Erectile Dysfunction Finding the Right Solution
There are many men who suffer from erectile dysfunction. Over time it can get progressively worse if solutions are effective. In fact, research shows that about 60% of prescribed erectile dysfunction medication is ineffective. Why? We are here to help you understand why.
Common medications for erectile dysfunction are Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. Each of these three medications have similar goals. Their purpose is to increase blood flow to the penis. This means, in order for this “magic” pill to work, your body must be in a state of sexual stimulation since arousal triggers the brain to increase the heart rate which increased blood flow throughout the body. If the brain does not receive the “signal”, the “magic” pill will not work.
So what if the “magic” pill does not work? What’s the next possible solution?
Believe it or not, low testosterone is also very common in men, especially as they age. Hormone imbalances in the body come with a list of other conditions associated with it such as fatigue, low muscle mass, and depression, but one of the most noticeable side effects of low testosterone is erectile dysfunction.
How do you know if testosterone levels are low?
The best course of action is to consult with a physician about completing blood work to analyze hormone levels. If imbalances are identified, there is a treatment option to increase testosterone levels; Hormone Replacement Therapy.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Replacement therapy is a FDA approved and safe treatment option which replenishes diminished testosterone levels. It’s a healthier option in comparison to pills as they do not counteract with other medications suited for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and the body’s natural ability to maintain a natural erection. From the comfort of home, hormones can be replenished in the body.
