How to maintain men's health: do not abuse steam rooms and loads
Men claim that the loss of an erection is like death. After all, if the heart does not work, then there is no person. And the primary sexual characteristic, according to their unanimous assurances, is their second heart. We figured out how to keep this heart strong and healthy. This was helped by an expert-Denis Panfilov, urologist, andrologist of the medical network "Harmony of Health".
Avoid tooth decay and tonsillitis
Chronic inflammatory process, which leads to any infectious diseases, worsens the blood supply to the pelvic organs. Because the endothelium — the inner layer of blood vessels-is affected, and they are already much worse at transporting blood, and with it-nutrients and oxygen. This worsens the condition of the tissues even more, since in conditions of hypoxia, the reproduction of pathogenic agents increases. But the mechanism of erection is primarily an increase in the filling of the vessels of the genitals with a certain amount of blood.
Therefore, you should carefully choose your partners for sex, and if they are fickle, or if you are not sure about their state of health and passing timely examinations — you should definitely use a condom.
In no case should you allow the development of chronic tonsillitis, caries and other foci of bacterial reproduction. After all, they can move with the blood flow to the genitals, and create chronic inflammation in them.
Flu and other viral infections can also cause inflammation, weakening the immune system and giving the green light to pathogenic microorganisms. After all, they live in each of us, only their growth is restrained by the immune system, and in case of illness (any), it may not cope with all the tasks at once.
There should be no overload
You should not chronically fall off your feet. An erection is an energy-consuming process: a man loses as much energy during sexual intercourse as if he had unloaded a ton of sand. Therefore, regular mega-fatigue can also disrupt potency.
Do not allow not only physical overload, but also mental. Of course, the risk group is primarily men who have various types of neurological diseases (now or in the past: for example, you have experienced a spinal injury or stroke), but you can lose potency even with chronic stress and lack of sleep. After all, in this case, the transmission of nerve impulses from the subcortex of the brain (the organ that issues commands to other parts of the body) to the cavernous bodies — the structural unit of erectile tissue-will be disrupted. And lack of sleep is, perhaps, the leading mechanism of disruption of the central nervous system. After all, the brain is able to eliminate the consequences of any experiences (at least partially) if it has enough rest at night: only during sleep does it fully "reformat", when it self-repairs and "grinds" information.
Make friends with sports
At least run for 40 minutes in the morning and evening. Cardio loads will also improve the tone of blood vessels (and then they will be able to react less catastrophically to negative factors, in particular-they are squeezed for several hours every day when sitting in the office), and will saturate the pelvic organs with oxygen-an antioxidant that preempts inflammatory processes in the tissues of the human body.
Therefore, ideally, add classes in the gym to your daily runs — 2-3 times a week for 1.5 hours.
Avoid bread, alcohol, and cigarettes
Unhealthy diets, particularly baked goods, are also to blame for the loss of potency. If sausages, semi-finished products, fast food, bakery and confectionery products are the basis of your diet, in which you also generously add industrially made sauces and salads with mayonnaise, then you risk becoming overweight and getting type 2 diabetes.
In the first case, this will lead to an increase in the level of female hormones in your body (and a decrease in testosterone, as a result, since fat metabolism will be disrupted). In the second case, due to disorders in the pancreas, the vascular system will suffer. She will suffer even before the development of diabetes (which is incurable to the end) - improper nutrition causes spikes in blood sugar, which is a mockery of the vascular system.
Food saturated with bad fats (and they are in all of the above products) also provokes the appearance of atherosclerotic plaques: their presence in the vessels worsens blood circulation and blood supply to the genitals, including.
Alcohol (and especially its abuse) worsens both the general immunity of the body and the local one - in the genitals, which leads to an exacerbation of chronic diseases (in any organs) and an increase in the level of bacteria in the pelvic organs. In addition, the consumption of large doses of alcohol increases the amount of toxins in the blood, which leads to inflammation in the walls of blood vessels. The same toxic effect occurs when smoking cigarettes.
No sauna and hot baths
According to the laws of nature, the scrotum should be in an environment with a temperature not even of the body, but 1-2 °C less. Therefore, regular exposure to "heat" will disrupt its functions and, as a result — the hormonal background, which directly affects the potency.
In the bath, sauna and hot tub, if you really really want to, you can visit, no more than once a week.
But a man who plans to become a father should completely abandon the "steam rooms": high temperatures cause the death of spermatozoa.
Sex — " on schedule"
The frequency of intimacy depends on temperament and many other objective factors, such as employment. But on average, sexual contact should be in the daily routine of every man 3-4 times a week. If less often, then stagnation occurs in the prostate due to the sluggish functioning of the "heart"-an ideal condition for the reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms and disorders of the blood supply to the genitals.
If sex is more frequent, the erectile resource of a man may simply not be enough, and at some point an unpleasant failure will occur. Well, the embarrassment of once or twice-the tenth can already lead to secondary impotence-which is caused by psychological stress and fear of failure. Restoring this kind of potency is much more difficult: pills against it are ineffective, because it "sits" in the head.
If, for some reason, sex is only 3-4 times a month, then it is still better than this month — every day, and in the other-only twice. After all, irregular" use " of the prostate gland also leads to stagnation and, as a result, inflammation in it.
