Sexual (performative, function) health issues (erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, libido) and Acupuncture as Treatment

Most men experience some sexual function loss or dips in libido at some point in their lives, and it’s not always because you’ve had one too many at the pub last night. In fact if the subject weren’t such a taboo, experiences and solutions could be shared more openly leading to improved quality of life and better sex. There is a ton of pressure on men to perform these days with pop culture, the prevalence of internet porn and other cultural expectations playing a role in everyone’s perceptions of what is a healthy and mutually satisfying sexual experience. Not to mention the magic of the little blue pill that has become the go to prescription since its release to the public in 1998; Viagra has become one of the largest selling drugs on earth. In terms of long term health, sexual dysfunction can be a precursor to potentially more serious conditions connected with circulation, blood flow and blood health (heart conditions, stroke, diabetes, etc.). By confronting sexual health conditions you may save yourself from other serious issues down the road. Male sexual issues can play out in a variety of ways, namely erectile dysfunction (ED), premature ejaculation (PE), and low libido.

Natural Treatment for Chronic Prostatitis / CPPS (Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome)

How Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Can Help Reduce Pain, Solve Urinary Problems, and Improve Sexual Function. Male Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) is a well-established condition known for the pain and discomfort it causes. It was long thought to be connected specifically with prostatitis or inflamed prostate gland and differentiated from acute bacterial prostatitis or chronic bacterial prostatitis. However, more recently it has been re-defined as abdominal and/or pelvic pain lasting for 3 months, without evidence of a urinary tract infection.

What You Need to Know About Male Infertility

As our cultural and medical understanding of sperm health and male fertility grows, our sperm quality and quantity declines. A study published last year (https://academic.oup.com/humupd/article-abstract/23/6/646/4035689?redire…) found a hefty decline in sperm counts between 1973 and 2011, a 50-60% drop in this time; dramatic to say the least. Most disturbing is there are only theories and notions as to what is the actual cause of this steep decline. Sperm production is a complicated biochemical process and to assess the variables that are in play in it’s healthy production is difficult. Usually studies will look at one or two chemicals or variables to see how they affect sperm health. These types of studies will often show concrete correlations between phthalate exposure and sperm health (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29024969), or stress levels and lower testosterone (https://militarymedicine.amsus.org/doi/pdf/10.7205/MILMED-D-11-00053). However, to have a full picture of the situation is extremely difficult, and all we can do now is investigate trends and specific factors that may be contributing.

Evidence that Stress affects our Testosterone levels

Testosterone is the force behind our sex drive and erectile health, it’s the reason we make sperm. When deficient it can cause fatigue, weakness, depression, lower sperm count and concentration and other symptoms.

Men’s mental and reproductive health is tied to our testosterone levels, which can decrease for a variety of reasons including injury to the testicles (ouch),
