Main ingredient 1: Hippocampus

An old TCM herbalist will tell you, “Eating seahorses keeps your 80-year-old grandpa young!” It is a sexual reference to the seahorse’s aphrodisiac properties. Seahorses are not an overnight cure for infertility or lack of sexual drive, but is a long term tonic they are believed to work wonders.  In its earliest form, dried seahorses are steeped in wine for treating impotence.

Another ancient Chinese saying says, “North is Ginseng and South is Seahorse.” pointing to the seahorse’s similar strength in promoting Kidney Yang, and treating impotence.

Seahorses are also used to treat asthma, respiratory ailments, circulation problems, joint pain and incontinence. Used externally they are good for restoring and cleaning the skin, and helping to prevent early signs of aging.

Whole dried seahorses are popular in soups and are said to taste a bit like scallops, but are more salty and full of tiny bones. Seahorses are monogamous and mate for life.

Seahorses are unique in being the only species in which the male gets pregnant. The female injects eggs into the male’s pouch, where the eggs are fertilised and carried for up to four weeks until they are born. Seahorses can also lay claim to being the most romantic creatures on the planet, performing a dainty daily underwater dance with partners and generally staying faithful for life – even, as experts have found, if they are placed in a tankful of single, available seahorses of the opposite sex. ( SCMP, Endangered Sex Boosting Seahorses Given a Life Buoy, 24th May 2004)

And yes, seahorses can also be eaten. Whole seahorses are made into soup. The taste is similar to dried scallops. The Cantonese have a Seahorse Soup recipe that calls for 4 seahorses, pork stock,

ginger and carrots. It is considered an added benefit to the meal if the male seahorse happens to be pregnant. Of course one must be careful when trying to eat the seahorse. They are served anatomically intact. ( East Meets West, Vigore Chicago Magazine)

Main ingredient 2: Fermented cordyceps

Also known as caterpillar fungus has been described as a medicine in old Chinese medical books and Tibetan medicine. It is actually a rare combination of a caterpillar and a fungus!

Animal experiments show that Cordyceps can stimulate mouse MA-10 cells to produce progesterone, as well as significantly increasing testosterone, resulting in increased sperm formation. For men, Cordyceps sinensis mycelium can effectively delay muscle fatigue, and promote and extend erectile capacity and endurance.

Cordyceps is a genus of parasitic fungi that grows on the larvae of insects. When these fungi attack their host, they replace its tissue and sprout long, slender stems that grow outside the host’s body.The remains of the insect and fungi have been hand-collected, dried and used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to treat fatigue, sickness, kidney disease and low sex drive.

Western vs Oriental system of treatment for erectile dysfunction 

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common sexual problem affecting many men irrespective of cultures, beliefs and nationalities. While medical therapy for ED has been revolutionized by the advent of oral phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors and intracavernosal injection of vasoactive agents, recent technological advances such stem cell therapy, low intensity shock wave and newer generation of penile prosthesis implant offer hope to men who do not respond to conventional medical therapy. In contrast, traditional and complementary medicine (TCM) focuses on the restoration and better overall bodily regulation with the use of various herbal and animal products as well as exercises to invigorate qi (energy) in vital organs. Western medicine involves an analysis of ED symptom and underlying causes that contribute to ED, while TCM emphases the concept of holism and harmonization of body organs to achieve natural sexual life.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the persistent inability to attain and maintain an erection that is sufficient to permit satisfactory sexual performance (1). The current pharmaco-therapeutic research in ED focuses on underlying endothelial dysfunction as the root cause for ED and introduction of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors to potentiate nitric oxide (NO) action and cavernosal smooth muscle vasodilation, has revolutionized modern ED treatment over the past two decades (2). In contrast to Western Medicine, the traditional and complementary medicine (TCM) aims at restoration and better overall bodily regulation with medicine to invigorate qi (energy) in vital organs such as kidney, spleen and liver; to enhance physical fitness, increase sexual drive, stabilize the mind and improve the overall situation resulting in natural and harmonious sexual life (3).

While Western medicine emphases the link between cardiovascular function and ED, TCM places importance on liver and kidney ailments as causative factor for development of ED. Western medicine involves a step-wise approach by targeting the relevant organ systems to treat various clinical symptoms; but TCM focuses on restoring the balance between various organs to achieve harmony and holistic approach to inner sense (4). The following article reviews our current understanding regarding the philosophical approach, and evaluates the evidence surrounding various ED therapies between mainstream Western medicine and TCM.


Kidneys and liver rejuvenation 

While Western medicine emphases the link between cardiovascular function and Erectile Dysfunction (ED), TCM places importance on liver and kidney ailments as causative factor for development of ED. Western medicine involves a step-wise approach by targeting the relevant organ systems to treat various clinical symptoms; but TCM focuses on restoring the balance between various organs to achieve harmony and holistic approach to inner sense.

In modern Science, the kidneys may be playing the role of maintaining the composition of blood by removing waste and excess water, however the kidney system in TCM has a broader range of functions. A person’s growth, maturation and reproduction is also believed to be governed by the kidneys. The essence stored in the kidney is bestowed to each individual from their parents at conception, hence TCM regards the kidney as the “congenital constitution” and origin of life.

The kidney essence is critical for growth and development, and normal aging process will see both vitality and essence decrease. After birth, kidney essence increases gradually and becomes abundant as the body develops. During the early years, the individual undergoes physical changes marked by permanent teeth, hair and height growth. During adolescence, kidney essence peaks to drive the maturation of organs and form the basis of our ability to reproduce.

Energy levels are at its highest and bones are strong during middle age. However, it goes downhill thereafter. Kidney essence depletes and the functions of the organs decline with advancement in age, showing worrying signs of senescence such as deafness, hunchback, hair and teeth loss. Imbalances in kidney essence, ‘qi’, yin or yang can affect the growth and development of humans, resulting in development disorders, congenital mental retardation, soft and weak bones in children and premature aging in adults.

The kidney is the most fundamental organ system of your body, which holds the genetic blueprint of your inherent body constitution and how healthy you will be. Whether yin or yang deficiency, it is essential to trace back to the kidneys’ reserves and address the issue immediately.

Because emotional disharmony, which causes Qi Stasis, lies at the root of many energetic imbalances, the liver, which is responsible for the free flow of Qi, often is thought to be involved in healthy sexuality. This concept is particularly important because the Liver Channel wraps around the genitals in men, and the reproductive organs in women, and is closely related to reproductive capability. Simply put, a strong kidney -liver combination enhances sexuality.
