If you’re a guy with Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, you have many treatment options. Millions of men have found relief with one of the several FDA-approved prescription ED drugs on the market, and some have been helped with therapy treatments for ED or even with surgery. The good news is that there may also be some “natural” treatments, including dietary and other lifestyle tweaks, that can help men with ED take back their power.
Taking care of your overall physical and emotional health is the best thing you can do for yourself, no matter what’s causing your ED. Of course you’re at an advantage if you do know the cause. Sometimes ED can be caused or aggravated by nutritional issues such as a potassium deficiency.
Your doctor or other qualified health professional can help you determine if there is some underlying nutritional factor. Even if there doesn’t seem to be any specific nutrient deficiency causing your ED, though, you are almost certainly making the problem worse if you eat a generally lousy diet that’s high in “bad” fats and refined sugars. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle and have lots of unresolved stress in your life, these can compound the problem.
A medical work-up may very well be necessary to figure out the underlying cause of your ED, but meanwhile, you can make a series of small changes to your diet and lifestyle. There is no miracle cure, no silver bullet that will magically solve your erectile challenges. But you might be surprised at some of the things that can help improve the situation, with or without the medical options mentioned above.
