Natural Ways to Boost Your Libido
Sexual Dysfunction Clinics Lead the Way to Sexual Wellness
Everyone, during the course of their lives, will experience a dip in their libido, where they have less desire or perhaps endure an inability to perform to their liking.
A number of factors contribute to a lower sex drive, some of which do not require medical intervention. Instead, you can consider some natural ways to reignite your passion.
But if these at-home methods aren’t working for you, then a visit to the sexual dysfunction clinic at Restorative Health is in order. We’re located near the major U.S. cities of Omaha, Columbus, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Atlanta.
Here are a few ways to boost your libido, naturally, plus a few ways a medical provider can do the same for you, with the latest breakthrough advances.
Cut Back on Alcohol Consumption
One drink can put you at ease and get you in the mood. But too many drinks results in an inability to perform or erectile dysfunction.
Too many drinks also can inhibit your ability to orgasm, which can feel defeating if you already struggle with intimacy.
In addition to cutting back on alcohol consumption, a variety of all-natural treatments from your body’s own plasma can help you climax more easily and readily. For example, men may find our P-shots and Trimix injections helpful, and the O-shot for women can help increase orgasms and pleasure. Similarly, hormone therapy may help relieve symptoms of low libido.
You can get these treatments after consulting with a medical provider at the Restorative Health location nearest you.
Improve Communication with Your Partner
After an argument with your partner, you may not feel in the mood to make up. And the desire might not return for days or even weeks!
Keep communication flowing with your partner and help each other get the emotional closure you need to become intimate again and to feel positively about your relationship. If you can’t do it alone, you could consider seeking professional assistance from a marital counselor, if it’s agreeable to you both.
Consume an Aphrodisiac
An aphrodisiac is considered a libido-boosting food. Many couples swear by them as a way to get things started, despite little evidence supporting their effectiveness. They may work, in part, because of the vitamins and minerals they contain. But still, it’s worth a try in the early stages of your struggle to perform sexually.
These foods are long-considered aphrodisiacs:
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention chocolate as an aphrodisiac. Chocolate prompts your brain to release phenylethylamine and serotonin into your body, which can trigger sexual desire.
Work on Your Self Esteem
If you have low self-esteem, perhaps from focusing on the parts of your body that you personally dislike, then it makes sense that that would impede your sexual performance.
When you spend intimate moments thinking only about the things you don’t like about your body, you’re not thinking about the pleasure that lies ahead.
Boost your self-esteem by intentionally thinking about all the good things about your body and about you as a person. It’s likely what you don’t like about your body is not a turn-off to your partner anyway.
Reduce Your Stress
Stress drastically affect your sex drive, no matter how healthy you are otherwise. Women, particularly, feel the effects of stress in this area of life.
To relieve stress, try getting involved in activities shown to help reduce it. Many people enjoy:
Tai chi or yoga
You’ll also find improvements in your sex life when you get plenty of sleep. You need sleep to boost your energy, but sleep also plays a key role in your mental and emotional health. Missing hours of sleep does you no favors for your libido.
