When a man loses the ability to achieve or maintain an erection adequate to perform normal sexual intercourse. Some of the factors that can lead to impotence include the use of certain medications, alcohol, cigarettes, sexually transmitted diseases, and chronic illness such as diabetes or high blood pressure. It is estimated that as many as thirty million men in the United States suffer from, at least, occasional impotence. Many therapists and physicians today believe that as many as 85% of all cases of impotence, have some physical basis. The Association for Male Sexual Dysfunction recognizes over 200 drugs that may cause impotence. Most people today know smoking and eating fatty foods lead to the production of plaques that clog arteries and block the flow of blood to the heart. These plaques can also block the arteries leading to the genitals interfering with the ability to maintain an erection.
- Herbal detoxification products may be helpful in cleansing the body of heavy metals, chemicals and other harmful poisons. We suggest using formulas that use organic, whole herbs. If interested, take a look at the Liver and Gallbladder Formula, Liver Rescue, Quick Colon Formula #1, and Quick Colon Formula #2.
- In the morning, drink the liver flush; 8 oz. Apple juice (or dilute with water), 3-6 cloves of raw organic garlic, and 1-2 inches of raw organic ginger root- mix well in blender. This drink will help flush the liver of toxins. Also, raw garlic kills Hepatitis on contact. Appl Environ Microbiol, 62(11) November 1996, p.4238-4242.
- Eat a high fiber diet including plenty of fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Also, see foods that heal. These foods will scrub arterial plaque off the walls of your arteries and reintroduce a healthy blood flow to the genitals.
- Investigate the possibility of heavy metal intoxication, this can be done through hair analysis.
- The following “live” (just squeezed) juices are healthful; beet, carrot, celery, currant, cranberry, citrus fruits, parsley, spinach and watermelon. These easily absorbable juices have highly concentrated nutrients that are essential for healthy blood vessels.
- Eat 3-6 cloves a day of raw garlic, as it has been repeatedly shown to lower cholesterol. There are simply too many studies on this subject, but we will reference a few here; all of these studies confirm garlic’s ability to significantly lower serum total cholesterol levels and the accumulation of plaque (one study exhibited this effect within 5-14 hours).
