◉ Eat a balanced diet that is rich in fruit and vegetables and low in fat and red meat.
◉ Drink alcohol in moderation. If you use illegal drugs, bear in mind that these can also cause impotence.
◉ Aim to reduce stress in your life by looking at the balance between your work and home/leisure time. You may find relaxation techniques are helpful.
