Your Health and Your Sex Life
By Dr. Mary Starr Carter
Sex within a healthy marriage is awesome and if you have a healthy marriage I don’t have to answer why…..
But the quality of your Sex Life can be a reflection of one or both spouse’s health. Here are some common myths when it comes to sex.
Myth: It is natural as we age for our libido to decrease
Actually this is not correct. If you examine some of the longest living cultures alive today they not only are enjoying sex in their later years but actually conceiving at 50 and 60 without any medical help.
A healthy male will have virility to his late years. And woman way past her sixties in many of these cultures.
What do these cultures have that we don’t in most modernized countries?
Clean Foods no processed foods or sugar.
Daily physical exercise from labor.
Cleansing or Fasting 30-100 days a year.
Nature’s unadulterated medicine.
A lot less Cortisol (stress hormone) raising Stress
In these cultures there are no cases of Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, or Digestive Diseases like Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s.
Myth: It is normal for an older male not be able to have an erection or ejaculation
This is incorrect. Certain diseases like Diabetes, Stenosis of the spinal cord (arthritis pushing on the spinal cord), Bulging discs on the spinal cord, and many medications can all cause issues with sexual performance.
As a Chiropractor I have to say that blockages in your nervous system the body’s Master System may be causing symptoms. Some older men have found regular Chiropractic adjustments very beneficial to their overall health.
Myth: Drugs can fix my “sex problems”
In the past two decades they have found many harmful and even fatal side effects of some common erectile dysfunction drugs.
Ironically the same drugs that are suppose to make us happy (Anti-depressants) have a common side effect of decreased libido. And don’t forget that alcohol and recreational drugs also will affect your sexual performance.
Even something as simple as a cholesterol medication can decrease the cholesterol needed to produce hormones that give us our sex drive.
So if you are having trouble investigate these things first before turning to medications.
Myth: What I eat has no effect on my sexual performance?
This is incorrect, especially if you are trying to have a baby. Men who eat a junk food diet filled with high saturated fats, sugar, and sodas like Mountain DoDo have been found to have a lower motility and sperm count. Over time these things lead to stressed out organs, nervous system, and hormonal system resulting in dis-ease like Diabetes.
NingXia Red is just a highly concentrated fruit drink that is extremely safe for all ages and health conditions. There is no caffeine or herbs in it just nature’s medicine fruits that help to re-build the body. After 6 weeks of 6 oz a day most every person I talk to comments how ALIVE they feel & how much VITALITY they feel.

Myth: Exercise will reduce my Sex Drive
Exercise is an important part of your health and can increase your libido by increasing the Happy Hormones in your body as well as specific hormones that help keep you young.
If you overtrain you can decrease your oomph by stressing the adrenal glands which are an important part of your endocrine hormone system. One great tip for Exercisers is to drink an ounce of NingXia Red in 8 oz of water while you exercise and make sure your body is getting enough minerals, B vitamins, and Fish oils.
This is just a glimpse at what Nutrition and Exercise can do your Sex Life. But here is my Bonus and Advice for those who want it don’t feel you have to take it.
As a spouse who has been through marriage training and individual counseling I would have to say the most effective training we had as a couple was www.firststepstosuccess.com
It may seem weird that we went to a business training to get
our marriage straight but it ended up like that. I tell every person I know that this is where I learned to be a good listener and wife. To honor my husband and build a foundation of success. I won’t comment on my sex life in honor of my husband, but I will end by saying some of the best things you can do for your marriage and sex life happen outside the bedroom.
