Erectile Dysfunction & Aandropause 

[Causes and Healthy Solutions!]

Erectile Dysfunction, Swollen Testicles and Enlarged Prostate No More! – Dennis, a 76-year-old Texas Farmer, suffered months from all three, before his referral to me.  A Clinical Nutrition Analysis of his biochemistry identified his current nutritional deficiencies, excesses and toxicity.  After three weeks of Clinical Nutrition Therapy, based on these findings, his pain left as the swelling and inflammation abated and his prostate and testicles returned to their normal size, then in three months, his erectile function was restored.

This article is for our guys and the gals who love ‘em.  Though erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, contrary to some beliefs, getting older is not a cause of erectile dysfunction, andropause or any other male health concern.  The human body is designed to self-heal and healthfully function until the day we are called to be with our Lord.   However, if you are not providing the nutrients your body requires to optimally self-heal and function OR your diet, lifestyle, environment or other factors are interfering with its self-healing biochemical processes, then the symptoms and biological dysfunctions you are experiencing are the results. 

In my July 14, 2022 article, “How Mineral Imbalances Make a Healthy Thyroid Look Sick,” I shared that the focus for upcoming articles would be causes and healthy solutions to male and female hormone imbalances and dysfunctions.  

The July article outlined the first step on this subject because mineral balance is required to transport hormones to the cells, whether thyroid, adrenal, or male/female hormones.  A Tissue Mineral Hair Analysis (TMHA) is required to evaluate both current mineral and heavy metal levels.  Heavy metals are also a cause of erectile dysfunction.  

Blood chemistry tests do not identify “cellular” mineral levels.  When your blood is low in minerals, your self-healing system will transport minerals to the blood from your bones or other tissue, which then causes even more cellular mineral deficiencies.  Why?  Because your blood nourishes all the cells in the body; so, keeping the blood as rich, with minerals and other nutrients, as possible, is a top priority in this self-healing system.

Another overlooked factor is whether you have the minerals required for cardiovas cular function; because erectile dysfunction is also associated with poor blood flow.  For example, Zinc deficiency is associated with hardening of the arteries, which increases blood pressure, and both are causes of erectile dysfunction, as well as increased risk for strokes and aneurysms.

So, if you have not kept your blood free from excess fat, trans-fats, toxins, drug residues, chemicals, heavy metals and other pollutants, you make thick, toxic blood.  How well does the water flow in your home plumbing system when it is full of thick, toxic sludge?  Same difference.  This is why erectile function often accompanies the development of arteriosclerosis.  

So, the second step is a Clinical Nutrition Analysis of the Laboratory Report from testing your blood chemistry, which is beneficial to identify, not mineral levels, but what is needed to clear these toxins, so it may return to a healthy consistency, pressure, and blood flow. 

Another cause is imbalanced hormone production.  If your glands are not producing sufficient DHEA, Testosterone or other hormones, then even with sufficient minerals to transport them, there is not enough to be transported to the cells for healthy function. 

Other causes, we can identify and address if they apply to you, however, the above two steps is where we want to start.  My next article will include female health concerns – causes and solutions – such as why some experience menstrual bleeding beyond normal, what leads to endometriosis and breast/uterine cancer, etc.
