Erectile dysfunction treatment over the counter / ED Pills Online / ED tablets in India / Most effective pill for ED/ Safest drug for erectile dysfunction/ best medicine for erectile dysfunction without side effects?

If you are looking for erectile dysfunction over the counter drugs without consulting a sexologist then it’s a mistake on your part to self-medicate. But to be honest, we know many men who in order to avoid embarrassment, try to consume medicine on their own without consulting a doctor.

Sometimes, on the other hand, there are males who self-medicate not because of embarrassment but because they believe that almost all the medical health professionals are there to make money only and are not at all concerned about patients. Such patients think that they themselves can treat their ED with the vast amount of information provided online without even understanding the consequences or dangers of self-medication. Try not being such a person.

Anyways, please note that in order to Encash the popularity of Ayurveda / Herbal Medicines for effectively treating erectile dysfunction, some people, who love SHORT CUTS, are selling so called Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine that are ADULTERATED / MIXED with allopathic medicines or modern medicines like sildenafil or tadalafil etc. Since such medicines are taken the wrong way, they can cause dependence on them making you consume more and more of it to achieve the same desired effect. Sadly, after sometime even double doses won’t be able to make you hard or help you get erect.

Sometimes, the levels of allopathic medicines are so dangerously high that it can even cause Prolonged Painful Erections and in the worst scenario one can even have a heart attack if they react with other medicine the patient is taking.

But the good news is . . . not all ayurvedic pharmaceutical companies follow this type of practice. In fact, wrong practice is done only by some handful of pharmaceutical companies. In simple words, you are still safe the majority of time. In order to remain safe, please consult any good ayurvedic sexologist who can diagnose you correctly and then suggest you ED treatment.

Please note that Ayurveda which has proven itself time and again . . . has been existing centuries after centuries helping mankind, is getting the bad name due to such kind of short cuts following minds. Because of such bad elements of the society, many ill-informed people gets an opportunity to criticize the time tested ancient wisdom which ultimately prevent the patient to get the permanent solution for erectile dysfunction (the ayurvedic way) and make him dependent on medicines which one has to take few hours before any sexual activity for all his remaining life which even has many side effects attached to it.

Another problem with such SOS medicines is that you have to plan your sexual activity each and every time. You cannot enjoy spontaneous sex with your partner. Let us understand this with the help of an example.


You just met a girl on a date / your wife or partner just got romantic all of a sudden in the bedroom. All she is asking for is a good passionate act of love to make her dream come true. You can’t get hard all of a sudden. You at least need an hour (Minimum 1 hour) to get hard.

Now what type ED treatment you want to choose for yourself?

Treatment option (A) / SOS Medicines For ED / Fastest way to cure erectile dysfunction / Temporary ED Treatment:  Will you go out to the nearest pharmacy and buy a pill?? Or luckily, if you have the pill in your pocket/bedroom then pop it then wait for minimum 1 hour to get the erection kicked in?? Will you ask your partner to wait for at least 1 hour (sometimes it can even take 2 hours as well depending upon which brand medicine you took). Will she wait as happily as she could have been into spontaneous sexual activity?? Will such a situation spoil the moment or make her mood go down?? Since she also has feelings and needs, will she be able to digest and accept such scenarios each and every time??

Treatment option (B) / NO SHORTCUT ED TREATMENT / A permanent cure of erectile dysfunction after completion of AYURVEDIC TREATMENT: In this scenario, everything will be just opposite of the above mentioned. You can enjoy sexual activity whenever you want and wherever you want. No need to wait for the ED pill to start working. Isn’t it amazing!! Most importantly, you don’t have to take ED pills all your life.

PS: THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS IN AYURVEDA (WE ARE SPECIFICALLY TALKING ABOUT ED TREATMENT HERE. There are many minor health conditions which show excellent results in the first few hours only and bring back the patient to normal routine in less than expected time).

Which erectile dysfunction drug is best? Or which treatment is best to cure erectile dysfunction permanently?

Any treatment and every treatment which cures your impotence permanently from the root level is Best ED treatment. If we talk about India, then such treatment can be administered by anyone including Top Ayurvedic Sexologist in Delhi India or Best urologist in Delhi or India for erectile dysfunction etc.

As per us, depending upon the causative factor, a genuine ayurvedic treatment is the best treatment to cure erectile dysfunction permanently. A genuine and safe ayurvedic treatment can give you slow results, timely results or even fast results depending upon factors like- severity of your problem, quality of medicines used in the treatment, how your body responds back to the treatment, your age, your diet, your lifestyle etc. but not FASTEST / QUICKEST RESULTS in terms of ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.
