Our only break so far was a week in Dorset which was lovely.
Many people with health problems who I speak to will typically find that their symptoms often improve when they are on holiday.
This can be for a few reasons, including reduced stress, improved food quality (sometimes), more time outside and perhaps reduced exposure to certain toxins and chemicals in and around our homes.
Energy and libido can often improve dramatically on holiday.
These can be a really effective gauge of overall health but is typically something that is very low in people who are suffering with their health.
Unfortunately, I can’t pack you off on holiday but here are some common killers of libido and energy to look out for when you suffer with your health…
Iron is needed to help get oxygen into your cells, and low iron levels will often result in both fatigue and low libido.
This is something that is normally relatively easy to get checked with your doctor.
However, if you find they are low you also need to be questioning why that is (and resolving that).
For example, it could be loss of blood, or it could be inflammation (in which case working to reduce inflammation is beneficial).
Additionally, including certain things such as red meat, liver, and green leafy vegetables in your diet can all help.
The ingredients in Advanced Vitality have been shown to help support iron absorption so may be worthy of consideration here if you find you are deficient.
You shouldn’t supplement with iron specifically though unless you know you are deficient, as excess levels can also be a problem.
One very common side effect of certain medications is low sex drive and fatigue.
Obviously I’m not saying just cut out your meds as that potentially would lead to other problems if you haven’t got to the cause of your issues, but certainly can be a factor.
Stress can be a huge killer of libido and energy levels.
Aside from just packing up and going on holiday, there are many ways to help reduce stress in your life and giving these some focus is important for not just your libido, but all of your symptoms.
Personally, I find a nice relaxing walk can be really good for stress levels, as well as taking a few minutes each day for some deep breathing exercises.
Certain nutrient deficiencies have been linked with low libido and energy and are reasonably common.
Therefore, amongst many other things, a Multivitamin and Mineral product such as Advanced Multi is well worth considering.
Low Fat Intake
I often mention this as it’s such a common problem, but when people eat too little fat in their diet, or eat the wrong type of fat, this can have a huge impact on healthy hormone production (which in turn leads to poor libido).
Including things such as coconut milk or oil, avocado, oily fish (or fish oil) and extra virgin olive oil can, therefore, be really beneficial.
I really do hope that the above can help. Any questions let us know!
