Food is an important part of ayurvedic treatment. Diet and erectile dysfunction are surprisingly linked. Some commonly available natural food for erectile dysfunction are given here.
Broken wheat, cooked in buffalo or cow raw milk for time till wheat cooks and milk thickens is a mild aphrodisiac. This is a sweet food to help erectile dysfunction.
The juice extracted from ginger is beneficial in the treatment of sexual weakness. For better results, a tablespoon of ginger juice should be taken with a half-boiled egg and honey, once daily at night, for a month. It relieves erection loss, premature ejaculation, and spermatorrhoea. Those who are averse to eggs, can boil ginger in milk till milk thickens, add honey when look warm and drink.
Garlic is one of the most effective natural harmless aphrodisiac if taken properly. It is a best food for erectile dysfunction. It is a tonic for loss of sexual power due to any cause, and for sexual debility and resulting from sexual overindulgence and nervous exhaustion. Two to three cloves of raw garlic should be chewed daily or better still, put them in a vessel, on low heat in cow ghee till they turn golden brown. This takes care of the heat, without loss of aphrodisiac value. Garlic is also strong immune system booster, and has strong affinity to attract mercury which poisons the brain as a result of modern medicines, vaccines and pollution of air and water.
Onion is another commonly available aphrodisiac food, though slightly less effective than garlic. Texts of ayurveda recommend this as diet for erectile dysfunction. It increases libido and strengthens the reproductory organs. The white skin variety of onion is more useful for this purpose.
Carrots also help in erectile dysfunction. It is the best diet for erectile dysfunction. Grate them finely, mix in Indian cow ghee or cow milk and heat till cooked, adding a little sugar and cardamom, nutmeg etc. This recipe is termed Carrot Halwa in India, but very few may be knowing that it is an aphrodisiac. Instead of sugar, you can add honey when look warm. The carotene in carrots preserves its health value even when cooked. When cow milk is heated, it forms a thick solid termed Khoya, and it retains its carotene content. It is this vitamin A precursor which Indian cow ghee or milk has in plenty.
You can replace carrots by bottle gourd, and then the recipe increases sexual stamina. In order to get adequate benefit, these recipes should be tried for 2-3 months continuously.
Lady's fingers are another tonic for improving sexual vigour. The persons who take five to ten grams of the root powder of this vegetable with a glass of milk and two teaspoons of ground candy sugar daily, will have strong sexual vigour Those suffering from excess bleeding or endometriosis can take 2-3 ladies finger, cut the lightly along the length and soak them in a glass of water overnight. In the morning, remove them and squeeze their mucilage contents in the glass and drink this water. If you carry out for 4 weeks, you will see the difference in the amount of bleeding next cycle. This is the reason the vegetable may have assumed its name.
The dried roots of safed musli (asparagus) are used in Unani medicine as an aphrodisiac. Fifteen grams of roots boiled in one cup of milk should be taken twice daily. The regular use of this remedy is valuable in loss of erection and premature ejaculation.
A soup made with about fifteen grams of drumstick flowers boiled in 250 ml milk is very useful as a sexual tonic in the treatment of sexual debility. It is also useful in functional sterility in both males and females. The powder of the dry bark is also valuable in erection loss, premature ejaculation, and thinness of semen. About 100 gm of the powder of the dry bark should be boiled in half a liter of water for about half an hour. Thirty grams of this powder, mixed with a tablespoon of honey, should be taken three times daily for a month.
Dried dates and figs are high power food. Pounded and mixed with almonds, pistachio nuts and pumpkin seeds in equal quantities, about 100 gm should be taken daily as an effective medicine for increasing sexual power. Black raisins are useful for restoration of sexual vigour. Wash them thoroughly in tepid water first and then boil with milk till cooked. This will make them swollen and sweet.

The procedure to cook a fruit or herb with milk is so common in most of the aphrodisiac recipes. Same process is also used in safed musli pak, adadiya pak, aswgandha ksheer pak, Kaunch pak. The common factor every where is Indian cow milk, which makes us curious to know what is such an extra ordinary quality or chemical in Indian Cow milk. Healthy people can experience extra strong erection early morning if they eat few pieces of sweet made from milk khoya. This also explains higher population density in North India, where milk consumption greater than in South India. Similarly, the poorer fertility in western countries as compared to eastern countries (Middle east, India, Pakistan, China) are notable. Modern milk production is the root cause of reduced fertility, while chemicals in food air water are secondary reasons.
