One very prevelant health problem is regarding women’s health especially, female infertility. Our modern life-style adversely affects the hypothalamus, a region of the brain, the seat of emotions, which regulates the nervous system and pituitary gland. When the hypothalamus does not communicate properly with the pituitary gland, both male and female infertility can be affected. Imbalance in the regulation of reproductive hormones by the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland or problems in the ovary can cause various menstrual and ovulation disorders. It is always preferable to treat these conditions with natural remedies because hormones do have number of side-effects.
One such natural remedy used widely in Ayurvedic treatments is Ashoka, also known as, Saraca indica. Translating to mean ‘without sorrow’, this herb offers a multitude of health benefits that can treat and prevent a variety of illnesses while boosting one’s health. It restores the the functions of hypothalamus, thus restoring HPO (Hupothalamus-Pitiutary-Ovarian) balance, a balance which is very critical in female reproductive health.
Ashoka is well-known for its beneficial effects on the female reproductive system.
Some of the important benefits of Ashoka/ Saraca indica include:
Boosts women’s health:
The properties of this herb have been used to boost women’s reproductive health since ancient times. It is known to strengthen the uterus and stimulate ovarian function. In some cases, it can also help treat infertility and be used to manage uterine problems such as endometriosis. All this is due ti its balancing effects on the hypothalamus.
Prevents diabetic complications:
An increased number of young adults are suffering from elevated levels of blood sugar and Type 2 diabetes. Not only is this condition detrimental to health in itself but can also result in a number of complications over time. The Saraca indica herb helps prevent the occurrence of this condition in the people susceptible and also manages it better if already present. The anti-oxidant properties reduce oxidative stress caused by elevated sugar levels which can further reduce the risk for diabetic complications to the heart and other organs. It also reduces the build-up of LDL cholesterol in the body reducing the risk of clogged arteries and associated ailments. And in women, diabetes can complicate ovulation and make menstrual cycles scanty, irregular or absent.
Toxins in the blood can result in a number of problems, especially skin disorders. Blemishes, rashes and even skin allergies can be caused by toxins in the body. Ashoka works wonders as a blood purifier and helps the body get rid of unwanted toxins thereby reducing their harmful effects. Skin conditions have been known to witness a marked decrease with regular use of this herb. The anti-bacterial properties found here further speed up treatment and also help with skin infections.
