Secrets to herbal alternatives to drugs, they really work
It boggles my mind that most people in the Western world -- along with the media, most doctors and medical researchers -- are not aware of the potent aphrodisiac herbs that can be considered erectile dysfunction herbal alternatives to Viagra. There are quite a number of aphrodisiac herbs that are effective in enhancing sexuality in men and women, but you have to learn how to use them effectively. Herbs work slower than drugs and that may be one reason why some people think they don't work. As Americans we like a pill that gives an immediate effect and if we don't notice an effect within an hour or two we think it is a dud. Most plant libido alternatives to Viagra take a few days for optimal effects, but there are some herbs or combinations that work quicker.

Florida Medicaid bean counters have decided that, after July 1, Viagra once a month is enough for the limp of wallet. No snickering. Erectile dysfunction is no laughing matter. What am I talking about? Ten thousand Viagra jokes say it is a laughing matter. The laughing stops when taxpayers are charged for someone else's pills at $10 apiece retail. And if private insurers follow Florida's lead and ration Viagra and its cousins, Levitra and Cialis, to one pill a month instead of the customary four or six, will there be rioting at Eckerd? Or worse, will people used to getting a free ride be forced to confront the horror of buying their own little blue pills? Well, that would be just too grotesque to imagine, so let's hear from a California physician and author who says most men and women can get all the Libido Helper they need off the shelf for about a dollar a pop. In fact, I hold right here in my clammy hands Dr. Ray Sahelian's Natural Sex Boosters -- Supplements that Enhance Stamina, Sensation, and Sexuality for Men and Women (Square One, $14.95). Sahelian, who holds a degree in nutrition science, summarizes clinical findings, anecdotal feedback and his personal experience with 20 widely available alleged herbal alternatives to Viagra. This sounded dangerous. Who determines what is safe and in what doses? Do you poll witch doctors on the Upper Orinoco? "Actually, we do draw on centuries of knowledge accumulated by natives aware of local plants," he said. "Most botanicals that have shown promise as herbal alternatives to Viagra are drawn from Eastern, African and South American herb gatherers and shamans." Much European herb knowledge has been lost, he added, because witches were routinely burned. But how can we know herbal alternatives to Viagra really work? "Most studies used rats," he said. Since rats don't kiss and tell, positive rat findings must be backed with human feedback, and this the author has provided with the help of patients and his own tireless expeditions into the field. We have questions, many questions.

Q: Your press release lists 20 herbs with demonstrated sex-boosting properties. Do they really work?

A: Yes, they work. Basically, a man takes Viagra and (can perform). But the sensation is not going to be enhanced, nor is desire much influenced. With certain herbal alternatives to Viagra, the intimacy experience is enhanced. There is a slower and longer lasting effect with the bonus of increased urge and frequency for both men and women. In my opinion, though, arginine nitric oxide producing amino acid is not potent enough to be effective.

Q: So you contend these herbal alternatives to Viagra work for men and women? How come we haven't heard more about them?

A: Mainstream medicine tends to be dismissive of alternatives to Viagra. The pharmaceutical companies have no motive to promote supplements they can't patent. Many people do use these herbs together with the prescription impotence drugs.

Q: If you had to name a substance that most nearly replicates the Viagra effect, which would it be?

A: Yohimbe is the closest herb I can think of that could be considered an herbal alternative to Viagra, although by itself it is not as effective and its effects are enhanced when combined with other herbs. Combinations can be as good as Viagra, but they may not work as quickly as Viagra. However, these herbs can increase sensation and libido which Viagra cannot do.. alternatives to Viagra. I have not studied cordyceps fungus enough to determine whether it is effective as an ED treatment.

From the book: "Indigenous peoples (Amazon) use muira puama for the treatment of sexual dysfunction, fatigue, neuromuscular problems and rheumatism.... One study in rabbits indicates that MP has the ability to relax the corpus cavernosa of the penis, thus allowing for engorgement." The author and patients noted a mild euphoric effect with increased energy and, in Sahelian's case, "a stronger interest in having sex and more frequent sexual thoughts." Ray Sahelian said that the shelves of health stores groan with proprietary preparations that combine these and many more herbs, and that caution is strongly urged. Check with your doctor before taking any herbal preparation. After consulting with your doctor, start with small doses and note reaction. Sahelian, author of Mind Boosters: A Guide to Natural Supplements that Enhance Your Mind, Memory, and Mood, provides research links to herbal products on the Web.

Reports of blindness in men using Viagra, Cialis
 A Houston man filed a lawsuit in June 2005 in federal court against Pfizer, claiming he suffered blindness after taking its best-selling erectile dysfunction drug Viagra. James Thompson filed the civil suit against Pfizer in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday and is seeking more than $75,000 for his vision loss. He is also seeking class-action status because it has been estimated that since 1998, 23 million people have taken the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra, the trade name for sildenafil.

Overdose
Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz became ill after taking too many Viagra tablets and could not see straight for days. Kaulitz, 20, a member of the German rock band that has sold millions of albums around the world, said he took a few tablets used to treat impotence when he got back to his hotel. The next morning his head was pounding and everything in front of his eyes was blurry. Itt took two days for the effects to wear off.

German drugmaker Boehringer Ingelheim has stopped developing a drug dubbed the "pink Viagra" after failing to convince U.S. regulators the experimental pill could boost women's sex drive."The decision was not made lightly, considering the advanced stage of development," chief executive Andreas Barner said in October 2010 of the hoped-for moneyspinner aimed at premenopausal women with a persistent and unexplained lack of sex drive. Boehringer's move marked the failure of the latest attempt to find a female counterpart to Pfizer's Viagra, the blockbuster blue pill for men. Drugmakers have tested various ways to boost female libido, but women's sex lives have proved difficult to target with medication.
