Medicine is the branch of health science and the sector of public life concerned with maintaining or restoring human health through the study, diagnosis, treatment and possible prevention of disease and injury. It is both an area of knowledge – a science of body systems, their diseases and treatment – and the applied practice of that knowledge.
Although they are often dismissed as ineffective solutions to impotence, more and more clinical research studies have found that herbs can help impotent men. Stimulation of the penile shaft by the nervous system leads to the secretion of nitric oxide (NO), which causes the relaxation of smooth muscles of corpora cavernosa (the main erectile tissue of penis), and subsequently penile erection. If never, the problem is likely to be physiological; if sometimes (however rarely), it could be physiological or psychological. When pharmacological methods fail, a purpose-designed external vacuum pump can be used to attain erection, with a separate compression ring fitted to the penis to maintain it. Penile erection is managed by two mechanisms: the reflex erection, which is achieved by directly touching the penile shaft, and the psychogenic erection, which is achieved by erotic or emotional stimuli. A vacuum erection device helps draw blood into the penis by applying negative pressure. It is normal for a man to have five to six erections during sleep, especially during rapid eye movement (REM). The former uses the peripheral nerves and the lower parts of the spinal cord, whereas the latter uses the limbic system of the brain. Additionally, adequate levels of testosterone (produced by the testes) and an intact pituitary gland are required for the development of a healthy erectile system. There are two methods for measuring changes in penile rigidity and circumference during nocturnal erection: snap gauge and strain gauge. Modern drug therapy for ED made a significant advance in 1983, when British physiologist Giles Brindley dropped his trousers and demonstrated to a shocked Urodynamics Society audience his papaverine-induced erection. The drug Brindley injected into his penis was a non-specific vasodilator, an alpha-blocking agent, and the mechanism of action was clearly corporal smooth muscle relaxation. A physician measures the latency between squeeze and contraction by observing the anal sphincter or by feeling it with a gloved finger inserted past the anus. It works as follows: The cylinder is placed on the penis and the pump is then used to draw air out of the cylinder. If you use these recreational drugs, however, you have bigger health problems than just impotence. The ring remains on the penis until intercourse is finished. If never, the problem is likely to be physiological; if sometimes (however rarely), it could be physiological or psychological. The former uses the peripheral nerves and the lower parts of the spinal cord, whereas the latter uses the limbic system of the brain. One of the most promising herbs is the purified extract of Tribulus terrestris.
