Top 5 Myths for Curing Erectile Dysfunction

In Men's Health, Sexual Health by Optimal Health MD

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a common health issue for men that causes both physical and psychological symptoms. It’s a condition that can leave a man feeling inadequate, demasculinized, and insecure. Treating ED can often lead to “curing” or reversing it. However, there are only certain treatments, like oral medications, testosterone and HGH treatments, shockwave treatment, penis pumps, surgery, and psychological counseling, that work. Knowing what treatments can cure or reverse ED is the first step to having the sex life you had in your youth. Knowing the myths about the cures for ED will keep you from wasting your time on treatments that just don’t work.

There are five well-known myths for curing erectile dysfunction.

Myth. The only treatments for ED are oral medications, such as Viagra, or surgery.

Although oral medications and surgery are good treatments for erectile dysfunction, they are not the only remedies for the condition. Treating the underlying cause of ED is most effective for curing ED. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart conditions, and other illnesses may find they are having trouble getting and keeping an erection. Once the underlying illness is treated properly, men with ED often find their condition improves. Other effective treatments for ED are penis pumps, psychological therapy, testosterone and HGH treatments, in addition to Shockwave treatments which can clear plaque and improve blood flow to the penis.

Myth. You can treat ED with herbal supplements, so you don’t have to see a doctor.

The fact is that there is no research to back this claim. Taking herbal supplements for erectile dysfunction is not only dangerous because they are not regulated by the FDA, plus the supplements may interfere with medications you may be taking for other health conditions. Furthermore, herbal supplements come with side effects. Always speak to your doctor before starting any herbal supplement regime.

Myth. Treatment for men with ED and diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart conditions is limited.

Even though you may not be able to take oral medications for your erectile dysfunction because the cause of the condition is due to an underlying illness, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or a heart condition, you can still treat ED effectively. This is especially true if you successfully treat the underlying medical cause.

Myth. ED cannot be “cured.”

ED can be reversed, especially if you follow a custom medical treatment plan designed by a certified physician. Losing weight, quitting smoking, and exercising are all very effective for reversing erectile dysfunction, thus improving your sexual health. In addition, many men have been able to have improvements from ED issues after beginning testosterone and HGH treatments. The latest shockwave treatment technology has also shown to be able to clear plaque and improve blood flow to the penis to decrease symptoms of ED.

Shockwave therapy for ED is a non-surgical procedure consisting of the delivery of low-intensity frequency to improve blood flow to the penis. Essentially, it helps in removing micro-plaque. This leads to the regeneration of new blood vessels from existing ones, which in turn allows proper blood flows into the penis. 

While many other ED treatment options are usually temporary and for “on demand” use, the positive effects of shockwave therapy could last for several years after treatment, without having to rely on expensive and dangerous drugs for every sexual encounter. 

Myth. Over-the-counter treatments are safe and effective.

There is no evidence proving that over-the-counter treatments for ED are safe and effective. In fact, they could do more harm than good. Always speak to a licensed doctor before starting any treatment for erectile dysfunction.

If you are having difficulty getting and keeping an erection, you may have erectile dysfunction. However, you are not alone, and the condition can be improved, especially if you have an underlying illness that is causing your ED.
