Erectile dysfunction (ED) is increasingly common, affecting 30 million Americans between ages of 30 and 70. Most cases—some 80% are due to circulatory problems, drug side effects, hormonal imbalance, prostate problems or injury. Smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and depression are also definite causes. Please find below our home remedies impotence.
Additionally, a reduction in male hormones, rise in male infertility and a global decrease in sperm count is mainly due to the estrogen-like effects of pesticides and other environmental toxins. Thus infertility in couples is due to the male in 35% of cases. “Male menopause” is also a fact of life, expressed as a decrease of testosterone and related functions.
Some herbs work like Viagra, increasing circulation to the pelvic area and penis. Others act through mental relaxation or by stimulating specific brain areas. Importantly, tonic and adaptogenic herbs have longterm androgen/testosterone–building effects, rejuvenating the pituitary, adrenals and gonads to balance hormones and increase sex drive. Viagra does none of these. The result can be a permanent improvement in both sexual function and total health.
Impotence is extremely common in men who have diabetes; the estimate is that 50 percent of men with diabetes are impotent and that the other 50 percent will become impotent over time.
Hormonal imbalances such as low levels of thryoid hormone may also contribute to the problem. Low levels of the hormone testosterone are rarely the cause of ED. Testosterone is responsible for the process of desire, not for ED—but of course, lack of desire may be the problem. If desire is not there in the first place, it is difficult to either get or maintain an erection. Loss of libido (sexual desire) may be caused by depression, illness, or medications, and of course, a waning attraction to one’s partner.
ED may be chronic or recurring, or it may occur as a single isolated incident. One or two occurrences, however, are rarely thought of as impotence, although they may be upsetting at the time. Most of the men who have this problem are age forty or over (one in three men over sixty is affected), but those under forty may also have the problem.
