 Treat Low Libido Naturally

Libido taken a serious nose dive? I liken sex drive to the canary in the coal mine of your overall physical and mental health.

After years of helping people who’ve lost their spark or mojo. I know that lousy sex drive, no energy, poor sleep, skin problems, and bloating aren’t symptoms that can be fixed fast with a tablet or an injection. They are your body telling you something is wrong with your hormones.

4 Causes of Low Sex Drive

Overall 70 percent of low sex drive is due to misfiring hormones. Of course, there are other considerations, such as relationship issues, communication problems, mismatch of expectations and style. These all need to be explored and renegotiated for a greater sexual connection.

Although, a lesser known truth is that your hormones start to change when you’re in your twenties, not just in menopause. Your hormones operate in an intricate maze of biofeedback loops, whereby when one is out it creates a domino effect down the line.

As you take on more in your life, your cortisol, or main stress hormone rises and starts to rob your other sex hormones. Testosterone and DHEA begin to decline, and so does your adaptability to stress. Your oestrogen and/or progesterone can drop, causing you to have oestrogen dominance or PMS. You may experience high testosterone, such as with polycystic ovarian syndrome or low testosterone, as a result of excess stress or aging. Or your thyroid may start to cough and splutter.

Physical issues that can cause low libido include low testosterone, prescription medicines, too little or too much exercise, and alcohol and drug use. Psychological issues can include depression, stress, and problems in your relationship. – WebMD

I vary from raw varieties such as loving Earth to quality cocoa powders such as Callebaut or Valrhona that make delicious hot chocolates. Cocoa contains beta-carotene, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, chromium and in particular magnesium that can help with bone mineralization, muscle contraction and immune function.
