Acupuncture is a natural alternative to treating erectile dysfunction in men of any age or medical condition.
Often other health conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, anxiety, or depression can contribute to erectile dysfunction. Many of these conditions can make it dangerous for men to take ED drugs. Additionally, erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra or Cialis are not effective for everyone, even if the person using them has no other health problems.
To understand why a natural approach to resolving erectile dysfunction may be the right solution for you, it’s important to comprehend how the Western approach to this condition works.
You may have heart or other health problems that prohibit adequate blood flow to your genitals. In traditional Chinese medicine, we look at the body holistically, unblocking stagnant Qi, no matter where it is in the body. In other words, stagnant Qi in your liver can block the flow of blood to your penis. When treating erectile dysfunction, we often address the liver as this channel wraps around the genitals. Additionally, when coupled with dietary changes and herbal remedies, you can solve many health complaints with acupuncture that were not being treated effectively with medication – including erectile dysfunction!
