Re: Alternative Medicine in Impotence
for stress related impotence i'd say the best bet is ginseng. it acts to improve the bodies reaction to stressors and helps to instill a feeling of well being. it has a mild testosterone effect in the body and also increases the amount of nitric oxide produced, which is the hormone asscociated with the engorgement of the penis to achieve an erection. another good bet is jasmine essential oil. it is a relaxing essential oil, which improves feelings of self confidence/ self esteem (feelings of inadequacy or fear are often linked to sexual disfunction) but is also a tonic to the male reproductive system, and so works well as an aphrodisiac both on an amotional and hormonal level.
just to get the whole picture, is it stress or more depression/ anxiety- this may make a difference to what may be best?
do you take any supplements at all (some can adversely affect sex drive, eg. 5-HTP in excess)?
