Is it time for technology to help you in the bedroom?
The Doctors welcome urologist Dr. Paul Thompson, who shares that shockwave therapy may be able to treat men whose sex drive has moved over into the slow lane. The acoustic wave therapy was originally used to treat wounds that would not heal and is now being used on erectile dysfunction, as it can help to improve blood flow in the penis.
He says the shockwave therapy will cause "micro-trauma" that results in improved blood flow (and also new blood flow) in the area treated by the soundwaves. The urologist notes most patients do not find the procedure uncomfortable or painful and says there are no side effects and no restrictions post-treatment with shockwave therapy.
A simpler sex hack to boost your sex drive might be maca root, which he says can help with a man's fertility, and for women, the maca root can help fight menopausal symptoms, can increase blood flow and arousal. He says the powder can be added to food like smoothies and yogurt.
