Balance Your Hormones to Improve Your Sex Drive

11/   February, 2019

Lack of sex drive is a common reason women come into my office.

I appreciate this because sex drive – a.k.a. libido – is not only about sex. Libido reflects motivation, drive, passion in life.

Libido reflects life energy.

I also appreciate when women acknowledge the importance of sexual health and intimacy for the health for their relationships.

[I think most men are much quicker than most women to admit the importance of sex in their lives. What do you think? Comment at the end of this blog.]

Evaluating a woman with a low sex drive starts with questions about her physical health.

  • Is she perimenopausal or menopausal?
  • Does she have vaginal dryness?
  • Does she have pain or discomfort with sex?

If a woman is in menopause or perimenopause (the 10 or more years leading up to menopause), her hormone levels might be rising and falling, affecting her sleep, mood, sex drive, and more.

Is Your Brain “On Fire”?

03/   December, 2015

One of my patients recently cracked me up when she told me she is now known among her family as the one whose “brain is on fire”. What???

What she’s talking about is the mental sharpness that she has acquired from the well-rounded hormone balancing program that we have started doing together. I have only been working with her for a few weeks, and she wasn’t even feeling particularly crummy when we started. Even her husband commented that he didn’t know her “foggy brain” thing would get better with hormone replacement.

Dr. Liz has authored and co-authored several books, with a fourth book to be released soon. Be the first to know!
