Every day I end up reading so many queries related to sexual health disorders like PME ( Premature Ejaculation), ED (Erectile Dysfunction), Spermatorrhoea, loss of libido in women and many more. Because of hesitation, people don’t consult a doctor personally . Rather they discuss it among their friends, their colleagues or they look for some fancy advertisement and buy some products. Either these medicines don’t help them or they give side effects and last wastage of money.
What is the Solution?
Change Perception: Sexual health issue is not a matter of shame. It is just like any other disease like cough and cold.
Consult Ayurveda Physician personally: Doctor will prescribe your medicine as per your need.
How we can help?
Our Ayurvedic sages acknowledged the requirement and they divided Ayurveda into eight branches. one such branch is Vajikarana
Vājīkaraṇa is a special branch of Āyurveda which is practiced to promote the health and sexual life of the healthy men as well as of the sexually weak patients.
Vajikarana is just not only a science of aphrodisiacs, virility but it helps in improving the health and strength of progeny (offsprings)
Ayurveda offers a huge range of medicines in the form of churna, tablets, avaleh.

The acid (HCL) in the moderate or mild condition known as hyperacidity. Hyperacidity is a hyper condition known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the tube connecting your mouth and stomach (esophagus). This acid reflux can irritate the coating of your esophagus. Most people can manage the discomfort of GERD with lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications.
It is caused by frequent acid reflux. When you swallow, a circular band of muscle around the bottom of your esophagus (lower oesophageal sphincter) relaxes to permit food and liquid to flow into your stomach. Then the sphincter closes over. If the sphincter relaxes unusually or weakens, stomach acid can flow back up into your esophagus. This constant reflex of acid irritates the lining of your esophagus, often causing it to become inflamed.
A burning feeling in your chest (heartburn), generally after eating, which might be worse at night, Epigastric heaviness and Chest pain, trouble swallowing, the reflex of food or sour liquid
When you have nighttime acid reflux, also experience:
Chronic cough, Laryngitis, New or worsening asthma
All symptoms are mild in hyperacidity.
In Ayurveda hyperacidity known as Amla-Pita and GERD are known as urdhvaga amlapita, caused by the aggravation of Pitta Dosha. When aggravated Kapha associate with pita dosha acid start moves upward in the esophagus. heartburn and epigastric heaviness with nausea universal symptoms of amlapita.

In this competitive era, where each and everyone wants to achieve the highest goal. Competition is increasing day by day to fight the world.
