How is sexual dysfunction from psychological causes treated in alternative medicine?

The FDA does not recommend alternative therapies (i.e. those that have not received FDA approval) to treat sexual dysfunction

Many products are advertised as “herbal viagra” or “natural” sexual enhancement products, but no clinical trials or scientific studies support the effectiveness of these products for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, and synthetic chemical compounds similar to sildenafil have been found as adulterants in many of these products. The United States Food and Drug Administration has warned consumers that any sexual enhancement product that claims to work as well as prescription products is likely to contain such a contaminant
