Erectile Dysfunction in 2022 – The Numbers Are Increasing, But Non-Surgical Solutions Are Here

by | May 24, 2022 | Treatments

Why are erectile dysfunction (ED) symptoms reported among more men today than in the past?

Is it diet? Depression? Something in the water? Or is there finally less stigma surrounding the struggle with libido and performance, so men are opening up to their doctors more?

Recent studies on male ageing show that erectile dysfunction is increasing, with approximately 40% of men reporting impotence issues by the age of 40 and significant increases yearly after. Globally, statistical trends show nearly double the number of erectile dysfunction cases reported between the mid-90s and today.

With these realizations come a few other helpful observations, including strong links between sexual function problems and mental health, and the roles that diet and heart health play in a healthy sex life.

Thanks to increased awareness and research focused on men’s sexual health, innovative ED treatment technology has been developed that offers renewed hope and a revived zest for life.

A growing number of men are discovering ViaSure ED treatment in Toronto. It’s Sovereign Male’s latest non-surgical therapy for erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’ s disease, pelvic pain, and more.

There is a safe, surgery-free way to improve your sex life and feel spontaneous and confident again. It’s great news for all men in 2022 and beyond.

What Is Increasing the Rates of Erectile Dysfunction in Toronto?

Though we may see Viagra commercials and assume that the inability to achieve or maintain an erection is an older man’s problem, young men in their 20s can also experience unpredictable or inconsistent erections. The prevalence does increase significantly with age, as do many of the contributing factors.

A precise symphony of chemical and circulatory changes take place when a man is aroused, allowing blood to flow into the penile tissue, then stay there until ejaculation. Any number of interruptions or deficiencies can interfere with the process. Physiological factors include:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Alcohol use
  • Smoking
  • Pelvic/perineal surgery or trauma
  • Obesity
  • Low testosterone
  • Pelvic radiation
  • Peyronie’ s disease

Recently, we’ve seen that depression can be a causal factor for erectile dysfunction. (The reverse is also true.) Because low sexual desire, or libido, can accompany generalized apathy or social withdrawal in depressed patients, it’s vital to address the whole mental health picture for each client, including root causes of anxiety, stress, or depression that could be killing the mood. Some men are so good at managing chronic stress that their first sign of an issue is problems in the bedroom.

How Can You Naturally Combat Erectile Dysfunction at Home?

  1. Exercise

It doesn’t seem fair, but men lose muscle mass, bone density, and steadily drop their testosterone levels every year after 40. Consistent exercise helps ward off numerous health issues, including ED. Improved circulation is integral to strong erections, and cardio plus weight-bearing exercise have also been known to increase testosterone production, which drives arousal.

  1. Consume Whole Foods

Whole, natural foods are rich in vitamins and protein. A balanced diet and optimal gut health also contribute to a positive mindset. Since obesity and diabetes are factors for ED, watch your waistline and be mindful of nutrition.

  1. Consider Counselling

Some people avoid psychological therapy or counselling until they have a crisis. The reality is that we all deal with loads of daily stress in our careers, relationships, and other areas. Relationship problems in particular are linked to erectile dysfunction, so talking it through with a qualified counsellor could do wonders to unburden you.

  1. Don’t Smoke & Limit Alcohol

Smoking reduces the blood flow to the penis, and alcohol acts as a depressant. Both can make it difficult to achieve or maintain erections.

  1. Get More Sleep

So many men are burning the candle at both ends, it’s no wonder that their mental focus, hormone levels, and sexual drive begin to suffer. When you sleep well, your body heals, testosterone increases, and even body weight is easier to manage.

How Does Sovereign Male in Toronto Treat Erectile Dysfunction?

ViaSure is the latest acoustic wave technology designed with powerful shockwave energy to effectively target even delicate penile tissue, with no downtime. We love that this painless, non-surgical, drug-free ED treatment takes just minutes to administer, yet the results are long-lasting.

The ViaSure SoftWave technology is scientifically proven to stimulate renewed blood flow (angiogenesis) and to restore smooth muscle cells. Because the most critical underlying physical factors for erectile disfunction often begin with blood circulation, treating the underlying cause of vascular-related erectile dysfunction is beneficial for a majority of men. In addition, shockwave therapy helps stimulate smooth muscle, collagen, and elastic for firm, strong penile tissue.

Our patients describe it as a game-changer. After the therapy, you can return to your regular activities right away. Yes, even sex. Your practitioner will discuss your goals, your personal health factors, and a plan custom-tailored for you. Then you can begin whenever you’re ready!

You don’t need to accept erectile dysfunction. Regain a fulfilling, exciting sex life and the confidence you once had at Sovereign Male.
