Spermatorrhea

Health Issues/Symptoms Connections

"Spermatorrhea" Issue / Symptom Connections

Below you will find various relationships to, and potential clinical treatment approaches for spermatorrhea.

It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine, treatment for "spermatorrhea" is rarely focused on the symptoms exclusively. Alternatively, a practitioner is looking at the factors that led to the development of "spermatorrhea" - i.e. the "cause(s)".

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, "spermatorrhea" is potentially related to one or more of the following diagnostic patterns: kidney jing deficiency, kidney yang deficiency, kidney yin deficiency, liver and gallbladder damp heat, and/or liver fire.

The above patterns are common examples. In clinical situations, however, there are any number of other possibilities. Many times there will be a layered combination of patterns in an interwoven blend with their symptoms - some being the cause of an issue and the result of another issue. While initially complex, this is illustrative of the the web of relationships that Chinese Medicine is designed to approach.

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
