How to Overcome erectile dysfunction in middle and old age .

erectile dysfunction in middle age, erectile dysfunction due to old ageMany studies reveal that erectile dysfunction is very common in middle and old aged men. Sexual function sharply decreases in men who are above 50. Texts of Ayurveda describe this condition as “Jaraja Klaibya” or impotence due to ageing. There are various causes which lead to this condition. These are explained below.

  1. Atherosclerosis or hardening of arteries is the major cause. The small blood vessels which supply blood to male genital organ get damaged due to atherosclerosis. This reduces blood supply to penis which causes impotence.
  2. Stress is another cause of impotence in middle aged men. Job, finance, family all these contribute to psychological stress which leads to impotence.
  3. Diseases, which surface as age advances, also contribute to erectile dysfunction. Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, increased blood cholesterol etc are all common health conditions which affect sexual function in middle aged men.
  4. Apart from these smoking, consumption of alcohol, addiction to drugs, medications and sedentary lifestyle play a major role in decreasing the sexual function.

Ayurveda acharyas mention dhatu kshaya or degenerative process as the main reason for erectile dysfunction in middle and old age men. The Shukra dhatu, which stimulates and also helps in normal sexual function, tends to decrease as age advances. Decreased shukra dhatu affects level of testosterone and quantity of semen. This results in erectile dysfunction and low semen volume. Ayurveda acharyas recommend Vajikarana Therapy to slow down ageing process and boost the quality of dhatus. The Vajikarana herbs nourish the seven dhatus and strengthen the shukra dhatu.  The following tips are advised by ayurvedic physicians to keep the erectile dysfunction at bay in middle and old age.

  1. Adhere to healthy food habits which suit your dosha and agni (digestion and metabolism).
  2. Be physically active. Regular walking (brisk walk) daily for 30 minutes helps to keep aged men fit and improves blood circulation.
  3. Waking up early in morning and practicing yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercises help to reduce stress level.
  4. Watch your weight. Reduce weight if you are obese. Sthoulya or obesity is the main reason for erectile dysfunction.
  5. Strictly say no to drugs, smoking and alcohol. Vyasana or addictions to these cause erectile dysfunction.
  6. Sleep well. A good sleep always helps in quick rejuvenation.
  7. Undergo Vajikarana Therapy once in a year to strengthen the dhatus especially shukra dhatu.
  8. The potent aphrodisiac herbs in Vajikarana Therapy help to slow down aging process and also replenish the nutrients of tissues. These herbs boost the strength of dhatus.
  9. Vajikarana herbs lead to increased body strength and energy. They boost libido and help in erectile dysfunction.
  10. Men who are devoid of cholesterol, obesity or diabetes can opt for complete Vajikarana Therapy to boost their sexual strength and energy.
  11. Men who are diabetic or obese or have issues with blood cholesterol can opt for specially designed Vajikarana Therapy preparations which are devoid of ghee, honey or jaggery.
