How to Stop Erection Problems
Erection problems are extremely varied with an array of causes. Erectile dysfunction can mean anything from an inability to achieve an erection, the inability to maintain an erection long enough to perform sex, to premature ejaculation. E.D. could be the result of something emotional, psychological, or physical. It is believed however that the vast majority of cases are in fact physical in nature. Some of the causes include the use of certain drugs, alcohol, brain injuries, nerve disorders, surgery, or very possibly a lack of proper diet and exercise. To figure out how to remedy an erection problem, one first has to identify the root of the problem.
Studies show that making simple changes to ones lifestyle can remedy erectile dysfunction in more than 50 percent of cases. Lifestyle changes can include, eliminating smoking, alcohol, foods high in fat, and participating in regular moderate exercise. Simple changes such as these help to encourage the blood flow needed in order to achieve normal erectile function. In combination with male enhancement drugs or herbs, a person stands a very good chance of having a normal sex life.
One male enhancement herb that may encourage erectile function includes wild yam. The hormone DHEA, which is found in wild yam, also occurs naturally within the body. An on again off again cycle with wild yam seems to work best. Another popular male enhancement herb is saw palmetto. Saw palmetto not only helps to promote sexual health, but also promotes prostate health as well.
Erectile dysfunction may also be the result of stress, anger or a fear of intimacy. If you feel stress may be an issue, consulting a therapist and possibly seeking stress-relieving activities such as exercising or meditating may be helpful. Such activities will also increase blood flow to the penis further promoting normal erectile function. If anger is possibly the cause of erectile dysfunction, working with a therapist is definitely advised.
Repressed anger or resentment whether targeted at your partner or some other aspect of your life can be dangerous and extremely debilitating if continued to go unacknowledged. A fear of intimacy may also possibly be a cause of erectile dysfunction. A fear of intimacy can have many origins, one of which may be a feeling of inadequacy. For those who may have feelings of inadequacy due to penis size, itâ€™s important to remember that studies show women find size relatively unimportant. However, if letting go of the idea that bigger is better is difficult, penis enlargement options are available.
Penis enlargement can be achieved in many of the same ways erections can be improved. As previously mentioned, jelqing, pumps and implants are just a few ways in which one may potentially achieve a larger penis. Implants are probably the most effective penis enlargement techniques, however, they are also at this point in time not considered particularly safe. Before experimenting with male enhancement, whether to correct erectile dysfunction or to achieve a larger penis, one should thoroughly research all potential risks and side effects.
