Vitamins, Minerals, and Supplements
To cure impotence disease, zinc may be the most valuable nutritional supplement. According to clinical studies conducted at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, the testosterone levels of men given zinc supplements rose dramatically.
At the University of Virginia Medical School it was discovered that zinc can also diminish the pituitary gland’s production of prolactin a hormone that stops testosterone production. The dosage of zinc is 30 to 60 mg a day along with copper sebacate, 1 or 2 mg a day (take zinc and copper supplements at least two hours apart).
You can also take beta carotene, 25,000 I.U. two times daily, magnesium, 500 mg daily, and essential fatty acids (EFAs) for treating impotence. Both lycopene, a flavonoid found in red fruits and vegetables, especially tomatoes and watermelon, and arginine, an amino acid found in nuts and animal products (all meats), are also part of the holistic cure for impotence disease.
The hormone DHEA has been successfully used in treating impotence. Although it is available in some health food stores, it is recommended that this treatment be administered by a physician, after obtaining blood or salivary levels of DHEA. Men with a high risk of prostate cancer should not use DHEA.
One of the most powerful sexual stimulants ever discovered comes from a tree in Cameroon, Africa, and is called yohimbine. Like Viagra, yohimbine heightens potency and maintains erections by increasing blood flow to the penis.
Unlike Viagra, it does so by increasing the body’s production of the adrenal hormone norepinephrine, which is essential for erections. A Canadian study showed yohimbine to be especially effective for treating impotence in men with diabetes and heart disease.
Other herbs and supplements that can also contribute to enhanced sexual potency are:
• Damiana 2 to 4 ml, or 60 drops, daily; considered an aphrodisiac in Central and South America
• Ginkgo biloba 40 mg of a standardized extract three times daily; increases circulation, especially to the neurologic system
• Ashwagandha 300 mg daily; an Ayurvedic herb
• Panax ginseng 100 mg of a standardized extract two times daily; stimulates the endocrine system
• Siberian ginseng 400 mg of a standardized extract three times daily; supportive to the adrenal glands and helpftil with high stress
Mental and Emotional Health Recommendations.
Use affirmations for treating impotence. Be creative and use vivid imagery for the greatest effect. For example: “My penis is full and erect,” “There is an infinite supply of energy filling my penis,” or simply “My erection is hard and powerful.” Mental imagery in conjunction with reciting and/or writing these affirmations is extremely helpful.
In curing impotence, it helps to imagine some type of fluid (representing blood) filling an empty space (limp penis); or light filling a dark space. Or you might imagine your spouse or lover gently, slowly, and lovingly stimulating the largest erection you’ve ever had.
After all of the possible physical causes for impotence have been ruled out, ifyou’re not satisfied with the progress you’re making on your own, you might consider seeing a psychotherapist, or a sex therapist. Journaling is another option. The longer the problem persists, the more difficult it can be to treat on your own.
Social Health Recommendations.
It is particularly helpful to be able to discuss your feelings about your impotence with your spouse or sexual partner. If she or he is agreeable, try being physically intimate while knowing beforehand that you will not attempt to have intercourse. This relieves a lot of psychological pressure to perform and can eventually help to restore normal function.
Men are usually reluctant to acknowledge. and discuss the problem of impotence with their significant other. But their fears are almost always exaggerated, and once they “break the ice” the outcome is usually beneficial.
Being able to share feelings and spending enjoyable “play” time with your son, another young boy, your father, or a close male friend or relative, or joining a men’s group, might allow you the opportunity to more closely connect and bond with other men or feel your maleness more deeply. Although there are no scientific studies linking this type of social activity to the health of the prostate, it does make good sense from a bioenergetic standpoint.
