This post has been a long time coming. Seriously. Ever since my 333 Uses For Coconut Oil post went viral, my male audience has emailed me time and time again, asking if coconut oil can help with erectile dysfunction. And we aren’t talking about “too stressed out to make it work today” dysfunction. Or “baby is crying in the other room and my wife is distracted by it” dysfunction. No, we are talking about true erectile dysfunction. The type that tags along with aging, medical issues, and long-term anxiety & stress (just to name a few causes).
I decided that now was the time to tackle this sensitive yet important topic. I mean, it would be nuts not to right? (Nuts as in coconuts – extract mind from gutter please).
Researching this topic was rather time consuming. Unlike every other use under the sun, apparently coconut oil isn’t the “go-to” natural remedy for ED. It’s unfortunate really because it does bring something important to the table for men with erectile dysfunction.
What’s that you ask?
An improved libido.
Yes, libido. Men have to have a healthy libido in order to experience the arousal necessary to trigger a true erection. I am in NO WAY stating that all men with ED have a low libido, but they often do go hand in hand. Hence the focus on libido. (But please keep reading even if your libido is a force to be reckoned with because there is useful information in here for you as well).
Low libido is actually a hormone issue, something most men don’t realize. Additionally, the most common reason for hormone induced libido issues is a lack of testosterone. This is where coconut oil comes into play.
No, coconut oil will not produce a reinvigorated libido with the wave of a magic wand. But, it sets the necessary chain reaction in motion in order to get that mojo working in your favor! Here’s what happens.
Fat is used to build our cell membranes and is the starting point for many hormones. It is the saturated fat that is critical to cell membrane structure and ultimately the health of the cell. A less than optimal structure will lead to a less than optimal cell and a less than optimal cell cannot function properly, if at all.
Hormones direct most of the body’s critical functions. Not enough fat, not enough hormone production. So, if you consume a healthy daily amount of coconut oil, its saturated fat and cholesterol open the gateway to increasing steroid hormones which in turn raises testosterone levels.
Low libido or not, plentiful levels of testosterone are critical to achieving erections.
Wait up – one more important piece of info. In one study, coconut oil was found to reduce oxidative stress in the testes of rats, resulting in significantly higher levels of testosterone. Reducing oxidative stress is a good thing period but if it gets those testosterone levels back on track, even better.
Interestingly enough, coconut oil isn’t the only part of the coconut that proves useful in aiding men with erectile dysfunction. Turns out, coconut water can also play a role.
Coconut water is rich with different electrolytes of magnesium, sodium & potassium. These electrolytes greatly increase the energy of the human body, enhance the muscle functionalities, and increase the blood flow in blood vessels. Daily consumption of a single glass of coconut water has been reported (in some men) to diminish the effects of erectile dysfunction.
Ok, so what if things really just aren’t going to happen in the erection department? Or maybe things are happening, but not on a consistent bases. There has to be a way to connect with your partner that brings you BOTH the physical enjoyment but also that ever-so-important deep emotional connection right? Well, there is. It’s called…
Melt is truly unique as far as I am concerned. The program offer couples a way to physically connect on a level that is hard to achieve in today’s world of overscheduling, time crunches, stress, and anxiety. It gives couples a way to create an atmosphere of true, pure romance which reignites and/or builds trust and connection without the pressure or expectation of “other things” happening.
I’m not saying “other things” are bad. But it helps to have a solid connection and romantic foundation with your partner in order for “other things” to A) happen in the first place and B) be truly be enjoyable for both persons. You’d be surprise what a positive shift can take place in a relationship when a physical need is being met in a very different way.
Melt is a program centered on massage for couples. Don’t go! Stay here. I know exactly what you are thinking because I thought it to.
I DON’T WANT TO GIVE MY PARTNER A MASSAGE.
Because after a busy day, it’s honestly quicker to just go handle some bedroom business and get on with the evening. Who wants to spend a half hour giving a massage? Receiving? Sure. But not giving.
Hand gets tired right? Boredom sets in. The to-do list is on replay in your brain and you get distracted from the task at hand. Partners complain. Things feel rushed, maybe tense. You know why this is? Because you are not at all, in any way, shape, or form doing couple’s massage the right way.
Melt grounds and centers your focus on your partner both in the giving and the receiving capacity. It allows you both to come to know each other on a different level, one that deepens trust and intimacy, one that strengthens your bond, one that reignites passion.
The techniques you will learn with Melt are EASY. Seriously. I was floored at how easy it is to “do” massage the right way. No tired hands. No boredom. No runaway thoughts.
The videos are very tasteful. I wouldn’t be at all embarrassed if my daughter watched one. In fact, if anything, it would give her a healthy view on intimacy between her parents. We are so ashamed of intimacy in our society and we guard intimacy with everything in us. I don’t believe it should be this way and Melt helps break down those walls that might be in place furthering connections for couples.
For those who struggle with erectile dysfunction, Melt is the IDEAL way to both give and receive the physical touch that humans crave but that might not be achieved in other ways. I assure you, it is possible for total and complete satisfaction to occur with only the Melt massage in play. Ahem. I will say no more.
Getting back on track here… I want to make sure to highlight the fact that Melt is not just about the massage… it’s also about:
a. Spending quality time together
b. Speaking to your partners love language
c. Learning something new
d. Sharing a new experience (getting out of the day to day routine)
e. Pause. Breathe. Connect.
I speak from experience when I say that Melt has played an important role in my marriage. It gave us a unique tool from which RastaDaddy and I were able to “squeeze in” a meaningful date night even when it seemed impossible to find the time. It gave us both the confidence and comfort level to physically care for each other. It relaxed us both tremendously which helped improve the way in which we communicated with each other. Tense conversations go nowhere. Relaxed conversations get results!
If you are interested in learning more about Melt, I suggest you visit their website and watch the sample videos. The program itself is in three parts which can be downloaded and played on any device. How convenient is that? The videos are filmed in short clips so you are not “stuck” watching hours and hours of instructional videos. Here is what you can expect:
The Basic Series
This series starts with correcting some of the most common massage mistakes and showing you the foundations of your massage with long, sweeping strokes. You watch the short videos with a technique or tip in each, and it ends with a 5 minute follow-along massage routine.
The Highlights Series
This is where things start to get really good! You learn to look for the sore spots on each other’s bodies and how to work them. The neck, shoulders, lower back, arms, head… you’ll find places you didn’t even know that were sore! After you learn the 9 techniques from this series, there’s a 15-minute massage routine to follow along to. Hands still don’t hurt!
The Deep Tissue Series
So many people, myself included, love Deep Tissue stuff but it shouldn’t by over-emphasized. Denis leaves these tips to the very end for good reason, but they are such good techniques. It ends with an epic 30-minute massage follow along massage routine.
I am over the moon to have this resource at my fingertips and know that I will be a lifelong user of the Melt techniques and practice. And for those of you with erectile dysfunction, I cannot speak more highly of this as an alternative to “other bedroom practices”.
