Best Foods to boost libido

Ladies, we need all the help we can get when hormones are fluctuating in the perimenopause and menopause.

Your sex drive, or libido, is greatly influenced by biological and physical factors. What you put into your body can have a direct impact on how you feel and how your body reacts to physical stimulation.

Different foods stimulate different hormones and chemicals in your body and stimulating the right ones can help improve your libido.

Here are some foods that can help improve your performance and increase your sex drive.

1.Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C and a host of antioxidants, both of which have been linked to higher sperm count in men.

2.Avocados are good for your health in general, but especially for your heart health and blood circulation. They are packed with vitamins E and B6, potassium, and monounsaturated fats, which are all important for a strong, healthy heart.

3.Almonds contain selenium, zinc, and vitamin E. These minerals and vitamins have been shown to improve sexual health and performance. Zinc is helpful in producing testosterone, while vitamin E is good for heart health and selenium is helpful with fertility issues. The omega-3 fatty acids in almonds may also improve sex drive.

4.Sweet potatoes are rich in potassium, beta-carotene, and vitamin. Potassium helps with high blood pressure, which has an impact on erectile function. The beta-carotene provides vitamin A, which may be helpful in cases of infertility.

5.Pesto is great for peak performance because of its high levels of zinc. Women with higher levels of zinc are found to have better sex drive, and the pine nuts in pesto are an excellent source for this.

6.Watermelon is a great libido booster. It contains more lycopene than tomatoes and is comparable to Viagra in its ability to relax muscles and increase blood circulation to certain areas of your body.

7.Pomegranate is good for virility. Pomegranate has a positive effect on erectile dysfunction and has antioxidants that are linked to improved blood flow.

8.Coffee contains a particular stimulant that promotes a good mood, especially women.

9.Chocolate increases both serotonin and dopamine levels, leading to a happier, more relaxed, and less stressed state of mind. It is a great mood booster and has been shown in studies to heighten feelings of arousal and sexual passion.

10.Celery contains steroids called androsterone and androstenol. When consumed, these chemicals travel through our sweat glands and work to attract the opposite sex. It also has arginine, which helps expand blood vessels in the same way Viagra does.

One of the best foods to help balance hormones – Flax seed.

If you are looking to improve your diet and adopt a healthier lifestyle for a happier you, switch your diet to include healthy fats instead of carbs for better, balanced hormones. These include foods that are high short, medium, and long-chain fatty acids, which are essential in managing your hormones, keeping your inflammation levels low, boosting metabolism, and supporting weight loss.

One simple way of realizing our goals of taking better care of our minds and bodies is the addition of a small, shiny seed into our meals.

Flaxseed, also known as linseed, can help you lead a healthier life. It has been shown to improve blood sugar levels in diabetics and reduce cholesterol. It is considered a superfood because of its high dietary fiber and omega 3 fatty acids.

Flaxseed is also a great source of lignans, a form of phytonutrients that offer potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics.

Flaxseeds are versatile and easy to use. Incorporating flax into your meals is a very low maintenance way of reaping exponentially more benefits. Flaxseed contains a wide array of minerals, healthy fats, and vitamin B that can help promote healthier hair and skin, resolving issues of redness and flaky skin and reducing acne, eczema, and rosacea. Flaxseed oil is also a great moisturizer.

Researchers have also found that the lignans present in flaxseed may help reduce the risks of breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancers.

Flax seeds improve metabolism by acting like natural gum. Flaxseed is rich in mucilage gum, which assists in nutrient absorption. It helps by keeping food in the stomach for longer periods of time, allowing for maximum nutrient absorption. The mucilage gum is water-soluble, which also enables better removal of toxins and waste and soothes the stomach lining.

The lignans do not stop there. They can help regulate female hormones in the bloodstreams, act as phytoestrogens, and provide antioxidants. This regulatory effect on the female hormones is helpful because it presents a natural alternative to hormone replacement therapy, reduces the risks of osteoporosis, and helps regulate menstruation cycles.

Flax seeds do not only improve life by improving your health, but they serve as healthy substitutes for cooking and baking. Ground flax is a good way to substitute flours that contain gluten. This is particularly beneficial for those who are afflicted by celiac disease or those who may be sensitive to gluten. Flaxseed is a multipurpose ingredient that serves as a powerhouse for better health.

Biohack for Bulletproof Coffee to support your brain and your hormones

Do you love coffee?

I encourage you to limit caffeine intake as it can be dehydrating plus it can put a strain on the adrenals and the hormones. if you’re like me and you love your one coffee a day or encourage you to try this recipe.

 

What is Biohacking?

Biohacking is the process of making changes to your lifestyle in order to “hack” your body’s biology and feel your best. Biohacking is improving the health of your body using external tools, and the term is gaining popularity as part of an increasing move toward improving health and wellness.

Here are a few simple biohacks I recommend to my perimenopausal and menopausal clients

  • Do not use alarms to wake yourself up with a sudden jolt; start waking yourself up naturally and gradually
  • Incorporate smart supplementation into your diet to support the adrenals and your gut health. Vitamins A, C, D, magnesium and zinc are all fundamental to gut health and hormone balancing.
  • Incorporate some good fat into your daily diet. Coconut oil, avocado, hemp oil and cashews are all good fats that help hormone harmony.
  • Try breathing deeply throughout the day. Diaphragmatic breathing is a great way to control stress and support the digestive system
  • Love dark chocolate? Try eating sugar-free dark chocolate.
  • Track your sleep length and quality; start trying to get at least 8 hours every night. The earlier you go to bed the better it is for happy hormones.
  • Try bulletproof coffee

 

What is Bulletproof Coffee?

Bulletproof coffee is a type of coffee used to enhance cognitive abilities. Concentration, attention, focus, and intelligence are all cognitive abilities that affect the performance of our social and professional lives. Bulletproof coffee is one way to enhance that performance and stay alert in all situations.

Bulletproof coffee is becoming increasingly popular among athletes and business people to improve their cognitive abilities and attain higher levels of energy.

The magic ingredient in bulletproof coffee is unsalted grass-fed butter. Yes, this coffee has butter in it, but it also has the highest performance and lowest toxin level. It has all the benefits of healthy fats without the casein proteins found in milk.

 

How to Make Bulletproof Coffee

Here is a simple recipe for bulletproof coffee for improved cognitive abilities and energy.

 

Ingredients:

Organic coffee beans ground fresh

Unsalted grass-fed butter

MCT Coconut oil

 

Recipe:

Using filtered water, brew 1 cup of coffee just off the boil along with 2½  tablespoons of coffee beans that have been freshly ground. Gradually add about 1 tablespoon of MCT oil to the hot coffee. Follow with 1–2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter. If you do not have unsalted grass-fed butter, you can use grass-fed ghee. Blend until it is frothy for 20-30 seconds.

 

 

 

Easy Ways To Improve Your Appearance During Menopause

Ladies, we want to look our best during the Menopause. After all, it can boost your self-esteem and make you feel better about yourself. Dieting and exercising are important in the transition to menopause but so is your gut health.

As effective as these are, they aren’t the only ways to improve your appearance. You also wouldn’t need to do something as drastic as cosmetic surgery. Instead, you could implement a few changes into your daily routine to help balance your hormones and improve your digestion. 

As minor as these may seem, they can have a much larger impact on your appearance than you’d think. Combining them together will maximize this impact.

I know you are here to improve digestion, beat belly bloat and perhaps lose some weight.
Here are my top 7 tips to get you started. Sometimes it is the simple things that will make a massive difference.
Do you do these already?
 Drinking plenty of water?
 Taking little breaks during the day?
 Deep breathing before your meal?
 Chewing well?
 Veggies for breakfast?
 Diversity on your plate?

How To Look Better During Menopause

Take Care Of Your Mouth and Oral Microbiome

Your smile is one of the first things that many people notice when they see you. While it mightn’t be something they focus on, it can drastically affect how you look. You’ll need to look after it. The easiest way of doing so is by brushing regularly.

You might need to have certain things done, however. These can range from teeth whitening to a root canal treatment. It’s recommended that you get these done as early as possible. Alongside helping to improve your smile, most treatments focus on preventing future issues.

Oil pulling is a gentle technique for improving the microbiome in the mouth. It can be done with olive sesame or coconut oil. Put one dessert spoon of oil in the mouth and swish around for two minutes. Add either two drops of peppermint or two drops of tea tree oil to help improve the texture and the coating on the tongue. Followed by tongue scraping this technique helps remove bacteria from the mouth. You can watch some techniques here. 

Take Care Of Your Personal Hygiene

While personal hygiene is an obvious thing to focus on, it may be something that many people overlook. There are quite a few aspects involved in this, with brushing your teeth being notable.

Showering or bathing several times a week is also mandatory. Getting a skincare routine by adding in extra nutrients in your diet will help you navigate a smooth menopause. 

Make Sure To Stay Hydrated

Few people think of how hydration can affect how they look. If you’re dehydrated, you’ll look so. The more dehydrated you are, the more it will affect your appearance. Typically, it’ll make you look worn out and tired, which you should want to avoid.

There are other ways that dehydration can affect your body. These will go farther beyond how you look, as it can affect energy levels, how well your body operates, and much more. Keeping well-hydrated will be essential for avoiding all of this.

The fact that it can help you improve your appearance is a nice benefit on top of this.

Wrapping Up

As much as each of the above can improve your appearance during menopause, they’re no replacement for looking after yourself physically and mentally. Proper dieting and exercising are recommende. Adding some other methods on top of this will help support hormones and improve diegstion. 

Make time to exercise regularly. These tips can be helpful in maintaining an attractive appearance during your transition to menopause. If you would like further support for your menopause journey book a free half hour call here to see how I can help. 

How To Choose The Right GP for Your Menopause Journey

Whatever the reason you find yourself looking for a new doctor you want to be sure you choose the right one. Choosing the right doctor for you and your menopause needs is important as very little outranks your health and wellbeing. What is more, you want to visit a GP that you can confide in and trust, one you have confidence in. Here are some considerations you can make when choosing your next GP. 

Location and facilities

The location of your doctor is essential, if you are opting for an NHS doctor then you will need to research the practices near you and ensure that you are eligible for the surgery location you have chosen. Proximity is of course important as you do not want to find yourself unable to get to the doctors now or in years to come because of the distance. Can you walk there? Do you need to? What about transport links? You could do a test run to find out how easy it is to get to the practice. 

Once you are there have a good look around and get a feel for it and the facilities available. Is it accessible? Does it look professional? Clean? Welcoming? Are the staff friendly? Do they offer treatment rooms? Minor surgeries? Are there any affiliated practices such as dental or pharmacies? If you are opting for private medical treatment do they offer high end consulting rooms? Do they have the facilities you need and expect? To give you an idea of what to expect from private consulting rooms and practitioners, Medifit Design and Construct showcase some of the latest and innovative medical providers and their treatment rooms. 

Gender and ease of booking

There are times when you might wish to see a doctor of a particular gender and you are completely within your rights to do so. It may therefore be prudent to select your doctor with their gender in mind and any particular ailments you may have. Alternatively, you may wish to select a practice that enables you to see a variety of doctors and offers you the option to request a doctor of a particular gender or skillset on the day you need to see them. 

Understanding Hormones and Women’s Health 

Many surgeries now have menopause specialists so ask your receptionist for a Doctor who understands the menopause journey. While a general practitioner is qualified to treat a wide variety of medical complaints some GP’s will take a special interest in certain medical areas. For example, it could be in women’s health, minor surgeries or weight management. Does your prospective practice have a specialty or potentially several? Do you need one? Research any particular fields of interest your GP practice may have or alternatively seek out those which would benefit you.

Private Testing

With long waiting lists you may wish to consider private testing. As a Nutrition Gut Specialist, I offer private comprehensive stool, hormone, thyroid and full blood panel tests. They can be ordered promptly. Tests are done in the privacy of your own home and results are delivered quickly via a secure client portal. I can work together with your GP to get you the support you need.

Opening hours and online services

What are the opening hours and do they suit you? Some general practitioners offer early morning or late evening appointments, is this something you need? What about the online options? Doctors surgeries are moving online more and more, giving patients more flexibility. Can you book appointments online? What about undergoing consultations online or renewing prescriptions? Do you want to and will this service make your life easier?

Do you wonder if you have hormone imbalances?

Do you wonder if you have hormone imbalances? As we reach perimenopause and menopause, the fluctuations in hormones can cause bloating, insomnia, fatigue, skin conditions, anxiety and irritability.

It is helpful to get to the root cause of the imbalances with the use of the Dutch hormone test. As a nutritionist supporting women with digestive issues, I rely on the Dutch test for my female clients with adrenal and sex hormone imbalances.

The results give me very specific information about how to handle problems such as bloating, sleep issues, weight gain, painful periods and chronic tiredness.

The Dutch test measures your hormone metabolites from dried urine samples. The hormones include:

  • Cortisol
  • Cortisone
  • Estradiol
  • Estrone
  • Estriol
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • DHEA and DHEA-S
  • Melatonin

This test also measures your cortisol and cortisone rhythms and levels, and your estrogen metabolism pathways. The test is also beneficial for women struggling with fibroids, PMS, irregular periods, painful periods, anxiety and moodiness, and endometriosis. This test also works well for monitoring hormone replacement therapy effectiveness. This test also shows how you metabolize estrogen through your liver. If you don’t metabolize estrogen well, your risks of estrogen-related cancers such as breast, cervical and uterine cancer can increase.

Doing the test is really easy and can be done in the comfort of your own home. The instruction instructions are clear  for both the collection of saliva and little strips that are dipped into your pee. You take four urine samples at four different times of the day, and they don’t have to be on the same day. You also take 5 saliva tests during the day. Then you simply fold up the dry test strips and mail them in the enclosed envelope.

If you want to shed light on your cortisol rhythms, metabolism, adrenal, cortisol, and sleep problems this test is THE most cutting edge, comprehensive, functional medicine hormone test.

Each test result is unique. Each treatment or solution is also unique. Wonder what your hormone picture is?

Your results will end the guesswork about whether or not the root cause of  your symptoms is due to hormones and adrenal fatigue.

If you are struggling with stress, trouble sleeping, waking up tired, energy slumps throughout the day or difficulty recovering from exercise.

If you need caffeine in the morning to wake up, or throughout the day to function, if you are bloated and have unexplained weight gain.

Even if you have injuries that are slow to heal, frequent colds or difficulty regulating blood sugar, Get in touch.
