Old Age Erectile Dysfunction!

Erectile dysfunction can be described as the inability to attain and maintain an erection for long enough to be sexually satisfied. There are many causes for erectile dysfunction. One of the factors that increase a person’s risk of experiencing this condition is advancing age. In a survey that was conducted, for this reason, 40% of men said that they experienced erectile dysfunction for the first time between the age of 60 and 69 years. On the other hand, only 2% of the respondents had experienced this condition before the age of 40 years. The good news is that there are a number of things you could do to control your risk of erectile dysfunction.

  • Lose Weight - Obesity is a major risk factor for erectile dysfunction. Hence, if you are overweight, pay attention to your diet and portion size. This can help you lose weight and keep you from experiencing erectile dysfunction later in life. Losing weight also helps reduce the risk of associated conditions such as diabetes that in turn can also cause erectile dysfunction.
  • Exercise - Exercise is an important part of weight management. However, this is not the only way it benefits a person. According to some studies, men who exercised for at least 3 hours every week had a 30% lower risk of having erection troubles as compared to men who led a sedentary lifestyle. Exercise boosts blood circulation and ensures that nutrients are transported to all parts of the body. Aim at exercising for at least one hour every day. No matter what your age may be, simple non-intensive workouts such as walking, cycling, swimming etc. are great for your body.
  • Find better ways to deal with stress - Stress is another contributing factor to this condition. Thus, it is one of the reasons why you should find ways to deal with stress effectively. Try starting your day with meditation or yoga. Learn to identify stress triggers so that you can avoid such situations or prepare yourself for them. Deep breathing techniques such as Pranayama are very effective in reducing stress. Alternatively, go for a short walk when you feel stressed out.
  • Quit smoking - Smoking not only affects your lungs but also affects your reproductive organs. This is because smoking damages your blood vessels and reduces the amount of blood being circulated to the reproductive organs. Thus, if you want to avoid having erectile dysfunction when you’re older, quit smoking today. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Erectile Dysfunction - Myths Debunked!

Erectile Dysfunction - Myths Debunked!

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.

Sure, that's why sexual education & guidance from a reputed medical officer is the most important factor in today's generation before getting married or having sexual relationship with two persons. As per the sexual medical experts, every city in every country must arrange seminars on this subject at least three times per anum by any government, social clubs and health centres for everyone to prevent sexual disorders, crimes and unlucky deaths.

Ayurveda For All Sexual Problems!

Sexual problems are something that can be born due to physical ailments, stress, anxiety and even relationship problems where intimacy and the culmination of the various phases of sexual activity from stimulation to excitement and peak, cannot be possible in a satisfactory manner. So what are the routine sexual problems recognized and treated as per Ayurveda? Read on to know more.

- Erectile Dysfunction: This condition is also known as impotence and it usually occurs when male patients cannot muster up and retain an erection for long enough to enjoy sexual intercourse. This problem can be fixed with various herbs and condiments including Sanda Oil massage on the testicles and nearby areas in order to increase the blood flow. Also, one can have ginger, honey, drumsticks, milk and other such ingredients for better achievement and retention of an erection for a prolonged period of time during sexual intercourse.

Sanda oil is not available in its pure form and simple branding of this name is not useful. Sanda is a wild reptile which was boiled in ancient times and fats are taken out to make Sanda oil. This is not possible nowadays. Instead, various 'Tilas' (penis massage oils) prepared by valuable herbs and vegetable oils such as Seasame oil should be used. Tila using Mall (purified arsenic) and egg are also effective. Preparation and use should be as per instructions in classical Ayurveda. Tila is selected as per history, present condition and duration of pt. the specific problem, by Ayurveda doctor.

OTC or advertisement products are generic products which do not benefit all. Post application directions are also important otherwise there may be an adverse effect of Tila application

- Premature Ejaculation: Premature ejaculation is a condition when the male patient may face ejaculation as soon as the intercourse begins, or upon insertion. This happens in an unplanned way and is a sudden occurrence that usually puts a damper on the sexual mood and activity. In Ayurveda, there are various herbs including Ashwagandha and a variety of oil massages that can help in treating this problem.

- Sexual Weakness: Sexual weakness is a condition when the female or the male patient may not have the energy to go through with sexual intercourse and may even complain of pain during intercourse. This problem is especially common among women and may be caused due to fatigue, stress or even low pelvic strength following childbirth or miscarriage. The best way to treat this issue is with the help of proper counseling and therapy that will help in introducing Yogic poses that can strengthen the pelvic area so as to have better sexual strength.

- Infertility: This problem may be found in both men and women. Ashwagandha, Basantkusumakar Ras, Shilajeet and Labub Kabir are some of the herbs and concoctions that can help in increasing virility and the chances of conception by creating better sperm quality and quantity, as well as more effective ovulation.

Most of the sexual problems in Ayurveda are recognized as factors that arise from stress and anxiety. These are recognized as temporary issues that can be fixed with the help of a proper routine of eating, resting and exercising, as well as a healthy diet where the patient stays away from smoking, excessive drinking as well as drug abuse. Before taking any herbal medicines, one will have to consult the doctor and find out about side effects for patients suffering from chronic ailments like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and others.

Diabetes & Erectile Dysfunction - Are They Related?

Diabetes & Erectile Dysfunction - Are They Related?

Erectile dysfunction, more commonly known as impotence, refers to one’s inability to keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Although not much talked about, this condition afflicts nearly 50% of all men from different age groups and background.

Many people experience erectile dysfunction due to the following-

  1. Stress/anxiety
  2. Lifestyle choices
  3. Health conditions/diseases (hypertension, obesity, cardiovascular diseases etc.)

Is there any link between Diabetes and ED?
Although Erectile Dysfunction and Diabetes are two separate conditions, they go hand-in-hand. Men with diabetes are more likely to develop ED. Diabetes occurs when the blood sugar level increases because of inadequate insulin production.

The link between ED and Diabetes is related to blood circulation and nervous system. Uncontrollable blood sugar level damages the nerve and blood vessels. Damage to your nerves, which control sexual response and stimulation, can disrupt a person’s ability to get an erection suitable enough for sexual intercourse.

Studies reveal that about 10% of men, who are diabetic, will develop erectile dysfunction within 5-10 years.

How does Homeopathy treat ED?

The origin of Homeopathy dates back to the 18th Century. Prepared from extracts of natural plants, animals and minerals, homeopathy medicines/remedies are used to treat and rectify underlying predispositions of ED. Homeopathic treatment aims to treat the individual as a whole, instead of targeting specific ailing parts of the body. It takes into account the symptoms of the condition along with the underlying causes, and one’s overall health. Thus, homeopathy treats the root cause of the problem. For instance, if diabetes is the cause of erectile dysfunction, homeopathic remedies/medicines will be given to control the blood sugar level.

Conventional methods for ED treatment often fail to address the actual cause behind the disease, and leave behind side effects after treatment. Here again, homeopathy stands apart. The most striking advantage of homeopathy over conventional treatment is that, it has zero side effects.

Erectile dysfunction can be distressing and embarrassing for most men. To get rid of the problem permanently, one needs to go for a treatment that will eliminate the disease from its root. Homeopathy is the best way of treating this condition.
