A woman’s libido is the desire for sexual intercourse. It is influenced by a woman’s self-worth, how she values her partner, and especially hormonal balance. All three are often needed for a woman to be “interested.” Sometimes, it is only a matter of one of them being out of balance.
Frigidity is the lack of sexual desire. Common causes include exhaustion, poor self-esteem, or an unhappy relationship. A significant cause may be hormone imbalance from childbirth, chemical birth control or other hormonal changes.
Hormonal imbalances can cause a wide array of symptoms such as excessive bleeding, menstrual cramping, breast tenderness, bloating and more. Emotional symptoms may include anger, irritability, anxiety, depression, memory problems, concentration problems, crying, low libido and sleep problems. While all these symptoms are common, they are not necessary just because you are of the female gender.
Modern medicine often uses testosterone to promote sexual excitement. While often successful, testosterone can promote aggression, anger, irritability, facial hair growth, and acne. As with most pharmaceutical drugs, they have side effects, and may create dependency.
First, clean up your diet, eliminating tobacco, coffee, and black tea. Avoid animal fats and products as they are full of chemicals that affect your hormonal balance. Then get some help from your plant friends—herbs.
Create better hormonal health naturally with herbs, cell salts, and homeopathy. Try using the herb Vitex (Agnus castus), also known as Chaste Tree Berry, with the cell salt solution. While medicine is largely uninformed about herbs, scientists have done quite a bit of research on Vitex.
This research shows that it may be as effective as an anti-depressant drug without the side effects. Vitex has been shown to be safe and effective in balancing estrogen and progesterone levels. And for just under $8.00 a month, it’s a bargain. Further research shows it is effective for endometriosis and poly-ovarian cystic syndrome. Wow! And it is invaluable for all ages of women from puberty to post menopause.
Make sure your diet is free from tobacco, alcohol, coffee, etc, to insure proper blood flow to your female organs.
