Impotence, Erectile Dysfunction


Impotence or erectile dysfunction refers to a man's absolute inability to obtain a penile erection even after proper stimulation. If the condition is not absolute, i.e.; either erections are not complete or there is an inability to maintain them long enough, then the condition in general is called 'penile dysfunction'.

Causes of Impotence, Erectile Dysfunction

  • In  majority of cases psychological reasons are implicated behind erectile dysfunction.
  • Vascular disease involving internal pudendal artery is thought to be one of the reasons for age related impotency.
  • A nerve injury or spinal cord injury may result in impotence.
  • Impotence may be an early symptom of diabetes mellitus, multiple sclerosis, tabes dorsalis etc.

Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

  • Inability to get an erection is usually the only complaint.
  • In cases of penile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and spermatorrhoea may be found.
  • Depression often accompanies impotence. Severe depression can lead to impotence and impotence can lead to depression. It works both ways.

Impotence, Erectile Dysfunction - Homeopathy Treatment & Homeopathic Remedies

Homeopathy offers some very good medicines to treat this condition. But for proper treatment a homeopath must probe into the psychological reasons behind the condition. A detailed case history is necessary, including not only the sexual history, but also his general medical history, physical and mental characteristics etc. It is not easy give long term results if a homeopath is unable to make a judgment as to 'What went wrong?'. Also the 'when', 'where' and 'how' need to be answered too. long with the medicine such patients often need psychological counseling, especially so, if there are marked depressive traits present. This counseling can be done by an experienced homeopath or by a trained psychologist.

Some of the medicines commonly indicated in erectile dysfunction symptoms are:

Agn., Anac., Ant. c., Arg. n., Arn., Ars., Avena, Bar. c., Berb. v., Calad., Calc. c., Camph., Carbon. s., Chin. s., Cinch., Cob., Con., Damiana, Dig., Diosc., Gels., Glycerin, Graph., Hyper., Ign., Iod., Kali br., Kali iod., Lecith., Lyc., Nat. m., Nit. ac., Nuph., Nux v., Onosm., Phos. ac., Phos., Picr. ac., Plumb. m., Sabal, Salix n., Selen., Sep., Sil., Staph., Strych., Sul., Thuja, Tribul., Yohimb., Zinc., Zinc. p.

The selection of medicine varies from cae to case, depending upon the symptoms of erectile dysfunction and its cause. But the good thing about homeopathic treatment of erectile dysfunction is that you don't need to pop-a-pil every time you desire some action. Once you regain your ability to attain an erection, you usually get it for good.
