Is Erectile Dysfunction Caused By A Man’s Relationship With His Mother?

Research has suggested that erectile dysfunction could be caused by the relationship a man has with his mother. erectile dysfunction

The study, which was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, showed that a strained relationship with your mother as a child can cause sexual problems as an adult.

Charles University in Prague conducted a survery which found that men who didnt say ‘L’ word (love) until later in life had issues in the bedroom.

960 men, aged between 15 and 88, participated in the study and were asked about their sexual habits, their relationship with their mother and the age they fell in love.

The study concluded that: ‘The association of poorer current sexual function with (historical) older age at first being in love might suggest some enduring conflict regarding sexuality and/or intimacy.’ 

Which means that men who have more difficulties with sexual functions later in life had also tended to fall in love later on.

Regarding the relationship between men and their mothers, the study found: ‘One explanation for this finding is that psychogenic factors (when a physical illness stems from an emotional stress) may play a more important role.’

This means that if a man has emotional issues as a young man they may stem into physical issues in his later life.

Could Orbera Be The Key To Weight Loss?

Orbera may be the new solution for adults struggling to lose weight, without the need for surgery. orbera

Orbera is a tiny balloon that is inserted in the stomach through the mouth, with an endoscope.

An endoscope is a long, thin medical device usually used to look inside a body cavity or organ.

The insertion is a non-surgical outpatient procedure and takes around 30 minutes.

Once the balloon is in place it is inflated with saline.

The balloon stays in place for 6 months and will help regulate portion control.

During the 6 months, and for 6 months after the balloon has been removed, the patient will also undergo coaching to help with their diet and excerise.

Orbera is suitable for patients who are morbidly obese, with a BMI (body mass index) of 30 to 40 and have already tried other diets and exercise options.

255  patients participated in a clinical trail for Orbera for 1 year.

Of the group, 125 patients had Orbera in place for 6 months and then removed.

The remaining 130 patients took part in a behavior modification program for a year, but did not receive the device.

The results showed that patients with Orbera lost an average of 21.8 pounds after the device was in place for six months.

Those patients managed to maintain an average 19.4 pounds weight loss three months after it was removed.

The 130 patients who didn’t receive the device only lost an average of 7 pounds.

The prescription only medicine Xenical is available for adults who are overweight with a BMI of 28 or over.

If you are overweight (BMI 28 and over) and tried dieting and excerise but still haven’t had success – please go to for a free consultation for other weightloss options.

Can Pelvic Floor Exercises Prolong Ejaculation?

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is the most common ejaculation problem. premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates with little sexual stimulation and before the man wants.

Some of the causes for premature ejaculation are:

  • stress
  • relationship problems
  • anxiety
  • penis sensitvity

Marni Kimrys, a U.S dating coach has a solution which can help control ejaculation – by holding in urine for 5 seconds.

This will strengthen the kegel (pelvic) muscles which can prolong ejaculation if practised often enough.

Kegel muscles help with bladder function and ejaculation.

But as men and women age, these muscles become stretched or weaker.

When urinating is stopped mid-stream, the kegel or pubococcygeus (PC) muscles are activated.

Ms Kinry explains in a youtube video: ‘Kegel exercises are something you can do everywhere, at every moment in your life. Driving in a car, in your office, sitting at the doctors.

‘They control your pubococcygeus (PC) muscles so you can control ejaculation and prolong ejaculation’

‘You want to work your way up to 50 reps a day, a rep being clenching your PC muscles for three to five seconds, and then releasing.

You start off by doing 1 to 20 reps then work up to doing 50 reps.

‘Then you want to increase the time from 5 to 7 seconds. Keep increasing from there.’

‘This will help strengthen your PC muscles so you never have to worry about premature ejaculation again.’

If you are diagnoised with premature ejaculation then prescription medication is available such as Priligy.

If you suffer from premature ejaculation and would like to know more about Priligy, please go to: for your free e-consultation.

Can Cannabis Improve Your Sex Life?

Both women and men can experience sexual dysfunction. cannabis

Female sexual dysfunction can include loss of desire, loss of arousal and problems with orgasm.

Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation are common male sexual dysfunctions.

There are various treatments for these conditions such as Viagra and Priligy.

According to a new survery, from the California medical marijuana company, it that been found that smoking cannabis can serve as a ‘natural’ aphrodisiac.

The results showed that 14% of people taking medical marijuana use the drug to boost their libido and women are more likely to use cannabis, rather than men, to enhance their sex drive.

New York City sexual therapist Dr Ian Kerner said: ‘For men who I work with who suffer from erectile disorder, smoking pot before they have sex can really help them relax and maintain erection.

Studies have shown that for women to go through the process of arousal and to reach orgasm, parts of the brain associated with stress, anxiety and high emotion deactivate.

For some people who can’t lower their anxiety on their own, pot helps them relax.’

However, Dr Kerner has stressed that the effects of cannabis on sex are very person-specific.

Could Sildenafil Increase Skin Cancer Risk?

Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, was originally developed to treat heart conditions, but during original trials it was found to be more effective at treating erectile dysfunction (also known as impotence).sildenafil

But now, scientists have warned that the drug could increase the risk of melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer.

Researchers at the University of Tübingen in Germany have discovered that Sildenafil can encourage tumors to grow more rapidly.

A recent study found that Sildenafil can stimulate skin cancer growth.

Sildenafil has a stimulating effect on the messenger molecule cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which promotes the growth of existing malignant melanomas.

The scientist came to this conclusion through animal experiments and human cell cultures.

Cells normally contain an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5), that ensures the newly-formed cGMP is continuously broken down.

But, Sildenafil belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitors.

Study author Professor Robert Feil said: ‘Taking sildenafil basically disables this brake.’

Consequently, the melanoma begins to grow more aggressively.

However, the study noted that there is no reason for men to stop taking PDE5 inhibitors to treat erectile dysfunction.

The researchers also have to take into account that the possibility that a higher incidence of skin cancer may be due to lifestyles, including sunbathing on holiday.

Professor Feil warned: ‘Ultimately, we should all be thinking about reducing our risk of skin cancer and cutting our exposure time to the sun, as well as using effective UV protection.’

Sildenafil is marketed as Viagra and was approved by FDA (The Food and Drug Administration) on 27th March 1988. Pfizer’s patent on Sildenafil expired on 21 June 2013.

If you are concerned that Sildenafil (Viagra) could increase the risk of skin cancer then there is other alternative prescription only  medication for erectile dysfunction such as Cialis and Levitra.

New Breast Cancer Treatment Eradicated Tumors In Just 11 Days

A new treatment for breast cancer has been discovered that wipes out tumors in just 11 days.breast cancer

A team from the University of Manchester and the Institute of Cancer Research in London announced the results at the European Breast Cancer Conference in Amsterdam.

The UK team said that they have never seen breast cancer patients respond so quickly to a cancer treatment.

The trail involved recently diagnoised women with an aggressive form of breast cancer and they were given two existing cancer drugs – Tyverb and Herceptin –  at 23 UK hospitals.

The test showed that the cancer had stopped producing more cells in 87% of the particpants.

But to the surprise of surgeons, the tumor had completely vanished
in 11% of women.

The team initially aimed to shrink the tumors in the few days before surgery, but when the surgeons tried to remove the tumors they found that the tumor had vanished in some women.

In the UK, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives.

Breast cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer in women in the United Kingdom.
