Sexual Dysfunction in Men and Women

Sexual (Erectile) dysfunction affects almost all men at one time or another in their lives and affects more than 30 million Americans.  About 80% of erectile dysfunction goes unreported. Here’s one important reason: The biggest problem many people have with sex is talking about it.  Men you are not alone, about 43% of women in America suffer from some sort of female sexual dysfunction.  While Erectile Dysfunction in men has been extensively researched, very little has been completed on FSD other than psychological causes.  At Destiny Nirvana, Dr. Christopher Ham understands the hesitations of individuals to seek out treatment and has extensive knowledge and expertise in reversing many forms of sexual dysfunction for both men and women.
