[Male Menopause? Say it ain’t so!] Restore youthful levels of health & well-being!

Many people commented on last week’s ezine with my list of libido-boosting foods and my brother’s article on chocolate (at that same link)… and yes, several of you even tried some of his delicious and decadent chocolate recipes.
A few of you scolded me saying “aphrodisiacs” alone won’t bring back one’s youthful playfulness (I totally agree, there are a lot of lifestyle decisions that affect hormone health and thus one’s sexual health and libido).
And others said that a lack of libido in your relationship …

Nourishing your gut for a healthier you

As we consider our health priorities, an important topic for all of us is our “gut” health. More and more research is supporting that gut health is intertwined in everything…and if our gut isn’t healthy it can make our bodies turn on us and can make us miserable and unhealthy in so many ways…

He definitely knew what he was talking about and I agree that the single most important thing you can do …

The peacefulness of the scene was so beckoning that I moved from my office to finish my daily journaling, trying to capture how truly grateful I am to be surrounded by such love …
