Many men suffer from impotence, known as erectile dysfunction (ED), premature ejaculation (PE) or having other low sex drive (libido) problems. There are some remedies that can be used to treat these sexual dysfunctions. Velvet antler, lamb, cinnamon, fenugreek, horny goat weed and ginseng have effects to improve the conditions.
According to traditional Chinese medical theory, the sexual dysfunctions, such as impotence, premature ejaculation and low sex drive are due to underlying weakness in “kidney”. In Chinese medical theory, “kidney” is not just referring to the physical organs of the kidneys. Rather it refers to very specific energy flows and functions related to kidneys. The concept “kidney” includes genital organs, adrenal gland, kidney, prostate and bladder. They all are located in the lower abdomen.
Velvet antler, lamb, cinnamon, fenugreek and horny goat weed all have warming properties and work on the area of the lower abdomen. It other words, they have the effects to warm the body “from the bottom”, especially to warm genital organs. That’s why they can be used to treat weakness in sexual functions. Ginseng is different from the above remedies. Ginseng is a warming herb which mainly tonifies lungs, stomach and other organs in upper body, but it also can be used to treat general body weakness.
The following are three decoctions for men’s low sex drive, impotence & premature ejaculation:
1. Ginseng, velvet antler & chicken soup: Prepare ginseng 10g, velvet antler 5g, and chicken 500g. Boil them in a pot for one hour to make a soup. Eat a bowl of the soup, two times a day.
2. Lamb & ginger soup: Prepare lamb 1000g, and ginger 20g. Boil them in a large pot for 1-2 hours to make a soup. Eat a bowl of the soup, two times a day.
3. Cinnamon, fenugreek & horny goat weed. Prepare each 10g of cinnamon, fenugreek and horny goat weed. Boil them in 2 cups of water for 30 minutes. Pour the water extract into a container, then add 2 cups of water, and boil the strained herbs for another 30 minutes. Mix the first water extract with the second one. Drink 1-2 cups, two times a day.
* Low sex drive is a chronic problem. It takes time to improve the symptoms. You need to be patient when using any treatment for it.
** If you have inflammation, feverish diseases, dry and itchy skin, or ulcers, you should not take the above warming remedies.
