The delicate question,Is it ED?

Of late , I've had several men share with me their concern that their , ahem , "Little General" hasn't quite been himself lately.

As hard as that may have been to share with me , a tantrika , who is very comfortable with the male body , it's  functions and otherwise..there may be many more men who don't feel secure enough to share concerns with me . I will attempt to dispel rumors , myths and hopefully your fears in regard to this extremely important subject to every breathing male. 

Men can be their toughest critics when it comes to their performance 'in between the sheets'. The unsettling fear of not being able to rise to the occasion can become a recurring nightmare for men that is often equated with failure , loss of dignity and masculinity. If you suffer from some amount of erectile dysfunction (ED) , cut yourself some slack ! Improvement can be achieved with simple steps and also ,without having to rely on Cialis or other risky medications . So , whether you presently suffer from ED , or just seek tips to prevent it , here are some simple ways to beat impotence without the risk of side effects of medications.

1. Take the time to obtain relief from your stressors , career , home , whatever they may be and scheduling  regular body massages . The relaxation benefit is not just tremendously benficial overall physically and emotionally , it is goes even deeper than many of you are aware .For instance, the release of pleasure chemicals in the brain , seratonin , endorphins , dopamine and oxytocin  , improved circulation and oxygenation of your red blood cells all have a positive impact on your sexual organs as well !

This 'relaxation response' significantly decreases the effects of stress and reduces the risks associated with stress which could be sexual dysfunction , hypertension , heart arrhythmias , anxiety, insomnia , persistent fatigue , digestive disorders and some psychological issues- just to name a few !  All this with a massage !

2.Which also brings me to the next point , simple exercise. Many men will walk all over God's green earth in order to boost their sexual performance and enhance their sex life . Luckily men , that is often all you have to do ....Walk , not necessarily run  20-30 minutes , optimally up to 2 miles a day . Work on doing this for yourself 3-5 times weekly.

This , plus other simple ,  healthier lifestyle practices can help also overweight men reduce their risk  , or even “reverse” current symptoms , according to a study done in 2005.
Since maintaining a trim waistline is a good defense for ED, as men with a 42-inch waist are 50 percent more likely to have ED than those with a 32-inch waist. Getting to a healthy weight and maintaining it is a just one good strategy for preventing and treating ED.

3. Also , Move Your Nether Regions

The phrase 'use it before you lose it' can be applied here. Pelvic exercises , more commonly known as kegel exercises, are used to promote urinary continence as well as optimum sexual health. These simple exercises help to strengthen the bulbocavernosus muscle,(try saying that 3 times quickly) which does three things: allows the penis to engorge with blood during erection, pumps during ejaculation and helps to empty the urethra after urination.In case you have never done these ,here is how you perform them:during urination you stop the flow -more than once- if you seek to strengthen this muscle more quickly.

In that same 2005 study, three months of twice-daily sets of kegel exercises combined with biofeedback lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, losing weight, and cutting back on sugar and alcohol..Don't beat yourself up if you are not able to do all of these things at once. Any reduction/healthy practices will be great!

4. Get Needled

The art of acupuncture has been used for everything from back pain, depression, and even of course , ED. In most cases acupuncture may help and is a great alternate option instead of medication in my opinion. Through this alternative , relatively painless therapy, needles are strategically and carefully placed in various parts of the body for pain relief or stress relief and is believed to promote an open flow of energy . Although there are many mixed studies for acupuncture and ED, many tend to confirm positive results. A 1999 study found acupuncture improved the quality of erection and even restored sexual activity in participants.

5. Take 'Herbal Viagra'?

Ginseng, specifically “red ginseng,” has been called “herbal Viagra” that helps puts to rest men’s bedroom woes. Red ginseng is when the root has been steamed and then dried. The ginseng root is the part of the plant that is mostly used as a natural remedy when in its supplement form.

In a 2008 review, seven studies on red ginseng and ED, ranging in dosages from 600 to 1,000 milligrams three times a day, were found to prove the effectiveness of the herb in ED treatment. There is a well written article to other natural supplements that I have personally witnessed as very effective! Of course I always recommend discussing with your doctor to be safe.

And one other that was not covered in the above linked article...

6. Drink Watermelon Juice A cold slice of watermelon can do more than just satisfy thirst and hunger during the warm summer months; it can help with bedroom satisfaction. Citrulline, the amino acid found in high concentrations of watermelon, is found to directly improve blood flow to the penis. A 2011 study revealed men who suffered from mild to moderate ED and took L-citrulline supplementation showed an improvement with their erectile function and were very satisfied. Natural watermelon juice, can also be easier on the stomach, since a side effect of taking pills like Viagra can cause nausea and diarrhea.

So there you have it gents ! You are now hopefully armed with some knowledge and tools to improve your vitality and likely more fun in your life !

Now let's get those massages scheduled!!! Lustfully , Marina
