Sexual Health Topic Alert!!!
Let’s be honest. Everyone wants to feel sexy and to perform optimally with their partner. And whereas we can all blame the lighting or exhaustion for our lack of drive, this issue is often rooted in deeper underlying causes, such as:
- Hormonal imbalance
- Stressed adrenals
- Effects of birth control
- Postpartum issues
- Menopause and Perimenopause
If you’re ready to get your groove back and regain your sex drive of the past, then here are 6 tips to get you there!

Understand the effects of birth control
Birth control suppresses progesterone (the fertility hormone) and causes estrogen dominance. You could have adequate levels of estrogen, but the imbalance can cause a host of sides effects, one of which being a decrease in libido. Birth control pill can also lower your testosterone levels, which is a critical hormone for romantic moods.
Eat your Aphrodisiacs -aka- foods that are proven to boost libido:
Zinc is an essential mineral for a healthy libido, as well as many other functions in the body. Zinc plays an important role in the production of testosterone, which is an critical hormone for BOTH men and women to maintain a healthy sex drive. Zinc is also important for sleep, memory, healthy insulin response, and a healthy immune system. The best form of zinc is zinc picolinate, which has a much better absorption rate than the forms more commonly found such as gluconate and sulfate.
10 libido-boosting foods include:
- Black Raspberries
- Pine Nuts
Stress can increase heart rate and blood pressure which can both lower sexual desire and performance. I recommend talking to your partner about your stressors, as it may help you and also draw the two of you closer. There are also several supplements you can take help you manage and prevent stress reactions, including magnesium, Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, and Inositol.
Increases circulation through exercise can reduce stress. Physical activity will also increase the production of serotonin in the brain, which regulates mood, improves sleep, sexual desire and function.
Seek Medical help if needed
If you are suffering from erectile dysfunction or any other sexual obstacles (such as vaginal dryness or painful intercourse), I recommend seeking professional medical help to address the underlying cause and build a health plan to regain what has been lost.
