How are Libido (Sex Drive) issues defined?
We are going to slant this article towards our very small but mighty population of male clients. Most of our male clients are the spouse’s of the families trying to conceive. We can very generically splice the blame in the health of reproduction to 40% to the men and 60% to the women.
Women have far more complicated and intricate plumbing that is affected by a large number of unavoidable factors, never-mind the avoidable ones. Libido especially in men would be defined overarchingly to include: lack of interest, inability to get and maintain an erection, depression, anxiety, stress, malnutrition (way more common here as a causative factor for many diseases than you might actually realize), decrease in morning erections, prostate and other hormonal changes such as low testosterone and obesity. Other issues which could be contributing factors to the decline in overall core health could be high blood pressure, inactivity and inflexibility, poor circulation, cortisol and adrenal problems related to prolonged stress on the body.
Traditionally though, libido is relegated to issues specially related to the status in your overall sex drive, desire and/or sexual activity.
Libido Reduction Symptoms
As males are concerned, when they start to notice changes in their bodies and the way in which it has always functioned, they can experience anxiety, isolation and depression and a result of negative changes. Especially, as it pertains to their little friends functionality. This of course, only makes things worse. Especially if the primary problem is how well ‘he’ is or is not working in the bedroom department.
Decrease in morning erections, erections without the stiffness it once had, waking multiple times in the night to urinate, difficulty with starting and stopping your urine stream, dribbling, shortness of breath, frequent sighing, dental and gum issues, digestion & constipation, headaches and more are all common symptoms experienced by men.
So Gents…Do any of my readers out there experience a decrease in libido, moodiness, irritability, loss of “drive”, inner unrest, anxiety, memory loss, fatigue, difficulty digesting food and/or becoming more passive…especially pertaining to the ‘Umph’ to initiate sexual activity with a partner you once had?

When a proper technique is employed to return your levels to normal, the side-effects are generally very positive and in most cases very advantageous, as increasing a deficiency in testosterone will also protect very important aspects of the man’s body such as the immune, cardiovascular system and prostate. Optimal levels of your testosterone is helpful as a prostate cancer preventative and in some well developed places medically in the world, as a treatment for, prostate cancer. Whereas, here in the U.S. testosterone is generally regarded as the enemy (rarely tested), which is just not the case, usually causing more damage overall by using medications that actually turn a man into a woman, hormonally speaking. The medications are used way to willy-nilly, in my opinion, for prostate cancer and seemingly withheld from blocks of people who could potentially benefit from its use.
