COVID & ED? What’s the Connection?

Covid virus
Covid Virus
SARS-CoV-2 Virus Causes ED?

You don’t need to be a lab coat wearing ‘expert’ to know that there might be a link between Erectile Dysfunction and COVID.

A few questions to ponder:

Does COVID, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, cause ED?

Can your Erectile Dysfunction be an indicator that you are more susceptible to COVID?

What about the vaccines? Will they help or hinder your erectile function?

The ‘science’ has been dribbling out … (here, here, here) – pardon the pun.

And it WOULD make sense that if a virus were to negatively impact your cardiovascular system – then it could also effect your ability to achieve natural, normal erections.

What we DO KNOW is that Erectile Dysfunction is a harbinger of cardiovascular illness (here, here, here).

Since the arteries that flow to the penis are some of the smallest in the body, they can be among the first effected by an underlying, even undiagnosed, vascular condition.

ED is a well-established early warning sign that something isn’t right – and you should take it seriously.

While it may be an uncomfortable topic to discuss, you should address it.

If you want to improve your erectile function, it will also require you to make difficult lifestyle changes: your diet, exercise, sleep and overall conditioning.

Sure you can take a little blue pill from here until the cows come home – but this is simply treating the symptom and NOT the cause.

ED will not disappear on its own.

But thankfully, ED can be safely and effectively treated using FOCUSED SHOCKWAVE THERAPY.

At Ottawa’s FocusWave Clinic, we combine our revolutionary, powerful, PAINLESS, natural focused shockwave therapy treatment, with improvements to your overall vascular health, including diet, exercise, sleep and more.

Our goal is singular – to help you enhance the quality of your sex life and your general wellbeing.

Contact FocusWave Clinic for a free consultation regarding erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease, and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

We can help to get you back on track!

Erectile Dysfunction and Gum Disease?

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: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5672720/

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

How Common Is ED?

graph of erectile dsyfunction
Graph of erectile dysfunction

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).

Laughter, Erectile Dysfunction (ED), Norm MacDonald

portrait of man
portrait of a man

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.

Chronic Pain, Tennis, New Shoes, Shockwave Therapy

Man playing tennis
Chronic Pain

So I joined a local tennis club last week.

I used to play competitive tennis when I was younger.

It was ‘MY sport’.

I had a dominant serve, a wicked backhand, a nasty spin, and a mean temper.

When I was 15 years old playing in an intercamp tournament, after losing a game, I bit my tennis racket and broke my braces.


But that was 28 years and 100 pounds ago.

Most of you who know me know I’m a big guy – 6’2”, 260lbs – thick like a can of Pepsi, but soft around the belly and big boned to boot (to quote comedian Dom Irrerra – “you got a lotta big bones comin’ outta yer ass!”).

I’m always battling the weight, but I’m also pretty active and coordinated (cat like speed and reflexes).

So I joined the ladder at the tennis club, hoping to get back into it.

I played my first match on Monday afternoon wearing a new pair (and new brand) of tennis shoes – thinking that would be a good idea.

It was not.

Halfway through the match, my body felt like a mangled pile of steel.

My foot, my knee, my lower back, my shoulder, my elbow.

After the match, and as I type this, I feel like I’ve been pulled out of a multi-car pileup on the Queensway.

I have not stopped whining for the last 24 hours, and my wife has just about had it with my not-so silent suffering.

Point is – despite my somewhat active life (10km walking per day, 700 push-ups per week), I’m certainly NOT in as good a shape as I thought I was!

All those new tennis muscles are reactivating (and throbbing).

And I realized that I have to stick with New Balance because they are the only shoes, it seems, that don’t wreak havoc on my entire body.

Can’t blame the shoes on my elbow – but I blame Asics for the rest.

As I whimpered in the car on the ride home from the club, all I could think was “Good thing I have access to the best chronic pain machine on planet Earth!”

The Swiss built Storz SD1 uses electromagnetic FOCUSED Shockwave Therapy to treat very specific orthopaedic chronic pains (plantar fasciitis, calcific shoulder tendinopathies, golfers’ and tennis elbow, jumpers’ knee, back pain, etc).

FocusWave Clinic is currently offering a 15% discount for all chronic pain patients throughout the month of August.

If you would like a free consultation, call the clinic at 613-422-9283.

PS – I won the set (6-3).

Considering Shockwave Therapy for ED? Ask These 3 Questions.

If you are considering Shockwave Therapy for treating your Erectile Dysfunction or sexual health condition, and are looking at available options, make sure you ask your clinic the following questions:

1) Will this treatment help me to perform like I did when I was 20 years old?

(ANSWER: NO! Run away from liars who make false and exaggerated promises.)

2) What type of Shockwave equipment are you using for this treatment? Is it an approved device for treating my Sexual Health Disease?

(ANSWER: Ottawa’s FocusWave Clinic uses Focused Shockwave Therapy, an approved treatment for Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease, and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. Radial / Acoustic / Pulse waves aren’t approved for treating sexual health conditions – they can’t reach the depth required to treat your condition, and for most people, they hurt.)

3) Does the treatment hurt, will I need numbing creams, and will there be any downtime?

(ANSWER: Focused Shockwaves might feel weird – but they are generally painless. No numbing creams are required. You can resume sex immediately after leaving the clinic. No bruising or side effects have been noted.)

Don’t be fooled by the lure of unlimited treatments with an inferior technology. Call FocusWave Clinic, Ottawa’s only locally owned Focused Shockwave Therapy Clinic, to find out more.
