Great Sex Naturally

Thursday, March 14, 2013

If you want to powerfully transform your sexual energy and boost your overall health at the same time then you definitely want to hear my interview with Dr. Laurie Steelsmith.

You may already be enjoying an active sex life and perhaps would like to enhance it or you might be facing a specific sexual health challenge and want to find a natural solution. Great Sex Naturally is the book you’ve been waiting for.

Dr. Steelsmith explained that sexual pleasure and good health are profoundly connected. She talked about sexual energy being a powerful life force that gives women their ability to create spark and power in life. Unfortunately, many women flock to their doctors asking, “What happened to my sex drive? Will I ever care if I have sex again?” Somehow, it loses its magic and blamed on getting older as if our libido should naturally fade. Dr. Steelsmith says there are so many things that can be done to create a strong libido.

After all, a healthy sex life is really the foundation of good health that is based on what we eat, how often we exercise and detoxify our bodies. You’ve heard it before, “Garbage in equals Garbage out.” Taking the toxins out of the body is the first step to enhance our overall health and wellbeing increasing our sexual pleasure in the process.

Dr. Steelsmith talked about foods you can eat that will boost your libido and energy levels. They include:

• Ground flaxseed

• Hemp

• Chia seed

• Pumpkin seeds

They are full of Omega-3 essential fatty acids that help hydrate the skin and cell membranes including the tissues in the vulva and vagina. When women go into peri-menopause (the 10 years leading up to menopause), estrogen levels start to decline leading to the thinning of these tissues.


We also talked about good circulation being so important for the entire body including the genitalia that will help increase a woman’s libido. The following foods contain flavonoids that help protect the blood vessel walls and increase circulation. They actually help the liver to break down naturally occurring hormones into friendly forms that increase sexual energy. These super libido foods include:

• Acai juice

• Blueberry juice

• Green Tea

• Mangosteen

• Pomegranates

• Broccoli

• Cauliflower

• Cabbage

• Brussels Sprouts

• Shitake mushrooms

We need to do everything we can to reduce inflammation throughout our entire body for overall health and wellness. All of these foods can be incorporated into our day quite easily.

Choose green tea instead of coffee or add shitake mushrooms to your next stir-fry. Roast vegetables in the oven tossed in a little olive oil and herbs for a quick and easy side dish to any meal. All of these foods help lower blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health making it easier to bring oxygen to the body and help with circulation for a strong libido.


When it comes to libido, Dr. Steelsmith readily admits that women need both the feminine and passionate aspects or the yin and yang of sexual energy. One of the best herbs that help nourish this aspect of chi is Cordyceps – a rare mushroom that has been cherished for thousands of years in Chinese medicine.

It is known for being a potent sexual tonic and aphrodisiac that increases endurance and energy.

Many times it is combined with Chinese ginseng that is helpful for women, especially those dealing with hot flashes.

It makes them less hot in that department. Appropriately named, Horny Goat Root or Weed helps fortify the yang energy and when combined with herbs like catuaba, the combination help increase sexual desire while reducing fatigue and nervous tension.

It is important to treat the entire body by cleansing and detoxing using hypoallergenic foods that will jumpstart your health and sex drive. Detoxing can help get rid of unfriendly bacteria, yeast and even parasites that will enhance elimination, weight loss and libido.

Jumpstart your sex life today – naturally.
