Raleigh Acupuncture Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
This video explains how acupuncture treats ED.
What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (a.k.a. ED) is a condition where men have difficulty getting or maintaining an erection. It is a common condition that occurs in men age 40 and older. There are Western medicines available to help men with erectile dysfunction, but these only treat the symptoms and you must keep using the medicines each time. However, acupuncture treatment for erectile dysfunction treats the root cause of the condition and helps to restore your body to it’s original state.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, as many as 52 percent of men experience erectile dysfunction, with it affecting 40 percent of men age 40, and 70 percent of men age 70. Men who have heart disease, diabetes and are taking certain medications have higher risks of experiencing erectile dysfunction.
How Acupuncture Helps
In Chinese medicine, all sexual function issues involve the Kidneys. However, when we talk about organ function in Chinese medicine, there is not always a direct correlation to the Western “anatomical” organs.
Chinese medicine was developed thousands of years ago based on observation of how the body works. So just because you have erectile dysfunction, and therefore a Kidney deficiency in Chinese medicine terms, there is probably nothing wrong with your actual kidneys.
That being said, if you have erectile dysfunction, there is clearly something wrong with your Chinese medicine Kidney function. And that is exactly what acupuncture is going to correct when you come in for treatment.
Why Some Men Have Kidney Weakness
Kidney function declines naturally with age. So if you have had normal sexual function your whole life, and in your late seventies you start having erectile dysfunction, that’s a normal result of the aging process.
However, if you are in your forties or fifties and start having erectile dysfunction, this decline in Kidney function is not normal, and intervention is appropriate. There are three primary reasons why this happens.
The first reason is stress. If you have experienced a traumatic event or if you live with a very high level of stress on a daily basis, it can often result in damage to your Kidney function. Stress literally depletes your organ function. In these cases, acupuncture for erectile dysfunction addresses both the stress function in your body along with strengthening your Kidney function.
When we treat for stress, our focus is not to necessarily reduce your stress levels. We have no control over those since they come from the people and situations all around you. However, we can address how your body responds to stress, making you better able to handle stress without it taking a toll on your body. At the same time we need to strengthen your Kidney function to reverse the damage that has occurred. The result is improvement in your erectile dysfunction.
The second reason for erectile dysfunction is constitutional. If you inherited weaker Kidney function from your parents then you may have naturally weaker Kidney function yourself. Inherited organ function in Chinese medicine is similar to inherited DNA is Western medical terms. In this case, acupuncture for erectile dysfunction will focus on tuning up your Kidney function. While we cannot change your DNA, we can influence the Kidney function that is sustained on a day to day basis. All organ function is based on what we originally inherited, plus our daily maintenance. Diet, exercise and acupuncture can all help to maximize Kidney function.
Burning Candle At Both Ends
The third common reason for erectile dysfunction is if the patient used excessive drugs or alcohol when they were in their twenties and thirties. This behavior has a tendency to rapidly deplete Kidney essence, the part of Kidney function that was inherited from our parents. It’s like burning the candle at both ends, where the candle gets used up faster. This situation is more difficult to treat than the first two, as the damage done to the kidneys is deeper. However, there are cases in these situations were some sexual function can be restored.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m 56 years old, a recent new dad. So I was surprised when I started having trouble with ED. When I mentioned it to my acupuncturist he said it could be treated with acupuncture. I let him go at it. He asked if I was getting less sleep with the new baby. I said, like hardly no sleep for the past 12 months. He asked if my hair was getting grayer recently. I said, just look and see for yourself. He said my sudden ED was from the stress on my body from lack of sleep and still having to work my full time job, and all the other things associated with having a new baby. My 56 year old body was not cut out to take this on without giving me a little trouble!
So he treated me to make my kidneys stronger, and it really worked. My ED slowly improved over the next three months. I felt stronger too. I’m very grateful to Raleigh Acupuncture for helping me. I’m too young to deal with this.
I had just returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. When I got home I was not able to get an erection. I’m in my mid-thirties, happily married. This had never happened to me before. However, my last tour was hell, and I had been having nightmares. My wife suggested I try acupuncture. The doctor at Raleigh Acupuncture said my ED was caused by the stress of my last tour. He gave me three treatments and I was good as new. What a relief! And the nightmares stopped as well. I had no idea stress could have that effect on my body. Thank you for your professionalism and good work.
