I love answering questions on prevention because you have the right focus. You know so often people don't come to a sex therapist or seek treatment until they've already got a difficulty or have noticed problems with arousal erections. So it's great that you care about your health and your sexual health. So the primary tips are focusing on exercise, eating right and maintaining a healthy weight. Because that's going to decrease your risk for other diseases like cardiovascular disease or diabetes, conditions which in and of themselves can impact your arousal and erectile dysfunction as well as sometimes the medicines to treat those disorders. So keeping yourself healthy physically, noticing and paying attention to what to keep in your body is the most integral thing you can do to sustain good sexual health throughout your lifespan. Just remember that when you are preventing erectile dysfunction you are actually promoting your own best physical health and your own best sexual health.
