Men's Erectile Dysfunction / Impotence

Impotence refers to softness of the penis during erection, an inability to maintain an erection during sexual intercourse. In Western medicine, these problems are generally known as erectile dysfunction.

In TCM sexual physiology, the kidneys rule reproduction. Essence (jing) is stored in the kidneys which provides genital development and maturation of sexual instinct. Therefore, abundance or depletion of kidney essence (jing) affects sexual function directly. While our sexual energy is derived mainly from inherited kidney essence, it is supplemented by the acquired essence obtained from ingested foods and fluids that have been processed by the spleen and stomach.

Excessive sexual activity will deplete qi essence and blood in men. The material part of qi essence in the kidneys makes up the semen that will be excreted from the body. One reason why TCM discourages excessive sexual activities is because seminal fluid is considered to be a precious qi essence or life substance. Qi essence is one of the fundamental materials used for supporting life activities and exhaustion of it will lead to some health problems.

TCM discourages excessive sexual activities because seminal fluid is considered to be a precious life substance.
