Masturbation, ejaculation of semen with the use of the hand, toy or any other means has over the years attracted major debates over whether or not it poses health threats to those involved or addicted to it. But modern medical research warns that this habit which is also known as "Self-Abuse" - even though has specific positive sides also has major health disadvantages especially to men.
In fact, Dr. Sayeed Ahmad in his book, Homeopathic Management of Male Sexual Disorders has warned that the addiction, if not properly checked had the potential of causing eternal damage to men. We explore seven health risks Dr. Sayeed Ahmad has attributed to the addiction of masturbation.
1. Continuous Headache And Backache
Masturbation and the stress placed on the genitals is feared to pose a great threat on the spine and brain causing severe migraines and backaches which doctors claim could transmute into a potential stroke.
2. Weak Nervous System
It has been argued that most, if not all men who frequently masturbate have the highest chance of suffering a nervous breakdown. In fact, most male patients suffering multiple sclerosis (a nervous system disease that affects the brain and spinal cord) have issues with masturbation addiction.
3. Heart Palpitations, Diseases
Dr Sayeed has argued that most young males and husbands suffering heart illnesses have bad histories of masturbation addiction. According to the Homeopathic surgeon, the heart remains the most affected organ of the body during masturbation as addicts are bent on pressuring blood vessels to pump much blood to the penis just so the sexual motif of the act is achieved. Constant masturbation, he argues, risks causing severe heart beats (palpitations) which causes weakness and subsequent black out should a heart attack occur.
4. Dizziness And Loss Of Memory
Tracking the reason(s) why most men who masturbate have issues with memory loss, it has been settled that the several release of antigens from the body and also the release of testosterone leaves the brain severely tired, worked out and subsequently weak.
As one places much stress on his genitals during masturbation, Dr Sayeed argue his genitals are under stressed to produce an outburst of semen, more than usual especially due to the rigorous artificial sexual pleasure gained in the process. A continuous addiction to masturbation, over the years, results in a weakened male genitalia and low sperm-count.
6. Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
Urinary tract infection is a bacterial infection of the urethra, ureters, kidneys, or bladder. An infection of the bladder, which is called cystitis, is the most common type of urinary tract infection. Urethritis, or infection of the urethra, is also very common, and may occur either on its own or in combination with cystitis. If a person has a urinary tract infection, they may experience a burning pain upon urination, and your urine may be bad smelling, dark, and/or even bloody. In males, the symptoms of local irritation caused by scratching, masturbating, or an injury to the area can often mimic those of a urinary tract infection.
