  1. I have been doing masturbation for many years. I am going to get married soon and my erections are weak and premature ejaculation is also there. Can you suggest some herbs or remedial measures I can take to avoid the embarrassment? I checked the website by Dr. Lin ( It seemed legit but the medicines cannot be ordered in my country. I am thinking of using some of the herbs used by him as a supplement. To name a few : Panax ginseng, American Ginseng, Damiana, Pumpkin seed, Saw palmetto, pygeum bark, Nestle root, Mucuna pruriens, Tribulus terrestris, Gingko biloba. Does anybody have experience have these medicines? What are your views about Dr. Lin of ( Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Energy, Vitality and Truth

    Hello everyone, In the past years, I have occasionally read some threads in the daobums forum, but I never bothered signing up. Now I did, because I want to start practicing inner energy work properly. I want to do so in order to increase my vitality and gain better health primarily. Secondarily, I am also interested in experiencing subtle energy flow within my own body. Lastly, I would also like to develop myself spiritually. I am aware, that spiritual development is probably prioritized by many people, but I guess I am still very much attached to this physical world, which is why improving my physical health is very important to me. Well, other than that I am actually really curious about one thing: Has anyone been able to reconcile the practical/theoretical differences between systems like Daoism and f.e. Vedic teachings? Has any comparative literature been written on this subject, ideally from a practitioner's point of view? F.e. I have always wondered why in Daoism the fifth element is metal, whereas in the Vedas the fifth element is space or aether. I am also curious, if the different conceptions of energy pathways in the body can be reconciled in some way? TCM has twelve main meridians, whereas Ayurveda speaks of thousands of Nadis. Can the differences of the chakra system and the Dan Tian system in Nei Gong be reconciled? Obviously practitioners from both traditions reach great heights of mastery, so does that imply, that there are many methods, which will lead to the same outcome? If so, how can methods, that differ so much in terms of theoretical concepts of metaphysical understandings, lead to the same outcome? To my materialist mind, it would make much more sense to assume, that there is one correct way of how to conceptualize the nature of reality, even down to those levels of reality, that go beyond the purely physical. Anyways, I am looking forward to learning more about all this.. Peace Entob
  3. Oil Pulling

    Does anyone practice this (now or in the past)? I have known about the super health benefits of sesame seeds/oil for a long time, but this is a new discovery. We grew up eating a dessert made from a combination of rice flour, organic rock sugar & ground black sesame seeds, cooked over low heat until it thickens up, almost like slightly runny custard. Anyone tried this before? Its really delicious and nutritious!! Any feedback would be appreciated.
  4. The Dao of Diet?

    Can anyone tell me if there a Chinese equivalent to the (Indian) Ayurvedic approach to food? Does it have a name and can you recommend any books or good resources on it?
