Dear Dr. Ruth,
I’m 49 years old, and I’ve been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction. Are there any nutritional treatments for this problem?
At age 49 you are way too young to have such a problem. Erectile Dysfunction (ED) can be caused by any number of factors, but the most common one is the clogging of the arteries which is caused by eating a diet of animal foods, processed refined foods, and too much fat.
The scary news is that if those arteries are clogged, you can bet the arteries leading to the heart, brain, and everywhere else are also clogged. I strongly recommend an immediate change to a diet consisting only of fruits and vegetables. If that’s the cause of your ED (and it is in most cases), you should see a reversal of the clogging within a week although it might take a bit longer to see enough reversing to make a difference.
The link below will bring up some snapshots and articles. At the bottom of the list select Daily Vegan Meal Plan. This is a simple plan that will clean up your arteries. This will not only help your ED, but rid you of other symptoms as well.
Get back to me if you have more questions.
