“Natural” Oral Solutions to ED May Not Be So Natural

“Natural” Oral Solutions to ED May Not Be So Natural

Erectile Dysfunction, commonly referred to as ED, is a common issue and occurs when a consistent erection cannot be maintained when engaged in sexual intercourse.  If you experience issues with ED then you have probably tried numerous options to treat it. Oral medications such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra or Staxyn are commonly prescribed to men desperate to reverse the effects of ED. Nitric Oxide is a chemical naturally produced by the body to relax blood vessels for optimum flow. These medications increase the levels of Nitric Oxide to increase the possibility of a successful erection. The results are not immediate, however, and patients are cautioned to consult with their doctors in order to understand the risks involved and in order for this process to work properly.

Other options include hormone replacement therapy or psychiatric therapy and even surgery which have also been suggested by experts in the field. Some doctors have supported the use of natural remedies such as consuming ginger, Rhodiola rosea, sea urchin, Red Panax Ginseng, pomegranate juice and other herbal supplements.

However, experts warn consumers to not believe everything they read on the Internet. David Freeman in an article on WebMD states, “Many of the studies that seem to give the remedies a thumbs-up were so poorly designed that their findings are suspect” (2009). In other words, it’s a good idea to get a second or even third opinion from medical professionals before these methods of correction are considered.

Vacuum constriction devices (VCD’s) are another commonly used option. Penis pumps are the most familiar of these and for most men, they often produce the best results. Using a penis pump still takes time, but it has more gratifying, quicker results than oral medications or other natural remedies, and often they can help develop a more active libido, giving you a better and more enjoyable sexual experience.
