Low Libido? Improve your Desire and Improve your Life: Part One

Vaginismus Low Libido 250If you’ve been suffering with vaginismus for a while, then a healthy sexual appetite probably hasn’t been high on your to-do list. With the help of Vaginismus MD, you can reclaim that part of your world that’s been lost – and that can lead to another set of concerns. You’ve been ignoring your low libido for a while, and now it’s time to get it back. Here are some tips to successfully improve your desire.

  • If you’re nervous, one alcoholic drink can help ease your anxiety. But be careful of using this as a crutch – alcohol is a depressant and too much can actually reduce your libido.
  • Have you explored the world of aphrodisiac foods? Now, we know there’s no magic “love potion,” but certain foods have been used to help “get in the mood” for centuries. Some foods to try: oysters, chocolate, and asparagus. Oysters are especially high in zinc, and this is a mineral that’s central to fertility.
  • If you’re a smoker, quit now! Not only for your overall health, but for the sake of your libido. Smoking has an adverse effect on blood flow – and that’s a key component in arousal.
  • While we’re on the topic of blood flow, keeping up with regular exercise can improve your libido, as well. Not only will you feel great about yourself, regular exercise works to improve blood flow.

You’re not alone in your sexual struggles – and there are even more ways to improve a lagging libido. Check back for part two!
