The Fundamentals

Impotence is the inability of a man to achieve or maintain an erection. Age has no specific etiological influence on sexual potency. Impotence may be tested by measuring nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT), by monitoring frequency and intensity of erections accompanying REM sleep. Several causes for impotency include anatomical, caused by genital defect; atonic, which results from paralysis of nerves supplying the penis; functional impotence, usually of a psychogenic disorder; central nervous system lesions, paraplegia, or diabetic neuropathy; pharmacological, caused from side effects of certain drugs and medications; and psychogenic, which results from emotional factors.

Erectile Dysfunction

mpotence affects some 30 million American men, with more than a million currently being treated in one way or another, including drugs and penile implants. Other less invasive means to help sexual dysfunctions and erection problems are with herbal supplements. Ginkgo biloba is best known for improving blood flow through the brain; however, it seems to boost blood flow into the penis, as well, assisting with erections. Clinical studies conducted on the use of Ginkgo as an aid to erectile dysfunction showed that 78% of men with impotence due to atherosclerotic clogging of the penile artery reported significant improvements with no side effects. Yohimbine hydrochloride, the active compound in the herb Yohimbe, has proven to assist in regaining erectile functions. The whole herb itself should be taken with care, as it is often accompanied by some rather unpleasant side effects. The yohimbine compound has no side effects. Wild Oats have for many years been considered a sexual stimulant for the human male, which may aid in attaining erection when erectile dysfunction is caused by stress or emotions. Other very useful herbs are Ashwaganda, used by Ayurvedic medicine practitioners to treat impotence and male infertility, and Saw Palmetto.
