Impotence (Erectile Dysfunction) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for impotence (erectile dysfunction). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "impotence (erectile dysfunction)" is rarely designed with the resulting "impotence (erectile dysfunction)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "impotence (erectile dysfunction)", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - heart qi deficiency, liver and gallbladder damp heat, liver qi stagnation, spleen qi deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.
