The urbanization of life style has had its impact on most of us. As per the principles of ayurveda, this increases the quantity of diseases causing substances, called malas. Activity is always good for the body but, as the pace of life overtakes human ambitions, a person becomes ill at ease while trying to keep pace. He/she faces diseases like Stress, Strain, Depression, Arthritis, Asthma, Obesity, Diabetes, Cancer, etc.

In other words, de-generative diseases set in, slow the pace and defeat the purpose of his/her life. Throughout our life span, tissues and cells are destroyed by the body and replaced again by newer ones. With age however, the replacement is negligible leading to health problems.

Definition of Erectile Dysfunction

Definition of Erectile Dysfunction Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability of a man to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for his sexual needs or the needs of his partner. Erectile dysfunction is sometimes called as “impotence”.

The term "erectile dysfunction" can mean the inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or the ability to achieve only brief erections.

Ayurveda defines Erectile dysfunction or ED as follows.

  • Sankalpapravano nityam priyaam vashyaamapi sthreeyam.
  • Na yaathi lingashaithilyaath kadaachidyaathi vaa yadi
  • Shwaasaarthaha swinnagaatrshcha moghasankalpacheshtitaha
  • mlaanashishnashcha nirbeejaha syodetat klaibyalaxanam

This means even though a man has a strong desire to perform sexual act with a cooperative partner he can not perform sexual act because of looseness (absence of erection ) of his phallus ( penis). Even if he performs sexual with his determined efforts he does not get erection and gets afflicted with tiredness, perspiration and frustration to perform sex

Causes of ED

Erection requires a sequence of events. Erectile dysfunction can occur when any of the events is disturbed. Nerve impulses in the brain, spinal column, around the penis and response in muscles, fibrous tissues, veins, and arteries in and around the corpora cavernosa constitute this sequence of events. Injury to any of these parts which are part of this sequence ( nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, fibrous tissue ) can cause ED.

Lowered level of testosterone hormone: The primary male hormone is testosterone. After age 40, a man's testosterone level gradually declines. About 5% of men that doctors see for erectile dysfunction have low testosterone levels. In many of these cases, low testosterone causes lower sexual interest, not erectile dysfunction.

The whole male body responds to testosterone. The same response of body

Even sushruta has illustrated about this response of body to the element “Shukra” . He has said
"yatha payasi sarpistu goodashchekshow raso yatha shareereshu tatha shukram nrinaam vidyaadhbishagwara" This means " The shukra ( the element which helps in reproduction) is present all over the body . This can be explained with the following examples.

  1. The ghee is present in milk in an invisible form. This is extracted from milk using many processes.
  2. The sugar is present all over the sugarcane. It is extracted by subjecting the sugarcane to number of processes.

Same way shukra is present all over the body. But the cream of shukra (semen) comes out of the body only during the process of ejaculation. But this process of ejaculation needs a joyful union of mind and body.

Decrease in production of “Shukra” causes erectile dysfunction.

Over exertion - physically and mentally : Working for long hours in office, mental stress at office and home, short temperedness ,insufficient sleep cause erectile dysfunction.

These causes are explained in ayurveda as "shoka chintaa, bhaya, traasaat .... " which means that erectile dysfunction or Impotence occurs due to grief, fear, anxiety and terror.

Strained relationship with sexual partner: Erectile dysfunction also occurs when there is a disliking towards sexual partner.

Diseases that cause Erectile dysfunction: Neurological disorders, hypothyroidism, Parkinson's disease, anemia, depression, arthritis, endocrine disorders,diabetes, diseases related to cardiovascular system also become reasons for erectile dysfunction..

Consumption of medicines, drugs and tobacco: Using antidepressants, tranquilizers and antihypertensive medicines for a long time, addiction to tobacco especially smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol, addiction to cocaine, heroin and marijuana cause erectile dysfunction.

In ayurveda texts these causes have been said in brief as "rukshamannapaanam tathoushadham" - "dry food , drinks and medicines" cause impotence or erectile dysfunction.

Trauma to pelvic region: accidental injury to pelvic region and surgeries for the conditions of prostate, bladder, colon, or rectal area may lead to erectile dysfunction.

These causes are mentioned as abhighata (trauma), shastradantanakhakshataha (injury from weapons, teeth and nail.) in ayurveda. Other Reasons: Obesity, prolonged bicycle riding, past history of sexual abuse and old age also cause Erectile dysfunction.
