Acupuncture is one of the Chinese ancient and traditional Chinese methods used to cure various diseases. It concentrates on certain specific points in your body for releasing the energy which in turn boosts up the healing process. 

For erectile dysfunction also many researchers suggest that acupuncture may help in reducing the risk of its side effects.

Acupuncture is the natural approach besides several medications to cure erectile dysfunction.

What is erectile dysfunction and what causes it?

Erectile dysfunction or ED is defined as the condition when you are unable to have and maintain a firm erection during sexual activity.ED is one of the commonly found sexual diseases in men.

Most men around the world are suffering from erectile dysfunction. This is not an age-related problem but increases with age and is more prone in aged males.


Various physical and psychological factors may trigger erectile dysfunction.

Physical causes that may give rise to erectile dysfunction are:

  • Heart problems

  • High blood pressure

  • High cholesterol levels

  • Diabetes

  • Obesity

  • Sleep apnea 

  • Low testosterone levels

  • Certain medicines and many more.

Psychological factors that may lead to ED are :

  • Depression 

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Problem in relationship


Certain lifestyle choices may also contribute in the situation like

  • Overconsumption of alcohol

  • Smoking

  • Tobacco

  • Substance abuse

  • Improper diet

  • No exercise


Any of the above factors may lead to erectile dysfunction which if not gets treated on time may give rise to various other physical and mental health-related issues.


The working mechanism of acupuncture

Acupuncture relies on using thin and tiny needles to release the body's energy to heal and restore health.

By inserting these tiny thin needles under the skin of specific body points and meridians, practitioners balance and activate your body's energy to initiate the healing process.

It has been proven to stimulate certain nerves that release specific hormones necessary to maintain your overall health including sexual health. It also helps in improving the blood flow thus eradicating various health-related issues.

Acupuncture practitioners describe acupuncture as a mode to unblock the pathways that are restricting the healing mechanism.

However, its exact working mode is not known. Western medical culture doesn't accept it as an effective mode of treatment so it is still a subject of study and research.


Acupuncture and ED

Besides so much research, the use of acupuncture in treating erectile dysfunction is limited. Acupuncture mainly focuses on treating psychological ED. It has been proven to be effective against erectile dysfunction caused due to physiological factors. And still, there is a lack of evidence that can prove acupuncture's effectiveness in treating ED caused due to any physical or health-related factors.

Preliminary study results show a positive impact of acupuncture on erectile dysfunction treatment like:

After acupuncture treatment patients with psychological ED show signs of improvement. They reported satisfying sexual performance.

Acupuncture heals and relaxes your nervous system that helps in overcoming stress and anxiety, the two major causes of psychological erectile dysfunction.

Also as compared to other ED treatments, acupuncture is less expensive and convenient.

It also gets covered by some insurance companies which makes the treatment process easier and affordable.


Research is still going on and there is more to know about the effectiveness of acupuncture against erectile dysfunction. But if you are looking for natural and cheap ED treating methods with minimum side effects then acupuncture is worth trying.


Risk of acupuncture

Like other treatment methods, acupuncture also comes with some potential risks. But these side effects are not generalized and can be seen rarely.

  • If you take acupuncture treatment from some unqualified or undertrained practitioner, you may face the following issues:

  • It may cause wounds that will lead to infections.

  • Accidently your delicate body organs may get punctured.

  • Your nerves may receive some damage.

  • It may also damage your blood vessels which further restricts the blood flow.

So it is highly advisable to take treatment with a qualified practitioner only who strictly adheres to the FDA guidelines and principles while doing the treatment.

Also before treatment ensure that he must use sterilized and disposable needles for treatment purposes.


Alternative treatment methods for erectile dysfunction

Several other effective treatment methods are also available to treat erectile dysfunction and include

Oral medicines

Oral pills like sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, and avanafil are used as the first line of treatment of ED by most doctors.

Vidalista 20 is one such tablet used to cure impotence in men.

Like other ED pills, vidalista 20 is a prescribed and approved oral pill used to treat erectile dysfunction.

Vidalista 20 contains tadalafil as an active drug ingredient.

Besides treating ED, vidalista 20 also helps in curing premature ejaculation.

How to have vidalista 20?

Vidalista 20 can behave with a glass of water with or without food. Take vidalista 20 without chewing or crushing at least 30 minutes or 1 hour of sexual intercourse.

How does vidalista 20 work?

Vidalista 20 like other ED pills is a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor that prevents the decomposition of cGMP. Thus vidalista 20 helps in relaxing the penis muscles which aids in increasing the blood flow and ease in to get an erection.

Vidalista 20 works only in the presence of sensual stimulation. In absence of sexual arousal vidalista, 20 can't be effective.


Self-injection of alprostadil can be injected directly inside the penis that eases the penile smooth muscle relaxation and increases the blood thus making it easier to have a firm erection.


Alprostadil urethral suppository is placed at the top of the penis which releases the blood flow thus easing to have an erection.


Inflatable or malleable penile devices are implanted inside the penis that helps in getting the erection whenever required.

Vacuum pumps

Vacuum pumps or penis pumps are placed over the penis that pulls up the blood which creates a vacuum inside the penis that causes it to swell and get erect thus helping in achieving an erection.


Testosterone therapy 

When the reason behind your erectile dysfunction is low testosterone level then testosterone replacement therapy will help in maintaining the hormonal balance inside the body thus increasing the libido and helps in overcoming erectile dysfunction.


Vascular reconstructive surgery

This surgery aims in removing the blocked arteries of the penis which are then replaced with belly muscles to create an unblocked path for proper blood flow.


Besides the above treatment methods, certain positive changes in your lifestyle may also help in reducing the risk of possible side effects of erectile dysfunction like

  • Start doing exercise. Kegel and aerobic exercise will help you.
