Keywords:Decade-wise rasayana, Sharangadhara Samhita, Female reproductive health, Rasadi dhatus, Rasayana, Dhatu utpatti
The existence of life on Earth is sustained by the act of reproduction. The ultimate blessing for a couple in their lifetime is to give birth to a healthy progeny, which is only possible by the union of healthy beeja in the favorable conditions of Ritu, kshetra and ambhu. Female reproductive health plays a key role in all these four factors. Good reproductive health ensures a female to have a satisfactory and safe sexual life both physically and mentally. Rasayana prayoga during the course of dhatu utpatti in balya and madhyamavastha helps to attain the rasadi dhatu at its supreme quality. Acharya Sharangadhara quotes that the development of certain bodily characteristics attained in its pinnacle in every decade of life, starts to decline gradually after that certain period of years naturally. Rasayana therapy administered in each reproductive stage of female life may improve her reproductive health qualitatively which intern helps them to prevent various common reproductive aliments from balyatara avastha (pre-menarche) to Jara (complications after menopause). In this article, an attempt is made to collect and analyze the relevant facts from Samhitas, contemporary textbooks and e-resources and tried to conceptualize the significance of administering decade-wise Rasayana in female for improving their reproductive health.
