As practitioners of holistic and traditional Chinese medicine we know that when it comes to erectile dysfunction, male infertility, low sperm count and other problems men often face there is a strong connection between sexual, physical, and mental health. By treating the whole person it is often possible for men to enjoy better sexual health!
Stress, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalance, diabetes, nerve damage – the list of things that can impact men’s sexual health goes on and on. This is why it’s vital to look at the entire picture rather than focusing on a specific area or system in the body. Physical health impacts mental health, mental health impacts physical health, and both impact sexual health. This is true of both men and women.
While most men experience some type of sexual dysfunction at some point in their lives, the fact is these issues can actually be a precursor to other medical conditions that may be serious such as diabetes, stroke, heart or other conditions connected to blood flow and circulation. If you experience erectile dysfunction, low libido or premature ejaculation, it’s important to address these issues as it could lower your risk of more serious health conditions in the future.
Acupuncture is a tool used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, one that can have a significant impact on men’s sexual health. The kidneys are key to proper sexual function; an imbalance can result in low libido, loss of energy, and reduced sexual stamina. Acupuncture has been shown to improve sperm quality, increase quantity and motility and more while enhancing sexual desire and stamina. Regular treatments are also effective for men who experience ED, or erectile dysfunction.
We already mentioned that stress, anxiety and other issues can impact a man’s sexual health. Acupuncture also works to promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and address many health conditions as it supports general good health and overall well-being. When your physical and mental health are in harmony it makes for better sexual health as well.
Herbal medicine, nutrition therapy, lifestyle changes, acupuncture and other components of holistic medicine have been proven time and time again to promote men’s sexual health. In addition, it is also important to consult with a urologist who can examine you for underlying conditions.
