Impotence: Causes and solutions

What is impotence?

Impotence or sexual dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection long enough to engage in sexual intercourse.Impotence is a very common problem with one in 10 men experiencing it.  Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have shown to be highly successful in treating this disorder by increasing circulation and promoting blood flow to the areas treated. Impotence and other male sexual disorders can lead to fertility problems.

When a couple is trying to conceive, it is important to consider men’s health.  Men sometimes receive a basic sperm analysis, but even when results are questionable, the condition is rarely addressed. Instead, there is a tendency to focus on female fertility factors only, but male fertility can be the problem or at least one of the elements conditioning the pregnancy. Acupuncture and botanical herbs, as well as dietary and life changes,  have been proven to improve sperm production and motility

Male sexual dysfunction is not only a condition to be considered when a couple is trying to conceive. It is also a problem for men on his daily life. Stress, insecurity, anxiety and other disorders can be developed and directly related with the frustration impotence creates. Western medicine does not offer a lot of alternatives, but strong medication with dangerous side effects. On the other hand, Chinese medicine uses acupuncture and herbal medicine to restore hormone balance, reduce the effects of emotional stress, kick-start the reproductive functions of the kidneys, and purge the body of toxins.

    This is very knowledgeable to men to be aware of how to treat the impotence and to know also if they are impotent.

    Men must also take care of themselves not because they are healthy outside means that they can already be strong inside. In conceiving a baby its not because you can have sex with your partner then you can already have a baby. I agree with this article that they must also consider men’s health after all.

    We should be aware of impotence because we don’t know if we are already infected by it.
