Natural Remedies For Erectile Dysfunction

relationships, sex drive Generally speaking, when considering natural remedies for erectile dysfunction, you should always have a physical exam to rule out physical disorders that could be causing the problem. In men, alcoholism, cancer, hypertension, diabetes, obesity (the most common cause!), coronary artery disease and peptic ulcers all reduce the levels of testosterone. To better regulate the natural cycles of testosterone, you should take 30mg of zinc per day.

Avoid drinking beer as hops contain compounds very similar to estrogen. Years of use can reduce sex drive in both men and women as well as cause feminization in men.

Seek counseling to overcome any psychological issues that are affecting your sex drive.

Herbs To Avoid

The following herbs should be avoided if you are having erectile dysfunction:
  • Dong quai
  • Fennel
  • Hops
  • Licorice
  • Peony
  • Soy isoflavones
  • White willow or willow bark

Further Considerations

Many doctors frequently recommend testosterone supplementation for men and to some extent for women. While increasing desire at first, over time this may slow down. In addtition, an over dosage can result in an increase in body hair and a lowered voice.

Androstenedione, available commercially, can temporarily spike testosterone levels, increasing sex drive in men and women. Take 100mg daily for 1 week every 2 months. It should be used for only a few months as over time the effects diminish as the brain becomes used to it.

Both DHEA adn pregnenolone have unpredictable effects on testosterone levels and in some cases may even lower them, so they are best avoided.

American ginseng is a less stimulating alternative to ginseng. Use the tincture as directed on the label.

In women, the most common cause of low testosterone is ERT or estrogen replacement therapy. One pill, Estratest contains testosterone and estrogen and is available by prescription.
