What causes Erectile Dysfunction ED?
An erection requires a precise sequence of events, and if even one of the events is disrupted, erectile dysfunction ED can happen. The sequence includes nerve impulses in the brain, spinal column, and area around the penis, and response in erectile tissue muscles, fibrous tissues, veins, and arteries.
70% of erectile dysfunction ED is caused by damage to nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, and fibrous tissues, as a result of disease. (diabetes, kidney disease, alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, vascular disease, and neurologic disease).
35-50% of men with diabetes experience erectile dysfunction ED. Acupuncture has been proven effective for diabetes (World Health Organization). Acupuncture has the same effect on diabetes that the diabetes meds have. With acupuncture, the erectile dysfunction ED symptoms associated with diabetes will fade away with the diabetes symptoms.
Many common medicines can produce erectile dysfunction ED as a side effect (blood pressure drugs, antihistamines, antidepressants, tranquilizers, appetite suppressants, and ulcer drugs). Acupuncture will eliminate the need for the medicines by getting your body in balance, hence more no erectile dysfunction ED.
10-20% of erectile dysfunction ED is caused by stress, anxiety, guilt, depression, low self-esteem, and fear of sexual failure. Men with a physical cause for ED frequently experience similar psychological reactions (stress, anxiety, guilt, and depression). Acupuncture releases endorphins, the feel good chemicals in the body. Acupuncture is proven to relieve stress and balance emotions. Stress and frustration are liver system imbalance. Anxiety is a spleen system imbalance, fear is a kidney system imbalance, and grief is a lung system imbalance.
Smoking effects blood flow in veins and arteries, sometimes causing erectile dysfunction ED. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have been proven to increase circulation in the body. Acupuncture is used with good success to help people stop smoking, and is useful in treating the full range of addictions and addictive behavior. There are distinct proven stop smoking protocols that are proven and used extensively by the North American Detox Association, and the American College of Addictionology and Compulsive Disorders.
Insufficient testosterone could also be a cause of erectile dysfunction ED. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs regulate hormone levels and the endocrine system, thus bringing testosterone and other hormones back into balance to eliminate the symptoms of erectile dysfunction ED.
How is Erectile Dysfunction ED diagnosed?
Your medical history helps define the specific reasons for your erectile dysfunction ED, so your acupuncturist can get to the source and stop the mechanism that is making the erectile dysfunction ED happen. It discloses diseases that lead to erectile dysfunction ED, so your acupuncturist can get to work on balancing your body so it no longer operates in a disease state. Your acupuncturist will make a diagnosis based on your medical history and specific symptoms. Your diagnosis dictates which needle prescription to use to benefit your unique individual constitution.
Your acupuncturist will pay close attention to the drugs you are currently taking so as to balance your body so you don’t have as much need for those drugs. For example, if you need drugs for high blood pressure, your acupuncturist knows that she must balance your body to regulate blood pressure for example so you no longer have a need for blood pressure drugs that interfere with erection.
Erectile Dysfunction ED and Acupuncture: First Visit Expectations?
During your first office visit, your Acupuncturist will ask you about your health, lifestyle, behaviors, medical conditions and medications you are taking that may contribute to your ED. She will take your pulse and look at your tongue. You will remain clothed for your acupuncture session, raising your pant leg for leg needles, your sleeves for arm needles, and your shirt for abdominal needles. The relaxing music will allow you to rest for 30-50 minutes, and once the needles are out you will go on with your day with a renewed vigor and zest for life. Even if you fall into a deep sleep with the needles in, which most men do, you will probably have a deep sleep that evening as well and wake feeling rejuvenated the next day.
