All of the chemicals and toxins in the environment, especially in the food we eat can damage a man’s sexual health (askmen.com). They also speed up the aging process and make it harder to lose excess fat. The trouble is most men don’t even know they are being affected. Are you experiencing the following symptoms: lowered sex drive, food cravings, digestive problems, weird mood swings, stubborn fat, constipation, allergies, sugar levels that spike or drop precipitously, or blood lipids that are out-of-control? If you are experiencing a few or many of these ailments, it may be coming from the foods you eat. Pharmaceutical and food companies are mostly to blame. Processed foods, supplements, water and air pollution and foods which are commercially grown, particularly dairy and meat, are the culprits. The toxins and chemicals these foods are laden with include lead, aluminum, mercury and other heavy metals, genetically modified foods (GMOs) that can change your DNA, residues for hormones and antibiotics and even xenoestrogens from herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. Since these chemicals are transformed into estrogen in your body they sap your masculinity, make it more difficult to lose weight and speed up aging.
So what are some things you can do to curb this problem and maintain optimal sexual health? First, start by identifying the foods that are dangerous from your diet and supplanting them with healthy ones. Next, detoxify your body. Each morning start off the day with a glass of warm water with one fresh squeezed lemon added to it. This stimulates the liver and the gall bladder which are the organs responsible for removing toxins from the body. It will help them to expel bile full of toxins that have built up from the day before and overnight. Cut out as much processed sugar as you can. It makes insulin and the blood-sugar level spike in your blood. Cut down on wheat products which curb the production of testosterone in the testes. Increase your intake of vegetables. Veggies are natural detoxifiers. Brussel Sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage—even sauerkraut help clean out the nasty chemicals that have built up in your system. Make sure to get plenty of rest. Exercise regularly, at least 20 to 30 minutes of continuous cardiovascular exercise three times per week. Find ways to manage emotional issues such as stress, depression and anxiety. Look for foods in your supermarket that are GMO free. Make sure you use a water filtration system at home. Limit the amount of dairy you eat and try to select meat that is hormone and antibiotic free. Going the extra mile will ensure you are healthy and that your sexual health is optimal for years to come.
