Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction, is a condition in which men are unable to achieve or sustain an erection. As many as 30 million men in the United States are estimated to suffer from impotence to some degree. 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. First, ask yourself why you are unable to get an erection. The answer is there are many potential causes.
Types of Impotence
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.
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
- 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.

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.
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.

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.
