FIRST, IF THIS POST IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO POST, MODERATOR, PLEASE DELETE IT. I JUST DO NOT KNOW IF I CAN ASK THIS TYPE OF QUESTIONS ABOUT HERB HERE.

Question of men:

I am looking for an over-counter herbal supplement that can be used as a substitute for Erectile Dysfunction or for Men's Performance Enhancement, as a substitute for Viagra, Levitra, Cialis or drugs like that. My doctors will not prescribe me any medications because my blood work is normal-it did not show anything that the doctor has to put me under medicine.

So, I went to different pharmacies, but because herbal supplements are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the US, so none of the pharmacists recommended me anything.

So, I am asking men here: If you have tried or know any herbal supplement that can be used for Erectile Dysfunction or for Men's Performance Enhancement, can you recommend me any ? You can Private Message me if you don't feel like talking about it publicly.

The only herbs I am aware of are Yohimbe, (a friend of mine raves about it but from what I can tell it's not a much recommended remedy) and the much safer Epimedium : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epimedium but I wouldn't know how effective that stuff is.

But generally speaking, ED in most cases has psychological causes so asking for herbal remedies may not fix the root of the problem.

Have you tried any of the following: watercress leaves, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, avocado pear? (All eaten). Lycopodium, agnus, conium, and caladium. I'm female but have numerous texts on this... all the supplements are eaten.

Goodluck!

Gingko, Zinc and Ashwagandha (aka Indian Ginseng - Withania somnifera) according to my alt medicine catalogue. Which also recommends against Yohimbe as it can be dangerous even in small doses. You may get a sudden and serious drop in blood pressure or hallucinations among other things.....

Apparently.

Oh - Arginine and Horny goat weed !!! I guess that's why they gave it that name....This is a most interesting catalogue.... I am reading a section I rarely look at - because despite my name here, I too am female, so have no personal experience....

Watermelon.... which apparently creates arginine when you eat it....

Are you referring to conium maculatum? The only safe form of intake is in homeopathic dilution, because this plant, also known as poison hemlock is, as the name suggests, deadly poisonous!!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conium

Kegel exercises (yes, exercising your perineum, or pelvic floor) are also very effective for men with erectile dysfunction. Strangely enough, there are almost a dozen self-help books on the subject in German, but only one book in English which is written for professionals. I don't think that German men are more prone to have this problem, though... apparently the mindset is here to take things in your own hands (no pun intended).

Perhaps you know someone who can translate the exercises. Here's the page, in any case:

The herbs I know are MACA & Ginseng- Korean & Chinese Ginseng. You can even find Maca drinks & snacks at the health food stores- even Maca chocolate bars! :) Herb Pharm makes a great male tonic herbal formula that I have heard works wonders. They are a first rate company with quality products. It really depends on the cause of the ED. Is it physical, emotional, mental, spiritual or a combination? There are also flower essences for it. FES & Desert Alchemy make elixirs to help.

OOps just noticed that you are asking men! Sorry! I did work in a health food store (Wild Oats) in the vitamin department for over 7 years. I sold formulas with men & to men all day long, so I got a lot of feedback from them about what worked...
