Erectile dysfunction is the condition that makes blood flow inefficient on the reproductive organ of the man. The condition can be difficult to deal with, mostly because of the embarrassment and insecurity that it may bring. However, there are natural herbs and remedies that can help in addressing this problem.
The Medical News Today reveals that there are several medications, therapies, and treatments that may help in preventing erectile dysfunction in becoming a long-term condition. There are natural remedies and medicines that can be used to treat such condition but may pose possible risks if not practiced properly.
The most common type of natural medication for erectile dysfunction are derived from plants and herbs. L-arginine can be used to improve erectile dysfunction by helping blood vessels to open wider and improve blood flow in the penis. However, one may experience mild cramps, diarrhea, and nausea. It should not be taken with Viagra, a prescription drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction.
Some of the other natural remedies that can be used to treat ED are DHEA, propionyl-L-carnitine, and ginkgo. These herbal medications can improve sexual desire and increase blood flow in the penis. However, they should not be mixed with other treatments because it may result to bleeding or acne. Ginseng is also a widely used natural remedy to treat erectile dysfunction, but can sometimes cause insomnia.
The Mayo Clinic further explains that natural remedies and herbal supplements have long been used in treating erectile dysfunction by the African and Chinese culture. However, unlike prescription medicines, natural remedies are now well-studied and tested and can cause side effects when it interacts with other medications. The ingredients can also vary from one product to another.
Taking in herbal remedies is not usually advised by doctors since they are mostly untested compared to prescription medicines. However, the importance of knowing the possible side effects that come with using a herbal remedy alone or with a prescription drug is necessary to prevent possible damaging effects to the body.
