How to get rid of erectile disfunction and improve your quality of life
Posted by Jameson Jameson, an American-born pastor, author and TV evangelist, says he has had to adapt his lifestyle to cope with erectile difficulties.
Mr Jameson said he was diagnosed with ED in the mid-2000s.
“The first few months were pretty bad, but after about a year or two I just realised I needed to get to grips with the symptoms and get better,” he said.
“I went on a mission and prayed for God to bring me out of this darkness.”
He became one of Australia’s leading evangelical pastors in 2011 and is the founder of his own organisation called Christ’s Kingdom Church.
Mr David said he felt like he was missing out on the spiritual life.
“My wife and I have been together for 20 years and I’ve been married for 14 years,” he told 7.30.
“For the first two years, I had a very different relationship with God and a different relationship in life.
But I’ve now realised that the key to being a good Christian is being honest about your life.”
Mr David’s wife and three children were all diagnosed with the disease but the husband is now committed to helping other couples overcome their ED issues.
“It’s a huge thing, for me personally, to have a husband who is able to tell me what’s wrong with my wife and what’s not right with my life and then I can tell my family,” he explained.
“And it’s a real gift.
It gives me a much more powerful relationship with my family, and it gives me the confidence to ask God for help.”
Mr Jamesons first wife, Rebecca, died in 2003 and he has since been married four more times.
“One of the biggest things for me was the fact that I had two different relationships,” he added.
“So my wife had been diagnosed with dementia, and she died in the hospital and my first wife was a lot younger, but she was also living alone.”‘
I was so close to it’While he is not alone in his experience, Mr David said the ED community was “so big” and his work helped “create a bridge” between those who struggle with their condition and the wider community.
“This is a community that I feel very strongly about,” he reflected.
“We all have the same journey, we all have our own personal journey, and I think we all need a little bit of the support of those around us to be able to navigate our journey.”
Mr John said he struggled to find a place in the church community where he could get a seat at the table.
“In church I feel like I’m so close, but I feel really alone,” he admitted.
“As an evangelical minister I’m trying to give back to the church, to be an advocate, to help the church get better and better.”
He also found himself in a unique position, because he was one of the first to get the diagnosis and was the one to personally meet and work with the people who were suffering.
“Being so close is a very good thing, but it’s not the only thing that I have to worry about,” Mr John said.
