Valentine’s Day is here and sex
may be on your mind… but for all the wrong reasons. Your sex drive is in park, and the last thing
on your mind is physical intimacy with your partner. This lack of sexual desire can be
misinterpreted as lack of interest in your relationship.
So, think about it. As a woman, have you been feeling less
receptive to sex? Have you noticed
feeling less sensual, or that your sex drive has diminished? If so, you’re not alone. This is a major complaint of many women
experiencing Hormone Imbalance, which directly affects your libido.
It’s common knowledge that
Testosterone plays a significant role in both men and women when it comes to a healthy
libido. But one of the more common
deficiencies in women is Estrogen, which plays as much a role in a woman’s sex
life as Testosterone.
In my practice, I have seen women
with optimal levels of both hormones who still suffer with a low sex drive. Hormones are much more complicated than just
pinpointing one symptom to one hormone.
If you suspect low libido is affecting
your quality of life, you do have a way to find out if your hormones are out of
balance. In my practice, I offer a very
simple and extremely accurate saliva test which, when analyzed by the lab,
produces a clear picture of what’s going on inside your body. If a problem is identified, I then work with
my clients on an individual basis to balance their system, not with drugs, but
naturally. Sometimes adjustments are as
simple as slight changes in diet. Other
times, it’s a little more involved.
Either way, the end result can be life changing.
Many separations and divorces
happen when women reach mid-40’s to mid-50’s.
I often wonder how many of these troubled relationships could have been prevented
if women had their hormones checked. If what I described sounds familiar,
please know that I’m here to help.
