Falsehoods Regarding Self Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Supplements and herbal remedies for ED are often not the answer

Among the most common natural remedies identified as possibly helping men with erectile dysfunction, there is only meager evidence to suggest their efficacy. Furthermore, you run a gamut of risks while choosing what supplements to take, and in what quantities to take them. A frequent reason that leads men to seek self-treatment is the embarassment of seeking medical advice over such a problem. But we guarantee that going to the doctor is the most healthy way of going about things- erectile dysfunction is often a sign of other health problems, including heart disease and diabetes that should be examined by a health professional before proceeding with treatment. 

Dangers of self-treatment for erectile dysfunction

Supplements available over-the-counter or at natural remedy stores often don’t include a comprehensive list of contents, meaning that there could be ingredients within the supplement with the potential to interact negatively with other medications you are taking. Furthermore, the internet and certain print publications are awash with natural remedies that promise success overcoming ED without advertising ingredients or side affects.
