Date :28-Jul-2018

Male infertility issues are as common as that of female infertility, if not more. With the drastic changes in lifestyle, increasing pollution and dietary imbalance... don’t be shocked if you actually end up seeing infertility taking a gruesome shape in the near future. Worldwide reports suggest that forty percent of infertility diagnosis is because of male infertility and as many as 2% of all men reveal suboptimal sperm parameters. It may be one or a combination of poor sperm motility, low sperm concentration or abnormal morphology. The latest reports suggest that 50% is the jump in infertility in urban India since 1990. As far as male infertility rates are concerned, 10% of young males have severe defects in sperm quality, quantity and production, as well as 3% of male infertility, is due to chromosomal abnormalities. Nearly 90 million Indians suffer from erectile dysfunction. Meanwhile, there is a 25 to 30% growth rate in the infertility sector in India.

Methods for men to optimize their fertility?

On top of India’s rising male infertility problem, comes the latest Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) survey which is published in Indian Journal of Community Medicine, reveals that Indian public sector hospitals are ill-equipped to treat infertility. Meanwhile, common people cannot afford the cost of several assisted reproductive technologies (ART) that have been introduced lately even though the cost of ART services in India is very low as compared to other developed countries.

So is there a way out? Yes, there is. Various complimentary medicines and other holistic therapies, along with regular yoga practice are proven to be effective to enhance the reproductive health of men to produce a successful pregnancy. Yoga is helpful in decreasing anxiety and stress, perk up autonomic functions by triggering neurohormonal mechanisms by the containment of sympathetic activity, and even, today, several reports suggested regular yoga practice from childhood is helpful for reproductive health. While most people connect the yoga asanas (postures) as a major aspect of the discipline, this is actually only most superficial feature in the ocean of Yoga science. There are many different branches of yoga available which include hatha, karma, mantra, jnana bhakti and rajo yoga.

Although there is a momentous ‘spiritual’ side to the yoga practice, the supposed ‘superficial’ asanas, breathing exercises, and meditation help to create a healthier mind and body. There are several yoga asanas such as Dhanur Asana (Bow pose), Hal Asana (Plough pose), Paschimottan Asana (Seated forward bend) and Bhujang Asana (Cobra Pose) that can benefit the sacral chakra and this is thought to treat male infertility.

Scientific studies reveal Yoga in the improvement of reproductive functions

There are a number of different benefits that your body can experience from performing yoga asanas. It helps to increase the energy flow through your body by performing these poses, which improves the function of the reproductive and endocrine system. There are several reports that reveal that yoga practitioners neuroendocrine axis get altered which results in beneficial changes in reproductive functions. Studies have established a decrease in urinary excretion of aldosterone and catecholamines, a reduction in luteinizing hormone levels and serum testosterone and an increase in cortisol excretion, indicating optimal changes in hormones. Diseases of the pelvic area in men are often related to blocks in the second chakra, which can be connected to physical or sexual issues and overall reduction in passion for life. This is also the region that carries intimate emotions, as well as pain and grief.  Compression in postures such as the Locust and Yoga Mudra can flush out the prostate, bringing in Prana and pure blood and develop the tone. Pranayama practiced in conjunction with the postures provides optimum benefits. Practicing moola bandha has been associated with relieving spermatorrhea, enhancing awareness of genital arousal sensation and controlling testosterone secretion. This may be a helpful adjunct for improving sexual desire and arousal.

Yoga can quash some of the effects of anxiety and stress by modifying the activity of the sympathetic nervous system and increasing the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system, which controls internal functions, including the reproductive organs. Yoga practitioners believe that it is possible to learn to lighten up your pelvic organs and reduce muscular tension and resulting in increased blood flow.
