Circulation and Heart Health
The heart pumps the blood throughout the body and the blood nourishes all of our cells with Oxygen. Having a strong heart and good circulation is essential for feeling the love. Things that support circulation and heart health:
- Exercise, dance and movement
- Steam, Sauna and whirlpools
- Herbs such as hawthorn berry and passion flower
The neurotransmitters are the communicating links between our body and our mind. If these chemicals are out of balance we may feel fatigue, depression, anxiety, stress and insomnia. Examples of neurotransmitters are adrenaline, serotonin, gaba and dopamine. Each one makes us receptive in love and sex in different ways. If you feel you may be out of balance you may consider having your neurotransmitters tested and getting some targeted amino acid therapy for repair.
Our hormones are the chemicals that are secreted by our endocrine organs such as the ovaries, testes, adrenal glands, thyroid and pituitary. The sex steroids such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone must be at healthy levels for a particular age. This helps to enhance interest in love and intimacy and promotes optimal performance too. Hormone testing can be done if you feel you not in optimal balance. There are many ways to balance hormones naturally with herbs, diet and nutrition.
The adrenal glands are like our batteries. They regulate our stress hormones, blood sugar, sex hormones, inflammation, and immunity. The busy American lifestyle may cause adrenal fatigue and exhaustion. If your batteries are running low there will be no extra energy to think about love and relationships. Adrenal testing can be done to see what your reserves are like and natural therapies can support regenerating them.
It is essential to have space in your life to relax and regenerate in order to feel loving. Sleeping 8-10 hours per night is an important part of regeneration. Time for reading, baths, meditation, and movies may be a way for you to relax and regenerate.
Having fun and celebrating is one of the most important ways to increase your endorphins. Doing something fun every day! Make time to cultivate joy by doing things you love and spending time with people that make you happy. Healthy Food and Lots of Water Support your body with healthy food and plenty of water to maintain health energy and balance in body, mind and spirit.
