Hypnotherapy for Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile dysfunction, also referred to as impotence, is the medical term for when a man who cannot get or maintain an erection that is firm enough to exercise sexual intercourse. Most men suffer from this at some point in their lives.

Erectile dysfunction may be caused by different factors. It may be due to drug intake, neurogenic disorders, psychological causes, surgery, caversonal disorders, or even ageing. Impotence may be caused by serious medical conditions like kidney failure, diabetes, or multiple sclerosis. Other health conditions that may cause impotence are high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, Parkinson’s disease, and metabolic syndrome.  It is always best to be checked out by your GP as soon as the issue arises.

Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

Symptoms of impotence may include one or more of the following:

  • Difficulty getting an erection
  • Difficulty keeping an erection
  • Lowered sexual desire

Treatment

Doctors offer varying treatments for erectile dysfunction. The treatment generally depends on the cause of impotence.

Treatments may include oral medications like Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis. These drugs work by increasing the supply of blood to the penis. Sometimes, topical creams like Alprostadil and DDAIP combination are enough to treat erectile dysfunction. On certain cases, doctors may prescribe injection therapy, in which a certain drug would be injected into the penis.

Hypnotherapy as a Form of Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Studies

Studies conducted involving a number of participants show that hypnotherapy has positive effects on individuals with sexual dysfunctions (including erectile dysfunction or impotence). In addition, in an article published by the Scandinavian Journal of Urology and Nephrology, 75% of male participants with erectile dysfunction showed improvement after hypnosis treatment.
