Natural Ways to Increase Male Potency

Male impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction, is the inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse, according to the National Kidney and Urological Disease Information Clearinghouse (NKUDIC). Male potency is usually easily remedied through the use of medication. For people who are uncomfortable with the side effects of pharmaceuticals and want to try to treat naturally before resorting to them, fortunately there are natural ways to increase male potency.

Lifestyle

Make healthy lifestyle changes to increase potency. NKUDIC suggests that the first and least invasive way to treat erectile dysfunction is to quit smoking, lose weight and adopt a healthy exercise routine. Sometimes these changes are enough to solve the problem.

Anxiety

Find ways to reduce your anxiety levels which can contribute to erectile dysfunction, according to the Ohio State University Medical Center. Try relaxation breathing, massage from your partner, yoga or meditation as natural ways to improve potency by relieving anxiety.

Psychotherapy

See a therapist to discuss any emotional or psychological issues that may be causing performance anxiety. This can help you feel more confident in your abilities and help you realize that you are normal. The therapist can help you determine if you are having relationship issues that are leading to impotence problems and help you find ways to solve them.

Constriction Rings

Consider a constriction ring if you can sufficiently obtain an erection but have trouble keeping it. The constriction ring is placed at the base of the penis and will keep blood from flowing out of the penis after an erection is achieved, helping it last longer according to Health.com.
