Mr. Su had just finished his second marriage, but his life after marriage made him feel very bad. Because I couldn't have sex with my wife several times in succession, because I was suffering from impotence. Out of frustration, Mr. Zhang went to the drugstore to buy some drugs for tonifying the kidney and strengthening the yang. But after taking it for a month or two, the symptoms of impotence did not abate, but caused nosebleed. He felt very scared, so he stopped taking the medicine.
Due to the influence of traditional concepts, the idea of impotence and "kidney deficiency" has long been deeply rooted in people's minds. Indeed, from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, all kinds of physiological activities of the human body, especially sexual and reproductive activities, are closely related to the kidney, while factors such as excessive sex and anxiety can directly or indirectly damage the function of the "kidney", resulting in impotence.
Therefore, men will immediately think of kidney deficiency as long as there is a little wind and grass stirring, which is also reasonable. In fact, there are many reasons for impotence. In addition to kidney deficiency, traditional medicine believes that heart and spleen deficiency, fear of hurting the kidney, stagnation of liver-qi, damp-heat injection, blood stasis, etc. can cause impotence. Therefore, impotence is not a synonym for kidney deficiency, far from being generalized by the word kidney deficiency, nor can it be solved simply by tonifying the kidney. Therefore, do not blindly tonify the kidney as soon as impotence occurs.
Impotence is mainly caused by two reasons, one is psychogenic and the other is organic. But most of them are caused by psychological effects. Therefore, the treatment of impotence depends on the etiology. Don't take medicine blindly and take supplements at random.
