Impotence Treatment | Homeopathy for Emotional Suppression or Excess

This article provides information for the next three homeopathic remedies for treatment of impotence.
The uniting link between Phosphorus, Graphites and Conium maculatum in cases of ED is found in the emotional excess and the continence.
More about the reasons for the problems with potency may be found here.


  This remedy deeply affects the emotional sphere. Individuals who are anxious and apprehensive; who feel unlucky and used by others; who cannot evade the evil forebodings they have – such people can be deeply influenced by Graphites.

They have sad and despondent disposition, inclination to self-pity; and at times they have persistent thoughts of death. Avoid mental efforts because the mental work is exhausting and leads them to fatigue. Very moody they can be. The music touches them profoundly, even to tears.

It is difficult for them to make a decision. Their thought process is slow and their memory is poor, especially for recent events.

The anxiety and fears of Graphites are described in this article.

Erectile Dysfunction

The sexual function in males is abnormal. They feel great desire but are unable to have an erection. At the same time they may have aversion to sex. It is not unusual for them to ejaculate too early or to fail during the coition. Their sexual desire is like their mood; it may be diminished or increased, even violent.

Also they ejaculate too quickly, before erection is complete; and may have pollutions without any erection.

These men frequently suffer from many eruptions on the genital organs: herpetic or vesicle eruptions on the penis, especially the prepuce; moist itching eczema on scrotum and between thighs. They may have suffered from hydrocelein their childhood.


Phosphorus is one of the biggest polychrests in the homeopathic Materia Medica. It has affinity to: the cavities of the body (head, lungs, heart); the circulation (blood and blood vessels, especially arteries); the mucous membranes of stomach and bowels, and lower lungs; the brain and the spinal cord; the bones; the liver.

Phosphorus is applied for cure of serious diseases and mostly chronic conditions. The pathology covered by this remedy practically is vast; however the causation of the diseases in the individuals is important factor for distinguishing one remedy from another.

The attempt to describe Phosphorus emotional pattern in few sentences is quite challenging. These are very affectionate people. The key word to their emotional state is ‘diffusion’.

They are open, extroverted, lively, expressive, sensitive to all external impressions. They love being in a company and are very sympathetic with others. Phosphorus feels the pain of other people as if it was his own.

Many fears disturb their emotional balance: from darkness, from being alone, from thunderstorm, insects, diseases; they have vivid imagination and fear from ghosts, or that something will happen – and they can imagine a lot of things that might happen to them or to their friends. And they have many friends; are creative and artistic.

Erectile dysfunction

Phosphorus pathology may be developed after emotional excess; fright and grief; celibacy and sexual excesses.

Men have excessively increased sexual desire; sexual excitement is even painful. They are very lustful, even voluptuous people, capable of violent desire, reaching mania.

They experience frequent pollutions – in the morning, in the afternoon during siesta, during sleep – with or without dreams, after sex or masturbation; almost every night.

These men have strong disposition to masturbate; even as children they probably practiced masturbation. Their genitals are highly excitable. They are people capable of sexual excesses – or of complete continence.

When in balance, the people with phosphoric constitution have excellent ability to perform sexual intercourse. However, due to the exciting factors described above, their sexual function may become disturbed. The erections could be too strong, painful, troublesome, violent; or completely missing, though accompanied by great sexual desire.

Poison Hemlock

Conium maculatum | Poison Hemlock

Conium was named “Balm of Gilead”. It is an ancient herbal remedy for diseases of old maids and women during and after climacteric period. The plant is highly poisonous, producing gradual ascending paralysis which ends with death by failure of respiration.

Homeopathically processed, this plant becomes a powerful remedy for treatment of heavy diseases like cancer of the breast, multiple sclerosis, paralysis etc.

Its grand area of action is on the nerves, glands, and sexual organs and respiration. It is particularly a remedy for ‘old maids and old bachelors’ – the old expression for people who live by keeping from sexual relations.

Mentally these persons are indolent and indifferent, morose, no showing interest to study or work, or anything. They can however be easily excited, quarrelsome, intolerant to contradiction and dictatorial. All these excitement may lead to depression.

Erectile Dysfunction

Causative factors for pathology of Conium might be serious blow or fall, suppressed sexual desire, or from excessive indulgence.

Men have problems with the sexual organs as a consequence from suppressed sexual desire or the opposite, sexual excesses. They feel nervous and are unable to achieve full erection. They have no problem with the desire; it’s their power that betrays them.

The erections are feeble and too short. Men may ejaculate by mere presence of a woman or slight contact.

During ejaculation there is cutting pain in the urethra.
