Erectile dysfunction (ED) is an issue that affects many men, regardless of their age. While it is not life-threatening, it can be a symptom of a more serious health condition. Fortunately, in many cases, ED can be reversed with the right treatment or lifestyle changes. A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that after five years, 29 percent of men with ED had achieved remission.
Secondary ED is often temporary and can be reversed with the right medical treatments. Primary ED, however, will require more intense medical treatments. Non-invasive remedies for ED can also help. Mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship problems can cause ED.
Eating a diet rich in natural foods such as fruits, vegetables and fish can reduce the risk of ED. Men with chronic kidney disease who receive dialysis have a higher rate of ED than usual. Medications taken to treat health problems can also cause ED, as can alcohol and smoking. Cell regeneration therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that safely and effectively treats ED. Even if ED cannot be completely cured, an appropriate treatment plan can reduce or eliminate symptoms, leading to a pleasurable sexual relationship. Australian researchers have also demonstrated that medications for ED are likely to be more effective if healthy lifestyle changes are implemented.
For many men, stopping smoking is a remedy for ED, especially when it is the result of vascular disease. Exercises to strengthen the muscles in the area can also help reverse ED. The survey says that more than 50 percent of people with ED problems during sexual intercourse as a couple have no problem viewing pornography.
