In the sexual act we bring together the deepest tissue level of our bodies. This allows reproduction to occur. It can also allow pathogens to be transmitted directly to our inner most tissues, which would otherwise be fought off by the immune system. The greater the number of sexual partners we have, the greater the exposure.
Syphilis is a serious, sexually transmitted, contagious disease with a slow development. It may be acquired or inherited. It is usually acquired through sexual intercourse, however other causes such as infected blood transfusion are also possible. General debility, rickets, osteoporosis, and dyspepsia are some of the complications. Ayurveda believes that sexual diseases result as a consequence of decreased immunity, which allows the pathogens to exist within the bodies and cause a number of complications.
Ayurvedic treatment involves increasing the immunity level, which then allows the body to naturally kill the pathogens and regenerate damaged tissues.
