Neuromuscular and musculoskeletal pelvic floor mastery have a direct and profound influence over erection and ejaculation function, and are key in correcting male sexual dysfunction. They can be underfunctioning, or, in some cases, overfunctioning.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the inability to develop and maintain an erection for satisfying sexual intercourse or activity. It affects more than 20% of men under age 40, and more than 66% of men over age 70. (Feldman et al., 1994, Heruti et al., 2004)
Premature ejaculation (PE) is defined as ejaculation occurring with minimal stimulation and earlier than desired. It is found in 76% of men age 18-65 (Waldinger et al., 1998).
HOW DO YOU FIX IT
Conservative management of these complaints includes strength and endurance training of all the involved musculature, nutritional support, and painless electrical stimulation. Well coordinated pelvic floor muscles are able to push blood into the erectile tissues during erection, and help prevent it's drainage during intercourse. Specific nutrition will support nitrous oxide levels allowing for ease of engorgement.
Also of note here is the level of life stress, which may sound trite, but consider this. Sexual physiology is governed by the autonomic nervous system which is your "fight or flight" and "rest and digest" switching station or command center. You can flip from one to the other with a mere anxious thought. When you're in "fight or flight" mode, your body shunts the majority of blood flow to your thighs, lungs, brain and eyes to hasten a quick get away from danger. Notice the blood is nowhere near your genitals.
Our holistic and frequency medicine treatments will get you on your way to controlling your "switching station" allowing you to chose which state you want to be in. Note: both states are necessary for life success.
Scientific studies looking at motor control in these areas, assisted by EMG Biofeedback and electrical stimulation facilitation, have shown it to be effective:
A 2002 randomized controlled study of 104 men with ED, between the ages of 21-72, were treated for 3 months with either Pelvic Floor Training, PDE5 inhibitor medication (Viagra, Cialis etc) or placebo. In the Pelvic Floor Training group, 80% reported significant improvement. In the PDE5 medication group reported 74% improvement, and the placebo group reported 18% improvement (Sommer et al., 2002)
A study of 18 men with PE, ages 20-52, were all treated with Pelvic Floor Exercises and electrical stimulation facilitation. After 7 weeks of 3x/week intervention, 61% of subjects reported feeling “cured” (Le Pera & Nicastrano, 1996).
**It is important to note that erectile function, in general, is a marker for overall cardiovascular health and erectile dysfunction may warrant a visit to a cardiologist.
