Worried you haven’t been getting any action lately?  Are you always too tired to make love to your partner? Scared that your partner might leave you because of it?  You may be experiencing sexual dysfunction.

Low libido, or hypoactive sexual drive disorder, is a deficiency or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity. This is considered a disorder if it causes problems for the patient or problems in the patient’s relationships.  In a recent study in the United States, about 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men have admitted having sexual difficulty in one way or another.  Lack of libido occurs more in women than in men.  Men who have erectile dysfunction do not necessarily have low libido.

How often does low sexual drive occur?The American Medical Association has estimated that several million US women suffer from what doctors there call’female sexual arousal disorder’ (FSAD).  In the UK, family planning clinics and related clinics see quite large numbers of women who complain of low libido. Our estimate is that several hundred thousand women in Britain are troubled by lack of sex drive.

Low libido in men is far less common than erectile dysfunction.  One study showed that for every fifteen men who reported having erectile dysfunction, only one of them had low sexual desire.  Most men with lack of libido can still achieve erections, but have lost only the desire to have sex.

What causes low libido?

For both men and women, causes are divided into physical and psychological concerns. Physical causes include:

  • Anemia.  This more commonly affects women because of iron loss during periods.
  • Alcoholism.
  • Drug abuse.
  • Major diseases such as diabetes.
  • Obesity
  • Hyperprolactinaemia.   This is a rare disorder where the pituitary gland produces too much of the hormone prolactin.
  • Post-partum.  This is the loss of libido that often starts after childbirth. It is almost certainly linked to hormonal  changes that occur at this time. The general stress and trauma of childbirth also plays a part.
  • Prescribed drugs, particularly tranquillisers.
  • Other hormone abnormalities.
  • Low testosterone level – contrary to what many people think, this is rare.

Psychological causes include:

  • depression
  • stress and overwork
  • anxiety
  • hang-ups from childhood
  • past sexual abuse or rape
  • latent homosexuality
  • serious relationship problems with the partner
  • difficult living conditions

Here are some tips to recover your lost urge.

  • Leave work stress at the office.  Don’t bring it with you at home.  Time at home should be spent resting and relaxing.
  • Avoid engaging in vices like smoking, drinking, and using drugs.  Not only will it benefit your sex life, it’ll improve your overall health.
  • Relax yourself before engaging in sexual activities.
  • Family counseling helps for couples undergoing serious relationship problems.
  • Consult your doctor if natural interventions fail.  They will be more qualified to give you prescriptions or safe suggestions on what to do in this case.

Now that we understand the underlying causes the affects both men & women’s sexual health and have pointed out ways to replenish your lost sexual drive.  Try them and see what works for you.

In fact, more than 100 million Americans do not get a full 7 – 8 hours sleep every night. Last year over 26 million prescriptions were written to help Americans sleep. Prescription drugs can have side effects, in most cases the dosages need to be upped to get a full night sleep the longer one is on them and most people become addicted to prescription sleep aids making it so they cant stop taking the them unless they don’t want to sleep for a few days.

First try to get to bed at the same time every night your body runs on an internal clock and if you don’t get to sleep every night at the same time you can through that clock out of whack so a regular bedtime routine is good practice even if you aren’t tired try to lay down maybe read a book or listen to some relaxing music. Lifestyle choices will affect your sleep as well such as smoking, illicit drug use and pharmaceuticals, alcohol and caffeine; try to limit your intake of such things for better sleep. Next in line is nutrition, a combination of herbs and vitamins can help naturally relax the body and mind to help one get better sleep all night long. Green tea is an herb that is loaded with the amino acid l-Theanine, studies have shown l-Theanine to can help calm the brain, given today’s high passé lifestyles most of us are still thinking about work or what needs to go on your grocery list while laying in bed, l-Theanine helps calm your thoughts for a better nights sleep.

The above listed herbs can be found in combination by several manufacturers such as Source naturals and Planetary Formulas to name two. Herbal supplements can create a natural relaxing and stress relieving environment for the body before bedtime.

Finally, there is melatonin which is a hormone naturally produced by the body. Melatonin is secreted from the pineal gland and is only released in darkness during sleep in healthy people. Unfortunately melatonin declines as we age and supplementation might be needed to help bring back normal sleep at night.

Fitness refers to ability of the body to function with vigor and alertness. Nutrition refers to the nurturing of our body, in our ability to keep it healthy and functioning as it is supposed to do. Our ability to provide the body with all the necessary food, vitamins, and minerals so that we continue to thrive in our daily life processes. But do we know if we are really fit? How do we tell?

First, you might want to look at your exercise habits, if there are any. If there aren’t any exercise routines to examine, no fitness. Everyone, no matter what their age, benefits from exercise. It keeps our bodies conditioned, our mental sharpness working at top speed, and thanks to the physical aspect, we get a boost to our cardio health, extra calorie burn, and more oxygen to those cells!

Do you take in more calories than your body needs? Are you supplementing your vitamins and minerals to make sure you are getting your recommended daily allowances? If you’re not making the most basic of efforts to take care of your nutritional needs, you aren’t a fit individual. You may not look sick, you may not have any noticeable symptoms of ill-health, but you’re not the fit and toned individual you could be.

What about the stress levels in your life? Do work in an environment with high levels of stress? Is your personal life a source of comfort or does it add to your stress levels? Do you engage in some form of stress-relieving activity? Stress is the number on contributor to heart attacks and strokes, since they manage to speed up the affect of the real culprits. Stress is basically an out of control situation for most adults today. We manage to schedule every moment of our free time, and leave ourselves with no time for quiet reflection, or time to deal with life’s unexpected emergencies.

Fitness requires us to examine more than just our exercise routine. The mere definition of fitness refers to the body’s ability to meet physical stresses. That includes coping with our day to day life, getting from the beginning of the day to the end, without being worn completely out. In order to be truly fit, we find ways to rid ourselves of built up stress, the kind that begins to affect our muscles, muscle tone, and composition. Massages are the best cure for ridding our bodies of the stress buildup that can occur, even with exercise regimens and detract from our overall fitness.

Exercises that demand total body involvement are the best for maintaining and improving your level of fitness most effectively. Running, swimming, jogging, dancing, cycling, and very brisk walking are some of the more popular total body involvement exercises.

There are so many occasions to stop and question our efforts at maintaining optimal health, that we usually don’t even take the time to begin the examination. But it is beneficial to our overall health, the quality and quantity of our life, to make every effort to be fit, healthy, individuals.

How to make drink water a little more pleasant or interesting?

You probably already know that it’s important to drink enough water. A minimum of eight glasses of water a day is recommended. You should aim for more if it is really hot, or you are working out and sweating a lot. Getting enough water in your body will prevent you from getting dehydrated.

According to WEBMD the early signs of dehydration are increased thirst, dry mouth, sticky saliva and reduced urine output with dark yellow urine. You may also experience a lack of energy and a headache.

None of these sound very fun. I know it is hard sometimes to drink that much water; especially when sodas and coffee tempt us. However, to stay healthy and feel great, we should strive to drink those eight glasses of water a day.

Here are a few tips to help you remember to drink the water, and to make it a little more pleasant or interesting.

1. Keep a Log

This can be as simple as a little piece of paper on the fridge, or a page in your day planner. Just make a little checkmark, or dash on the piece of paper every time you drink a glass of water. The log will help you keep track of how much water you have had in any given day. You’ll also be surprised how motivating it is to try to get those eight little checkmarks on there every day. Another idea would be to use little stickers instead.

2. Add Some Lemon Juice

I tend to get bored with drinking just water after a few days. Change things up and add a little flavor by adding a teaspoon or less of lemon to your water. You can also try some other fruit juices. Just make sure you are still drinking mainly water. Just a splash of juice should be enough to make things interesting and give the water some flavor without adding a lot of sugar and calories.

3. Try Some Club Soda

If you are craving the fizz of a soda, try some Club Soda. Most brands have a little too much fizz for me. I end up watering them down with – guess what – water. If you want to get really fancy, check your local grocery store for flavored club sodas. Alternatively, you can also add a splash of fruit juice to your watered down club soda.

4. Drink Some Water When You Feel Hungry

Unfortunately many of us have gotten so out of tune with our bodies that we feel hungry when we are actually thirsty. If you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water first. You may just be thirsty.

5. Carry A Water Bottle

It’s much easier to drink water when you have it readily available. Carry a bottle of water around with you in the car, at work, while running errands, in the yard, and even while you are working around the house. You’ll be sipping away the water without even noticing it.

6. Drink More If You Are Working Out

We already touched on this, but it bears repeating. Make sure you drink a few extra glasses of water if you work out, or if you spend some time outside while it’s hot. Your body uses and needs more water when it sweats a lot. So don’t forget to fill back up on water during and after your exercise.

Just pay attention to how much you drink and implement some of these ideas if you don’t get the recommended eight glasses of water a day. Your body will thank you for it in the long run.

Do you think we, the human beings have moved significantly further since the Stone Age, so far as our biological systems are concerned? The answer is a big NO. But what about our eating patterns? The less we talk about it the better. Today most of us are on a faulty diet system that is remarkably low on moisture and fiber contents, but extremely high on the fat parts. Add to it the stress and the sedentary lifestyle thanks to professional and other pressures of modern living and you know what the result is; a terrible bowel habit that either manifests in chronic constipation or bouts of diarrhea.

Relax, you are not alone to suffer from these predicaments. Living in the fast track and eating fast foods—this has emerged as one of the major cultural traits of US citizens in the recent years. No wonder then, a sizeable portion of the U.S. population has at least one chronic condition like bloating, abdominal pain, poor skin, nausea and many more that can be directly traced back to the poor health of their colons, the most essential apparatus of body’s food processing system. However, you will be happy to know that despite the severity of these symptoms, they are generally simple and easy to prevent and even cure. A healthy colon is a guarantee for your overall health. Now you can get a clean colon through the proper and regular colon cleansing routine and the benefits you get from subscribing to such a regimen are beyond count. Here we describe the basic benefits that you can enjoy as a result of thorough colon cleansing.

– Improvement of overall Health

As a result of continuous dietary degeneration, the walls and cells of the colon get coated with Fecal matters, slowing down the passage of stools which results into the accumulation of toxins eventually poisoning your entire system. A toxic colon triggers off a number of disorders like cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, colds, influenza and allergies.

A colon cleansing can help you to improve your overall health, by removing the toxins that have been accumulated over time. The digestive system starts functioning in more efficient manner by absorbing more nutrients from the food and rejecting the toxins and as a result, the immune system is improved and the entire system gets benefited from it.

– Preventing Constipation

The primary benefit of colon cleansing is that it helps to prevent constipation. The result of a faulty diet over a long stretch of time is a partial decomposition of waste that finally results in blocked passage. Colon cleansing not only removes undigested waste it also removes the hardened fecal mater that is blocking the passageway of the colon.

– Weight Loss

Most people experience significant weight loss after colon cleansing as it is possible to flush away ten to thirty pounds of stagnant fecal matter from your inside.

These are not all! An increased energy level, Clearer skin and improved concentration are some of the bonus points that you get along with the primary benefits of colon cleansing.

Steroids are a class of natural and synthetic hormones that prop up your cell growth and division. Initially, they were used for the treatment of wasting diseases as cancer and AIDS, as well as problems related to the internal secretion.

Steroids falls under the drugs category that is available only by legal prescription, to treat the situations, which take place when the body produces abnormally less amounts of the testosterone including delayed puberty and powerlessness.

Now-a-days, buying steroids is not an easy task. You require proper recommendation for buying steroids in a lawful manner. There are mainly two ways of buying steroids, from a physician or the black market. Athletes, sports persons, bodybuilders and jocks using steroids for enhancing their performance levels often purchase them illegitimately, which is a crime. The penalties are just too harsh.

In earlier times, it was not difficult to find out a physician who would recommend steroids to athletes. But today, doctors avoid having anything to do with the prescribing of steroids, even for lawful reasons. Due to this, athletes or other jocks have turned up their faces towards black markets for buying steroids.

The other way for buying steroids is thru Internet (online). The abusers use online facility for buying steroids from illicit suppliers. The abusers use them (steroids) despite the evidence that these drugs have physical harms and side effects. It is not fine to use steroids for wrong purposes. You can buy steroids, but for positive use. Use steroids for the purpose for which they are made.

Before buying steroids, you must properly understand their uses, side effects and other related problems. Buying steroids lawfully is not a crime, but using them for wrong purposes is a misdeed.

Steroids are available in varied types, forms, amounts, textures, and colors. It’s due to such diversity that there are more fake drugs on the market than genuine ones. Fake drugs are abundant as they are inexpensive to produce and effortless to forward to unsuspicious muscle-builders or athletes. To an inexpert person fake steroids can be almost identical to the real drug. If you are buying steroids, first you must check the quality and FDA stamp on steroids.

How can sinus infections be prevented?

It is said that around 30 per cent of all people suffer from sinusitis or sinus infection at least once each year. Sinuses are little air pockets inside the skull bones. They are located to either side of the nose, behind and in between the eyes, in the forehead, and behind the head. Sinuses contain mucus that drains into the nasal passageways through pin holes in the sinuses.

A sinus infection happens when the paranasal sinuses on either side of the nose get inflamed. This happens during a cold or an allergy attack, when more histamines are produced in the paranasal sinuses. The inflammation blocks the narrow passageways, making the mucus collect there. This collected mucus soon becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. That’s how a sinus infection begins.

The body produces histamines during allergic reactions. Histamines are neuro-transmitter chemicals. Though histamines are always present in our body, an allergy attack causes more histamines to be released at the site of the allergy attack. When a mosquito bites, for example, histamines are released at the area of the bite making the skin there turn red and itchy. When histamines are released, they cause inflammation and constriction of the muscles.

The symptoms of a sinus infection begin with headache, facial pain, nasal congestion, fever, green or yellow discharge, a heavy face feeling, etc. The infection usually lasts for three weeks or more.

Structural problems such as deviated septum, nasal polyps, etc. are conducive to a sinus infection.

The cure for sinusitis is steam inhalation, nasal irrigation, hot fluids such as tea or chicken soup, and plenty of rest. Aspirin or paracetamol tablets and decongestants are some of the medicines commonly prescribed for sinus infections. If the symptoms continue for more than 48 hours, the pateint should be started on antibiotics or nasal steroids. If you don’t treat the sinus infection pretty early, it could even cause bronchitis and pneumonia and damage the sinuses and cheekbones. You would then have to go for nasal surgery to repair the damage.

When the sinus infection refuses to respond to medication, Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is the most efficient treatment.

Prevention is always better than cure. Stop smoking, because smoking is one of the chief stimulants of sinusitis (sinus infection). Take an oral decongestant or a short course of nasal spray decongestant, especially before air travel. Drink plenty of fluids, so the nasal discharge remains thin, and use antihistamines for controlling allergy attacks. Allergy testing can also increase tolerance towards allergy inducing substances.

An allergic reaction is an unnecessary, and even dangerous, immune response that should be prevented. Antihistamines counteract these immunological inconsistencies. One of the factors that cause our immune system to go awry is the increasing presence of toxins in the environment. These toxins also touch off allergy attacks in the body.

Recent research has found that a new group of sugars called glyconutrients could represent the next frontier in building a robust immune system. Eight of these essential sugars have already been discovered. They play a major role in the some of the body’s most fundamental chemical processes, and also have a role in keeping the human immune system in perfect order.

Consuming glyconutrients through natural dietary supplements could go a long way in regulating histamine-induced disorders and allergies, and in preventing sinus infections.

Are you aware of steroid side effects? — This is the question whose answer should be known to every steroid user in affirmative. Unfortunately, the majority of people who buy steroids are totally ignorant of the possible steroid side effects on their bodies. It’s really stunning that most of the people using steroids are not actually aware of steroid side effects.

It’s really important for every steroid user to know & understand the various steroid side effects before using them. There are many steroid side effects on heart. Steroid abuse has been linked with cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke, which can even happen to steroid abusers under the age of 30. The other steroid side effects are linked to your appearance. In both sexes, steroids can cause male-pattern baldness, cysts, acne, and oily hair and skin.

Many of the steroid side effects increase the risks of infection; sharing needles or using unclean needles to insert steroids puts steroid users at danger for lethal diseases such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis.

A study conducted by Colorado University revealed that the chemical mechanisms of steroids action have changed dramatically over the last 10 years. Estrogens, progestins, and androgens are the sex hormones that inflect reproductive function. The information collected showed that many tissues are targets of steroid hormones plus classical reproductive organs. This evaluation delineates new approaches in apprehending the variety of steroid substances, newly recognized target tissues, structure-function relations of steroid receptors, and, lastly, their genomic and non-genomic activities. Sex-based specific steroid side effects are frequently associated with the different steroid hormone mileu in men compared with women.

Who is health care system best for?

Unfortunately, if you live in the United States, what should be the “Wellness Industry” is now the “Sickness Industry.”

Far more money is to be made by the medical establishment if you are continuously sick than if you are well and healthy.

They give you one outrageously expensive drug to cover up a problem you have, and that drug brings on several other side problems that require you to take more outrageously expensive drugs. And the cycle continues on and on.

Pretty soon, you are more of a drug junkie from legal drugs than the addict on the street corner who seeks out the drug pusher for illegal drugs.

Where did our health care system go wrong? When did the bottom line become more important than the health and wellbeing of the patient?

We have the FDA, which is supposed to protect us. And, occasionally you read that they have taken a drug off the market after it has killed so many people that public outcry forces them to do something. But, for the most part, the FDA seems primarily interested in protecting the billions of dollars in profits raked in every year by the giant drug companies.

Alternative medicines and therapies that have been used with good results for hundreds of years are routinely banned or blocked by FDA actions, apparently because they might cut into drug company or main stream medical profits. Of course, there are Doctors out there with genuine concern for your good health who know about banned medicines and therapies that might actually cure what ails you. But the situation is so bad that they could lose their license and even go to jail if they offer these to you.

Supposedly, we have the best health care system in the world. But who is it best for? Not for you and me, the health care consumers, I’m afraid. From all indications in my experience, it’s all geared toward grabbing as much money from us as  possible, with little real concern for our health and well  being.

So what are we, the health care consumers, supposed to do about this sorry situation?

I believe that the only answer we have is in our own education. In today’s environment, we not only have to survive our medical problems, we have to survive the health care system as well. And, the only way to do that is to learn all we can and try to find the real facts about our problems so we know what we are dealing with.

Now, on the Internet, we are fortunate to have a vast source of information on virtually any subject. When you have a medical problem, don’t take your doctor’s word as gospel. Instead, do a search on the Net and read, read, read.

Chances are, you will find ways of treating your problem without the expensive, dangerous drugs your doctor will prescribe.

A little research will often not only save you and your insurance company a bundle of money, but you may find ways of actually curing what ails you, information you probably won’t get from your doctor.

Look closely at your eating habits, as lack of the correct nutrition is often the major culprit in most illnesses. The body has an amazing capacity to heal itself if you give it the right foods and deny it the wrong ones.

How to avoid the poor fitness that comes with a sit down job?

Working at the computer for hours a day leads to just as big a rear-end spread as sitting on the couch all day watching television. But you’ve got work to do! How can you avoid the poor fitness that comes with a sit down job?

First, the wisest thing you can do is to schedule breaks every fifteen to twenty minutes. Walk around and do something different for a few minutes. People tend to think that the interruption of thought will hinder their work. On the contrary, folks who actually take these breaks insist that they have twice as much energy and get nearly quadruple the amount of work done each day.

Why? The brain refreshes, sort of like your webpage does. When you come back to a task after a break, you’re more refreshed and ready to tackle your current project. If you have a laptop, that’s even better. Take it to a different room every hour and a half. Watch how your overall energy increases as you change scenery once in a while!

During the wait time on your computer – there’s so much of this – you can do a few stretches. While your page is loading, try these neck exercises to reduce strain and stress in this area.

Slowly, turn your head to the right as far as you can. Hold this position for fifteen seconds. Then repeat for the left side. When you get up for a break, stop at the door frame of your office. Hold your arms in the “hold up” position – as if Jesse James were robbing you and you had your hands in the air (bent at the elbows). Then place the inside of your arms and your palms on each side of the door frame and lean in slowly. Hold the stretch for twenty seconds.

These little stretches can literally save you much stress. Many computer workers end up with a stiff neck or arm and hand pain. Taking frequent breaks and getting in the habit of stretching when you have downtime can lessen the possibility for problems in the future.
