11 Ways To Boost Testosterone & Sex Drive Naturally ~ Men, Let’s Talk About Sex . . .

Let’s talk about SEX!!

Now that I have your attention, in this post we’ll look at some issues surrounding Men’s health and hormonal imbalance that can lead to lowered testosterone, lowered libido, lowered sperm count and even erectile dysfunction.

This post probably needs a ‘companion post’ all about libido in women . . . but that’s a little more complicated (pun intended). While testosterone is not the whole story, it does play a leading role in lowered sex drive in men, however for women – desire stems from a much more complicated set of hormonal and emotional interactions.

So Men . . . do you find yourself too busy, too tired, or too distracted for sex? Or does your drive just not seem to be there like it used to be?

Unfortunately, modern life isn’t friendly to a man’s libido.

Challenges to a healthy sex drive are many: obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid dysfunction, adrenal exhaustion, poor nutrition, prescription medications, too much stress, and too little sleep and even ‘technology’. Yes, too many blokes ‘zap their crown jewels’ with mobile phones and laptops, by not understanding the effects of electromagnetic fields on the body.

4 Essential Oils to Fight Infections, Clear Congestion & Help You Breathe Easier!

Aromatherapy & Essential Oils for Fighting Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi & Assisting in Respiratory Wellbeing.

Some of the earliest known use of Essential Oils dates back to Ancient China between 2697 – 2597 BC during the Huang dynasty. There are ancient Chinese Medicine texts which list essential oils and their benefits.

The use of Essential Oils dates back not only through the history of Chinese Medicine, but also back to ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Arabia, Isreal and Europe. There is evidence that essential oils were even used to help people survive the bubonic plague, due to their powerful immune boosting and anti-bacterial effects.

Whilst the value of the use of Essential Oils has been somewhat lost through centuries of Western culture and it’s neglect of the mind-body-spirit connection, the importance of the sense of smell and the potential application of essential oils in healing is making a comeback, particularly in the last few years.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are the pure essence extracted from the leaves, seeds, roots, or flowers of a plant or tree. They are the ‘life-force’ and have also been called the blood of the plant. Just one drop of an essential oil can have a powerful effect on the body. Each essential oil has its own set of health enhancing properties which are dependant on the chemical constituents that make up the individual oil.

The Importance of Purity It is only pure, natural living plant extracts that carry healing properties required to enhance the health of the body. A pure plant oil will give and create more life energy, whereas a synthetic or unpure oil will drain life energy, as the body works to eliminate something which is unnatural. High quality essential oils are extracted in a way where proper extraction and quality control methods are followed. Many brands of essential oils on the market contain synthetic fillers and perfumes and it is for this reason that only certified pure brands of essential oils are used.

More Energy, Clearer Thinking, Reduced Cravings & 12 kg Lighter: How ‘Being Savvy’ Changed My Life!

Saturday Success Story: Julie shares the impact that ‘Being Savvy’ made for her entire family’s wellbeing!

“After two months following the Savvy Team ‘Rapid Fat Loss Program’, I had more energy, clearer thinking and I had released 12 kilograms! I felt great and my sugar cravings had reduced.”

I thought I was doing the right things by my family . . .

At the time when I met Gwen from the Savvy Team, I had a 3-year-old girl and a 6-month boy and thought I was pretty knowledgeable about being healthy.

I was eating the ‘right foods’ (I was breastfeeding at the time and I was making all of the baby food!) and I was reluctant to use chemicals around the house, and on top of that I avoided putting anything ‘unhealthy’ on my body (or so I thought). To try to be as natural and healthy as possible – I had even started a business selling natural wooden toys!

Imagine my surprise when I was told to be careful of potentially harmful ingredients in everyday products in my bathroom and home.

Surely not, I thought? This is stuff that is going on our skin – there has to be government regulations on those sort of things.

My ‘Wakeup Call’ . . .

They can be used or applied in a multitude of ways and combinations to bring powerful results to your tasks, atmosphere, and bodies.

All essential oils are made up of various chemical constituents  with impressive qualities. In addition, they transfer very pleasurable sensory experiences within minutes because of their fragrances and restorative natures, making them impactful on our brain chemistry and emotional well-being. Fragrances are strongly connected to our emotions and memories as our scent receptors are located next to the emotional centers in our brain, the amygdala and hippocampus.

Researchers believe that certain fragrances can help trigger calming or peaceful feelings, resulting in overall reduction in stress and healing. Also, essential oils may interact with certain hormones, neurotransmitters, or enzymes, resulting in specific changes to the body chemistry.

Many of us are stressed out and overwhelmed with so many daily demands that having just a moment of peace and harmony would really help improve our lives. Are you looking for an increase in a sense of calmness and greater mental clarity in your day to day life?
