Erectile dysfunction affects millions of men, and that number is growing every year. If you’re suffering from impotence and the other effects of ED, you’re not alone. But what can be done about it?
Before we get into ED treatments, let’s look at what causes erectile dysfunction. Some of the most common conditions that lead to it are:
- Certain medications
- Substance abuse (drugs or alcohol)
- Heart disease
- Plaque buildup inside the blood vessels
- Low testosterone
- High blood pressure or cholesterol
- And more
Whatever the cause, relief can’t come too soon. What you want is a way to fix it. Next, we’ll take a look at natural remedies for erectile dysfunction.
Natural Remedies for ED
There are many natural approaches that can be taken to reverse the effects of ED, including:
- Lifestyle changes
- Certain supplements
- Losing weight
- Reduce alcohol intake
- Cut out tobacco use
- GAINSWave treatments
- Platelet-rich plasma (or PRP) injections
Lifestyle changes – Many of the factors that can cause ED (such as heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, overuse of substances, obesity, diabetes) can be aided by lifestyle changes. Cut back on unhealthy foods, implement a light exercise routine and gradually work towards a healthier lifestyle and weight loss if necessary. Reducing or ceasing use of alcohol & tobacco can also have positive effects on impotence and symptoms of ED.
Supplements – There are certain supplements that have been researched as to their impact on erectile dysfunction with positive results. The herbs panax ginseng, ashwagandha, ginkgo biloba & rhodiola rosea have all been reported to be beneficial as a natural remedy for ED. There have also been studies on the amino acid L-arginine (especially when combined with pycnogenol, a derivative of tree bark), zinc, and the naturally-occurring hormone DHEA that can be converted into testosterone by the body. It is best to do a targeted treatment based off of your exact needs, as one male might be lower in zinc and another in testosterone, or something else entirely.
While many men might see results from one or more of the above natural remedies, there are few treatments that address the cause of the problem with a high success rate and no negative side effects. That is what makes PRP & GAINSWave so exciting for those who are ready to say goodbye to impotence.
PRP and GAINSWave Treatments
You may have heard of platelet-rich plasma before, as it can have incredible results in a wide variety of applications, from healing injuries to aesthetics and anti-aging.
Simply put, PRP is where a small blood sample is extracted and processed (spun at a high speed) to concentrate the platelets, which have an impressive ability to heal the body. After all, that’s what your body uses to heal itself when there’s an injury or stress. This potent concentration of platelets and growth factors is then reintroduced into the affected area – in this case, the penis, where it works to reverse the symptoms of erectile dysfunction and improve blood flow.
One other cutting-edge treatment is GAINSWave. Using low-intensity sound waves at a high frequency, it removes micro-plaque from the blood vessels, while stimulating new vessel growth and boosts blood flow. It is pain-free with no downtime and no side effects.
