There are many alternatives to PDE5 inhibitors to treat erectile dysfunction.
Over the past few years, “Big Pharma,” and their typical TV ads would have you believe that for men who are suffering from “performance issues,” oral ED drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra, are the only answer to their problems.
Collectively, these drugs are known as PDE5 inhibitors. However, PDE5 inhibitors are not ideal, or even recommended for all men. For example, these drugs should not be used by men that are taking nitrates for heart disease. They also are not indicated for men with conditions such as high-blood pressure or diabetes.
Even in men without these conditions, Viagra and the other well-known PDE5 inhibitors have a variety of unwelcome side effects, some of which are intolerable for users.
But, most importantly, men need to understand that today, while they can be effective for some men, they are not the only treatments available for erectile dysfunction.
The Known Side Effects of PDE5 Inhibitors
All of the popular oral ED medications work basically the same, and therefore have pretty much the same possible side effects.
The most common side effect is a headache, which occurs in about 16% of users of PDE5 inhibitors. Other reactions include flushing, upset stomach, nasal congestion, and urinary tract infections.
Rarer but reported side effects include visual problems such as blurred vison and sensitivity to light. However, men with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a degenerative eye disease, should be very cautious about using these medications. In such men that already have RP, use of PDE5 inhibitors have been linked to total blindness.
Sudden hearing loss is another rare, but documented side effect of these drugs. And, as stated earlier, men with diabetes, high-blood pressure, or taking nitrates for heart disease should avoid PDE5 inhibitors entirely.
Alternative Treatments for ED – Pulsed Wave Therapy
If you want medically-proven alternatives to oral ED medications, there are some remarkable, safe and effective treatments available. One such procedure uses pulsed-soundwave therapy to improve sexual performance.
As you get older, the blood vessels that supply blood to your penis begin to collapse or break down. We have recently introduced a remarkable new erectile dysfunction treatment called the GAINSWave™.
Basically, the pulsed soundwaves improve blood flow to the penis by opening existing blood vessels and stimulating the growth of new blood vessels. Increased blood flow results in stronger, harder, and more sustainable erections.
Pulsed Wave Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma for ED
Another drug-free procedure that can treat ED and also improve sexual performance in any man is the P-shot. The P-shot uses platelet rich plasma or PRP to improve erectile quality. PRP uses the healing and growth factors in your own blood to increase blood flow to the penis. The healing powers of PRP also stimulate the growth of new tissue, which results in improved ability to achieve bigger, and more sustainable erections
We have combined the effectiveness of PRP and of soundwave therapy to create the new and improved version of the Gains Enhancement®. The GAINSWave™ and the P-shot are what we call “synergistic,” meaning that each one enhances the effect of the other.
When we combine the two therapies to create the Gains Enhancement, we deliver a “one-two punch,” that results in a better, harder and more sustainable erections than either procedure could produce on its own!
As opposed to PDE5 inhibitors, the Gains Enhancement:
- Is 100% drug free.
- Has no expensive prescriptions to fill and refill.
- Has long lasting results, up to 18 months or more.
- Is safe for all men, and has little or no known side effects
- Can treat Peyronie’s disease
- Can increase penis size when optional “Gains Enhancement Add-ons” are selected.
Even men without ED, report improved sexual performance after having the Gains Enhancement.
