Can Erectile Dysfunction Be Reversed?
It’s generally believed that erectile dysfunction (impotence or “ED”) is likely to become an increasing problem for men as the years pass. Fortunately, it’s also true that young and older men alike can reduce the chances of ED happening to them by making appropriate lifestyle changes.
Overweight and ED
For example, being seriously overweight does not only pose a significant danger to your health. It also makes it much more likely that you’ll suffer a problem with impotence. One reason is that you very possibly eat saturated-fat-rich or cholesterol-rich foods. This could lead to the narrowing of blood vessels throughout the body.
Achieving an erection can only happen when your body is able to engorge your penis with sufficient blood. When your blood supply is compromised, so will be your chance of achieving an erection.
Being overweight leads to high blood pressure, which is often cited as a cause of ED.
If you’re in this situation, there’s a simple solution – make some adjustments to your lifestyle. You have to develop healthier eating habits so that you can lose a significant amount of excess weight if you wish to get rid of your impotence problem. Living a healthier life could also mean you’ll enjoy a longer one.
Smoking and ED
Similarly, smoking can cause untold damage throughout your body. This damage will inevitably be reflected in poorer sexual performance. Remember that smoking affects your cardiovascular system. This can hinder the flow of blood to the genital area, reducing your chances of achieving an erection.
Alcohol and ED
Consuming alcohol might give a man the false courage he needs to get into a situation where a sexual encounter becomes a distinct possibility. However, it may also reduce his ability to “perform”, as many men have learned to their cost. In the long term, you can expect excessive alcohol consumption to cause serious damage to your body. The inevitable result will be an inability to perform sexually when required.
It is an accepted fact that a man’s sexual performance will deteriorate over the years. However, by cleaning up your act and improving your lifestyle, you can delay such deterioration for as long as possible.
The solution is simple and straightforward. For many men who suffer from erectile dysfunction, the natural support for sexual function they are looking for involves nothing more than living a healthier lifestyle.
