Biohacking Erectile Dysfunction: How to Get It Up at Any Age


I’ve talked about biohacking your sex life a couple of times before (for both men and women),  but I’ve never covered erectile dysfunction. 

It’s time to talk about it because ED is a lot more common than you might think. 

Society tells men that they are experiencing a rare, embarrassing problem when the reality is very different. Roughly 40% of men under 40 experience performance issues. After age 40, the odds get worse: ED impacts more than half of men. Most ED meds work pretty well, but you need a prescription for them, they come with side effects, and they only temporarily solve the problem.

The good news is that you can hack the root cause of erectile dysfunction and reverse it. Here’s a look at why ED happens, why it’s so common, and what you can do to get rid of it. 


Erectile Dysfunction is All About Blood Flow

Erections are about blood flow. If you don’t get enough blood going into the penis, you will not be able to achieve or maintain an erection. Most erectile dysfunction happens due to a lack of blood flow. 

The trouble is that as you age, penile blood flow usually decreases due to plaques. 

You’re already familiar with the concept of plaque collecting in coronary arteries. The plaque blocks and narrows the arteries, decreasing the flow of blood and leading to heart attacks and other cardiovascular issues.

It turns out that over time, plaque also collects in the blood vessels of the penis, restricting the blood flow you need for strong, spontaneous erections.

This is the leading cause of erectile dysfunction (ED) and is a big reason that more than 40% of men experience ED before their 40th birthday.

Prescription pills like Viagra and Cialis work by temporarily dilating the blood vessels in your penis, which increases blood flow for a few hours. However, they don’t address the root cause that’s decreasing blood flow, so when the pills wear off, the problem persists. In other words, ED pills are just a band-aid.


Acoustic Wave Therapy: Restore Blood Flow for Stronger Erections

In my research, I discovered that there is a treatment that actually addresses the underlying issue of blood flow. It’s called acoustic wave therapy and it works by delivering powerful, targeted sound waves to the penis via a hand-held device that travels along the surface of the skin. 

These waves travel through the penis, breaking up the plaque in blood vessels[*][*][*]. Destroying the plaque restores the blood flow you need for spontaneous erections — essentially turning back the clock on your penis (there’s a sentence I never thought I’d write). 


Acoustic Wave Therapy Grows New Blood Vessels

Acoustic wave therapy also causes microtrauma in the tissue of the penis. 

It’s minor enough that you won’t feel anything, but it stimulates your cells’ repair function — a process known as angiogenesis, which literally means: the growth of new blood vessels[*][*]. 

The calibrated sound waves delivered during acoustic wave therapy work in two powerful ways. They open up blockages in existing blood vessels, while also promoting the growth of new blood vessels. More blood flow equals bigger, firmer, more frequent erections.

Several long-term studies have found that acoustic wave treatment has no side effects and no downtime and that it works to reverse ED for more than 90% of men[*][*]. 


Downsides to Acoustic Wave Therapy (and How to Hack Them)

There are three main downsides to acoustic wave therapy: cost, proximity, and embarrassment.

Cost of In-Clinic Treatment

At a clinic, the average acoustic wave treatment costs $500 at a clinic.  Most men require 6-12 treatments to get better, and most clinics recommend that you repeat the series of treatments every six to twelve months. 

That cost adds up quickly, and most insurance companies will not cover the cost of acoustic wave treatments. Fixing your ED for good may costs you tens of thousands of dollars if you do it in a clinic. 

No Clinics Nearby

In many cases, the nearest clinic offering acoustic wave therapy could be hundreds of miles away. That could be a full day of travel, which means taking time off work. And since most clinics recommend 3 treatments per week, in-clinic treatments aren’t a realistic option for a lot of people. 

Taking Your Pants Off in Front of Strangers

Most guys don’t want to take their pants off in front of a medical doctor and then talk about performance issues. 

This frequently turns out to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Amazing treatment that solves a huge problem — but just too expensive, time-consuming, and awkward.


How to Do Acoustic Wave Therapy at Home

I recently talked to my friend Dr. Paul Thompson. He’s a world-renowned urologist with more than 30 years of experience treating erectile dysfunction. He’s also the chief medical officer at a medical device company called Launch Medical. 

Dr. Thompson revealed that his company, Launch Medical, has created The Phoenix, the first home-use acoustic wave device designed specifically for men’s sexual health. 

This thing is awesome. It’s an FDA-registered medical device that produces an energy signature that’s identical to the in-clinic devices. You can use it on your own terms, in the privacy of your own home. 

The smart guidance system walks you through every step, preventing over-treatment and earning The Phoenix multiple patents around the world.

It also costs less than 2 treatments at a clinic, and it is capable of delivering more than 65 treatments before you have to replace it. 

This means you can complete the multiple treatment protocols year after year to restore and maintain your bedroom performance. 

This is a game-changing new way to hack erectile dysfunction. I’m a big believer in any device that gives you the power to change your own biology, without a clinic visit or a doctor’s permission. That’s why I’ve partnered with Dr. Thompson to give my readers $200 off their purchase of The Phoenix. Just enter code DAVE at checkout for $200 off. 

If you struggle with ED, there’s no need to be embarrassed. It’s far more common than you’re led to believe, and it’s also easier than ever to fix. Give The Phoenix a try and start enhancing your erections — you’ll be surprised by how quickly it makes a difference.
