When it comes to erectile challenges, every man must cross this bridge at some point in their life and there’s no shortage of studies to back this up. For example, results from the highly reputable National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) showed the prevalence of sexual dysfunctions (non-specific ED) was 31% among men in the US. [i]

But this survey only scratches the surface. According to a worldwide study researchers estimated that in the year 1995 roughly 152 million men suffered from ED challenges and predicted the number to more than double to 322 million by the year 2025.[ii]   And in the UK, according to a study from Atomik research who polled 2,000 men for Co-op Pharmacy, nearly half (43%) of men aged 18-60 across the UK are suffering from impotence.

Sadly, this isn’t just affecting guys over 40. In the same UK poll, researchers found 50% of men in their 30’s struggled to get an erection compared to 42% in their 40s, 41% in their 50s, and 35% under 30. While these statistics may sound alarming, their ramifications for relationship stability are even more troubling.  Of the respondents, 31% have felt a strain on their relationship as a result of their problems, 31% broke up with a partner due to the issue, 25% lost confidence when dating and 21% suffered mental health problems as a result.

As of now, all statistics point to an epidemic, a sort of plague, which continues to grow out of control without the support of mainstream society.

But There Is Good News!

If any of this sounds familiar, don’t worry! Instead, you can take comfort in the fact that in one way or another, at some point in life, every man (and woman) share your dilemma, including top athletes, sages, billionaires, rock stars, presidents and people just like you and me.

Sadly, while every man may experience some form of erection challenge in their life, most do not seek help until its often too late. Instead, they choose to remain on the sidelines sitting on the bench instead of finding a solution and jumping back in the sack.  Multiple studies confirm this as well, including US research, which shows that men with health problems are “more likely than women to have had no recent contact with a doctor regardless of income or ethnicity.”[iii]  Unfortunately, this reluctance means that men often do not seek help until a disease has progressed.[iv]

As you might imagine, procrastination can have serious negative consequences. For example, deaths from melanoma are 50% higher in men than women despite a 50% lower incidence of the disease.  And while not as life threatening, loss of love in a relationship, as revealed in the UK poll, is more often than not a consequence of not getting help.

According to another study published by the British Medical Journal, it’s not that men don’t care about their health; a big part of the problem is that society and health institutions are not set up to cater to men’s needs.  For example, women’s clinics are quite common while men’s clinics are almost non-existent.[i]   Social conditioning also plays a role as men are conditioned to believe that being a man means being independent and any attempt to seek help is a sign of weakness.

Nothing Could Be Further From The Truth!

To really “Man Up” means you’ve made a conscious decision to set aside your fears and become a grower instead of just a shower (no pun intended).  While this may mean finding a great book and educating yourself, it’s important to know that even the best erectile disfunction books may not address the most important aspect of solving the problem.  Why?

Most books only address the problem with short term solutions like supplements and rarely address the roots which more often than not are associated with stress, diet and partner cooperation.   Man UP the new book just released by Chad Scott, bucks this trend by providing the ultimate guide for natural ed cures.  For a full preview follow this link Man Up The Ultimate Guide For Natural ED Cures!
