Impotence in old age is a very common issue. In fact, one of the main causes of impotence is old age. However, it is not something that is easily accepted, and therefore most men look out for something which can restore their ‘manly’ days so that they can enjoy a normal sex life. While many resorts to hormonal supplements and chemicals, one should definitely consider going for a counselling session. They need to be explained that this is normal with ageing, and as with all body parts, even the reproductive systems will go through a slowdown with ageing.
However, homoeopathy has some solutions that claim to help impotence in old age. The reasoning for the same is that it is not just old age, which leads to this, but a number of associated factors that cause impotence. Whether it is tobacco addiction or prostate enlargement, diabetes or depression; homoeopathy tries to cure not just the problem at hand but also the associated cause. In many cases, the underlying cause could often be the inducing agent for impotence. The following are some time-tested ingredients that have been shown to provide remarkable results in people with impotence.
In elderly males who have a normal sexual desire, but have shorter erections and/or eject prematurely, Lycopodium is a good option. This has been proven to improve both conditions and is an ideal choice. In men who are depressed and sad, where the sadness takes over so much that the person loses all interest in sex and is not able to achieve an erection, Agnus Castus is useful. This helps improve depression, increases interest, and helps maintain a strong erection.
As noted above, homeopathy addresses the issues in a personal holistically. These are safe and effective and therefore widely used in the elderly male for treating impotence based on associated symptoms.
Most men, at some point in time, experience a condition, known as Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Erectile Dysfunction is a condition, whereby the person concerned is unable to get an erection. Even if he gets one, he fails to keep it. Erectile Dysfunction often goes untreated because most men find the condition embarrassing enough to be discussed. This lack of awareness has given rise to many unreasonable and illogical myths and misconceptions.
Myths and misconceptions about ED that needs to be busted
Erectile Dysfunction is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, timely medication can greatly improve the condition. For proper awareness, it is necessary to get the facts right.
Myth: Erectile Dysfunction is nothing serious, self-medication will help
Fact: Really? Your grey matter must be working overtime to bless you with such amazing ideas. Erectile Dysfunction, at times, can be an indication of something as big and serious as Diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Hypertension or Atherosclerosis. Reason enough to shed your inhibitions and consult a physician at the earliest.
Myth: Erectile Dysfunction is an old age problem
Fact: These illogical misconceptions will do you no good. Get this baseless myth out of your system. Though Erectile Dysfunction is common amongst the older folks, the younger lot are not spared either. Erectile Dysfunction can affect men of all age groups.
Myth: Erectile Dysfunction can be due to a cold partner, who fails to attract and excite you
Fact: Lack of interest in your partner seldom results in Erectile Dysfunction. There can be many underlying factors that can interfere with the erection. Certain medications, depression, obesity or lifestyle habits (smoking and street drug abuse) can affect one's performance greatly.
Myth: Any erection problem is Erection Dysfunction
Fact: This myth is as absurd and irrational as the saying; all tumours are benign. Before drawing any conclusion, it is important to get to the root cause. A person going through an intense emotional turmoil or stress might not get an erection. There will be days when a man will not be able to keep an erection. There is nothing to raise a hue and cry over it. It is just a phase and will pass off soon.
Myth: Erectile Dysfunction results in low or no libido at all
Fact: In males, low libido often results from a significant drop in the testosterone level. It is an outcome of the hormonal changes taking place within the body. Erectile Dysfunction has little to do with low libido.
