I remember like it happened yesterday, it played out like a satirist scene from a movie. It was the most embarrassing event that I had ever encountered. I was in a moment of apparent intimacy, and the friend downstairs wasn’t responding, I mean not at all.
There was no warning, nothing, one day the dude downstairs was fine, the next day dude wasn’t responding at all. I didn’t know what to do or say, there was nothing I could do or say.
I was then catapulted on a mission to find out what the hell just happened to my body.
So what did I found out?
I found out that I exhibited symptoms of the three primary causes of erectile dysfunction.
- Magnesium Deficiency
- Toxic Liver
- Candida Overgrowth
Magnesium is responsible for over 300 co-enzymatic processes in the body and is integral to the functioning of muscles and nerves. A deficiency in magnesium can calcify penile arteries, which is when calcium blocks coronary arteries and doesn’t allow enough blood to create engorgement in the penis. See article: Link established between erectile dysfunction and calcified coronary arteries.
Erectile dysfunction can also be caused by liver diseases such as hepatitis, or inflammation of the liver, which can trigger cirrhosis. Also of note, alcohol abuse is another leading cause(not my issue though), and going on a drinking binge is a well-known cause of temporary erectile dysfunction. See article: Erectile dysfunction in cirrhosis is impacted by liver dysfunction.
Candida and internal parasites can cause literally any disease and many diseases are just symptoms of candida overgrowth and/or parasites. They will not only block absorption of nutrients in your intestines, but they will also use the nutrients for themselves thereby starving the bodies of nutrition, which can lead to erectile dysfunction.
So how did I reverse my erectile dysfunction?
Well, I had a whole host of magnesium deficiency symptoms, I chose to address the magnesium issue first and I bought Doctors Best Elemental Magnesium Glycinate, and I took two pills a day, which equates to 400mg’s daily. I realized after doing extensive research on magnesium that my extreme magnesium deficiency was not just from my diet, but because I was always frequenting steam rooms at the gym. Basically, I was just sweating out what little magnesium I had in my body. I suggest you read my article on magnesium, “Magnesium the Miracle Mineral“.

Trust me when I say this, everyone has a toxic liver to some degree if you’re on a modern western diet. Anyway, I chose to detox my liver with Jarrows Milk Thistle, it’s an extract of its main active compound silymarin. I don’t suggest using the herb directly as it’s not strong enough as the extract, you’ll notice a difference with the extract within a week. See my article, “Heal the Liver with Milk Thistle“. You can purchase Jarrows Milk Thistle on Amazon.com here.
Lastly and the most troubling health-wise for me was dealing with candida overgrowth. Researching how to remedy this condition was no game in the park. I knew my candida overgrowth was triggered by me being on a regimen of antibiotics for a few weeks because of an oral procedure I had done. After I finished my research I chose Jarrow Formulas Jarro-Dophilus, I took one pill a day before meals three times a day, I still periodically take these probiotics, primarily because the western diet is designed to starve or destroy our good intestinal flora. Definitely read my blog article on How I Overcame Candida Overgrowth. You can purchase Jarrows Jarro-Dophilus on Amazon.com here.
Once I implemented these three supplements, not only did my erectile dysfunction disappear as mysteriously as it arrived, but my health and general well being had increased astronomically!
