In our clinic, Dr. Liu is a specialist in urology and nephrology.

Prostate Problems

After the age of 40, men are more likely to develop prostate problems. An enlarged prostate (called BPH, benign prostatic hyperplasia, or Prostatitis) may cause annoying or painful symptoms and eventually develops in approximately 80 percent of all men. Some symptoms that may indicate a prostate problem are a weak urinary stream, difficulty starting urination, frequent urination, urgency (difficulty postponing urination), awakening frequently at night to urinate, interruption of the stream (stopping and starting), blood in urine, pain or burning on urination.


Prostatitis is a very common disease of the urinary system in male. The common pathogens are staphylococcus, streptococcus, colibacillus, and others. It is often induced by excessive alcoholic drinking, injury of the perineum, and /or excessive sexual intercourse.

Although the disease name of prostatitis does not exist in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), it belongs to the category of suspended yang-carbuncle, white turbidity, white evil, fatigue strangury, grease strangury, seminal turbidity, lumbar pains due to kidney deficiency and others. There are several types: Stasis Type, Damp-Heat and Kidney-deficiency types.

Causes of chronic prostatitis include dysfunction of the immune system, excessive sexual activities, indulgence in drinking too much alcohol, inflammation of the upper-respiratory tract, urethra, seminal vesicle, rectum, epididymis, perineum, and others.

TCM is effective treating prostatitis using Chinese herbal formulas that are specifically tailored to your individual pattern of disease and acupuncture are used to relieve the pain, clean up the urinary tract and improve the Qi and blood of the kidney. The period of time required for treatment is dependent on your specific case and the necessary time for the recovery will vary. Internal and external treatment are both important in the case of prostatitis. Life style changes can help enhance the immune system to hasten recovery.

Dr. Liu also is trained to treat male reproductive disorders as well.


It has been estimated that up to 40 million men in the US and about half of all men aged 40 to 70 years experience erectly dysfunction to some degree. Impotence refers to softness of the penis during erection, an inability to maintain an erection or a powerless erection during sex. In Western medicine, these problems are generally categorized under the heading of erectile dysfunction. In ancient times, the Chinese referred to the male external genitalia as yin apparatus or "yin qi" (The qi mentioned here is different from the qi that normally circulates throughout the body.) Male genitalia are considered to be an assembly of or master of the tendons, which means they are a collection place for the tendons to gather. In TCM impotence is seen as the "looseness and unrestraint of the 'master' of tendons (male genitalia)", a "disease of yin qi" and "a dysfunction in the rise and disuse of male genitalia.

In TCM sexual physiology, the kidneys rule reproduction. Essence (jing) stored in the kidneys provides the material basis for genital development and maturation of sexual instinct. Therefore, abundance or depletion of kidney essence (jing) affects sexual function directly. While our sexual energy is derived mainly from inherited kidney essence, it is supplemented by the acquired essence obtained from ingested foods and fluids that have been processed by the spleen and stomach. Under normal conditions, our blood and qi essence (derived form the kidneys) circulate throughout the body to provide nourishment. Excessive sexual activity will deplete qi essence and blood in men. The material part of qi essence in the kidneys makes up the semen that will be excreted from the body. One reason why TCM discourages excessive sexual activities is because seminal fluid is considered to be a precious qi essence or life substance. Qi essence is one of the fundamental materials used for supporting life activities and exhaustion of it will lead to health problems and possibly even endanger life.

In TCM erectile dysfunction can be caused by a Kidney disorder such as Ming Men Fire deficiency, Kidney Yang and Essence deficiency resulting in premature graying, poor memory, coldness, not aging well and incontinence; Kidney Qi injured by shock due to shock during sex, or chronic Kidney Qi deficiency inducing fear or poor sleep; Lower Jiao Damp-Heat; Heart Spleen deficiency due to fatigue, overwork, overstress, palpitations or poor digestion. These all can be treated by acupuncture with no side effects and an individually prescribed herbal formula based upon the patients specific disease patterns.


The likelihood of developing an enlarged prostate increases with age. In fact, BPH is so common that it has been said, "All men will have an enlarged prostate if they live long enough!" A small amount of prostate enlargement is present in many men over age 40 and more than 90% of men over age 80. Prostate enlargement is often called benign prostatic hypertrophy or hyperplasia (BPH). It is not cancer and it does not put you at increased risk for prostate cancer. The prostate gland produces the fluid that carries sperm during ejaculation. As the prostate enlarges, which happens to almost all men as they get older, it can press on the urethra (the tube that empties urine from the bladder). This causes problems with urination.
It belongs to the category of (retention of urine) in TCM.

Dr. Liu is very successful at treating prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer occurs in 1 out of 10 men and is curable when caught early. Early prostate cancer causes no symptoms and can only be detected by regular checkups.
Several of his patients who have prostate cancer have had their PSA (prostate specific antigen) reduced to within the normal range.

Chronic Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)

I used to have severe UTI attacks every other month and was in and out of doctors offices all the time for the past seven years. Every time MDs would prescribe antibiotics for me. I developed chronic yeast infections after taking so many antibiotics. Since I started acupuncture with Dr. Yang in only four sessions, I no longer was having attacks. For the past three months I have had no yeast infection or UTI attacks. I hope more and more patients who suffer from chronic UTI or yeast infection will find Dr. Yang. She cured me with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine without any side effects. I think more of us should stay away from overuse of antibiotics and use acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

Thank you Dr. Yang !!!
