There have been more senior men and women who are participating in lovemaking and are rekindling the excitement that once in another age would have passed them by. The issue of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) has not only affected the senior population , but men who are fraught with diabetes, vascular insuffiency, mental blocks, pscyhological-emotional problems, lack of testorenone, alcohol and drug related problems causing ED. The resurgence in the interest of ED was noted when Senator Bob Dole participated in a television commercial for a prominent drug company. This sent millions of men to their doctors in a hurry and a slew of prescription drugs for this problem began. No sooner had the pharmaceutical interest in conquering this problem did a side effect involving blood pressure and prolonged painful erections began.
The question still remains does "one size fit all?" That is if there are various causes for ED does this mean that only one method(drug, surgery) can solve all these various causes for the same problem?
Men have had to resort to torturous injections and cumbersome implants to combat these problems especially when vascular and neurological issues were the cause. Why would a man with a emotional-psychological cause have surgery? Why would someone with Leiriche Syndrome with plaques obstructing the vessels to the anatomy take an anti-depressant for that.
In the case for women, menopause raises its "ugly" head too often for interfering in the regular sex lives of women in the peak of their lives. The Oprah Winfrey Show garnered much attention when she discussed openly about the problem of vaginal dryness, vaginal dysfunctions, dyspareunia( painful intercouse), or the case of women unable to obtain orgasm at all. Her show focused mostly again at pharmaceutical approaches to this problem with testosterone creams and ointments as well as prescription estrogen for many of these ailments. However, longterm uses of both of these can cause cancers as a side effect. Again numerous women have resorted to surgery to repair their anatomy including clitoro-plasties and pelvic surgeries to help prolapsing or falling uterus.
Again are drugs and cutting the only way to recapture the last remaining essence of pleasure in the "climax" of your peak years?
Thermogenix(http://www.tgx360.com/) has explored alternative healthy natural ways that are organic in nature that can address several issues we encounter with this problem. Again , the question remains, do all "Nano-nutritional" agents work the same or are they meant to be taken for everyone for different underlying problems. So explore the literature and experts more about them here.
HELP IS ON THE WAY
For hundreds of years indigenous and native populations have known the secrets to nature and how to sustain potency in their private lives. Herbals have always been an essential component of the "cycle of life" when it came to sexuality.
In South America, particularly Brazil -Amazonian populations have utilized various agents and Brazilian academics have taken note to this large anecdotal and historical use and resorted to their own contemporary studies that are well documented on how efficient they work.
Power and sustaining one's potency to "last" has been noted with the herb Guarana. It is a thermogenic agent that gives a boost of energy and has been reported to reduce the stickiness of platelets . This vascular effect might be enough to keep the circulation unimpeded for sinuses to swell and give that "bigger" quality.
Catuaba is another herbal that is used for its aphrodisiac power from Brazil as well. It works by enhancing libido. Another Brazilian aphrodisiac , Muira Puama, helps especially for those who can not tolerate Yohimbime or Yohimbe which are derivatives of a specific tree bark from Africa.
The South American herb Blue Passion( Passiflora Caerulea) also enahances libido by reducing the breadown of testosterone. Iporur is very well utilized particularly by women in the Amazon and is claimed to assist even in infertility as well.
In Asia natural aphrodisiacs have been known also for centuries . Those that have gained wide noteriety include Ginseng( Korean Ginseng) and Epidmedium, known infamously as the "horny goat weed".
As mentioned earlier, Africa has been a cornucopia of wealth when it comes to natural aphrodisiacs. Yohimbine and Yohimbe are derviatives that enhance libido for both men and women. women have been noted to have success with using other herbals to awaken their "inner senses" to greater climaxes. These include Pine Pollen, Anise, and Damiana.
A chemical used as a "vaso-dilator" for increasing blood flow in penile sinuses is nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide can be obtained in supplement form and acquires very good results that are lasting. It helps deliver more oxygen to the vessels and muscles to give men greater cardio-vascular power as well to improve performance in various activity.
DHEA is usually mentioned for body builders and weight lifters , but it contains aphrodisiac powers too.Other sensual activity is enhanced by it as well. So , you get a kind of two in one.
Numerous supplements taken individually or mixed in a variety of ways have helped men with ED such as L-arginine, 5-HTP, vitamin B-6, and Choline. these formulas are to be seen on a case-by-case level , however, have been noted to be extremely effective anecdotally!
Prostatitis , BPH( prostate enlargement ) and prostate cancer are rising because of our longevity , as we are still looking for cures, perhaps the best way is to prevent prostate problems from happening at all. Besides getting a prostate check annually ; adult men can do something else. They can take advantage of "Nano-Nutrition" to reduce the chances with Lycopene from tomatoes whcih as antioxidant power and the nutrient Saw Palmetto. Saw Palmetto can inhibit the dangerous conversion of testosterone into DHT , the form that is related to cancer. Soy has also been implicated as a healthier food choice in the prevention of prostate problems as well. Further studies are looking at this more clinically while nutritional reviews apparently have given the green flag on these possiblities already.
GYNEX FORMULA FOR WOMEN ESPECIALLY
Scientist are looking at better solutions for women with menopausal symptoms. As recent studies are indicating the cardio-vascular risk of taking long term estrogens( heart attack , strokes and cancer), newer and more "green" forms of addressing this are now available. Phyto -estrogens from soy sources are one of the best alternatives now that can help. Doctors are prescribing natural progesterones and phyto-estrogens in different forms. Prometirum is another alternative for these symptoms as well.
Black Cohosh seems to regulate many mood swings associated with PMS.Evening Primrose seems to help through an essential fatty acid , GLA. It helps regulate estrogen and vaginal dryness .Aloe gel may help relieve vaginal dryness while Calendula may help with vaginal itching. Ginseng along with vitamin E may help reduce hot flashes and can be taken with Vitex.Fluid retention can be reduced with Dong Quai and Peony Powder . There are may other herbals I discuss that help menstrual and menopausal symptoms for women in my book "Thermogenix" ( http://www.tgx360.com/ ).
Couples need to communicate more and workout together more often. Plan to do this as regularly as possible. Having your own time to workout helps you "work out" situations. This type of forum helps de-escalate matters before they blow. Stretching together , then massaging each other enhances ones sensuality in a relationship. Be creative with it. Put rose petals in the bath, wine & dine at home to relaxing romantic music. Change roles sometimes . Guys you cook and "ladies" you initiate love maneuvers more often . Yes, this is one time you can "be easy" in more ways than one.
THE EXERCISE THEY DON'T DARE TEACH IN P.E. CLASS
There is an exercise that both men and women need to know to enhance their sensuality and sexuality as far as improving their performance with one another. It is called the Kegel. There are muscles that keep the vagina taunt . These muscles can be felt when one squeezes one's own gluteus (buttock muscles) tightly such as when voiding and then stopping immediately. This can be done for 5 to 10 seconds and released. This exercise has been known to give women greater orgasmic experiences as well as help vaginal wall weakness.
The stop and(start) void method or Kegel is good for men too because it helps control premature ejaculation, incontinence and allows for greater control of gaining sexual climax. Your parnter will appreciate you a whole lot more if you practice that one!
