Homeopathy for Erectile Dysfunction

Homeopathy for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction usually has something physical behind it, particularly in older men. But psychological factors can be a reason in many cases. Homeopathy addresses the disease considering both the factors to treat it right.

Stress, tough work-life schedules, junk-food, sedentary habits and bioclocks gone “wide of the mark” have led to a host of lifestyle diseases - big and small. Erectile dysfunction is one among them.

Erectile dysfunction is a persistent or recurrent inability to attain, or maintain, adequate penile erection, until completion of sexual activity. Formerly called impotence, erectile dysfunction (ED) can affect men of all ages. The likelihood of one developing ED increases with age; however, men as young as 18-20 years of age too seek treatment for this disorder.


The prevalence of ED is underestimated as a lot of people do not seek medical attention. It is estimated that 1 in 5 men have ED. This is a large number although a lot less is reported because of various factors. Also, the incidence of ED increases with age. The percentage of the disorder increases three fold as age grows from 40 to 70. There may be various reasons for this and we shall discuss them shortly.

Cause of Erectile Dysfunction

The cause of erectile dysfunction is generally due to one of these two factors - psychological or physical.

Psychological causes

  • Stress - If one is under stress at work, home or due to troubled relationship with partner, it can cause erectile dysfunction or sexual weakness.
  • Depression - Those who are psychologically depressed for one or the other reason are at a higher risk for erectile dysfunction.
  • Anxiety - Getting anxious at trifles or for some or the other problem, real or imagined can also cause erectile dysfunction.
  • Performance anxiety – This result from anxiety related to sexual performance.
  • Other psychological causes include a history of sexual abuse, guilt about sexuality, and early homosexual experiences.

Physical causes

  • Heart disease - As the proper flow of blood is required to cause an erection, any disturbance in the heart function can cause blood flow to be impeded.
  • High Blood Pressure – It can also cause disturbance to the blood flow.
  • Diabetes - Diabetes can cause nervous weakness as well as disturbance in the blood flow.
  • Obesity - Increased body weight can also cause this problem as it decreases metabolism.
  • Drugs, alcohol or smoking - Any abuse of such toxic can also cause erectile dysfunction as it causes narrowing of arteries.
  • Drugs and medicines – Side-effect of many medicines like anti-depressants, anti-histamines and anti-hypertensives can cause erectile dysfunction.
  • Age - The problem increases with age. A lot of factors like obesity, slow metabolism, stress, hypertension and lack of exercise come into play with age.
  • Nervous disorders - A lot of nervous disorders like Alzheimer’s, Stroke, Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis can also cause ED.


  • Complete absence of erection or incomplete erection or inability to sustain the erection for sufficient time to have intercourse.
  • Erections may be too soft though remain for some length of time.
  • In alternative cases, the erections may be strong but very short lived.

Is Erectile Dysfunction treatable?

A common misconception is that erectile dysfunction is not treatable. This is not true. It is as much a treatable disease as any other. One often finds it difficult to express this disorder and seek timely treatment just out of embarrassment or hesitation.

Any of the above mentioned causes that may be the reason for erectile dysfunction should be treated forthwith. Once the underlying disease which is causing the problem is cured, erectile dysfunction will also get cured. Therefore, first and foremost advice for anyone suffering from this disease is to go out and discuss the problem with a doctor. Generally speaking, it makes sense that one should exercise regularly. This helps not only in improving blood circulation but also in keeping one’s weight in check. Those men who have the habit of smoking or drinking should quit these habits. Eating a natural and balanced diet will also go a long way in treating this problem naturally.

Conventional medication recommends psychotherapy, and exercises, to help increase blood flow and also release of hormones, which act as mood elevators, besides oral drugs and hormonal treatments to correct ED. These methods often fail to take care of the cause, the origin of the disorder - besides, they carry the risk of side-effects.

Homeopathy Helps

Homeopathy, a natural form of mind/body medicine, is ideally geared to treat and correct many of the underlying predispositions for erectile dysfunction (ED) - safely and gently, without side-effects.

Homeopathic treatment depends upon the manifestation of ED, along with personality or distinctive characteristics of the individual. It takes into consideration actual symptoms of ED along with individual personality traits like lifestyle, body build up, mental make up and temperament. That is how the homeopathic medicines are able to cure the root cause of the problem and address the problem in its entirety. An added benefit of homeopathic treatment is that it has no side effects at all.
