Erectile Dysfunction Remedies

Erectile dysfunction is a sexual disorder wherein a man is unable to maintain an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse. There are many different causes of this condition. Erectile dysfunction is not a serious disorder, neither does it cause any harm to the body. However it can adversely affect self esteem and may even cause problems in personal relationships. It is essential for the partner to be supportive as added stress can also aggravate the erectile dysfunction.

Mostly, older males are prone to this condition. But it can occur in younger men as well. Stress arising from work, finances, relationships and family can contribute to erectile dysfunction. The good news is that this condition is not permanent and is likely to subside if corrective measures are taken. Doctors may prescribe certain oral medications for men who suffer from this disorder. Many also prefer to use natural remedies for erectile dysfunction.

In order to diagnose erectile dysfunction, the doctor is likely to perform certain tests to examine the flow of blood to the penis. This may be done through an ultrasound. If erectile dysfunction is present, the doctor will then proceed in determining the causes of the condition. In some cases, the cause could be physical. Certain medical conditions can affect the blood flow to the penis and lead to erectile dysfunction. Examples of such conditions include arteriosclerosis, diabetes and peyronie’s disease which leads to erectile tissue scarring. Intake of certain drugs can also lead to this disorder. Medications for high blood pressure, heart disease and depression can have an effect on erectile functioning. Deficiency of testosterone can also lead to reduced libido and erection loss. Certain neurological conditions such as paraplegia and stroke can affect the transmission of nerve signals to the penis. Trauma, radiation treatment and surgery in the pelvic area are also causes of erectile dysfunction. Anxiety, guilt and worry are all responsible for loss of sexual desire. 

Today there is a wide variety of drugs and medications that help in treating erectile dysfunction. It is important to opt for the medication that is right for you. It is advisable to consult a doctor about this. Many men prefer not to take commercial medications as they prefer natural medication for erectile dysfunction. Natural treatment for impotence and loss of libido involves making changes in one’s lifestyle. In case of heart disease or diabetes, it is important to focus on treating these conditions first. Alcohol intake must be restricted. One should also stop smoking as this affects erectile function. Regular exercise is essential to improve blood flow throughout the body. It is also necessary to get adequate sleep and rest. One of the most beneficial erectile dysfunction remedies is the herb gingko which serves as a natural anti-depressant and also improves blood flow to the pelvic area. Proper diet is also important in treatment of erectile dysfunction. Deficiencies of vitamin A and zinc are known to impair sexual functioning. In case one cannot derive adequate amounts of these nutrients through the diet, it is important to consult a doctor regarding the intake of supplements.

Alternative Cure for Impotence

Erectile dysfunction can take place anytime during a man's lifetime and is not always related to serious problems. Even simple triggers like emotional and physical stress, excess consumption of alcohol, or smoking may cause the disorder. However you will need to check for diabetes or heart related disorders, if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

It is a good idea to seek medical recommendations and undergo tests to clear all possible doubts. Moreover herbal treatments need to be verified by your physician for contradictions before you begin a herbal treatment for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

Herbal remedies are effective in solving the problem areas such as stress, worry, depression, etc. as these triggers contribute to a great extent in the failure to perform satisfactorily. Alternative treatments include aromatherapy, acupuncture, and deep tissue massage. Herbs also help to improve blood circulation and promote the flow of blood to the penis. Some common herbs include Winter cherry or Asian Ginseng, Tongkat Ali, Ginkgo Biloba etc. These herbs are easily available as processed capsules and are often mentioned as sexual enhancement agents due to the aphrodisiacal qualities of the herbs. Please remember, since nearly all unconventional and complementary treatments are not regulated, it is not always easy to know the dosage of herbal treatments and the duration of treatment.
