Libido and sexual health can be a tricky topic. But let’s gently push aside our reluctance (and blushes) and talk about it. Sexual health is part of the homeopathic conversation and is a common issue for both men and women. There can be numerous reasons for a low sex drive and the resulting lack of intimacy can cause emotional stress and problems in your relationship.
We are governed by a complex set of sex hormones, oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone and they are in a continuous cycle of ups and downs. Both periodically, during times of stress and as we age. These sex hormones can easily get out of balance which will affect and disrupt libido.
If you are under a great deal of stress, this may also be adding to the hormonal mix with either too little cortisol or too much cortisol and this again will have an impact on your libido. Read this article by Sara Gottfried, M.D. to learn more about the effect hormones have on your sex drive.
How Homeopathy Helps
Homeopathy looks at the individual and the unique set of symptoms each of us display when our system is out of balance. Homeopathy supports and assists the body in restoring balance, including our hormones and our physical and emotional well being.
There may also be the need to review and support any history of trauma, chronic stress or if a homeopathic detox is required. Each person has a unique story and homeopathy embraces this and uses this individuality to find the remedies required and the treatment plan best suited for each person. The time it takes for balance to be restored will depend on all of the above. Throughout the process any support required from other health care professionals will be encouraged and supported.
