People who remain sexually active for longer are more mobile, vibrant and sustain their youth longer!

Your libido is directly related to the health of your circulation. 

75% of the adults in my practice report no to minimal libido. 

This is a huge problem!

When I inquire further I find…

fatigue and pain with sex are the main reasons mostly women but some men give up on intimacy all together.

Many others tell me they don’t sync well with their partner and haven’t explored options to improve their situation because they didn’t know where to find information that wasn’t offensive in nature. 

Talking about what goes on in the bedroom is still taboo for so many.

Society has made it that way and it’s sad. 

What goes on in the bedroom has the potential to impact your mental and physical health as well as your longevity. 

I’m biased here but I believe doctor’s should be having open conversations with their patients about their sexual health. 

There are quality resources out there to improve intimacy and deepen relationships. 

Dare I say, the use of antidepressants may go down if bedroom connections were enriched!

I recently did a podcast interview with Susan Bratton, an intimacy expert to millions…

…and I had quite a few ah ha moments!

Did you know that women need at least 20 minutes to get their tissues down below filled with blood to fully lubricate and get ready?

And that the entire vaginal area needs blood flow, just like that of a male’s tissue?

If you’re struggling with hypothyroidism, adrenal issues, low or high blood pressure, stress, fatigue or poor circulation, these things may increase readiness time.

The same goes for men and their ability to sustain full circulation down below as well. 

Jumping into things quickly and getting it over fast because you’re “taking one for the team” isn’t doing you any favors!

In fact, it may be a source of trauma physically and emotionally.

The more it builds the less libido you’ll have. 

Chinese Medicine has the best explanation for all of this that I’ve learned to date.

In Asian Medicine, the liver is in control of blood movement and the heart pumps the blood. 

If your liver isn’t healthy due to overload of toxins from diet and environment, chronic stress, fatty liver or cirrhosis circulation will be compromised. 

Emotions are heavily connected to the liver…

…stress, anger, agitation, frustration, overwhelm all have the potential to decrease liver blood flow thanks to the fight or flight vagus nerve response.

Pair everyday life stress with a liver that’s overloaded and it’s amazing anyone has a libido these days. 

On top of all that, your skin is aging and what you see on your face is a direct reflection of your vaginal tissue. 

Wrinkles on the face = wrinkles down there!

Because the vaginal lining without sufficient circulation is like a deflated balloon with many folds instead of a straight tube with smooth walls…

… penetration can become painful when bumping up against the folds.

Pair thinning tissue and reduced circulation preventing adequate lubrication and you have a host of issues that can cause pain.

Many women report that lubrication alone doesn’t always help reduce pain. 

Yes! That’s because rubbing against deflated folds of the tissue doesn’t feel good. 

The good news is, there are so many things available for women these days!

While there’s not a blue or yellow pill for ladies, there are lots of other options to help support circulation and lubrication!

In my podcast with Susan Bratton, she introduced me to quite a few different products…

..from CBD based vaginal healing melts by Foria to a red light therapy wand for tissue rejuvenation by JoyLux!

But what stood out more than any of those products is that Susan has free videos explaining the most common issues in the bedroom!

She’s sharing valuable information that I believe could build stronger intimate relationships and boost longevity at the same time!

Plus she’s answering questions that many are too embarrassed to ask when it comes to issues down below with aging, techniques and finding true pleasure in the bedroom.

Unless you’ve done your own exploration into expanding your intimacy and improving your relationship in the bedroom it’s likely you’re operating off of what society is portraying as “normal” in this department. 

Most adults learn what to do in the bedroom from partners, movies and pornography. 

None of which tend to be reliable when it comes to becoming a better lover and building intimacy. 

I hear women say quite often that they don’t care if they ever have sex again.

While others tell me that they have never enjoyed sex and prefer to avoid it all together. 

If this resonates with you or you’re wanting to improve your intimacy with your partner I encourage you to check out Susan Bratton’s website Better Lover- HERE – and initiate a conversation with your partner. 

You’re never too old to learn some new tips, restore intimacy and boost your longevity!

My podcast with Susan Bratton comes out tomorrow – episode 417 of The Health Fix Podcast – stay tuned!
