sex drive down

Hi everyone!!!
Read the previous entry about sex drive. I have other symptoms but I can live with them. I want to know if anybody has heard of some natural remedies to increase the sex drive. I want to have sex but there seems to be a disconnect going on with my body. I would like to know if anybody has tried any herbal remedies.
Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the forum corrinet! Here's a bit of info I found that might give you some answers:

Sexual drive is a personal issue. While some men and women desire to have sexual relations with their partners on a daily basis, others may be completely satisfied with having sex once a week, or once a month. There's no "right" or "wrong" when you're dealing with sexual drive. It all depends on individual preference. However, if your libido is a running a bit lower than normal, you may need to try some natural remedies for the loss of sexual drive to help get you back on track.

Eating Fava beans can actually help some people. These beans, which are naturally found in North Africa and Southwest Asia, are kidney-shaped beans in a pod. The difference between Fava beans and other types of beans is that this legume actually produces L-dopa in the human body. L-dopa, in turn, helps increase the levels of dopamine. Dopamine helps improve your mood, as well as your libido.

Some people are actually allergic to Fava beans. Talk to your healthcare professional before you start eating these legumes.

Another natural remedy for the loss of your sexual drive is to eat more foods that are high in zinc. Having a low level of this mineral has been shown to adversely affect men's and women's libidos. Oysters, for example, contain a high amount of zinc. Oysters have long been said to be an "aphrodisiac." Eating or taking an "aphrodisiac" is supposed to sexually arouse a person. (The term originated in Greek mythology. "Aphrodite" was the goddess of love and fertility.)
