Top Foods to Improve Erectile Function

In the February 16th issue you learned how erectile dysfunction can make your penis appear smaller. But that really isn’t the main issue with ED. Neither is the inability to maintain an erection.

The real problem is that ED is primarily a vascular problem. Things like plaque deposits on the arterial walls, poor blood viscosity, blocked arteries and high blood pressure can all contribute to it. These are the same vascular concerns that cause heart attacks, strokes and heart disease.

The thing is, the blood vessels in the penis are narrower in diameter than in other parts of the body.  So, if your arteries are beginning to clog due to vascular disease, the penis is one of the first places you’ll notice a problem. Continue reading

Is Your Manhood Shrinking?

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

Your penis may look smaller as you grow older. But is it actually shrinking?

It’s not as though we men don’t have enough to worry about in that department. As we age, our man-parts don’t always perform exactly like we want them to. Add onto that the idea of a shrinking penis and it really ups the pressure.

Well, let me reassure you. The size of your adult penis was determined long before you were born. It’s like a genetic lottery – and you get whatever penis you’re dealt. Unless some type of surgery is involved, you’re never going to make it larger, and it’s not going to get any smaller. Continue reading

Why Everyone Needs a Good Roll in the Hay

Sex does a lot of good things for people.

Everyone needs to have the feeling that happens during climax – that dopamine release. This pleasure chemical is responsible for the euphoria and satisfaction that floods through the body during the “big event”.

But that wonderful feeling isn’t the only thing that happens. Continue reading

This Bedroom Surprise May Be a Sign of Heart Problems

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

December 28, 2020

I read an article the other day that surprised me.  It said a record high 23% of twenty-something men aren’t have sex regularly.[1]

“Are you kidding me? Why in the world not?”

I know many older men who would love to be having sex like they did in their youth. But their bodies just aren’t cooperating.

These older fellows come into my office begging me for help with their performance.  And they’re not alone… Continue reading

5 Myths About Testosterone Cleared Up

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

October 26, 2020

The causes of health problems aren’t always obvious. I know this more than most people.

That’s because – as a functional medicine doctor – I’m trained to look deep into every issue.  I talk with my patients, learn about their diet and lifestyle, and avoid looking for easy fixes at the bottom of a pill bottle.

So, when I have men come into my office with bedroom issues, I don’t always go with the obvious solution.  Many of these fellas think there must be something wrong with their testosterone levels. Continue reading

Common Heart Drug Zaps Testosterone

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

August 5, 2020

If you read my recent article about testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), you know it’s not a magic fix.

In fact, most problems with bedroom performance can actually be traced back to heart disease rather than testosterone deficiency.  And using TRT actually increases your risk of cardiac disease.

It’s bad news all the way around. Continue reading

Erectile function and Nitric Oxide

Skip the Little Blue Pill and Try This

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

September 23, 2019

I have men come into my office all the time looking for a little help in the bedroom. When it comes to intimate time with their partners, many of my patients have the desire…but are lacking the ability.

Most of these men are hoping I’ll prescribe a little blue or amber pill to keep them rigid for hours on end.

Sure, these pills provide a quick fix — improving blood flow to erectile tissue — but it’s only temporary.

These enhancing pills don’t correct the root of your problem. It’s like mopping the floor while the tub is still overflowing.

Male Menopause

Male Menopause: Myth or Reality?

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

  • The difference between low testosterone and male menopause
  • Is low T a lifestyle choice?
  • Grab control of the hormone that makes you manly

There’s a good reason guys are so crazy about girls when they’re in their teens and twenties. At these ages, testosterone levels are practically raging out of control. But once you hit 30, levels begin to drop by as much as 2% each year.

This makes male menopause a very real threat to aging men. (You might also hear this condition referred to as andropause or hypogonadism.)

But these days, I notice more and more guys in their 30s and 40s coming into my office with symptoms of andropause. They complain that their libido is on permanent vacation. They can’t keep the action going in the bedroom. Their energy levels are low and they’re moodier than they’ve ever been in their life.

This clearly isn’t a result of age-related testosterone loss. So what could be behind this anomaly? Continue reading
