The Importance of Sexual Health in Both Men and Women

By Dr. Viviana Cuberos

Sexual HealthWe’ve all heard the statistics that heart disease, breast, lung and prostate cancer are some of most common disease states in men and women, and if not treated, many times, they lead to untimely death, but we hear very little about the way sexual dysfunction can contribute to other health conditions. Sexual dysfunction affects both men and women. Women often succumb to vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) and men have issues with ED.

In the case of VVA, due to the limited estrogen supply, the walls of the vagina start to thin out and degenerate, causing dryness, burning and inflammation. This mucosal impairment can make intercourse very painful and can cause urinary disorders that interfere with daily activities, such as walking, sitting, standing and exercising. For many women due to the extreme pain and discomfort that it can cause, vaginal atrophy is a major lifestyle disruption.

In the case of erectile dysfunction, a recent article published in Psychology Today states the following: “Psychological: Depression, anger, anxiety, low self-esteem, sexual self-doubt, and poor body image can all interfere with erectile ability, as well as general enjoyment of sex. Of course, erectile difficulties can also cause or worsen all of these. For some men (and their partners), one random bout of erectile difficulty can cause a downward spiral of performance anxiety, where every time after they worry about their ability to get an erection which then undermines their ability to get one, which reinforces that worry, etc.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is deeply related to vascular health. Many men that begin to experience ED have little idea that they need to treat the arteriosclerosis in the penis as well as in their body. Most standard medical practitioners will start a man on the “little blue pill,” but this only masks the symptoms of ED and it definitely doesn’t treat the cause.

Any man that is showing signs of erectile dysfunction should seek alternative and thorough medical assistance from a physician that not only understands the disorder but one that also offers the most advanced treatment to address your overall health.

GAINESWave for Men
There is a better way than the standard of care by actually treating erectile dysfunction at its core. The GAINSWave is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that addresses the underlying causes of ED. GAINSWave uses scientifically proven technology through sound waves to stimulate blood circulation, tissue regeneration, and removes plaque build-up. Traditional treatments for ED, such as pills or injections, lose effectiveness over time and have to be used every time a man wants to engage in sexual activity. GAINSWave helps men to feel like themselves again and to enjoy their lives.

GAINSWave utilizes high frequency, low-intensity soundwaves to improve blood flow to the penis, remove micro-plaque, and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels. GAINSWave uses a specific protocol designed to optimize efficacy, safety, and results. Over 80% of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) issues are caused by poor blood flow. GAINSWave has developed a protocol to treat ED and Peyronie’s disease as well as enhance sexual performance.

ULTRA Femme 360 & O-Shot For Women
ULTRA Femme 360 is a safe, non-surgical alternative to labiaplasty and vaginoplasty procedures. It provides a complete vaginal rejuvenation, including vaginal tightening and labia reduction, with a single device.

The O-Shot is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that uses PRP to stimulate tissue growth and reduce frustrating changes to female health. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a substance obtained from blood and it is packed with powerful growth factors.

The O-Shot process begins with harvesting PRP. A traditional blood draw is performed to collect a sample. The sample is then spun at a rapid rate in a specialized centrifuge. This isolates the golden plasma substance from the rest of the blood, and the PRP is prepared for an injection.

O-Shot injections are performed in the comfort in the office. There is little to no pain associated with the injection process, and a form of anesthetic may be available for your additional comfort. Treatment sessions are relatively short, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities.

Results achieved with the O-Shot will vary for each person. While you may begin to notice some initial results, it is important to be patient as the PRP stimulates your natural growth processes. Additional follow-up treatments may be recommended to achieve and maintain the best results.
