What is Sexual Dysfunction?
Many medical conditions, chronic stress and even certain medications can significantly impact the quality of your sex. This is known as sexual dysfunction. There are several phases of the love-making encounter: desire, arousal, the build-up and the climax. Sexual dysfunction is characterized by problems during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents a person from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity. There are a variety of natural treatments for low libido.
The Causes of Low Libido
There are usually more than one underlying contributing factor to low libido. Understanding which underlying causes are contributing is key to treatment. Many medical conditions can lead to poor libido; here are some of the most common:
- diabetes or insulin resistance (pre-diabetes)
- heart disease or hypertension
- neurological disorders
- menopause or dyspareunia (painful sex due to low estrogen)
- prolonged or severe stress
- anxiety and depression
- medications such as antidepressants, birth control pills, antihistamines, beta blockers, benzodiazepines, seizure medications and pain killers
Naturopathic Treatments For Low Libido
Treatments for low libido vary depending on the causes contributing to the low sex drive. For example if there are hormonal deficiencies then Dr Turner will support hormonal balance with herbs, nutrition and if needed will replace deficient hormones with Hormone Replacement Therapy. Depending on the individual’s personal and family history the treatment approaches can vary. Other treatments for low libido might include a mental ~ emotional approach using constitutional homeopathy. There are also some new treatments available specifically for when there is painful intercourse (dyspareunia) or decreased vaginal or clitoral sensation. Check out the O-Shot ®. Remember… treatment will depend on the cause.
What is the O-shot ®?
As many as 43% of women and 31% of men, according to research, have some type of sexual dysfunction. Now, for the first time, we have a viable option for treating it. Enter the “Orgasm-Shot”, or “O-Shot ®”. It is an injection used to treat sexual dysfunction and female incontinence. If you have heard of the Vampire Facelift®, then you may be familiar with the O-Shot ® because the premise is the same. It is done by using platelets from your own blood to stimulate cellular regeneration. This procedure is commonly known as PRP or platelet-rich plasma.
How does PRP work?
Blood is drawn from the patient and spun down to concentrate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). With the use of a topical anesthetic, the PRP is then injected back into vaginal and clitoral arousal centers. The PRP contains the patients’ own growth factors which attract stem cells, initiating tissue regeneration as well as the production of collagen. This can stimulate cellular rejuvenation, increased tone and can enhance sensation. This means increased clitoral arousal, stronger vaginal orgasm and better natural lubrication.
Though each woman’s response to the O-Shot ® can be different, here’s a list of some results that patients have reported:
- greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- stronger orgasm
- more frequently able to achieve orgasm
- increased sexual desire
- increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- decreased pain during intercourse
- increased natural lubrication
- decreased urinary incontinence
While there is no magic pill for amazing sex, the O-Shot ® can address certain physical issues affecting what could be your amazing sex life.
