Acupuncture and Natural Medicine for Erectile Dysfunction

n general, an appropriate approach to the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) should focus first on identifying the cause. There are many possible causes of ED, including anxiety, depression, cardiovascular conditions, diabetes, Peyronie's disease, and side effects of medications. Conventional treatment options generally include pharmaceutical stimulants such as viagra or cialis, and/or treatments to address another underlying condition.

As a natural medicine practice, we recognize and respect the value that pharmaceuticals can have in treatment of many conditions which can cause or contribute to ED (especially diabetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol). However, our goal is to identify natural solutions for you which gently restore your body to health and have no side effects. We believe that pharmaceutical and herbal stimulants are often not helpful in the long-term for men's sexual and overall health. We therefore focus on non-stimulant supports which are nourishing to the body's systems.

Depending on the details of a specific case, our treatment methods may include acupuncture, meditation, or recommendations for food choices, exercise, or nutritional supplements. When we use acupuncture to treat ED, the acupuncture points we use are typically at strategic locations on the lower back, arms, or legs. Patients can be fully clothed during the session, though often it is useful to have access to acupuncture points on the back.

These acupuncture points are carefully used to correct the flow of vital energy through the body, bringing the whole body toward better health. We use an extremely gentle technique and tend to achieve noticeable improvements, often within one or a few sessions. However, the length of treatment required will vary depending on the underlying cause of the symptom.

Our style of care is very gentle and it works by supporting the body's natural healing abilities. After a detailed introductory consultation, Dr. Windsor will design a treatment approach for you. If you have any questions about our services, or about our likelihood of success in your case, please feel free to contact us by phone before scheduling your visit.
