Natural Support For This Distressing Condition

Erectile dysfunction (ED), also called impotence, is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection. The cause may be psychogenic (mental/emotional) or physical. More than 90% of the cases are due to physical causes. In men over age 50, a leading cause of impotence is due to atherosclerosis. Many medications can cause loss of erectile ability.


  • Exercise regularly. Exercise improves blood flow.
  • Don’t smoke. Smoking reduces blood flow to the penis by constricting arteries.
  • Avoid excess alcohol. Alcohol alters hormone balance in males, tending to increase estrogens.


  • Maxi Multi: 3 caps, 3 times per day with meals. Optimal (not minimal) doses of vitamins A, E, B6, and zinc are particularly important for correcting ERD.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids:
    Flax seed meal, 2 teaspoons per day with food
    Flax seed capsules: 2-4 caps, 3 times per day (target dose range: 6-12 caps per day)
    Flax seed oil: 1 tablespoon per day
    Max EPA (Omega-3 rich fish oil): 1-2 caps, 3 times per day with meals (target dose: 3-6 caps per day).

With arteriole insufficiency (decreased blood supply)

  • Ginkgo: 1 cap, 3 times daily

With decreased libido

  • Korean Panax Ginseng: 1 cap, 2 times per day. (target dose: 15 mg ginsenosides per day)


  • If cholesterol is high: see recommendations for High Cholesterol.
  • If diabetic; see recommendations for Diabetes.
  • Support any organ system that scored high on the self-appraisal questionnaire found on pages 6-8 in your Holistic Health Handbook.


A cardiovascular evaluation should be performed as part of a complete physical examination. A male hormone profile should be performed so that imbalances can be corrected. Consultation with an alternative medicine physician is highly advisable, since ED is both a health problem AND reflects underlying additional health imbalances. 




(Male Pattern Baldness, Female Pattern Baldness, Alopecia, Toxic Baldness)

Many physical imbalances and illnesses can cause hair loss. It is important to get an annual physical exam AND to consult a physician if hair loss is sudden in onset or severe. If no obvious cause can be found, then genetic factors, decreased scalp circulation, hormone changes and aging are the potential causes. Certain medications and diseases can also cause hair loss. An alternative medicine physician can give you further assistance in exploring such causes of hair loss.

Male and female pattern baldness is most often related to genetic factors and aging levels of hormones. Male and female hormone testing and replacement therapy can aid this type of hair loss.

Toxic hair loss, such as that caused by chemotherapy drugs, will return 3-4 months after the offending agent is discontinued.

Alopecia is a form of patchy or sometimes complete baldness that is often due to an autoimmune condition.


  • Follow a healthy diet and lifestyle as outlined in the Ten Rules of Good Health.
  • Massage the scalp daily for five minutes, moving skin of scalp over underlying bone.
  • Practice head and neck exercises daily.


  • Maxi Multi: 3 caps, 3 times per day with meals. Optimal (not minimal) doses of antioxidants (A,C,E,selenium) are particularly important for normal hair growth. Free radical insult to the scalp is felt to be a significant contributing factor to hair loss.
  • Crudeolum Shampoo: Use this each time you shampoo hair. Massage into scalp; leave on for five minutes or more, rinse. This shampoo is very stimulating to the scalp.


For Male and Female pattern baldness:

  • Saw Palmetto 1 cap, 2 times per day. This is useful in both men and women since it blocks the conversion of excess DHT. A hormone profile is highly recommended to determine the exact nature of male and female hormone imbalances.

For Alopecia:

Please refer to recommendations for autoimmune diseases

Additional support will depend on the cause of hair loss. In men, male pattern baldness usually requires hormone balancing. Females with male pattern baldness often also have a hormone imbalance, too. This is best addressed with the help of an alternative medicine physician who can recommend and evaluate hormone levels by using a hormone profile test.

Natural Support For This Common Condition Of Older Men

An estimated 60% of men over age 40 have an enlarged prostate gland. Enlargement of the prostate gland causes obstruction of urine outflow. Symptoms include increased urinary frequency, nighttime urination, a sense of urgency, and reduced force of urine stream. At its most severe stage, an enlarged prostate gland can completely block the outflow of urine, resulting in urine retention in the blood.

The primary cause of an enlarged prostate is due to conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Dihydrotestosterone is a hormone that stimulates the growth of prostate gland cells. High levels of DHT are associated with prostate gland enlargement, prostate gland cancer, and male pattern baldness. Excess estrogens in males can also aggravate the condition, as can elevated cholesterol levels.

Males 50 and over should have a PSA blood test performed annually. Normal levels are from 0-4. Numbers above this level suggest benign prostate enlargement or prostate cancer.


  • Decrease consumption of carbohydrates and increase intake of protein. Soy and pumpkin seeds are especially beneficial.
  • Regular exercise improves circulation to the prostate gland AND helps normalize hormone levels.
  • Decrease or eliminate consumption of alcohol, caffeine, and sugar.
  • Maintain a normal weight. Overweight males have a two—fold increase in BPH.
  • Use soy foods 3 or more times per week. Soy is associated with decreased growth of prostate cells and also helps normalize cholesterol levels. (Soy protein powder or soy capsules can be used to supplement soy intake)
  • Don’t smoke. Cigarette smoke contains cadmium, which increases the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT.


  • Maxi Multi: 3 caps, 3 times per day with meals. Optimal (not minimal) doses of zinc are especially important.
  • Flax seed: 1 TBS. per day ground seed OR Flax seed oil: 2 caps, 3 times per day with meals.
  • Saw Palmetto: (160mg) 1-2 caps, 2 times per day. (Target dose: 160-320 mg per day).



Other herbs, such as pygeum and nettles, are also beneficial for prostate enlargement, but Saw Palmettohas by far the most research behind it. In clinical studies, Saw Palmetto has worked as well as the drug Proscar (finasteride) with no negative side effects. Always have a male hormone profile performed.


Male MENopause

In recent years it has been acknowledged that men experience a hormone decline and shift starting in middle age much the same as women do. The difference is that the male alteration in hormones occurs much more gradually than in women, so symptoms of the male climacteric, popularly called “andropause,” are more subtle. Many of the symptoms, though less abrupt in onset, are similar to the female menopause: depression, memory decline, loss of libido, hot flashes, decreased metabolism and difficulty making decisions. Any or all of these symptoms can be related to decreased or altered levels of the male sex hormones.

Andropause is not simply a matter of decreased testosterone. In fact, some men have elevated testosterone levels. DHEA, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), estrone, androstenedione and progesterone are all male hormones can that “shift” (increase or decrease) during andropause.

In males, higher levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone derived from testosterone, is associated with benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH) and possibly prostate cancer. Increased levels of estrogens in males also appear to play a role in the development of BPH. Decreased testosterone, or the ratio of testosterone to DHT, appears to be important in determining risk for both benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostate cancer.

Decreased testosterone, especially when coupled with increased estrone, may cause emotional liability, depression and memory changes in men. Decreased DHEA levels can affect other sex hormones and are a marker for aging. In longevity medicine, maintaining youthful DHEA levels is considered particularly important.

A male hormone profile is a highly advisable “first step” for hormone balancing. The following are safe and effective self-care measures that can be used to improve hormone balance, but hormone profile testing remains the standard for natural hormone replacement therapy in both men and women.


  • Diet: eat a nutritious diet high in nutrient-rich foods. Increase consumption of soy products (both sexes) if tolerated.
  • Achieve and maintain a normal weight.
  • Exercise regularly. 30 minutes, 3 times per week minimum.
  • Don’t smoke! The climacteric occurs sooner in people who smoke.


  • Maxi Multi: 3 caps, 3 times per day with meals. Optimal (not minimal) doses of vitamin E, C, B6, B12, folic acid, selenium, zinc and bioflavonoids are particularly important for men over 40.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids:
    Flax seed meal, 2 teaspoons per day with food
    Flax seed capsules
    : 2-4 caps, 3 times per day [target dose range: 6-12 caps per day]
    Flax seed oil
    : 1 tablespoon per day
    Max EPA
    (Omega-3 rich fish oil): 1-2 caps, 3 times per day with meals [target dose: 3-6 caps per day].

For General Hormone Balancing:

  • Saw Palmetto: 1cap, 2 times per day. [Target dose: 320mg per day]. Saw palmetto helps keep the ratio of testosterone to DHT high. The result is a more youthful testosterone profile and less unwanted prostate gland growth.
  • DHEA: 50 mg taken in the morning. Do not use higher doses without the results of a hormone profile. (A typical dose for an andropausal males is 50mg per day).
  • Mega Soy: 1 tab, once per day with breakfast. [Target dose: 100mg or more of isoflavones; 50-100mg or more of genisteins].
  • Melatonin: 3 mg at bedtime.

For Depression, Loss of Libido or Erectile Dysfunction:


Hormone replacement creams, patches or natural prescriptions may be recommended by your holistic physician AFTER a sex hormone profile has been performed. I am available for consultations by telephone to help you achieve optimal hormone balance.
