Herbal Remedies for Dhat Syndrome – Symptoms & Ayurvedic Treatment
Dhat Syndrome: Overview
Dhat syndrome refers to a ‘semen-loss’ related physical and psychological distress which is typically experienced by men in the Indian subcontinent region, including India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Bangladesh.
Dhat syndrome is also called ‘Dhatu dosha,’ because of the origin of the word ‘Dhat’ from the Sanskrit word ‘Dhatu’ which means ‘elixir of the body.’ The condition was first described by Dr Narendra Wig in the year 1960.
The men affected by Dhat syndrome suffer from premature ejaculation or impotence. They undergo pangs of anxiety and sexual dysfunction because of the belief that they are passing semen in urine, in the form of some whitish fluid or whitish particles.
The anxiety over the believed loss of semen either during urination, or through nocturnal emissions and masturbation results in a sense of depression in the affected individuals because the fear of semen loss is very strong in the Indian subcontinent.
Though Dhat syndrome is basically a culture-bound condition which generally affects young men from a rural background or of a lower socio-economic status — in the Indian subcontinent, it may also, in some cases, affect the women of the region. In addition, it may also be prevalent in some other cultures across the world.
Although there is no known organic cause behind the occurrence of Dhat syndrome, the condition may be linked to some other post-orgasmic disorders, like postorgasmic illness syndrome (POIS) and post-coital tristesse (PCT).
