Impotence is the inability of a man to achieve or maintain an erection is a condition that most often results from mental or emotional problem, perhaps anxiety in general or about a particular relationship or sexual situation. The whole area of sex drive is a major subject in its own. There are often physical causes of persistent infertility, but libido can be improved in many ways.
Home remedies for Impotence
Aromatherapy - Due to the subtle yet profound impact that aromatic essential oils can have on our moods and emotions, they can play a very positive part in reducing the effects of stress on libido. One obvious way to use them is in the bath; another may be to get your partner to give you a massage with diluted essential oils (2.5 per cent dilution in a carrier oil), this should be with the aim of creating close contact without the pressure of needing to "perform" - if making love does result that's fine, just don't make it a condition of the massage!
Suitable oils to consider include Sandalwood (which is often liked by men as well as women), Jasmine, Neroli and Ylang Ylang. These are all likely to have a relaxing and uplifting effect. One factor in choosing an oil is because you like the smell; this may seem desirable generally but in this kind of problem it is obviously essential.
Herbalism - The herbal approach should be to look at boosting vitality and better health. Many herbs that may help with problems of impotence are thus tonics; they may have other actions over time, and so only use the suggested herbs for a short period, say 3 weeks, before taking a break or seeking professional advice.
Where tension is a major factor, try using Oat straw (Avena sativa) in tablets or up to 2.5 ml of the tincture twice daily. If exhaustion or depressions are more significant, then take teas of either Damiana (Turnera diffusa) or Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis): these are both tonics and Damiana in particular is valuable in toning the male hormonal system. Another possibility is Ginseng, which helps our systems adapt better to excess stress. This is available in tablet or liquid form - there are really three kinds, with varying effects: Asiatic (Panax schinseng) which is more stimulating, American (P. quinquefolium) which is more relaxing, and Siberian (Eleutherococcus senticosus) which is an unrelated plant with similar tonic properties.
Ginseng remedies should generally be avoided by people with very high blood pressure, without first seeking professional herbal advice.
Homeopathy - The best results will be found by seeing a professional homeopath, since there are so many factors which will determine the best home remedy for impotence. Some examples are -
Argent Nit: a good remedy for impotence where there is a lot of apprehension or fear, in this case about a relationship or sexual situation.
Sepia: remedy for loss of sex drive and lowered interest in your partner and the relationship. Good for slightly older people.
Naturopathy - Vitamins E, B and C are beneficial.
Exercise and also adequate rest are both important and splashing warm and cold water around the pelvic area will stimulate circulation.
