Understandably, men who have been contending with the symptoms of erectile dysfunction are skeptical about potential treatments, particularly when pills and other ED treatments haven’t worked for them in the past. But there are certain treatments that are scientifically proven to work, and some that are proven to be even more effective than traditional treatments that only treat the symptoms and not the underlying causes. One of those treatments is the Phoenix system.
Does the Phoenix System Actually Work for Erectile Dysfunction?
The Phoenix is a low-intensity acoustic shockwave therapy that is becoming an increasingly popular choice for those seeking regenerative medicine treatments for conditions such as erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, and even joint pain. This system is a non-invasive and non-surgical solution that addresses the underlying causes of ED and has proven to be more clinically efficient for treating ED than treatments such as Viagra.
But why is the Phoenix system so effective for ED? It has to do with the Three Pillars of Sexual Wellness.
Three Pillars of Sexual Wellness
At Novus, we believe that all men can benefit from optimizing the Three Pillars of Sexual Wellness, which addresses the top three elements that contribute to optimal sexual health, wellness, and performance. Depending on the man, one pillar may be more responsible for ED than others – but that’s okay. We can help you identify the pillar or pillars contributing the most to your ED and help you optimize your sexual wellness from the bottom up.
Pillar One: Plumbing
The first pillar has to do with your physiology: specifically, your cardiovascular system. Basic anatomy tells us that the ability to develop and sustain an erection is dependent on the health of the veins and tissues in the penis. From this, we can deduce that issues with the cardiovascular system can make it more difficult to have an erection.
What Cardiovascular Issues Cause ED?
There are a couple of cardiovascular issues in particular that contribute to ED. For example, small or thinning veins, plaque build-up, and low blood pressure are all potential root causes for ED. These are conditions that can interfere with blood traveling to the tissues of the penis, which will directly affect your ability to have an erection.
How to Fix This Pillar
The best way to fix this pillar is by addressing the underlying cardiovascular condition. For example, if there is plaque in your veins that is blocking the full flow of blood, then low-intensity shockwave therapy can help break this plaque up and return normal healthy blood flow to the veins in the penis. Likewise, treatments such as the P-shot will help revitalize the tissues and blood flow in the penis, which will make it physiologically much easier to have an erection.
How Many Treatments With The Phoenix System Will You Need?
The number of treatments you will need depends on your unique plumbing and the severity of your ED. For some men, as many as six to 12 treatments are necessary for significant and sustained results; for others, changes can be detected in as little as one to two treatments.
Will You Need to Change Your Lifestyle?
For some men, it can be easier to get the results you want from low-intensity acoustic shockwave therapy when you make certain lifestyle changes. Drinking less alcohol, smoking less tobacco, and losing weight can all help improve your cardiovascular health and make shockwave therapy more effective.
Pillar Two: Chemistry
The second pillar of your sexual wellness is your chemistry, or your hormones. Yes, even men are subject to the whims of their hormones. Most notably, the onset of andropause is when most hormonal changes in men occur, specifically, the decline in the production of testosterone, which can affect the behavior of your blood vessels and tissues.
When Do Men Experience Hormone Changes?
Men tend to experience a drop of 1% of testosterone production every year after the onset of andropause, which is around age 40. Although the first symptoms may be subtle, many men begin to notice symptoms such as ED, low libido, mood swings, loss of muscle mass, and weight gain during this time.
How to Fix This Pillar
Ideally, this pillar can be fixed by visiting a hormone specialist to help you balance your hormones. Bio-identical hormone therapy with testosterone pellets is usually a good option for men who want to balance their hormones and correct the symptoms of ED. Undergoing hormone treatment can also make your other treatments for ED, if any, more effective.
Pillar Three: Brain
The third pillar is all about your brain signal, which is encapsulated in one of the most disheartening symptoms of erectile dysfunction: low libido. The loss of interest in sexual activity is a common reason for many men to experience ED. Dysfuncitioning brain signals between your hormones and the nerves in your body can make it impossible to feel any interest in sex or gain an erection.
What Brain Signals Do You Need to Know About?
In particular, the brain signals associated with your mental health are most likely responsible for the other symptoms of your ED. Both depression and anxiety can make it more difficult to have an erection, and in the case of anxiety, this trouble can become cyclical and harder to treat with only medication.
How to Fix This Pillar?
The best way to fix this pillar is to visit a specialist that can help you remaster your brain-body connection. Sex therapists can help you learn how to cope with depression and anxiety that is interfering with having a healthy sex life.
For some men, more than one pillar is responsible for their ED, and that means it will probably take a combination of therapies to truly address every cause and restore sexual wellness. This can mean that you use low-intensity acoustic shockwaves to correct your plumbing, undergo hormone balance therapy, and visit a sex therapist to address each of the unique root causes of your ED and correct your ED for good.

Can Anyone Use the Phoenix for Erectile Dysfunction?
When it comes to erectile dysfunction, the biggest myth is that it’s a byproduct of getting old and you cannot avoid such a condition. The truth is that ED is usually caused by a reduction of blood flow due to hardened deposits in your blood vessels, which can be reversed. There are various treatments available, such as shockwave therapy, medications, or PRP injections. One of the most effective therapies is the Phoenix, a device you can use at home.
This device uses acoustic wave therapy (AWT) that sends high-frequency, low-intensity sound waves to your penis. The sound waves break apart any hardened plaque that is preventing blood flow to your tissues. Unlike traditional AWT treatments, this one requires no office visits, no expensive co-pays, or taking hours off work. For a one-time cost, you can perform your treatments at home, each lasting only 20 minutes and requiring no downtime.
Who Can Use the Phoenix for Erectile Dysfunction?
The device is FDA-approved, safe, and painless. It can also be used to treat penis curvatures. Any man in good health who is experiencing mild to severe ED and does not want to use expensive pills or painful needles can use this device. Over 40 clinical studies have proven the efficiency of this technology, which has left 93% of men satisfied with the results.
With that being said, there are a few considerations as to who is the right candidate for this kind of treatment. Before settling on this treatment, it is vital to understand the root causes of ED. There are three pillars to your sexual wellness, all of which must be optimized to prevent low sexual performance. If you want to get the best results for your investment, you can optimize the following pillars to easily achieve a better erection at any age with at-home AWT.
Pillar #1: Internal Plumbing
The first pillar is your cardiovascular system, which acts as your internal “plumbing” to provide blood flow to your tissue. Factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, or plaque build-up can lead to smaller or ruptured vessels, which can cause a decrease in blood flow to your genital region.
You can control this pillar by using acoustic wave therapy to break up any plaque build-up that prevents adequate blood flow to the blood vessels located in your penis. These waves also stimulate your body’s natural healing process to form new healthy blood cells, further improving blood flow for optimal performance.
What Will This Not Work On?
If you are suffering from hormone imbalances, high blood pressure, diabetes, or side effects of being overweight, you won’t see immediate results using wave therapy. Such factors will also require changes to your diet and lifestyle before you can experience the effectiveness of wave technology.
Pillar #2: Hormonal Chemistry
The second pillar is your hormonal chemistry. As you age, the number of hormones in your body will begin to decline, which can have detrimental impacts on your blood vessels and tissues.
If a hormonal imbalance causes your ED, you can experience the best results by combining acoustic wave therapy with the P-Shot or stem cell exosome P-Shot with hormone balancing, both of which are offered in our office.
Pillar #3: Nerve Signals From Your Brain
The third pillar is your brain, which carries nerve signals to your penis. Conditions such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder can prevent your nerve signals from communicating with your genitals, which may be a contributing cause of ED.
If you are experiencing any of these conditions in conjunction with poor performance in the bedroom, you should see a sex therapist before trying any AWT therapy or treatment.
Treating Root Causes vs Symptoms
By treating the root cause of ED rather than the symptoms, you may never need to rely on prescription medications again. Such pills only act as a “band-aid” treatment, treating only surface symptoms. AWT therapy works to regenerate your blood vessels, which can leave you with longer-lasting results. Depending on your health, most users begin to see positive results after a few treatments and can expect to see improvements for up to three months.
The device itself delivers optimal results for up to one million pulses, which amounts to about 70 treatments. After 65 to 70 treatments, it is best to replace your device since its internal components can wear down and leave you with diminishing results. If you wish, you can even continue to take pills while using this device, as long as we determine it is medically safe to do so.
Achieving the Best Results
When you follow exactly what we recommend here at The Novus Center, you can expect to see great results with handheld AWT. Patients who do not follow our recommendations completely will typically not get the results they desire. By seeking out a medical specialist who also specializes in hormones, anti-aging, and regenerative medicine, however, you can ensure that you properly balance your hormones so you can take the next step in treating ED.
When using an at-home AWT device, you can expect to achieve optimal results by performing two to three treatments twice a week for six to twelve weeks. You can continue to be sexually active while using the device and should work to maintain a healthy diet, exercise, and body mass alongside undergoing hormone-balancing treatments.
Get the Help You Need
As long as you are in good physical and emotional health with balanced hormones and a healthy lifestyle, you can benefit from using an at-home acoustic wave therapy device to enhance your sex life. Using a medical-grade vacuum pump and stainless steel tip, you can enjoy a gentle and precisely calibrated experience.
