In this episode of the Functional Medicine Podcast we present to you a detailed discussion of men's sexual health with our special guest Nurse Valerie Padd, certified sexual educator and coach. Sexual well-being is a part of the fabric of overall health. A vibrant sex life is your birthright, and yet it is very common for men to struggle with various sexual health concerns. These concerns may be devastating to the affected individuals. Yet, men's sexual issues are stigmatized and swept under the rug. Men are often embarrassed and even ashamed to discuss these issues and seek help. They are left to feel frustrated and inadequate, and are often forced to suffer in silence, not knowing where to turn for help.
In this episode of the Functional Medicine Podcast we unabashedly address these issues head on. We offer a range of practical solutions for our listeners, so that they can better understand men's sexual health concerns, and move forward toward a more fulfilling sex life.
Valerie Padd applies the "bio-psycho-social" model to a man's relationship with his own body, his mind, his partner, and the world around him. She then utilizes a functional and integrative approach to address these concerns. Men's sexual health is not just a personal matter; it's intertwined with societal expectations, spiritual beliefs, cultural norms, and the ever-evolving landscape of human relationships.
Societal pressures have historically placed unrealistic expectations on men. These expectations have only been exacerbated by the omnipresence of pornography in our society. By opening up a dialogue on men's sexual health, we aim to identify and dismantle the stereotypes that perpetuate shame, fear, and ignorance. Ms Padd exposes and confronts the myths surrounding men's sexual health, and she delves into a wide array of specific topics ranging from low desire, to erectile dysfunction.
In this podcast we hope to empower men with information to help them foster healthier connections with themselves and their partners.
