Herbal Treatment for Impotence in Men

Over the years, various rural areas have formulated their own unique herbal remedies to cure sterility in men. Traditionally, impotence in men was perceived as a sign of a paternal crisis and a curse from the gods. People who suffered from this condition were often mocked and abused as being 'sinners' and therefore, this kind of response made many of them avoid going to the hospital where they could receive treatment.

Instead, the victims opted to use the services of traditional healers (herbalists) who would use indigenous remedies to heal. Here are African secrets to herbal treatment of impotence in men, practised especially amongst the Kenyan communities.

Among the Kamba, Inywa manzi (Commiphora sp.), kyuna, mukanu and Kisemei (Acacia nilotica) were the trees popularly used by herbalist to treat cases of sterility in men. The herbalist ensured that pieces of the bark each plant were of the same quantity then they are cut into small pieces and thoroughly boiled. the resulting decoction is then taken at a dose of two times a day that is, in the morning before meals (to avoid vomiting) and in the evening after eating. For the period the person is on the herbal treatment, he shouldn't take milk. The decoction has to be ready as per the herbalists standards for it to be effective.

Other than mukombero tonic, which increases libido. Other trees used by the Kamba community include muuru (Grewia sp.) and mululuwi (Balanites aegyptiaca). The roots and leaves decoction is then taken as an aphrodisiac.

The Kikuyu popularly used such trees as ndirikumi (Pappea capensis), where the bark decotion is taken alone or mixed with soup and the patient goes wild temporarily. Mucingiri's (Cassia floribunda) bark is ground and taken as tea after it is mixed with milk. When a person suffers from temporary impotence, the roots of mukinduri (Croton megalocarpus) are boiled and mixed with milk for a patient.

Among the Luos, ogombo's (Mondia whytei) and thuon apap (Ammoncharis finneana) roots are dried in the open sun, then ground to powdery form. The resulting powder is stirred in a cup of coffee then taken orally.  Kipkoros (Indigofera sp.) trees are also used. The herbalist boils the roots and the patient takes 1/4 a glass that is morning and evening for 4 days.

Although science is yet to prove what communities believe, the Kamba, Kikuyu and Luos use indigenous trees to treat impotence. Among the Luo, the leaves of the ogunda (Sida cunneifolia) and okita amoso (Labiateae) are used, as it is locally available in the region. These trees are common in the area and its role in curing sterility in men has made it be classified as important to preserve.

In Oria Awendo, south Nyanza an aged man sits outside his hut, chewing a stick. He later explained that the 'stick' is the root of aila (Usticaceae) a medicinal herb and that swallowing the juice over the years has enabled him overcome impotence, as he points to the many children playing within his homestead. Whether his claims are justifiable or not, relying on herbal treatment is better than nothing and its everything for your healthy life.
