Speak Up - For Better Sexual Health

Why are men so difficult when they have to confront their sexual health? Men do not hesitate to take charge of established businesses and start up new ones or help our children and neighbors cope with their own crises, but when men have a sexual problem, they suddenly feel all alone and adrift without any sense of where to turn. But sexual problems have always been somehow different, not something easy to talk about because they are frankly too personal or private. If you have a sexual health problem, you should know that you are not alone.

When a man's problem is not related to the role of his penis as a passageway for urinating, but as a sexual instrument, his thinking and actions change dramatically. If his penis does not stand erect when he attempts to have sex, he does not, as a rule, automatically call his doctor for advice. This is not surprising, because men have been led that male sexual problems were not likely to be caused by real physical problems but rather were the consequence of mental factors or worse were yet an indication of his individual weakness as a male, a misguided perception that persists even today.

Scientist have since cast aside their own prejudices and defined the components of normal male sexuality to establish the template for sexual competence. Now, when a man's sexual function falters, doctors can look for weak links in the system. You would think that doctors, of all people, would learn this in medical school, but in reality, talk about sex has for the most part been ignored in most medical schools until quite recently. Within the past two decades, new developments have provided doctors with refreshing new insights about the causes of, and treatments for, a range of male sexual problems including impotence also defined as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and erection problems. Doctors now have a better understanding of the details of a man's sexual desires and his ability to participate in his natural sexuality. Until doctors understood the details of a man's sexual chemistry, they could offer only limited treatment.

Nutritional measures, exercise, plant-based herbal medicines are often used in the natural treatment of male sexual health issues. Improving sexual desire and function is possible using herbal medicines because they could improve the activity of the male glandular system, improve the blood supply to erectile tissue, and enhance transmission or stimulation of the nerve signal. Herbal medicines have been used for centuries to treat ailments before medicine even existed. Just a few examples of plant-based herbal remedies are listed below.

Panax Ginseng-is the most widely used and most extensively studied ginseng. It is generally regarded as the best ginseng in that it has the most potent effect. Detailed scientific investigations support the use of ginseng as a tonic for men and in conditions involving male reproductive system. In addition, ginseng can be used whenever fatigue or lack of energy is apparent and to increase mental and physical performance.

Muira Puama-One of the best plants used for erectile dysfunction or lack of libido, which is also known as potency wood. This shrub is native to Brazil and has long been used as a powerful aphrodisiac and nerve stimulant. A recent clinical study has validated that muira puama meets safety and effectiveness in improving libido and sexual function. Yohimbe- A tree that grows throughout the African nations of Cameroon, Gabon and Zaire, is the only herb listed in the Physician's Desk Reference as supporting sexual function. Yohimbe's energizing effects stem from its ability to increase blood flow to the genitals therefore it is helpful for men with erection problems. Effects can include increased libido, increased sensation and increased stamina.

If you wish tn try the herbal remedies, discuss it with your physician. Since he or she is most likely unaware of the herbal medicines available, you may need to do some educating. Remember, although many herbal medicines are effective on their own, they work even better if they are part of a natural treatment plan that focuses on diet and lifestyle for a better sexual health.

How Exercise Can Help You Increase Your Sexual Health And Save Your Marriage

If you want to know what sexual health means and how it could cause problems in your marriage, then you should continue to read the article. Also, if you have sexual health problem and you want a way out of it, you need to read on too. The article will look at the meaning of sexual health, the problem it could cause in a marriage, what type of exercise, and how such an exercise could help to improve your sexual health. After reading this article, you will be able to know whether you are sexually fit for some rounds of sex with your wife/spouse.

Women know and understand all too well how their sense of physical well-being influences their level of sexual desire. For this reason, if you ask a woman if she is fit for sex, she will tell you straight away. For men, however, much of this is unknown to them; it is a virgin territory. Today, men worry about their weight and fitness. If you relate this to sexual activities, then, their focus on weight and body fitness could be said to be superficial. Men's understanding of sexual health is how well they can get it up (or how fast), keep it up, and get it off, even if it requires a little porn or a pill to make all these happen. Yes, we have sex with our Penises. Sexual health is being more attuned to ones entire body, head to head and nape to toe i.e., having sex with our whole bodies and minds. It is to have truly embodied and ultimately out-of-body sex.

Sex is the second causes of problems in the home and divorces (comes after financial problem). A husband that is unfit for sex or sexual activities is no good to his wife. Such a man cannot give his wife genuine orgasm. What we have most times are wives faking orgasms to make their husband have a feeling that they have performed very well in bed. This would eventually lead to a situation where the wife just lies down for her to get it in and out of her in the shortest time. The husband enjoys it and the wife, doesn't get any amusement and joy from sex with her husband. The two are just not connected in body. Soon, the non-connectivity will spread to other aspects of their home with the consequence being loneliness and eventually divorce. In reality, our sex lives are anything but easy; they're rife with subtext, miscommunication, and ambiguity, as well as unspoken wants and guilty desires.

Exercise can be used to improve sexual health. Some types of exercises have found to improve blood inflow into the arteries which is essential in sexual arousal. Regular aerobic workout keep the blood flowing and the arteries producing nitric oxide. Now, nitric oxide, this substance is the life blood (literally speaking) of the male erection and is essential to sexual arousal. If you have not notice, you sometimes feel horniest post-exercise. Also, feel-good endorphins that contribute to sexual arousal are released. Exercise also plays a major role in generating positive self-esteem, perhaps the most powerful sexual enhancer. You wouldn't believe how many men suffer from poor body image. And as women know all too well, low self-esteem dampens sexual desire.

On a personal note, I was way over my ideal weight about three years ago, and I was basically stuck in a low-level sex rut. I rarely exercised. Not only did I not have the energy for sex, but also I just felt unattractive. The complaints started from my wife, then my friends and my relatives. It affected my marriage, my wife felt disgusted at my appearance and loss of self-esteem. I made a decision to get into better shape, so I went on an exercise and fitness program. Not only did I lose the weight fairly quickly, but also the smallest improvement along the way boosted my self-esteem and libido tenfold. I feel at my most alive when I'm pushing myself physically during a workout, and, consequently, I feel at my most alive sexually when I make love right after a workout. If you are low on sexual health, you need a whole lot of exercises.

Sex is the second in the causes of divorce/marriage failure (comes after finance). Most men cannot satisfy their wife because they are not sexually fit. Knowing the importance of sex in marriage, men must learn to improve their sexual health fitness for the happiness of their wife and success of their marriage.
