Low Libido

Chronic Pain Lexington KY Couple

Low libido is a problem that everyone faces at some point in their lives. It can be extremely frustrating and disappointing for both partners when one of them is in the mood, and the other is totally or partially disconnected, physically and/or emotionally. There is a myriad of reasons for low libido, and no two individuals have the exact same problem, or the same outlook.

We do know that a significant number of patients have a low sex drive due to the problems associated with their lower torso. This is a fact in which they may not even realize. The lumbar spine is the channel through which nerve endings and roots branch out towards the thighs and hips. Thus, the lumbar spine has a profound connection with sexual stimulation, and the performance of our sexual organs, and our integrative chiropractic team is able to help.

Common problems related to low libido

Both men and women are impacted by numerous sexual disorders, which can make their sexual relationship a dull, painful, or boring activity. We must be honest with ourselves and admit that problems such as premature ejaculation, infertility, miscarriages, erectile dysfunction, and low sex drive not only hinders the relationship, it affects our overall health and sense of well-being. Lifestyle choices also have a lot to do with low libido.

The quick fix

Unfortunately, we approach low libido as we do many other health issues these days… we look for the quick fix. Many people are convinced that pills are the best solution to restore a healthy sex life, and they think that all their problems will go away with the help of a pill. This unfortunately is the by-product of prescription drugs and medicines being marketed to people on television and even by their doctors. Some of the most common dangers of prolonged pharmaceutical use are:

  • Sleep disturbance
  • Weakness
  • Loss of sexual potency
  • Addiction or dependency on medication
  • Circulatory system damage
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Like many pharmaceuticals, the best-case scenario for relying on a pill to increase libido, is that it can be just as harmful as it is helpful. The use of natural herbs is recommended when it is necessary to increase blood flow to your reproductive organs.

Natural remedies

There are several natural remedies that can assist your body when blood flow or body chemistry is abnormal. You can use natural herbs and supplements integrated with chiropractic care. Consider the following:

  • Yohimbe
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Maca Powder
  • Ginseng
  • Horny goat weed
  • Gingko Biloba
  • L-Argenine

These herbs contain all the vitamins and essential substances that the human reproductive system requires to perform at optimum levels. Be sure to consult with your doctor before taking any of these products. Use caution, as herbal products are powerful, and can also have side effects if misused or abused. In addition, increasing numbers of patients are discovering that chiropractic help is an effective approach to increasing sexual drive for men and women. The goal is to provide treatments that will boost neural flow to the pelvic cavity.
