Erectile dysfunction effects 50 percent of men ages 40-70 in the United States and is considered an important public health problem by the National Institutes of Health. Consumers are exposed to a plethora of natural products claiming to restore erection and sexual vitality. A review of the available empirical evidence reveals most naturally occurring compounds lack adequate clinical trials to support efficacy. However, arginine, yohimbine, Panax ginseng, maca, and Ginkgo biloba all have some degree of evidence they may be helpful for erectile dysfunction. Improvements in penile endothelial L-arginine-nitric oxide activity appear to be a unifying explanation for the actions of these naturally occurring agents. (Altern Med Rev 2004;9(1):4-16)
Sexual dysfunction is characterized by disturbances in sexual desire and in the psychophysiological changes associated with the sexual response cycle (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). Prevalent in both genders, it ranges from 10–52% of men and 25–63% of women based on several studies (Frank et al., 1978; Spector and Carey, 1990; Rosen et al., 1993). It has been reported that the incidence of sexual dysfunction in the United States is greater in women (43%) than in men (31%) (Laumann et al., 1999).
Advances have occurred in the understanding of the neurovascular mechanisms of sexual response in both men and women (Rajfer et al., 1992; Burnett, 1995; Park et al., 1997). Several new classes of drugs have been identified that offer significant therapeutic potential for the treatment of male erectile disorder (Heaton et al., 1995; Morales et al., 1995; Boolellet al., 1996), while other agents are indicated for sexual desire and orgasm disorders (Rosen and Ashton, 1993; Segraves et al., 1993; Morales et al., 1995). In addition to conventional therapies, however, individuals with sexual dysfunction often seek alternative therapies.

Lamm (The Virility Solution, Thinner at Last), a practicing internist and expert on male sexual health, insists there is a direct link between the quality of a man's overall health and the quality of his erections. One upside to this often-embarrassing issue is that by getting healthier in order to get harder, men can avoid the underlying illnesses that would require the use of such drugs in the future.
Dr. Larry Clapp was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1990. Given the limited options of surgery and radiation, he began intensive research into self-healing alternatives and developed a treatment for prostate cancer, which he successfully used to cure himself. Today, cancer-free, he continues his research while helping others using nutrition, massage, herbs, homeopathy, and other alternatives.
