I'm not a medical professional, just another woman suffering from personal sexual issues who was desperate for some answers. As it happened I saw a copy offered up for review right around the time I was at an emotional breaking point over the problems that had seeped into my sexual relationship and it couldn't have been there at a better time. Traditional medicine has its place and unfortunately hasn't helped me yet.
GREAT SEX, NATURALLY is the perfect resource for perspective and an understanding of your options both in traditional and alternative medicine. I've always been open to both but with my particular issues didn't know where to start. My doctors kept telling me things like needing more relaxation time and drinking more water, to ask my spouse to focus on certain things and I'd pretty much given up on asking them for help after three years of worthless advice.
This book stresses that sexual health is all part of overall health and therefore does focus greatly on lifestyle changes in the early chapters. Fortunately, much of it is easy to accomplish if you're willing to change some of your poor lifestyle habits for the sake of your health. In particular I found that focusing on bringing healthier foods into my diet was an area I could easily change with much benefit. Other areas include meditation and physical activity, acupressure and focusing on specific ailments and their treatments.
What ultimately both floored and uplifted me was the areas focusing on hormonal imbalances.Read more ›
When I got the opportunity to get this book I thought this would be very informative. After all I am in mid life and going through Menopause and things are not going as smoothly as they used to.
"Many books on Women's sexuality focus on the mechanics of sex, but miss out on the big picture and don't address where your libido comes from in the first place"
In this case this book definitely covers the big picture.
The following quote resonated with me:
"A large part of being a healthy, vital, sexual woman is your core relationship with yourself"
I have been on a self-discovery journey in the last few years and can see the truth in this statement. I also found their definition of what natural medicine is very interesting. The authors say that Naturopathic medicine focuses on creating health rather than eliminating disease.
Just reading the "Using this book to Most Effectively Enhance Your Sexuality" chapter by chapter summary of benefits, created real interest for me to read on.
In Chapter 1 they explain the link between being healthy and sex. Being healthy increases your capacity to enjoy sex, and having sex helps keep you healthy.
Chapter 2 concentrates on creating a healthy lifestyle with organic, natural diet, supplements, exercise and dietary cleansing. This was mostly overall good health information that i have read in other places. Much of it does make sense, unfortunately choosing the natural way is more expensive in my experience. I do want to eat healthier and would love to take some supplements. I will actually try a few of the natural remedies that are discussed in the book.Read more ›
