Men And Women’s Health

Men and women may encounter unique health issues throughout their lives, ranging from hormonal imbalances and reproductive health concerns to cardiovascular diseases and mental health disorders. Preventive measures such as regular screenings, healthy lifestyle choices, stress management, and maintaining a balanced diet play pivotal roles in mitigating these risks and fostering long-term well-being.

We adopt a multidisciplinary approach that integrates preventive care, lifestyle modifications, and targeted interventions to address specific health concerns and promote overall vitality.

How acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine help with Men’s health

Prostate Health: Improve symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatitis by reducing inflammation and pain. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be used as an adjunct treatment for acute bacterial prostatitis as well as some chronic types of prostatitis. It can also help manage and reduce symptoms of an inflamed prostate that is under observation by your doctor.[1]

Erectile Dysfunction and Sexual Health: Enhance sexual function by increasing blood flow to the genital area and balancing hormone levels. Regarding erectile dysfunction, acupuncture seems to positively influence the regulation of the hypothalamus, hormonal function, and local nervous function. Acupuncture is a promising therapeutic option, especially when combined with conventional therapies and by directly addressing mental health.[2]

Fertility Issues:  Improve sperm quality and quantity. To be specific, acupuncture for male infertility and Chinese herbal medicine can regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis (regulates testis function), improve Sertoli and Leydig cell function (sperm production), and reduce oxidative stress.[3]

Stress and Anxiety:  Alleviate stress and anxiety, common factors that affect men’s physical health. Mental health issues are on the rise in men, and Chinese Medicine can be a helpful complementary therapy for managing these conditions. Chinese Medicine is a holistic approach to health that looks at the body, mind, and spirit as interconnected. It uses a variety of techniques, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, and lifestyle counseling, to help people heal.[4]

Cardiovascular Health:  Lower blood pressure and improve heart health. Acupuncture has been known to be beneficial in managing blood pressure, which, in turn, helps prevent heart conditions. Erectile dysfunction can be a common side effect of blood pressure medication. Acupuncture encourages the release of natural endorphins in the body, which can decrease the heart’s activity and lower the need for additional oxygen.[5]

Chronic Fatigue:  Boost energy levels and improve overall stamina. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a debilitating condition characterized by persistent fatigue and exhaustion. Acupuncture and herbal medicine have shown promise in alleviating the symptoms of CFS by addressing underlying imbalances in the body’s energy system.[6]

Acupuncture can help to restore a regular period in women who have irregular periods (metrorrhagia or oligomenorrhoea) or when the period is absent (amenorrhea). Regulating the menstrual cycle is also of benefit to women who suffer from PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and may have irregular ovulation and irregular cycles as a result making trying to conceive a bit tricky.[7]

Fertility and Pregnancy:  Improve fertility rates and support a healthy pregnancy, alleviating common discomforts like nausea and back pain; Support uterine health, and assist in postpartum recovery.
