Low libido, or the lack of desire to engage in sexual activity, is an all-too-common byproduct of today’s hectic lifestyle and one that most people are hesitant to talk about. Stress from work, family and other obligations can hinder the desire to have sex. Biological causes may also be at the root of the problem.
Regardless of cause, low libido may put a heavy strain on interpersonal relationships. One partner may be suffering from low libido, while the other maintains healthy desire. This lack of congruity often causes hurt feelings, frustration and even breakdown of communication within couples. Low libido is an often-misunderstood problem.
What are the Causes of Low Libido?
Low libido may be caused by physical or psychological issues. These may include:
- Psychological problems, such as depression and stress
- Hormone imbalance, such as low testosterone
- Endocrine disorders
- Alcohol or recreational drugs
- Lack of adequate sleep
Treating Low Libido With Acupuncture
Acupuncture is not just a one-size-fits-all approach to treating issues such as low libido. The acupuncturist first spends time asking questions and getting to know the patient and his or her issues. Topics of discussion may include general health issues, mental well-being and concerns the patient may have about their sex drive. When treating low libido with acupuncture, the acupuncturist may also take the patient’s pulse, palpate the abdominal region and examine the tongue. To Chinese medicine practitioners, the tongue is a strong indicator of health probabilities.
All of these questions and the quick examination are founded in the thousands of years old diagnostic principles of Chinese medicine and acupuncture and differ from the methods of modern Western medicine.
Acupuncture is usually used as part of a bigger treatment plan when it comes to treating low libido with acupuncture. In other words, acupuncture will often be employed in conjunction with recommended dietary changes, nutritional supplements and herbal medicines. Many people report changes in their libido following treatment with acupuncture.
How Can Macabido® Be Used With Acupuncture for Low Libido?
Most acupuncturists will recommend a treatment plan for low libido which includes a healthy diet, nutritional supplements and herbal medicine. Macabido® meets and possibly exceeds many of the herbal needs of such a treatment plan. When used together, acupuncture and Macabido® may provide a strong approach to conquering low libido.
Western scientists have studied the traditional use of Peruvian maca root for medicinal purposes, a use which spans over 2000 years. The goal of these scientists has been to gain a fuller understanding of the root’s properties and its ability to treat low libido. Macabido® was developed as a result of this research.
Macabido harnesses the power of the Peruvian maca root and combines it with specially-selected medicinal plants and other nutrients. The two gender-specific Macabido® formulas, special designed for man and woman, have been shown to support healthy libido, energy and well-being.
