Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is actually very common for men over 40. At the age 40, around 40% of men experience ED and this increases with age.

在中医药(TCM)中,它专注于问题的核心。根据中医 中医, what’s causing ED or low libido does not lie in the problem of the genitals; it’s actually due to weak kidneys! In western medicine, we know the kidney as the organ that is responsible for filtering and removing waste from the body. 

However in TCM, the kidney is the organ that affects the balance of your Yin and Yang – which includes your libido as well! If the kidney is weak, it can affect your overall health. Therefore, to treat ED and increase your libido, kidney is the key organ to nourish.

Before you start searching for foods which can help to nourish your kidneys and consume them, it’s important to identify if you are suffering from Kidney Yin deficiency or Kidney Yang deficiency. Kidney Yin and Kidney Yang have to be in equilibrium for good health. Therefore, you should nourish your kidney with foods that specifically support the one you’re lacking in.
