Take one hundred 40 year old men and put them all in a room together.

Then ask the guys who have no erection problems to leave the premises.

Care to guess how many red faced fellows would be left standing?

40!

Yup, that’s how common erectile dysfunction is.

We’re going to dig into the top 3 causes of this life sucking condition. Right now.

If you’re dealing with ED – read through this list to discover the root cause of your problem.

At the bottom of the article, I’ll give you a suggestion on where you can go to find help.

Let’s get started…

Number 1: Prescription Medications

My experience has proven time and again that many cases of ED are self inflicted.
(with doctor mans help).

According to AARP –  the average 50 year old male takes 4 prescription medications EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I put much of the blame on doctor man for this disaster.  But our patient needs to take some responsibility too.

The list of drugs that kill off a mans erections is more than a mile long.

As a matter of fact – it’s rare when I come across a drug that does NOT weaken a mans erections.

Here’s just a little taste for you:

-Statins

-Diuretics

-Antihistamines

-Muscle relaxants

-Antidepressants

-Anti-anxiety drugs

-Anti-inflammatory drugs

-High blood pressure medications

-Hair loss Drugs (Finasteride Propecia, Proscar, Avodart)

If you’re using one or more prescription medications – I suggest you find a doctor who treats causes. Not symptoms.

For example:

Instead of handing you a hypertension drug to bring down your high blood pressure….

He’ll have you drop a little weight.  Reduce salt intake.  Take a magnesium and potassium supplement.

Problem solved!

Now you can check one item of your list of drugs you need to take for the rest of your natural life.

This is the way you need to think from here on out. Unless you want to become a drug addicted – impotent man for the rest of your time here on earth

And make no mistake about it.  If you don’t have a plan in place – your doctor will push these drugs on you. Hard.

Your job is to find that rare medical who will not.

Your erections depend on it. So make it happen!

Number 2: Low Testosterone

Testosterone deficiency is where the erectile dysfunction nightmare begins for many men.

You see, when your testosterone drops into the danger zone – you’re much more likely to develop an unpleasant health condition.

A condition that will have a direct negative impact on your arteries. Your penis. Your erections.

For example – low testosterone dramatically increases your risk of developing:

-Obesity

-Diabetes

-Metabolic Syndrome

-High Blood Pressure

-Abnormal Lipid Levels

-Coronary Heart Disease

Every single condition listed above causes damage to those tiny arteries that feed blood into your penis.

Combine this with the fact that low testosterone decreases sexual desire. Takes your focus away from your penis. From women. From sex…

And moves your focus towards things like the television. The couch. The refrigerator.

Many men pick up the phone at this low point and call the doctor for help.

And sure, he’ll come running to the rescue – prescription pad in hand.

But we’ve already discussed where that will get you.

A better plan would be to boost that testosterone naturally…

Get those hormones back up – without all the negatives that drugs and artificial hormone therapy bring on.

Make it happen. Your erections depend on it.

Number 3: Atherosclerosis – AKA Hardening of the Arteries

The blood used to fill up an erect penis comes from the arteries around your stomach.

Smaller arteries branch off these larger ones and head straight for your penis during arousal.

In a perfect world – these small arteries dilate quickly as arousal builds. This leads to a rush of blood into your package.

This sudden rush creates back pressure – which prevents the blood from flowing back out of the penis while the erection is sustained.

This is the process that takes place every time you achieve an erection.

As you can see – this process is very much artery driven.

Your arteries need to dilate – and move blood effectively for a quality erection to be achieved.

Atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries breaks this process down. Stops that blood flow. Prevents those impressive erections from ever arriving.

Your job is to ensure that your arteries remain healthy – clear – flexible.

Your erections depend on it.  So make it happen.

If you need help with this – You’ll find it Right Here
