Premature ejaculation is a condition in which a male ejaculates prior to, at the time of, or just after penetration. Here ejaculation occurs before the person wants to; hence he has no control over it. In some cases this problem gets resolved on its own, without the aid of medicinal purposes, but this is very rare. Premature ejaculation results in unsatisfactory sexual experience for both partners, which increases anxiety and further aggravates the problem. At some point in his life, every man is affected by premature ejaculation, mainly because of anxiety, guilt or depression. Also hormonal problems, injury or side effect of medicine can cause this male sexual dysfunction. Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. Still occasional premature ejaculation may not be a cause of concern.
Men with premature ejaculation have low level of serotonin in the synapses, causing them to climax soon after sexual activity with minimal penile stimulation. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, a chemical messenger that carries, boosts and modulates signal between nerve cells in the brain and nervous system. Neurons then pass these signals to other neurons through synapse. Studies have shown that inadequate levels of serotonin in the synapses lead to premature ejaculation.
Again premature ejaculation is not a modern disease and has been known for about many centuries, even in ancient India this problem was known amongst various Kings. To solve the problem, the ayurvedic practitioners found its cause, which was because of an imbalance of a vital energy called vata. Through herbal treatments the balance of vata could be maintained. This applies even today.
Vata balancing foods, which are very low in cholesterol, should be taken for premature ejaculation treatment. Crumbled almonds in a glass of milk should be consumed twice a day. Meditation was also recommended, as it rids the body of negative emotions, making us less anxious and controlling our ejaculation a little more effectively by mind alone. Again Yoga positions as Shoulder Stand (Sarvang Asana), The Plough (Hala Asana), and The Fish (Matsya Asana) are believed to be beneficial in checking premature ejaculation. Ayurvedic practioners also recommend restraint in sexual activities, especially less masturbation. They also speak of the food to be consumed to control premature ejaculation. Foods as fresh fruits (especially banana), nuts, ginger, lettuce, cereals, fish, shellfish, honey and vegetables especially fennel, celery and onions should be consumed. Tea, coffee, denatured foods, processed foods and foods which contain high amounts of white sugar and white flour should be avoided. Smoking and alcohol should also be avoided.
Preferred medicine is Ayurveda for premature ejaculation over English medicine. In the latter the diseases or symptoms get treated, while in the former it is the individual who is treated.
