5 Things You Can Do Today To Boost Your Sex Drive

Sometimes the issues involved with ED can interfere with a couple’s sex life. Fortunately, there are several things that couples can do to ensure the flame in the relationship doesn’t go out!

Improve Your Relationships

It may seem obvious that improving your relationship with your partner will also improve your sex life, but I think many would be surprised to realize how little time and effort is actually devoted to this one activity. Try setting aside some exclusive “couple time” to get things started and as you move into foreplay, try having a thoughtful, honest conversation with your partner about your sexual desires and needs. You may be surprised at how understanding each other’s sexual desires can greatly improve the quality and frequency of sex in your relationship.

Get Some Sleep

Everyone knows that sleep is essential to maintaining a healthy body, but even so, few of us get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep every night as recommended by the National Sleep Foundation. Just like our waking hours, sleep has a vital function in the way our bodies function. Consistent, restful sleep will not only help your body boost testosterone levels, it also can improve your mood, energy levels, and focus. Consistency is really the key, though. Like all good things, it takes time for your body to establish a new rhythm so by committing to getting enough sleep nightly you are positioning your body to be in prime condition when the moment arises.

Eat A Salad

In a 2 year study conducted by the International Journal of Impotence Research, scientists discovered that men who maintained a diet of fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and unsaturated fats reported improvements to their erections and overall sexual health. The change in diet also had the side effect of weight loss for many of the participants, which then improved their circulation and heart health. Additionally, by replacing some of the processed sugars in your diet, you may also stave off other diseases like diabetes, which is also linked to erectile dysfunction.

Get Some Exercise

In another study conducted by the Journal of Clinical Hypertension, researchers point to data that suggests that regular exercise can help with ED. Regular exercises can not only improve your circulatory health, the subsequent weight loss and improved body image can also work against any negative psychological impairments that may be affecting your sex drive.

Talk to HealthWave About It

It is not uncommon for some men to experience better results when they are able to address their declining sex drive with a professional. Although some of the barriers that men face psychological, discussing any symptoms with a trained professional can help identify strategies for restoring a man’s sexual drive.

Shockwave acoustic therapy, for example, is a safe, clinically-researched treatment option that works by breaking up tiny deposits of plaque in and around the penis and stimulating nerve and cell growth, which in turn promotes strong, longer lasting erections and more satisfying orgasms.
