Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
Impotence often has no pathological origins and is therefore not a consequence of a disease. In fact, the most frequent causes include:
- The stress that wears out all the functions of psycho-physical vitality.
- Prolonged and excessive consumption of tobacco and alcohol, especially when combined with an occasional and unbalanced diet.
- The natural slowing of metabolism and production of the male hormone (testosterone) which gradually occurs after the age of 40.
These causes create deficiencies that affect performance and that can be addressed by strengthening the body’s psycho-physical resources. Furthermore, the man who experiences moments of sexual impotence, even if sporadic, tends to exacerbate the fact, consequently accumulating performance anxiety which inevitably leads to an increase in the chances of a further failure.
In a minority of cases, impotence can be determined or accentuated by real pathologies:
- cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes, prostatitis, dropsy
accidents or surgery.
When you feel erection problems it is therefore always recommended to consult your doctor.
