Fast Therapy for Female Sterility
A short fast of 2 or 3 days should be undertaken at normal intervals by women who are not capable to bear children. The bowels should be cleansed by a lukewarm water enema during the period of fasting and afterwards when required. This will have an advantageous effect not only on the digestive system but also on the surrounding organs of the urinary and genital system.
Diet Therapy for Female Sterility
Diet is the most vital aspect in the treatment of sterility. It should consist of three basic health building food groups namely (i) seeds, nuts and grains, (ii) vegetables and (iii) fruits. These foods should be supplemented with milk, vegetable oils and honey. The best way to take milk is in its soured form that is curd and cottage cheese. Each food group should more or less form the bulk of one of 3 meals. The daily menu of a health building and vitalising diet may be on the following lines:
Too much of fat, spicy foods, strong white sugar, white flour, refined cereals, tea, coffee, flesh foods, greasy or fried foods should all be avoided.
Certain nutrients, in particular vitamin C and E and zinc have been found helpful in some cases of sterility.
Home Remedies for Female Sterility
Certain remedies have also been found functional in the treatment of female sterility where there are no organic defects or congenital deformities.
1. One such therapy is a tender root of the banyan tree. These roots should be dried in the shade and finally powdered. This powder should be mixed 5 times their weight with milk and taken at night for 3 consecutive nights after the monthly periods are over. No other food should be taken with this. It should be repeated after the completion of menstrual cycle every month till conception takes place.
2. An infusion of the fresh tender leaves of jambul fruit (Jamun) taken with honey or buttermilk, is an excellent medication for sterility and miscarriage due to ovarian or endometrium functional disorders. The leaves most probably encourage the secretion of progesterone hormone and help the absorption of vitamin E.
3. The eggplant is also helpful in overcoming functional sterility. Cooked tender eggplants should be eaten with buttermilk everyday for a month or 2 for this purpose. It increases the capacity to take up vitamin E and stimulate the secretion of progesterone.

Mud packs may be applied to the abdomen and sexual organs.
