Chinese medicine has been around for thousands of years and has valid, effective, and natural solutions for many medical conditions, including erectile dysfunction. When you’re sure your ED isn’t due to an underlying health problem, such as heart disease or sleep apnea, and you want to avoid drug therapy and all of its side effects, consider acupuncture and Chinese herbal supplements to correct your condition.
You may experience ED due to chronic stress, emotional issues, low testosterone, depression and anxiety, or an enlarged prostate. Chinese medicine can help in these instances. And, even if your ED is due to diabetes, high cholesterol, or a heart condition and you’re getting appropriate treatment, Chinese medicine practices — such as acupuncture — provide an adjunct solution to ED.
Why consider an alternative to Western drug treatments?
Traditional Western drug treatments aren’t effective for all men who suffer from ED. Instead, in some cases, men suffer unpleasant side effects from these drug therapies. You may have upset stomach, chronic headaches, nasal congestion, urinary tract infections, dizziness, or diarrhea. In some cases, the medications can cause an erection that lasts more than four hours, which constitutes a medical emergency.
If you’re taking cardiac drugs, called nitrates, you’re not eligible for ED drugs because they could cause your blood pressure to drop too low. You may have to carefully calculate your dosage and interactions with other medications, such as alpha blockers, to avoid negative side effects.
The ancient Chinese medical practice of acupuncture uses fine needles to stimulate key points on your body and enhance your energy flow. Research shows that acupuncture can stimulate your body’s natural healing to overcome illnesses and dysfunction.
Acupuncture is safe and effective in helping many men correct imbalances that are affecting their ability to get or sustain an erection, especially when ED is due to stress, anxiety, or depression.
To treat erectile dysfunction, Dr. Men inserts the needles at just the right depth in specific meridians that affect your reproductive system. You may feel slight pressure or a dull ache, but no pain. A series of treatments is required for you to experience results.
We’ll put together a customized plan for you, but usually about 10 weeks (or more) of sessions can help improve your symptoms of ED.
Chinese herbal therapy
Research shows that many Chinese herbal supplements can improve erectile function. These herbs can activate nitric oxide synthase — helping the blood vessels in your penis dilate so you get an erection. The herbs may also elevate your testosterone levels, improve cellular communication, and reduce cellular stress.
We here at Integrated Oriental Medicine customize herbal mixes based on the underlying cause of your ED. We are focusing on three aspects of the erection:
- Checking the brain’s connections to the sex organs
- Strengthening the heart to ensure the motor energy of an erection
- Improving the hormones to ensure the reasons for an erection.
Our self-formulated herbal formula allows you to have unassisted erections once you finish the treatment plan. It succeeds because we treat the underlying disease, instead of the one-time effect of conventional approaches.
We here at Integrated Oriental Medicine want to help you live life to the fullest. Call the office or book an appointment using this website to learn how you can restore a healthy, robust sex life.
