'Total Male: Save Your Life by Taking Charge of Your Sexual Health' is Released

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ Summer is usually a time for sports and recreation, parties, and other outdoor activities, but men feeling the effects of suboptimal sexual health may not look forward to this time of year. Depression, low energy, and other lingering health concerns can put a damper on anyone's enthusiasm. Cutting to the heart of this issue is a new book from medical wellness writing team Doug Ginter and Mark Weis, MD. "Total Male: Save Your Life by Taking Charge of Your Sexual Health" is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

"Total Male" reveals the intimate link between men's sexual health and overall wellness. For decades, the medical establishment has compartmentalized sexual functioning, disregarding the networked and dependent nature of all body systems. Ginter and Weis explain how sexual complications might be warning signs of more serious issues. On the other hand, a robust, active sex life can confer far-reaching health benefits, even prolonging life for some men.

As a first step to recovering one's physical and sexual wellbeing, the authors suggest that men ask themselves a few simple questions:

  • What is my energy level? Has it decreased recently?
  • Have I been feeling sicker or moodier?
  • How is my sex life?

"Total Male" offers encouragement to those who don't like their answers to these questions. More importantly, the book doesn't cut corners or cloud the issue with needless taboos. The authors believe that presenting anything less than the plain and simple truth would do a disservice to the millions of men who might benefit from the knowledge in "Total Male."

One of the most enduring myths in the men's health industry is that sexual health issues only crop up after about age 40, at the earliest. The facts tell a different story. Indeed, sexual performance issues like erectile dysfunction in younger men should set off alarm bells, as these can be indicators of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or cancer, among other problems. The good news is that nearly every one of these conditions is preventable, treatable, and curable.
