Is There Really An Effective Impotence Treatment?

By: Brian Welsch

Inability of a man to have or maintain an erection in order for sexual intercourse to take place is called erectile dysfunction. Impotence varies in severity; some men have a total inability to achieve an erection, others have an inconsistent ability to achieve an erection, and still others can sustain only brief erections.Impotence falls into two broad categories, impotence caused by a physical condition and that caused by a psychological condition.

Sometimes impotence due to a physical condition may be worsened by a psychological component. The treatment of impotence should always include treatment of the underlying cause as well.Experts have estimated that erectile dysfunction affects 30 million men in the Untied States.Impotence can nearly always be treated - 95 percent of men find a suitable treatment. The simplest are talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, and medicines.

Normal Help

- If you smoke, make a plan to stop.
- Take moderate intensity exercise (so you feel warm and slightly out of breath - brisk walking for instance) for half an hour, most days of the week. Eat a balanced diet that is rich in fruit and vegetables and low in fat.
- Drink alcohol in moderation. If you use illegal drugs, bear in mind that these can also cause impotence.
- Aim to reduce stress in your life by looking at the balance between your work and home/leisure time. You may find relaxation techniques are helpful.
- If you have diabetes, you should make sure that you control your blood sugar levels properly.

Natural Treatment

Genuine yohimbe bark (which does contain the alkaloid yohimbine) is purchased in bulk by the pharmaceutical industry that produces yohimbine tablets (primarily Plantecam in Cameroon). Pseudo yohimbe bark, which is much cheaper but contains almost no yohimbine alkaloid, is sold to the manufacturers of health supplements.Yohimbine appears to work better for erectile dysfunction not caused by a physical problem.

A study examined whether 30 mg/day of yohimbine for 4 weeks would help men with erectile dysfunction not due to a physical problem.Its up to you if you choose Medical or Natural treatment.

Medicine Help

There are now three different types of medicine known as phosphodiesterase type-5 (PDE5) inhibitors. The most well-known of these is sildenafil (Viagra). There are two other similar medicines called tadalafil (Cialis) and vardenafil (Levitra) that work in the same way. All three medicines cause the blood vessels in your penis to relax so more blood can flow into it, leading to an erection.
