Our Holistic Approach to Treating Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation can be lifelong (having always occurred since the beginning of sexual experiences) or acquired (occurring after previously having sexual encounters without premature ejaculation). While there is no exact cause, it is agreed that this condition involves a complex interplay between biological and mental factors. This complexity is why a holistic approach to treatment creates more favorable outcomes. We’ll take the time to understand all the contributing factors that might be playing a role so you can experience better fertility and overall health.

Treating Premature Ejaculation Naturally

Premature ejaculation is often a source of embarrassment for men, which can prevent them from seeking treatment. However, this condition is extremely common and treatable. For those seeking a natural remedy for premature ejaculation and fertility, we will create a treatment plan involving acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, or a combination of both.

Acupuncture for Premature Ejaculation

Acupuncture treatment for premature ejaculation addresses biological factors by moderating blood flow to the genitals and testes. Treatments also harmonize hormone levels throughout the body that could be impacting premature ejaculation. Relief from mental factors, such as stress and anxiety, is also improved. These holistic treatments allow patients to improve fertility outcomes and return to normal sexual function with firmer and longer-lasting erections and fewer occurrences of premature ejaculation.

During treatment, patients can expect to have acupuncture needles placed on the lower abdomen, legs, arms, and sometimes elsewhere, such as the ears. Results can vary based on a number of factors, however, most patients may begin to experience results within 6+ months of receiving weekly treatment. We will likely recommend combining acupuncture with Chinese herbs to maximize effectiveness.

Chinese Herbal Medicine for Premature Ejaculation

Herbal medicine to treat premature ejaculation is effective in healing the body both physically and mentally. Formulas support normal sexual function by balancing yin and yang, qi, blood, and hormone levels. Herbs moderate blood flow to the genitals and testes helping patients experience longer-lasting and firmer erections. The mental factors of stress and anxiety for premature ejaculation are also reduced.

Results can vary based on a number of factors, however, most patients may begin to experience sustained results after 6-12 months of weekly treatments. After discussing your health history, we may recommend combining this therapy with acupuncture. We see better outcomes with improved results when these treatments are paired together for fertility treatments.
