Topic: Ayurvedic approach to Fertility
Abstract: Ayurveda is the divine life of science since time immemorial. Ayurveda classics and texts have mentioned certain concepts about ways of supporting and promoting pregnancy. Ayurveda emphasizes the preconception period as a vast time period and not just the pregnancy period itself. The preconception time offers a golden opportunity to provide the best nourishment and care to garbhini ( lady who's planning to conceive) and the future child. In Ayurveda, it is described that there are four essential components that must work together optimally—timing (ritu), the field/place (shetra), fluids and nutrition (ambu), and the seed (bija).Balanced and optimal status of all are essential conditions required for fertility.
