Sex is given a significant importance in Ayurveda. In fact, it’s among the the three fundamental aspects of life (the other two being diet and rest) which are responsible for our psychological and physical wellbeing. Here are some of the health benefits that come with having an active and disciplined sex life.
Good memory: Sex is connected to the development of the hippocampus – the area of the brain that controls feelings, memory, and the nervous system. Sexually dynamic individuals are more inclined to have a superior memory.
Intelligence: Games like chess, sudoku and scrabble aren’t the only intelligence enhancing methods anymore. According to Ayurveda, a healthy sex life can also improves your cognitive functions.
Long life: It is said that indulging in regular sexual intercourse improves immune function, thereby increasing longevity. Sex is not only an exercise but also a sign of an intimate relationship – both of which improve health and extend one’s life span.
Strength and slow aging: Each time you achieve an orgasm, there’s an increase in the hormone DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone). DHEA can help boost your immune system, repair tissue, and even work as an energizer. This means that when sex is satisfying, you can benefit from greater strength and also reverse the effects of aging.
As you can see, sex improves your health and acuity of the sense organs. However, anything in excess can prove to be detrimental. This holds true for sex as well.
Ayurveda is very clear that sex is not meant to be performed indiscriminately. Improper sexual intercourse can lead to dizziness, exhaustion, loss of strength, depletion of dhatus, and, in extreme cases, even premature death. However, when it’s done in a disciplined and controlled manner, physical intimacy can help maintain bodily doshas and manasika doshas.
