5 Lifestyle Tips That Can Improve ED and Circulation

We know that for many men the path to treating and overcoming erectile dysfunction (ED) is a long and complicated road. Amidst uncertain treatment plans and a wide variety of information, we want to outline some key steps to manage ED.


Along with a variety of other health benefits, walking for 30 minutes a day can reduce the risk of ED by more than 40%. Also, moderate exercise is especially important for increasing the sexual performance of middle-aged men who are also overweight. 


Smart Food Choices

Just like walking, a diet of natural foods like whole grains, fish, vegetables, and fruits (and avoiding processed meats and refined grains!) can have a huge impact on overall health. However, a healthy diet is also a key component of decreasing the likelihood of ED.

Weight Management

A big part of avoiding or combating ED is making sure to maintain a healthy weight. A man with a 42-inch waistline is 50% more likely to have ED than a man with a 32-inch waist. This makes sense, as increased weight and obesity increase the chances of heart disease and diabetes — which are two major factors that contribute to ED. 


Heart Health

It is well known that having a healthy heart is important for quality of life as it reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke. Not as widely discussed is the importance of vascular health in regards to ED. High blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar can lead to poor function of the body’s arteries which can then lead to decreased blood flow — a major cause of ED. 

Work Out!

A British trial demonstrated that twice daily Kegel exercises for a period of three months resulted in a significant reduction of ED symptoms. A strong pelvic floor is an essential tool in fighting to eliminate ED and has been proven to be highly effective, especially when combined with other lifestyle changes. 

Don’t let erectile dysfunction cause frustration and hopelessness. ED meds like Sildenafil can be combined with lifestyle modifications to improve sexual function. Ask your favorite Thomas Seashore pharmacist for guidance.

The Importance of Tdap Vaccine: Keeping You and Your Family Safe

Getting the Tdap vaccine is important because it provides protection against three serious diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (also known as whooping cough). Tetanus can cause muscle stiffness and spasms, while diphtheria can lead to heart and nerve damage. Pertussis is a highly contagious respiratory infection that can be especially dangerous for infants and young children. By getting vaccinated, you not only protect yourself, but also your loved ones and community from these potentially life-threatening illnesses.
