Your High intake of Processed Fats and Refined Grains is the reason that you may suffer from Erectile dysfunction, Type 2 diabetes, Obesity and High Blood Pressure!
Your diet of grains, refined fat and high sodium processed frozen food products, fast foods and restaurant food is the reason that so many men suffer from erectile dysfunction. Most men do not have a clue as to why they are developing an erectile dysfunction problem and that they can reverse it with the proper knowledge. Eating a poor diet and getting very little exercise is greatly responsible for most bad health. Actually, lack of exercise and a poor diet is the reason for bad health among men, women and teens.
LET ME REPEAT: Your diet of processed fats and over-consumption of grains may possibly be the reason that you have developed obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and yes, your erectile dysfunction. These conditions can be reversed if you are willing to part ways with all those rich, greasy foods fried in Omega 6 fats and stop eating wheat, rice and corn products. Eating a diet of 60-80% alkaline foods would greatly DECREASE your odds of developing these diseases. Most erectile dysfunction cases are a warning sign that you have some serious cardiovascular problems. Most Erectile Dysfunction cases are related to a heart disease or pre-diabetes problem. In many cases, sexual dysfunction in men can be the first sign that they need to go see the doctor.
Our attitudes toward eating better meals and toward healthy food in general needs to change. The popular American diet of meats, fats, sugars and starches that is consumed in excess during a young male's life has a price to be paid during latter stages of his life. Erectile dysfunction is beginning to appear in men in their mid to late 20's. It is solely the results of eating a very high fat diet along with very little physical activity. The same foods that are killing us slowly are the same reason for not being able to function sexually and are a warning to you that bigger health problems are down the road.
The question posed by many men is whether or not this condition can be reversed and how do I avoid it in the first place. Even with positive evidence pointing toward reversal, many men just are not willing to make the changes necessary to live a healthy life without erectile drugs such as Viagra or Cialis. Recent research as shown that even though these problems may exist, you may be able to reverse them to the point of eliminating your dysfunction problem.
There have been quite a few studies done in the past that have found a connection between erectile dysfunction and heart disease. Research done recently and presented at the European Congress of Endocrinology shows for the first time that men with erectile dysfunction and low testosterone have a higher than normal risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. Further work from the same research group shows that obesity is also associated with an weakening of blood flow to the penis, which in turn is also associated with cardiovascular disease in men with erectile dysfunction. We need to concentrate on beating heart disease as it may be the root cause of your erection problem.
In India, an extensive study was done on older men with Type 2 diabetes. The study conducted by Alpha One Andrology Group - an association of doctors dealing in sex-related problems in men - took into account nearly 2,500 Indian men suffering from erectile dysfunction. The analysis revealed that 48 percent of men suffering from erectile dysfunction above the age of 40 are type 2 diabetic. Type 2 Diabetes and erectile dysfunction go hand in hand and the results are alarming as over 50 million Indians are type 2 diabetic, According to many doctors around the globe, India is the type 2 diabetes capital of the world.
The evidence is mounting that supports the direct connection between heart disease and erectile problems. It appears that a heart healthy diet and regular exercise can deter Heart disease or stroke. The Journal of the American College of Cardiology has published studies that confirm that erectile dysfunction can be a sure indicator of cardiovascular disease. The recent report states that Italian researchers found among 291 men with type 2 diabetes, those who also had ED had twice the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke over the next four years. At the start of the study, all of the men had had evidence of plaque buildup in their arteries , but no heart disease symptoms, such as chest pain. It seems that eating a diet of foods known to be heart healthy may be the best way to combat erectile problems. Eating a low fat vegan diet full of alkaline foods seem to be effective against developing heart disease.
There are many natural remedies for ED. These natural remedies have been around for some time and in many cases the remedy can be considered ancient. But that does not mean it is ineffective. A study conducted by the BBC with the help of Dr. Graham Jackson, consultant cardiologist at Guys and St Thomas' NHS Trust, found garlic helped correct erectile dysfunction. The study was small, involving only seven men. Each man was given four cloves of garlic per day for three months. By the end of the study, six of the seven men had seen improvement in their erections. The allicin in garlic helps increase blood flow and was attributed the success experienced by the men.
There is more evidence that eating large amounts of raw garlic can be beneficial to obtaining consistent erections. A study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) shows how the protective effect garlic has on the cardiovascular system is closely linked to how much hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is produced from garlic compounds interacting with red blood cells. H2S has the ability to relax the artery walls and reducing blood pressure. The UAB researchers found this interaction triggered red blood cells to release H2S, which then led to the relaxation of blood vessels. Fresh garlic was used at a concentration equal to eating two cloves a day. The new study is the first to show garlic-derived polysulfides in the diet boost bodily H2S production. In order to maintain an erection the arteries need to have an efficient blood flow. Erectile dysfunction indicates a hardening of the arteries, which means it could be an early biomarker of impending cardiovascular disease. This ability to relax artery walls is needed in maintaining an erection and claims are already being made that it has helped some in improving their erectile dysfunction.
This is a problem that doesn't just go away because you are taking a little blue pill! It's going to take a low glycemic, vegan diet and consistent exercise to began reversing this problem.
Eating a diet high in veggies and fruit is the start to eliminating erection problems. The start of changing your ED problem is to consume 60-80% of your diet as Alkaline foods daily. The antioxidants found in veggies and fruits help fight heart disease. Rejuvenating your cardiovascular system is important to eliminating your erectile difficulties. When plaque begins to build in your cardiovascular system, it reduces the blood flow that is needed to have a strong erection. The good fats found in raw nuts, seeds and avocados help to clean arterial plaque from your arteries as they lower LDL cholesterol levels and raise your HDL cholesterol levels. If you must eat fats then eat them from raw natural sources.
A diet high in bad fats increases the chances of you developing cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for the most cases of erectile dysfunction. Vegans have lower rates of erectile problems than people who eat meat. Avoid eating fast foods, processed foods, red meats, animal products, fattening foods and foods with high cholesterol count. Eat as many raw fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber-rich foods, 100% whole grains and low fat foods as you can incorporate into your diet daily. Reducing the amount of plaque in your blood vessels helps to get better blood flow through the body which means achieving more erectile success.
The natural way to improve your erectile dysfunction problem is to make some simple lifestyle changes. For many men, living a much healthier lifestyle has been the answer to improving the problem. Quitting smoking, exercising regularly, and reducing work stress has been all that is needed to rekindle their sex lives. For those who require more options, adopting these lifestyle changes in addition to prescription medicines can further help. Arteriosclerosis, the hardening and narrowing of the arteries, causes a reduction in blood flow throughout the body and can lead to impotence. It is associated with age and accounts for 50% to 60% of impotence in men over 60.
Cigarette smoking also has negative effects on erectile function. And chewing tobacco isn't safe either, it also may cause low sperm count. In a study of 4,763 Chinese men aged 35 to 74 years who were free of cardiovascular disease and had been sexually active within the last 6 months, the researchers found a significant link between the number of cigarettes smoked and the chances of erectile dysfunction. Tobacco use can increase erectile dysfunction. Research shows men who both smoke and drink alcohol have lower sperm counts than do men with either habit alone. Men who smoke may have sperm that are disfigured and move less quickly than those who do not smoke. Smoking can also damage DNA of your sperm.
A study published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation reveals results in improvement in blood vessel function in only 30 minutes after ingesting Green tea. Researchers assigned each person in a 14-person trial one of three beverage types: a cup of green tea, a beverage with the same amount of caffeine as green tea or hot water. Test subjects who drank Green tea experienced significantly increased blood flow after 30 minutes. Neither the caffeinated drink or the hot water produced measurable change. The increased blood flow indicates that the vessel has dilated or opened wider. This enlargement is due to the endothelial cells improving function. Endothelial cells are essential in the production of Nitric oxide. Apparantly the phytonutrients found in Green tea producing the positive effect.
Avoid Foods That Your Body Easily Converts To Sugar. These foods are wheat, rice, potatoes and High Fructose corn syrup.
Eating foods made with refined flours and sugars has created a diabetes problem that is out of control. Add on the lack of exercise and there is no question as to the problem. When we have high blood sugar (glucose) and do not use it immediately for energy, our body converts it to fat and stores it in our fat cells, usually the ones located around our stomachs. We need to either eat less refined flours and sugars OR start getting more exercise to burn off all that extra blood sugar. Eating things all day long that jack up your blood sugar levels is a sure way to being fat and diabetic. Our body doesn't function well when blood glucose levels are continuously high. Use an Alkaline food chart to help plan your meals effectively.
When you eat a diet high in refined sugars and starches, it causes great damage to the inside of your cardiovascular system. The excess sugar molecules are like shards of glass going through your arteries, cutting gashes in the walls which are then patched up with cholesterol. Soon your artery walls harden and begin to close from cholesterol blockage, putting more pressure on your heart and increasing the chance of stroke. When the artery walls begin to lose their full function, they can no longer produce the Nitric Oxide needed to maintain an erection. Nitric Oxide is made by the Endothelial cells that line the inside of the artery walls and is needed to relax the walls and allow blood to enter and inflate the penis.
IMPROVING YOUR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION WITH EXERCISE
Regular exercise can improve your health in many ways. Keeping your cardiovascular system in good shape has a direct effect on improving your erectile function and can also:
To get the most benefit, you should exercise at least 20 to 30 minutes, three times a week. Many studies suggest that four or five times a week is best. If you are a beginner, exercise for 20 minutes and build up to 30 minutes. Aerobic exercise is best for improving your cardiovascular condition and over time should have positive effects on your erectile dysfunction.
IMPROVE YOUR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION THROUGH NUTRITION AND LOTS OF GARLIC!
Several years ago, Dr. Mehmet Oz had a special on Discovery Health that told of a research study of men with ED and the effects that a high garlic diet would have on them. This was before Dr, Oz became a famous television host. There were studies that show garlic having positive effects on removing arterial plaque and Dr. Oz wanted to put it to the test. Well, his results show that eating four cloves of raw garlic a day for a couple of months may improve Erectile Dysfunction. It worked for some of the men. Further studies are needed but it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. The benefits of eating raw garlic are well documented and almost legendary. It is famous in culinary history and a staple in most early studies of medicine. Four cloves a day is tough for a lot of men but if you love garlic then I suggest you give it a try.
Supplements are intended to provide nutritional support. Try supplements that help increase your nitric oxide levels. Because a supplement or a recommended dose may not be appropriate for all persons, a physician (i.e., a licensed naturopathic physician or holistic MD or DO) should be consulted before using any product.
Supplement your High Alkaline pH foods Eating Plan:
Zinc – Helps to support cardiovascular health.
Flaxseed meal – Has high fiber content, which is great but you can use Flaxseed oil as a substitute.
Fish oil or Olive oil – Use these precious oils to improve circulation and lower cholesterol.
Vitamin C – A highly effective antioxidant.
Vitamin E – May delay or prevent cardiovascular disease by reducing LDL cholesterol.
Bioflavonoids – may be active in preserving the structures of capillaries and promote cardiovascular circulation.
Studies have always suggested that plant foods can lower cholesterol, but these foods are lower in fat and don’t contain any cholesterol at all so it has been hard to determine whether the benefits come from the plants themselves or just the fact that they are so low in fat and cholesterol-free. Researchers say a new study shows that a diet high in plant foods is superior to a conventional diet containing the same amount of fat and cholesterol. Eating plants high in chlorophyll everyday and in great abundance is a healthy way to improve your overall nutritional situation.
Eating good fats and oils such as the fat in cold water fishes, extra virgin olive oil, pecans, walnuts and pumpkin seeds help keep the blood flowing through ALL of your body parts with no problem. Eating plant foods in large quantities and consuming good fats everyday helps to clean your pipes, encourage good blood flow and strengthen your immune system. Even if you are just trying to improve your overall health, a diet high in alkaline foods will take you well on your way to being healthy and fit. Be sure to see your doctor and find out how to best combat Erectile dysfunction.
SODIUM PLAYS A ROLE TOO...
Being overweight and inactive are reasons for high blood pressure, but too much salt plays a role, too. Americans with high blood pressure are advised to eat a low-sodium diet, about 1,500 milligrams a day. Now health advocates are asking food manufacturers and restaurants to cut back because too much sodium is bad for your blood pressure -- and high blood pressure hurts your heart, brain and kidneys. It also may be THE major contributor to erectile dysfunction. You can help control blood pressure by getting exercise and preparing your meals at home with fresh ingredients. You just can't trust that the local asian take-out has cut back drastically on their use of excess sodium in their prepared meals.
For healthy folks, the government recommends no more than 2,400 mg of sodium daily, the equivalent of a heaping teaspoon of salt. But the average American eats over 4,000 mg a day: three-quarters of it from processed food and restaurant meals. Blacks and Hispanics are asked to keep their intake at 1500 mg because these ethnic groups easily develop high blood pressure. High blood pressure damages the inside of your cardiovascular system, increasing the pressure on the walls and causing damage that is AGAIN patched up with cholesterol and slowly blocks the capillaries that import the blood into the penis. This blockage keeps away the blood that is "supposed" to stiffen your penis.
