Erectile Dysfunction: How to Naturally Beat Erectile Dysfunction


Erectile dysfunction or ED is a condition that can affect men of all ages. Defined as the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is suitable for intercourse, this condition can have a profound effect on a man’s self image. While medical treatment is necessary in some cases to correct the problem, there are also a number of natural ways to make positive changes in your life and restore your sexual vitality.


1. Get a Checkup


Before you can begin any real effort to improve the quality of your erections, it helps to know what types of obstacles are in the way. Start with a complete physical examination. Specifically, you want to know if there is any ongoing health issue such as diabetes that may be contributing to the problem. Another topic to specifically address is the matter of cholesterol in your bloodstream. Too much bad cholesterol will definitely interfere with erections. Whatever the doctor finds, use that information to make some lifestyle changes that promote better general health and have a direct impact on your sexual health.

 

2. Get Rid of the Spare Tire


The fact is that the wider the waistline, the greater the potential that you will find yourself dealing with ED. Carrying around extra pound is not good for your heart or your circulatory system. In terms of your ability to perform, anything that interferes with blood flow to the penis is your enemy.

 

3. Change Your Diet


What you eat has a direct impact on your weight and your general well being. A diet that is high in simple carbs and foods laden with cholesterol is not doing your heart any good. At the same time, those foods are sabotaging your ability to get the most from sexual encounters. 

 

Rework your daily eating habits so that you dump all the foods with empty calories and fat. Load your plate with lean meats, legumes that are high in protein and plenty of fresh green vegetables. When you want bread, opt for whole grains instead of bleached flour products. Before long, you will notice that your waistline is beginning to shrink and that you have more energy.

 

4. Exercise Daily


Exercise will accomplish a lot of things, including reversing ED. Thirty minutes a day of moderate exercise will help to keep your blood sugar levels moderated and promote the manufacture of good cholesterol in the blood. At the same time, exercise will help to clear bad cholesterol from your system. 

 

Along with the physical benefits, exercise is also a tonic for the brain. We all know that sex begins in the brain, so why not clear out the cobwebs and make sure that all of you is ready and in the mood? If your mind is ready for sex, your body is more likely to cooperate. 

 


5. Don’t Forget the Kegels


Kegel exercises are designed to help strengthen your pelvic muscles. Strong pelvic muscles help to promote health blood flow and also provide you with more stamina for sex. The great think about kegels is that you can do them anytime and anywhere without others noticing. These simple contractions in conjunction with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise can do wonders for your ability to perform. 

 

Keep in mind that your erectile dysfunction did not develop overnight. This means it will take some time for natural methods to reverse the situation and restore your ability to achieve and maintain an erection all the way to ejaculation. Be patient and stick with the program. When you begin to see results, all your efforts will pay off in a big way.
