Hypnosis for Erectile Dysfunction
Male impotence or impotency is the inability of a man to retain an erection through to sperm ejaculation or even to get an erection at all. Another name used medically is Erectile Dysfunction.
Of course, any potential physiological reasons should be checked by a qualified health practitioner. There may be insufficient blood flow to the penis. If a young man is experiencing problems with impotence, it is more likely to be caused by a physical reason than in an older man, say over 45 years. A temporary illness or other medications may be causing the problem.
Male impotence can be caused by psychological causes ie “It’s all in the mind”. Perhaps due to the way the man is feeling, his thoughts, his distractions mean that he is unable to concentrate and complete the sexual act. Being diagnosed as impotent may affect a man deeply further ruining his confidence in his “ability to perform”. In today’s stressful society and fast lifestyle, it is easy to see why impotence is on the increase.
Women have filed for divorce because their husbands are impotent so cannot satisfy their sexual needs.
There are over the counter medications available to treat male impotence but recent studies show that that they may cause other physical disorders eg seizures, vomiting, flushing, diarrhea, sweating, nausea and even blindness and deafness. Men who take Viagra often report a disturbing heart rate and inability to sleep. Also Viagra must be taken 20 minutes to one hour before having sex which means spontaneity is out the door. If the woman then decides not to have sex, the man is left with an erection which is hard to lose.
Diet plays an important part. Consume fresh healthy foods that are not processed, foods which include water soluble dietary fibre to control cholesterol and flush plaque out of the arteries, stay away from junk foods that can lead to overweight and cholesterol. It is important to keep those arteries clear. Also drink plenty of water, ideally at least 2 glasses of water for every 2 hours you are awake. Oysters are said to help male impotence because of their high zinc content.
Hypnosis can work wonders for impotence with psychological causes
If the male impotence or erectile dysfunction is due to a psychological problem, hypnosis has been shown to be very effective. Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state in which both the mind and body are deeply relaxed and as such the mind can receive positive new suggestions and eliminating the fear of “What if it happens again?”. This thought has three main impacts:
1) It causes stress, which is far from the ideal state for getting and maintaining an erection.
2) It causes you to rehearse things going wrong within your mind, which makes the problem worse.
3) It makes you focus consciously on getting an erection – exactly the opposite of what you want to do.
It becomes a vicious circle which hypnosis can break..
The real test for whether impotence has a psychological component for you is whether you can get an erection at other times eg on waking in the morning.
Hypnosis is such an effective cure for the psychological component of impotence because it:
1) Hands control of your sexual performance back to your unconscious mind where it belongs. (Stop trying to get an erection – it just has to happen by itself, like falling asleep.)
2) Lowers anxiety around sexual performance.
3) Reminds the mind of your former effective pattern for getting and maintaining an erection.
Hypnosis is either available therapeutically through a qualified and experienced practitioner or via a download hypnosis mp3 session. Professional hypnosis scripts are also available for hypnotherapists to use within personalized hypnotherapy sessions. Many men have found this approach works where other treatments have failed.
