Seven simple tips for women to boost their libido
#1: Consult a professional
Work with an integrative physician, nurse practitioner, or naturopath who can help you sort out whether you have underlying medical, nutritional, and lifestyle imbalances that might be dampening your desire. Your care provider can also help you with treatments for dryness, pain
, and other physical obstacles to enjoying your sex life.
#2: Address the stressors in your life
Tend to stress
with relaxation techniques, improved sleep
, and necessary lifestyle changes.
#3: Deal with the side effects of medications
Cease and desist alcohol overconsumption. An occasional glass of red wine, however, can stimulate desire.
#4: Get yourself feeling sexy again
Do at least two things every day to make yourself feel sexy, a surefire way to fan your flame! This can be wearing slinky underwear (even if only you know about it), wearing red, treating yourself to a delicious sensual bath or … you name it!
#5: Consider seeing a therapist
Get into individual and/or relationship counseling, or work with a sex therapist. A quick Google search will help you find sex therapists in your area.
#6: Fill up on aphrodisiacs
Use foods, herbs, and supplements that safely enhance libido. Many of these work by supporting your nervous system or regulating your hormones. Foods rich in zinc, including oysters, pumpkin seeds, toasted wheat germ, and dark chocolate boost libido, as do maca, ginseng, shatavari, ginkgo, and oatstraw. All of these may be taken alone or in combination, or as liquid extracts, capsules, or pills.
#7: Get meditating
Yoga poses can help stimulate your libido and enhance pelvic health. Exercise
in general can invigorate your sexual energy, in fact.
A healthy sex life is an important part of overall health. But remember, there is no external measure of what counts as a healthy sex drive. What counts is what is healthy and satisfying to you.
