ED or erectile dysfunction is a common problem faced by men during their reproductive years. The condition causes sexual dysfunction when a man cannot attain an erection and retain it for long when he manages to attain it. Stress, lifestyle and certain medications and conditions are responsible for this condition.
Many men who suffer from erectile dysfunction are scared and embarrassed to admit it, let alone treat it, as there are many personal as well as social repercussions associated with this condition. If this is the case with your life partner, here are some ways by which you can treat the problem at home and stay away from frustration and disappointment.
Garlic is a bulb that is known to increase the blood circulation in the body. The allicin that is present in garlic has antioxidant powers that help in strengthening the blood flow to the sexual organs.
Three to four cloves of garlic must be taken for three months regularly. The cloves can be fried in cow’s ghee in a low flame until it turns golden brown and the cloves consumed every day to get the same result. Cow’s ghee removes the heat from garlic, but retains the aphrodisiac qualities. After three months, noticeable difference can be found in sexual performance.
Walnut is a dry fruit that benefits the health of male sexual organs greatly. The nutrients that are present in walnut such as zinc, iron etc. are needed for sexual performance and optimum function of the male sexual organ. Walnut also contains an amino acid, arginine which aids in the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps in the dilation of blood vessels and more blood flows to the sexual organs, thereby treating ED.
When walnut is mixed with honey, its potency becomes double fold. This is because honey too is a natural aphrodisiac and has the capacity to increase nitric oxide levels in the blood. Honey is also rich in vitamins B,E and zinc, which are required for sexual health and performance. Take 3 ounces of honey and take it along with walnuts every day for great results.
