🍌 QA: Is There A Real Solution For Erectile Dysfunction That Actually Works?
Q & A: Alternative Remedies
There really isn't any. All refer to treatments that go beyond the scope of conventional western medicine. Some people think "alternative" implies that it's not as good as western medicine, but that's simply not true. Fortunately, the field is gaining mainstream recognition and credibility. Many studies, including several funded by the National Institutes of Health, have proven that alternative therapies work. More doctors are also acknowledging that western medicine isn't always effective, and often recommend alternative therapies in conjunction with traditional ones. I'm an MD, but in my clinic we also have practitioners who specialize in acupuncture, hypnotherapy and reiki. There's a growing number of clinics like this around the country.
I'm thinking about trying acupuncture, but I'm afraid of needles. Will it hurt?
It shouldn't. The needles used in acupuncture are extremely fine. You may feel a little soreness once the needles are inserted, but it's not like getting an injection. It's also relatively safe: All the needles are sterile and disposed of after one use, so there's very little chance of infection. There's a slight risk that a needle could puncture a blood vessel or a lung, but this is extremely rare. The most important thing is to go to an acupuncturist who is licensed (each state has its own licensing board) and has a good reputation (get a recommendation from a friend or health care provider).
My friend swears by reiki. What is it?
Reiki means "universal energy" in Japanese, and the concept is that we all have energy flowing through our bodies. When that energy is blocked or low, it can lead to a variety of symptoms, ranging from pain in a specific body part to general stress and tension. A reiki practitioner (or "master") channels energy and transfers it from himself to you by placing his hands above or lightly on your body. It might sound hokey, but I really think reiki works. In fact, we often use it in my practice. Some people benefit right away, but most people need two to three treatments to see results.
I'm trying to quit smoking. Will hypnosis help?
Yes, but it works best when combined with other quitting strategies (such as using a nicotine patch and/or getting acupuncture).
