Erectile dysfunction is a sexual condition that has troubled men from ancient times. And before the advent of the vast research in medical science and the treatment of this condition using tablets and surgery, natural methods for the treatment of this condition were prevalent.
Let’s have a look at the natural methods of erectile dysfunction treatment:
Ginkgo is one of the oldest plants found on the earth, it is a native to the country China. It has many meditational uses and one of its benefits includes the improvement of blood circulation. A person who consumes Ginkgo experiences better blood circulation in their body and the major symptom of erectile dysfunction is a lack of adequate blood flow towards the penis. Ginkgo is thus a natural and plant-based medication that can be used for the treatment of erectile.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest treatments for erectile dysfunction. Many people have reported that their condition has improved after using the method of acupuncture for their treatment. But as piercing needles in their body parts are not everyone’s cup of tea, this method of treatment is not as comfortable as modern methods of treatments such as vacuum pumps and popping a Sildenafil citrate tablet.
Various Fruits and Vegetables
Adding healthy fruits and vegetables to your diet will keep you healthy, but there are some vegetables such as spinach and carrots that have been reported to give you the benefits of better sexual health. Spinach is full of magnesium and folic acid which boosts the level of testosterone in men while carrots improve male fertility and prevent erectile dysfunction.
Apples contain an active component in their peels which prevents prostate cancer in men, which is one of the common causes of erectile dysfunction. Avocado boosts the levels of testosterone in the male body.
Spicy foods, especially bell peppers, can increase the levels of testosterone in men and promote sexual desire. Grapes and berries are also known for promoting better sexual health in men.
Apart from fruits and vegetable beverages that contain caffeine such as coffee, tea and food items such as chocolates too have been proved to be effective in the prevention and treatment of erectile dysfunction as they relax the arteries of the penile muscles and improve blood circulation.
Apart from dietary additions, various lifestyle changes can be made which have been proven to improve the condition of erectile dysfunction in men.
One of the leading causes of erectile dysfunction in men (especially men below the age of 40) is obesity and excessive body weight. Various diseases develop due to unhealthy body weight which clogs the arteries of the body and affects the blood circulation of the body negatively. Over time, this poor blood circulation contributes to erectile dysfunction in men.
Often, erectile dysfunction caused by obesity and excessive weight gain is reversible. If a person makes an effort to exercise regularly, move his body in such a way that promotes proper blood circulation in the body and aims to maintain healthy body weight, then exercise can easily treat erectile dysfunction. Regular exercise not only prevents erectile dysfunction but also ensures that a man enjoys sexual pleasure for a longer span of time in his life.
Giving up Unhealthy Lifestyle Choices
Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are known for decreasing a person’s sexual appetite and leading to the condition of erectile dysfunction if the person has been adopting these unhealthy substances abuse habits for a long span of time.
Ideally, a person should quit the habits of excessive smoking and drinking completely for the prevention of erectile dysfunction. But we know that going cold turkey all of a sudden can cause withdrawal symptoms, hence it is suggested that you reduce the intake of these substances gradually to prevent and treat male impotency naturally.
Proper Stress Management & Emotional Intimacy with your Partner
Some cases of erectile dysfunction spring from poor stress management and communication gaps along with a lack of emotional intimacy between two sexual partners. Relationships in this modern world can be tricky and it becomes more than important for men to have a heart to heart conversations with their partner about their desires and also the stress they may be facing due to their condition of erectile dysfunction. A healthy sexual life starts with a relationship based on mutual trust between partners.
These are the natural ways of treating erectile dysfunction in men and have shown success rates in many cases, but if your condition is not treated with these dietary and lifestyle changes, there are various medications and treatments available in the present day which can be used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
Medications and Injections:
Testosterone is injected in the penile shaft of men for the treatment of erectile dysfunction that is caused by the lack of this male hormone.
There are various oral medications available in the markets which are effective in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The PDE5 inhibiting drugs such as Sildenafil citrate and Tadalafil are among the most common oral drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. These drugs are available in branded as well as generic forms, Viagra is a brand of Sildenafil citrate, Cialis is a brand of Tadalafil, Kamagra and Vidalista are their generic brands respectively. There are also oral medications such as Super P force which is a combination of Sildenafil citrate and Dapoxetine which treats two common sexual dysfunctions: erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
If you find that your condition is more severe and cannot be effectively treated by oral treatments of erectile dysfunction, vacuum pumps or injections than you may opt for penile implants and surgery which are more expensive but are proven to be effective in the treatment of severe cases of erectile dysfunction.
If you may even use some natural remedies and oral treatments together such as eating apples and spinach along with the medications containing Sildenafil citrate and Tadalafil. Please check-in with your doctor before using any medications, do not self-prescribe. Whichever method of treatment you choose, natural or otherwise, make sure that your doctor approves of it.
