Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile Dysfunction is a type of sexual disorder characterized by the inability of a male to maintain or withhold the erection during sexual intercourse. It is a prevailing problem affecting almost 40% of the men population and many men above the age of 40 suffer from male.

Attaining an erection is not a simple process, it involves the brain, hormones, muscles, blood vessels, and proper mental health. About 70-80% cases, the cause of ED is due to physiological or psychological factors. Physical factors generally include heart disease, hypercholesterolemia, low testosterone levels, spinal injury, diabetes, obesity, excessive use of alcohol etc. Whereas, depression, anxiety, stress and relationship problems are psychological factors.

It is strongly believed that food habits can impact ED. Excessive intake of contradictory foods that are high on salt, or sugar, or are sour or heavy. Since a healthy mind is important during physical activity, an imbalance in the Vata doshas plays a key role. High vata doshas can lead to jealousy, fear, confusion, intoxication, anger, etc, and these negative emotions can ultimately cause excessive palpitation and sweating during physical activity and make one lose interest in the partner.
