If you or a loved one struggles with soft erections, also known as erectile dysfunction, this article covers a lot of knowledge on this sensitive topic. The best approach to human health is treating it from the inside out, changing static patterns that contribute to poor health, and removing obstacles to promote health and wellness.
Soft Erections Master Tip!
You may recall back in 1998, the makers of Viagra hired a famous politician, Bob Dole, to raise awareness of this extremely common problem for men. Most men were not comfortable talking about erectile dysfunction with their partners or physicians, and so step one was raising the awareness of how common the problem is.
The next step is coming up with solutions, which means researching and understanding the contributing factors to erectile dysfunction. Years ago, a large compounding pharmacy based out of San Diego, California, formulated and manufactured several medications to help the issue. Most phosphodiesterase inhibitors, such as Sildenafil, Tadalafil, Vardenafil, have now become generic. Becoming generic has dramatically dropped the price of these drugs and made them more accessible.
If a man struggles with soft erections because of low testosterone, the solution may be as simple as applying a topical cream as a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. However, there are often other contributing factors such as stress, high blood sugar, or cardiovascular disease.
Pharmacies manufactured many of tablets, called sublinguals, to combat these factors but sometimes even that wasn’t enough. Next came intracavernosal injections, which came in small doses of medicated injections directly into the penis. They’re known as Bimix, Trimix and Quadmix, and are quite effective.
However, simple lifestyle changes can make a difference in erectile dysfunction, or at least help medications work more effectively. Making the right changes may allow you to reduce the dose of your medication or eliminate the need for medication altogether!
The first two changes that will make a difference in erectile dysfunction are quitting smoking and limiting your alcohol intake. Sure, alcohol can lower inhibitions and make you feel like a superhero but excess alcohol intake can contribute to erectile dysfunction and make medication less effective.
Lowering your stress can reduce cortisol levels and can boost testosterone levels. Simple deep breathing exercises for 10-15 minutes every day can improve the neurological function of your vagus nerve, which controls basically everything from the neck down – including the penis.
Of course, a healthy diet is always recommended. Aim for a diet rich in antioxidants, which means nine servings of five colors each and every day.
Vasodilators, a medication to open your blood vessels, can be effective for solving erectile dysfunction but it’s certainly not a cure. A few interesting studies based on imaging of penile blood flow have shown that any reduced blood flow is an independent risk factor. Reduced blood flow can be an indicator of diabetes and the development of cardiovascular disease, so it’s not just a problem of the penis. It’s an early indicator that the rest of your body is going to suffer.
If you have low testosterone levels, discovering why is important. Perhaps you’re stressed and have high cortisol levels, or perhaps you’re overweight and have high estrogen levels. Plastics, like phthalates and BPA, and sleep deprivation can decrease testosterone levels by 10 to 20%.
If you want to reverse the effects of erectile dysfunction, then quit smoking, limit alcohol intake, get stress under control, eat a diet high in antioxidants, take a vasodilator, and get your testosterone levels within normal limits.
At Zenith Labs, we’ve created a herbal supplement called Barbarian XL which boosts testosterone levels and improves erectile dysfunction. It’s well-researched and contains a trademarked ingredient specifically for improving testosterone levels.
