Did you know that erectile dysfunction (ED) is closely associated with gum disease????

It makes some sense since gum disease and vascular health are very intertwined.

Check out this study:

Make sure you visit your dentist at least twice a year and take care of those chompers!

How Common Is ED?

What is the prevalence of Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

According to this study – there’s a wide range.

At Ottawa’s FocusWave Clinic, the average patient age is about 56 years old – but we have treated men aged 19 to 91.
The rule of thumb is that 40% of men over 40 have experienced ED, 50% of men over 50, 60% of men over 60, and so on.

Bottom line – if you get to 100 years old – its basically assured that you are going to need some help!

Why not start treating THE CAUSE and not just the symptom?

Non-invasive & PAINLESS, Focused Shockwave Therapy is a side-effect free technology that can help men to achieve natural, longer lasting and fuller erections.

The treatment is also approved for treating Peyronie’s Disease (PD) and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS).

As well, our clinic treats all ranges of CHRONIC PAIN conditions (Plantar Fasciitis, Calcific Shoulders, Tennis/Golf Elbow, and much more).

FocusWave Clinic in Ottawa is looking for 10 female volunteers who wish to receive a COMPLIMENTARY treatment course of Focused Shockwave Therapy to see if this revolutionary modality can improve your condition.

That’s correct – this $2,000 treatment is FREE for the first 10 women who qualify.

Currently, our clinic is using this proven technology to treat sexual dysfunction in men (Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease, Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome).

Our patients are having excellent success, even better than what the peer reviewed studies would suggest.

For nearly 100% of patients, treatments are painless, side effect free and require no downtime.

It’s totally non-invasive and needle free.

We are trying to replicate this success in women – and need to show the efficacy that’s possible through a group of healthy volunteers.

So if you have had enough of Chronic Pelvic Pain, lack of sexual desire and low sex drive – why not give Focused Shockwave Therapy a shot?

These 10 spots should fill up quickly, so please call us at 613-422-9283 to see if you qualify.

Laughter, Erectile Dysfunction (ED), Norm MacDonald

Norm MacDonald, who gained fame on Saturday Night Live, and was an internationally recognized comedian, died this week at age 61.

Norm attended high school in Ottawa and started doing his devastatingly deadpan, rambling stand-up comedy at the local Yuk Yuks.

What does the passing of this local comedy behemoth have to do with Erectile Dysfunction?

First of all: LAUGHTER can help to improve your vascular function!

When you laugh, your heart rate increases, deep breathing is stimulated, and more oxygenated blood circulates through your body. It’s an incredibly healthy physical reaction that requires very little effort!

Laughing isn’t only good for your vascular health, but also for your mental health, too! Remember that sex starts in the mind – so improve your confidence and your chances in the bedroom by getting out there and getting laughing!

Go to a comedy club with your partner or watch a great stand up special or hilarious movie together at home. Play a fun board game like Pictionary – you can laugh yourself stupid with a glass or two of wine.

Back to our protagonist…..

Like most men, Norm was very private about his health.

He quietly suffered from leukemia for almost a decade. Ironically, while he never publicly acknowledged his cancer, he was quite open about discussing his own battles with erectile dysfunction (NSFW Video, not for the easily offended!).

Norm was unapologetic about providing some comic relief when discussing this difficult disease (NSFW video, not for the easily offended!).

Bottom line is that if you are considering shockwave therapy for Erectile Dysfunction (ED), Peyronie’s Disease (PD), or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) – the treatment has never been as painless, side-effect free, and non-invasive as it is today.

INSIST on FOCUSED Shockwave Therapy, and never Radial/Acoustic/Pulse Wave therapy, so you can get the highest quality treatment available.

Don’t be ashamed or embarrassed about your condition – almost 50% of men over the age of 40 have suffered from bouts of sexual dysfunction.

It’s not going to get better on its own – you have to do something about it.

And don’t forget to laugh!

Laughter is the best medicine.

Unless of course you are a diabetic.

And Then – Insulin!”

– Norm MacDonald (1959-2021)

RIP Norm.
