Natural Remedies for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction refers to the inability of a man to achieve erection. Erectile dysfunction makes it impossible for a man to enjoy sexual pleasure. A person suffering from ED also has to face a lot of embarrassment due to ED. Erectile dysfunction can also lead to a reduction of sexual libido as well.

There are various causes of ED. Some of them are:

1.       Stressful Life

2.       Bad eating habits

3.       Smoking and Drinking

4.       Genetic

Except for the people who suffer from ED due to genetic reasons, all the other factors contributing to ED can be removed by a few lifestyle changes.

Most people turn to drugs and mechanical devices like vacuum pumps etc. for curing their ED but many people prefer a natural cure. Fortunately, research has found that there are some herbs and natural drugs that can help to cure ED. Let us take a look at some of them.

1.       Panax Ginseng

Panax Ginseng is an effective herb for curing ED. Panax Ginseng is commonly referred to as the herbal Viagra. Research conducted in 2008 provided strong evidence that ginseng was effective against ED. A daily dose of 600-1000 mg of Panax Ginseng can help to cure ED.

2.       DHEA

Dehydroepiandrosterone is a chemical that is produced by our adrenaline gland. This particular chemical has a major role to play in your erection. Whenever you are sexually stimulated, your adrenaline gland produces this chemical which helps blood flow into the penis. So, a natural dose of this chemical may help in achieving erections.

3.       Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese system of medicine. It involves piercing of needles in the body at certain points that are identified as energy points. Acupuncture provides a very easy cure for ED. By piercing the needles at the correct points, one can make those points active and thus effectively cure ED.

4.       Zinc Supplements

Zinc is an essential mineral in our body. Although it has not been directly linked with ED, doctors founds that most men with ED were low on Zinc too. This suggests that taking Zinc as a supplement can be an effective cure for ED. Recent research shows that this indeed is the case. When a group of 27 men who suffered from ED were provided 50mg of Zinc supplements daily, they showed significant increase in their sexual potential. Therefore, Zinc can be accepted as a suitable solution for ED.

The above treatments are all natural. For all the chemicals listed above, you could eat foods that are rich in those chemicals and still get the benefits. However, if you choose to take these chemicals artificially, do make sure to talk to your doctor first. Taking medicines and drug on your own without a doctors prescriptions is very harmful for your health. Therefore, always consult a doctor before you try any kind of treatment. Always try to opt for natural treatments as these are often the best treatments.
