|What's the Best Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction?
There are many causes for erectile dysfunction, including psychological issues like stress, depression, or performance anxiety, nerve damage, circulatory issues, low testosterone, and prostate cancer. Because there are many causes, there's no single "best" treatment. The first step in dealing with ED is to see a doctor to determine the underlying cause.
Typical, medically proven treatments include:
You'll see many websites promoting herbal remedies. These are not approved by the FDA. Studies have shown that these products have very little effect, and can cause serious health problems.

|The Benefits of Waterfront Living
Waterfront living has always been a dream for many people.
Psychologists have found that living on a body of water has a calming effect. The water is constantly changing, with ripples and waves, which engages the senses. At the same time, the body of water itself is constant and unchanging, creating a sense of stability. You can forget the white-noice machine and let the gentle sounds of the water relax you and lull you to sleep at night!
A body of water also moderates weather. It generates breezes in the morning and the evening. It cools the air during the hottest part of the day, and warms it at night.
Waterfront living also offers lots of options for outdoor activity... swimming, boating, fishing, water-skiing, snorkeling, or simply jogging along the water. The waterfront is also home to a range of wildlife. Even in urban areas, you'll find a wide range of birds and other creatures that make their home along the shoreline.
There's even some evidence that living near water may have health benefits. The air near large bodies of water has a high concentration of phytoncides, which boost your immune system.
Many waterfront areas also have great entertainment districts. There's a lot of nightlife on the waterfront! And in urban areas, ferries and taxis can offer commuters an attractive alternative to crowded highways.
