What is Sexual Wellness?
At OptimalSelf MD, we believe that sexual wellness is part of a healthy, optimized life experience. Sexual dysfunction comes in many forms, but here we focus on the physical causes that we can correct. Male sexual dysfunction is not uncommon. In fact, we are seeing it in younger men far too often these days. It can consist of erectile dysfunction, lack of sensation and difficulty climaxing, or premature ejaculation. When this interferes with your relationship or your sense of self-esteem and self-worth, it's time to take action.
How is the cause of male sexual dysfunction diagnosed?
When evaluating male sexual dysfunction, we start with bloodwork. Hormone deficiency is a common cause of lower libido in men. Without enough of the right hormone, or too much of the wrong one, it can be difficult to achieve or maintain an erection. For that reason, we carefully assess hormone balance in all of our male patients, regardless of age. Other things can also be associated with impaired sexual function and response, including inflammation, elevated blood sugar, and high blood pressure. We have ways of correcting all of these things, and will discuss this with you at your consultation.
How are the conditions treated?
If low hormones are to blame, we start with hormone balancing. The treatment depends on the situation and your age. We may need to supplement with targeted nutraceuticals and prescription medications to boost your own hormone production. You may need Hormone Replacement Therapy.
If an aging circulatory system is to blame, we recommend StaminaWave™. This revolutionary and incredibly effective therapy can restore blood flow and sensation in a matter of a few weeks.
If aging in general and loss of physical stamina is the issue, we highly recommend the Optimal Shot™. Using your own platelet rich plasma, we induce regeneration of nerves and blood vessels, and restore the tissues to a more youthful degree of functioning.
Often, we recommend a combination of these treatments for the best possible result. Dr. Katherine also likes to recommend healthful lifestyle choices, nutrition, and stress reduction techniques as additional measures to ensure a happy and optimally "functional" life.
