If searching for the solution for your erectile dysfunction (ed) symptoms, you probably already know that today's prescription medications carry a significant risk of known and unknown side-effects. That's why we always recommend to try all available natural remedies for ED first and then resort to the more serious medications.
Following the common sense approach, always check with your doctor and other related experts to ensure that there won't be any conflicts with the prescription meds you might already be using. But, in general, natural remedies for ED are safer and should not cause trouble. Here is another article that discusses pros and cons for natural remedies for ED.
Nowadays, medications for erectile dysfunction (ed) are very expensive and usually have some negative side-effects and some manual devices are very uncomfortable and discomfiting to use. This is the reason why most men opt for natural remedies for ED.
There are different kinds of plants that are considered as effective natural remedies for ED. These herbs are recommended by experts. They are divided into two classes namely; relaxing remedies and aphrodisiac.
Some herbs that are included in relaxing remedies are lavender, wild oats, passionflower, California poppy and valerian. These herbs were said to be natural remedies for erectile dysfunction because they can make a person relaxed and lessen incidence of depression, stress and anxiety.
Researchers, scientists, and experts point their finger at these psychological problems as one of the main culprits for male's erectile dysfunction. By taking care of these mental issues using herbal medicines, one is also indirectly solving his problem on erectile dysfunction. It's like hitting two birds with one stone.
The other category, aphrodisiacs, is probably more common to us. We usually hear this on the news. There are many claims about plants and foods that increase people's natural sexual urge or desire. However, we are not sure which one of these really works.
Some experts already discarded the idea of using Spanish fly and the very rare rhinoceros horn as natural remedies for erectile dysfunction. Experts on ED recommend ginseng as an alternative natural remedy, specifically ‘red Chinese' or ‘red Korean' ginseng. The kind of unprocessed ginseng that we usually see is not as effective as these special ginsengs. Ginseng can help improve one's digestive and immune systems, which in turn reduces ED symptoms.
Weak digestive and immune systems is another major factor of erectile dysfunction. Aside from this, ginseng can also increase testosterone among men, making them more sexually active. Experts suggest that ginseng can be taken in every day, usually with tea.
Most natural remedies for ED that belong in the aphrodisiac kind usually target certain systems in the body like circulatory system. Herbs like turmeric, motherwort, and prickly ash bark are said to be effective in improving circulatory system.
Other natural aphrodisiacs that may be helpful in addressing ED are Mira puama, damiana, eleuthero, ashwaganda, and schisandra.
Aside from these herbs, there are certain natural remedies that we take for granted. One of these is eating a well-balanced and healthy diet. We should also include certain foods in our diet that are said to fight ED signs and symptoms like garlic, carrots, onion, dried roots of asparagus, ginger, dried dates and raisins, and chocolates.
However, before you use any of these above-mentioned natural remedies for erectile dysfunction, it is still best to consult your physician for any possible effects it may have on your overall body condition.
In most cases, natural remedies for erectile dysfunction are staring us right in the face and we don't even notice. What we need to do is to have a healthy lifestyle. Put away your cigarettes and avoid drinking alcohol as much as possible. Exercise daily and before you know it, you are like a 15-year-old again, very active and very much alive.
