What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, also known as ED, is the inability to achieve and sustain an erection for sexual intercourse. This condition is not considered normal at any age and is different from other problems that interfere with sexual intercourse, such as lack of sexual desire and problems with ejaculation and orgasm.

In order for erection to occur, the nerves of the penis must be functioning properly, blood circulation to the penis must be adequate, and there must be proper stimulus from the brain.  If something interferes with any or all of these conditions, a full erection is not possible.  Some men aren't able to get an erection at all.  Others can get one, but it's not hard enough for pleasurable intercourse, while others get a hard erection but lose it before or during sex.

According to the National Institutes of Health, a majority of men at some point in their life experience occasional failure to achieve erection which can occur for a variety of reasons such as drinking too much alcohol or from being extremely tired.  Failure to achieve erection less than 20% of the time is not unusual and medical treatment is rarely needed.  But the causes of this minor problem might lead to a permanent condition where failure to achieve erection occurs more than 50% of the time.  Once this stage of erectile dysfunction is reached, medical treatment is required to reverse the situation. 

The following men report occasional problems getting and maintaining erections:

  • 40% of men in their 40's

  • 52% of men aged 40 to 70

  • 70% of men in their 70's

At least 20 million American men have some degree of erectile dysfunction and about 1 in 10 adult males suffers long-term from ED.  Approximately 5 percent of 40-year-old men and between 15 and 25 percent of 65-year-old men experience erectile dysfunction on a long-term basis. 

Your risk for erectile dysfunction increase with the following factors:

  • Anxiety - where one incidence of ED spirals into fear of sexual failure resulting in ongoing ED

  • Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) - accounts for 50% to 60% of ED in men 60 and older

  • Depression

  • Diabetes - approximately 42% of men with diabetes have ED due to nerve damage caused by diabetes

  • Drinking Alcohol

  • Excess Weight

  • Guilt - caused by inability to satisfy a partner

  • High Cholesterol

  • Hypertension

  • Indifference to Sex

  • Infrequent Exercise

  • Kidney Disease

  • Low self-esteem

  • Low Testosterone Levels - caused by aging or problems with pituitary gland, thyroid gland, liver, or testes

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Recreational Drugs

  • Smoking

  • Spinal Core Injuries

  • Stress - related to career, money, relationship problems

Western medicine relies on aggressive prescription drugs and surgery to deal with many problems related to sexual dysfunction.  These methods generally address only the symptoms of erectile dysfunction and not the underlying causes.  As soon as you stop using the drugs, the problem returns!  And vascular reconstructive surgery for improving blood supply to the penis has a success rate of only 5%, is prohibitively expensive, and carries the risk of infection and complications.

Also prescription drugs often result in unwanted and even dangerous side effects.  For example, the combined side-effects of Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra include abdominal pain, abnormal vision, back pain, bronchitis, changes in vision, cough, diarrhea, dizziness, dyspepsia, fainting, flushing, gastroenteritis viral, gastroesophageal reflux, gastroesophageal reflux disease, headache, hypertension, influenza, itching or burning during urination, myalgia, nasal congestion, nasopharyngitis, pain in extremity, pain in limb, painful erection, prolonged erection (longer than 4 hours), rash, sudden loss of eyesight (NAION), upper respiratory tract infection, upset stomach, and urinary tract infection.  The use of Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra has also been linked to serious cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events: cerbrovascular hemorrhage, chest pain, hypertension, myocardial infractions, palpitations, pulmonary hemorrahage, stroke, subarachnoid and intracerebral hemorrahages, sudden cardiac death, tachycardia ventricular arrhythmia, and transient ischemic attack.

Non-medical methods of penis enhancement through exercise using weights, straps, rings, and pumps have proven destructive to muscle tissue.


Ayurveda, the science of life, prevention and longevity, is the oldest and most holistic and comprehensive medical system available.  Its fundamentals can be found in Hindu scriptures called the Vedas - the ancient Indian books of wisdom written over 5,000 years ago.  Ayurveda uses the inherent principles of nature to help maintain health in a person by keeping the individual's body, mind, and spirit in perfect equilibrium with nature.

India Herbs has a seasoned group of Ayurvedic doctors specialized in Vajikarana, one of the eight major specialties of Ayurveda.  Vajikarana is "a process or a drug, which make a man sexually as strong as a horse and able to copulate for long and frequently with many wives and partners."  Vajikarana prescribes the therapeutic use of various aphrodisiacs and tonic preparations for enhancing the reproductive capabilities and vigor of men while strengthening the body and overall well-being.
