Treat Erectile Dysfunction With Ayurveda!

Erectile Dysfunction is a disorder that develops in men. This disorder is characterized by the inability to get an erection during intercourse. A person who fails to maintain an erection during sexual activities is also a sufferer of Erectile Dysfunction. This condition is commonly known as impotency.

Physical intimacy plays a very important role in the relationship between a man and a woman. And, sexual frustration owing to such a disorder can strain the relationship. Some of the major causes of erectile dysfunction are stress, alcoholism, smoking, obesity, heart problems, metabolic disorders and high cholesterol. Many people do not prefer to seek the assistance of traditional medicines in treating this disorder, due to their side effects. However, Ayurvedic treatment has no side effects and it is very effective in treating this adversity.

Indian Ginseng, which is commonly known as Ashwagandha, is an herb that is known to treat erectile dysfunction. Stress is one of the leading causes behind infertility in men. This herb, which can be taken in capsule or powdered form, reduces stress. This is a natural ingredient that also keeps the male hormones like testosterone in balance. By optimizing those hormones that cause erection in the first place, Ashwagandha cures impotency.

Satawari, the scientific name of which is Asparagus racemosus, is an herb that increases sperm count in men. The root of this plant is used to control nerves, thereby decreasing the amount of stress. According to Ayurvedic practitioners, this herb also works as an aphrodisiac and acts a stimulant.

Vajikarana, is one of the eight categories of Ayurvedic treatment and it offers a comprehensive treatment of sexual disorders. Vajikarana or Vrishya chikitsa is aimed at improving sexual prowess in men and women.

Safed Musli, is one such herb that enhances sperm count. Ayurvedic practitioners usually advice a patient to consume 2 grams of safed musli every day for best results. One can either have it in capsule form or powdered form.

Cassia Cinnamon is another aphrodisiac that can be used to treat a man with erectile dysfunction. It is different from the more common powdered cinnamon. So it is better if you buy the cassia cinnamon extract from a trusted Ayurvedic shop. Also talk to your doctor about the dosage of this medicine.
