1. We would like to congratulate you that you are the first and the only person with this request.
2. It is generally no advisable as, it interfere with the normal functioning of the Body. Impotence is the inability to perform sex. It is directly controlled by the Kidneys. It is not recommended to interfere the normal functioning of the Kidneys. Other organs like the Heart and the Brain may also get affected. However, It is possible that you want to have sex and do not wish to wear a condom. Meaning thereby, that you want male contraceptive. If that be the case, please let us know and that will be advisable.

I am a 24 year old with PCOS. I drink chamomile tea with humulus lupulus as one of its ingredients. Can humulus lupulus worsen my PCOS? does it increase my esteogen levels?
03 Dec 2019
Dear Humulus Lupulus is effective for difficult menses. However, for PCOS, you can try the following: 1. Take Ashoka tonic for 1 month.
2. Take Chaste Berry tea every day. Take it for 1 month.
3. Buy Dong Quai pills and 1 tablet every day for 15 days. You can continue taking Chamomile tea. Consume it once in 2 days. Excess or regular dosage for long can bring certain side effects. However, please check the individual pages of herbs for more information on the effects. Do not take while menstruating. Write back after 1 month for further assistance.

Can you be so kind to tell me if you have a cure for tinnitus?
02 Apr 2020
Hey Milha. I suggest you to go for homeopathic medicine. Depending on more specifications as the type of sound you hear, what aggravates it and what gives you relief. Meanwhile, you can take Gingko Biloba capsules, take 2 everyday. Putting Sesame oil, 1-2 drops also provides relief from sound sensation.
