Having a low desire for sexual activity is one of the most common reasons people visit a sex therapist. It's estimated that nearly 25% of men and 35% of women have low or absent sexual desire.

Sex is a HUGE part of health and wellness that is often overlooked. Having sex with your partner can increase several "feel good" chemicals in the body/brain including dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphins. Having sex with your partner can also lower stress hormones, raise self esteem, and reduce the risk of depression.

The major influence of sexual desire for humans is hormones. Having a healthy balance of hormones (mainly testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone) is vital for sexual, physical, and mental health. Unfortunately, there is an epidemic of low testosterone (and elevated estrogen) that is going largely unnoticed by conventional doctors.

Low testosterone is linked to:

  • Low libido
  • Low confidence
  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • Increased risk of diabetes
  • Increased risk of osteoporosis
  • Depression
  • Lack of energy
  • Increased risk of being overweight

Elevated estrogen levels are linked to:

  • PCOS
  • Anxiety/ depression
  • Endometriosis and fibroids
  • Obesity (specifically in the belly region)
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • low libido

While our hormone levels fluctuate with age, there are countless lifestyle factors that we can alter to create a healthy balance of hormones: boosting our sex drive, assisting in weight loss, reducing anxiety, and giving us the confidence that we need to succeed.

In episode 69, Joe shares supplements, foods, and life hacks that you can use to balance your hormones and increase your sexual desire.
