ED & Diet

Dear Annie,

I wanted to write and tell you how I cured my ED. I switched from a normal western diet to a strict whole foods, vegan diet for 16 weeks. I was able to stop taking high blood pressure meds, statins, and the ED problem went away! It makes sense if you think about ED as the first sign of clogged plumbing, and that animal products have high cholesterol, whereas plants have next to none. Add that to the fact that we eat either female or neutered animals and we're getting extra estrogen with every burger and chunk of cheese too.

Was it hard, my friends want to know? Well, I probably couldn't have done it without a lot of help from my wife, who shopped differently and made completely different meals. Other than that, it wasn't too bad, and I just ate an avocado every time I felt a craving for a burger. We have eased off on the strictness of the diet a bit, eating what most would call a Mediterranean diet, with lots of vegetable and grains and nuts, and only small amounts of meat and cheese. Once you have had a good cleaning out you don't seem to want to go back to the old heavy meals. They always seem to upset your digestive tract some.

Thanks for the column Annie.
