Basically, the word “frigidity” is used to define the presence of very little amount of sexual initiation and response. It is applicable to both the genders, but it is found to be more prevalent in women.

Frigidity can be caused by a number of factors, types of which include physiological, psychological, or even pathological factors. The factors are listed as follows:


  • Anxiety/fear/depression
  • Sexual abuse in the past
  • Conflict between partners
  • Guilt


  • Pregnancy
  • Menstrual cycles
  • Lactation
  • Postnatal period
  • Menopause
  • Birth control pills
  • Hormonesfrigidity-home remedies

These are not all in the list of factors that cause Frigidity. As any problem would have, Frigidity is associated with symptoms of its own. This can be simply summarized in the fact that a person suffering from Frigidity loses interest in making love with his/her partner and cannot enjoy even if the partner is a real turn on.

From the Ayurvedic point of view, there exists an Ayurvedic method of treatment that can help solve this problem through a series of step. The treatment occurs in three stages, these are:  the intake of digestive herbs that help improve the overall health of a person, elimination of any toxic substances present in the body and lastly, provision of a useful energy drink or rather “tonic” that may help revitalize. Other common methods preferred by many today include herbal treatments and spiritual advice.

Some simple lifestyle tips can really improve the standard of health and prevent the chances of “frigidity” to ever happen. These range from simple diet related tips to lifestyle-related advice. When talking about diet, whole wheat flour and brown rice are preferred to their unhealthy counterparts that are white flour and white rice. Increasing the intake of fresh fruits, and some dry fruits such as pistachios, raisins and figs could really help. As surprising as it may sound, spices are known to be a sex drive booster, and so one would want to increase the usage of spices some of which are sage, anise, parsley and fennel.

Changing your lifestyle isn’t easy, for anyone. But one can avoid the worst by taking the simplest of precautionary measures such as avoiding smoking, alcohol and high caffeine drinks such as coffee and tea. A massage with sesame oil will prove really effective as it results in nerve stimulation and the reviving of muscular robustness.

People usually have to go out of their homes and then pay for some new remedy to prevent illnesses or problems, but it turns out, that there a number of home remedies (for frigidity) that one can take up right from their home. A few of these are:

  1. Mixing three tablespoons of banyan tree root (in powdered form) with half a cup of milk and drink.
  2. Five to six nights after the menstrual flow has stopped, one can add two teaspoons of powdered winter cherry (Ashwagandha) to a cup of milk and drink.
  3. Add one spoon of grated ginger to a cup of milk and then boil it. Heat at low intensity for 15 minutes. Have it every day either at the beginning or at the end of your day.
