(More on) Natural Boner Killers

I truly, truly thank you all for the well-wishes. You all lift my spirits. The body abilities return - a little less with each major bout, but they do return. I find it just takes a little more concentration. Sort of like trying to maintain a boner when the cock doesn't quite want to cooperate. :-)

And, we've all experienced that once in a while, whether it's due to being overtired, or having a bit too much to drink. Of course, if it persists...then it's time to figure out why.

I've gotten some really good input from a couple of Faithful Readers on the issue of the imbalance of hormones which, if too far off kilter, can kill our boners.

"Well you've inspired me to read more on the subject as its something I'd not considered at all. And some of the literature is telling me that too low levels of estrogen can contribute to the possibility of vascular disease, loss of bone density and cognitive function. That men should maintain a level of estrogen above 20pg/mL but below 30pg/mL. Shall keep reading, and probably get a test next time I do bloods. Thanks again for a very interesting and well-put-together blog."

And this:

"Estrogen is the original sex hormone that appeared in the plant world to enable sexual reproduction.  There was no need for testosterone for plants.  In the evolution of animals, testosterone was produced in the bodies of males from estrogen.  The body also produces estrogen by itself.  Without estrogen there is no testosterone, but there is a natural balance between the two that changes throughout the lifespan. 

The plant estrogens from food can create an imbalance between estrogen and testosterone, but you will not find a plant that can boost testosterone.  If the cruciferous plants, such as broccoli and cauliflower can cause more estrogen than testosterone to be excreted, that is probably a good thing.  But one does not want to take this too far."

Both contain very good, important information. Hormonal balance is required. Without it, we can lose that which we value so much.

I have been really buzy, but I stop to make a comment because it is my way of letting you know that I am thinking of you, and that I care by wishing you a wondrous day, mon chéri and my dearest Jean, and by sending you my many many slow, sensuous, and most loving bisous.

So pleased that you are feeling better! Another great post: both information and images! It is interesting that I have good testosterone levels (yes! even at 82) but the second prostate surgery has caused the inability to get a proper erection. It is somewhat frustrating!

None of your faithful readers want you to feel pressure to meet a deadline. The sun will still shine and the photos will be missed along with your instructions in life. We are all patient and happy to hear you say you're feeling better.

I remember watching a program years ago about a 9/11 survivor's story and I never forgot what he said, "Now, I think a good day is not having a plane run into your building." I have that tacked onto my computer to put everything in perspective.

Glad you're on the mend. Great wood pix!

@ Jean - I think I'll type up that quote and tape it to my desk. Hugs and bisous!

@ LP - The day when they find a successful treatment for a damaged prostate will be glorious. Men need the ability. Yes, we can survive without getting proper boners, and we eventually learn to live without them. But, we never feel "quite the same" any longer. As my disease slowly takes away my ability to get rock hard it is somewhat depressing. On those rare mornings that my cock reaches for the sky it is indeed a glorious day.

@ MFP - Mon cheri, I would worry if I didn't hear from you in some manner - either by comment to a post or an email - within a few day's time. Bisous!
