Penile Rehabilitation following Prostate Cancer Surgery by Dr Michael Gillman

Dr Gillman is articulate and educational in presenting to men and their partners about ED.
ED is the inability to sustain an erection. ED is common. However, after listening to this informative video you'll better understand the treatment options and when it's best to try each option.
Unfortunately, it's not well understood that an assessment of erection quality is a good idea prior to prostate cancer surgery as many factors concerning general health and lifestyle can contribute to this quality. If you are obese, smoke and your diet is not good then there is a need to correct the risk factors. Dr Gillman speaks about PDE5 Inhibitors (ie., Cialis, Levitera & Viagra); vacuum devices; penile injection therapy and penile implants.
You will be impressed with the information afforded you by Dr Gillman and it gives you the necessary empowerment to take to your medical specialist or GP to get the necessary help required.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment – Good Day New York | Dr. David Samadi

Dr. David Samadi discusses erectile dysfunction (ED), treatment methods, and the condition's link to cardiovascular disease on Fox 5's Good Day New York.

Erectile dysfunction is no longer seen as a separate condition that is treated individually. Its presence can signal reason to be concerned about heart disease, especially in younger men who are showing symptoms of early-onset erectile dysfunction. One main cause of ED is restriction of blood flow to the penis, which can be caused by atherosclerosis, or buildup of plaque in the arteries. This is a severe vascular disease that, if left untreated, can cause a heart attack or stroke.

Dr. Samadi suggests that if ED is present that patients talk to their doctors about their heart health. In many cases making positive changes to diet, exercise, and lifestyle can improve a man's erectile dysfunction.

Once those causes are ruled out, treatments can be provided to help with ED such as Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. Viagra and Levitra are short acting medications that stay in the body for about 4 hours, while Cialis is a long acting medication. A new daily version of Cialis is also available.

Dr. Samadi warns that the foods you eat can affect the efficacy of these medications, especially Viagra and Levitra. Fatty foods will reduce absorption of the medication into the body. For best results these medications should not be taken with food. Because Cialis stays in the body for a much longer period of time this is not as much of a concern.

Flavonoids: Nature’s Answer for a Better Sex Life?

Men, a glass of red wine may not just help you unwind — new evidence suggests it could help you in the bedroom, too.

A new study from England found that consuming certain flavonoid-rich foods and drinks was tied to a significantly lower risk of erectile dysfunction (ED), with the greatest benefits seen among men younger than 70. ED is a common condition that occurs when a man can't get or keep an erection firm enough for sex.

Lead study author Aedin Cassidy, PhD, a professor of nutrition at the University of East Anglia, explained that flavonoids are compounds found in many plant-based foods and drinks including fruits, vegetables, tea and wine.
