Women and sexual health – It’s time to enjoy your sex life again

As women age, they sometimes can notice changes in their sexual health.

Less desire, dryness, and other issues can really put a damper on a woman’s sexual health.

If you are a woman wondering how to maintain or regain her sexual health, you aren’t alone. And the good news is, there is help available!

Here are four ways you can have sexual health – for life!

Reduce stress

Stress can be a real desire killer, so if you are dealing with stress in your job, your marriage, with your children, with aging parents…we get it. Life happens. And it’s hard to remember that on top of all you juggle, you are still a sexual being.

By cutting stress, you can focus on yourself – and your pleasure.

Communicate with your partner

As we age, we can lose confidence in our appearance. Maybe it’s been a long dry spell and you don’t know how to get back in the saddle, so to speak. It’s hard to enjoy sex if you are dealing with these issues, and sometimes, it’s as simple as having a heart to heart with your partner about sex.

Seek professional help

There is professional help available for all sorts of sexual issues, so don’t be afraid to talk about this with your doctor. He or she has heard it all!

We offer treatments such as the O-Shot, which rejuvenates clitoral and vaginal tissues and Votiva, which helps you regain your youthfulness.

Get busy

We like to say that sex begets sex, and the more you have the more you want. So, get out there and have sex! If you need to build up to the main event, that’s OK too. Start with a massage, some kissing, hugging or hand holding.

Write each other racy notes or texts.

The point is, think sexy thoughts and sex is sure to come.

Some new lingerie, toys or other enhancers don’t hurt either.

Have Erectile Dysfunction? Here are the top Three things to ask your doctor

If you have been dealing with erectile dysfunction, you might also be dealing with a range of emotions and questions. Performance anxiety adds to the problem.
The good news is, for most men, it isn’t a condition that has to be permanent. There is help available!

So, if you are having erectile dysfunction and are considering seeing a doctor, here are three things to consider.

What could be causing my erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, or ED, can have many causes: Alcohol use, some medications, age, stress, and underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes are just a few. Talking honestly with your doctor about your lifestyle, job and other factors can help her pinpoint the reasons behind your ED – and choose an appropriate treatment plan.

How do I address my erectile dysfunction?

Lifestyle changes such as exercise, sleep and cutting stress, combined with procedures such as GAINSWave and P-shot could restore blood flow.

What is GAINSWave and P-shot?

The GAINSWave is a procedure utilizing acoustic waves to restore blood flow by creating new blood vessels. The P-shot utilizes your platelet-rich plasma and can also rejuvenate your blood supply.
The increase in blood flow results in stronger and better erections.
The good news about ED is, it doesn’t have to ruin your life.
Addressing underlying medical conditions, improving your lifestyle and utilizing GAINSWave and/or the P-shot can make a difference in your performance and enjoyment.

Brain Health and Stress

Brain Health and Stress

Stress is a given. Everyone faces stress. It is not the stress that impacts our brain health, however, it is how we handle the stress that affects us. Cortisol is our stress hormone. When we are under stress of any kind (whether psychological or physical) this hormone rises to assist us through the stressful times. However, if our stress becomes prolonged and our cortisol remains elevated for extended periods of time, we may experience emotional and cognitive changes. These changes could include difficulty sleeping, difficulty thinking and remembering, increased weight around the waist, and insulin resistance. Increased cortisol is beneficial for our brain and health short term making us more hyper-vigilant. However, prolonged elevated cortisol could result in decreased cortisol production to protect our neurons (brain cells). Reduced production may end up causing severe fatigue and emotional fragility, higher susceptibility to inflammation, and decreased thyroid function.

How Brain Health Affects Your Attitude

Brain Health and Attitude

What does attitude have to do with brain health? Actually—a lot! Our emotions are expressed biochemically. There is a connection with the hormones in our brain, body, and neurotransmitters to each other and our emotions. Our feelings, our outlook on life, our stressors, all impact our body and brain function. Therefore, how we relate to one another-all our relationships-effect our brain health. Being happy and light-hearted or sad, angry and uptight all play a role in the well-being of our brain. We all need to strive to maintain a positive attitude for the sake of our health.
