Erectile Dysfunction

Overview

Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction, is a condition in which men are unable to achieve or sustain an erection. Although impotence is often viewed as a natural consequence of aging, this isn’t the case. In fact, many healing traditions, such as Ayurveda, the healing system of India, and traditional Chinese medicine, regard impotence as a sign that overall health is declining.

Caution: Impotence, especially in men 60 years old and younger, can sometimes be an indication of undiagnosed heart disease. If you suffer from impotence and are not sure why, seek prompt medical attention.

As a result of the number of people affected by this condition, drugs such as Viagra®, Cialis®, Levitra®, and other ED drugs are incredibly popular and profitable.  These drugs are used over and over again by men and they generate billions of dollars in profits for ED drug manufacturers.  However, these drugs have major negative side effects and have been shown to cause stroke, heart attack, arthritis, diabetes, depression, stress, anxiety, and blindness.  Many other diseases are linked to these powerful, toxic, and dangerous drugs.   If you are a man who has some form of erectile dysfunction, there is a cure.

There are two types of impotence—primary impotence and secondary impotence. Primary impotence is rare and is almost always psychological in nature, leaving men incapable of engaging in sexual intercourse.  Secondary impotence, which can also be psychological in nature, tends to be situational, meaning that men who suffer from it can engage in sexual intercourse on some occasions, but not always, depending on various factors, such as time, place, and their feelings towards their sex partner.

Causes of impotence are divided into two classifications: physical and psychological.

Physical Causes: The primary physical causes of impotence are chronic stress, lack of physical fitness, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and poor diet. Cigarette smoking can also be a factor because of how nicotine can reduce overall circulation, resulting in diminished blood flow to the penis. Environmental pollutants, especially heavy metals, can also play a role.

Many pharmaceutical drugs can also cause or contribute to impotence. These include Anafranil Capsules, Lupron Depot, Lupron Injection, Normodyne Injection and Tablets, Paxil, Pepcid AC, Proscar, Prozac, Roferon-A Injection, Tagament, Wellbutrin, Xanax, and Zantac. Antacids, antihistamines, blood pressure medications, antidepressants, diuretics, nicotine, and psychotropic drugs are all associated with impotence, as well as most cold and flu medicines.

Impotence can also be due to other health conditions, including alcohol and/or drug addiction, diabetes, heart disease and/or elevated cholesterol levels, hypothyroidism, low pituitary function, and neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

Psychological Causes: Psychological causes of impotence include anxiety, depression, fear of intimacy and/or sex, and extreme feelings of guilt or shame. Boredom in one’s relationship can also be a factor, as can low self-esteem and performance anxiety (fears that you will not be able to satisfy your partner).

To determine if impotence is primarily being caused by psychological factors, physicians will often perform what is called a “stamp test.” This involves placing a ring of paper around the penis before going to bed. During rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, or dreaming, healthy men typically experience some degree of erection. If this occurs during the stamp test, the ring of paper will become displaced, indicating that psychological factors are most likely the cause of impotence problems.

Note: Failure to achieve an erection during sleep may be a sign of a deeper underlying health problem and may require medical attention.

As with all conditions this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health protocols

Detoxification Therapy:

  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
  • Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com/ Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic.  Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water.   It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.

Hydrotherapy:

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  Read more about colonics by clicking here.  Find a practitioner here.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state.  During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water www.drinkrealwater.com/
  • Invest in a shower filter and only drink spring water as the chlorine and fluoride found in tap water can cause hormonal imbalances, leading to low testosterone levels.

Avoid foods that are high in unhealthy saturated fats and low in fiber.

Avoid alcohol and caffeine

Avoid foods that are overly spicy.

Eliminate simple carbohydrates, refined sugars and sugar products,

Eliminate hydrogenated and partially-hydrogenated fats and oils, margarine, shortening, and all processed and commercial “junk” food.

Eat a diet of organic whole foods, with plenty of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables

Consume oats, whole grains, nuts and seeds, especially pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

Minimize your intake of red meat, but be sure to consume adequate amounts of organic, free-range poultry (preferably turkey), bison meat and wild-caught fish.

Consume Nattokinase – it is an enzyme extracted from natto, a Japanese food made from fermented soybeans. It is unmatched by any other food derived enzyme for its’ circulation-enhancing effects and is therefore a popular remedy for erectile dysfunction.

Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day.

Drink Cantaloupe/Watermelon Juice or eat the fruit.

Supplements:

Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day / for periods of up to 4 weeks at a time.

Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here kevintrudeaudailylifesessentials.com/

Take omega 3s:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Vegetarian

Try Chelation Therapy – people with impotence often suffer from a low blood supply.  Chelation therapy improves this situation:

Oral chelation – www.naturalcupboard.com

Intravenous Chelation www.oaktreewellness.com

Vitamin E (Unique E) www.acgrace.com

Able Heal Live Cell Therapy http://ow.ly/ebbqa

Deer Antler Velvet www.royalvelvetforlife.com

Eleotin is advised for diabetics and pre-diabetics and has been found to be very effective in correcting erectile dysfunction kt.eleotinusa.com

Nutritional deficiencies are usually zinc, magnesium and calcium so ensure you are getting your optimum levels of these.

Other useful nutrients for treating and preventing this condition include vitamin B3 (niacin), B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, manganese, and alpha-lipoic acid, evening primrose oil, and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Garlic capsules, acidophilus, and hydrochloric acid (HCl) can also be helpful, as can Wobenzyme, to help protect against inflammation.

L-arginine

L-arginine is an amino acid used by the body to make nitric oxide, which helps relax the smooth muscle in the penis to allow for enhance blood flow and thus leading to an erection.    See article ‘Remedies for erectile dysfunction’ for research findings, in the article section.

Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this   illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.

We know that when the body is out of balance, energy doesn’t flow, leading blockages and eventually dis-ease. Here are some things you can do to combat stress and restore balance:

  • Go to a Dr Morter BEST (Bio-Energetic Synchronisation Technique) Practitioner.
  • Sign up for Energetic Re-Balancing: 2 practitioners to consider are:
  • Stephen Lewis, founder of the Aim Program. Find out more by clicking here.

  • Try Alphabiotics www.alphabiotics.biz
  •  Dr Callahan Emotional Freedom Techniques rogercallahan.com/cmd.php?clk=4187387
  • Try meditation to reduce stress and induce healing
  • Reiki healing is very powerful in releasing stress and emotional baggage.  Find a practitioner here.

Research

DHEA – research from the University of Texas in San Antonio found a non-prescription drug called DHEA can help to treat impotence.  A Massachusetts Male Aging Study in 1994 showed that impotent men often have low blood levels of a chemical produced by the adrenal glands, called DHEA that is converted to the male hormone, testosterone.  The study at the University of Texas gave sufferers 50 mg DHEA pills once a day for 6 months, the results were a marked improvement in their ability to have erections.
