Sex, Women & Looking Younger

couple-intimacy-b&w

Yes, it’s true. Over 43% of women in the US have some type of sexual dysfunction according to a report in The Journal of the American Medical Association. Let’s discuss in detail Poor or No Orgasm, Low Libido (Low Sexual Desire), and Frigidity.

The problem of low sexual desire is not something we are just seeing happen in today’s day and age. Women (and Men) at all times in history have felt the need for help in the sexual area. This part of our lives is at the most basic, elemental center of our being.

Poor or No Orgasm in a woman can be due to various things. Yet, research indicates the top 3 reasons for poor or no orgasm in women are: 

1. a weakened circulatory system

2. emotional disconnect with her sexual partner (since a woman’s sexual response is very much dependent on physical and emotional stimuli)

3. poor self-body image

When it comes to circulation, for a woman to be more sensitive sexually, improved blood supply to vaginal walls and the clitoris is necessary. If there is healthy circulation to the groin area, you can be sure to also be more sensitive on the famous G-Spot.

The Grafenberg spot (G-spot) is an area of heightened pleasure for any woman when it is stimulated properly. According to The Journal of Sexual Medicine, Volume 9, Issue 5, the G-spot has a distinguishable anatomic structure. Yes, Ladies (and Gentlemen), it does!  It appears as a well-delineated sac with walls that resemble fibro-connective tissues and resemble erectile tissues. Erectile tissues. Think of it. If the G-spot can actually become ‘erect’  it makes perfect sense as to why blood flow is crucial to achieving an orgasm / multiple orgasms. (See image above for the exact location in detail of the G-spot.)

Regarding poor self-body image, you must remember Ladies, that you must learn to love yourself, first and foremost. Think of your body positively, know and understand what pleases you sexually, and share with your partner your sexual fantasies and ideas, no matter what they may be. Walk around your home in the nude as often as you can. Look at yourself in the mirror often. If you do not put yourself on a pedestal and love and treat yourself as the Queen that you are, who can know how they should treat you?

Libido-lowering elements such as: the over-use of drugs (antibiotics and many prescription drugs have side effects of impairing sex drive and even cause vaginal dryness), a stressed, high-pressured, rushed lifestyle,  hormone-injected foods, foods with hormone-disrupting chemicals, and high fat nutrient-poor diets laced with sugar and refined flours, all lead to a lack of time for love-making, low energy and low libido.

Frigidity is painful intercourse usually due to vaginal dryness, and/or fear rooted in sexual trauma (possibly rape, molestation, or any other sexual episode that occurred in the woman’s life that brings her traumatic discomfort when trying to be intimate with a sexual partner). If vaginal dryness is the concern I recommend improving lubrication internally and improving skin tone ( I will give the solution for this at the end of this article).

Fear to have sex because of some physical or emotional trauma may also bring on depression. If a woman is taking anti-depressants or other medications, her libido is almost guaranteed to suffer. If she feels she cannot be pleased or please her partner, it may bring about despair and an even more depressed state, and it becomes a vicious cycle. Depression-related libido problems are resolved when we increase serotonin and also naturally improve libido with herbal aphrodisiacs (sexual enhancing herbs).

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) teaches us that all the above symptoms in women are due to weakness, weak energy, fear/fright, and ‘damp-heat’ within the body. What are the main organs that need focus and support according to TCM?  The Kidneys.

The kidneys are in charge of reproduction, growth (because they also dominate the structural system such as bones, joints, etc.) and maintenance of the metabolic balance of water. Located in the lumbar region of the body, it is said the loins (hips, groin, lower abdomen, reproductive organs) are the residence of the kidneys, so, when the kidneys are ill/diseased, symptoms may occur across the loins. Fear is the emotion related to the Kidneys. And you’ve learned enough with my past information that emotions affect us physically. In  other words, if there is Low Libido, Frigidity, and Poor Orgasm, focus on the Kidneys.

TCM further teaches us that when the Kidneys are not nourished properly, a woman may be suffering infertility also. (This is explained in detail in my new book, ‘The Naturopathic Approach To Fertility’, available on Amazon in English and Spanish editions here: http://www.amazon.com/author/drjulissa.) All should be treated by toning, strengthening, and reinforcing the kidneys’ energy. In this way we also eliminate deep rooted Fear. In my office I’ve seen time and again the concerned look in many female patients’ faces, and worry in their eyes because they just don’t ‘feel’ right.  This discomfort is formidably lifted when a woman balances and strengthens her kidneys.

The recommendations I’ve made below are revitalizers for sexual energy as well as effective natural treatments for the unfortunate and common sexual problems I’ve stated in this article. I’ve used these with profound success in my 22+ years working with patients and clients. Herbs have a centuries-old reputation for effectiveness in working with the body toward sexual health and enhancement.

Use the following combination of herbal therapies for increased circulation, heightened sexual desire, natural lubrication, and hormonal balance:

* Another tip, Ladies! (And Gentlemen…) Remember I’ve also shared with all of you times before in my posts that studies show an active sex life can make you look up to 7 to 12 years younger, count them, 7 to 12 years younger! “It’s good for you to have good sex,” says David Weeks, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, whose study on the effects of sex on aging appears in his book, Secrets of the Superyoung. With that said, All women (and men) can add to their practices of staying healthy by being active sexually, having safe sex, of course, and with this staying young and youthful for as long as possible!

Endometriosis: It’s Painful And Attacks Other Organs

image

Some women, during their monthly period (menstruation),  bleed severely heavy from the vagina, and sometimes from the rectum.  Most times this is caused by Endometriosis. 

And what is Endometriosis exactly? It is an inflammation, many times a severe inflammation, caused by endometrial tissue that is not shed properly during menstruation.  This tissue escapes the uterus and spreads and attacks other organs in the body such as:  lymph nodes, fallopian tubes, ovaries, bladder, kidneys, rectum,  and lungs.  Excessive pain develops when, with time,  the tissue thickens and breaks down to bleeding. Research shows 40-55%  of infertility in American women is due to Endometriosis.  And, scar tissue builds up,  increasing the risk of uterine and even breast fibroids.

Studies also show a link between Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome following an endometriosis diagnosis. Western conventional medicine focuses on prescribing chemical hormone medications with side effects that include:  acne,  unwanted facial and body hair growth, and hot flashes.

Causes of Endometriosis? Yeast infections (click to read my article on Yeast Infections),  like candida, which create small perforations on the uterine wall, are a common cause of endometriosis.   A diet high in caffeine, fat, low essential fatty acids (EFA), low magnesium levels, is also very much a contributor to this painful female problem. And again, something I have pointed out many times  is one of the causes of many female sexual and hormonal health challenges, estrogen dominance/high estrogen levels along with low progesterone are hormonal imbalances that cause abnormal behavior of the endometrium. A woman with this challenge desires relief immediately of this discomfort.

Yeast Infections, Trichomonas, Bacterial Vaginosis, & More…

Yeast-infection-symptoms-in-men-and-women

Newly updated.

Candida auris is a type of yeast causing severe infections in healthcare facilities and hospitalized patients in various countries.  This yeast is known to spread throughout the body by entering the bloodstream and causes other infections.  According to the CDC, an article published Nov. 4, 2016 states: ‘Candida auris has caused bloodstream infections, wound infections, and ear infections. It also has been isolated from respiratory and urine specimens, but it is unclear if it causes infections in the lung or bladder.’

Here is more…

Yeast infections. First, let’s begin with the women. Over 30 million women a year are diagnosed with them. That’s 75% of all adult women who will have had at least 1 vaginal yeast infection according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Of the 75%, 40-45% develop 2 or more infections in their lifetime. Yeast infections can be passed on from kissing also. Yes. It’s true. The bacteria is passed on in the saliva, and can cause stomach discomforts and symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, and can develop into mouth sores. Make sure the person you are kissing brushes, flosses, and uses antiseptic mouthwashes often. And when we’re talking vaginal yeast infections, we’re not talking about just one kind…

Vaginal yeast infections are many. A common characteristic of Candidiasis or Vaginal Candida is a vaginal smell of beer or bread, at times fishy, and a vaginal discharge with redness and itching all around the genitalia.

Leukorrhea is a yeasty infection when normal vaginal acidity is disrupted. leucorrhea symptoms are of inflamed, itchy vaginal tissues, a yeasty foul discharge, and sex is painful.

Trichomonas is known as a parasite passed on during intercourse. With Trichomonas the discharge is foamy, severely itchy, yellow and has a foul odor.

Vulvitis is an allergic reaction, fungal or bacterial infection that brings on a vulva inflammation. Vulvitis shows signs of swelling, itching, and redness with fluid-filled blisters in the vagina.

Bacterial Vaginosis– grows and thrives when vaginal pH is disturbed and thrown out of balance. A woman must be careful if she has anal sex. If fecal matter enters the vaginal tract, this bacteria can bring upon Bacterial Vaginosis and develop moderate itchiness and have a foul, fishy odor with white discharge. It may be surprising to many, but men get yeast infections! That’s right. As much as 13-16% of men get yeast infections. If a man has exposed himself, and had unprotected intercourse with an infected partner he can develop a Candida Penis Infection.

male-yeast-infection-300x300

Candida Penis Infection infects the tip of the penis. And this infection is like a ping-pong effect. When one person gets treated, the other re-infects that partner and the infection keeps bouncing back and forth between them. This infection can cause: prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), frequent urination, an inability to urinate, a dribble effect when urinating, and even a loss of sexual interest. Men who are most at risk are those with Diabetes.

So what are the causes of yeast infections? Using antibiotics for long periods of time, or prolonged exposure to antibiotics that weaken the immune system and cause imbalanced hormones. Spermicidal cream Nonoxynol 9 which aggravates Candida infections and kills the good friendly bacteria that protects the vagina and support good balanced pH. Candida is also caused by birth control pills and steroid drugs, eating TOO MUCH bread, a high sugar, refined carbohydrate rich diet, and a lifestyle very short on rest.

Eliminate the following foods for 4-6 weeks: Sugar and commercial sweeteners (except Xylitol or Stevia), trashed baked goods or gluten bread, dairy products (except for plain organic yogurt or kefir) fried foods, pickled, smoked, dried or cured meats, potatoes (all white, red, sweet) nuts, nut butters, mushrooms, fruits and fruit juices (except grapefruits, lemons, limes, frozen berries) dried or candied fruits, black tea, coffee, carbonated beverages, alcohol, vinegar, ND foods with vinegar. Avoid smoking tobacco, steroid drugs, antibiotics, and birth control pills.

DO EAT: steamed veggies (broccoli, onions, etc.) organic meats like poultry, seafood (well-cooked, not raw) olive oil.

When you use the recommended natural therapy program in 1-2 weeks you will feel the body begin to balance itself; foul odors are reduced or eliminated, vaginal discharge is diminished, irritations are reduced or eliminated, etc. Be careful of eating the wrong foods again too quickly. It will most likely be best to keep them at a reduced amount or cut them completely from your diet. Your body will let you know what does not agree with you…

Use the following combination of natural therapy solutions to treat yeast:

CANDIDA CLEAR

PARA CLEANSE (this must be used if dealing with Trichomonas)

INTESTINAL SYSTEM PACK

SILVER SHIELD GEL (apply inside the mouth and/or on yeast/candida sores in mouth from infection, apply to affected skin area, or insert vaginally until finished, about 2 weeks).

Use the above natural therapy supplements for at least 4-6 weeks.

Low Sex Drive? 10 Signs That Indicate Why You Might Have A Low Libido

Women on Top: How Real Life Has Changed Women'...

Is your Libido Low? Libido has definitely dropped. And this is a serious concern for most who are suffering with a low sex drive. The latest statistics for America, show that 43% of women have some type of sexual dysfunction, and 52% of men between the ages of 40 and 70 have impotence problems. Did you know that our poor nutrient, unhealthy diets, over use of drugs, stimulants and rushed, high pressured lifestyles lead to low energy and lack of time for love-making. After all, sex is significant part of our lives.

 10 Questions to Ask Yourself

  1. If you’re a women in menopause, have you gained unusual weight or have you lost your normal energy?
  2. If you’re a man going through andropause, have erections become slow and difficult or painful?
  3. Have you become dissatisfied with the path your life is taking?
  4. Are you depressed?
  5. Have you been under a lot of stress for a long period of time?
  6. Do you feel unattractive or that you have lost your looks because of age change?
  7. Has your diet changed to fast foods on the go?
  8. Do you rely on prescription drugs to get through the day?
  9. Was your childhood marked by physical abuse or trauma?
  10. Do you have a serious nervous illness? (MS, Parkinson’s or diabetes)

Why use a natural therapy method to help? Herbs have a century-old reputation for effectiveness in working with the body towards health and enhancement. If you are taking prescription drugs, take a look at the information. Most of them have side effects that cause impaired sex drive. New studies show that an active sexual life can make you look up to 7 to 10 years YOUNGER! So, with that said… Get active!

Use the following natural therapy recommendations to help with sexual energy, stamina, emotional health, and hormonal balance. Use for at least a minimum of 90 days to correct imbalances:

19 Symptoms That Indicate Your Adrenals Need Support

adrenal-glands

Newly updated August 2, 2016

This gland is your gland, this gland is my gland.

Endocrine glands secrete hormones into the bloodstream. These chemical messengers have specialized tasks in the body and control a myriad of bodily functions, including sleep, growth, sexual development, metabolism, tissue repair and more. Glands can become weakened by stress, a poor diet, chemicals in our food and air, and many other factors. Such weakness can manifest as low energy, low sexual desire and other imbalances.

Facts about the glandular system, especially, your adrenal glands:

  1. The adrenal glands, two of the most important glands in our body, are the size of grapes.
  2. The adrenal glands can be weakened by physical and environmental stressors.
  3. Weak adrenal glands are often a cause of low sex drive (low libido) and insomnia.
  4. The glandular system relies on trace minerals for specific nutrition, but food processing often eliminates them from our diet.

How do you know if your adrenal glands need support? Do you have:

  1. constant fatigue?
  2. low blood pressure?
  3. hard, pebble-like stools or constipation?
  4. unusually low sex drive?
  5. craving for salt or salty foods?
  6. mood swings, especially anxiety, panic, or phobia?
  7. feeling colder than those around you?
  8. problems with memory, focus or concentration?
  9. chronic pain in the lower neck and upper back?
  10. nervousness?
  11. inability to concentrate and or confusion?
  12. drinking caffeinated beverages on a daily basis?
  13. extreme sensitivity to odors and/or noises?
  14. lack of the sensation of fullness after eating?
  15. aches and pains of limbs, unrelated to exertion?
  16. mood swings?
  17. vulnerability to food reactions/allergies?
  18. abdominal fat, love handles, a pot belly, etc.?
  19. feelings of apathy? (Feeling that you are not good enough?  Feel like not doing much of anything? Feel like you can’t do things? Feel as though there is no point in doing most things?)

If you answered yes to 4 (four) or more on this list, it may be time to consider using a natural therapy to build the adrenal glands.  If 6 (six) or more items are checked, your adrenal health is likely poor and now is the time to start taking a natural therapy to support your adrenal glands.  Glandular supplements and adrenal supplements help improve overall glandular system health.

Help your adrenal glands and glandular system reach optimum health with the following supplement I recommend:

The Glandular System pack
This pack provides comprehensive support for the glandular system. It contains cello packets with the following supplements:

Master Gland Formula®
Provides vitamins and herbal nutrients to nourish all of the glands of the body.

AdaptaMax
Helps the body cope with stressful conditions. Supports positive mood and promotes energy.

Adrenal Support
Helps maintain normal adrenal function. Supports the body’s ability to manage stress.

Each packet of the The Glandular System pack contains 1 Master Gland Formula capsule, 2 AdaptaMax capsules and 1 Adrenal Support capsule.

Start your path to a healthier glandular system.

Sex, Women & Looking Younger
