Erectile dysfunction (ED) is extremely common and affects around 10% of the male population. In an intimate relationship, ED can have an effect on trust and closeness, and often results in emotional and physical withdrawing because of fear of failure. Erectile dysfunction also affects the respective partner. “Is he no longer interested in me?”, “Does he no longer find me desirable?” and other negative thoughts can have the potential to uproot the most stable of relationships.
When Viagra was first introduced, it seemed like the miracle cure. One little blue pill to fix everything. However, later research discovered that while Viagra did work to deal with the erectile dysfunction itself, it was merely a band-aid, covering up the real root of the problem. At Xtend-Life, we understand the importance of tackling the root of health problems head-on, enabling you to claim the quality of life you deserve.
For the estimated 5 percent of 40-year-old men and 35 percent of 65-year-old men experiencing erectile dysfunction on a long-term basis, these are just some ways to safely and naturally reclaim your sex life, by addressing the root cause of your ED…not just the ED itself.
1. Get heart healthy
Did you know that erectile dysfunction is not an age-related condition? It’s true - age has nothing to do with it. It often comes down to a case of blood flow, that’s it. Unfortunately the blood flow required for maintaining erections is often hindered by various other health-related conditions brought on by poor health and lifestyle choices.
The penis needs a sufficient supply of blood in order to become erect, and the vessels need to close in order to maintain the erection. Hypertension, high cholesterol and heart disease all contribute to erectile dysfunction by adversely damaging and constricting blood vessels and affecting the way blood flows in and out of the penis.
The inability to get an erection is a classic sign of poor circulation in the small blood vessels. In fact, the connection between heart health and sexual health is so strong that erectile dysfunction can often be the first sign of cardiovascular disease in overweight men.
If you smoke, a quick way to boost blood flow is to quit. This increases circulation and has been shown to help with erectile dysfunction.
2. Slow down on the booze
While drinking can provide newfound confidence, research shows that alcohol may put a damper on your sex life.
Alcohol is a depressant, and consuming too much of it can dampen mood, decrease sexual desire, and make it difficult for a man to achieve erections or reach an orgasm.
The risk for long-term erectile dysfunction has also been linked to chronic heavy use of alcohol. In fact, studies show that men who are dependent on alcohol have a 60 to 70 percent chance of suffering from sexual problems. The most common of these are erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and loss of sexual desire.
3. Cut out stress
The sexual urge that causes you to have an erection starts in the brain. When there aren’t enough brain chemicals to stimulate the blood flow needed for an erection, erectile dysfunction results. Depression causes these brain chemicals to get out of balance, and that can mean you have less desire for sex — and that you can’t perform as well.
The first step in getting help for erectile dysfunction and depression is to address it with the right therapy. You can read more about this here.
4. Avoid medication where possible
Studies show that men who are on medication have a higher chance of having ED. Some drugs can have negative effects ‘downstairs’, while others make it more difficult to achieve an orgasm. This is especially the case with statin medication. Statin drugs often lower cholesterol to unhealthy levels. Unfortunately, these low levels of cholesterol can inhibit the production of sex hormones such as testosterone which plays an important role in both libido and sexual function.
5. Manage your testosterone
Testosterone is the main building block behind achieving and maintaining an erection. Testosterone signals for the release of nitric oxide, which improves the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. If testosterone is low, there is often not enough nitric oxide which can lead to erectile dysfunction.
A big contributing factor to lowered testosterone levels is the amount of estrogen look-alikes introduced to men on a daily basis. Many man-made chemicals in the environment mimic the estrogen in our bodies and are able to attach to the estrogen receptors on human cells. These xenoestrogens include many pharmaceutical drugs, industrial chemicals, agricultural chemicals and food additives. For example, regular consumption of foods and drinks containing tartrazine yellow food dye (E102) can cause hormonal upsets and a lowering of normal testosterone levels in both men and women. Many men unknowingly consume these estrogen look-alikes on a regular basis.
