Standard daily ED treatment by ED treatment Phoenix usually includes surgery, implants, or prescription drugs, but many people also prefer alternative options. One of the possible alternatives to standard therapies is homeopathic treatment.
Recent studies have found that some herbal remedies may improve certain aspects of ED. A number of herbs are used in Chinese medicine for the treatment of ED.
In a recent study published in the Journal of American Medical Association, researchers analyzed the effectiveness of a treatment using Chinese herbal remedies. The study used a random sample of adult patients with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.
Men were required to complete a 7-day self-assessment form that asked about their erectile dysfunction symptoms, including frequency of erection, loss of erection, and experience in sexual intercourse. Men were also asked to complete a medical history form and to complete a laboratory examination.
After seven days, the men were treated using a Chinese herb formulation called Panax Ginseng. The researchers found that the herb caused an improvement in blood flow to the penile area.
During the treatment, mean arterial blood pressure (PBAP) increased by three and a half millimeters. Mean total cholesterol levels were reduced by four percent. Finally, mean erectile functioning parameters improved by five percent from the time of treatment through the end of the seven-day course.
Another study looked at the use of an oil extract from the wild yam, which is believed to improve overall health and the functioning of the reproductive organs. It is believed to improve blood flow to the penis and to improve sperm count and quality. Further clinical testing is needed to determine whether this oil extract is safe and if it is effective in treating erectile dysfunction.
This is one of the few studies of and treatments that directly recommend the use of yang herbs as a dietary supplement. Other studies, however, do not support the claims.
One of the most promising forms of alternative treatments for ED is the use of pharmaceuticals, particularly ED medications with phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. These medications are known to stabilize blood pressure and to reduce stress levels. In recent years, they have been approved by the FDA for use in the treatment of patients who suffer from one or more episodes of impotence.
In addition, they have been approved for use in the treatment of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, premenstrual syndrome, and endometriosis. Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors are also available for women undergoing hormonal therapy.
Most physicians will not prescribe these drugs because of their potential side effects. However, there are additional potential benefits to be gained from them. If a patient is unable to become pregnant, he or she may experience longer periods of sexual dysfunction.
The ED medication may also promote a longer span of time between erections. Whatever the case, it is important to discuss all of the possible outcomes and options with your doctor before deciding which of the many ED treatments is right for you.
