Sexual Dysfunction in Young Males and Females & Natural Management

Sexual dysfunction in young males and females is a concern and it is becoming increasingly common these days. While the male and female reproductive systems differ a lot in structure and function, some contributing factors can be shared, like stress and nutritional deficiencies. In female dysfunction the hormones have a great role to play and in males the nutrition has a major role. Sexual dysfunction can be managed with therapeutic yoga, herbal ayurvedic supplements and lifestyle modifications. This article describes male and female sexual dysfunction in detail along with the best yoga practices and herbal supplements to boost drive in both males and females. Lifestyle modifications are mentioned which should be taken seriously.


Both men and women may face issues in their sex drive but it is less common for women to talk about it. The inability to carry on or enjoy sex in young men and women is known as sexual dysfunction. The sex drive in humans can be understood as occurring in four phases - Desire, Arousal, Orgasm and Resolution. The resolution phase differs in men and women, while the first three are generally similar in all men and women. Sexual dysfunction can affect one or both partners at a time. It may have many factors, and the whole problem can be entirely different for men and women. Factors that contribute to sexual dysfunction can be physical, psychological, or hormonal.

Sexual Dysfunction in Young Males and Females


Sexual dysfunction in women can be affected by various things, the most important of which is the phase of their menstrual cycle and the hormones dominant at that time. Sensation of pain during the intercourse, inability to get aroused despite the partner being aroused, inability to reach an orgasm, the lack or loss of the desire to have sex, etc. are major forms of sexual dysfunction in women. Around one third of young women may have sexual dysfunction and they may not even realize it. Sexual dysfunction is common in older adults but for young women the fear of getting pregnant and having to take the responsibility of becoming a new mom is a common factor causing anorgasmia i.e. the inability to get an orgasm. Contributing causes in women can be:

  • Premenstrual or during menstruation or whenever the hormone estrogen is high, sexual desire is less in women.
  • In the initial stages of pregnancy when pregnancy is not even known the drive may have already reduced.
  • Some women may be annoyed by the thought of having sex during the time they are pregnant.
  • Phases of menstrual cycle can have different symptoms in the reproductive organs; such as dryness or lack of natural lubrication in the sex organs can be caused by improperly functioning local glands responsible for lubrication. It can result in painful sex for both partners.
  • Some chronic health conditions can interfere with the sex drive of women, such as thyroid imbalances, ovarian cyst disorders, arthritis, uterine abnormalities such as fibroids or endometriosis, etc.
  • Some acute health conditions such as fever or malaise, nausea or premenstrual symptoms, mood swings, etc. can temporarily interfere with sex drive in women.
  • Perimenopause i.e. the age of early forties to late fifties can have great fluctuations of hormones in women. It impacts sexual function.
  • Nutritional deficiencies can cause problems with blood flow which should be increased for sex to be enjoyed.
  • Women on certain medications such as antidepressants can find it extremely difficult to enjoy sex.
  • Stress, anxiety and tension, both acute and chronic, have great impact on the sex drive.
  • The partner’s attitude may be a turn off for many individuals.
  • If an individual has been abused sexually in the past by other or the same partner, their sex drive is affected profoundly and it shall take time, cooperation, care and patience to recover.


Although older adults find it common to have problems in their sexual function, these days younger males are also having issues with their reproductive health and sexual performance. The most experienced and reported problems with male sexual function are – problems getting or maintaining an erection of the sex organ, not being able to maintain orgasm as long as their partner, not being able to relieve i.e. ejaculate fluid, or reduced desire for sex altogether.  The factors that cause these problems can be:

  • Hormonal, i.e. irregularity or reduced secretion of the male sexual hormone, testosterone.
  • Being concerned or nervous about their own sexual performance.
  • Not being comfortable with their partner.
  • Chronic or acute stress, anxiety or tension.
  • Interference of past sexual experiences.
  • Other thoughts, such as family or work related ones interfering during sex.
  • Lack of blood circulation in the sex organs.
  • Problems with the urinary tract.
  • Problems with the prostate gland.
  • Drug abuse has a severe adverse effect on sexual function in males.
  • Expectation for a partner to be sexually frank in a particular way.
  • Damaged nerves from past drug abuse.
  • Damaged nerves and muscles from nutritional deficiency.
  • Long repressed sexual desires.
  • Diabetes.
  • Certain medications such as antidepressants or steroids.
  • Overuse of drugs that are meant to improve sexual performance.
  • Overuse of stimulating material such as pictures or videos


Certain herbs and food items can have a direct impact on our reproductive mechanisms. The following herbs and food items have a direct or indirect impact on one’s sexual performance in both men and women:

  • Saffron: this bright colored strand obtained from saffron flowers is an important and gourmet component in Indian cuisine, and it has great medicinal value. It is a natural aphrodisiac and boosts blood and nerve health.
  • Shilajit: Shilajit is extremely famous for its benefits in improving libido in men, but it is as beneficial for women too.
  • Gokhru (Tribulus terrestris):  a plant whose fruits are used in ayurvedic formulations, Gokhru improves sex drive in women as well as men.
  • Ginseng: Ginseng is being used in traditional medicine for improving vitality and rejuvenation. It improves sexual function.
  • Fenugreek: fenugreek is a common ingredient in Indian households but it is a secret of grandmothers that this little seed is very helpful in improving sex drive especially if it has been reduced due to an imbalance in hormones.
  • Nuts and seeds: Nuts and seeds that contain healthy oils and dense fatty acids are extremely beneficial for individuals whose sex drive has been adversely affected due to dietary insufficiencies.
  • Milk and Honey: this customary drink that is portrayed in cinema as the magic potion for new married couples actually has medicinal value as well. It is of great importance in ayurvedic remedies to improve libido.

  • Reduce alcohol consumption. Alcohol may seem to work in favor of your sexual function at first but in the long run it is very harmful since it damages the sensory nerves.
  • Eat a balanced diet. This way you can prevent nutritional deficiencies. Nutrients are essential for proper development and function of each organ in the body.
  • Practice yoga regularly even if you have no health problems. It is so because yoga will help maintain the state of health and prevent all diseases.
  • Hormones play a key role in sexual function in both males and females. Therefore hormone balance should be maintained via an active lifestyle and balanced diet.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight. Excess weight hampers the natural processes of the body, including hormones and metabolism.
  • Do not consume strong medications usually. The medications make the body dependent on them and also interfere with natural hormone production.
  • You should not shy away from discussing your problems with your partner and / or an expert.


Sexual dysfunction can be really frustrating especially when you are a young adult and have not even started entering late adulthood. Both men and women can face problems in their sex drive. Various factors that affect the sex drive in men and women should be discovered and eliminated. Women as well as men may find it challenging to speak to someone about it. But this is nothing to be embarrassed or hesitant about. You can join personal yoga sessions where your therapist shall evaluate your history in detail and will guide you about the most effective yoga practices and diet. The practices and supplements mentioned here are generally safe and effective for everyone but people with multiple conditions should compulsorily consult an expert before beginning any program.

Poland Syndrome and its Ayurvedic Management

Poland syndrome is a birth defect. Birth defects are also called congenital anomalies. Birth defects are those defects that occur before a baby is born. Symptoms usually appear within the first year of life. It may result in disabilities that may be developmental, physical or intellectual. These disabilities may range from mild to moderate. These birth defects are either structural or functional. The exact cause of these birth defects is not known. But it may result from genetic or chromosomal disorders. In this article we are going to discuss one of the birth defects that is Poland syndrome and its Ayurvedic management.


Poland syndrome is a disease in which there is a lack of muscle development on one side of the body. This is a birth defect that is characterized by underdeveloped chest muscles of one side of the body and also short webbed fingers. In this disease, the right side of the body is mainly involved. This syndrome consists of anatomic anomalies such as absence of sternocostal head of the pectoralis major muscle, absence of pectoralis minor muscle, digital anomalies such as syndactyly, absence of the affected side breast, rib aplasia. It is named after British surgeon Sir Alfred Poland. It is also called the Poland sequence.

Poland syndrome


The cause of this syndrome is unknown. But the researchers say that the syndrome develops due to an interruption of the blood supply to the arteries that lie under the clavicle or collarbone which is called subclavian artery. This blood supply hampers in the 46th day of embryonic development. This artery supplies blood to the embryonic tissue that gives rise to the chest wall and hand.


Patient has an asymmetrical body frame in this syndrome. Patient who is suffering from this syndrome may have following sign and symptoms:

  • Lack of one sided chest muscles
  • Chest appears concave
  • Syndactyly

This is diagnosed on the basis of physical appearance of the baby as discussed above such as absence of chest wall muscles, short forearm etc. Some imaging techniques are also useful in diagnosing this disease such as CT scan which may reveal the extent of muscles affected and also for ribs, shoulder blades.

Herbal Remedies for Russell Silver Syndrome

Russell silver syndrome is a condition that is characterized by intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Intrauterine growth restriction is a genetic condition that is caused during intrauterine life due to improper nutrition to the fetus. Obstetrics is a science of studying the health concerns of mother and fetus. The delivery of a child is based on various factors. A child's birth weight is one of the most important factors that affect the mortality and morbidity of the child. Apart from premature delivery, IUGR is the second cause of low birth weight babies. Intrauterine growth restriction can cause many anti-partam, Intrapartum, and postpartum complications in a fetus such as oligohydramnios acidosis, RDS, Russell silver syndrome, hyperviscosity syndrome, etc. But in this article, we are going to discuss one of the IUGR complications that are RSS i.e. Russell silver syndrome and its ayurvedic management.


Russell silver syndrome is a rare congenital growth disorder. This syndrome is one of 200 types of dwarfism and also one of the five types of primordial dwarfism. Males and females seem to be affected equally in number. It is associated with poor growth before birth and also after birth. This is genetically heterogeneous means that different genetic abnormalities can cause this syndrome. It was first described by Henry Silver in 1953 and Alexander Russell in 19541. These two discoverers saw different aspects of the same condition.

Russell Silver Syndrome


In the last few years, it has become possible to confirm the cause of this syndrome because of genetic testing. Two main genetic changes are currently known to cause this syndrome. One is chromosome 7 and another one is chromosome 11. These two chromosomal defects can cause this syndrome.


Signs and symptoms of RSS can vary from person to person. Symptoms of RSS are intrauterine growth restriction combined with the following symptoms:

  • Birth weight less than 2 kg
  • Baby refuses to feed
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Excessive sweating
  • Short stature
  • Scoliosis
  • Curving of the little finger (clinodactyly)
  • Body asymmetry that is arms and legs of different lengths
  • Delayed bone age
  • Psychosocial challenges
  • Poor appetite
  • Triangular face with a small jaw and pointed chin
  • Low muscle tone
  • Constipation


  • Temple syndrome


The diagnosis is made through clinical examination. But clinical examination alone can lead to overlaps with syndromes similar to this syndrome such as temple syndrome and 12q14 microdeletion syndrome. For this, you should go to test for 11p15 loss of methylation and mUPD7. If the report comes negative, then tests for mUPD16, mUPD20, and also testing for 14q32 should also take place for Temple syndrome for differential diagnosis. But mostly this syndrome is diagnosed by some clinical examination.


The treatment of choice is symptomatic. The caloric intake of children must be carefully controlled for providing the best opportunity for growth. If a child is unable to feed through the oral route then parenteral feeding should be done such as the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy. In limb length differences or scoliosis, physiotherapy can alleviate the symptoms. At last, surgery is needed to improve the posture of the baby.

Afraid of allopathic medicines and surgery? We have wonderful herbal formulations for the treatment of this disease. These herbal formulations have no side effects and prevent your child from surgeries also.


  • Use of dry foodstuffs should be avoided
  • A nutritious diet such as milk and meat soup should be used
  • Milk mixed with mulethi (glycyrrhiza glabra), the fruit of Kashmari (platenus orientalis) with sariva Hemidesmus indicus) and sugar
  • Meat soup should be given
  • Acharya Charaka has mentioned that when Vata is vitiated then the fetus gets emaciated. For the growth and development of this, the milk should be medicated with Sita (Saraca asoca), Kashmari (Platenus orientalis), and madhuka (Madhuca longifolia) and prescribed to the patient.

Hemochromatosis Treatment in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

Iron is one of the essential minerals present in the body that helps in growth as well as development. Iron helps in making hemoglobin, a protein present in red blood cells that is useful in carrying oxygen. The body stores almost 25 percent of the iron in the form of ferritin which is circulating in the blood. The average amount of iron stored in the adult male is 1,000 mg and adult women contain 300 mg but when this amount of iron is increased more than our body needs it gives rise to a disorder known as Hemochromatosis. In this article, we are going to discuss this disease in detail along with its management through herbal medicine.


It is the disorder that causes the body to absorb iron from the foods more than needed. This excessive amount of iron is then stored in the organs including the heart, pancreas, and liver. This much amount of iron results in life-threatening conditions like diabetes, liver disease, or heart problems. It is a genetic disorder that is found in a minority of people. The signs and symptoms of hemochromatosis are usually seen in midlife. It is difficult to diagnose the disease in the earlier stages and it cannot be prevented.

It is mostly seen in men as compared to women and is most common in African-American, American Indian as well as Hispanic.

Mainly Hemochromatosis are of two types first including the inherited type also called primary hemochromatosis or classical hemochromatosis where the problem occurs in DNA which is inherited from both the parents causing the body to absorb too much iron.

Another one is secondary hemochromatosis is the medical condition or treatment that can lead to iron overload including:-

  • Blood transfusion
  • Anemia
  • Injections
