Is your SEX-life not so spectacular, due to Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile dysfunction is a permanent or occasional incapability to accomplish the erection, necessary for sexual intercourse. It can manifest at any age! ED has a negative effect on the state of mind of self-worth, and in general of quality of life, leading to mental issues such as extreme nervousness, anxiety, aggression, and/or depression.

The causes of ED can be Mental impotence which is the main cause of dysfunction in younger men. Or Hormonal impotence which is mainly in cases of the older population.

Conventional medication treatments (Viagra, Cialis, Sildenafil, etc.) are the first aid, offered by medical professionals, which can temporarily or permanently outcome in a very good reliable effect in physical sexual activity and also in terms of reestablishing self-confidence and improving quality of life, but these chemical drugs are with high health risks especially if one already had a heart attack, brain stroke, etc.

Italian researchers suggest that there may be a solution for successfully treating and healing ED in a natural way and without side-effects. Natural medicine for treating ED is the Light therapy. The recent study was focused on persons with Sexual Arousal Disorder and/or Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, which are the two conditions considered by a lack of interest in sex. Every morning, for 30 minutes respectively, the group of selected men was exposed to the bright light of 10,000 lux – such as for instance BIOPTRON® Medical Light. (For comparison, direct sunlight can reach up to 100,000 lux, and a cloudy day is about 1,000 lux.)

After only two weeks, the men that were treated with bright light stated sexual satisfaction scores that were three times higher than when they began the research. The tests have shown an increase in their testosterone levels, which is vital to increasing libido, says doctor Andrea Fagiolini, M.D., of the University of Siena.

When your body is exposed to bright light of 10.000 LUX, it produces more of a chemical Luteinizing hormone (LH) which can lead to better secretion of testosterone hormone.

How the Light Therapy can improve erectile function?

Erectile dysfunction involves a lack of blood flow into the penis. Many scientists note that vasodilation (increased blood flow) is stimulated by light therapy and that ED can be improved by light therapy, since light improves blood circulation and vascular dilation, allowing greater blood flow to the penis.

  • Red light can improve production of nitric oxide (NO), and stimulate the process of ATP – adenosine triphosphate which improves cellular metabolism and Increases cellular energy, allowing cells to produce optimum energy in the whole body, thus as well in the penis.
  • NO production in the penis leads via interactions with guanylyl cyclase, to significantly improved production of the substance cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) which support the muscles to relax, leading to increased blood flow, and erection in the penis.
  • Red-light also helps improve testosterone, which sustain the erection.



  • ~ A broad range of wavelengths from 480 to 3400 nm, containing the color range of visible light wavelengths inclusive a part of the infrared spectrum. Different light wavelengths penetrate the skin at different depths, activating cells, accelerating local blood circulation, and stimulating the whole body’s regenerative processes:
  • 400-600 nm triggers melatonin secretion
  • 480-500 nm Reactive Oxigen Species ROS
  • 400-500 nm antibacterial effect
  • 525 nm eliminates melanosomes (skin cells that contain melanin)
  • 480-780 nm Improves growth factors & immunomodulation
  • 633-640 nm increase ATP production, skin regeneration
  • 660 nm improves collagen production
  • 480-740 nm anti-inflammatory effect
  • 480-780 nm improves Microcirculation
  • 830 nm tissue repair
  • 900 nm promotes peripheral vasodilatation, improving deep circulation, treats Erectile Dysfunction
  • 780-3400 nm improves systemic microcirculation


Applying light directly to the genital area is for men not recommended (only for women).

An enough dosage of light on the following parts of the body (3 significant Energy centers), can lead to the beneficial effects that are mentioned above.

ED treatment includes daily exposure

  1. Manipura Energy center/ solar plexus 3 minutes
  2. Anahata Energy center/ sternum 6 minutes
  3. Ajna Energy center/ the space between the eyebrows 9 minutes
