Erectile Dysfunction: Expert Lists Ayurvedic Ingredients Used For Treatment

3rd Edition of HealthCare Heroes Awards 2023

Did you know that almost 40% of the male population in India suffers from erectile dysfunction? Yet, it is often neglected, as people feel embarrassed to talk about the issue or seek help. Men with erectile dysfunction have trouble during sexual intercourse. It is a sexual disorder that occurs when a man is unable to get or keep an erection strong enough for sexual activity.

The general concern for most men is the side effects of libido treatment. Relying on medicines may become a habit, or there may even be an increase in dosage. This is where Ayurveda comes in. Ayurvedic remedies have no side effects as they are chemical-free and aim to heal your problem's root cause.

We spoke to our expert Dr Nidhi Dagar, Chaudhary Braham Praksha Ayurvedic Charak Sansthan, who explained the process of overcoming erectile dysfunction with the help of Ayurveda.

Dr Dagar said, "To achieve an erection, you must have proper mental health, hormones, muscles, and blood vessels. Sexual activity can be hindered if any of these fail to work correctly. In most cases, the most common cause is physical and psychological factors."
