Among those over 25, one in three men experience sexual breakdowns more or less frequently. If many drugs and other “miracle cures” against impotence have appeared, it is not towards them that you should look first. The causes of male impotence are multiple and can most often be prevented or treated in a natural, healthy and free way. Here are the top tips for avoiding sexual breakdowns.
Opt for a healthy lifestyle
It starts with good nutrition. Certain foods should be avoided as much as possible, in particular refined cereals, refined sugars and saturated fats. The consumption of sweets, pastries, cold meats and other fried foods must therefore be closely monitored. If these foods already have a detrimental effect in the short term on the quality of erection, it is even worse in the long term: the development of lasting abdominal fat ( belly syndrome ) would be directly correlated to erectile dysfunction. In 2006, a study showed that three quarters of individuals with an imposing belly suffered from impotence!
Alcohol is also in question: if it is often said that a glass can facilitate the spontaneous sexual act, ingesting too much alcohol will very often cause disappointment once in bed. Alcoholism is a proven factor of chronic impotence.
Conversely, certain categories of food are recommended and would facilitate erection and its quality. On the one hand, foods that increase testosterone, an essential factor for your virility and your libido. We note in particular broccoli, watermelon, avocado and oily fish (mackerel, herring, sardines). On the other hand, foods that boost the level of nitric oxide also have a positive effect on impotence problems since they allow muscles to relax and dilate vessels. In pole position, we find beets, followed by oatmeal, dried fruits (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts) and dairy products. But impotence is not only in the body, it is also in the head…
Adopt a new relationship to sexuality
First, consider your porn consumption. If it's high, that's probably the cause of all your worries. Pornography shows you scenes out of step with reality: exacerbated brutality, improbable practices, satisfaction of all fantasies, women with plasticized bodies, etc… This false vision of sex will often lead you, at the time of the act, to lose your excitement, a bit like a child opening a gift that isn't what he expected.
On the other hand, relax, a breakdown can happen to anyone. Feeling guilty about your partner or stressing about your performance will not help the situation, quite the contrary. Release the pressure, stop asking yourself questions and focus on enjoying the moment. Finally, do not rush headlong into the sexual act in the proper sense. A woman's body isn't the only one that needs to warm up — foreplay is good for you, too. Make it clear to your partner that you are in a playful mood, that you want to increase the excitement little by little to get the most out of it.
In conclusion, by concrete changes in your daily lifestyle and by personal mental work you will get out of the impasse. However, each man has his own constitution and will react differently to the techniques mentioned above. If after three months no visible effect is observed, it will therefore be wise to consult to obtain a personalized expert opinion.
