How Can I Restore My Sex Drive Before It Is Too Late?

Libido or sex drive isn’t an easy topic to talk about openly with your spouse, let alone going outside your home to seek help.

The quote above was meant to make you smile and understand this is a problem common to humankind.

This article aims to help you begin your journey to resolving this problem most couples in middle age will face at some point in their relationship. This article covers the following topics:

  1. How Did I Lose My Sex Drive?
  2. What are My Options to Restore My Libido?
  3. What is the Next Best Step for Me?

How Did I lose My Sex Drive?

There are five significant culprits as you approach or live through middle age. This is certainly not an exhaustive list, just a short list of significant contributors.

  1. Alcohol intake
  2. Mental health concerns (such as stress, anxiety, or depression)
  3. Erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness
  4. Hormone imbalances
  5. Unresolved relationship issues

Some long-term conditions can also affect your sex drive (such as heart disease, diabetes, an underactive thyroid, or cancer).

The point of this article is to direct you to a solution.

I’m assuming you’ve researched by now the causes and approaches to treating low libido. I will briefly summarize your options for moving forward and then move into my recommended solution.

What are My Options to Restore My Libido?

You can essentially go two ways to restore libido – the traditional medical approach or a get-to-the-root-cause approach.

1. Traditional Medicine Option

Traditional medicine starts with an exam at your primary care physician’s office.

You’ll be probed about the state of your relationship and tested in primary biomarkers. From there, your physician will recommend referral to a counselor for relationship issues and potentially prescribe erectile dysfunction medication or a lubricant for vaginal dryness.

Referral to an endocrinologist can result in hormone replacement therapy as a potential solution (for both men and women).

Finally, for mental health concerns, your primary care doctor may refer you to a psychologist who may prescribe medicine for anxiety, stress, or depression.

2. Functional Medicine Option

An alternative solution is to seek out the root cause of your low libido.

A functional medicine doctor will run a different set of tests to establish where you have physiological imbalances.

Libido and sexual dysfunction can be a “canary in the coal mine” problem – a symptom of a more significant problem. You must seek medical advice as you invest in solving this problem.

A root cause approach will examine all the drivers of cellular health, which affect organ health and leads to how your overall body functions.

Tiger Medical Institute practices medicine in this manner, utilizing extensive testing to establish a comprehensive picture of your overall health.

The underlying drivers of low libido can be resolved through supplementation, new habit formation, and lifestyle change.

Tiger Medical system will reduce your stress load, improve sleep, potentially identify genetic factors contributing to mental health problems, and find the root imbalances in your health. Additionally, our clinicians conduct imaging of your brain and cardio systems to improve the investigative process into why you feel and function the way you do.

It’s important to note that if your libido is driven primarily by emotional issues in the relationship and you are otherwise in excellent health, no medical intervention will be helpful. Only relationship counseling, in that case, is the best path forward.

What is the Next Best Step for Me?

Tiger Medical Institute is a comprehensive medical transformation. Our clinicians find the root cause of your libido concerns, and our coaches help you make the necessary changes to get the desired results.

As you begin to fix the underlying issues, you feel better, leading to your body’s better functioning.
