WHAT IS ERECTILE DISFUNCTION THERAPY?
Erectile dysfunction, or ED – the inability to achieve or maintain an erection long enough for sexual intercourse – is a common problem among men of all ages. Research suggests that half of all men over 40 years of age have experienced some degree of ED, with 25% of those above 65 suffering from ED on a regular basis. Erectile dysfunction can be rooted in a physical or psychological problem, as well as a combination of the two.
CAN ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION ED BE A SYMPTOM OF LOW TESTOSTERONE?
Low testosterone is usually the prime suspect when it comes to ED, and it can additionally lead to fatigue, depression, anxiety, obesity and diabetes, all of which can independently cause ED. In some cases, deficiency of human growth hormone and low oxytocin might also lead to inability to sustain or achieve an erection.

IS ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION A COMMON ISSUE IN MEN?
Despite it being a common issue affecting over 30 million American men, Erectile Dysfunction often goes undiagnosed and untreated out of embarrassment and choosing not to disclose this information with their doctors. The truth, however, is that erectile dysfunction can be treated successfully and if left untreated may lead to a host of other health issues. ED is often a warning flag for a number of health concerns, including testosterone deficiency which can be a precursor to diabetes and cardiovascular problems.

WHAT ARE SOME ED TREATMENT OPTIONS?
PDE-5 INHIBITORS AS AN ED TREATMENT
ED is a medical issue that can have a lasting effect on many aspects of a man’s life. Patients often seek out quick solutions such as Cialis, Viagra, Levitra, Stendra, etc. The problem with these quick “take-a pill” solutions is they only address the symptoms and not the cause. The best approach is to address both symptoms and cause at the same time. Psychologically induced erectile dysfunction treatments such as intracavernosal injections of PGE40, Trimix and Bimix can be a complementary approach to Testosterone Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction. Additionally, Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibitors (of which Sildenafil, known as Viagra, Tadalafil, and Vardenafil) and testosterone therapies have all proven to be very efficient in resolving the ED issues.
P-Shot® (PRP injected into the penis for ED)
The P-Shot® is a completely natural procedure that is non-surgical and painless. It involves the injection of platelet rich plasma into the shaft of the penis, once it has been sufficiently numbed. This attracts stem cells and growth factors that kick-start tissue growth in the nerves and blood vessels, that in turn improves the size and quality of your patient’s erections, as well as treating erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease.

TRT TREATMENT FOR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION
Discovering the root of the problem is critical to determine the best treatment program for you. If the problem is physical, the easiest and most efficient treatment is BHRT or BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. The goal is to restore Testosterone, Estrogen, and HGH to normal levels, improving not just your sexual life but your overall health and well-being too. If you have other hormonal deficiencies, your doctor might also prescribe additional therapies.

The symptoms of erectile dysfunction include difficulty achieving an erection, trouble maintaining an erection and a reduced interest in sex. Because male sexual arousal is a fairly complex process, it can sometimes be difficult to identify a specific cause.
Arousal starts in the brain, but it also involves the nerves, muscles and blood vessels, and can be impacted by hormones and emotions. If a problem develops with any of these things, erectile dysfunction could be the consequence.
Generally speaking, causes for erectile dysfunction can be divided into two categories: physical and psychological. Though each of these categories has its own set of contributing factors, many cases of erectile dysfunction involve causes from both categories. Following is an overview of each category.
PHYSICAL CAUSES OF ED
The most common physical causes of erectile dysfunction or impotence are related to circulation and blood pressure. Heart disease, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol and high blood pressure can all impact the amount of blood flowing to the penis. Diabetes contributes to ED by damaging your nerves and blood vessels. Taking certain medications is also associated with causing or exacerbating ED.
Obesity and metabolic syndrome can cause changes in blood pressure, body composition and cholesterol, which may lead to ED. Other conditions that may contribute to erectile dysfunction include Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, Peyronie’s disease, sleep disorders, smoking, alcoholism and drug abuse. Taking certain medications can also increase your risk for ED.
PSYCHOLOGICAL CAUSES OF ERECTILE DISFUNCTION
In many cases, ED is rooted in psychological issues — especially in men under 40 years of age. Because arousal starts in the brain, psychological issues can be a significant contributing factor to erectile dysfunction. Mental health conditions like depression or anxiety can negatively impact your libido, making it more difficult for you to become aroused.
Stress can also be a major factor because it may interfere with your brain sending signals to allow extra blood to flow to the penis. In many cases, psychological issues develop into performance anxiety which, in and of itself, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Though it can sometimes be difficult to pin down the specific cause of your erectile dysfunction, it is always worth the effort. Left untreated, ED can contribute to increased stress and anxiety as well as low self-esteem, relationship problems, and impotence. Keep reading to learn about treatment options.

FREQUENTLY ASKED ED TREATMENT QUESTIONS
Natural erections are neurovascular events that involve both the nervous system and the vascular system. The nervous system involves nerves and the vascular system involves veins and arteries. The erectile process begins with either tactile or mental stimulation. Tactile stimulation or arousal involves physical sexual stimulation with a partner or masturbation. Mental stimulation involves either mental sexual fantasies or visual arousal such as watching pornography. Sexual stimulation causes an increase in the release of Nitric Oxide (NO) within the corpus cavernosum (the penile erectile capsule). Nitric Oxide then stimulates the production of cGMP a chemical messenger that acts directly on the smooth muscle around the blood vessels in the penile corpora cavernosum resulting in blood vessel dilation and an increase in blood flow and expansion of the penis.
No. ED doesn’t have to be a part of getting older. While it is true that older men may need more stimulation (such as stroking and touching) to achieve an erection, they should still be able to get an erection and enjoy sex.
Insurance coverage of ED depends upon the type of treatment prescribed. If there is a documented medical condition that is shown to be causing ED, insurance will usually cover at least some of it. Sex therapy and medications that have not yet been approved by the FDA, however, are generally not covered. Ask your insurance provider if the treatment you are considering will be covered.
