Health & Wellbeing Podcast #35
This podcast is all about libido: why it can be low for some people, what does it mean to have a libido, and how you can boost your libido naturally.
For some couples, a lowered libido can take it’s toll on a relationship. For some people a low libido causes them no worry at all. But as my guest on this podcast tells us, there is more to a libido than just your desire to have sex – it can be a sign of your inner vitality and represents more than just a desire to have sex, but your drive to seek pleasure in daily life as well.
Hormonal changes, stress, nutritional deficiencies and certain medications can all be responsible for a lowered libido. In this episode we chat about ways you can boost your libido, naturally.
The guest on this podcast is Alannah Demunck, a Naturopath with a passion for helping people with their sexual health – be it hormonal imbalances, post-pill syndrome, STI co-management, vaginal infections and of course, libido.
Join us as we talk about some of the common causes of a low libido, and discuss the ways this can be helped with naturopathy (herbal medicine, affirmations, nutrition and more).
