 Aphrodisiacs in Ayurveda (Vajikarana)


Ayurveda is the richest heritage of the world, its principles and guidelines are laid by the Vedas, which are considered as the oldest available literature of the world.  Ayurveda is subdivided into eight (8) branches amongst them Vajikarana is one which deals with promotion of sexual health and prevention and cure of sex related disorders.


Vajikarana has been described specially to improve the sexual health, to enhance the status of Shukra (everything related to male sexual potency) and to please the mind.  This therapy provides potentiality for getting progeny and causes instantaneous sexual excitation sufficient enough to get satisfaction and enabling him to satisfy his partner too. The drugs used for this treatment are known as Vrishya drugs.  Vrishya Karma is defined as a therapy for getting sexual urge and energy like a bull.  Role of such type of drugs may be to tone up the body by restoring physiology.  They may be having nutritive value or may be functioning through the neuromuscular systems or limbic systems.  These drugs enhance the blood circulation and produce general well being toning up the mental and physical functions. The drugs are broadly classified as Shukravriddhikara (drug which producing more sperms), Shukra-srutikara (drug which secreting more sperms during the intercourse), Shukra-vriddhi-srutikara (drug which producing and secreting men during the intercourse), and Shukra-stambhaka (drug which withholding ejaculation during the intercourse), etc.


The advent of modern techniques and costly treatment are inaccessible to the persons of middle and lower economic strata who are more likely having above problem. The term Vrishya karma is intended to deal with both the problems of Vandhyatva (Male infertility) and Klaivya (Male Sexual dysfunction).
