Acupuncture Can Help Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects over half of the male population between the ages of 40 and 70. According to BioMed Research International, by the year 2025, there will be more than 320 million cases globally. If you are affected by this condition, defined as the inability to achieve and maintain an erection at least 25% of the time, you are not alone. The unfortunate side effects of living with this condition include insecurity, deterioration of relationships, depression, and embarrassment.

Pharmaceutical companies would like men with this condition to think that oral medications are the only effective solutions for erectile dysfunction. The truth is they do not work for everyone, and they can have several serious side effects. Although some of the more common side effects are minor, such as a stuffy nose and flu-like symptoms, there are more severe side effects, such as high blood pressure, chronic heart failure, and vision and hearing loss.

Most men with ED do not realize that there are natural treatments for this condition, and acupuncture is one of the most effective. In general, acupuncture works by stimulating nerves, releasing hormones, increasing blood circulation, and helping regulate blood sugar, among many other advantages. This practice is performed by placing hair-thin needles along specific energy meridians in the body to stimulate Qi (pronounced chee), overall energy flow. Blocked energy is generally the cause of ED and other unhealthy conditions.

The Treatment – How it Works

  1. Initial Conversation with Your Acupuncture Practitioner: Like with any health treatment, you will begin the process with your practitioner by voicing your ED issues and any other health concerns. It is not the time to be shy or embarrassed – open up and provide an honest interchange. The acupuncturist will determine how many treatments you will require and discuss the overall treatment plan, which may also include traditional Chinese medicine, to support the healing.
  2. Relax on the Table:  You will be asked to lay down on the practitioner’s table and encouraged to relax completely. The acupuncturist will place the tiny needles along the ears, hands, legs, and abdomen to stimulate specific energy meridians. NOTE: the needles will not be placed on your penis – so do not worry! You will lie with the needles in place for approximately 20 minutes.
  3. End of Session: The needles will be removed, and at that time, you will discuss your reaction to the treatment. Most people feel either ultra-relaxed or super energized. There are no side effects from these treatments, so proceed with confidence, knowing your ED is being treated in the most gentle, loving, and respectful way.
