Treatments for ED

Following the Ten Steps outlined on this website and discussed in more detail in the book, Survival of the FIRMEST, should go a long way toward improving erectile function and even reversing ED. For those men who are not currently experiencing ED, have early signs of ED or who experience ED only occasionally, following the Ten Steps recommendations should prevent significant ED from occurring. And overall health and vitality should improve too!

For those men who have tried the Ten Steps for a least several months and would still like greater improvement, traditional medicine offers help of at least three types for ED: prescription medications, injections and implants for those most resistant to medical treatment.


A note of caution should be mentioned before prescription medications are used for ED. These medications can have serious side effects and complications, especially in men who already have heart or blood vessel disease and should only be taken with professional supervision. Men who have optimized NO production by following the recommendations in the Ten Steps may need significantly less prescription medication for ED. These prescription medications can cause a prolonged erection (priapism), requiring a trip to the emergency room. It is best for men who have already optimized NO to start with about one-fourth of the usual dose and gradually increase the dose until it is certain that an excessive response will not occur. The benefits, side effects and risks of taking these prescription medications with a prescribing physician supervising the care can be found at,


When both natural and prescription medications are not sufficient to treat ED a man should see a urologist and s/he may suggest medications that can be injected into the penis, a suppository that can be placed into the opening of the penis, or other medications for their individual situation.


Even when all of these options are not satisfactory, there is still hope for men with ED. There are a variety of surgical implants that can be considered and scientists and researchers are continuing to develop newer drugs and devices to restore erectile function in men with ED.

    “Something very interesting is happening here. Since taking these supplements, I’ve not only had better erections, but my desire has really increased. Things that haven’t gotten me aroused for many years now do, and I find myself thinking about sex much more often, like when I was a young man. Someone should measure testosterone levels before and after these supplements. I bet they’re higher”.

    “After a few weeks on the omega 3’s I knew something was very different. One morning I got up to shave and I just couldn’t stand it. I hopped back into bed for a “quickie” that turned out to be not so quick. Boy, did we have to rush to get me out of the door in time so that I would not be late for work. That has never happened before in many years of marriage. It was a very good feeling.”

    “After increasing my intake of folic acid, omega 3’s and antioxidants, we were on a vacation and after having had a great meal of white fish the previous evening, we just stayed in bed the next day like honeymooners. We’ve occasionally made love two or three times in a day when on vacation years ago, but this time was a great surprise. That day was better than we had ever experienced, even on our real honeymoon many years ago.”

    “It’s been much harder than I’ve experienced throughout my life. Many times it’s been so hard that it is impossible to imagine it being any harder. Now I really do know how hard, hard is!”
    50-year-old pilot, and recently divorced
    “My girlfriend has commented that our time together keeps getting better and better every time we make love. There was one time, recently, when she wanted me to make love to her again shortly after we just finished. I was a bit nervous because it has been a long time since I have been able to multiple times. I was greatly surprised to find myself rising up to the occasion and she was very happy with my performance. I am not used to receiving compliments for my performances in bed. This was a new one for me”.
    42-year-old attorney and recently remarried
    "I've been athletic, fit and generally in very good health throughout my life. At age 42 and newly wed to my soul mate, I never really imagined our intimacy could be better, and we had not experienced any problems in this area. However, within a week of adding fish oil and folic acid supplements to my diet, both my wife and I noticed some performance enhancements. The blood flow, duration and intensity of our intimacy seemed even better. With no other notable changes in diet or exercise, it seemed these supplements had noticeable positive effects. I'm also aware of research indicating the supplements can improve cardiac health, so for each of these reasons, I take my fish oil and folic acid daily.
