Are herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction of any value?
Yes, they can be wonderful. When you get the right ones, they may be the best thing you can find.
They can also be very dangerous and possibly severely harmful. They may even cause death. Not all “herbal” products are safe.
That’s frightening. As it should be. But, don’t think prescription treatments are any less dangerous.
The whole point of using pharmaceutical or herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction is to improve or regain your sex life. Right?
And, there are numerous prescription and herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction available.
The very best herbal erectile dysfunction treatments I ever used came from doctors of Chinese medicine who I located in Chinatown in my city. And, you can find such an authentic Chinatown in any major American city.
Chinese medicine is an art that has been practiced for over 2,500 years. Organized modern western medicine, as we know it, is little barely 300 years old.
Now, I personally prefer Chinese medicine for ALL my health concerns because the basis of the system is rebuilding the human physiology through herbal nourishment.
Western medicine seeks to eliminate symptoms by use of man made drugs.
Am I against western medicine? No. Absolutely not.
There are times when only western medicine can save a life. Or, relieve pain. There is emergency equipment and there are skilled doctors that performs seeming miracles in an emergency situation.
For example, an emergency surgery saved my wife’s life when she had internal bleeding and almost bled to death.
But, for rebuilding the health of the body and restoring health to a weak constitution, nothing surpasses mother nature. These natural herbs and foods are the remedies you will find in Chinese medicine.
Now, getting back to herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction:
ED is usually caused by a weakened system. There are not enough nutrients for the system to produce sperm, semen, or an erection. Or, it may be caused by poor blood flow, as you will find in advanced diabetes. It may be caused by Peyronies disease when the blood can not be contained in the bent penis, or the blood will not flow into the bent penis sufficiently. https://www.issm.info/sexual-health-qa/how-might-peyronies-disease-cause-erectile-dysfunction/.
It may be caused by extreme fatigue, r, too much stress.
There are a very large number of things that can cause erectile dysfunction. Here’s a list from the Mayo Clinic:
Will herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction help in all of these situations?
Neither will drugs.
And, there are time when neither herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction or drugs are the best choice.
Take for Example: Peyronies disease.
Peyronies is a bent penis caused by some hardened tissue inside the shaft. This tissue will not stretch sufficiently during erection and it pulls the shaft in it’s direction during erection.
It’s actually not a “disease” at all. As horrifying as it might seem, it is just a simple condition. Like gray hair. However, a bent penis that results from this condition can cause erectile dysfunction.
The Good News here is:
If the bending caused the ED,
correct non-invasive straightening will usually correct the ED.
In this case, drugs or herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction are usually ever needed.
Yes. Herbal treatments can be dangerous and even deadly.
We all think of herbal treatments as gentle “natural” treatments. Safe. Totally OK.
Well, here’s the problem with that belief:
There are numerous herbal erectile dysfunction treatments and stimulants out there that are not really herbal.
Now I’m inventing these names, but products like this are usually available in convenience stores. If you see a name like “Super Stallion”, or “Eternal Lover”, “Six Hour Stud”, “Emperor’s Magic”, etc... you know you’re looking at potential trouble.
Because a lot of these are imported products that have never been looked at by the FDA or any other regulatory agency.
Sure, most of these products are sold for the man that wants “a little sexual boost”. But, men with out and out ED are trying them also.
And, do you know what?
These products, especially the ones your friends tell you are better than the prescription meds, often contain the same chemical substance in the prescription meds. BUT, in a higher potency. And, the chemicals are NOT on the label.
Illegal? Yes. But, the people that send them here don’t care. And, until they are caught, they get away with it.
This makes them the most dangerous products of all.
For many men, this can cause all the same possible side effects of the drugs: heart attack, blindness, stroke, and even death.
Yes, the FDA and government agencies will remove these from the shelves as soon as they find out about them. BUT, new ones are waiting in line right behind them to replace them.
This even happens to the rich an famous. Take a look at Lamar Oden’s story.
These “herbal” supplements are not always so herbal at all. You have to be careful.
Back to herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction that work well:
If your body is run down, suffering from any kind of deep exhaustion, stressed out terribly, etc... You’re most likely not going to be getting decent erections, or maybe any erections at all.
Join the club. According to Dr. Culley C. Carson, MD: “50 percent of men over the age of 40 experience some amount of erectile dysfunction and that the prevalence increases with age, roughly by decade. For example, roughly 80 percent of people in their 80s have some ED.”
Dr. Mark Newton, a urologist with UnityPoint Health, says: “...it (ED) affects about 50 percent of men over the age of 40 and is even more common as men age."
Hard to believe. Right?
Although this is the new “normal”, it is not normal at all.
Men should be able to attain a decent erection into their 90s. BUT, here’s the catch: Just not as often.
Sure at 20 you may be able to have sex 5 or 6 times a week easily. At 50 twice a month is considered healthy. At 60+ once a month is very good.
That’s right. Don’t think that you have ED if you’re 60 and you’re only getting sexually stimulated twice a month. That’s actually very good and normal for a healthy 60 year old man.
Taking drugs or herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction in this case is insanity. All you’ll be doing is gradually weakening your system and risking all kinds of serious health consequences.
You don’t run as far or at fast at 50 as you did at 19. Sex is no different for you.
Yes they do.
Sure, you’ll be able to perform more at first. Same as when you whip a tired horse. He’ll run some more.
Whip him too much, he’ll drop dead running.
So will your penis. And, your prostate. And, your general health will eventually decline from over use of erectile drugs and herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction.
UNLESS, your herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction are reliable formulas from an experienced licensed herbal doctor. Then, you can watch you sexual health improve steadily.
Also, herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction will not straighten a bent penis.
