Alternative Medicine That Works for Regular Folks



Erectile Dysfunction and Chinese Medicine



In Oriental Medical theory yang qi is the most active, masculine, virile aspect of life that exists. The physical manifestation of healthy yang qi is the erection and erectile function. If the symptoms you experience are difficulty in getting and maintaining erection or premature ejaculation, nocturnal emission wet dreams) or spermatorrhea (dribbling of semen), Oriental medicine would focus their treatment on the yang or active qi function of the Kidneys. The use of the word Kidney here refers not to the Western anatomical kidneys, but the OM concept of the Kidney system.


There is always another side to the story - in traditional Chinese medicine, the yin aspect must be sufficient for adequate fertility, sperm production and quality. Difficulty with ejaculation, premature ejaculation, difficulty maintaining an erection, unusual sensations with ejaculation and infertility are among the symptoms one might experience if the yin aspect of the body is affected.
