There are many reasons why people do not prefer E.D. medication in the form of pills:
Pills are uncomfortable to swallow
Pill strengths are not customizable
The effects of pills take too long to kick in
The effects of pills don't last long enough
Pills are not providing the desired results
Pills are not a sustainable option for long term treatment
If E.D. treatment pills are not your preference for these reasons or any others, you don't have to give up. There are plenty of non-pill treatment options for you to choose from.
NON-PILL PHARMACEUTICAL OPTIONS FOR E.D. TREATMENT
Sublingual melts, such as Rugiet Ready, dissolve under the tongue, where the medicine directly enters the bloodstream, bypassing the liver and digestive system. This makes results up to 5X faster than pills and even chewable tablets.
They can also contain more than one ingredient, so you can get your E.D. treated by more than one mechanism of action. For example, Rugiet Ready contains custom ratios of sildenafil (Viagra generic) + tadalafil (Cialis generic) + APO. Sildenafil and tadalafil are both PDE5 inhibitors, while APO is a dopamine promoter. This means Rugiet Ready works for the body and the brain.
Melts also allow for fast onset to action without being affected by food intake, unlike pills.
Melts, such as Rugiet Ready, have been a great option for those seeking more out of their E.D. treatment than what pills can offer. For many, they're a great alternative to more invasive options if pills do not work at all for you.
"Rugiet is everything the company claims it to be. After a few years of (frankly) failure I tried Rugiet and it worked perfectly. Not only was I happy but so was my wife. It’s works quickly without any side effects. I feel like I’ve been given an important part of my life back." -Michael N. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
2. Chewable Tablets
Chewable tablets of sildenafil or tadalafil are ways to treat E.D. without taking a pill. However, water may still be required to remove the bitter taste of the active ingredients. Chewable tablets to not improve the onset to action of the ingredients, which is also impacted by food intake.
Although penile injections, like Trimix, are a pill-free way to treat E.D. they are much more invasive than oral pharmaceutical treatment options. However, if the above options do not work, talk to your doctor about Trimix. It can be a great way to treat E.D. when more intervention is required.
4. Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can be beneficial in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) by addressing underlying hormonal imbalances. Testosterone, a male sex hormone, plays a crucial role in sexual function, including libido and erection quality. In cases where ED is caused by low testosterone levels, TRT can help restore testosterone to normal levels, leading to improved sexual function, including increased libido and better erections. If you're interested in trying this method, talk to your doctor, or find a high quality telehealth program, such as HendRx, that works for you.
LIFESTYLE CHANGES FOR E.D.
Here's the truth:
Getting to a strong baseline of health will optimize all aspects of your life, including your sexual function.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition that affects the ability to achieve or maintain an erection, and it can have a significant impact on someone’s quality of life. While there are various medical treatments available for ED, lifestyle changes can also play an important role in improving erectile function, especially when it comes to improving vascular health.
Vascular health refers to the health of blood vessels in the body, including those that supply blood to the penis. Poor vascular health can be a significant factor in ED, as it can lead to reduced blood flow to the penis, which is necessary for achieving and maintaining an erection. Here are some lifestyle changes that can help improve vascular health and, in turn, potentially improve erectile function:
1. Regular exercise
Regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, jogging, cycling, or swimming, can help improve vascular health by increasing blood flow throughout the body, including to the penis. Exercise also helps to lower blood pressure, reduce body weight, and improve cholesterol levels, which are all factors that contribute to better vascular health.
2. Healthy diet
A well-balanced diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats can promote vascular health. Foods that are high in antioxidants, such as berries, leafy greens, and nuts, can also help reduce inflammation and improve blood vessel function.
3. Quit smoking
Stop the press: Smoking is bad for you.
Smoking is known to damage blood vessels and impair blood flow, including to the penis. Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your vascular health and overall well-being.
4.Limit alcohol consumption
It's relatively common knowledge by now that heavy drinking will impair your health in more ways than one, including your ability to get and stay erect.
Heavy alcohol consumption can have a negative impact on vascular health, as it can increase blood pressure, damage blood vessels, and impair liver function. Limiting alcohol intake or avoiding it altogether can benefit vascular health and potentially improve erectile function.
When we are under stress on a regular basis, we are not our best self, inside and outside of the bedroom.
Chronic stress can contribute to ED by increasing blood pressure, constricting blood vessels, and affecting hormonal balance. Practicing stress management techniques, such as mindfulness meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises, can help reduce stress and promote vascular health.
6. Sauna use and cold plunges
Sauna use and cold plunges, also known as contrast hydrotherapy, have been shown to improve circulation and vascular health. Saunas can increase blood flow and dilate blood vessels, while cold plunges can constrict blood vessels and stimulate circulation. Alternating between hot and cold water, or using saunas and cold plunges, may help improve vascular health and potentially benefit erectile function.
Overall, making positive lifestyle changes can improve vascular health and potentially improve erectile function in men with ED. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, managing stress, and incorporating activities such as sauna use and cold plunges into your routine can all contribute to better vascular health and may help alleviate symptoms of ED. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare provider before making any significant changes to your lifestyle or starting a new exercise regimen, especially if you have any underlying health conditions.
