Impotence: 3 Men Fix Problems in the Bedroom

Josh is over 70 and has a wife twenty years younger.  He first came in to the office because of diabetes, but after several visits he admitted he could no longer have a sexual relationship with his wife.  “I’m impotent,” he stated in his matter-of-fact way.  We discussed his problem at length and found that he just couldn’t maintain an erection.

A sexual relationship is more than just for reproduction.  It represents and acknowledges the intimacy and commitment between a husband and wife so it is an ongoing part of a healthy relationship.  In the past, it was considered “normal” to become impotent (a lot of folks don’t like that word, which means “not powerful,” so the doctors now have a new term: “erectile dysfunction”) with age and nobody thought treatment would be an option.  However, since the marketing of the drug Viagra there is a lot more attention paid to this problem.

Josh was on multiple medications for diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension.  All of these medications can lead to erectile dysfunction, so we started him on a diet and exercise program to normalize his numbers and be able to go off of the medications.  Within one year, he was off of all medications and his blood sugar and blood pressure were controlled – and he regained normal sexual function!  In this kind of case, the home cure works better than the prescription drugs, such as Viagra.

Erectile dysfunction is a symptom of vascular disease in other areas of the body.  If the penile blood vessels don’t work properly, then your arteries will be having trouble in other areas – like the heart and brain.  The process of fixing the erectile dysfunction will also correct atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) in the rest of the body.  It’s a win-win!

The other issue with Josh was his medications.  The first thing I do when a man comes in with this problem is to look at any prescription drugs he may be taking; erectile dysfunction is a common side-effect.  In such a case, it would be best to work with a doctor who knows how to help you get off the medication, rather than adding another one.  As you add medications, you multiply their inherent risks.

Very often the first thing men ask about when dealing with impotence is

Removing Sexual Disorders and Improving Intimacy… Naturally

Men let’s talk straight about “sex” and, please, women listen in…

Fact is men who have sexual performance concerns will turn to anything for a solution, which is the reason arousal drugs sales are so incredibly successful. Yet, they are far from being a cure.

Read the warning labels. These drugs are only meant for short-term use, at best, and even when properly prescribed these drugs can kill you. To make matters worse, the easy availability of these drugs and their bootleg counterfeits has become a huge public health concern.

Read on to learn a better way.

Just considering the sheer numbers of men and women who continue to suffer from sexual performance problems is startling.

In a 1992, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Conference on Impotence estimated between 10-20 million men in the U.S. have Erectile Dysfunction (ED). That estimate jumps to 30 million if you count men with partial erectile dysfunction.

Taking prescription drugs is a real problem in our American culture. Even the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported 106,000 patients die from properly prescribed drugs every year and more than 2,000,000 suffer serious side effects1. The moral of this story is, “Say no to drugs.”

Before I reveal some proven safe and effective ways to increase your sexual prowess and all that, it’s vital I point out that if you’re frustrated by sexual performance, you may be unaware of “deeper underlying health concerns.

A major study carried out in four countries revealed prevalence of male impotence increased by 10% per year of age. Additionally, increased risk was associated with diabetes, heart disease, lower urinary tract symptoms, heavy smoking, and depression2.

In this study, sexual impotence increased with age from 2% in 18 year old men up to an amazing 39-48% in men 70 years and older3.

According to the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted6 major disease rates remain high, the cost of medical care is the highest in the world and all this is due to under-nutrition — NOT drug deficiencies.

In the ultimate search for a natural cure, you must consider your whole lifestyle, diet and environment and not just your symptoms — no matter what they may be.

If you suffer from sexual impotence, you could pop a Viagra, or similar PDE-5 inhibitor class drug. If you survive the side effects, at best you’ll have a 35% chance you’ll be able perform sexual intercourse, despite your remaining in poor overall cardiovascular health (the likely cause of your sexual disorder).

Or, you could take the nutritional approach using whole plant-based foods scientifically proven to have a “natural” overall healing benefit.

As far as which “magic pill” leads to successful intercourse faster, patients reported that:

  • Only 35% treated with sildenafil succeeded within 14 minutes
  • Only 21% treated with vardenafil within 10 minutes
  • Only 16% treated with tadalafil within 16 minutes

Viagra (sildenafil ), made by Pfizer is similar to Eli Lilly’s Cialis (tadalafil) and GlaxoSmithKline’s Levitra (vardenafil). All three of these drugs work the same way and have the same toxicity profiles.

The big question is, is it really worth the risk? Apparently, millions of people think so, but do they even have half the facts?

By the way, PDE stands for Phosphodiesterase. PDE is a natural enzyme that is needed to break down nitric oxide in your tissue cells. PDE-5 Inhibitors block that natural breakdown of nitric oxide, prolonging erections for unnaturally long periods of time.

Nitric oxide is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate ejaculation, maintain erection and also helps your eye “retina” to expand and contract, as well as many other biological functions.

Are There Any Good Medical Uses For PDE-5 Inhibitors Other Than Risky Recreational Drugs?

One medical use does seem promising for those patients who had radiation therapy for prostate problems. It appears if the patients use a PGE-5 inhibitor drug within 18 to 36 months after prostate radiation therapy, then they’ll have a better chance of restoring erectile function4. There you have it, a medical use. BUT, they are NOT designed to be like “sex candy.” These are serious prescriptive medications.

Here are some of the extra risks PDE-5 inhibitors bring to your bedside:

  • Headache pain
  • Flushing of the skin
  • Indigestion problems
  • Sinus issues
  • Back pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Diarrhea

Very sexy guys . . . NOT!

PLUS, these arousal drugs can also cause a sudden drop in blood pressure and trigger heart attack, stroke, chest pain, heart palpitations and SUDDEN DEATH, which is really NOT the way to go!

As I mentioned before, the PDE-5 inhibitor drugs block PDE enzymes from doing their normal biological function. PDE is involved in the constriction and dilation of your eyes’ retina, allowing you to focus properly.

That’s why vision problems is one of other “bizarre and totally unwanted effects” of these arousal drugs: PDE-5 Inhibitors block the enzyme that regulates a critical function in “all your cells,” not just the penis.

This adverse side effect is so serious they have a new warning label for it called “non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy” (NAION).

Short of experiencing sudden and total blindness while making love, many men taking these sexual arousal drugs also experience hallucinations of blue-green colored halos around objects for several hours accompanied by eye pain.

Using Natural Herbs Can Provide The Same Benefits, But Without The Risks

Here’s a hand full of common remedies people have used successfully for thousands of years to help with sexual disorders.

The point here is to address your underlying cause of sexual impotence first, which is usually “lack of cardiovascular health,” then consider using proven natural remedies instead of dangerous designer drugs like PDE-5 Inhibitors.

By properly using natural plant-based remedies such as Ashwagandha, Horny Goat weed, Maca, Yohimbe root, Ginseng, Catuaba bark, Tongkat Ali, Tribulus, Passion flower and Miura Puma, along with healthy lifestyle modifications you can ignite your sexual libido, boost youthful vitality and transform overall health.

Natural aphrodisiacs are reported to work great with little or no risk. Always ask your doctors about “unexpected reactions” with the medications you may be already taking and never suddenly stop taking a prescription unless under a physicians care.

Recapturing your sexual prowess using herbal aphrodisiacs is safer, less expensive and they work with you and your mate in a “natural” way, which sexually active people report is more intimate.

Artificially stimulating your sex impulse by blocking brain, tissue and whole body chemistry with drugs is not to be taken lightly. Death from using PDE-5 inhibitor drugs are rarely reported, but the risks are real.

Keep in mind, sexual impotence is a sign of a weakened circulatory system. The same biological factors causing erectile dysfunction (ED) are the same factors that cause heart disease and risk of heart attack. Erectile dysfunction (ED) usually appears 1 to 5 years before more obvious signs of cardiovascular health disease of which the next sign can be death.


Whatever problem you are facing, work through it as a couple. Not just figuratively, but literally. It’s easy to begin to feel very alone when you’re at odds with your partner. But, by simply holding hands with your partner can make you feel loved and supported enough to get through whatever unsexy problem falls in your path.

The Whole Hearted Truth

The biggest risk people take with their health is by simply NOT taking control of it. Taking control can be fun and educational. You wouldn’t tell your child to make an important decision that will affect the rest of his or her life without looking into the matter completely, now would you? Then, why would you?

The key to renewed sexual vitality is to first love yourself enough to strengthen those primal healing connections naturally, without drugs.

Improving your sexual health means you need to nurture your health at the cellular level first. Healthy cells give you healthy organs, sexual drive and overall superior health and vitality. It couldn’t be simpler!

Now that you know you can have renewed sexual vigor and vitality, start investing whole heartedly in your relationship with a more endearing, positive and intimate manner.

It is a good idea is a to talk to your health professional about curing “the real cause” of your sexual impotence before you risk your health, vision and life on resorting to these popular arousal drugs.

It may also surprise you to know that countless males have sexual impotence because of adverse effects of “other prescriptive drugs” like SSRs, antidepressants and even asthma breathers.

As you eliminated all other possibilities, the real cause will become more obvious.

Truth is you may be suffering from heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol levels or other conditions that would NOT make you a safe risk even for just one night of chemically induced sex.

High Risk Sex Vs No Risk Sex

They say even if you smoke, or were a smoker, wear glasses or are over the age of 50, that you could go blind within 24 hours of popping a Viagra. Why even take the risk when there are proven ways to help your situation improve naturally?

On the other hand, if you’re “un-lucky” enough to experience some of these serious side effects you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

So, if you’re planning on having sex with arousal drugs, then make sure you not only have an eager date, but that you’re also able to secure a good lawyer, too. Or, maybe just date a good lawyer who’s willing to take your case on contingency.

Wait there’s more! The FDA just issued another health alert concerning Viagra, Cialis and Levitra’s (All PDE-5’s) adverse effects. Sudden hearing losshas been reported by enough men that they had to make more label changes. I imagine there must have been an awful lot of lawsuits to make that happen.

Think of it from your mates point of view: you got dizzy passed out, woke up with a headache whining about blue fuzzy halos everywhere as your ears ring, your hearing stops, you go blind and, finally, you have heart palpitations and suddenly die of a massive stroke. Was it worth it?


Blind, deaf and paralyzed . . . Hmmmm, you know there is a better way!

Taking control of your real biological age—not your age in years—can mean the difference between enjoying sex at 50, 75 or at 100.

Making smart dietary choices, using the simple plant-based remedies and enjoying walks together can cure and transform your love life faster than you think.

Sexual disorder or dysfunction  is NOT part of the “normal” aging process.

While enhancing your sex life imagine turning-back your biological age too.

Improve your cell health and everything else quickly follows suit.

Healthy living backed up by a mostly plant food-based diet is the best way to ensure strong sexual performance levels throughout your entire lifespan5,6.
