1) Explore effective ED treatment options with your partner

We're thrilled to offer you and your partner the intimate-life-boosting effects of male shockwave therapy, which removes the side effects and inefficiency of past treatments to improve circulation and vascular function. Shockwave therapy does so by delivering low-intensity sound waves to the penile tissues. As a result, blood flow is increased to allow patients to achieve and maintain stronger, firmer, longer-lasting erections. Additionally, the benefits may extend to yield improved function and sensation while boosting stamina, desire, and confidence.

The procedure is considered painless, is noninvasive, and can be completed in half an hour or less. There's also no downtime since there's no surgery needed. So, you won't be sidelined for some extended period.

2) Talk to your partner, be understanding, and make them as comfortable as possible

It's also crucial to talk to your partner candidly and comfortably. It may mean shifting the conversation from the bedroom to elsewhere, as both partners may feel more vulnerable while in the bedroom. Physical and symbolic distancing can increase feelings of comfort and make the issue easier to talk about. And considering one's mindset and psychology can influence ED, this may be an often overlooked step.

Additionally, every good relationship is built on communication, and it can mean a lot to your partner to remind them that you care and that they're not alone in dealing with ED. We understand that many men find it difficult to discuss sexual issues. Still, the alternative leads to much worse outcomes: ignoring ED, and one's true feelings, can lead to a destructive cycle of lies, anxiety, resentment, and various negative sentiments.

You should also remind your partner that the condition is not their fault and is treatable and manageable – especially now, with the advanced medical techniques available to more people than ever. It's also important to remember that this condition is not due to a lapse of attraction, so a partner's ED does not mean they've lost interest in you.

3) Help your partner make healthy everyday changes

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that affects millions of men in America, and it has many causes and risk factors. Among the most influential is overall health, and a number of individuals afflicted with ED may also suffer from other conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and being overweight, among others.

As such, diet and exercise can be effective ways to attenuate the effects of ED. Being physically active can help one attain a healthier weight while offering multiple other benefits that reap rewards throughout the body. One prized benefit is increased vascular health, leading to improved circulation.

And since the circulatory system is a prime facilitator of firm, long-lasting erections that allow for meaningful intercourse, exercise can prove a useful aid. As can eating right. Supplying one's body with essential nutrients from fruits, veggies, whole grains, legumes, dairy, and other sources is vastly favorable to focusing on processed foods or those laden with fats or sugars.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is treatable. Explore your options today

Erectile dysfunction has negatively impacted millions of Americans. Not just those with ED, but their loved ones as well. ED can lead to stress, anxiety, and other negative mental states that can have rippling effects throughout one's daily life. And the loss of intimacy may harm one's relationship.

As such, it's invaluable to be there for your partner and to remain positive, because ED is a treatable condition and Dr. Thomas Burke would love to help. So, contact us today at Burke Wellness in Newark, DE.
