An Acidic Lifestyle and Diet Negatively Effects Your Sex Life

There's new advice for older men who want to preserve their sexual function: have sex, and have it often, researchers say.

In a study that followed nearly 1,000 older Finnish men for five years, researchers found that those who were regularly having sex at the start of the study were at lower risk of developing Erectile dysfunction (ED) by the study's end.

In fact, the more often the men had sex, the lower their ED risk.

The implication, say the researchers, is that men should be encouraged to stay sexually active into their golden years.

Dr. Juha Koskimaki and colleagues at the University of Tampere in Finland report the findings in the American Journal of Medicine. The study included
989 men who were between the ages of 55 and 75 at the outset.

Overall, those who said they had sex less than once per week were twice as likely to develop ED over the next five years as men who had sex at least once a week. Furthermore, compared with men who had sex three or more times per week, their ED risk was decreased nearly four-fold.

"A number of factors contribute to ED development, many of which could also affect a man's sexual activity -- such as age, an acidic diet (meat, dairy and sugar), lack of exercise, and a stressful life. However, after taking account of those factors, sexual activity itself remained linked to ED risk," states Dr. Robert O. Young, of the pH Miracle Living Center.

It may be a matter of "use it or lose it," according to the researchers. Just as exercise boosts physical fitness, they note, regular sexual activity may help a man preserve his erectile function and sexual drive.

ED occurs when there are problems with blood flow to the penis. Regular sexual activity, Koskimaki's team writes, may help maintain healthy blood vessel function in the erectile tissue.

Dr. Young states, "you cannot very well have an erection when you are eating animal proteins, dairy products, bread, alcohol and sugar from fruits.
Acidic foods and drinks will cause blood cells to stick together causing poor or restricted circulation to the extremities, including the penis. It then becomes impossible to have an erection or to sustain an erection for any length of time. That is why erectile dysfunction medications are so popular and why ED has become so prevalent."

The most effective way to prevent any sickness or dis-ease, including erectile dysfunction is to maintain the alkaline design of the body with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. This would include incorporating the following changes in lifestyle and diet:

1) Exercising for 1 hour daily

2) Eating all alkaline foods

3) Drinking 4 to 5 liters of alkaline water daily

4) Taking antioxidant supplements like glutathione CO-Q-10, pHruits and pHolage and chlorophyll

5) Ingesting 100 grams of unsaturated oils like flax, hemp, pomegranate and avocado

6) Ingesting 10 to 12 grams of mineral salts daily

7) Drink 1 ounce of liquid chlorophyll daily

8) Cleanse the bowels daily with mineral salts

9) Minimize stress with mediation, prayer, deep breathing, restful sleep and 30 minutes of sunshine.

As you maintain the alkaline design of your body, whether you are a man or a woman you can enjoy an active sex life for your entire lifetime.
