The term "erectile dysfunction" (ED) can mean the inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or achieve only brief erections. Many men experience ED, often by age 40. Some experience chronic, complete erectile dysfunction (impotence) or brief erections. Erectile dysfunction can cause emotional and relationship problems and often leads to diminished self-esteem. Erectile dysfunction is treated, usually successfully, in our  REAL THERAPIES CLINIC.


male_erection_problems_in_bedroomErectile dysfunction, also called impotence; is the inability to get an erection or sustain it long enough for sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction responds well to natural remedies, which offer a safe and effective alternative to drugs. It's a problem that many men are extremely reluctant to consult their doctors about. Yet it is surprisingly common, affecting almost half of all men, at least temporarily, at some point in their lives. For ten per cent of men, it becomes a long-term problem, but is one that responds well to natural remedies, which offer a safe and effective alternative to drugs.


The inability to get or sustain an erection can lead to all kinds of performance anxiety and self-esteem issues. There are multiple causes for erectile dysfunction -- from physical conditions such as heart disease, prostate cancer and diabetes to psychological factors like stress, anxiety and depression.


Often however impotence is temporary and is the result of stress and often taking active measures such as an exercise program, or yoga, is all that's needed to reverse it. Other causes include declining testosterone levels and reduced blood flow to the penis, both of which can be overcome by following an alternative approach.


However, if you find that the problem persists for more than two weeks, it's vital that you see your doctor. Don't wait due to embarrassment, as erectile dysfunction can be a symptom of benign prostate enlargement or other serious conditions. Also certain medication can sometimes cause impotence as a side effect. These include drugs to control high blood pressure, treatments for stomach ulcers, antihistamines and some antidepressants. If you are taking any of these drugs, talk to your doctor about the possible side effects. 


A commonly prescribed drug for impotence is Viagra, however, it can cause a range of unpleasant side effects, including headaches, facial flushing, dizziness, indigestion and visual disturbances. More alarmingly, Viagra has been linked to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke among others.  Patients who are taking any nitrate medications (commonly prescribed for relief of angina pectoris "chest pain") need be especially vigilant. In combination with Viagra, they could seriously lower blood pressure. (Fact sheet:Impotence Australia)
