Impotence, Low Libido, Male Infertility

Typical symptoms:

impotence, low libido

Disease description:

In men, testosterone deficiency reduces libido and penile sensitivity. Chronic diseases such as chronic kidney failure, cirrhosis of the liver, alcoholism, hypothyroidism, etc. can reduce the sexual desire in men, as well as depression and other psychological causes.

Erectile Dysfunction (impotence) means that the penis becomes flaccid again after a short time or does not become stiff at all during an erection. Although sexual desire is often still present, satisfying sex is often no longer possible. Men of all ages can be affected, but potency problems increase with age. With increasing age, the probability increases that organic causes are the trigger of impotence. Next to diseases like diabetes or vascular problems, there can be psychological causes. If the erection fails once or only occasionally, reasons for this can be stress or tiredness.

Explanation according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Chinese medicine believes that the Kidney is the most important for sexual function, followed by the Heart and Liver. The Essence stored in the Kidney is the material basis of sexual function and the original substance that promotes sexual development and maintains sexual function. Kidney EssenceĀ is transformed into Kidney Qi under the steaming effect of KidneyYang. Kidney Qi has the effect of warming and invigorating the genitals to complete the excitement and sexual intercourse of the genitals.

The Heart dominates the mental consciousness of the human body. Although sexual function is rooted in the Kidney, it starts in the Heart.

The Liver Meridian is wrapped around the penis. Furthermore, the Liver smoothes emotions and ensures flow of energy, so LiverĀ function and sexual function are closely related.
