Sexual Dysfunction Not Limited to U.S.

The more different we think we are--meaning us Americans--than others, the more we are alike. That's what I thought when I read this survey about the dillemma more than half of Chinese men over 40 face when they deal with sexual dysfunction. Most delay treatment out of embarassment.

Patients on a national average only saw a doctor 22 months after the first symptoms occurred, compared to the average six months in the West, the report said. Those in big cities delay treatment even longer. Beijing men wait 34.3 months while Shanghai men wait 30.4 months before seeking professional help.

According to the report, another barrier to treatment was expensive drugs like Viagra, that costs nearly $12 per tablet.

The same day I reviewed another Asian study that warned workers who spend all day sitting down are less likely to do well "on the job after hours." However that same study also found accountants and bankers are the first to seek medical help for impotency problems.

What natural tools do you have at your disposal to solve this problem? There are several inexpensive, safe and healthy alternatives, none of which include taking a drug like Viagra, Levitra or Enzyte.

  • The neurotransmitter that sends the sexual message for mean and women is acetlycholine (ACH). ACH also seems to control sexual behavior through its activity in the brain. With too little ACH, sexual activity goes down. One way to safely and effectively enhance ACH levels in the body is to take supplements of choline (1,000 to 3,000 mg) and vitamin B5 (500 to 1,500 mg).
  • Start exercising! Studies have proven that active men who engage in regular physical activity lowered their risk of experiencing impotence.
  • Using a natural stress reliever like EFT.
