Natural Awakenings Charlotte

Charlotte Area MD on Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Breakthrough

Jul 30, 2021 12:00PM ● By Cammy Benton

Sexual health is important but can often be embarrassing to bring up with your doctor. There are many causes of ED, and that is worth exploring to get the best treatment possible. One of the first things to do is get your testosterone levels checked. If the levels are under 400, it may be worth finding ways to maximize testosterone, even though it isn’t considered low until under about 250. Also check family history for vascular problems such as heart disease, strokes and hardening of the arteries. This could be a reason for ED and needs to be evaluated.

Performance anxiety is a common cause of ED because once some men are unable to perform in the bedroom, anxiety can ruin the moment. Occasionally, sex therapy is warranted. Sensate focus or tantric yoga as a couple is also recommended to help turn the issue into fun with less pressure.

There are meds for erectile dysfunction like Viagra and Cialis, but some men will experience headaches. Gainswave is a great option for natural treatments for ED without pharmaceuticals.

Gainswave is a painless, regenerative treatment for men and is also starting to be used in women. It helps to create new collateral blood flow, and has the extra benefit of helping enlarged prostates and urinary flow. It comes in groups of six 20-minute sessions versus 12, depending on the severity of erectile dysfunction. P-shots, plus or minus additional exosomes from amniotic fluid (not from aborted fetuses), are a new trending treatment. The subject’s own platelet-rich plasma is used to inject growth factors and make the Gainswave even more effective.
