Sexual dysfunction and the state of arousal
The average male sex drive is extremely powerful and often times much more powerful than a woman’s. Testosterone is the hormone behind libido in human beings – the chemical that puts us ‘in the mood’.
Sexual behavior is a complex psycho-physiological experience, and there are many factors involved in healthy sexual functioning. The male sexual response begins when the man becomes aroused and blood flows into the erectile tissue of the penis, causing the penis to swell and become erect. The male testes will also increase in size and become elevated, and the nipples will become erect and sensitive to the touch.
As excitement increases, there will be a further increase in the size of the glands and the diameter of the penile shaft as a healthy flow of blood to the erectile tissue is maintained. With continued stimulation, the man reaches a peak of sexual pleasure when there is dilation of the prostatic urethra and seminal fluid (sperm) flows into the urethra.
This is accompanied by a sensation of impending orgasm, leading to a rhythmic contraction of the perineal muscles and the pelvic reproductive organs, triggering a forceful ejaculation of semen and sexual release, followed by a state of deep relaxation.
In many cases, sexual dysfunction or sluggish sexual responses may be caused by poor systemic health, stress, the build-up of toxins and unhealthy lifestyles. Men who are healthy, fit and confident about themselves and about life usually report a vigorous and satisfying sex life, no matter what their age.
In combination with a healthy lifestyle and diet, Ikawe helps relieve symptoms of sexual dysfunction, while supporting overall reproductive health and well-being.
The natural way
A healthy diet and regular exercise can improve a man’s sex drive. But stress, overindulgence in food, alcohol, or exercise can reduce his sex drive. Wearing loose-fitting trousers and cotton undergarments will allow the testicles to hang away from the body and maintain a lower temperature – essential to healthy sperm production.
Natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support the solid health of the male reproductive system, supporting healthy and efficient testosterone production, healthy sperm and the maintenance of healthy, strong erections.
Practitioners of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, African herbalists and traditional healers from a wide range of cultures have many centuries of knowledge regarding the use of herbal medicines to maintain optimum health, sexual desire and sexual functioning.
Studies have shown that many of these herbs have the ability to improve peripheral and systemic blood flow and to act as vasodilators, leading to increased blood flow to the penis and erectile tissue and therefore heightened sexual pleasure and performance.
In the correct dosage, certain herbs have also been shown to stimulate adrenal glands, improve endocrine and male hormonal functioning, boost stamina and vitality, increase libido and improve the health and functioning of the sexual organs, especially the prostate, penis and urethral systems.
In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom. There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the male reproductive system,identified as having strong aphrodisiac properties and the ability to improve sexual functioning and overall systemic health.
