Erectile dysfunction is not something that most men are comfortable talking about, which makes it an even bigger problem. Instead of seeking professional help, they try to cope with it on their own until eventually they have no other choice. Then they turn to dangerous drugs for treatment. Well, there are treatments for erectile dysfunction that are natural. But first we have to understand what erectile dysfunction is and what causes it.
To understand what causes erectile dysfunction, we first have to understand what causes an erection. Erections are actually caused by a series of events. The first thing that happens is that the senses are stimulated. This usually takes the form of visual stimulation but can also be physical in nature. The brain then sends messages through the body which in turn sends blood down to the down to the penis. This blood flow causes the *** to expand, which is what causes the erection.
Erectile dysfunction occurs when one of these processes does not work as it should. The first process is the nerve centers sending impulses to the brain, spinal cord and area around the penis. In some cases, there can be damage to the nerves themselves. This will stop the erection process right at the start. This damage can come from a number of sources such as disease, injury or even surgery. If a man has had any form of prostate surgery, there is a chance that nerves around the *** have been damaged. Some medications, such as blood pressure medicine and even decongestants or aspirin can also cause erectile dysfunction.
And then of course there are emotional factors. Stress can cause erectile dysfunction as well as the pressure to perform. Sometimes the problem is a chain event of circumstances. At the start, the problem may be related to a drug that has been taken for a particular illness. After drug therapy stops, the man is now faced with worry and concern that he'll be back to “normal" again. Sometimes this pressure can cause the problem to continue and things just snowball from there. Once a man's mind is more concerned with performance than simply enjoying time with his partner, it is very difficult to get back on track. This is when most men finally turn to dangerous drugs like Viagra.
Before turning to dangerous drugs, there are alternatives, many of them. For starters, there is psychotherapy. Sometimes just talking with a professional can work wonders.
