It's the thing every man fears. Every time it happens, you wonder if it's going to happen every time from now on. Some men are haunted by the idea. And for many, it becomes an unfortunate fact of life that just won't go away. We're talking about ED: erectile dysfunction.
Some men are going to feel a little creeped out just reading those words as if just thinking about it can make it happen. Well, it can't, but stressing over it won't help you at all — in fact, stress is definitely one of the causes. There are many other potential causes for ED, both mental and biological. It is possible sometimes for ED to be an indicator of a more serious or even life-threatening condition, such as prostate cancer. But don't despair — in many cases, it's simply a result of other factors you can control at home.
Easily Treatable Causes of ED
Stress, poor diet, and lack of exercise can all lead to diminished blood flow to the penis. Sitting down all day is bad for your health in general, and you can look at ED as a sign that you need to make some positive changes in your life. You can learn to control stress through various means, including meditation, therapy, or anything that works for you. With time, you can teach yourself to leave all your stress outside of the bedroom, even if only temporarily. This is a skill that any man can learn, as long as you have the mental fortitude to practice it.
Some methods of de-stressing also solve the problem of lack of exercise, such as sports, martial arts, or hitting the gym. If you lead a sedentary life, such as working an office job, your penis isn't the only part of your body that can benefit from increased blood flow. Exercise is the answer to this. Not only will you help your circulation and the oxygenation of your body, you'll also get in better shape, which leads to further confidence in the bedroom and life in general.
A poor diet that puts you at risk for heart disease will also put you at risk for ED. Think about it — both conditions relate to the health of your blood vessels and the ease at which blood moves through your body. Cholesterol buildup harms your blood flow, which you already know can lead to a heart attack. It leads to ED as well, as your penis may not be able to receive enough blood to cause an erection. Drugs and drinking are also huge contributors to ED, so another lifestyle change might be in order.
Treating your ED through lifestyle changes actually provides the bonus of getting your entire mind and body in better shape at the same time. It's up to you to decide which is the better reward for your efforts.
Sometimes a lifestyle change isn't enough, and you're actually suffering from a hormone imbalance. In fact, a hormone imbalance can make lifestyle changes harder to implement in the first place, as you might find yourself lacking the energy and motivation to implement these changes.
The primary male hormone is testosterone, as we're sure you already know. Not only is it responsible for everything that happened to you in puberty, like facial hair and deepening of your voice, it also continues to govern your sexual function and much of the traits you may feel are part of being a man — like motivation, physical strength, and a healthy degree of aggression and ambition.
Physical weakness, lack of motivation, erectile dysfunction, and pretty much everything that makes you feel like less of a man are all mitigated by having more testosterone accessible to your body — which is great for your well-being too, because far too many men feel as if they've personally failed somehow when they have these problems. You haven't failed — hormone imbalances can happen to anybody.
If you naturally boost your testosterone, you can experience increased stamina, better mental focus, more muscle growth, stronger libido, and better erections and orgasms. You might find your day-to-day motivation coming back as you begin to feel more in tune with your body and mind, and how you feel they are supposed to be.
Boosting DHEA has shown promise as well since low DHEA is commonly found in men suffering from ED. Among other things, DHEA can also be converted to testosterone in the body when needed. If you use natural hormone boosters like those from ProBLEN, you can use both testosterone and DHEA boosters together safely.
Should You Go to the Doctor?
Many men are uncomfortable discussing erectile dysfunction with their doctor, but we did mention it can be a sign of a far worse medical condition. If you're having any other symptoms, like blood or semen showing up in your urine, definitely get checked out. If you have an actual illness, lifestyle changes and hormone boosters can still help you for sure, but you might also need medical attention. It's better to be safe than sorry.
If you're not experiencing any other symptoms and you've already identified things in this article that you can put into action in your own life, it's never too soon to get started. Try boosting your testosterone right away as you simultaneously put a workout routine or other lifestyle changes in effect.
