurveda
 
Ayurveda/Ayurvedic medicine is a form of alternative medicine that has its roots in India of eons ago. The word “Ayurveda” is made up of other two words from an old Indian language called Sanskrit. The first word, Äyus, means “life” or “long life,” and the second one, veda, means “related to knowledge” or “knowledge of”. In essence, to know about life or a long life is, therefore, what Ayurveda is.
 
Gleanings from the vast Indian medical literature from the Vedic period reveals that Ayurveda is really a philosophy that looks at a person as a unique individual made up of five primary elements, which are the same elements of nature we all have heard about before: air, fire, water, earth and space. In Ayurveda, these elements can combine in pairs to form three physiological functions called dosha or dosas (which literally translates to “that which deteriorates”).
 
Space and air combine in the body to form what is known in Ayurveda as the Vata dosha, which governs “movement” by directing nerve impulses, circulation, respiration, and excretion. Fire and water combine to form the Pitta dosha, responsible for transformation of foods into nutrients that our bodies can assimilate and for metabolism in cells, in organs and tissue systems. Finally, water and earth combine to form the so-called Kapha dosha, responsible for growth and for offering protection to the body.
 
According to Ayurvedic medical theory, these dosas, as they are called, are important for health because when they exist in balanced quantities, the body will be healthy; and when they are greatly imbalanced, the body becomes unhealthy in various ways. The theory goes even further to state that each individual possesses a unique combination of dosas that define the individual’s temperament and unique characteristics.
 
Those who practice Ayurvedic medicine today use these theories as a model to look at each individual as a unique makeup of his or her three dosas, and using them to develop a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of individuals’ various ailments and health problems.
 
Ayurvedic medicine also focuses on exercises, yoga and meditation, and stresses the use of plant-based medicinal preparations.
 
Hundreds of plant-based medicines including cardamom and cinnamon preparations are employed, although some animal products such as bones and fats, and minerals such as sulphur, arsenic and lead are also used and prescribed for both internal and external use!
 
Ayurvedic Medicine for Premature Ejaculation (PE)
 
The practitioners of modern Ayurveda claim that a male individual experiences premature ejaculation when the suitable balance of the Vata dosha in his body has been upset, causing disruptions in nerve impulses, circulation and respiration, which in turn leads to a very quick excretion of shukra (semen) during sex.
 
In an attempt to restore the balance and, in turn, cure PE, a number of medicinal preparations are used. Herbs like the Himalayan shilajit and dhatupaustic churna and other assorted substances are used in an attempt to improve sexual prowess by maintaining a healthy balance between mind and body.
 
As for the question of whether these preparations actually work to cure PE, it’s not an easy one to answer. Such treatments, for example, don’t have any clinical trials and there’re therefore no statistical data to back up the claims of those advocating Ayurveda.
 
Final Thoughts
 
There are obviously patterns between the wisdom of the ancient East and the scientific medicine of the modern West that are in agreement here.
 
It is not difficult, for example, to see that the disruptions of the Vata dosha in Ayurveda are very similar to a phenomenon we’d refer to as “stress” (which is a well known contributing factor to PE) here in the West, or that Ayurveda’s focus on “exercises” and yoga strike a close resemblance to the sort of exercises and mental healing you’d get in sexual therapy and psychotherapy sessions for PE treatment.
 
What’s in the ancient East as non-scientific wisdom has long since been refined and made safer in the West. But for us in the West there’s something very exotic about such alternative medicines from ancient times I suppose. Perhaps this is part of the reason why we find these treatment approaches appealing still even though, when all is said and done, they offer nothing profoundly different from what’s already available here at home, made safer and better no less.
 
With safety concerns having already been raised about Ayurveda by two U.S. studies, finding about 20% of Ayurvedic treatments containing toxic levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic, and concerns over the use of herbs that contain toxic compounds and the lack of quality control in Ayurvedic facilities, I argue that our love affair with the exotic in this case is not only unnecessary but also downright dangerous.
