Why Erectile Dysfunction May be a Sign of a Bigger Problem

Erectile Dysfunction (ED)It is a subject that no man wants to talk about, but it definitely shouldn’t be ignored. Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a common problem and it may potentially be a sign of a much bigger problem. Over 65% of men over the age of 70 and 40% of men over 40 have ED. Sadly, most men won’t admit that there is a problem, so these numbers are probably considerably higher.

Many men who experience erectile dysfunction internalize it and blame themselves. They feel like they are less of a man, which can lead to less enjoyment in life and possibly depression. The stress and anxiety that is caused by ED will actually worsen the erectile dysfunction. The original incident could have been caused by a rough patch, but dwelling on the inability to perform will result in more incidents. It is a vicious cycle, especially when men refuse to seek medical help.

Your mental health is not the only thing at risk. ED is also an indicator that your blood vessels are not in perfectly healthy. This could be a warning sign that you are at high risk for cardiovascular disease. Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, blood vessels, nerves, emotions, and muscles. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a problem relating to any of these areas.

There are some of the psychological causes of erectile dysfunction


Our brains play a key role in triggering the series of physical events that will result in an erection. It all begins with the feeling of sexual excitement and a number of emotions or negative thoughts can affect those feelings.

These are some of the physical causes of erectile dysfunction:

Alcohol, tobacco use, surgery, and some medications can also affect your ability to get an erection. All of these reasons are why ED should never be ignored. If you are concerned about your performance abilities, it is necessary to speak to a physician in case it is a sign of something more serious.

Natural Remedies for Erectile Dysfunction

Significant depletion of the essential mineral zinc is associated with digestive disorders, diabetes, and certain liver or kidney diseases. These serious illnesses have been proven to lead to erectile dysfunction, especially for me over the age of 40. Fortunately, including more zinc in your diet can reverse the effects. Oysters, salmon, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, and dark chocolate are all high in zinc.

The herb ginkgo is also used for erectile dysfunction, particularly in people who experience sexual dysfunction as a side effect of various prescription drugs like antidepressants. It is known to relax sore muscles and enhance the blood flow to your penis.

ED is no laughing matter and should be treated with the same concern and care as any other medical issue. The first step is determining the cause and then seeking a treatment directed at the root of the problem.
