Treatment of impotency by
Introduction here is mostly about the
treatment of male sexual disorders, such as impotency, premature
ejaculation, nocturnal emission, lower number and lower quality
of sperm, by the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We
normally use Chinese herbal therapy and/or acupuncture treatment
to solve these problems.
Treatment of impotency
There are good way by the conventional
medicine to treat the impotency. It is the well-known Viagra.
People who have used the Viagra know well that the Viagra works
when you use it, and if you stop to use it, the impotency is
still there. Apparently it does not really solve the disorder of
impotency, though it is better than nothing can be done.
Chinese medicine is one of the powerful
alternative remedies to solve the impotency. However it needs
the TCM diagnosis for each person with impotency. It does not
mean that every person with impotency can take the same herbs
for the treatment.
the person is weak in physical condition, easy to feel tired and
has desire to lie down for nap, fears cold, and if his pulse
feels deep and weak, we use Ma Huang Fu Zi Xi Xing Tang. To the
formula, add large dose of herb Yin Yang Huo.
If the person feels cold in hands and feet,
but likes to drink cold water (by sip only), has discomfort in
stomach from time to time, even has constipation or acne, we use
Si Ni San, Mei He Si Ni San or Gui
Qi Si Ni San.
If the impotency happened after the person
felt scared when he had sex or masturbation, or after being
complained, laughed at by sexual partner before, and
he felt nervous and worry
failed whenever he has sex again now,
we use Chai Hu Long Gu Mu Li Tang. The person who needs
the Chai Hu Long Gu Mu Li Tang usually feels pressure or
tightness on the chest, easy to feel anxiety or scared, worries
too much and for too many things, tends to have doubt to
everything, feels hard to accept things the he or she cannot
understand. Such person tends to have alopecia areata (spot of
If the person has impotency, premature
ejaculation, nocturnal emission, fails to meet his sexual
desire, sour and weak on the lower back or on the knees, cold
feeling on the penis, use herbal formula Gui Zhi Long Gu Mu Li
Tang or Tian Xiong San. This group of patient usually is slim,
easy to have sweat, inner personality, hard and shy to express
feelings, has secret loves and masturbation. They also tend to
have hair loss (on the head, eyebrow or pubic hair). To this
formula, add large dose of herb Gou Qi Zi.
If the person is with obesity, easy to have
short of breath and sweat, use herbal formula Bu Zhong Yi Qi
Tang plus herb Hong Shen.
Some person is a wet-hot body constitution.
Their face looks yellow-red, tongue is fresh red, mouth lip is
red outside but dark inside, strong odor from mouth, pain in the
teeth, constipation, heavy body odor, more acne on the back,
more strong odor and sweet from feet, wet in the pubic area,
hair loss (with more oily in the hair), even with chilly feeling
in summer season, tends to lie down, to have heavy snooze. For
such person, use Yue Bi Jia Zhu Tang, or Cang Zhu Bai Hu Tang,
or Er Miao Wan, San Ren Tang, or Fang Feng Tong Shen San.
If the person is old age, more than 55
years of old, feels sour and weak on the lower back and on the
knee, soft and weak in the lower abdomen, and if the urine is
slow and difficult or is with prostate enlargement, dislikes
cold, has hair loss (evenly distributed loss and dry hair), use
herbal formula Jin Kui Shen Qi Wan. If such person has swelling
around ankles or in eye lids, use herbal formula Zhen Wu Tang.
If it is really difficult to make a TCM
diagnosis, try the herbal formula Jiang Xiong Jian, the
ingredients of which are:
Hai Piao Xiao 30 grams, Long Gu 30 g, Mu Li
30 g, Ding Xiang 5 g, Lu Jiao Shuang 15 g, Yang Qi Shi 15 g, Niu
Xi 10 g, Jiu Chai Seed 10 g, and Liu Huang powder 1 g.
Generally speaking, the healing effects of
the Traditional Chinese medicine is pretty good. However, it
takes time. You cannot expect it works as quick as a Viagra. It
needs about one to two months of the continuous herbal therapy.
During the herbal therapy, it is important to stop any sexual
activities, including the sexual stimulation from TV, film or
any reading material.
Usually, it takes short time for young
people but longer for elderly. It is a nature law that with the
age, the sexual ability would be reduced. Therefore, for older
person, you should not expect fast improvement as a younger
The overall cost for the herbal therapy
alone is about $ 500 per month.
The herbs can be cooked as herbal decoction
to drink and let the herbs work inside of the body. Herbs can
also be applied externally on to the naval. For example, we can
prepare the powder form of fennel and dry ginger (equal amount,
mixed with little cooking salt, and little breast milk, or
honey). Make the mixture into paste form and apply it on to the
naval. Seal it with medial tape and keep it for 5 to 7 days.
Repeat the procedure for one month.
Acupuncture is also used for the treatment
of male sexual disorders. The commonly used acupuncture spots
are Yin Jiao, Guan Yuan, Shen Shu, Gan Shu, Nei Guan, Shen Men,
San Yin Jiao, Tai Chong, Tai Xi and so on. Acupuncture needs to
be performed once every two to three days (better to have it
every day). It also needs two to three months. The cost for the
acupuncture alone is $ 87 each time, or about $ 700 per month.
If the person scares the acupuncture needle
and dislikes the bitter taste of the herbal decoction, he an
also try the moxibustion therapy. It is to burn a pile of a kind
of herb, put onto the acupuncture points (not touch), so as to
stimulate the acupuncture points by the warm. It is a good
If you really have no time even for the
moxibustion, you can eat some special diet for to improve the
sexual ability. It is to prepare 250 grams of shrimp, one
chicken egg white, 5 grams of starch and little amount of
cooking salt, and 30 ml of cooking soup and some amount of pig
Mix the shrimp, egg white, starch well. Bring a pot to hot, add
pig oil to warm, add the shrimp mixture in to fry, stir lose the
shrimp, pour it in a leaking spoon to remove extra oil. Bring
another pot on fire, add vegetable oil 10 ml to warm, add the
shrimp in again to fry, add cooking wine, the white soup,
gourmet powder. Cook to boiling, add some pepper powder. It is
ready to eat. Note, the amount of shrimp should be a large
amount. Little amount of shrimp do nothing to you.
The way to treat the premature ejaculation,
nocturnal emission, low number and low quality of sperm is the
same as to treat the impotency.
