Is Low Libido Keeping You Down? Douglas Ginter's New Book "Total Male" Suggests Waning Sexual Health Can Wreak Havoc on Overall Wellness, Cause Serious, Long-term Health Problems

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Men's health professional and author Douglas Ginter believes that sexual function is a reliable barometer of overall health, a connection that's too often overlooked. "Total Male: Save Your Life by Taking Charge of Your Sexual Health," co-written with Mark Weis, MD, explains in layman's terms how men's sexual health issues can degrade quality of life, endanger overall health and wellness, and damage lives and relationships. "Total Male" is currently available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

"Many of today's biggest public health crises can be correlated to a decline in sexual health and functioning. This is especially the case with men," explained Ginter. "Therefore, when treating a specific disease like diabetes, it's important that doctors think about their patients' sexual health at the same time. The analogy of the human body as an machine is misleading; all of the body's remarkable functions, including sex, are tied together in an intricate delicate web."

Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes top the list of the most widespread and worrisome diseases facing America today—diseases that are, in many cases, preventable. Even when not preventable, effective treatment is possible when these maladies are recognized early enough. That's where being in touch with one's body becomes so important. In "Total Male," Ginter explains how research points toward sexual dysfunction as an early warning sign of many of these diseases.

Erectile dysfunction is the most common sexual health issue that older and sometimes even younger men bring up with their doctors. Some still believe that ED is an inevitable part of growing old, but that's simply not true. Similarly, it's a misconception to think of ED as a discrete, isolated problem, when in fact the condition is nearly always a symptom of a larger, systemic issue. Depression, substance abuse, obesity, and heart disease can all result in difficulty becoming or staying erect.

A healthy, fulfilling sex life can in turn confer a whole host of health benefits, from boosting the immune system to balancing hormones. Some studies even show a lowered risk of prostate cancer among men with robust sex lives. In effect, the street goes both ways: whereas sexual health issues can be symptomatic of disease, an active sex life can be part of a preventative plan that includes exercise, a nutritious diet, less stress, and plenty of rest.

Putting Ginter's philosophy to work is the Total Male clinic (http://www.totalmale.com) in San Jose, which provides individualized care for a whole host of men's sexual health issues. The team at the clinic boasts more than two decades of combined experience diagnosing and treating everything from erectile dysfunction to hair loss.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
