Sexuality

What's happening to the male libido?

We tend to think of men’s libido as overcharged and always ready for action. This may be true for many men. Still, with the advent of erection enhancing drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, there’s no question that a lot of men are looking for new ways to bring back their youthful sexuality.  Some sexual problems like occasional erectile dysfunction impotence or reduced libido can actually be a good wake up call that overall health needs a boost. For instance, impotence problems may signal later cardiovascular problems due to poor circulation. A low libido in a man may be a sign of depression, reduced testosterone or , most often, a lackluster diet with little or no fresh fruits and vegetables. All of the factors can be easily improved with healthy diet changes, targeted herbal therapy and regular exercise. Further, sometimes, a man may only need to take a closer look at his prescription medication for the cause of his low libido or erectile dysfunction. Antidepressants, sedatives, high blood pressure medication, and diuretics top the list of drugs that can put a damper on male libido and the ability to achieve an erection.

Are your testosterone levels low?

Around four to five million American men do not produce enough testosterone. Even more worrisome, research shows that most men know very little about testosterone, or how low testosterone levels can affect their health.

Low testosterone signs to watch for: Lack of energy and libido Difficulty concentrating or depression Low sperm count/ Infertility Weakened erections Loss of muscle mass or body hair Increased breast size Bone loss or osteoporosis

Testosterone replacement with bioidentical hormones or transdermal gels is becoming more and more popular for men with this problem, but any type of testosterone replacement should be closely monitored to avoid health risks like hormone-driven prostate or testicular cancer, and side effects like prostate enlargement, acne, head hair loss, fertility problems, and irritability.

Diet is an essential component of recovery. Emphasis must be on optimal nutrient foods that can strengthen your body and build strong immune response. Reduce dietary fats, caffeine, sugar, and alcohol. Don’t smoke. It seriously depresses immune response.

  • Eat plenty of fresh vegetables, especially high chlorophyll, blood cleansing leafy greens. Have a salad every day with flax oil or olive oil dressing for essential fatty acids.

  • Have a glass of fresh vegetable juice (any blend) daily.

  • Eat only whole foods. No junk or heavily processed foods.

  • Eat about 2 tablespoons of dried sea vegetables daily.

  • Eat yogurt or other cultured foods for friendly flora.

  • Add neutralizing superfoods for detoxification support.

  • Drink purified water, about eight 8-oz. glasses daily.

Some supplements and superfoods we work with help build immune strength.

Weight Loss Success After the Holidays

During the holidays, most of us overindulge in sweets. Sugar cravings are the downfall of many well meaning dieters. I know from experience that once you start binging on sugary foods, it's hard to stop. Overeating sugar can lead to serious consequences. Further, sugar raises insulin levels too much, your body’s signal to make fat, bad news for weight loss. Do you need to control sugar cravings?

  • Do you binge on junk foods, especially fatty and sugary foods?

  • Do you eat all of your calories at one meal?

  • Do you have second and third helpings at a meal but still feel hungry?

  • Do you experience a wired feeling that is only relieved by eating sweets?

  • Are you easily frustrated, and moody with frequent crying spells?

If you answered yes to 3 of the 5 questions above, then a sugar craver's weight loss program may be right for you. First, add 2 apples to your diet every day for stabilizing fiber. Second, drink more water to get over diet plateaus. Dehydration slows resting metabolic rate (RMR) and can cause waste products like ketones to build up.
