Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation

Testimonials

Hassan had premature ejaculation and his last sperm test found his sperm count stood at under 2 million. After 3 months of treatment, his total count had risen to 36 million.

“I am very happy with the result. I can last as long as 10 minutes now. Before, I could not do even 1 minute.”

Lee, 50, could last for less than 2 minutes. After seeing us 3 times, he could last 10 minutes.

“I am happy with the results. My wife even complained that I lasted a bit too long for her.”

Gary could only stay erect for a minute or so. Penetration was a problem and he often did not ejaculate. He said the following after 2 months’ treatment, in his third consultation.

“I can now maintain erection for more than 10 minutes and ejaculate inside.”

On Freddy’s second visit, he said this.

“I could only get hard for 1 to 2 minutes max. Now I can last for 5 minutes. My back has no pain and is a lot more flexible. It does not give me trouble any more. My wife is happy; that is very important for me.

Erectile dysfunction is a very common condition, particularly among older men: It is estimated half of all men between 40 and 70 years old will have it to some degree. It is regularly called “impotence”, where a man cannot achieve or maintain an erection during sexual performance. Symptoms can also include reduced sexual desire or libido. ED is not the same problem as poor sperm count and quality, though they may be related.

Your doctor is likely to diagnose erectile dysfunction if it lasts more than a few weeks or months. Causes are varied, and include hormonal imbalance, fatigue, stress, performance anxiety and alcohol consumption. Standard treatments include pharmaceutical medications, vacuum pumps, implants, and surgery, but many men prefer natural options as most conventional treatments have side effects, some serious.

Premature ejaculation 

Premature ejaculation means ejaculating too quickly, and is one of the most common male sexual problems. It can be a cause of real distress for both men and their partners. It has been a major factor in marriage break ups. A UK survey which polled several thousand British males, found that around 10% often or sometimes experienced premature ejaculation.

A precise definition is difficult to establish: What some couples consider a satisfactory length of intercourse is inadequate for others. A US report presented to the 2006 Congress of the European Society for Sexual Medicine stated  men with premature ejaculation lasted 1.8 minutes on average, while “normal” men lasted 7.3 minutes on average. Another study, looking at 500 couples from 5 different countries, found men lasted 5.5 minutes on average.

Since perceptions of premature ejaculation vary widely, doctors usually try to pin down how long the patient can last. The common advice is that if you can’t last for 5 minutes, you should consider the possibility of getting some treatment. As a working definition, if either your partner or you feel orgasm is happening much too soon, there is probably some degree of premature ejaculation.

Common conventional medical treatment available in the NHS, falls into 3 classes: advice and training to change behaviour, psychotherapy, and medication (usually some form of anti-depressants).

How do we help?

We tailor-make a mix of fully natural Chinese herbs to treat low libido, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and impotence issues. Most patients are asked to have an erectile dysfunction test carried out prior to treatment.

We do an hour-long first consultation, in which we do non-invasive and pain-free Chinese medical diagnostic procedures, in order to understand your particular condition and circumstances thoroughly.

Our specialist prescribes a unique herbal formula, usually consisting of around 20 kinds of herbs, from which you will make drinks and consume 24 days of medication, twice daily, over a period of 4 weeks and a day of “rest” each week.

A month after the first consultation, you will have finished the first round of herbal remedy. We do a second consultation, lasting 30 minutes, carrying out another diagnostic procedure to see how well you’ve responded to the treatment. Another prescription will be written.

This monthly cycle will repeat 3 or 4 times before you are asked to have another erectile dysfunction test. Over 80% of our patients see significant improvements and move onto phase 2 of the programme to consolidate their results.

What are our fees? 

The fees come to about £350–400 a month, all inclusive.

How often do I need to come?

Once a month. Most patients come from 3 to 9 months, averaging 6.

What to expect during a consultation

A traditional Chinese medical consultation involves the following steps.

Observation

The practitioner may scrutinise your complexion, eyes, tongue, and movements to gain insight into how your organs are functioning. The tongue is a particularly important source of information, and its colour, body, coating, and moisture will all be taken into account.

Assessment

The practitioner assesses the patient’s energy and general condition by taking into account your body heat, odour, skin sensitivity, and uses other senses to gain an insight into the your condition.

Taking a history

To gain a full picture, the practitioner will ask detailed questions about your complaint and your medical history. They will want to find out whether your problems vary at all according to the time of year and your diet, feelings or emotions.

Pulse diagnosis

This can provide a highly sensitive and detailed picture of your general health. The practitioner will take a number of different ‘pulses’ on three fingers of each hand. This enables him to gain further information about the quality and functioning of the five major organs. The practitioner will take account of your general health and strength, as well as all of your symptoms, whether they seem to you to be connected or not. This will be the basis for deciding on the best treatment.

Follow up

Monthly consultations are required to gauge your progress. The prescriptions will be devised accordingly — for treating a changing condition, a fixed single herb or formula is unlikely to be effective over time.

Patients want to know how long they need to see us for. We say after 3 months of treatment, we will review progress, retesting hormones or sperm and check subjective experience, such as sexual interest and performance. If they are at normal levels, we discharge the patients.

If they are better but still need further improvement, patients may need second course of treatment at the same or less intensity.

Typically, men see us for 3 to 6 months.

The point is we the way we treat patients means they should not rely on our treatment for too long. Their improved health and function should stay with them if they look after their health.

A booking fee of £50 (refunded when you attend) will be processed at booking. 

Are there patients we cannot help?

Yes. No medical system is foolproof and medical practitioners, however good, are not omnipotent. As great as our success rates are, they are not 100%. There are times patients do not respond to our treatments despite our best efforts.

Delayed improvements are possible when patients rest a little. However, even with rest, patients may still not respond well. Fortunately, these cases are in the minority. We minimise the number of these cases by trying to understand our patients’ conditions as much as possible before taking them on. We minimise time and financial commitments from patients by insisting they have hormone or sperm test results prior to treatment, and to get retested after 3 months —following our evidence-based approach.

At TCM Healthcare, we will always have your best interests in mind and we will do our best.
