Impotence in Old Age - How Homeopathic Remedies Can Help?

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 resort 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 condition 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.

  • In men with tobacco addition, Lycopodium and Caladium can be helpful. They also reduce the craving for tobacco in addition to improving sexual vigour. While Caladium is useful even in cases of complete lack of erection, Lycopodium is useful in men with weak erections.
  • Prostate enlargement is another common issue in elderly males which causes impotence. Sabal Serrulata is used as a tincture to improve results by managing both the prostate enlargement and improve impotence. These men also have issues like frequent urination and difficulty passing urine.
  • Diabetes mellitus is another condition which can lead to erectile dysfunction in males. This is very well managed by Acid Phos where the sexual power is also reduced markedly with relaxed genitals. There is also extreme mental exhaustion and physical debility in these men, and all these symptoms are well managed with the use of alk phos.

As noted above, homeopathy addresses the issues in a personal holistically. These are safe and effective and therefore widely used in elderly male for treating impotence based on associated symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.
