As a part of aging it is natural for men to lose sexual drive when they hit the late 60s or early 70s. However an abrupt loss of sexual drive is not uncommon and men who have underlying diseases like prostate problems, hormonal imbalances due to endocrine dysfunction, testicular atrophy or due to concomitant medications do experience a waning sexual drive. The best possible solution is to discuss frankly with your physician or urologist who can identify any underlying causes and get you back on the road to a satisfying sexual life.
Depression, general fatigue and stress can and do lead to loss of sexual drive all of a sudden. These are all correctable causes and should be attended to promptly. Overall well-being is critical for a good sexual health. Many men are resorting to drugs like Viagra and related products despite knowing that these medications are associated with significant side effects. The natural way to regain sexual drive is perhaps the simplest and safest.
Natural cures for low sexual drive address mainly:
1. Stress control.
2. Low Testosterone levels.
3. Overall sexual health and general well-being.
Sexual health is directly related to overall nutrition. Food, thus, takes prime importance in treating a low sexual drive through the natural way. Onion, ginger, garlic, and pepper are all natural aphrodisiacs. Nuts like almonds and pistachios are natural boosters due to their Vitamin E content and are useful in managing erectile dysfunction and impotence. Low Testosterone levels can be improved with the following foods:
Raw oysters, avocados, bananas, salmon, asparagus, nuts, cheese and brown rice.
The problem of erectile dysfunction is quite complex and any patient who has this would be hesitant to involve in any gainful sexual activities which further hinders the sexual drive. Nature has blessed us with herbs like ginseng and gingko biloba for conditions like erectile dysfunction. These herbs improve blood flow, increase anti-oxidants and improve overall well-being. Ginseng also acts as a virility tonic, a sexual booster, and normalizes production of hormones.
The bottom line in dealing with a low sexual drive has to be leading an active, stress-free life and to maintain a nutritious diet. If you are a smoker try to give it up for the sake of your sexual life. The added benefits of quitting smoking will only make you more determined!
