The Big 5 of Sexual Health
One of the most common questions by our patients is:
What can I do during the treatment course to improve my outcome?
At FocusWave Clinic, we view Sexual Health as being comprised of five major components:
Diet, Exercise, Sleep, Stimulation & Sex.
These often are interdependent.
If you notice one of them starting to erode, you may be at risk of losing them all.
Let’s go through them one by one:
Feed your body shit – you will feel like shit AND you will look like shit.
Sorry – but there’s no way around this.
When our patients start FocusWave treatments they tend to make a simultaneous goal to ALSO lose that extra weight.
They make it a mission to improve their eating habits, reduce junk food consumption, and incorporate more of the foods that ACTUALLY make them feel good.
They do their best to stop drinking to excess.
They try to ditch the cigarettes and ease up on the boozing and doping.
We can’t change your lifestyle – it’s up to you.
But it’s clear that those who improve what they input into their bodies get MUCH better results.
Read about Intermittent fasting, anti-candida cleanses, consider a visit to a Naturopath or Nutritionist (we can refer you!) – WHATEVER works FOR YOU – to get you on the right track.
Many sexual health conditions, like ED, are vascular diseases – and they can be a harbinger of illness.
Use this warning sign to your advantage by making the necessary changes to your diet and improve your overall cardiovascular health.
Recently we put out a list of sexual health friendly foods – let us know if you need some great recipes!
Extra calories and less activity can mean a higher risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
All of these conditions, and several others, are very common among sufferers of sexual health diseases.
With the gyms closed, you have to be creative.
Most of us love some form of physical activity – but stupid COVID has made it easy to sit on the couch all evening.
We have so many trappings of comfort – Uber Eats, Netflix, and a plethora of excuses.
But to quote David Goggins:
“Get your fucking running shoes on, pussy!”
Take 10,000 steps per day (that’s 80-90 minutes of walking).
Play with your kids or grandkids.
Do 100 pushups every day.
Can’t do 100?
Start with 1.
Practice Yoga (free videos on Youtube).
Have lots of sex! (More on that below).
Do whatever it takes to wear some sweat – everyday.
A body in motion will generally stay in motion – and the opposite is true, as well.
Some of us have brains that seem to operate 24/7.
We get that.
But shutting ‘er down, however you can, is so critical.
Critical for our appetite, our blood pressure, our immune system, etc.
Poor sleep habits have a huge range of deleterious cardiovascular effects.
They can also lead to higher stress levels, less motivation to be physically active, and unhealthy food choices.
And so It goes without saying that 7-8 hours of solid sacktime – EVERYDAY – is the absolute minimum mandatory to rejuvenate your mind & body!
Turn off your screens, keep the blinds closed tight, wake with the sun, make sure your mattress is as good as you can afford.
And by that, we mean intellectual stimulation.
Read a book, learn something new, challenge yourself.
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut – men we are a stubborn breed – but make a commitment to yourself to DO SOMETHING for your brain.
Your brain needs – no, it CRAVES your support – and you may be ignoring it.
You can only play Candy Crush or read the same garbage media for so long before your mind turns to goo.
That’s why you came here.
It all comes back to your sexual health.
Make sure that you are doing everything you can in the diet/exercise/sleep/stimulation pillars to get you in the mood.
Make a move, initiate contact, get intimate with your partner.
You can do it by yourself – but it’s never as fun.
Why Focuswave Clinic?
Focused Shockwave Therapy is an amazing medical technology – approved as both safe and effective for treating Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease & Chronic Pelvic Pain. If you are considering the treatment, make sure your clinic is using FOCUSED or LINEAR Shockwaves, NOT Radial or Acoustic or Pulse waves. Focused Shockwaves (what we use here at FocusWave Clinic) are electromagnetic, painless, and produce true shockwaves. The latter are inexpensive, generally painful, and mostly ineffective at treating many sexual health conditions because they don’t produce true shockwaves.
ALL THAT MATTERS TO US IS THAT YOU IMPROVE!
To your best health,
The FocusWave Team
