Erectile dysfunction also called, ED, is very common among men. More than most men would like to admit probably.
While it is not out of the ordinary for a man to sometimes have trouble getting or maintaining an erection, frequent problems could be a sign of underlying problems. If you are noticing that you are having problems more often, it is important for you to visit the doctor.
Thankfully for men, erectile dysfunction is easy to treat, and if you take steps right away, your sex life will be back to normal in no time.
There are natural ways to help keep you healthy (sexually) and to help prevent ED from happening and disrupting your life.
Preventing ED is all about staying ahead of it. Here are 10 things you can do to help prevent ED at home:
Weight plays an important role in all aspects of your health. Obesity can lead to high cholesterol, clogged arteries, heart disease, as well as restricting blood flow to many areas of your body – this means your genitals! Not getting enough blood flow can hinder your ability to get an erection.
By eating a healthier diet, you can shed those unwanted pounds. Just by cutting back on refined sugar and flour, full-fat dairy and red meat you can create a cleaner diet. Adding grains, fruits, and vegetables as well as appropriate portion sizes will help you maintain a healthy diet.
When you have high blood pressure, it narrows your blood vessels which in turn makes your heart strain and work harder to effectively pump blood throughout your body. And without proper blood flow to the veins in your penis, it will be hard to get an erection.
Studies show that men who smoke have 50% more chance to develop ED, rather than those who do not. It has also been reported that medications to help treat ED may not work as well on those who smoke.
While a glass or two of wine can be good for your sex drive, drinking an excessive amount of alcohol can prevent you from getting a full erection. Alcohol is a depressant and can hinder you in your sexual endeavors.
Regular exercise is good for your whole body; it not only keeps your heart healthy but also keeps your blood vessels healthy and can lower stress levels. Even doing an exercise at home, or a short walk can help keep you healthy. It doesn’t necessarily matter how extreme the work out is, but more that it is something regular.
Stress can affect every aspect of your life from work, relationships and even your finances. By reducing your stress levels you could increase your sex drive.
Many prescriptions have a side effect of erectile dysfunction. It is important to be aware of what you are taking and possible side effects. If you think your ED could be a side effect of one of your medications it is important to talk to your doctor about possible solutions.
As testosterone levels begin to decrease it can not only affect your sex drive but also the ability to get and keep an erection. Your doctor can do a blood test to determine whether or not you have low testosterone.
It is important to be aware of your health and take the necessary steps to be proactive with your health!
Having ED does not mean that your sex life is over. ED is curable, and once you are able to discover the cause of your ED, your life can improve greatly.
Even with a healthy lifestyle, you might need testosterone therapy to help improve your sex drive.
