There are many conditions that cause erectile dysfunction. Kidney disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, a pelvic injury or surgery, a hormonal imbalance, and more. In a minority of cases, a psychological issue such as depression, anxiety, or chronic stress may be causing it. Obesity could also be at fault for trapping in too much testosterone. Then there is smoking, drinking, and illegal drug use which can sap your capability. But most of the time, it is the onset of heart disease which causes ED. At its essence, three biological functions have to be working correctly for an erection to take place.
Testosterone must be flowing throughout the bloodstream at a normal level. Nerve signaling has to work in order to tell the penis to become erect. And blood flow has to be there to engorge the penis and cause an erection. The majority of the time, it is the prevalence of heart disease that causes ED. In that, a poor diet clogging the arteries, particularly those leading to the penis, is at fault.
Many cardiologists call ED the “canary in the coal mine.” This means that if something doesn’t change, a man with ED may be gearing up for a heart attack or stroke. For those who want to avoid sexual dysfunction, the best way to do so is to eat a healthy diet. That means seriously cutting out sugar, salt, and especially fat and cholesterol, and increasing the intake of all manner of fruits and vegetables. The body needs lots of nutrients to keep the blood vessels free and clear of obstruction. If the cardiovascular system is affected, so is the penis. They are intricately linked.
The right diet can help reverse small problems in the blood vessels, according to Steven Lamm, M.D. He is a clinical assistant professor at New York University School of Medicine. Dr. Lamm is also the author of the book The Hardness Factor. A healthy diet along with lower body cardio can, in mild cases, can help you overcome ED. But you will still want to get checked out to see what is causing it, how advanced the underlying condition is, and what needs to be done to treat it. You will also want to know if you need medical intervention to get your sex life back on track. For those experiencing ED, make an appointment with a doctor or urologist and get on top of it right away. (http://www.gq.com/story/food-drink-to-eat-manhood-virility).
