Problems with sexual performance are common, and much research has been conducted to identify the causes and possible treatment methods in both western and Chinese medicine. Since causes and treatment of sexual dysfunction (particularly erectile dysfunction) can involve internal organ functions as well as rather drastic treatment measures, western medical practitioners now run tests to look at the patients’ entire state of health. Luckily, traditional Chinese medicine has a large arsenal of methods, many of which have shown effectiveness in the treatment of most types of erectile dysfunction. The natural methods of traditional Chinese medicine are noninvasive and inexpensive, and their success rates increase when they are used in combinations with each other. Due to the holistic and individual approach of traditional Chinese medicine, the degree of effectiveness can vary from person to person not so much because of the diagnosis but individual differences in signs and symptoms in each patient.
