Problems in the bedroom can happen to anyone, regardless of age, race, physical fitness or any other factors. Although common, that doesn’t mean there isn’t any recourse for men who want to continue performing at their best. When it comes to early or premature ejaculation, the following five natural remedies can help bring the problem under control.
1. Back to Nutritional Basics
When it comes to factors that can damage sexual performance, diet is one of the biggest culprits around. So many people today have a hectic schedule or a busy lifestyle that eating on the go has become commonplace. While the convenience of fast food and take-away options may be tempting, those convenience foods come at a hefty price. Most, if not all, of them are laden with fat, sugar and salt which can directly affect your cardiovascular system. In terms of general health, this means people who grab and eat often can experience obesity or high blood pressure. In the bedroom, it can result in poor performance in terms of stamina and, for some men, even impotence. Trade in drive-through lunch options for those you pack at home and give up the morning donut for a muffin or piece of whole wheat toast instead.
2. Move It!
In addition to cleaning up your diet, increasing your level of physical activity can also play a major role in treating sexual performance problems effectively. Keeping active boosts stamina and cardiovascular health which can improve performance. Exercising regularly can also increase libido for both men and women. Many times, this can improve sexual performance as well since libido is tied in so closely with overall performance.
3. Switch Things Up in the Bedroom
Changing positions can also help treat premature ejaculation. Instead of using your tried and true positions, mix things up a little to keep things interesting. This has a number of benefits. First, by simply stopping to change positions, you give your body a chance to rest for a moment and prevent over-stimulation which can lead to early ejaculation. Secondly, you can choose positions which don’t overstimulate the underside of the penis which can improve stamina.
4. Find Your Happy Place
Stress and anxiety are two of the leading causes to a number of chronic conditions, including sexual performance problems. Find a way to release stress and invite peace of mind. Meditation is an option which works wonders for many people, even if it’s something they have never considered before. The basics of mediation are simple enough for anyone to do – just stay still and quiet for a few minutes. This can be done first thing in the morning in order to clear your mind before tackling the day or as a way to end the day and clear your mind before you hit the sheets. When stress comes up during the day, taking a few minutes to simply sit and count your breaths is also a quick way to bring your temper under control.
Using sex as a treatment for sexual performance problems may seem a bit strange at first, but controlled masturbation has proven effective for many men. Simply begin masturbating as normal but then stop when you begin to feel yourself building too close to orgasm. This Stop and Start method can be used to treat premature ejaculation over time and also improves stamina in the long term.
There are a number of other medical treatments for premature ejaculation as well. These five natural options simply give men the chance to address the issue on their own. Since the condition is so common, taking these simple steps often addresses the underlying cause and helps men to get back into the swing of things in no time.
