Erectile dysfunction is a condition in which the erection is weak or completely lost, which makes it impossible to have a full sexual intercourse. In addition, a man may suffer from low sexual desire, lack of orgasm and premature ejaculation.
In this article, we will review the basic approaches to the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
How To Get Rid Of Erectile Dysfunction?
|Cause of ED||Treatment|
|Psychogenic factors (trauma, frustration, shock)||Work with a therapist. This approach is applied to psychological erectile dysfunction. The patient and his sexual partner attend the sessions, during which the specialist finds out the problem and corrects the patient’s views on it. Also, the therapist gives advice for improving the intimate life and boosting sex drive.
Behavioral therapy is a kind of psychotherapy aimed at eliminating the wrong thoughts of a man that directly affect self-esteem, social behavior and relationships with a sexual partner.
|Stagnant processes in the pelvic organs||A vacuum, or LOD-therapy. A vacuum device is used to change in blood flow in the arteries and saturate the penis with oxygen. This method is used as an additional component in the complex treatment of ED.|
|Varices||Preparations for the toning of veins. Once the patient’s condition improves, erectile dysfunction disappears.|
|Insufficient production of testosterone, associated with pathologies of the endocrine system||Therapy with synthetic substitutes for the male sex hormone. Drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and their dosage are selected by the attending physician individually. You can purchase such medications in Canadian online pharmacies.|
|No results of treatment with ED pills||Intravenous administration of alprostadil. It is used if the testosterone concentration in the blood has reached a normal level, but the effect is still absent. The drug solution is injected into the erectile tissue of the penis. The method is quite painful, so it’s used only in case of emergency.|
|Insufficient blood supply to the vessels of the penis||Introduction of the gel with alprostadil to the urethra. This technique is also suitable if a patient has psychogenic erectile dysfunction.
To restore blood circulation, the shock wave method is used. In this case, doctors use special equipment which provides shock waves to the penis. Their energy contributes to the formation of new vessels and normalizes the work of the vessels in the penis. The therapeutic procedure has no side effects.
|Serious circulatory disorders in the penis, congenital anomalies||Surgery. In the most difficult situations, patients need penile implants. This procedure is expensive but very effective.|
How to treat erectile dysfunction at home?
Effective treatment of erectile dysfunction involves a combination of medication and physical therapy procedures, but to achieve the best result a man needs to change his lifestyle. He should correct nutrition, increase physical activity, reject bad habits.
We recommend you doing exercises for better potency – they have a stimulating effect. You can do it at home or walk and run in the street.
You can try to use ED natural remedies, but only with the permission of the attending physician.
Diet is another important component of the treatment program. A man needs to eat foods that increase potency. These include:
- Fish fatty varieties and seafood (herring, mackerel, shrimp, mussels). They contain substances that have a positive effect on the blood vessels and are involved in the production of testosterone;
- Cereals. Millet, oatmeal, pearl barley improve metabolism and digestion, prevent the violation of blood circulation;
- Meat. It contains a large amount of protein, which promotes muscle growth and overall strengthening of the body;
- Celery. This vegetable contains many vitamins, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium. The most useful part of the vegetable is the root;
- Oysters. In addition to being a powerful source of zinc, oysters are an aphrodisiac and have a positive effect on the state of the prostate gland.

- Eat correctly, give up fast food and other harmful foods;
- Refuse bad habits;
