Ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation

Today we’ll explore the ancient wisdom taken from Ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation. If conventional methods are failing you, then you’ve wound up in the right place.

The western attitude toward premature ejaculation

For those of us raised in the West, sexual topics are considered taboo. This is slowly changing. But generally speaking, we still don’t talk about sex. We don’t ask for help with sexual problems. And we certainly don’t talk openly about premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. These topics are taboo. And highly embarrassing.

Men suffering from premature ejaculation are encouraged to pursue silly methods. They are sold and quick and easy, highly medicalized options to cure premature ejaculation and prolong sexual stamina. We see all sorts of “remedies” from topical creams, numbing creams, layered condoms, to even antidepressant medications.

These things ended up robbing them of experiencing any semen retention benefits, which are boundless when a man is able to fully control his ejaculation. Not only are these able to stop premature ejaculation, they have the power to choose whether to ejaculate at all. These benefits come only from ejaculation control training.

But the ancient Indians, whom this article will be focusing upon, didn’t consider sexual topics taboo or embarrassing. In fact, the Indian tradition of Ayurveda and ayurvedic medicines have a whole branch purely dedicated to sex. And it is from this branch I’m taking the 7 rejuvenating herbs below, and the 6 bonus lifestyle tips that I’m also going to give to you.

But first, let’s find out a bit about what the alternative medicine of Ayurveda actually is.

What is ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation?

Ayurveda comes directly from Indian traditions. This incredible, holistic approach to health involves diet, lifestyle, specific practices, and herbs. 

Being a tantric men’s coach, I particularly like Ayurveda. I call upon its principles regularly with my clients. This is because it goes hand in hand with yoga and tantra. The three are very complementary to one another.

If you are into yoga and alternative healing, you will probably have heard of the three doshas. Ayurveda identifies three main doshas or body types. These are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha various Ayurvedic treatments are prescribed according to your individual type. Diet is highly important, and the most appropriate diet depends on your dosha type. And sometimes fasting is recommended to get results.

And what about ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation? 

Well, the sexual branch of Ayurveda is less well-known. Unless you have studied Ayurveda in-depth, you probably won’t have heard of it. It is called Varsha/Vajikarana Chikitsa. This translates to Aphrodisiac Therapy. To this day, it is still very much a vital part of the overall science of Ayurveda. It covers sexual health, sexual dysfunctions, fertility, and virility. But, crucially for today’s discussion, it also provides premature ejaculation treatment and can even cure premature ejaculation.

While most Western medicine doctors would shrug their shoulders and throw you a pill, the ancient Indians had a lot to say about premature ejaculation. But their deep-rooted wisdom in treating premature ejaculation is largely unknown and ignored.

This is rather unfortunate. Ayurvedic medicine for attaining a penile erection and preventing early ejaculation can actually cure the problem. And this is much better than any temporary ‘fix’ Western medicine can throw at it. It is a real pity that this ancient wisdom is largely cast aside. Hence my decision to try and change that by writing this article!

Defining premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is classified as orgasm and ejaculation within a couple of minutes of penetration. Often, it occurs with minimal sexual stimulation. However, the length of time that different men with PE can last for varies. Some men can hold their ejaculation for the entire 2-3 minutes. Others can last only a few seconds.

The problem is deeply debilitating. It impacts a man’s sense of masculinity. Hence his whole experience of life is altered. A man with severe PE usually lacks confidence, especially sexual confidence. This can seep over into his female partner. She may begin to believe that she is doing something wrong. PE is frustrating and painful for the woman, too.

Mismatched sexual desire/stamina is terrible for relationships and sexual satisfaction for both partners. It causes pain and resentment. When chronic, it can lead to huge arguments. Many couples even break up for this reason.

Hence it’s an important issue to solve. And through the Ayurvedic treatment of premature ejaculation, we can do just that.

What is the best ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation?

Here are my 7 best ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation:

  1. Ashwagandha
  2. Soaked almonds with almond milk, ginger, and cardamom, and asparagus powder
  3. Shatavari
  4. Vajikkarana herbs
  5. Kapikachua
  6. Panchakarma
  7. Rayaana Vati property blend

Let’s start by taking 7 ayurvedic herbs that can be used as premature ejaculation treatment. Ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation only uses natural remedies, which is the same for most holistic treatments.

1. Ashwagandha KSM 66

Ashwagandha KSM 66
Ashwagandha is an adaptogen. This means that it helps to restore hormonal balance in the body. In men specifically, it can contribute to healthy testosterone levels. On the other hand, low testosterone is a large factor in uncontrolled ejaculation. So in this way, ashwagandha helps to both control ejaculation as well as delay ejaculation during the sexual act.

Whatsmore, ashwagandha works on more than one level. Not only does it treat premature ejaculation, but it is also known to help with erectile dysfunction. This is when a man cannot get an erection at all. Often these two dysfunctions will happen together, along with a large dose of sexual performance anxiety. And as soon as there is anxiety, blood flow to the penis and sexual organs are cut off, and the problem becomes even worse. Luckily, ashwagandha helps with anxiety, too!

It is most often taken at night, one teaspoon, just before bedtime. But you can take it at any time of day to experience benefits.

2. Soaked almonds with almond milk, ginger, cardamom, saffron, and asparagus powder

Almonds are high in vitamin E, which helps to build testosterone. For this reason, ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation uses them frequently to remedy male sexual dysfunction. Here’s how you can treat premature ejaculation with home remedies using natural ingredients.


  • 10 almonds
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • Ginger powder
  • Cardamom powder
  • Saffron
  • Asparagus powder


  1. Soak 10 almonds overnight in water. In the morning, peel the skins, and crush them into a fine powder. 
  2. In the morning, unpeel them and place them in a blender. Next, add 1 cup of hot almond milk to the blend.
  3. Add a pinch of ginger powder, cardamom powder, and asparagus powder.
  4. Finally, add a pinch of saffron, a mild aphrodisiac. 
  5. Drink this mixture every morning to help improve libido.

3. Shatavari Powder

Shatavari Powder
Alongside ashwagandha, Shatavari is also an ayurvedic herb, with adaptogenic plant extracts which have stress relieving properties. Like ashwagandha, it can help with establishing healthy hormone levels in males and females.

Whether you have too much or too little of a certain hormone (like testosterone), Shatavari will help to either increase or boost the levels in the body.

Shatavari usually comes in powder form and is harder to find than ashwagandha. But if you can get your hands on some, it will definitely be worth it! Take one teaspoon twice daily dissolved in water.

4. Vajikarana herbs

Vajikarana herbs

Vajikarana is the branch of Ayurveda dedicated solely to sexual function. There are hundreds of different formulations which are used for Vajikarana. One common blend is called the Shukra Stambhak and is especially useful for premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. It uses a variety of herbs for all kinds of sexual dysfunction.


Boost your confidence, master your sexuality, and find your purpose.

So you can reignite the passion in your relationship or attract your perfect woman.

Its superstars for premature ejaculation are Safed Musli and cassia cinnamon.

Safed Musli is a proven aphrodisiac and has also been shown in some studies to increase sperm. The therapeutic dose is up to 2g a day. And it can be taken in pill or powder form.

cassia cinnamon
Cassia cinnamon is not the sweet kind of cinnamon commonly used in food and cooking. It isn’t so easy to find, but has anti inflammatory properties and is effective in the management of premature ejaculation. However, these herbal medicines can help you reach sexual arousal and maintain an erection.

5. Kapikachua Mucuna

Kapikachua Mucuna

Kapikachu is another ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation that sits at the very top of the list. Also known as mucuna pruriens, it stimulates the release of dopamine in the brain. This is linked to our desire and reward system. Hence this natural substance is a strong aphrodisiac.

A teaspoon of kapikachua boiled in water creates sexual health and sex life overall.

6. Panchakarma Treatment

Panchakarma Treatment
Panchakarma is from the yogic system. It consists of cleansing practices that rid the body of toxins. Thus, it brings vitality and vigor even for those with lifelong premature ejaculation.

These practices are called Shodanas, and there are 5 of them:

  • Vamana (therapeutic vomiting)
  • Virechan (purgation)
  • Basti (enema)
  • Nasya (elimination of toxins through the nose)
  • Rakta moksha: detoxification of the blood

I do not advise that you try and do any of these practices by yourself. They must be taught and supervised by a trained practitioner. But if you manage to find a good clinic near you that does panchakarma treatments, it can go a long way in healing premature ejaculation.

7. Rasyaana Vati property blend

Rasyaana Vati property blend

This is a specific blend of the most potent herbs when ejaculation occurs early. Including herbs I have already mentioned, like Ashwagandha and Shatavari, it also contains some newcomers to the list, such as Shilajit.

I highly recommend this concoction if you can afford it and find it. It will give you more sexual stamina and greater overall health, which is one of the greatest factors responsible for ejaculation time. 

6 bonus lifestyle tips from ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation

Employing ayurvedic medicine when premature ejaculation occurs is a holistic approach to treating this sexual problem. This means it deals with all of the root causes and external factors causing the dysfunction.

One of those causes is your lifestyle. And in our high-stress, high-toxin 21st Century world, this is a huge factor.

The western approach to treatment always revolves around a pill to take. But when it comes to premature ejaculation, Ayurveda also resolves to look at behaviors that may be causing harm. So, we’ll look at 5 aspects of lifestyle that ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation considers highly important.

1. Ditch the drink

The first is alcohol.

Drinking alcohol does not contribute to well-being. Alcohol is a toxin— a poison. It raises inflammation in the body and disturbs sleep. On top of this, it also directly affects on erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation

When intoxicated, you have much less control over your body once sexual penetration begins. You are sure to have experienced this during your younger years. It is common for things down there not to ‘work’ whilst drunk. For someone who is suffering from premature ejaculation, even a small amount of alcohol, less than one unit, will have a negative effect. 

To bring back heightened sensitivity as well as your masculine power during sexual intercourse— perhaps it’s time to stop drinking altogether.

2. Quit smoking

The second is smoking.

Smoking clogs arteries and therefore inhibits blood circulation. 

This is definitely not what we want when looking to cure PE and ED. On another note, smokers have a low sperm count compared to non-smokers. Maintaining an erection requires a strong flow of blood to the penis. A smoking habit will have the opposite effect. Need I say any more?

Even moderate use of alcohol and cigarettes may make it much more difficult to correct in the long run. For premature ejaculation, Ayurveda teaches that the best medicine is abstinence. 

This abstinence will also enhance your willpower, which is an integral part of the tantric path.

3. Take a break from sex and masturbation

The third lifestyle factor taken from ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation relates directly to sexuality.

The health benefits involved in taking a break from both masturbation and sex give your body’s internal workings a chance to reprogram and rewire. For example, if you continually engage in sexual situations and ejaculate quickly, you are reinforcing the neural pathway between sex and premature ejaculation.

Taking a break helps break the cycle via the reprogramming of those neural pathways. This is also known as neuroplasticity.

Abstaining from sex and masturbation is only while you address the physical and mental causes of PE. Ayurvedic treatment of premature ejaculation is very thorough and really has a well-rounded approach to this issue.

4. Address your stress

We just discussed sexual performance anxiety.

But generalized anxiety— along with stress, depression, and psychological factors— are some of the leading causes of premature ejaculation. They play a major role in the problem becoming chronic.

In its holistic approach, ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation considers addressing stress to be as important as taking herbs and supplements.

There is no quick pill that you can swallow to cure your stress. Lise is stressful, and stress is a part of life.

Meditation practice will not take away stressors, but it WILL help your body and mind to deal with them. So sit for 20 minutes a day, and watch the benefits unfold.

5. Take up a yoga practice

Since I’m a tantra yoga practitioner and teacher, I especially like this one. Yoga is the integration of mind, body, and breath. Therefore it is a powerful tool for stress management and maintenance of physical health. Both of these are key when it comes to premature ejaculation.

Any ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation that doesn’t come with a side dish of a physical practice would be incomplete. With yoga, you not only support yourself in releasing your stresses. You also hack your energy system. Healing premature ejaculation definitely requires a healthy body and free-flowing energy.

Tantra yoga for men is particularly helpful since it focuses on the chakra system and energy centers. It also helps with PE since it tones the pelvic floor, which is the aim of pelvic floor exercises for men. Also known as Kegels, these exercises alone help with ejaculation control. Combine them with a tantra yoga practice, and you’re onto a winner.

6. You are what you eat

Finally, none of the ayurvedic medicines would be complete without diet. Ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation prescribes a mainly vegetarian diet. You can follow this if you wish. If you choose to include meat in your diet, avoid processed meats, and make sure that all animal products are organic.

I left diet for last because I know how singular and difficult diet can be for some of us. I won’t be dogmatically barking at you with the best possible diet from ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation. This would be rigid, and rigidity only perpetuates stress. Stress is something we want less of, not more. So I will instead give you some food items to add or remove. This will support your progress with premature ejaculation.

What not to eat: foods that lead to weight gain, poor body image, and depression

Let’s start with what NOT to eat. Generally, anything that unbalances the body falls under this category, and is banned according to ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation:

  • Sugar
  • Processed carbohydrates
  • Seed and vegetable oils (e.g. canola oil, sunflower oil)
  • Gluten
  • Alcohol
  • Most grains
  • All processed foods

Not only do these foods harm your health, but they also lead to high insulin, fat storage, and weight gain. 

They can even lead to obesity. Two of the main causes of PE and ED are poor body image and depression. None of these foods help with either of these things. Especially if you are overweight, removing them from your diet can enormously impact your health and overall well-being.

What to eat: foods that strengthen blood flow and reduce inflammation

As for what to add to your diet, this includes natural aphrodisiac foods and polyphenol-rich, healing plant foods such as:

  • Bananas
  • Nuts
  • Lettuce
  • Fennel
  • Onion
  • Celery
  • Almonds
  • Honey
  • Cacao
  • Maca

Some ayurvedic recipes are treated as elixirs and use these ingredients. However, they are meant to be taken in regular increments, the same as medicine.

It’s up to you how you would like to address your diet. Personally, I think having a healthy diet can do more good than almost anything else. It definitely addresses some of the underlying causes that someone can have as a cause for their premature ejaculation.

Summary of the ancient science of ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation

So, those are my top methods for premature ejaculation that come from Ayurveda.

In this article, we’ve only skimmed the surface of what ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation can do. This thousands-year-old health system carries a wealth of intricate, accumulated knowledge. You could spend a lifetime investigating the possibilities.

Also, each ayurvedic doctor may have his/her own approach to the subject. The best approach is to research whether a natural, holistic way is possible. None of these ayurvedic treatments for premature ejaculation have lasting side effects and are generally safe to try. The risk-reward ratio is certainly in your favor.

Yes, ayurvedic medicine for premature ejaculation also works for erectile dysfunction. The same methods above will also help you to get an erection, as well as to maintain it.
