If Cortisol Is Up, So May Be Tumescence Dysfunction

If Cortisol Is Up, So May Be Tumescence
A man always wants his sensual life to be on the up and up, but when
tumescence dysfunction hits, it’s more like on the down and down. If his
basic male organ health is good – meaning, there’s no clear and overt
manhood-related issue, like trauma – it may be time to look for other causes.
And one of the primary reasons why a man may experience tumescence
dysfunction is that his cortisol levels are too high.
And cortisol is….?
Cortisol is a hormone that the adrenal glands produce. (A synthetic version
of it is available as a medication called cortisone, which has numerous uses,
including fighting inflammation, lupus, breathing disorders, and skin
conditions.) In the body in its natural state, cortisol is released by the adrenal
glands in order to take fats and proteins in the body and break them down so
that they can be more effectively used in the body, specifically to provide
energy to the body. So if a person is feeling somewhat lethargic or lacking in
energy, it is possible that one reason may be that his body isn’t making
enough cortisol. (There can be other reasons, as well.)
The levels of cortisol in the body typically vary throughout the day. For
example, when a person sleeps, their body has low levels of cortisol. When
he wakes up, there’s a rush of increased cortisol, which helps the body to
rouse itself out of its slumber. Similarly, when a person goes to the gym and
works out, the body releases more cortisol because that higher level of
activity demands it. These are examples of elevated cortisol levels that serve
a beneficial purpose.
Sometimes, however, high cortisol is associated with negative effects. For
example, a person who experiences stress has high cortisol levels – and if a
person lives at a level that is often stressful, his cortisol levels will remain
high for longer periods than they should. (The relationship between cortisol
levels and things like stress and exercise is actually a little more complicated
than that, but this simplified version is all one needs to know for a basic
And the tumescence dysfunction?
In general, high levels of cortisol are associated with a diminished sensual
drive and with varying degrees of tumescence dysfunction. Why should that
Basically because when cortisol levels are high, male hormone levels are
depressed. So a man who spends a lot of time in high-stress situations is
going to produce much less male hormone than he would otherwise. And
with lowered male hormone comes a lessened desire for sensual activity,
weaker or in some cases absent tumescences, and sometimes delayed seed
Lowering cortisol
So what are some ways of lowering cortisol and thereby allowing the body
to produce adequate amounts of male hormone? The best approach is to
consult a doctor so that a proper diagnosis can be made and an appropriate
treatment plan put in place. This might include:
 Finding ways to lower stress, such as engaging in meditation, yoga, tai
chi, et cetera
 Altering the diet so that one consumes fewer carbohydrates and more
lean proteins and fiber
 Adding supplements like vitamin C, glutamine, phosphatidylserine, et
Maintaining general male organ health can help decrease the likelihood of
tumescence dysfunction, especially if one also works on lowering cortisol.
Daily use of a first-class male organ health oil (health professionals
recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for
skin) is urged. Seek out an oil that contains a wide range of vitamins, such
as A, B5, C, D, and E. In addition, be sure that the oil being considered also
include L-carnitine, an amino acid that helps maintain adequate member
