Herbal relief: Men’s health

16 June, 2015

In the West we tend to look to herbs to treat specific problems – unlike traditional Chinese medicine, where herbs are recognized for their virtues as energy tonics and in bring the whole body to back into balance.

Neither approach is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ and modern research is backing up the benefits of certain herbs to deal with key men’s health issues such as prostate health, infertility, erectile dysfunction, and stress and the chart below makes suggestions for some of the herbs recommended to treat specific short-term health problems.

Obviously such problems have numerous origins and if any symptoms worsen or are persistent, it’s important to seek medical advice. This chart is not comprehensive, but it does contain the key herbs for men’s health.
