Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Is there anything that I should avoid taking if I am having a problem with impotence?
A: The herb yohimbe is the source of the drug yohimbine, which has been shown to be modestly effective for impotence. However, this is a fairly dangerous treatment, and it is not recommended.
The herb licorice may reduce testosterone levels in men. For this reason, men with impotence, infertility, or decreased libido may want to avoid this herb.
You may find these specially formulated Traditions of Tao products helpful for impotence: “Dragon Male”, “Yang Exhaustion”, “High Performance”, “Enduring Youth”, and “Five Elements”. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
