Is it a thing of the past? Or can you once again enjoy sex like you used to – or like you’ve always wished you could?
Well gladly, the answer is yes.
If you have found that heading into your perimenopausal years has resulted in a decrease in sex drive, then know this: there are options available to support you.
So how do you get your want for lust back into your life?
Well, the thing with our libidos is this – ladies, use it or you’re going to lose it.
It’s like milk production during breastfeeding. Stimulate more and your supply (or in the case of your libido – desire) will increase.
But that’s not the whole picture.
Many research studies are now showing a strong correlation between hormone imbalance and issues with gut health.
And what hormone impacts your sexual desire? An excess of estrogen, that’s what.
So what’s the link between sexual health and gut health?
So, most of us know about the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria in our gut.
Well, the estrobolome is a collection of good bacteria in the gut that helps metabolise and modulate the bodies’ estrogen levels. Keeping any excess in check.
But if your gut health is not optimised, neither are your hormones.
And you will continue to run into challenges that relate to estrogen dominance such as low libido, weight gain and mood swings.
How do I get my estrogen levels under control?
By supporting your gut health.
And the best way to do that is to start with the right anti-inflammatory diet. Like the one The Holland Clinic has created.
This diet will help boost your libido, balance your moods, help with “hormonal belly” and get you back that zest for life.
In and out of the bedroom.
You can support your gut health by following a supportive anti-inflammatory diet. Dr Holland has created the Nourish and Flourish 5-Day Meal Plan which includes balanced meals that reduce inflammation in your body and promote optimal hormone balance designed specifically for women during their perimenopause years (35 to 55 years of age).
