Erectile Dysfunction – A Growing Problem Among Men
Aug 10, 2016 - 4:02:22 PM
The medical dictionaries will define ED, or erectile dysfunction, as "the persistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is satisfactory for sexual intercourse..."
Technically speaking, the condition needs to be "persistent" or chronic to be officially diagnosed as ED. But, from a practical standpoint, the definition is not so simple.
Male sexual wellness is more a matter of degrees, ranging from occasional difficulty in obtaining an erection to complete inability for the penis to become erect. Some men can live just fine with an occasional performance issue. For others, even one bout of ED can be emotionally devastating, wrecking their self-confidence.
How Common is Erectile Dysfunction?
Statically speaking, 50% of all men, have experienced erectile dysfunction at some time or another. After age 40, nearly 40% have to deal with the condition, and by 65, about 70% of men experience some form of ED, usually accompanied by a loss of libido or sex drive.
In the last few decades the numbers of men suffering with ED have been increasing.
Statistics aside, the truth is, every man probably has had trouble achieving an erection at one time or another. Many common everyday issues, from stress and anxiety to alcohol consumption, could contribute to your ability to achieve or maintain an erection.
While these occasional problems with sexual performance may not fit the "official" medical dictionary definition of ED, they can still can have a profound effect on your sex life and overall happiness.
How Do You Get an Erection in the First Place?
Obviously, you and your partner know what an erection looks and feels like. But do you know the processes that occur within your body to achieve "lift off?" It's a bit more complicated than you might think. To really understand ED, it is useful to understand how "normal" erectile function works.
Good blood flow through the arteries and veins of the penis are essential to achieving and maintaining an erection. The chambers inside of your penis are made up of "spongy tissue," which is really smooth muscle tissue. Like any sponge the tissue is filled with little holes. When the penis is in a flaccid state, the blood vessels that flow through this spongy tissue are small, and the "spaces" are tight and collapsed.
That all changes upon stimulation. As you are being visually, physically and/or emotional aroused, the process of erection begins. Your brain stimulates the nerve endings in the penis to release nitric oxide. The release of nitric oxide causes the smooth muscles in the chambers to relax, which loosens up the sponge like spaces, making them larger and more open. As these spaces expand, blood flows into them, the increased blood flow creates pressure, which in turn causes the erectile tissue of the penis to expand.
Once the spongy tissue is filled with blood, a full erection is the result.
Since good blood flow into these tissues is essential to get and maintain an erection, it stands to reason then, that any disease or disorder that impairs blood flow, can influence ED.
Now that you have learned that good blood flow is essential for normal erectile functioning, you can understand why sexual performance issues develop as you age.
As you get older, the blood vessels that supply blood to your penis begin to collapse or break down. We have recently introduced a remarkable new ED treatment called the GAINSWaveTM. The GAINSWave is a very new procedure. In fact, we are the only ones in your area currently offering this medical male enhancement treatment.
Basically, the pulsating waves of the GAINSWave improve blood flow to the penis by opening existing blood vessels and stimulating the growth of new blood vessels. Increased blood flow results in stronger, harder, and more sustainable erections.
The pulsating waves trigger a healing response that "wakes-up" dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis. Along with repairing age-worn blood vessels, these growth factors stimulate the creation of new blood vessels and the rejuvenation of erectile tissue.
80% of men with ED receiving the GAINSWave saw a reversal of their condition, and 86% of all men receiving the treatment report positive results and improved sexual performance!
As compared to other male enhancement treatments, pulsed-wave therapy for ED is drug-free, surgery-free, and has little or no known side-effects.
