Alternative medicine - erectile dysfunction

Several alternative treatments are being investigated for potential to alleviate erectile dysfunction, but their safety and effectiveness are not proved. They include:
DHEA, a hormone that's a building block for testosterone
Like mainstream medications and treatments, these alternative approaches also have risks and side effects — especially for men who have chronic health problems or take other medications.
Some alternative products that claim to work for erectile dysfunction can be dangerous. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings about several "herbal Viagras" including True Man, Energy Max, Rhino Max, Rhino VMax and Libidus. These contain potentially harmful drugs that aren't listed on the label. These drugs can interact with prescription drugs and cause dangerously low blood pressure. These products are especially dangerous for men who take prescription drugs that contain nitrates.
