Today I want to talk to you about ad erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence. This is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex having erection trouble from time to time isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, but if erector dysfunction is ongoing, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of underlying health conditions, of course, that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease. So if you’re concerned about erectile dysfunction, talk to your doctor, even if you’re embarrassed, sometimes treating underlying conditions is enough to reverse ed. In other cases, medications or other direct treatments might be needed and have in mind. This is very common and no, it shouldn’t be, but this is very common. More than 3 million us cases are reported each year and the symptoms include getting trouble. I mean trouble. Getting an erection, trouble, keeping an erection, reduce sexual desire went to see a doctor. I would recommend a family doctor is a good place to start when you’re having erection problems so see your doctor. If you have concerns about your erections or you are experiencing other sexual problems such as premature ejaculation, if you have diabetes, heart disease or any other known heart condition or health condition that might be linked to ed and the causes of course, are many, but mainly the male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and, of course, blood vessels. So ed can result from a problem with any of these. Likewise, stress and mental health concerns can cause a worsen, ed and, of course, sometimes, a combination of physical and psychological issues causes aed, for instance, okay, a minor physical condition that slows your sexual response might cause anxiety about maintaining an erection. Not so this resulting anxiety can lead to worsen your ed, so you have physical causes of erectile dysfunction. In many cases, okay, erectile dysfunction is caused by something physical, and these common causes include heart disease, clogged blood vessels. Remember this area need a lot of blood flow, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity metabolic syndrome. This is a condition involving increased blood pressure, high insulin levels, body fat around the waistline and high cholesterol. Then you have parkinson’s disease, certain prescription medications. Of course, tobacco use especially long term pyronis disease. This is the development of scar tissue inside the penis, alcohol and other forms of substance, abuse, sleep disorders, treatments for prostate cancer or enlarged, prostate and, of course, surgeries or injuries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord low cholesterol. And of course, we have the psychological causes of ed. Like I say previously, the brain plays a key role in triggering the series of physical events that causes an erection so starting with feelings of sexual excitement. A number of things can interfere with the sexual feelings and cause or worsen ed, and these include depression, anxiety or any other mental health condition really, such as stress relationship problems due to stress again, poor communication or other concerns within the relationship and, of course, risk factors as you get older, erections might take longer to develop and might not be as far so. Various risk factors can contribute to erectile dysfunction. That includes that, I say previously. Tobacco use, which restricts the blood flow to the veins and arteries and can over time cause chronic health conditions that lead to ed being overweight, especially if you’re obese now certain medical treatments, such as prostate surgery or radiation treatment for cancer injuries, particularly if they damage the nerves or arteries that control erections medications, including antidepressants, antihistamines and medications to treat high blood pressure, pain or prostate conditions. The psychological conditions I mentioned before the stress, anxiety, depression now: dragon alcohol use, especially if you’re, long-term drug user or heavy drinker complications resulting from ed, can include not being able to satisfy your partner. So that’s leaving you within satisfactory sex life, stress anxiety being caused by that again embarrassment or low self-esteem relationship problems, the inability to get your partner pregnant, so this can cause some heavy problems. Of course, we’re going to talk about prevention and the best way to prevent ed is to make healthy lifestyle choices and to manage any existing health conditions. For example, work with your doctor to manage your diabetes heart disease or other chronic health conditions, see a doctor for regular checkups and medical screening tests, stop smoking, okay, stop smoking limit or avoid alcohol, and, of course, drugs exercise regularly. It helps take steps to reduce stress, get help for anxiety, depression or any other mental health concerns that you may have or suffering from now. Ed can be cured. Okay in summary.

Go away completely without needing medication like viagra. So what is the main cause? Well, erections mainly involve the blood vessels like I said before, and the most common causes for ed in all the men are conditions that block the blood flow to the penis. These include hardening of the arteries and, of course, diabetes and other causes, may be faulty veins that lets blood drain too quickly from the penis, causing the penis not to be firm enough, of course, or holding the erection long enough. Now, it’s normal to experience a weaker erections as one gets older, but if you’re old, male and you’re experiencing this go to an expert to get medical advice, diagnosis, prescriptions for medication that can make your erection stronger and, of course, nature has so much to give the nacho viagra is considered to be the watermelon.

Much like viagra and other drugs meant to treat erector dysfunction. Bananas bananas are high in potassi. Okay, bananas also contain lots of flavonoids research found that men who eat at least three flavonoids rich foods per week on an average were 10 percent, less likely to experience ed.
