Nightfall is a very harmless, though unfortunate condition that many men suffer from. This is a condition in which the male genitalia expresses discharge of semen, while the male is still asleep. In Ayurvedic texts, it is referred to as ‘swapandosha’. According to modern science, there is nothing wrong or extraordinary with nightfall. In fact, it is a part of the natural bodily processes and it may happen only due to male hormones. Young men, in the age range of 18 to 30 years are most usually afflicted with this condition.

What Does Ayurveda Say?

According to the Ayurvedic text of Charak Samhita, the male genitalia secretes semen due to eight main causes. These causes are dependent on the kind of diet the person consumes, visual pleasures and sexual desires evoked by various stimulation. Ayurvedic doctors believe that a lot of modern changes in our diet and lifestyle may be responsible for nightfall. Tension, an overexposure to the female body, increased sexual drives, stress and sexual relations at a much younger age are also contributing factors. Ayurvedic medication can help with nightfall treatment to a large extent. However, you may need to also make some changes to your lifestyle and diet.
