Natural Ayurvedic Treatments for Oligospermia
Texts of Ayurveda, the ancient medical science of India, recommend various natural treatments for oligospermia. These are in the form of diet, lifestyle changes and herbs.
The following foods can be included in regular diet to boost sperm count and motility.
Which foods to avoid:
Avoid mustard seeds, water stored in plastic bottles, fast foods and too much of sweets
An optimum weight should be maintained to keep the sperm production up. Healthy diet and exercises help to manage body weight. A daily brisk walk for 45 minutes help to improve blood circulation and burns calories. Never lift heavy weights. Make it a point to bask in early morning sun light to get vitamin D. You can apply sesame oil on body to enhance the absorption. Practice Pranayama and meditation to ward off stress as stress is also a major cause for low sperm count.
Use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs like marijuana can cause low sperm count. These have to be avoided at any cost to keep the fertility up.
Do not ejaculate too frequently. This leads to shukra kshaya or loss of sperms. Also do not use artificial lubricants. These may kill sperms.

Herbs like ashwagandha, shatavari, vidarikanda, kapikacchu (mucuna), gokshura, kokilaksha etc help to boost sperm count.
