Impotence – Ten Natural Remedies

In 1920 the book “Searchlights on Health, The Science of Eugenics: A Guide to Purity and Physical Manhood” was published.It sold over one million copies.The book, by B.G. Jeffries and J.L. Nichols offered advice, of a moralistic and medical nature, to both men and women, young and old, on proper conduct and social behavior between the sexes.The following article contains ten selected pieces of advice from the book (slightly edited for the sake of clarity), that offer safe, natural remedies for impotence.Ten Natural Remedies For Impotence1. First build up the body by taking some good stimulating tonics. The general health is the most essential feature to be considered, in order to secure restoration of the sexual powers. Constipation must be carefully avoided.2. If the kidneys do not work in good order, some remedy for their restoration must be taken. Take plenty of out-door exercise, avoid horseback riding or heavy exhaustive work.3. Impotence from mental and moral causes often takes place. Persons of highly nervous organization may suffer incapacity in their sexual organs. The remedy for these difficulties is rest and change of occupation.FOOD AND DRINKS WHICH WEAKEN DESIRE AND RESULT IN IMPOTENCE4. All kinds of food which cause dyspepsia or bring on constipation, diarrhea, or irritate the bowels, alcoholic beverages, or any indigestible compound, has the tendency to weaken the sexual power. Drunkards and tipplers suffer early loss of vitality. Beer drinking has a tendency to irritate the stomach and to that extent affects the private organs.5. Coffee drank excessively causes a debilitating effect upon the sexual organs. The moderate use of coffee can be recommended, yet an excessive habit of drinking very strong coffee will sometimes wholly destroy vitality.6. It is a hygienic and physiological fact that tobacco produces sexual debility and those who suffer any weakness on that source should carefully avoid the weed in all its forms.DRUGS WHICH STIMULATE DESIRE7. There are certain medicines which act locally on the membranes and organs of the male, and the papers are full of advertisements of “Lost Manhood Restored”, etc., but in every case they are worthless or dangerous drugs and certain to lead to some painful malady or death.All these patent medicines should be carefully avoided. People who are troubled with any of these ailments should not attempt to doctor themselves by taking drugs, but a competent physician should be consulted.8. Eating rye, corn, or graham bread, oatmeal, cracked wheat, plenty of fruit, etc. is a splendid medicine and may help as natural remedies for impotence. If that is not sufficient, then a physician should be consulted.NATURAL REMEDIES FOR IMPOTENCE: THE TIME FOR INDULGENCE9. The health of the generative functions depends upon exercise, just the same as any other vital organ.10. Intercourse should be absolutely avoided just before or after meals, or just after mental excitement or physical exercise. No wife should indulge her husband when he is under the influence of alcoholic stimulants, for idiocy and other serious maladies are liable to be visited upon the offspring.NATURAL REMEDIES FOR IMPOTENCE: RIGHTLY BEGINNING SEXUAL LIFE.Intercourse promotes all the functions of the body and mind, but rampant just and sexual abuses soon destroy the natural pleasures of intercourse, and unhappiness will be the result.Remember that intercourse should not become the polluted purpose of marriage.To be sure, rational enjoyment benefits and stimulates love, but the pleasure of each other’s society (company), standing together on all questions of mutual benefit, working hand in hand and shoulder to shoulder in the battle of life, raising a family of beautiful children, sharing each other’s joys and sorrows, are the things that bring to every couple the best, purest, and noblest enjoyment that God has bestowed upon man.
