Let’s be honest, erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sensitive topic for many men and couples alike. It involves the inability of men to either attain or sustain an erection for sexual intercourse, and it can certainly be a problem in relationships. There are many reasons men may be impotent, but not all of them are physical reasons. For those men who do not have a physical condition behind their ED, hypnosis may be able to help.
According to a study published in the British Journal of Urology, hypnosis showed improvement in ED that was not linked to physical causes. The study was comprised of 79 men who were broken up into four groups. The first group received testosterone, the second received trazodone, the third underwent hypnosis, and the final group was the control group. The study revealed that all four groups showed improvement, but the hypnosis group showed an 80% success rate in treatment compared to 39% for the placebo group, 60% for the testosterone group, and 67% for the trazodone.
If you or a loved one suffer from ED, and it is not a diagnosed physical problem, hypnosis may be able to help you. By accessing your subconscious, hypnosis helps you get to the root of the problem so you can correct it. Anxiety is a common symptom of ED, and hypnosis works from a place of deep relaxation to help you overcome those feelings with positive suggestions. It allows you to provide your subconscious mind with different thought patterns that address the issues behind ED, and help you figure out how to overcome it altogether.
As I mentioned before, hypnosis only works in cases where the ED is not a physical problem. For those experiencing ED, it’s important to first seek guidance from a licensed medical professional to rule out any diseases or other physical ailments that may be the cause of the problem. Combining hypnosis with a doctor’s recommended treatment is a great way to improve the condition, and restore intimacy in a relationship.
