What to Know About Lamar Odom and Herbal Viagra

With the recent tragic news regarding former NBA star Lamar Odom, we thought it important to discuss the notion of “herbal” viagra. Who better to explain this topic than Dr. Geo, an expert in Holistic Urology and Men’s Health? An excerpt of his blog post is found below:

 

How big of a problem is the sexual supplement industry? A very big problem.

Virtually 25% or about 300 supplement formulas of sexual enhancement supplements aretainted with either Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. This is a very big problem for two main reasons:

1. Taking ED pharmaceuticals unknowingly can be deadly as they cause widening of the arteries. This can be harmless and even beneficial in moderation, but too much can lead to low blood pressure. Excessively low blood pressure stresses the heart.

2. The bad publicity also stains the good players in the supplement industry, those who make legitimate and safe sexual health supplements.

It’s important to note that NDs support patients in the safe use of supplements and herbal products, and that Ds afford one of the lowest malpractice ratings of any medical provider.


As Dr. Geo notes, incidents like this are not only tragic for those involved, but also set back the movement of those who offer safe methods to improve your health and well-being.
We encourage you to watch and listen to Dr. Geo’s brief video on the Odom tragedy, and be sure to watch the doctor’s full post regarding this issue (link found below).
