Have you lost your mojo?
If it’s not just Valentine’s Day turning you off, you could be suffering from a low libido. Here’s how to boost your sex drive and feel great in bed again.
We all have days when we’re not in the mood for sex. But for some it’s not just the pressure of Valentine’s Day – it’s all year round.
It’s something I see a lot in clinic. For women, having sex is often far more complicated than just feeling “in the mood”. When we’re spinning so many plates (from children, work, partners and social life, not to mention caring for elderly parents), making love is often last on the ‘to-do’ list.
But from what I’ve seen with my clients, I can say the majority of low sex drive is due to misfiring hormones. The good news is that there are ways to resolve hormonal imbalances and I can help you get your mojo back!
Turn “not tonight” into every night…
You can also try eating these six sexual energy-boosting foods to turn that ‘not tonight’ into every night…
BROCCOLI – eating this vitamin-C rich vegetable has been shown to boost circulation and sex drive.
WATERMELON – this contains lycopene, citrulline and beta-carotene, which relax blood vessels and creates a natural Viagra effect.
AVOCADO – packed with nutritious goodies, including desire-boosting potassium and folic acid, which helps with stamina. They also contain vitamin B6, which research shows can decrease symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (such as fatigue, bloating and irritability). This might make it easier for you to feel “in the mood”.
EGGS – one of nature’s superfoods, bursting with B vitamins, including B6 that helps balance hormones and beat stress – which means you will be more in the mood.
STEAK – women who have a high sex drive often have higher levels of the ‘male’ hormone testosterone. So fill up on steak (good quality grass-fed source) – it’s rich in zinc, known to boost libido by blocking an enzyme that converts testosterone to the ‘female’ hormone oestrogen.
MACA – a libido-boosting herb from Peru that is proven to boost sex drive as well as fertility, thanks to its high iodine and zinc levels. Research into maca has also found it can relieve symptoms associated with the perimenopause, including lack of vaginal lubrication and hot flushes. You can eat maca as a supplement in tablet form or in a powder, which you can add to cereal, soup, yoghurt or a smoothie.
