Fire Up Your Libido
For many women, libido can drop in the 30s, 40s and 50s. Wondering how to start the fire again? It’s not simply a part of aging to accept. Maybe, it’s not even the kids, stress or being tired. Consider taking a closer look at the thyroid gland for deficiencies.
The thyroid gland is the master endocrine gland, so an underactive thyroid could be influencing various hormones such as progesterone, estrogen and testosterone. Also, the hormone receptor sites in the vagina, vulva, clitoris, uterus, urethra and bladder are all affected by hormonal decline. Clinical research has linked thyroid disease with diminished libido. When hypothyroidism is treated, sexual desire and satisfaction can become normalized.
From mid to late thirties onwards the level of progesterone declines and the imbalance causes symptoms of painful PMS, migraines, menorrhagia (painful and heavy menstrual periods), uterine fibroids, and hypothyroidism, originating from an imbalance of the thyroid gland.
The Secret Behind the Mona Lisa’s Smile
Dr. Samuel Levine, MD (1891-1996) thought the universal fascination with the Mona Lisa stemmed from her being hyperthyroid. When given a slight stare, viewers are under the impression that she is focusing on them. He maintained that those with increased thyroid function had bright, sparkling eyes and appeared to be interesting people, because personality is conveyed largely through the eyes. He felt that people with a slight excess of thyroid by current standards, and not confused with severely hyperthyroid, would rather be slightly hyperthyroid than slightly hypothyroid (low thyroid), and took a rather generous dose of natural, desiccated thyroid for many years.
Thyroid treatment must be holistic; almost every cell in the body has thyroid hormone receptors, impacting all major systems from the brain, GI tract, cardiovascular, gallbladder and liver, steroid hormones, glucose, cholesterol and body temperature. Your thyroid is too crucial to neglect, and your sexual health is important to your physical, mental and spiritual health.
