Is ED Mental or Physical?
Updated: 2 days ago
For years it was medically accepted that ED was a mental issue without any concrete treatment options. That ideology has been thoroughly debunked. For men struggling with sexual performance issues, there are physical conditions that directly contribute to ED. The good news is that those issues are treatable with the right treatment protocol.
Physically treating sexual performance issues is usually a matter of increasing and improving blood flow.
Blood Flow and Sexual Performance
The vast majority of sexual performance issues can be linked to blood flow. Blood flow is key to achieving and maintaining an erection. The following is a diagram of how it works:
When a man is aroused, blood vessels open to allow blood flow to the penis, creating an erection. Once filled with blood the vessels close to maintain the erection. As a man ages his blood vessels are weakened or damaged. This can happen for a number of health reasons including high blood pressure, obesity, or plaque buildup. Even the most healthy men accumulate plaque in their blood vessels over time. As a result, it is only a matter of time before all men experience some kind of performance decline.
At Metro Men’s Health, we use the most advanced technology in the world. Linear Piezo Energy Protocol (LPEP) is a special soundwave that stimulates the repair and regrowth of blood vessels in the penis. In our clinics we’ve seen success in over 80% of our clients. A large part of our success is due to the personalized nature of our treatment. Before starting treatment, a licensed physical will perform a medical check, including a blood flow ultrasound to determine if you are a candidate for the treatment and tailor a treatment plan that will be effective based on your unique situation.
ED is not always a physical problem
Just because the most common root cause of ED is related to blood flow, it doesn’t mean that the occasional issue in bed isn’t a mental one. Stress, fatigue, and anxiety can all make it difficult to achieve or maintain an erection. Most men will experience some form of mental ED. If you believe stress, fatigue or anxiety are the roots of your troubles, meeting with a trained therapist or counselor can help.
If you come meet with our physician he can help you determine if your ED is a physical or mental condition and refer you to someone if it is mental. If it is related to blood flow then you're in luck! Our treatment is completely painless and discreet. Give us a call today to take the first step towards regaining years of intimacy.
