Minnesota Erectile Dysfunction Doctor
Holistic Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common male sexual problem that can cause distress and frustration. It refers to the inability to achieve or maintain an erection firm enough for sexual activity. Although ED is often associated with aging, it can affect men of all ages and has become increasingly common in recent years. While medical treatments like Viagra and Cialis are effective, they may have side effects that are not suitable for everyone. If you're looking for a natural support for ED, many holistic treatments can help.
Diet Changes and Nutritional Imbalances
Eating a healthy, balanced diet can also improve sexual health. Frequently, patients suffering from ED are lacking essential nutrients. One of the best ways to improve sexual health is with specific nutrients, such as zinc, vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids. Zinc is essential for testosterone production, while vitamin D helps increase blood flow. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation, improving blood flow to the penis. Some of the best foods to eat for ED include leafy greens, fatty fish, nuts, and seeds. The only way to know if you have any nutritional deficiencies is through proper laboratory testing, like we do at the Pain and Brain Healing Center.
There are also a variety of herbal supplements that can help to improve sexual function in men with ED. Some of the most popular herbs for ED include ginseng, horny goat weed, and maca. These herbs work by improving blood flow and increasing testosterone levels.
Lifestyle Changes and Managing Stress
Like many health problems, managing stress and changing certain aspects of our lives is crucial to treating conditions holistically. Stress significantly contributes to ED, so finding ways to manage stress is crucial for improving sexual function. Meditation, yoga, and deep breathing exercises can all help to reduce stress and improve your overall wellbeing. Treatments for sleeping problems may also help treat ED. An Adrenal Stress Index test measuring four points of Cortisol throughout the day can evaluate how stress is affecting your physiology. Besides Cortisol other hormones need to be tested, such as DHEA, total testosterone, free testosterone and estradiol. Imbalances in hormones can be addressed through diet and herbal support. Surprisingly, one of the most important hormones to test in ED is insulin. Insulin resistance is one of the primary drivers of vascular changes and low testosterone. Correcting insulin resistance and pre-diabetes lead to remarkable elevations in total testosterone and increased penile blood flow. This is achieved through dietary changes and nutritional support. The starting point is proper hormonal testing of all these hormones, like we do at the Pain and Brain Healing Center.
