There are a variety of viable treatment options available to men experiencing ED. Be sure to consider the underlying causes for your symptoms when deciding which course of action to take. Read to learn about some of the most common effective treatments for erectile dysfunction.

Counseling

Many men experience erectile dysfunction as a result of stress, anxiety, or a loss of confidence. In these cases, sex therapy can provide healing without the use of drugs or invasive procedures. Sex therapy, much like general counseling, can help you iron out any issues you are having with your partner, helping to bring the two of your closer together. Successful counseling can leave partners with a stronger relationship and men with stronger erections!

Panax Ginseng

Sometimes referred to as the herbal equivalent of Viagra, panax ginseng also goes by the name of red ginseng and has been the subject of a number of studies. Researchers have concluded that there is ‘suggested evidence’ for its effectiveness, and queries into its properties are ongoing. It is anti-inflammatory in nature and has shown positive results in those with high levels of lipids in their blood by increasing their blood flow and circulation. It has also been used for increasing lung health, for conditions caused by inflammation, such as metabolic syndrome, and it can be taken without a prescription. Dosages tend to range from between 600 to 1,000 milligrams taken three times a day. As is the case with any and all medications and supplements, it is best to consult with your physician for the recommended usage.

Acoustic Wave Therapy

When the underlying cause of ED is a lack of sufficient blood flow, AWT is an excellent, non-invasive treatment option. AWT utilizes high-frequency sound waves at a low intensity to improve a man’s ability to achieve and sustain an erection by stimulating the development of new blood vessels and nerve tissue. Approximately 75% of men report seeing a positive benefit to acoustic wave therapy and it has also been proven to be an effective treatment for Peyronie’s Disease, a condition that creates curvature of the penis.
