Treating Erectile Dysfunction With Acupuncture
Erectile Dysfunction is a common occurrence in many men. Although it often
is not discussed openly, it is important for men to address their concerns
concerning impotence with their health care provider. Many men who suffer from
the condition are faced with feelings of low self-esteem, frustration, and
sometimes embarrassment. However, if you are dealing with ED,
it is important to address the problem openly so that you can find a resolution
or effective course of treatment. Speaking with your health care provider is the
first step to finding a treatment that will help you overcome the condition.
Your health care provider will begin by trying to locate the source of the
condition. There are many different causes of male dysfunction.
Some of the causes may be sickness and disease, while others may be a result of
emotional stress. Sometimes it is caused by stress and may increase as a man
becomes more anxious regarding his performance. This can form a cycle where
emotional stress manipulates the body and the ED continues.
Sometimes, the cause may be a prescription medication that has been prescribed
for an unrelated illness. Since there can be numerous causes, it is important to choose a method of treatment that specifically
addresses the underlying cause.
Some of the more common methods of treating Erectile Dysfunction include
using prescription medications or vacuum type appliances to help increase blood
flow to the penis. Although these are popular remedies, many people may find that
they are not desirable. Prescription medication comes with many side effects and
Many men do not look forward to using vacuum apparatus. One method that has
proved to be very beneficial in treating certain cases is Acupuncture.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese form of medicine that dates as
far back as the Stone Age and has proved very effective as a cure
for erectile dysfunction as it helps increase circulation, promote blood flow, and
restore vitality to the areas treated. It is important that if you are going to
choose this alternative way to treat your impotence that you choose a licensed
and certified provider to perform the treatment.
You may also find that the best results are obtained by using a combination
of methods. Be sure to consult with your health care practitioner
relating all of your courses of treatment as well as other options. You should
never begin a course of treatment without discussing all of your choices with
your health care practitioner. However, clinical research and studies have shown
that Acupuncture can be very effective at treating Erectile Dysfunction and is
a valid treatment to consider.
Additionally, you may also find that adding herbal
supplements to your diet helps strengthen your results. Herbal
work in conjunction with acupuncture and help stimulate blood flow to the pelvic
region. Again, it is important to let your health care practitioner know if you
are taking herbal supplements as well. With the counsel and advice of your
health care practitioner, you can find a viable solution that will effectively
treat your dysfunction.
