The benefits of Chinese medicine for women are quite well known (for instance in regards to regulating menstrual cycle, treating PMS and helping during pregnancy) but what about the fellas?
There’s plenty of help on offer from acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for the men, too – so I thought it was time for a blog post to shine a light on the Yang side of the equation!
The 2 main areas that effect men more than women are prostate problems (because women don’t have a prostate!) and male sexual health issues.
In my Bristol clinic I use mainly acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat men’s health problems like these (along with nutritional advice, tuina massage and other tools and techniques as and when needed)
My Chinese herb teacher Dr Feng is a men’s health specialist, so I tend to gravitate towards herbs for these kinds of issues as they have such great results, but sometimes I use acupuncture, and often combine the 2 treatments.
For more info on the treatment of specific conditions, click on one of the links below:
Chinese Herbal Medicine For Premature Ejaculation : A condition that effects men of all ages, but good results can be achieved with herbal treatment
Chinese Herbal Medicine For Erectile Dysfunction (ED): Erectile dysfunction (impotence) effects not just older men but young men too. Again, herbs can be very effective.
Chinese Medicine For Prostatitis : Chinese medicine is great for prostate conditions such as prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia. It can also help to support men with prostate cancer.
Needless to say, these are very ‘male specific’ conditions, but acupuncture, tuina massage and herbal medicine can also help with a wide range of other health problems effecting men of all ages:
- Aches, pains and injuries
- Low libido
- Heart health
- Breathing problems (asthma, COPD etc)
- Mental and emotional conditions
- And more!
