I hear it so often from patients that their doctors think they are JUST #depressed and need anti-depressants. NO, NO, NO. All this does is put you in a box, with a fox, eating lox and not want to do much of anything. BUT it doesn’t solve the underlying issues. Not only that, but anti-depressants are one of THE leading causes of #erectiledysfunction .Not the best solution if you are already dealing with this problem.
So this is why a #naturopathicdoctor will look at your lack of giddy up in life in a more #holistic way. First, are you living your life’s #purpose ? Have you even pondered this over? If you are not fulfilling your #potential often your will to do much of anything else, including “getting it on” also suffers. This may be a good place to start if you’re not having any difficulties performing sexually but are feeling lackadaisical.
Another overlooked factor that plays a role in you “getting in the mood” is balance of your #neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters, like the hormones #cortisol and DHEA, are released from the #adrenal glands and are crucial for your fight or flight response and the ability to feel, to #desire , to want, to eat and much more. Moreover, you need them as part of your healthy sexual response. When you are chronically #stressed your neurotransmitters can become out of balance, along with the vitally important #hormone #testosterone and cause you just flat out not want to do much of anything. There are great neurotransmitter tests out there, collected by urine, that can tell you what your levels look like. Check ‘em out @conscioushumanmedicine ! .
Speaking of stress -- it can, over time, rob you of your vital force. It can also rob you of the will to live. If you are looking for great information on stress, head over to @conscioushumanmedicine where @drmahboubeh and I are discussing the multitude of ways stress affects you and ways to get back to wellness again.
