Probably the most important thing I learned from my 10-year long battle with sexual problems is that my body is a very, very complex and sophisticated system of countless number of parts. It is extremely delicate and sensitive, and it needs constant care, attention and maintenance to operate optimally.
There are a vast number of factors (bad habits or even one-time actions) that can throw a body off balance. We don’t even think of many of these factors because they have become so ingrained and ‘normal’ in our everyday lives. Stress, for instance, which has become part of many people’s work environment or daily lives, can do all kinds of damage to a body’s fine-tuned system.
And my body was, given how lived my life during the last few years, pretty much always in a state of mild or moderate distress. It wasn’t completely off tracks and burning – I still had decent amounts of energy and lived life mostly the way I wanted to. But there were typically always something I was doing to my body (one or more bad habits or actions) that kept it away from a balanced and happy state. And for me, two of the first functions to shut down when my body was off balance were sex drive and erectile functioning.
I didn’t put my body in a state of constant distress because I wanted to suffer. I didn’t seek pain. I did this because I didn’t know any better. I simply didn’t have the knowledge at the time to treat my body and mind the way they should have been treated in order to function optimally.
But through more than 10 years of researching, experimenting, trying and failing, I finally obtained the knowledge about how to keep my body and mind in balance. I learned how to make my body and mind happy and how to make them function optimally, or close to optimally. And after I was armed with this knowledge, I implemented a set of specific actions to overcome erectile dysfunction and an almost non-existent libido.
I stopped watching porn, I stopped masturbating, for some time I even stopped having sex. I also did not allow myself to have frequent orgasms. I basically stopped anything sexual. I also changed my diet to one that is super healthy.
Although I had pretty much always exercised, I made sure I exercised frequently, and ideally at least for one hour every day. I was guilty of stressing way too much, and one of the changes I made was to try very hard to stress down, relax and to give myself breaks. I also picked up meditation.
My old sleep habits were also not very good, so I changed my sleeping environment and my sleeping habits to give myself more and better quality sleep.
In the past, I would also shun the sun like an evil, but I have now learned to embrace the sun and seek the rays of the sun when I can. I also try to ensure that I live a good social life, that I have good relations with family, friends and people in general and that the state of my mental affairs is good.
Not only did I implement these changes when I first learned about them, but I have kept them up ever since. As I am writing this, it has been about three years since I started. I have made all of them key parts of my life. I follow them every day. These changes have made huge improvements to my life, not only in terms of sexual health, but also in terms of overall health, how I feel, how I look at life, and my happiness. Because I have learned how positively these habits or changes impact me, I take them with me everywhere, and I also intend to continue doing so until my time on planet earth is over.
My body and mind are now in balance, and I no longer struggle with erectile dysfunction or libido problems. The days when I couldn’t get it up are gone. I now have a very healthy sex drive as well as sex-life. I no longer worry about sex or any issues related to it. Implementing these changes and staying true to them has been a life-saver for me. It has increased my life-quality beyond what I can describe with words, and it has really given me my life back. I am now happy as I ever was and I function sexually as I did at my peak.
