Safe and Effective Naturopathic Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection firm enough for satisfactory sexual intercourse. ED is very common and affects over 30 million men in the United States.

Some men with ED may be embarrassed to seek treatment or only do so after they experience negative life events including an unsatisfactory sex life, relationship issues, or inability to have children.

However, it's important to realize it is a medical condition like any other and the benefits of erectile dysfunction treatment are significant and include increased confidence, lower stress, improved relationships, and more fulfilling sex life.

Causes, Signs & Symptoms

The inability to get or maintain an erection is ultimately caused by a lack of sufficient blood flow to the penis. While there are many possible causes of ED, most prevent sufficient blood from entering the penis by one mechanism or another. Here is a list of some major causes of ED.

  • Hormone imbalances
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Alcohol
  • Medications
  • Stress
  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Nerve issues
  • Trauma to the penis

How is Erectile Dysfunction Diagnosed?

Because there is a large array of potential causes of ED, your doctor will obtain the following to help diagnose ED:
  • A detailed medical history including current medications, illnesses, and previous traumas or surgeries
  • A sexual history to determine under what conditions an erection is not achievable
  • Information from a physical exam to address any nerve issues that may affect sensitivity or to detect trauma or infection
  • A psychological history to address whether emotional issues are a factor
  • Blood samples for functional lab testing
