Impotence is the inability of a male to achieve an erection or maintain an erection. It is very common and can be helped.
There are many causes of and cures for impotence. There is primary impotence when the male has never been able to achieve an erection. In such cases clinical investigation is essential because there could be physiological problems. Hormonal levels may be insufficient, blood flow may be restricted so it is unable to reach the penis; there may be return valve issues at the base of the penis that usually keep the blood in the penis, problems with hormones, problems with initiation hormones in the brain and psychological problems that may be blocking sexual desire.
Since I am naturopath as well as a clinical hypnotherapist and sex therapist, I take a full medical history with retarded ejaculation and may order blood tests so that we get a full picture of what is happening with you. Sometimes I prescribe some herbs or make other recommendations some including referrals for medications. I may even ask for further physiological investigations from specialists. Many men can be afraid or embarrassed to talk to other people about impotence problems but we provide a safe, confidential, professional environment to help you.
Secondary impotence can occur when sexual function has previously been satisfactory and then the male begins to experience the lack of ability to get or retain an erection. This may be due to physical changes, lowered hormones, illness, organ dysfunction, vascular collapse and complications, ageing and psychological problems due to physical or psychological trauma.
In cases where there are psychological reasons for erectile dysfunction then I would use sex therapy and hypnotherapy to help change your mindset and allow you to gain or regain erectile function. This can prove very effective. Many techniques can be employed within the clinical environment to provide erectile dysfunction treatment to help you go forward.
