22 Jan The Importance of Your Libido
I believe that libido is one of the most important topics you can discuss with your doctor because it’s a measure of your overall wellness, not just your sex drive.
Libido is your life drive. It’s your passion not just for romantic love, but for everything that’s important to you: your job, your family, your health, your energy, your desire to communicate with others on a higher level and your desire to check things off your bucket list. It’s also a measure of your hormonal balance, nutritional balance and whether or not your stress level is too high. Libido is a great indicator of your general health.
If your libido is low, there’s a strong chance your stress level is too high and may need to be adjusted.
I ask my patients to rate their libido on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best they’ve known it to be. Think about that for yourself. If your current number is an 8, 7, 6 or lower, it’s time to learn the science behind those numbers and what you can do to regain your life drive.
In a future blog entry, we’ll be talking about some of the best ways you can improve your libido. It is possible to take control of your health and regain your life drive.
Have you spoken with your doctor about your libido? What do you think about the relationship of the sex drive to our overall wellness? I’d love to hear from you.
