With age, it becomes difficult for many men to achieve an erection and maintain it. This is known as Erectile Dysfunction. This is not necessarily related to a lowered libido. In many cases, a man may desire sex but not be able to have an erection rigid enough for intercourse.

Men with a history of obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and smoking are at a higher risk of suffering from erectile dysfunction as they get older. However, natural treatments for Erectile Dysfunction are available.

Best Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction can be treated in a number of ways. Some best treatment is given below:

Viagra: Viagra is usually the first form of treatment for erectile dysfunction. Viagra is a type of drug also known as phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors. These drugs increase the blood flow into the penis and thus enable an erection. Levitra and cialis are other forms of phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors. However, Viagra is a temporary treatment and has a side effect that it is a habit-forming drug.

Penile Injection: If a man cannot take oral medication, a penile injection is the best form of erectile dysfunction treatment. Here, medication is directed into the side of the penis. This dilates the arteries and allows blood to flow in. thus it instantly initiates an erection.

Intraurethral Suppositories: This involves placing a soluble medicated pellet into the urethra. This increases the blood flow into the penis and will create an erection in 10-15 minutes. This form of treatment for erectile dysfunctions is rarely used.

Vacuum Pump: A vacuum pump is another common treatment for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation condition. It consists of a plastic cylinder that is placed over the penis and a pump that removes the air within the cylinder thus forcing blood to flow into the penis. An elastic ring is then slid onto the base of the penis to hold the erection. The ring must be removed after a maximum of 30 minutes.

Surgical Implants: There are two types of surgical implants that can be beneficial to men who have not benefitted from medication. The first is an inflatable pump that can manually pump fluid into cylinders within the penis. The second is a malleable prosthesis.

Best Ayurvedic Medicines for Erectile Dysfunction

Gold Bhasma: Gold Bhasma also known as Swarna Bhasma is prepared from pure gold. Nowadays, the use of technology has mitigated many tedious steps, which one had to undergo during the ancient times to prepare it. Gold Bhasma is highly effective and is used for the treatment of infertility, erectile dysfunction sexual weakness, tuberculosis, cancer, asthma, and many other fatal diseases.

Silver Bhasma: Silver Bhasma is also known as Rajat Bhasma or Raupya Bhasma is a calcified Ayurvedic medicine used for treating erectile dysfunction, but also for a number of diseases such as jaundice, frequent urination, enlargement of the spleen, etc.

Both Gold Silver Bhasma are mixed with other Ayurvedic medicines for effective treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Change in Lifestyle to Treat Erectile Dysfunction & Premature Ejaculation
