The reproductive system offers some unique challenges because there are so many factors involved in reproductive health issues. And, while sexual intimacy is not the only ingredient to a healthy relationship, it is important in developing the bond of love between a man and a woman. So, even though lack of desire, inability to perform or other reproductive health issues aren't life threatening, they do detract from the ability to enjoy life to the fullest.
In this Herbal Hour, Steven Horne and Thomas Easley tackle how to solve various common reproductive health issues with single herbs, nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes. They start with a discussion of erectile dysfunction, which is estimated to affect about 30 million men. They also talk about the common problem of low testosterone and offer some solutions to restoring male desire and potency.
Next they tackle lack of desire. This is a more complex problem because a huge component of desire is emotional. Sex is a form of communication and the lack of sex, or problems with sex, often signal relationship issues. They talk about this, and about physical causes of lack of desire such as low thyroid and stress.
Women experience some unique problems that make sexual activity difficult or painful. These include painful intercourse, vaginal infections and vaginal dryness, as well as the inability to achieve orgasm. Steven and Thomas explore these problems and offer suggestions for possible natural remedies.
Finally, they talk about some natural approaches to the problem of infertility. One in ten couples have a problem with infertility, making it another wide-spread reproductive health issue. Although this problem may require medical intervention, there are simple things a couple can try to see if they can improve their fertility.
Some reproductive health problems do require medical treatment. But before turning to drugs and other expensive medical treatments, why not try some simple and safe natural approaches?
