It Was Time for a Change
The pharmaceutical drugs had been working wonders for a long time. They enabled me to have sex.
And given that I had no success in finding a natural solution to my problems, I was reluctantly OK popping a pill before having sex.
That was until the day the drugs stopped working. My use of these drugs had gotten to the point where my body had built resistance towards them – the effect was gone.
This was the wake-up call.
It was time for a change.
I didn’t want any more temporary patches or quick fixes.
I wanted and needed to find a sustainable and long-term solution. I was desperate to solve – permanently – what was wrong with me.
I decided to leave the pharmaceutical drugs behind for good. It was time to throw them away and change the course of my journey.
It was back to the drawing board.
It was ground zero.
So What Did I Do?
I decided to be painstakingly meticulous, methodical and to record everything I did.
I thought if I was organized and systematic enough, if I discarded things that didn’t work and pursued those that seemed to have potential, I might have a chance to get to the bottom of this.
I might then possible be able to figure out exactly what the cause of my sexual problems were.
Needless to say, I was unhappy about having to deal with these problems – I wish they weren’t there – yet I was also strangely excited. I now had a clear mission ahead of me.
I started by drawing up a map of anything I could think of that could possibly cause these sexual problems.
This incuded bad diet, no sleep, stress, smoking, cycling, painkillers and medication, pollution, pornography, etc.
The next step was to to try to understand and educate myself in detail about each of these possible culprits.
After that, I wanted to understand to what extent these potential factors were applicable to me.
After I was happy with the roadmap, it was time to experiment, try, fail and learn.
I therefore started to experiment with each one of these potential factors (well any of them that I thought made sense), to try to learn how my body responded.
For instance, I experimented with diets. I tried vegetarian, vegan and other diets, until I found one that worked for me. One that my body was happy with.
And I would make sure I gave each diet sufficient time i order to draw a firm conclusion about it.
And when I had found a diet that worked for me, I changed my diet permanently to this new diet. And I maintained it for the rest of my experiment.
I then put a checkmark next to ‘diet’ in my roadmap. And I moved on to the next factor to experiment with.
And I did the same with all the other factors that I had identified. I experimented until I found something that worked for me, and then maintained this new change.
I kept track of exactly what I did, kept score, measured progress and failures.
I had a set of blood tests taken, checked my testosterone, I even had my sperm count and sperm motility checked.
I spoke to doctors, discussed the results and exchanged ideas of what the cause or causes could be.
I started making changes to how I lived my life. I changed my habits. One by one.
I changed the time I went to bed and I tried to sleep more.
I made a very conscious effort to not get stressed in stressful situations and to relax more.
I tried out a multitude of basic supplements such as multivitamins, minerals, fish oil, etc.
I experimented with a plethora of herbal supplements and other sexual health supplements, in different doses, different combinations, different quality and different strength.
I tried using these supplements on a daily basis and I tried taking them right before sex.
I meditated. I did yoga.
I experimented with sunlight exposure, from getting none to being in the sun for long periods of time.
I tried to understand how my mental state and overall happiness were impacting my sexual problems.
I went down paths I thought were going to lead me to the answer, but hit dead ends.
I pulled my hair out in frustration. Then celebrated small victories.
Occasionally I thought I had found a solution, just to be left heartbroken. I spent weeks on promising detours that turned out to be roads to nowhere.
But bit by bit, I found actions that yielded small positive results.
I focused extra hard on the actions that produced rays of hope in increasing my sex drive and improving my erectile functioning.
Then I zoomed in on them, tried to find out why they worked and then tried to do more of exactly what worked.
There was progress. I was able to maintain positive outcomes by continuing certain of the lifestyle changes.
And I made it! I found a solution to my sexual problems!
