Sexual dysfunction generally is classified into four categories: Desire disorders: lack of sexual desire or interest in sex. Arousal disorders: inability to become physically aroused or excited during sexual activity. Orgasm disorders: delay or absence of orgasm (climax).
As a complete medical science with a history spanning over 2,000 years, Ayurvedic literature deals with every aspect of human health. There is in fact an entire category of Ayurved that deals with sexual and reproductive wellness, called Vajikarana or Vrishya chikitsa. This is one of the 8 Ayurvedic specialties or chikitsas.
Treatment requires strict adherence to Ayurvedic lifestyle and diet recommendations, but it also recommends therapies of body cleansing, such as panchakarma. In addition, specific herbs and herbo-mineral formulations are prescribed for the treatment of sexual problems in men.
