Dear Sir, I am KA from Pakistan. 19 year old. I masterbate daily since 6 years, due to which my penis become small and not erect easily. Kindly tell homeopathic treatment to stop side effects of masterbation.
First, the spelling is ‘masturbate’ not ‘masterbate’ and ‘masturbation’ not ‘masterbation’. Sorry, but the editor in me is unable to stop himself from doing this!
Masturbation by itself does not cause any side effects and all medical studies done so far point in that direction. In fact there are many studies which have shown that masturbation can have its own health benefits. You can refer PubMed to find all the relevant studies about the effects of masturbation.
However, just like anything else, excess of anything can be bad. Sugar might be sweet but excess of it can be very bad for our system. Same with salt or anything else. There has to be some balance in our life and activities. Excessive focus on any aspect of life is a sign of a underlying disorder. It can at times lead to physical problems but can also lead to anxiety disorders.
Some of the most common side effects of excessive masturbation are
Social Withdrawal due to masturbation
People at times become addicted to pornography and masturbation so much that they do not like to socialise. They prefer to remain within the confines of their rooms and show signs of social withdrawal, where they do not wish to spend time with friends and family. It can coexist with anxiety-depression disorder.
This can lead to poor concentration, resulting in poor memory/retention and poor academic performance.
A study done in Iran showed that thumb-sucking, phobias, obsessive work, stress disorder, motor tics, separation anxiety, GAD, conduct disorder and ODD were associated with masturbation, significantly (p<0.05).(1)
There is another research that shows that while masturbation increases Dopamine levels in brain but the rise in levels of Prolactin/Oxytocin is about 400% less compared to intercourse. Excessive masturbation, like frequently using internet porn, may desensitise you to dopamine, and make usually pleasurable activities seem less rewarding. It can also make your body to be in a chronic stress state. (2)
Physical symptoms due to masturbation
At times excessive masturbation can lead to nutritional deficiencies. This can happen due to two reasons.
Poor dietary intake associated with anxiety, depression and social withdrawal.
Second reason could be relative nutritional deficiency due to nutrition loss associated with seminal loss.
Semen comprises of 3% zinc, 3% copper, .9% magnesium and .09% calcium. It also has trace quantity of Vitamin B12. A 1992 World Health Organization report described normal human semen as having a volume of 2 ml or greater with sperm concentration of 20×106 spermatozoa/ml or more, sperm count of 40×106 spermatozoa per ejaculate or more. That is 40 million sperms 🙂 This can vary between 40 to 300 million/ml
So excessive masturbation may lead to some relative nutritional deficiency if your diet is very poor in micro-nutrients like zinc and copper.
There are some misconceptions too. Like people believe that masturbation leads to impotence, or premature ejaculation or the penis becomes small or it leads to poor intelligence and poor memory. None of these are medically verified and if you have these issues, please consult a doctor to rectify these instead of blaming masturbation alone.
Too much masturbation may lead to loss of libido (psychological) and loss of sensitivity (physiological), though what is ‘too much’ will vary from person to person.
My advice to you is to reduce masturbation and consult a qualified doctor in person.
Homeopathy medicines for side effects of masturbation
In homeopathy, there are dozens of medicines like Acid phos., Caladium, Agnus castus, Selenium, Thuja, Medorrhinum, Origanum, Platina, China, Lachesis, Lycopodium, Staphysagria, Bufo, Hyoscyamus, Zincum met etc., which can help with your sexual problems. However, you will need to consult a professional homeopath in person to find out which remedy suits you best.
Also, a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, ample water intake, and regular exercise can also help reduce any physical complaints or mental distress that you feel.
I hope you will find information about side effects of masturbation and their homeopathic treatment, given on these pages, useful. Please consult a general physician or a homeopath in person.
