Is sex on your mind, but for the wrong reason? As a woman, are you feeling less receptive to sex? Have you noticed feeling less sensual, or that your sex drive has diminished? If so, you’re not alone. This is a major complaint from most women experiencing Hormone Imbalance, which directly affects your libido.

It’s common knowledge that Testosterone plays a significant role in both men and women when it comes to a healthy libido. But one of the more common deficiencies in women is Estrogen, which plays as much a role in a woman’s sex life as Testosterone.

In my practice, I have seen women with optimal levels of both hormones who still suffer with a low sex drive. Hormones are much more complicated than just pinpointing one symptom to one hormone. You can have optimal levels of both Estrogen and Testosterone, but if your Progesterone is elevated above normal, that also contributes to low libido. Take into account that all three hormones could be out of balance, and one person could have three different hormones working against them.

If low libido is effecting your quality of life, you do have options. How are you to know if your hormones are in balance and contributing to this condition? There is a very simple and accurate saliva test I offer to my clients, which, when analyzed by the lab, produces a clear picture of what’s going on. If a problem is identified, I then work with my clients on an individual basis to balance their system, not with drugs, but naturally. Sometimes adjustments are as simple as slight changes in diet. Other times, it’s a little more involved. Either way, the end result can be life changing.
