Ayurveda & Premature Ejaculation: Shukraghata Vata

The three humors in Ayurveda and the five great elements

The three humors in Ayurveda and the five great elements

Ayurveda is an ancient form of medicine that originated in India. Ayurveda is an ancient Sanskrit word which means knowledge of life. It is still most commonly practiced in India and Sri Lanka, but is becoming more and more popular all over the world as a form of maintaining good health. The ayurvedic term for PE is Shukraghata Vata.

As you can see in the graphic on the right side, vata (or vatha) is one of the three humors in Ayurveda. Now when you have PE, your vata is aggravated.

In ayurvedic medicine it is believed that disorders or problems shouldn’t be just treated with medicine. Instead, an ayurvedic practitioner will first do a diagnosis, and then prescribe a plan of treatment which includes herbal remedies, dietary recommendations, lifestyle changes, specific yoga practice (positions or breathing techniques), certain kinds of massages with specific massage oils and so on.

Treating the individual, not the disease

While in Western medicine the diseases or symptoms get treated, in Ayurvedic medicine it’s the individual that’s treated. That’s why there isn’t really a “herb for PE”, but rather there are specific treatment plants for each individual which has PE. However, you can even get some benefit from such a general treatment.

Ayurvedic Remedies for PE

Saffron-almond milk recipe:
Soak 10 almonds over night in water. On the next day, peel off the skin, and blend the almonds in a blender with 1 cup of cow hot milk (or crush them in hot cow milk) and add a little bit of saffron, ginger and cardamon to it. Drink this every morning.

Green Onion Seeds:
Add one teaspoon of green onion seeds into a glass of water and stirr thoroughly. Drink before every meal.

You will need to find these ayurvedic herbs, and then mix them in equal parts. When you have mixed them, take half a teaspoon and add it into a glass of warm goat milk, and drink this. You can often find goat milk in organic food stores.

Ayurvedic herbs for premature ejaculation

Medicinal prescriptions for PE are generally called Stambhaka. Among them are Ashwagandha Churna, Jatiphala (Myristica fragrans), Speman tablet (Himalaya Drugs,

Asparagus (safed musli), garlic and drumstick are the most commonly prescribed herbal remedies for PE in Ayurveda.

    I have gotten an Ayurvedic massage and that was great. But it didn’t help me to last any longer…

      Yep, an Ayurvedic massage in itself isn’t meant to help about PE. Also, keep in mind that all these ayurvedic remedies for PE are just something you can do in addition to other things – it’s just something you can add to your arsenal of weapons. I don’t think it’s crucially important, but it surely helps to stack the odds a bit more in your favor.

    How much does this stuff cost?

    • Timothy Turner May 8, 2013, 3:28 pm

      @Alfonso: it really depends, you can actually get most of it very cheap (couple of dollars), and then there are premium brands that charge for fancy words+packaging. i don’t think the stuff that’s inside is actually that much different, so I’d go with the cheap version (of course, do your own research and decide what you think is best for you).

    I find that I actually last a bit longer when I’m drunk (a bit).

  • Timothy Turner May 13, 2013, 4:18 pm

    @Diego: Yes, most men last longer when they’ve had a glass. Also, I wouldn’t recommend following any of these guidelines isolated from an actual Ayurvedic treatment, especially the dietary recommendations. So don’t start living on nuts and honey yet 😉

  • Stan May 22, 2013, 2:37 pm

    I don’t think this stuff really works.

    • Timothy Turner May 31, 2013, 3:11 am

      @Stan: No need to do this if you don’t believe in it, there are many other options 🙂
