Better Sex, Better Sleep

It is a well-known fact that menopause (and the period preceding it called perimenopause) can be a virtual emotional rollercoaster for many women as hormones go BALLISTIC! And a very common result of this hormonal free-for-all is a serious lack of SLEEP…

Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by either difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep. And the staggering fact is that more than 1/3 of all adults have insomnia, with women in particular suffering from other complicating factors, like night sweats, nighttime awakening, anxiety and depression.

So what can you do??

How do you cope with the ongoing and predictable stresses of life like toxic workplaces, caring for aging parents and the demands of running a home and raising a family?

And to add insult to injury, that same ongoing hormonal imbalance can lead to a seriously low sex drive as well. We all know that a healthy sex life is vital to the life force that supports the mind, body and spirit in balance, as taught in Ayurveda. But who feels like doing it when you are exhausted by the stresses of daily life and all you want is the blessed relief of sleep? To further complicate the situation, loss of sleep is also associated with hypertension and cardiovascular problems, not to mention depression and anxiety. And overall mortality is three times higher among people with chronic insomnia.

Traditional western medical remedies to cope with chronic insomnia include sedatives, anti-depressants, tranquilizers and anti-anxiety drugs, effective… yes… but at what cost?

Consider the alternative offered by Ayurveda, an ancient healing science reaching back over 5,000 years. Within the ayurvedic compilation of over 8,000 botanicals, there are a handful that are particularly potent, among them the amalaki fruit. Also known as the Indian Gooseberry, the amalaki is native to the region around India and Nepal, and is one of the most widely consumed supplements in India today. Amalaki, with its impressive nutrient profile, promotes health and improves the function of several body functions, including the cardiovascular system, the liver and kidneys, and the digestive system. There are also a number of other important botanicals that are essential to Ayurveda, and that support and enhance the availability of amalaki’s nutrient power.

Among these is Schizandra, or schizandra chinensis. This powerful botanical holds a top spot in traditional Chinese medicine, with millennia of traditional use as an energy booster, a fatigue fighter and a sexual tonic. Its name – Wu Wei Zi (five flavored berry) derives from the fact that schizandra simultaneously contains five of the six tastes of ayurveda – sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent. Schizandra also qualifies as an adaptogen, meaning it specifically helps the body adapt to stress by reducing the levels of stress hormones in the blood. A powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, schizandra is also known to possess a variety of health benefits, ranging from liver and kidney support to greatly improved sleep, critical for maintaining optimal health.

In sum, in an effort to balance the nervous system, improve the libido, promote restful sleep and enhance overall vitality, schizandra is an excellent choice for daily consump

Herbal Sex Pills – A Natural Solution For Increased Libido and Harder Erections Quickly!

Herbal Viagra is now more popular than ever, as super strength pills with proven herbs, provide a quick and natural alternative to prescription drugs – but how do they work? Let’s look at what the best pills contain and how and why they do.

The key to getting a strong erection and higher libido is to increase blood circulation and Nitric oxide secretion; to deliver blood to the penis and then allow it and an erection is the end result.

Any man with impotence is likely to have poor blood circulation and by boosting it, you deliver more blood to where it’s needed in the genitals – but then it has to be let in. That’s where nitric oxide is the key to any erection.

If you don’t produce enough of this key chemical no erection is possible. Nitric oxide is vital because it allows the blood vessels to expand, to let in an increased flow of blood and an erection is the end result.

Let’s look at some herbs that help blood circulation and nitric oxide secretion and also give other benefits which help libido and erectile function.

Cnidium

One of the most important herbs in traditional Chinese medicine for libido increase; not well known outside of China but one of the best herbal Viagra herbs you can get.

Not only does it increase nitric oxide, it also helps to improve blood circulation and nourish the blood as well.

Horny Goat Weed

This libido enhancer, not only increases nitric oxide secretion but also increases testosterone levels to which of course is the key male sex hormone.

It also is known to reduce stress levels, another sex drive killer and increase body energy, making you in the mood for sex.

L Arginine

Not a herb but a natural amino acid in the body which is a great circulatory tonic and also a key to higher nitric oxide secretion.

On its own it’s one of the most powerful libido enhancers you can get but when combined with the herbs in this article, it becomes even more effective. Nicknamed natures Viagra, its name reveals just how good it is and it’s found in all the best herbal Viagra’s

Ginseng

A great blood circulation herb which helps pump blood to the extremities, also helps to increase testosterone levels, increases energy levels and keeps sperm healthy.

The world’s most well known tonic herb and a great libido enhancer.

They Work and have for Centuries!

Billions of people in China have used them over the centuries and still do and herbs to enhance libido, if delivered in sufficient strength and the right combination, can rejuvenate your libido and improve your overall wellness – just like nature intended.

Tapping the Ever-Evolving Power of Female Orgasm for Your Health

Do you find yourself whizzing through this millennium? Because of the vast dissemination of information due to internet usage, it’s great that many more women are finally much more open to sexuality. As yet, due to society’s present failure to cohesively educate young and old about the latest findings about orgasm, there are a great majority of women who do not yet know how to claim their right to have a fulfilled sexual life. Hollywood’s view of what is sexy has mixed people up for generations. Hair tossing was an important effect during sex scenes, so it seemed. Now, it’s not just about the requisite, perfect makeup job and enhancements to the body that average women don’t live up to, especially during an era where 1/3 of the population is obese. (Certainly loving sex partners abound for the obese! These practices mentioned here might require better health of the lungs, than the average obese woman expresses.) But the cinema continually is more open, so that stereotypes of the stereotyping are lately replaced by more real situations upon the silver screen. Plenty of obese are featured in them.)

Women do well to begin to seek out the a.b.c. s of the unlimited nature of orgasm. More men are learning to be sensitive to their lovers, and not necessarily help them, “achieve” orgasm, (as if it is a prize won by those who exert the proper amount of toil.) Are you a woman who can agree to learn to improve your knowledge of resources within your own body, mind and spiritual human self? The determination of how much orgasm you want at any time is up to you! You can learn to give yourself improved, full orgasmic pleasure with or without a partner, (male or female). (Men can learn, too, but that’s a goodly different article.)

How about it? Being fully sensitive and orgasmic is too important a part of your humanity to be relegated to a long list of things to get tense about in your busy life. Orgasm can calm you down, perk you up, and put a smile on your face that can last far longer than you often permit. You can become playful, like an innocent child. Your lover(/s) and your own self can study a very interesting way to expand orgasm beyond the genitals, by tuning in to your internal routes of energy known as meridians that in Chinese Medicine are so important to acupuncture but can be tapped by you. A step by step way of how to move the focus of sexual excitement is an ancient understanding known around the world, but kept underground. Usually people who have not trained only focus upon the genitals to create arousal. Studying the methods to fully focus sufficiently is what can bring about the intensification of pleasure, to all other loci. Due to lack of understanding, cultural repressions and tensions, you have trained more often to inhibit than cultivate the necessary natural ways. You learn to bring your focus deeply into yourself, through developing ‘mind-eye power.’ (That’s your internal ability to visualize, feel or speak commands to yourself as if an energy drill is in each place affecting you like acupuncture needles can.) With the spiraling, mind eye power, you can train your orgasm to move to all parts of your body harmoniously.*

That is the true meaning of being a woman who is ‘multi-orgasmic’. It is not simply increasing the number of clitoral or genital orgasms per love-making session. Learning these practices makes orgasm last longer because you have trained your mind to relax and extend the orgasm and then focus enough to bring it to your internal organs and your extremities. This can make the time you spend making love a spiritual cleansing and healing only because it is your most healing energy that’s been hiding from you! It is bliss!

This is an ancient practice more commonly known of as ‘Tantra’ or raising the ‘Kundalini’, which are two words from the ancient Sanskrit language said to be from Ancient India. My teacher was long ago advised to use those Sanskrit words when speaking or writing to his Western students. They are certainly more known than the Chinese words. Yet there are different methods the various cultures use. (Like artists use different techniques to render a fruit bowl onto a canvas, so do practitioners who develop their Healing Love techniques. There are now many teachers of Chinese Healing willing to share these teachings that are no longer being held as secrets. Belief plus my experience of over 30 years verifies for me, that the more able you are to give pleasure to yourself and another through intimate connection with your internal life forces, the more likely you are to heal physical, mental and emotional wounds. You will be a more peaceful person because you will train to find the chemicals provided by your body that relax you. It is quite easier to approach healing in a relaxed state. You won’t reach for pharmaceuticals or elicit drugs of any kind. You won’t be seeking other external adrenalin or endorphin boosters when you can charge up your natural pharmacopoeia through the birthright of being fully orgasmic. You won’t become a ‘sex maniac’ either, because this intensified love-making is long-lasting. Once you learn it, you don’t have to ‘achieve’ orgasm any more. This method is so natural because you attend to your holistic energetic pulses that will be humming tunefully by practicing these methods.

This energetic orgasm is like having a feast that is crafted by the world’s greatest chef. You know you can’t really enjoy a feast if you over-eat. You only get sick. You take your time to enjoy each delicate morsel. The finest ingredients and preparation deserve taking time making it and savoring it both during the meal and long after. You take your time and no longer want junk food! You learn to stay in the moment better when you put your mind into each millimeter of your body! Usually it takes patient practice to feel like you are a great chef.

A book entitled, The Multi-Orgasmic Woman by Mantak Chia and Rachel Carlton Abrams, M.D. is published by Rodale Press. This book has level-headed techniques you can use to transform old ideas and experiences of orgasm into newer and lovelier explorations. Being a long-time student of Mantak Chia, since 1981, I was asked to contribute to the above named book. Hopefully this article has put the idea in your mind to research enhancements to your life. This is an oasis-like resource you are simply introduced to. It’s up to you to transform your life. Beyond introductory readings, find for yourself some lectures on the subject. Keep adding information until you find a local teacher. In order to be touched, in an exciting new way, reach for your own self-evolvement.
