Any man can do this to have more sex and more happiness…
These older Japanese men are the happiest men in the world – here’s why
While young people in Japan are struggling and not having sex…these older men are doing it MORE than any other men on the planet.
It’s being called the “Quiet Revolution” because almost no one is talking about it.
But now there’s a video revealing everything – including the weird sex practice these older Japanese men are doing to keep having so much sex.
What doctors never tell men about anti-depressants
Depressed and anxious men have less sex.
And I want to explore a startling finding today.
Let’s start with this idea: “Depression is caused by a chemical imbalance.”
As marketers started promoting the modern class of antidepressants (SSRIs), this was a common thing to hear anytime someone went on one of these treatments.
But I have my doubts about this particular “chemical imbalance” as the cause of depression…
Because it seems that more and more evidence is pointing toward internal inflammation of the brain as being a main driver of depression.
But that’s for another article.
The different theories about cause don’t mean that antidepressants don’t work.
At least in the short term, SSRIs do make a lot of people feel better.
However, if you take one of these drugs (such as Lexapro or Prozac) it’s important to understand exactly what they do to your body in the long term.
Especially because they can be addictive and cause long-term dependency – making them hard to quit.
According to Joseph Glenmullen, M.D., author of Prozac Backlash, this is a potential crisis.
“Thousands and thousands of people have tried to go off SSRIs, and their doctors have mistaken it for a relapse [into depression]…”
Dr. Glenmullen advocates therapy in addition to tapering off the medication in order to distinguish a relapse should one occur.
There are several nasty associations with long term-antidepressant use.
Here’s what the science says:
This one is new to me. Now, I’ve known for a long time that SSRIs – especially when used over the long term – can cause other health problems…
But the data that’s coming out now shows that they are also directly related to an increased risk for vascular heart disease (VHD).
“We found a 1.4-fold increase in the risk of VHD among current users of antidepressants.”
The longer the antidepressants were in use and the higher the does, the worse the chance of getting vascular heart disease.
So if you do get addicted to them, then your chances of developing heart disease go up.
How about that?
“Among current users, a dose-response association was observed in terms of the cumulative duration and the cumulative antidepressant dose.”
One of the challenges with side effects like this is that they’re hard to detect right away…
Because they’re usually subtle…until they’re not and you have major problems.
And by that point it’s too late to do much about it.
Sexual side effects
This is a well-known problem with SSRIs.
But it still bears mentioning because it’s incredibly common.
So many guys I work with who have ED or other sexual performance issues are taking antidepressants.
It’s much more common than you’d think.
“For many patients, SSRIs diminish sexual interest, desire, performance, satisfaction, or all four. In men, SSRIs can delay or inhibit ejaculation, and in women, delay or prevent orgasm.”
Then what often happens is the sexual performance issues cause more depression…
And that creates a need for higher doses of antidepressants…resulting in worse sexual side effects.
It can be a VERY nasty circle.
I mentioned this earlier, but withdrawal from antidepressants can be nasty for some people…
AND it can cause people to stay on antidepressants longer than they actually need to.
“Symptoms that may occur on suddenly stopping an SSRI include dizziness, loss of coordination, fatigue, tingling, burning, blurred vision, insomnia, and vivid dreams…”
“Less often, there may be nausea or diarrhea, flu-like symptoms, irritability, anxiety, and crying spells. ‘Discontinuation syndrome’ is a better description than ‘withdrawal reaction,’ a phrase associated with addiction. The syndrome is usually mild, but can be severe.”
Although most antidepressants can cause withdrawal symptoms, Paxil and Seroxat (paroxetine) are reported to be the worst for this type of withdrawal.
Increase in suicidal thoughts
Scientists don’t quite know why antidepressants can affect people (especially teenagers) this way – but they do.
In some people, antidepressants can make them MORE suicidal instead of less.
This is the exact opposite of what these drugs are supposed to do.
“The risk that antidepressants will incite violent or self-destructive actions is the subject of continuing controversy. In 2004, the FDA first initiated a Black Box Warning on SSRIs – its strongest available measure short of withdrawing a drug from the market.”
“The warning is still placed on package inserts for all antidepressants in common use. It mentions the risk of suicidal thoughts, hostility, and agitation in children, teens, and young adults.”
It’s such a serious risk that the warning is on every package of antidepressants.
The bottom line
Like most long-term types of medication, you should be asking your doctor questions before you start taking it.
It’s also a good idea to do your own research.
Because Big Pharma isn’t going to ever make it obvious. There’s too much money at stake for them.
If you want to go off antidepressants, make sure you work with your doctor on it rather than trying to quit cold turkey.
Then you may want to schedule sex with your wife or girlfriend – every day or every other day is an ideal schedule.
Nothing is better than sex to make a man feel more relaxed, more able to be a man, and more confident.
—-Important Message for Single Men—-
Here’s how single guys are using the sexual lens to get any girl they want
My new “sexual lens” method works in a strange and unusual way…
It harnesses the sexual energy that exists between a man and a woman…
And it weaponizes it in your favor – so girls are practically throwing themselves at you.
There’s nothing you even have to do… Just focus on the girl you want… And, in seconds, she’ll approach YOU.
