Chinese Herbal and Acupuncture Treatment Protocols for Impotence (Erectile Dysfunction) - Formulas, Protocols, TCM Diagnoses

The Chinese Medicine treatment of impotence (erectile dysfunction) generally involves arriving at the appropriate TCM diagnosis or pattern. This pattern within the individual is what treatment is based on not the general condition (see treating the cause and not the symptoms).

Impotence, or erectile dysfunction, occurs when a man is completely unable to have an erection, inconsistently is able to achieve an erection, or is unable to sustain an erection beyond short periods of time. There are several causes of ED, including certain medications, damage to the nerves and tissue (commonly due to disease), smoking, physical inactivity, emotional or psychological stress, and injury to the penis, bladder, prostate, pelvis or spinal cord.
