6 Natural Remedies To Help With Erectile Dysfunction

erectile-dysfunction

There’s an estimated 30 million men that experience erectile dysfunction. Even though it’s more common for older men to experience erectile dysfunction, age is not necessarily a cause for the issue. Erectile dysfunction can often lead to emotional and relationship issues, as it tends to lessen men’s confidence. What most people don’t know is that erectile dysfunction is often a sign of an underlying issue.

 

What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction refers to the inability for men to obtain or maintain a penile erection. From time to time, men may experience issues when it comes to keeping a firm erection, however, if the issue progresses, occurring more often, it could be a sign of erectile dysfunction. When the penis is erect, there’s an increase in the size of the blood vessels that carry blood to the penis, decreasing the size of the vessels carrying the blood out. When men experience erectile dysfunction, there’s poor circulation in the penile area.

 

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

The cause for erectile dysfunction is normally due to poor circulation in the body. Poor circulation can stem from a variety of factors, predominately from health ailments that decrease the blood flow and the size of the blood vessels. Circulation is vital to men achieving erections, as blood also flows to the genital area. It’s common for the exact cause of erectile dysfunction to be related to physical issues that derive from certain diets and lifestyles. Erectile dysfunction can also be from a combination of both physical and emotional issues.

 

Natural Remedies For Erectile Dysfunction:

  • Eliminating foods that contribute to poor circulation is key. Foods that tend to clog arteries and prevent proper circulation include caffeinated beverages, processed foods, sugar, alcohol, and foods high in starch and fat. These foods mostly contribute to the impairment of blood circulation. Cutting back on these foods alone can help restore the amount of circulation within the body. To specifically help promote more circulation in the genital area, it would be best to consume foods that are high in Omega 3, Vitamin B, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C. Foods that have been known to help with circulation include oranges, garlic, cayenne pepper, sunflower seeds, avocados, ginger, cucumbers, celery, and red bell peppers.
  • Arginine is a type of amino acid that been linked to improving health conditions that are related to artery and blood vessel health. Arginine has been recommended to help address erectile dysfunction in addition to other health ailments. Foods that are high in arginine include pumpkin seeds, spirulina, peanuts, almonds, raw lentils, and walnuts. Consuming these foods can help stimulate the blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow.
  • Addressing your initial health issues is the best way to treat erectile dysfunction. When you address the source of poor circulation, it’s easier to treat the symptoms some ailments may present, hence erectile dysfunction. Repairing your body from the ailments that affect cardiovascular health and circulatory health can help achieve a better erection.
  • If you’re a person who smokes, quitting can help improve the conditions of erectile dysfunction. Smoking can stress the body and specifically cause circulation issues. Nicotine has been known to reduce genital blood flow specifically.
  • Acupuncture has been known to help with circulation issues, as the needles help dilate blood vessels. There are specific acupuncture points that help get the blood moving again. Erectile dysfunction can also be mentally related, and acupuncture can help reduce the amount of stress or anxiety and the body.
  • Erectile dysfunction is essentially a physical issue, however, anxiety and stress can make things worse. It’s important that you emotionally address the condition, alleviating your conscience. Think positive thoughts in hopes of remedying the impotence. Talking to your partner for encouragement in hopes of overcoming the condition can also help.

    Q: I have been diagnosed with Prostatitis. I have been talking anti-biotics to treat the bacteria. Other than the symptoms of pelvic pain and clear bacteria presence, I have been having issues with erection and libido. I was put on a antibiotics for 3 months. My question is after I am done with the antibiotics I would like to use herbs for continual treatment. I think it would be a good idea to detox after my treatment but what would you recommend for the sex drive and erection issue? In one of your articles you said " Would you believe that most cases of penile erectile dysfunction are due to Clogged Arteries, and Poor Blood CIRCULATION?" I am in agreement with that statement. How does this factor in with my case of prostatitis since I am having some erection, sex drive issues?

    A:

    Antibiotics for prostatitis? Not helping the problem! I urge you to read our "Male Prostate" article in our articles section. Don't even worry about the sex drive. Your body is talking to you about a disease and you're concerned with erection. Refrain from sex, and concentrate on healing. Get your mind right! Focus on optimal health and well-being. Please check out our Mental Science Manual (visit e-books section). Think about performing the Full Body Detox followed by the Total Male Cleanse, at least for starters in correcting this problem.

    Q: I am interested in getting info about your herbal remedy for erectile dysfunction. I really need to know if it works. Nothing else has worked for me. I have tried all kinds of other herbal supplements. I am at my wits end.

    A:

    First, spend some time reading and enlightening yourself on the true causes of penile erectile dysfunction. You can't heal unless you know the true cause of what you're healing from. Go to the root of the problem and don't treat the symptom. PED is only a symptom!

    I would suggest you first perform the Full Body Detox (read up on this kit on our site) followed by our Total male Cleanse.

    After these cleanses, do a daily regimen of 3 capsules of Jackrabbit, 3 capsules of Male Hormonal Formula, and 3 capsules of Circul-aid, and 1 cup of Male Health Tea.

    You can be healed but healing is not one dimensional, it's wholistic.

    Q:

    A:

    Diabetes can often create a domino affect on the health as it slows up the circulation in the body. Men often experience erectile dysfunction due to certain health ailments like Diabetes. We recommend starting off with The Full Body Cleanse first to eliminate backed up toxins and waste from your system. In doing the cleanse, you’re detoxing all of your major organs including the lungs putting your overall health into a better state. Your body is always more receptive to healing from the conditions when your health is in a better state.

    The regimen and the diet for the cleanse helps to recondition your body, helping it distinguish the difference between refined sugar and sugar from a natural source. After completing the cleanse, move on to the Pancreas cleanse and Regimen to specifically help aid with the conditions of diabetes.  Cleansing helps give your body a reset, helping it function on it's own. After completing both cleanses, you can better assess what your body needs.  You can always try the Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen and the The Male Cleanse if needed after addressing your number one health issue.

    Q: Hi, I have been suffering from a dull pain the testicular area for over 2 years now. I have seen 2 urologists that have confirmed that I have enterococcus bacteria in either the prostate of genital area based on semen culture. I have also done testicle ultrasound and CAT scan of the area with good results. One of the urologist said that I have an inflamed prostate (prostitis) there was some varicose veins when ultra sound was done but the urologist continues to give me long term antibiotics. Some my symptoms have been dull pain in the testicular area when I need to have a bowel movement. low energy, moody, memory loss, irritable, confused, brain fog etc. I use to have a health sex drive but now my sex drive is really low. A bit of erectile dysfunction but I think that comes more from having the pain all the time and anxiety. I don't know if this is possible but my penis seems to have reduced in size when erect. The doctor ask me to try some cialis for the ED which I did for a short while but decided I needed something natural because of the long term problems of using those medications. I have had long periods of stress from a bitter business relationship about 2 years ago. My concern is that every time I go to the urologist all they want to do it give me antibiotics and that doesn't seem to be working. I am concern of the other organ damage caused by taking long term antibiotics. Is there an alternative you recommend? I have been looking at your Anti- virus treatment. I am 30 years old.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOXfollowed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. Read some of our free health articles too on male reproductive health. Healing begins with knowledge!

    Q: How are you. I ran into your page on Youtube and subsequently did some research. Very Knowledgeable you are. I have problems with weight, stress, and erectile dysfunction. I work nights if I were to order your Full Body Detox does it need to be conducted in a different manner than someone who works at nights?

    A:

    Basically, you would just reverse the times you take the formulas. Instead of starting at 7 a.m., you'd start at 7 p.m. (or whenever you start your day or night). Just flip flop the time schedule. Plenty of people do this, those that work night shifts.

    Q: I'm writing regarding 2 issues that I would like advice on. First, I am a 31 year old professional athlete (african american), and I was diagnosed with over active bladder in 2006. This condition makes me use the rest room about 20 to 30 times per day, it is very uncomfortable. The urologist went inside the penis with a camera, but he did not find anything, and from there he said I had "overactive bladder". I would like to know if you recommend something that specifically could work on helping repair the bladder, and prostate area. I have already taken your Full Body Detox. I am just looking for something that specifically repairs the bladder/kidney function. On that note, I also want to know is there something I can take for penile dysfunction? I was with my wife the other night, and everything went fine. Until, I noticed that I was experiencing some issues as far as the penis staying erect, about half way through the act. I do not smoke, drink, or abuse any drugs. I'm wondering where it may have come from? Could the frequent urination have anything to do with it? Also, it is noteworthy to mention that I was masturbating alot even 3 times a day, for a period of years. I am wondering could that be a problem? Can I repair these issues?

    A:

    Greetings! I recommend the Total Male Cleanse which will address every concern you wrote about. While performing this cleanse, order and drink "Kidney's Tea", and "Jackrabbit Tea" (1 cup of each daily while cleansing). Your genital glands may have become weakened due to the excess masturbation. You lost a lot of zinc (with every ejaculation zinc and other nutrients are lost), so after the TMC make sure you purchase, and take our Zinc Phosphate, MSM Sulfur, Kidneys-Bladder Formula and Male Hormonal Formula, at least for 3 months until you rebuild the uro-genital system. The kidneys are connected to the sex glands.

    Learn mental science for sexual enhancement. The same principles apply. Check out our 'Mental Science' e-book and work those techniques in the sex act. Trust me - they work!
    You can heal, Beloved!
    Also, read some of our great FREE health articles on male sexual health. The site is loaded with good free information!

    Q: I am 47 years old, African American female, whose health has been failing for the past six years (75 lbs overweight, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, poor circulation, long-term/short-term memory loss). I have a uterine fibroid the size of a 23-week-old fetus. Rather take the natural way out. God does work in mysterious ways?I stumbled upon your website today. My plan is to do the Full Body CLeanse first. Please advise me on the use of the Female Cleanse and Fibroid Formula. Can the two be used in conjunction?

    A:

    We recommend that you perform the Full Body Cleanse (and the soak mentioned in the Full Body Detox Companion) for 20 days followed by the Female Cleanse for 20 days, followed by the  Weight Release Kit and Regimen. After you finish your cleanses, your regimen should consist of Fibroid Formula, Weight Release Formula, Electric Greens, and Detox Tea.

    Do not use the Fibroid Formula in conjunction with the Female Cleanse or any other cleanse. Each cleanse must maintain its own set of formulas. Only use the Fibroid Formula once your cleanses are complete.

    Purchase the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual for better and healthier food choices (on the cleanses and while off the cleanses). It is best to optimize your diet in order to achieve the best results and potentially heal yourself from your variety of ailments.

    Q: Three years ago I had a surgical procedure done to relieve an 8 - 9 erection. They cut me on both sides of my penis and told I never have another erection again. I immediately started to dissolve the scar tissue with systemic enzymes, and can see a difference in blood flow but nothing close to a penetrate able erection. If I use the pump it attempts to stretch it out close to normal size and girth. But to no avail the blood begins to run right back out of the shaft. I finally found the woman of my dreams, and can't get it up.
