The Science of Stress - How is stressed linked to the body and can it be responsible for sexual dysfunctions like premature ejaculation?

Learn the solutions to this common problem: STRESS. Basically, stress is all the ups and downs of your life.

What Is Stress?

You might be surprised how much stress is running through your daily life. Stress is more than just the worry you have concerning work or school. Stress comprises all the surprises, joys, sorrows, and pain that you experience. However, stress is more than just the mental and emotional events you come across. Stress also includes all the physical wear and tear that you deal with.

Sexually, stress will cause a decreased enjoyment of pleasure, increased sensitivity to pain and stimulus, occasional impotence, and the constant occurrence of premature ejaculation.

Normally, stress is a good thing. It helps us concentrate on important tasks, urges us to do things, and creates a new perspective, while generally making life more interesting. After all, how exciting can life be if everyday held no surprises or challenges? It might be stress-free, but extremely boring.

Occasionally, a stressing event may push you past what you may be able to handle, such as being unable to sleep because of worry over a test or excitement of a trip the next day. The emotions caused by a breakup in your relationship or someone passing away can be extremely overwhelming. All of these are obvious.

But sometimes, constant and persistent everyday stressors can build and affect your body the same way a larger event can. Problems with work, relationships, and your life can pound away at you until you break.

How Does Stress Affect The Body and Sex?

Most of the time, our bodies are able to handle the routine stressors of life. Missed the bus? No problem, I’ll walk. Deadline coming up? I’ll focus and concentrate. Our bodies were designed to meet these challenges by stimulating the sympathetic nerves, as they:

  • Increase our heart rate to circulate more blood
  • Produce hormones and chemicals for concentration and thinking
  • Stimulate the body to produce more blood sugar and adrenalin thus providing more energy
  • Divert the blood from less vital areas (such as the digestion system and genitals) to arms and legs for strength
  • Increase breathing to provide more oxygen to the body

When it comes to sexual functioning and stress, the problem arises when your body is unable to keep up with all the demands put upon it. Our body has a certain threshold for stress.

Once it is surpassed, it will start to affect different parts of our bodies in negative ways.

Common problems with stress are difficulties with sleep, lack of energy, depression, mood swings, headaches, body pains, impaired immune system resistance, gastrointestinal complications, and of course anxiety.

How Stress and Anxiety Induce Early Ejaculation

Stress and stress-related anxiety induce all these problems by stimulating the sympathetic nerves and creating an imbalance of chemicals and hormones. The sympathetic nerves are responsible for a man’s urge to ejaculate.

Normally, this impulse is low and needs to be built up through sensory and mental stimulation until the orgasm is reached. In cases of stress, the sympathetic nerves have already been excited and overworked. Men will begin sex with a very strong impulse to ejaculate and of course climax far too soon.

To add to all the problems, stress wreaks havoc on chemical and hormone levels.

The most important of these are neurotransmitters. These substances are responsible for running the brain and sending its messages to all your organs, muscles, and tissues. By inhibiting its production, your parasympathetic nerves won’t be able to counteract and control the sympathetic nerves (the ones responsible for orgasm).

At all times, there is a constant struggle between the two. In a normal and healthy person, the parasympathetic impulses they receive from your brain are stronger than the sympathetic impulses. Stress causes early ejaculation by not only overexciting the sympathetic nerves, but also retarding and weakening the control of parasympathetic nerves. Exposure to a long-term stressful environment would make it even worse.

Ways To Eliminate Stress
  • Reduce the factors - The best way to cure premature ejaculation caused by stressed is simply by reducing and eliminating the causes of stress.
  • Take on a lighter workload from school or work - You may be pushing yourself too hard by taking on extra work or putting in more hours in a day. You need to find a healthy balance between work and play. If the daily demands are high and there isn’t a whole lot you can cut out, then perhaps a break from it all is what you need.
  • Take a vacation - A different perspective and a new environment may be what you need
  • Lighten your social engagements - Just because you’re not working, it doesn’t mean you’re not stressing. Yes, play gives much less stress than work and can even help to decrease work stress, but play is still another form of stress if you have too much of it.
  • Set your body clock - Your body clock is responsible for many important things like sleep, body temperature, and your production of many important chemicals including serotonin. By following a regular sleep schedule and getting enough sleep, your body will have a better chance to replenish its resources during sleep while providing you more energy and control when you’re awake.

The foods you eat have a lot to do with the amount of stress you are able to take. Eating more vegetables helps to increase your body’s natural production of serotonin by improving and promoting the absorption of the amino acid, tryptophan. (Synthetic L-Tryptophan is not recommended and may contain fatal side effects.) Red meats also contain natural tryptophan.

However, because of the high amount of other amino acids contained in meat, the absorption of L-Tryptophan is extremely low. Vegetables offer a much richer source for the amino acid.

Reduce, or better yet eliminate, caffeine and sugar from your diet. Most people supplement the natural energy they have by drinking coffee, soda, or eating sugary foods. These may have the temporary effect of giving that extra boost you’re craving for, but in the long run it will alter your own body’s ability to supply needed energy and deal with stress.

Carbohydrates are also extremely important in a diet, especially if you feel fatigued and rundown from your normal day. Instead of opting for caffeinated and sugared pick-me-ups, eating more complex carbohydrates – like cereal, rice, pasta, bread, and potatoes – takes the body longer to break down, which provides a steadier supply of energy over a longer period of time.

Herbal remedy

By far, an herbal supplement is your easiest and most effective choice to help your body deal with the physical elements of stress. By increasing the production of essential neurotransmitters, hormones, and increase liver's detoxification of stress hormones, the affects of stress can be diminished.

Peace of Mind Natural Calm Ejaculation Control Remedy consists of invigorating, holistic, and calming ingredients to help you control ejaculation better, reduce stress, and bring back peace of mind for you. Invigorating ingredients like Rhodiola, Schisandra, and Tribulus will provide the extra boost of energy you need to get through the day. Holistic herbs like Chrysanthemum and Dong Quai will help to heal the whole body to bring you back into balance. Calming herbs like Os Draconis, Chrysanthemum, Passion Flower, and Jujube Ziziphi will calm and relax your nerves to provide the extra control you’re looking for.

No Recreational drugs

Some people may use alcohol to suppress the anxiety and stress of a long day. Or, they may use tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and amphetamines to give them that extra boost.

These methods might work and are sometimes very potent, but the dangers of altering your body chemistry and creating an addiction will far surpass any benefits you may receive. In the long run, these will decrease your threshold for stress and ruin your ability to control ejaculation.

What If All Else Fails?

If you try all these solutions and still can’t alleviate stress yourself, be aware that it might be an early warning sign of some hidden illness. Problems with a thyroid disease, calcium imbalance, anemia, diabetes, bi-polar depression, liver disease, kidney malfunction, or the more common vitamin and hormone deficiency will all diminish your ability to handle stress and consequently increase premature ejaculation and other sexual dysfunctions.

Let your doctor be aware of the symptoms you are having. He may come across a problem you weren’t even aware of. Medication, herbal supplements, and counseling may be needed to help you deal with physical ailments and the unnecessary stress caused by it.
