Viagra may have changed everything fifteen years ago, but there’s some good news if you don’t like the idea of relying on a little blue pill: you might not need it.
According to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, you might be able to cure your ED without drugs. The study followed over eight hundred men for five years; during that time, nearly a third developed some form of erectile dysfunction. Thankfully, about a third of those men were able to cure their ED naturally.
According to Gary Wittert, one of the study’s co-authors: “The major risk factors for this are typically physical conditions rather than psychological ones, such as being overweight or obese, a higher level of alcohol intake, having sleeping difficulties or obstructive sleep apnoea, and age.”
Obviously, you can’t cure age, yet. However, you can lose weight, drink less, and improve your sleep—and more to the point, if you take care of one of those problems, you’ll be killing two birds with one stone. Which beats choking it, we guess.
