We have other articles on this website to explain what erectile dysfunction is, the causes, treatments, etc. This article is focused more on natural home remedies to treat ED. So we won’t go into much of an introduction because that information is found elsewhere on the site.
Let’s get straight into some natural treatments.
Garlic is a herb or even a spice. Whatever it is, it helps with erectile dysfunction. Garlic contains Allicin which is known to maintain and improve blood flow. Although it’s a relatively small test, Dr. Graham Jackson who is a consultant cardiologist said that 6/7 volunteers who ate four cloves of garlic per day for three months showed a substantial improvement in erection quality.
The goal is for you to consume the garlic. We understand that most people will not appreciate its taste or it may be too intense for them.
There are different ways you can counteract this problem, but the goal is to eat three or four cloves of garlic every day. If you find the taste too overbearing or overwhelming, you can head over to your local supermarket where you can get pickled garlic cloves in a jar.
Because they have been pickled, they are much softer in texture and almost tasteless, depending on what they have been pickled in or with. I find that it is so much easier to consume garlic in this way.
Another thing you could do is, cook the four cloves in a pan with butter. Do not overcook them and use a low flame. Let them turn golden brown, and you may include some herbs or spices into the mix to alter the flavor and make eating them more manageable.
If you don’t like the idea of eating real garlic cloves, you could quickly get hold of garlic powder or paste. Mix it with some cayenne pepper powder and eat a teaspoon of this before bedtime.
The most comfortable option, less time-consuming, less messy and much more bearable way is to take garlic in the form of a supplement. This way, you get all the benefits and zero taste.
Almonds are a known and certified aphrodisiac. It has been used for a very long time by ancient people all the way up until this very day. Almonds are high in vitamin E, Zinc, Manganese, and Copper. This all helps with improving blood flow and is even great for skin and nails.
Almonds have other benefits aside from helping with erectile dysfunction, such as they improve cognitive function and memory.
Or you could just get powdered almonds and mix a teaspoon into a glass of warm milk, and drink it before you go to sleep.
What I have seen my mother do is soak some almonds in water overnight. The next morning you can rub them with your finger and thumb, and the skin will peel off in a second. Because they have been soaked in water, they will become softer and smoother to eat. Usually, consume them about an hour before you sleep every day.
Or you can just eat them and treat them like regular nuts because that’s what they are. Keep doing this for a few weeks, and you will notice a change in your erection quality.
Onions are another well-known aphrodisiac amongst the people in the Indian subcontinent. And they even help in treating for involuntary semen loss during sleep etc.
I’m sure you all know the various ways you can eat onions. If you have a diet which is rich in onions, you probably do not need to incorporate any additional onion into your life.
But for those of you who hardly eat onions, you could easily slice a couple of white onions, slightly cook them to golden brown in butter. Eat them before dinner daily, and you could use some honey or golden syrup to make the whole incident more pleasant.
If you don’t want actually to consume the onion itself, you could cut it and soak it in water, drink the water three times a day for up to one month.
Carrots have a high Beta-carotene content, and Chinese herbalists swear by their erectile dysfunction treating abilities. Carrots are also aphrodisiacs for men. The shape of them would even be an aphrodisiac for women, I’m sure!
You could eat them raw, just wash them and use the potato peeler to remove the carrots from their dry skin. Or, you could cut it into slices and add it to a salad which you should eat daily.
You could also grate them and eat them as a garnish or turn them into a smoothie.
Blend three regular sized carrots, three celery stalks, beetroot and a few garlic cloves together, and you will have a potent concoction which includes garlic, which we mentioned before. Drink this juice regularly, once or twice a day and it will help your ED.
Pomegranate is a heavenly fruit. It is rich in antioxidants, so it contributes to reducing stress, improves blood flow and treats against erectile dysfunction. It increases nitric oxide levels which are what’s responsible for the improved blood flow.
Pomegranate juice has been dubbed “natures Viagra.” And it’s no surprise because research has proven its efficiency and effectiveness. Many studies confirm pomegranate to be extremely useful. The only problem is that it ‘s hard to get hold of as a fruit and very expensive as juice.
You want to make sure you get 100% sure pressed and squeezed rather than from concentrate. Which can prove to be very pricey? One alternative you can use is called the Male Extra supplement.
It is the only male enhancement supplement to help with erectile dysfunction that uses the active ingredients from pomegranate as its primary key ingredient.
6. Pelvic Floor Exercises (Kegels)
Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles of your body is one way to help stop erectile dysfunction and restore it back to its former glory. Pelvic floor exercises, according to studies will provide a long-term solution because they strengthen the muscles responsible for weak erections.
Pelvic floor exercises are also called Kegels and involve the contraction and relaxation of the muscles involved in stopping urine flow. They are very easy to do, you can do them right now as you read this.
It is essential to learn how to do Kegels correctly as there are various forms which will all help with ED. You can learn the best and proper methods and techniques, along with the correct regime of doing them from Jack Grave in his Ejaculation Guru Program.
Oh… By strengthening your pelvic floor muscles, you will also be able to last longer in bed as well as having rock hard erections. So, there is more than one benefit to doing Kegels.
7. Korean Red Ginseng
Ginseng is a root/bark which comes in many different forms with slight variations. Korean Red Ginseng apparently comes from Korea but is also referred to as Asian or Chinese Ginseng.
The Journal of Urology studied its effects on 45 gay men, 900 mg supplements of ginseng over eight weeks, and the results were phenomenal when compared to the control group who were given a placebo. It showed that Korean Red Ginseng is exceptionally effective at treating symptoms of erectile dysfunction.
Take Red Ginseng three times a day at a dose of 600 to 1000 mg. It will be terrible for you here in the West to source the raw product, so you will have to resort to supplements.
Instead of finding each of these ingredients separately, you can opt for specific male enhancement supplements which will help you with erectile dysfunction from home. We recommend either VigRX Plus, Male Extra, ExtenZe or ProSolution Plus Pills. Each of these contains a variety of potent natural herbal ingredients carefully combined to give you relief from erectile dysfunction by resulting in rock hard erections.
L-Arginine, as you have probably guessed (especially if you’re a gym goer) is an amino acid. It helps increase nitric oxide levels inside your body naturally which in turn increases blood circulation and thus giving you better erections.
According to studies done by the British Journal of Urology, men who take 5g of L-arginine daily were able to alleviate their erectile dysfunction drastically.
You could eat foods rich in L-arginine such as meats, nuts, and seeds or you could take it in the form of a supplement. VigRX Plus, Male Extra, ExtenZe and ProSolution Plus Pills all contain L-arginine and other similar and highly active ingredients, so you do not need to get hold of five or six different supplements, instead just stick with one of the ones mentioned.
Ginger, is a great aphrodisiac that works to give you hard erections and has potent aphrodisiac effects. It is useful in treating premature ejaculation as well as providing impotence relief.
Gingerol, Shaogol, and Zingiberene which are all three active components contained in Ginger, all help to stimulate and improve blood circulation.
Ginger has many ways of being consumed; you can make a herbal tea and add a spoon of Ginger powder to it. Try to drink two or 3 cups daily.
You could also consume it with a tablespoon of honey to make the taste more bearable and drink it 2 to 3 times a day for a couple of months.
10. Penis Pump
Doctors have been prescribing penis pumps to patients suffering from erectile dysfunction for a long time now. The pump provides a vacuum around the penis and draws blood into it via a concentration gradient.
Penis pumps are very efficient at helping to treat erectile dysfunction. You can do it from the comfort of your own home, and penis pumps are readily available and very safe if the instructions are followed, and precautions are met.
There are two main types of a penis pump, water-based and air-based. Water-based penis pumps are not recommended as they are quite dangerous and less effective than Hydro pumps.
