Raw Food & Your Sex Life

Spread the love

On November 14, the guests on the Main Street Vegan radio show were Dr. Brian and Anna Maria Clement of Hippocrates Health Institute, talking about their new book, 7 Keys to Lifelong Sexual Vitality. Here are some of their suggestions for spicing up things in your bedroom, largely by doing a few things differently in the kitchen.

Screw Oysters and Chocolate! Prepare an ‘Aphrodisiac Salad’ to Really Turn up the Heat

In ancient cultures, foods were selected as aphrodisiacs by their shape and their resemblance to the human form, or more specifically, reproductive organs: (i.e., bananas, cucumbers, ginseng root, etc.)
But today, the reality is that aphrodisiacs are determined by the ingredient’s nutrients. If something happens to look phallic, that’s just a coincidence!
Why oysters aren’t your best bet
o While oysters are a well-known source of zinc (which plays a central role in the creation of hormones and clitoris sensitivity), oysters are also a toxic food.

o Oysters and other shellfish absorb all of the ocean’s toxins and parasites (see YouTube video of clam eating salt!), which outweigh the benefits of zinc.

Why chocolate doesn’t necessarily work
o Chocolate has a high fat content and negatively affects the liver and gallbladder.

But if you want something that’s all-natural, good for you and good for SEX, then go for the ‘Aphrodisiac Salad’ or the Sex Salad. This concoction includes ingredients whose nutrients contain some of the most powerful libido enhancers.
o Base – mix of ‘super’ greens like mustard greens, spinach, baby kale, and pea greens

o Toppings – chopped scallion, dried apricots, avocado, zucchini, chopped broccoli, pumpkin seeds

o Dressing (combine in blender) – 4 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 garlic clove, 1 ½ tsp. Herbs de Provence, ½ lb. fresh basil, pinch of cayenne pepper, ½ c extra virgin olive oil

Make Love to Live Longer (and Other Reasons Why Sex is a Must!)

You’ve already heard that sex strengthens your immune system, but here are some other benefits of intercourse:

Makes you live longer
Improves your sense of smell
Helps to stop headaches and eases arthritis pain
Can help prevent heart attacks
Improves mental health

Foods That Poison Sex

Need a reason to say ‘no’ to some of your favorite guilty pleasures? These foods can cause impotence in men and decrease sensitivity in women.

Bacon, sausage, and other fatty meats contain high levels of saturated fats and cholesterol, which clog your arteries. The first arteries usually affected are the penal and vaginal arteries since they are so small and quickly collect plaque.
o Symptoms: difficulty achieving and maintaining arousal/orgasm

Dairy. Saturated fats in most cheeses (not to mention ice cream) are comparable to those found in fatty meats. Your worst nightmare? A bacon cheeseburger and milkshake.
Processed baked goods. Even if the bag says “No Trans Fats,” chances are the bag is loaded with them. It’s probable that the initial ingredients excluded trans fats, but because of the way baked goods are processed, trans fats are often created during the baking process.
Soy-based products are high in estrogen, which can lower male sex drive and increase the risk of disease and testosterone in women.

Raw Food Enhances Sexual Vitality

Eating raw food gives you more energy and, in turn, makes you more sexually responsive

Examples of nutrients essential to sexual health include:
o B-Complex Vitamins – these relax all systems in the body and are important to the production of hormones

§ Sprouted grains of all types, uncooked whole-grain breads

o Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A) – plays a vital role in the production of sex hormones

§ Leafy green sprouts, beet greens, kale, spinach, cabbage, citrus fruits, yams, etc.

o Calcium – linked to cellular health. When the cells are healthy, they heighten sensitivity for sexual pleasure and circulation to genitalia.

§ Leafy green vegetables, sprouted beans, cabbage, broccoli, wheatgrass juice, etc.

o Essential Fatty Acids – fuel for cells that’s essential for sexual desire, sensitivity and pleasure.

§ Germinated nuts, seeds, grains and beans.

Ditch Beauty & Skincare Items with Parabens: They Hurt Your Sex Life!

Petroleum by-products called phthalates (pronounced “thallets”) used in plastics and cosmetics have been linked to gender-bending effects in humans, even in low doses and exposure levels.
o A 2005 study from the University of Rochester showed that 134 boys with sex abnormalities such as tiny testicles and/or penises had been exposed in the womb to higher-than-normal levels of phthalates absorbed by their mothers.

At least 50 chemicals found in cosmetic products have been linked to hormone disruption.
These toxins affect both the ability to have an orgasm and an orgasm’s intensity.
Common products containing these harmful ingredients include perfume, body lotions, sunscreens, deodorant, shampoo, lipstick and nail polish.

Natural light

Light interacts with the pineal gland in our heads to affect our sex drive.
Researchers in 2009 reported the results of a study involving a group of volunteers ages 39-60 who had a diagnosis of a low sex drive, sexual arousal disorder or orgasmic disorder.
After two weeks, the group that had daily exposure to white fluorescent lights with an ultraviolet filter reported a “significant improvement” in sexual satisfaction.

Pelvic Exercises

Pelvic floor exercises can restore erectile function in many men who suffer from an inability to achieve and maintain an erection.
This no-cost natural alternative to Viagra was examined in a 2005 British experiment that involved 55 men afflicted with erectile dysfunction.
After six months of these exercises, the group that performed pelvic exercises twice daily received the following results: At least 40 percent regained full normal erectile function and 35.5 percent showed at least some improvement.
