It’s the duty of several different parts of your body to help you obtain and sustain an erection.
Sometimes erectile dysfunction or ED is caused by medical conditions. But sometimes, lifestyle decisions can be the cause. There are plenty of medical services available for ED, but certain improvements in lifestyle can also help.
Risk factors for lifestyle in developing ED
The following risk factors will make an erection more difficult for you to get or maintain.
- poor diet
- sedentary lifestyle
- excessive drinking
- relationship issues
- psychological issues
Treating ED with a changed lifestyle
Consider the lifestyle changes that will help cure your erectile dysfunction:
Eat a healthy diet
A poor diet can do more than just impact your energy level. It can also lead to clogged arteries, heart disease, and diabetes. All these are known risk factors in the ED. A balanced diet can increase blood flow across the whole body including the penis. Try cutting fats and sugars down and adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet. Keeping a healthy weight will help increase your ED.
Five days a week, including only 30 minutes of exercise will improve your health inside and out of the bedroom. Exercising helps to relieve tension and raise levels of energy. It also increases circulation and helps keep the heart and heart safe.
Men who smoke cigarettes have a significantly higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction according to one study. People who quit smoking were more likely than those who kept smoking to have ED symptoms improved.
Deal with stress and relationship issues
The stress of some kind may have an effect on the sexual health of a man and his ability to engage in intercourse. Resentment and frustration can also lead to the failure to get an erection and enjoy satisfying sex in a relationship. Speak to your partner or even a therapist about their issues. It may have positive effects on ED.
Have your doctor change your medications
Some medicines such as antidepressants and specific blood pressure medicines can cause ED. Speak to your doctor about your drugs and what your choices may be. A decreased dosage or a shift to another type of medication is often all that is required to enhance sexual function.
Continue to engage in sexual activity
It can be frustrating when you are having trouble getting erections. However, remaining sexually active is critical for preventing further ED problems. Sexual excitement and regular erections will increase blood flow to the penis even if not long-lasting or strong enough.
Along with improvements in lifestyle, there are available natural remedies for treating ED. The following are some supplements that were tested and proved secure. Even they can be useful in treating ED.
Dehydroepiandrosterone is a drug known to help with erectile dysfunction. When taken in low doses it’s considered healthy. Acne can be a side effect.
A Panax ginseng study found this to enhance sexual function in men with ED. The main side effect of insomnia is.
There is some evidence suggesting high doses of this amino acid can cause blood vessels to flow better through the penis. Gastrointestinal side effects are likely, such as diarrhea, cramping, and nausea. You can not take this natural treatment at the same time as Sildenafil or similar drugs.
Be careful with supplements
Many of the dietary supplements which are branded as “natural” ED remedies have not proved successful or even safe. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported that it has been found that many of these products contain sildenafil, the active ingredient in Fildena.
These can be harmful to others and should be avoided. Fildena can not be taken with certain drugs, so it’s best to speak to the doctor before taking a drug like Fildena or a supplement that might contain similar Fildena ingredients.
Speak to the doctor before taking any ED drugs, or even ED supplements that are supposed to be all-natural.
