Illnesses from A to Z

Libido disorders

One in two men over 40 at least knows the problem temporarily: he can’t do what he wants. In plain language: the erection of the penis required for sexual intercourse is not sufficient or does not last long enough. There are many reasons for this form of erectile dysfunction. Physical causes are generally due to blood flow disorders, nerve or hormonal problems. The most common illnesses that can be accompanied by erectile dysfunction include cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, inflammation of the testes, epididymis and prostate, as well as disrupted hormone production. What’s more, various medications can impair erectile function.

Libido disorders naturally also exist among women; a frequent sign is an excessively dry vagina. However, thanks to suitable lubricants, this problem is easier to manage. Nevertheless, in most cases, in women – as well as in men – the task does not lie in treating organic disorders, but in regulating psychological well-being. Many physical difficulties disappear by themselves when the natural feelings of pleasure are encouraged. Avoiding stress and stimulants, shaking off a performance mentality, and consciously perceiving one’s own mental state in many cases offer better possibilities than impotence drugs, mechanical aids and even an operation in order to regain a sensual and fulfilled sex life.

Medicinal mushrooms for libido disorders

Cordyceps has been known for centuries within traditional Chinese medicine as an effective aphrodisiac. It verifiably increases sexual desire and sexual stamina; some of its components are presumed to directly stimulate the functions of the genitals.

Reishi and Auricularia
Both of these medicinal mushrooms can also promote blood flow in the genital region. Reishi also has a balancing effect on the mind.
