Viagra Rules!

It can be quite a traumatic thing to realise that you need assistance with your body. Especially when the area where you need assistance is the intimate part of your body that needs a lift. We British, especially those of a certain age, can be quite reserved and don’t like talking about issues to do with their member. Todger, penis, man downstairs, whatever. It’s just that for the most part what we do (or don’t do) in the bedroom remains personal. Hidden.

So when, as happens with many millions of men worldwide, age, an unhealthy lifestyle and/or other factors crowd in to affect our “performance” in bed, we don’t want to discuss it with anyone. That’s why many older men suffer in silence (as do their partners) instead of grasping the nettle and seeking professional advice.

As arteries become older and more clogged it can become more difficult to inflate the penile barrage balloon and enjoy full sexual activity. If this begins to happen more and more often, don’t believe that it is mother nature calling time on sex. You can have great sex even in your seventies. It’s just that you need to get over the issue called erectile dysfunction (ED) which means the regular inability of the penis to respond to physical manipulation and become tumescent (erect) and then to have that erection sustained all through your sexual activity, permitting intercourse and ejaculation.

The first step is to go see your GP (General Practitioner) and discuss the issue with him (or her!). The other step you should take at the same time is to discuss it with your wife, or sexual partner. Let them know it’s not their fault, but just a common problem that is experienced by many men, and easily resolved. It is not that you don’t fancy them anymore it’s just that your tool kit below needs a bit of a jump start.

Hopefully your wife or partner will be understanding and support your seeking of some treatment to sort out your ED. Your GP will talk you through your medical history and any medications you are taking and advise you whether you are suitable for ED treatment. 80% of men will respond to oral tablets to treat ED, of which Viagra is the best known. He will give you a prescription and then you can buy the tablets at your local pharmacy or online.

The basic instructions are that you take a tablet about an hour before you are planning to have sexual activity, with a glass of water. You should then find that for the next five or so hours, any stimulation will produce a great erection that will last well throughout your period of sexual activity. There may be some side effects and if these become too troublesome you will need to chat with your GP about them. For many men, there are no side effects or the side effects are minor, and their ED is regularly and easily treated with Viagra.

Levitra is the One for Me!

As a man of fifty-something years, with three children and a loving wife, I had hoped that my physical relationship with my wife when the kids flew the nest, would continue. While we were both no Spring Chickens, and my wife had been through the menopause, we were still keen on maintaining our intimacy, and enjoying sex together.

I had read that some women lose interest in sexual activity after the menopause, but I was delighted to discover that my wife was still keen to maintain our love-making sessions. With no children around, we had the time, space and desire to actually increase the frequency of our sex sessions.  As I had taken early retirement, and my wife worked part-time, it seemed like we could look forward to a golden decade…  But I had not planned on being affected by ED- erectile dysfunction- the inability of a man to produce and maintain an erection.

It started off slowly at first, but as my anxiety levels rose, and doubt crept in, it became worse and it started to be weeks, then months, since my wife and I had engaged in satisfactory sex (ie penetration/sexual intercourse) that we could both enjoy.

Luckily my wife and I have a closeness and understanding, born of thirty years of marriage, and we spoke about the problem. I knew that I still desired to make love with her, and she encouraged me to consult the family GP. I did and he told me that ED was very common and treatable in the majority of people. I feared some kind of mechanical aid or prosthetic implant, but he explained that there were oral ED treatments readily available that should do the trick and without serious side effects being experienced by most men.

He suggested Levitra and I duly took my prescription to my High Street Pharmacy. I wondered if such a small yellow pill could really make a difference. I shouldn’t have doubted my GP. One pill, an hour or so before sex, and it was like the clock had been turned back ten years- I could achieve and keep a magnificent protuberance that delighted both me and my wife. There were virtually no side effects and I even managed to take a lesser dosage of the pill with no change in effect.

There are no long-term effects from taking the pill regularly (but no more than one in any 24 hour period) and so I can see my re-acquired successful sexual activity with my wife stretching on for years and years. I am very happy!

Nature versus Maker for ED Treatment

The Industrial Age brought the world out of the Bronze Age for the last time by instituting manufacturing on a global scale. Autos, steel, copper and coal fueled the nation. In the 1980’s, the Information Age accelerated progress in nearly every area of commerce to true hyperactive speed. The pharmaceutical industry was a player in the growth, and technology and information has given the human race elixirs, medicines and treatments about which earlier generations could only dream.

The medicine man

There was a movie in the theaters a few years back in which the cure for cancer was a secret held by Amazonian Sugar Ants. A scientist was frantically attempting to recreate his steps that led to a concoction, but time (and progress) was at his doorstep. The rain forest was losing acreage to clear cutting and the cure was lost. In our modern society, have we clear-cut the natural medicines out of our lives and pantries? The staff at the Mayo Clinic put together an article about herbal medicines and whether their claims to treating ED had merit. The study categorized the natural treatments into studied safe, studied risky and not studied. Surprisingly, DHEA, L-arginine and Ginseng all showed improvement regarding erectile dysfunction.

The medicine men

Today’s medicine men are still in the jungle, though it is made of concrete. No clear cuttings, just FDA approval delays, sideline the progress. The pharmaceutical companies produced their own remedies for ED that have become a billion dollar industry. Among the key players are Sildenafil, Tadalafil and Vardenafil. Doctors write prescriptions for each a consumer friendly name.

Two sides of one coin

Interestingly, both the herbs of the medicine man and the pills of the medicine men both show evidence of a positive effect on the male erection and both have a list of side effects, from mild to severe. For example, Sildenafil can cause dizziness because of lowered blood pressure. Yohimbe, bark from a type of tree in Africa has shown results when used to combat the negative effect anti depressant drugs.

Equal risk, equal reward

The curious fact about the comparison between natural, holistic approaches to fighting ED and the pharma angle of manufactured drugs, each warns of side effects as a result of their use.

Keep in mind; the choice you make concerning your treatment of ED is between you and your physician.

Erectile dysfunction: Is it all in your head?

In the age of cure all ills, there seems to be a pill for anything and everything. Mixed opinions exist between those who say we just finally found good drugs and those who state that many drugs have no use but its own prescription.

Viagra, Levitra and other erectile dysfunction medications offer to cure the symptoms of ED through the chemical changes the drug can make in the body. That is fine, but there is another cause of ED going unnoticed.

Besthealthmed.com posted a piece about the psychological effects on the erection capability of an average male. There is a little bit of irony as it relates to the psychosis surrounding erectile dysfunction. Supposing you are a man who is anxious about how he is going to perform because he is worried that he will not – finds out he cannot, which leads to more anxiety. Is there a way out?

Mind over matter

Anxiety is not the only psychological condition that results in ED. There are others, though they are on the same spectrum of the light wheel as anxiety. Depression, which has many forms (MDD – major depressive disorder) Manic Depression and mood disorders is certainly capable of taming an erection, while low self esteem and stress can do the damage as well. As the article states, the easy part of treating impotence is to add a Levitra or Viagra (Sildenafil) and wham, no more problem.

Is the symptom, not the cure

Yes treating ED with a PDE5 inhibitor (these ED drugs) works, but that is simply a subduing of symptoms temporarily. Stress has been proven to damage the human physique, whether it is heart disease, stroke, ED, hypertension. A fully erect person with Social Anxiety about the whole thing finds no cure, just temporary action.

A pleasant chain reaction can occur because of what besthealthmed.com calls the “authentic treatments”, namely Viagra, Levitra. Supposing your confidence was low due to your erectile dysfunction. If you were able to take a pill and end that, you would then feel the willpower to continue solving your ED problems for sure. (Best Health Med, 2013)

As a reminder, ED is the inability for blood vessel relaxation, which increases blood flow to the penis. Levitra and the others simply instigate the process of relaxation, but the body is still the entity that is acting. So, when you are considering ED treatment, consider all treatments, including psychology.

Boost Your Sex Life with Cialis

Cialis

Erectile Dysfunction, ED, is also known as impotence.  It means that a man cannot achieve or sustain an erection long enough to have satisfactory sexual intercourse (or other sexual activity). Occasionally most men will find that they cannot get an erection or kept their penis hard for the duration of sex. This can be caused by a variety of temporary factors; “brewer’s Droop”, feeling stressed or tired, or simply not fancying having sex. ED is when this becomes the norm rather than the odd occasion.  ED is often found in older men and in olden days it used to be though that it was just your bodies way of saying “you’re now too old for sex”! Utter rubbish! However ED can be quite debilitating and affect your happiness, and your relationships with those around you, including your partner.  It can be a lonely and frustrating experience; it sometimes feels as though you have been betrayed by your own body.

But this all changed in the mid 1990s. The good news is that for more than 70% of men, ED should no longer be a problem because it is treatable. There is a simple and effective remedy that provides a practical physical solution to ED, most often with no or very mild side effects. Let’s welcome Cialis which is going to boost your sex life. How does Cialis work?

Cialis is one of a group of ED treatments known as the “phosphodiesterase inhibitors”.  Studies were done on a molecule called Nitric Oxide and on the ability of this molecule to cause relaxation of a crucial muscle in the penis. To create an erection a man must first receive stimulation of the central nervous system from the brain, by visual stimuli or by physically touching the genital area. This begins a biochemical reaction in the penis causing the blood vessels and the muscle cells to relax. With stimulation, there is the release of the nitrous oxide molecule. This release causes a chain of events which leads to the relaxation of these muscle cells to allow more blood to flow into them. The penis becomes longer, larger and more rigid. Cialis prevents premature reversal of this process before sexual activity has been completed (for example, by ejaculation).

So much for the detail of the chemical/physiological process- but in layman terms what is the practical effect of Cialis?  Simply put, for the majority of men, Cialis will, with sexual stimulation, provide an erection within thirty minutes of taking the tablet. It also has a bonus effect that further sexual stimulation in the next 36 hours is likely to produce the same effect: No wonder it is known as the Weekend Wake-up! That doesn’t mean that you’ll have an erection that won’t go away in all of that time, but each time sexual stimulation is provided in that time frame, the active ingredient of the drug will still be in your body, and cause the desired effect.

Cialis

It is important to discuss your wish to take Cialis with your GP or consult a qualified clinician/pharmacist.  Cialis isn’t suitable for everyone and can have some side effects. This is why Cialis is a prescription only drug. You’ll need to see your doctor and discuss with him/her whether it is suitable. You’ll also want to be made aware of the side effects that some people experience with Cialis. Generally these are reported to be less of a problem than with Viagra- but everyone is individual and for some the reverse is true.

The bottom line is that Cialis is a success story- for a large majority of men, Cialis has improved their sex life, and along with it, their happiness and contentment, and those of their partner.

Levitra:The Facts

levitra

Levitra is an oral tablet for treating erectile dysfunction (ED). It is known as a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor. It works by helping to increase blood flow into the penis during sexual stimulation and then keeping it there until sexual activity has subsided. In short Levitra helps you to achieve and maintain an erection.

While Levitra is suitable for most men, you should consult your General Practitioner before acquiring Levitra.  This is important, particularly if you have any of the following medical issues:

v  Heart problems (eg angina)

v  Low or high blood pressure,

v  Severe liver problems

v  Severe kidney problems (that require dialysis)

v  Hereditary degenerative eye problems (eg, retinitis pigmentosa)

v  You are taking  medicationwith a nitrate in it or are taking other PDE5 inhibitor drugs such as Cialis, Viagra, Sildenafil, Tadalafil or Vardenafil.

This list isn’t exhaustive. This is why it is important to consult your doctor before commencing Levitra and discuss your medical history and any medications you are taking. If after taking Levitra you feel unwell, stop taking it and see your doctor to discuss what happened. It should be stressed that the majority of men are able to take Levitra without any problems, or with just some minor side effects. But it is better to be safe than sorry- that is why you need a prescription from a qualified medical practitioner before taking Levitra.

Taking Levitra couldn’t be simpler. You take a Levitra tablet about an hour before your planned sexual activity. It can be taken with water of with food, without any discernible effect on its impact. One tablet will last for about four hours, but men often report that its effects can still be experienced 12, 24 or even 36 hours after taking the tablet.

Like other ED treatments such as Cialis and Viagra, Levitra can cause side effects in some men. It may cause dizziness, drowsiness, fainting, or blurred vision. Alcohol, hot weather, exercise, or fever may increase these effects. To prevent them, sit up or stand slowly, especially in the morning. Sit or lie down at the first sign of any of these effects and tell your doctor. It may also cause flushing of the face, headache, heartburn, a stuffy or runny nose and an upset stomach. If any of these possible side effects are more than mild, then talk to your GP.

Levitra

Only one tablet should be taken in a 24 hour period. However tests have shown that regularly taking Levitra in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions has no long-lasting effects and the desired effect- the treatment of ED- is not diminished in its efficacy due to continuous use over a prolonged period.

Levitra is a small yellow tablet and genuine Levitra comes with detailed instructions on how to use it. Beware of cheap imitations of Levitra from unscrupulous suppliers. Not only will the fake Levitra not treat your ED, it can contain chemicals that are dangerous to your health. Stick with a pharmacy supplier that you know and trust, or has been in business for some time.

Health – Can High Fat Be Okay?

Image courtesy of [imagerymajestic] / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

There are many reasons for erectile dysfunction, but one of the most common is that the blood vessels and arteries get clogged with cholesterol and plaque, which makes life very difficult for the men who are trying to live a better lifestyle that is free from impotence. In any case, these men are often the ones who have the worst diet and many of them are wondering whether a high fat diet can be okay for their health and their erections. In the following article, we will explain to you how fat can be okay for your body and how it can actually be healthier in order for you to live.

Fat and Health

The most important thing to realize when talking about fat in your diet is that it is not all created equally. You need a certain amount of the good fats while the bad fats are not something that you need to worry much about eating. Some of the good fats include omega 3 fatty acids, which are rich in the types of amino acids that your body needs in order to have a healthy brain function. Even though you may not feel as though it is a good idea to get this type of fat from fish, nuts, and oils, it is actually far healthier than you imagine. That food pyramid you saw at a young age was absolutely wrong.

Also, you need to make sure that you are focused on removing the kinds of fats that are going to be bad for the body. Get the high fat steaks out of your body completely so that you can prevent any blockage to your arteries and blood vessels. High sugar and carbohydrates can actually be factors that increase the amount of fat that your body produces, which is something that is absolutely and unequivocally bad for your body.

Men who are trying to have a healthy life and sex life with their partner need to be sure they are watching how many calories they are getting from the wrong types of fats. It is easy to eat the wrong fats when most of the food you find in the store is actually corn fed meat. Either way, it is important for you to focus on getting all of the things in your life taken care of so that you can have a much better time at the end of the day.

Health – Can Goji Berries Increase Sex Health?

For the majority of men and women, modern medicine produces a number of great prescription drugs for sex, but does not offer the right amount of safety when it comes to the chemicals that are involved. Many people are unhappy with the idea that prescription pills for sexual health can be detrimental to their wellbeing. Luckily, there are foods that can help where these drugs are unable to do so. Goji berries are the latest food craze that can help you to increase your sexual health within a very limited period of time. If you are focused on getting over the problem then you should follow the instructions we are providing in the article below.

Goji Berries and Sex Health

Sexual health comes from a number of different things, but getting the right foods will definitely help as well. One of the latest crazes in the western world is an eastern berry called a goji berry, which is helpful in increasing the libido in order to have a much better experience while having sex and to increase the desire to have sex. Even though you are not faced with a huge number of problems in the bedroom, it could never hurt to have goji berries on your side as well.

The goji berries are filled with some specific concoction of vitamins and minerals that make them delicious and at the same time very effective for increasing the desire to have sex. This is an important aspect of the berry, but it only takes 25 – 50 of them in order to do the job. The goji berries are very small and you can get hundreds for only a couple of dollars. If you spend the money wisely, you can probably get a week’s worth of goji berries for only a few dollars.

At the end of the day, it is important for you to make sure you are getting all of the assistance that you need in order to be healthy with your lifestyle. Even though there are many things that you can do in order to get over your lack of sexual health, getting a fair number of goji berries will be a good first step. Make sure you are focused on doing all of these things and you’ll have a much better job than you would have ever expected yourself getting no matter what the case is. – Source

Health – Can Foods Prevent Healthy Sex?

There are a number of foods that are detrimental to your health, but few people make the connection between bad sex and these unhealthy foods. It is a good idea for you to know what foods will actively harm your sex life if you are not careful. The best types of foods will help you to prevent the problems with your sex life that most people really dread. It is a good idea to pay attention in the following article, as we will be discussing what types of foods will prevent you from having a healthy sex life.

Sex and Food

Your sex life, if you are a male or female, is governed by the ability to get blood flowing to your reproductive organs. Males need to get the blood in order to have an erection and females need to have the blood to have a better orgasm and sensation. Either way, there are some foods that will hamper this activity greatly. You need to make sure you are putting all of your will into getting the right blood flow to your reproductive organs.

This means that you need to cut out the cholesterol and the plaque that is located within your body. You will quickly realize that this is the type of thing that can only be done by preventing certain foods from entering your diet. For example, the unhealthy foods that you eat, such as the fried foods and high sugar things, are all going to lead to blockages in your blood vessels. This is why it is a good idea for you to get the sexual intercourse that you need without eating this type of food.

If you continue to eat the wrong foods, you will be faced not only with erectile and sex problems, but you will also have a serious health risk on your hands. Men who are unable to get rid of the bad food in their diet often find that they are faced with a number of sexual problems. It is a good idea to make the correlation immediately and change things so that you are in a better situation. Just because you avoid the foods that cause sexual problems does not mean that you are going to be able to have a great sex life. Still it is a good chance that this will help you immensely with this endeavor.

Erectile Dysfunction – Can Erectile Dysfunction Hurt My Health?

Image courtesy of [imagerymajestic] / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

There is a lot of confusion in the erectile dysfunction world and how the different conditions that we have can cause a variety of different other ailments. In the case of erectile dysfunction, many sufferers incorrectly think that it can actually cause even worse symptoms of health in other parts of the body. While there is no doubting that erectile dysfunction is a major concern and can cause you to lose sexual health, it is actually more likely like some other poor health attribute is causing the erectile dysfunction. In this article, we will focus on some of the health issues that you might face on a daily basis that will help you to avoid the erectile dysfunction that might come with it.

Health and Erectile Dysfunction

From a health perspective, you need to make sure that you are doing a few things when it comes to erectile dysfunction. The blood flow from the body to the penis is resigned to the cardiovascular system, which is responsible for pumping everything to one place. You need to make sure that you are focused on encouraging this system to do the best job that it can do. This means removing all the plaque and cholesterol from your body, which is currently blocking the blood now.

However, if this is a problem, then there is a much more serious heart health risk that you need to contemplate. If you are having problems with your heart, there are issues you have to deal with that relate to heart attacks and other problems that are not only bad for you day, but can be life threatening in many instances. Make sure that you focus on this type of condition so that you can save your life, but know that erectile dysfunction is a side effect that might give you the time you need to make changes.

Erectile Dysfunction and General Wellbeing

If you are trying to maintain a disposition of maintaining a healthy attitude, you might want to get rid of erectile dysfunction as soon as possible. Even though you will benefit greatly from having sex from a pleasure standpoint, you will also have a much better time dealing with stress and other important things if you can get rid of erectile dysfunction. Your general wellbeing is at risk if you do not spend the proper time having sex with your partner. More importantly, your partner is not going to be very happy with the results that you have provided for her either. Make sure that you are accomplishing all of these tasks if you really want to get anything done. If you are not focused on this aspect of your life, you will have a much harder time relieving stress and living carefree.

Your general wellbeing is largely dependent on a number of things, but physical interaction is definitely one of them. If you are going to get any better from your erectile dysfunction, you need to make sure that you are taking the time to focus on other aspects of your health as well. All of these things will have a very significant impact on the way that you live your life.
