The Menopause is a state of mind. That was the overiding message if you happened to see the program fronted by Mariella Frostrup, still a very alluring women well into her 50s.
This article is aimed at Women to bust a few myths and for Men realize that women can be beautiful and vital whatever their age so please read this whatever gender you are. I too am in my 50's and as fit as I've ever been, I still do all the action activities that I did as a teenager, riding horses at a serious level, swimming in the sea, cycling, hill walking and other outdoor pursuits.
So apart from HRT which is a questionable route how can we sail through the change of life. In this program they looked at all the alternative methods although strangely not yoga or Qi Gong.
Firstly the women who practiced mindfulness and deep breathing reported up 90% less symptoms, they could recognize when a hot flash or anxiety or insomnia was on its way and used this coping mechanism to reduce the effects.
The ladies who took part in exercise reported far less symptoms and bone density loss than those who did no exercise. They surveyed runners and cyclists.
Japanese women are reported to suffer least from menopausal symptoms and this was put down to diet consisting of Soya products and plenty of oily fish such as salmon including sushi. Eating a healthy diet with no processed foods was one of the most important factors.
Qi Gong practice has specific gentle movements to regulate your internal thermostat there are also yoga moves as well that give your body hormonal balance, none of these involve difficult movements or a level of fitness, the best is just putting you legs vertically against a wall and breathing, how simple yet effective is that!
Kegel exercises keep your vagina lubricated, tight and work for bladder control.
Qi Gong and gentle yoga also provide relaxation to allow you to sleep properly yet give you energy through the day.
Breathing techniques also calm the mind and give you focus and clarity and raise your serotonin levels vital to combat depression.
So please pass this on to anyone you know who is blaming the menopause for ruining their sex life, their body and making them anxious and sleep deprived, it really doesn't have to be that way. It's a mindset and the view that society has held for way too long.
If you need professional guidance on how to change 'The Change' then you're welcome to call me for an informal chat on 0870990970
Wishing you peace and joy.
It's a bold statement I know. But I'm seeing the effects first hand and I'm providing treatment for men who may have only been using porn for a short number of years. Imagine how serious this might become for the younger generation who have found porn in their teenage years.
Viewing porn doesn't always lead to addiction, it's like anything - all is good in moderation.
But any habit that forms to our detriment becomes an issue when it starts to negatively impact our life or affect those around us.
So why does porn lead to Erectile Dysfunction? When you start to rely on the visual then the sensory perception becomes numb, your body doesn't react to touch, scent and personal stimulus. The brain is overloaded with imagery the body (penis) becomes numb and disconnects from the brain. Normally all senses come into play to create sexual fire.
Although it might not affect every man it's certainly something men should be aware of if their porn viewing is more frequent than sexual relations. If your erection cannot be sustained during lovemaking to mutual satisfaction or if orgasm becomes less sensational thus less satisfying, more porn is not the answer.
More touch, more relaxation, more sexual energy is the answer. Wouldn't a man rather be stimulated by sensual touch, hot kissing, the warmth of a real person beside you, the feel of a hot wet vagina and your lovers arms enveloping you in a private heaven.
If porn addiction or overuse/reliance is affecting you and your relationship I can show you how to overcome porn addiction with natural techniques that bring far more powerful orgasmic pleasure for you and your partner and also enable you to overcome addictive behavior.
Please note all sessions are conducted in a fully clothed respectful environment.
One of the main reasons men contact me is because Viagra or Cialis has stopped working or has never worked for them. Something your doctor won't tell you is 'you don't need them!' There is a natural way to regain your erection more powerfully and intensely.
Viagra, Cialis and Levitra also inhibit an intensified orgasmic state.
These so called miracle drugs which list their side effects as nausea, headaches, facial flushing, diarrhoea, stomach pain, chest pain congestion, dizziness, low blood pressure, colour blindness and blurred vision are just doled out by most doctors without looking at their patients lifestyle or emotional state. Also if you suffer from heart problems, stroke or some other medical conditions you are advised against taking them. They have always been a money making gimmick for the pharmaceutical companies that trades on men's insecurities.
Talk therapy can only address part of the cause and there comes a time when talk therapy is done and you have to move on to practical therapies that release tension in the body.
So many times during a session a man has told me they are terrified they'll never experience penetrative sex again.
A circle of anxiety easily builds up and the nervous mind takes over and the body shuts down.
To obtain an authentic erection takes takes a little more time, not just seconds which may have been the case eg. in your twenties or younger. The body changes over the years and a lasting erection should be fueled by natural sexual energy, not only visual stimulation (more on that subject on another blog).
During a Sexual Healing Session you learn how to fully relax, only then can sexual energy flow.
When you engage with your senses the mind stays in the present with an ability to fully enjoy sexual/sensual stimulation.
Performance Anxiety causes your breath to be shallow. By breathing into your body you allow all your vital organs to work efficiently, this allows blood flow into the genital area and energizes the whole body.
You have sexual energy centres. By knowing how your body flows and where your sexual energy centres are located, you or your partner can activate them. These sexual energy centres are not only in your genital area. Areas of your body can hold tension which blocks sexual stimulus. This also fuels your passion for life and your life force energy.
All this is covered in a session of 2 hours or more depending and the reasons behind your visit.
Holistic Sex Therapy can also successfully enable men who are on anti-depressants, medication or who are recovering from Prostate Cancer and Spinal Injuries, I've personally been able to help many men over the years overcome the torment of being unable to sustain an erection to penetration and ultimately orgasm and to be able to satisfy their partners in a more intense way.
Sleep is vitally important for cells to regenerate and for the vital organs to cleanse and repair, if you're sleep deprived then this can effect your erection, these methods also balance your body to relax and regain a regular sleep pattern.
Stress, Anxiety and overthinking the past, all associated with modern living kill an erection, I can help you overcome this with relaxation techniques.
Tension held in the body blocks the sexual sensation, movement and self massage techniques unlock this tension, I can explain how and where during a consultation.
Unfortunately alcohol affects your testosterone levels so sometimes you may need to make some lifestyle choices.
If you would like to take the alternative route to sexual wellness or other methods haven't worked for you then I welcome your call and I can tailor the session to your needs 0870990970.
All sessions are in a fully clothed, tranquil, private environment.
Wishing you light and love again.
You can overcome premature ejaculation.
Premature Ejaculation affects 1 in 3 men at some point in their life that's a great number of the male population, so you are not alone. Although late at night after another failed attempt it may not feel like that.
We no longer need our fight or flight mechanism, man has evolved from that necessary anxiety of red alert for predators. So in our safe haven we should be able to relax and enjoy.
There are options out there and you may have considered Psychotherapy; this treats the mind, thoughts associated but it doesn't link with the body's responses if the tension is held in the body and it can't reprogram the body to enjoy sensuality.
Sadly some doctors will prescribe antidepressants such as Priligy, this only numbs the mind, and the body's responses and alters your body chemistry with toxic pharmaceuticals which can actually lead to a depressed sex drive.
Gels and anesthetic creams, these numb sensation, why would you not want to feel the touch of your partner or her wet vagina, this is part of lovemaking.
There is the holistic method to overcome premature ejaculation and this is what I can offer you. Teaching these methods for many years I can safely say it works because my students have told me it does. It not only frees you from the anxiety associated with premature ejaculation but teaches your body to enhance the whole orgasmic experience. To be fully 'in the moment' during lovemaking, to enjoy the sensuality your body was designed for so you and your partner can experience a deep connection and bliss.
There are many reasons that trigger premature ejaculation and holistic treatment engages your mind body and soul to find a natural balance which frees you from this condition and enable you enjoy all the benefits of a satisfying sex life. These practices originate from the Tao and have been used for centuries for sexual vitality and vigour and longevity.
You may call me 0870990970 in complete confidence to discuss how I can help you.....naturally. No pills, no potions, no magic creams, just you.......naturally.
The 7 Chakra system simply relates to the main organs in your body or they can also be referred to as centres of energy. In Sanskrit Chakra translates to wheel or vortex, these relate to the sources of energy required to run your vital organs, when energy is depleted it causes illness or imbalance in the body.
The Chakras also relate to each vital organ through the emotional state. When we hold on to the past, the memory is not only held in the mind but the cells of the body too. When we are well in mind and body our Chakras are in balance.
This is easily reflected in times of nervousness or fear: we feel sick to our stomach or we have a gut reaction to a decision, a remark whether good our bad touches our heart, we may emit tears of joy or sadness on hearing sensitive news. That's when emotion is felt in the body our Chakra centres.
We also hold tension in parts of our body creating headaches or for instance in our abdomen, digestive problems, lower back pain, anxiety or low self esteem all are linked to a certain organ or Chakra
During a healing touch session I perform energy practices on all the Chakras so eventually this energy will spin in harmony. All those vital centres plus hundreds of others located all around your body are linked to acupressure points and are touched or receive healing energy to activate the sources of your positive energy or Chi (life force energy).
If you're in optimum health, a session will enable you to reach your full potential in life and tune your body to resonate in perfect harmony with yourself, loved ones and the Universe.
Wishing you Love, light and Laughter.
