Healthy Lifestyle : Tips how to Maintainance

With all the things we do every single day, it's hard enough to keep track of the food we eat and the amount of exercise we get on a daily basis.

It is important to remember, however, that keeping ourselves healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is necessary for us to function better at work and avoid being sick too often. Neglecting our responsibilities to ourselves can result in several negative things we don't even want to think about.

What His Erection is Telling You

A man's penis is not only a measure of his manhood, it can also be a harbinger for hidden health problems. In 80% of cases, erectile dysfunction (ED), the inability to obtain and sustain an erection, can be traced back to an organic cause not related to sexual drive.

This may come as a surprise, especially to teenage boys, but obtaining an erection is physiologically hard. Penile erection can only come about when the necessary psychological, neurological, vascular and hormonal factors are all aligned. Problems along the way can stymie a night of lovemaking and take its toll on self esteem.

Impotence Symptoms

Impotence is a common problem among men characterized by the consistent inability to sustain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse or the inability to achieve ejaculation, or both. Erectile dysfunction can vary. It can involve a total inability to achieve an erection or ejaculation, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only very brief erections.
The risk of impotence increases with age. It is four-fold higher in men in their 60s compared with those in their 40s according to a study published in the Journal of Urology (2000;163:460-463). Men with less education are also more likely to experience impotence, perhaps because they tend to have less healthy lifestyles, eat a less healthy diet, drink more and exercise less. Physical exercise tends to lessen the risk of impotence.
