A Nutritional approach to improved Libido

35% of Women "DON'T WANNA"
but LIBIDO or SEXUAL DESIRE Level, is "Modulatory" (changeable) using......
NEURO TRANSMITTERS 5-HTP 100 mg (or L-Tryptophan) and HORMONES Testosterone from ZINC 50 mg or pumpkin seeds
and in a Monkey See Monkey Do World, PORN is good for the Libido
"as long as it does not contain children or violence" -Dr Ruth Westheimer


UPDATE 2022 I was able to verify from a recent text book that ZINC is good for womens libido. Zinc creates testosterone which is the hormone associated with women's libido.

You should be having sex at least every 48 hours (or more sex in fewer hours). Why? because thats what the experts say (learned in college) and I have the math to prove why http://www.archure.net/psychology/sex2.html#4 Many women have the false (and painful) notion that men must save up sperm for long periods of time, but making 50,000 sperm per min, we think not. Physical Celibacy can be painful and damaging to the endocrine system

16% of Males (one in six) and 35 % of Females (2 in 6, or 1 in 3) have "Low Libido" or low desire for sex, aka, yes they get married and have kids, but in general, it's "not tonight honey I have a headache and I have church in the morning" or in singles social settings "I'm saving myself for Jesus". Sure they want a relationship, but in general sex was made for having children. So my attitude was, let them have a low libido, I will go find a lady with a medium to high libido; but now I find out that Low Libido is considered a disorder or dysfunction and can be curable, except in males who have had a low libido for many years without proper treatment. Everyone else can "Up their Libido". How many Psychologists does it take to screw in a light bulb? Only one, but the lightbulb has to want to change. I'm not going to search you out and say Ah-ha! Get that Libido going! Its up to you.

Yes Virginia, there is a cure for Low Libido (except in males with untreated low libido for many years, and even then?)

QUOTE: "As neurotransmitters and sex hormones have modulatory function on sexual desire, treatment intervention has been evaluated in multiple clinical trials" :UNQUOTE
SHOPPING LIST:
BOTH GENDERS: 5-HTP 100 mg and 50 mg Zinc tabs


NEUROTRANSMITTERS: I suggest 100 mg of over the counter "5-HTP" per day for the mind to prevent confusion and anger, 100 mg every day, but it also helps with Libido. more on 5-HTP http://www.archure.net/psychology/mentalhealth.html

SEX HORMONES:

MALE: "Testosterone" male hormone is helped by Zinc 50 mg tablets (a plate of West Coast Oysters contains 30 mg Zinc, East Coast Oysters 40 mg Zinc, I am a vegetarian vegan so I get 50 mg tabs and take 2 or 4 per day), I suggest 50 mg to 200 mg per day, and it's good to take a break from Zinc for maybe a week or two every 6 months or every year and eat peanuts at that time (Copper and Zinc); because too much Zinc prevents the absorption of Copper which is needed to make new blood cells and likewise, too much Copper in the diet can prevent the absorption of Zinc (thus limiting ones masculinity). Some who take Zinc with no break, can suffer from old blood. I met a guy like that, he was very masculine, but looked dirty and sickish, and he explained the reason for his condition was he was unable to make enough new blood cells due to, too much Zinc for too long. So if you are aware of that, you can eventually sense when you need to take a break from Zinc, and at that time eat foods high in copper.

Pepitas aka Pumpkin seeds contain Zinc and help testosterone, however, watch out, if they are not organic, the pesticides used can cause hand cramping (also sunflower seeds etc). But Pumpkin seeds contain Zinc. (many were roasted in Canola oil which prevents weight loss, avoid canola products, bread, seeds, chips).

FEMALE: I just read in a Human Sexuality textbook (fairly recent) a list of Female Hormones and what they did, and the ONE FEMALE HORMONE related to LIBIDO or DESIRE FOR SEX was TESTOSTERONE, which is generally regarded as the male hormone but is needed by women too. It might make your voice lower or make you pissed off, but if it increases your Libido aka sexual desire level.
"Testosterone" hormone is helped by Zinc 50 mg tablets (a plate of West Coast Oysters contains 30 mg Zinc, East Coast Oysters 40 mg Zinc, I am a vegetarian vegan so I get 50 mg tabs and take 2 or 4 per day), I suggest 50 mg to 200 mg per day, and it's good to take a break from Zinc for maybe a week or two every 6 months or every year and eat peanuts at that time (Copper and Zinc); because too much Zinc prevents the absorption of Copper which is needed to make new blood cells and likewise, too much Copper in the diet can prevent the absorption of Zinc (thus limiting ones masculinity).

So if you are aware of that, you can eventually sense when you need to take a break from Zinc, and at that time eat foods high in copper.


DHEA (good for both genders) etc. might also help?
DHEA: is a natural hormone found in the tips of Mexican Yams or Caribbean Yams, but a chemist told me the body is not able to fully utilize it out of yams, while getting DHEA in pill form is easy. DHEA is a new over the counter Wonder Drug which helps the hormones, the endocrine system, where one gland sends a message to the next, so if you get any of your glands going, it spurs on the other glands, such as Sex, gets the heart adrenal glands going, and running or exercise gets the heart and adrenal glands going. Melatonin 1 to 5 mg (not every night, take a break sometime) can get the pineal gland going, which is also very good for the mind and body. Iodine (kelp, seaweed, "Kelp tablets 225 mcg Iodine") helps your Thyroid gland, which in turn sends signals to other glands. Avoid overloading your Kidneys with excessive protein (no more than 50 mg women, 75 mg for men, unless you're in the Olympics), and avoid taxing your Liver with too much sugar and fat, especially sugar (alcohol, candy, sweeteners, read labels) and avoid high glycemic foods such as figs, dates, potatoes, gator aid, candy bars, which give you energy for one hour max then you tremble in weakness unless you consume more gator aid or figs (turns people into diabetics); instead stick with low glycemic foods such as Legumes (beans) and Pasta, both of which give you energy for a longer time; and stick with healthy fats: Extra virgin Olive Oil (best), Olive Oil (next best), Canola Oil (next), but Flax seed oil (need refrigeration) is Omega 3 and very healthy too, good to get that too, avoid: lard, beef tallow, caritas and linguisa and prime rib (heart attack factory), even avoid Corn Oil (I love it but it's bad for you), and Palm Oil (Andrew Weil MD takes a strong stance against the evils of Palm Oil, in spite of many health food manufactures switching to it (beware).

PORN: is good for the Libido or Sexual Desire level "as long as it does not contain children or violence" -Dr Ruth Westheimer famous sex therapist as seen on the Tonight Show for many years and author of Sex for Dummies and Encyclopedia of Sex.
Porn is illegal by The Church but is legal by law. In a monkey see, monkey do world, view Porn can increase the libido desire for sex level. Men watch Lesbians, not that they want a Lesbian, they just don't want to watch another male, that might be considered gay to some. Likewise women might like to watch gay men in porn, not that they want a gay guy, but they are not interested in the woman, and they might learn something special? like the tip? its not the tip honey. They have regular male and female porn.



Article in progress: see my main article on Human Sexuality for more tips on Foreplay Time (10 minutes minimum, 20 min optimum, not 4 min even if she says OK) and the Missionary Position (face to face) creates discord, while any style of Doggie style or rear entry angle to the vagina creates mutual satisfaction and better harmonious relations on many levels, see link at top of page to my Human Sexuality articles http://www.archure.net/psychology/sex.html
