Erectile dysfunction & laser therapy

You heard it here first… it’s not the news about the fact that there is an epidemic of erectile dysfunction in men. Let’s connect some of the dots… 76% of men reporting erectile dysfunction are obese. Men in America are steadily becoming more obese and steadily becoming sterile – there is a direct connection between men accumulating too much estrogen in there body through diet and chemical toxicity exposure, and obesity and sterility: manufactured foods cause obesity. You have to clean up your diet and go on a cleanse. The adipose tissue in your body sets in motion estrogen production; excess estrogen promotes more obesity – round and round it goes…but the part I want to tell you about is that laser has been shown to help ED. Figure out the treatment…diet, exercise and laser on the shaft of the penis to increase blood flow!


Sexual health is important

Let’s face it, sexual health is important — testosterone levels should be checked on everyone!

Testosterone is an important part of every man’s health, and I suggest to my patients that they keep an eye on their levels, and normalize them if necessary. 

Alot of men have erection issues. Some can be helped by Tribulus Fruit and Ashwaganda Root. These two herbs may very well be two of the most important nutrients for every man over 40.

These are difficult herbs to get out of food sources so supplements are the best approach. As usual, I recommend a Paleo diet, eating plenty of steak, eggs, nuts & seed, and vegetables…but chances are that food just isn’t enough. As you age, hormones diminish, so we can use these herbs to help provide the hormones material.

These two herbs are included in the Wellness Essential for Men vitamin packets. I have heard of many male clients taking the Wellness Essential for Men packets by Metagenics and note improvements in 





  • mood
  • energy
  • sexual desire
  • erectile function
  • orgasm
  • sexual satisfaction








If your energy is really low, I suggest the Mitochondrial Renewal Kit by Xymogen in conjunction with the Wellness Essentials for Men. The Mitochondrial Renewal Kit contains Alpha-lipoic-acid, Resveratrol, and Arginine. Alpha-liopoic-acid can help men increase desire and stamina. 

  • Jump start your libido
  • Extend your endurance

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is often a problem with circulation. Because it is an early indicator of problems with blood flow, the presence of erectile dysfunction may forewarn future cardiac problems.
Various herbs and nutrients have been studied. The Asian Journal of Andrology (2007; 9(2): 241-4) studied the effect of
Korean red ginseng in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 60 subjects with erectile dysfunction. At the
end of the 12 week study, the group receiving 1000 mg of Korean Red Ginseng 3x per day had improvement of symptoms according to the five item version of the International Index of
Erectile Function (IIEF-5).

If ED is a concern for you, please feel free to discuss nutritional recommendations with me.
