low libido natural cure

Ayurveda approach

For increasing low libido, the Ayurvedic programs and remedies can be effective in reducing stress and strengthening the reproductive system.

The desire for pleasure and satisfaction, that is libido, is derived from shukra dhatu (male reproductive tissue) and artava dhatu (female reproductive tissue). According to Ayurveda, libido is low when there is a weakness or debility in the male or female reproductive tissue. In addition, low sexual drive can be due to stress, health problems and even anxiety or emotional problems. It may affect one’s relationships or marriage but sometimes it is a healthy response by the body to shut off excess loss of health giving vital fluid.
