Pain Relievers and Sex Woes

Tuesday, 10 Dec 2013 08:45 AM

In 1979, when the glam-rock band Slade sang "Not Tonight Josephine," they were perpetrating a myth that a headache is a good reason to put off having fun with your honey. Well it's not; that is, if your ability to play isn't dampened by over-the-counter pain relievers you're taking.

A recent study of 80,000 middle-age men reports that more than 35 percent of those who regularly took NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen) had erectile dysfunction. But only 24 percent of those not taking the meds had ED. That surprised researchers who expected easing inflammation with an NSAID would relieve pain and reduce troubles with ED since inflammation in the arteries can cause erection problems.

So we got to thinking: What can you do to ease aches and pains, reduce inflammation and dodge ED?

1. Stop eating red meat and any foods with added sugars or sugar syrups; they clog your arteries, and that can lead to ED.

2. Eat only 100 percent whole grains, fish (salmon) that's loaded with inflammation-quelling omega-3 fatty acids and maybe take 900 IU supplement of DHA omega-3 a day (we like it from algal oil).

3. Get at least 30 minutes of added physical activity a day (head for that 10,000 steps a day; remember 10 minutes of aerobic exercise equals 100 steps).

4. De-stress with 10 minutes of meditation daily.

And then if you get a headache, remember, one study found that 60 percent of folks with migraines saw some or complete relief when they had sex. Always worth a try.
