Medicine is finally starting to realize that erectile dysfunction is an early warning sign of serious heart disease that is going to raise its ugly head within the next 3-13 years, as an article in the American Journal of Medicine pointed out this year.
For the vessels that govern the blood flow to the penis merely reflect the disease that’s going on throughout the body, including the coronary and brain vessels.
As the director of male sexual health at New York University, School of Medicine has said, “The penis is a barometer of the health of the vascular system”.
Whatever you do, do not ignore this gift. It is a warning of far more serious trouble down the road that is completely reversible now.
