Most of us hope to have great sex long into our lives. Fortunately, traditional natural medicine has thousands of years of practical experience to prove that we can. Practitioners of Asian medicine, in particular, have been working on this issue for a long time and have come up with some good methods to keep you able in the amorous arts. Everyone has heard about The Kama Sutra, the ancient Indian text that it is an extensive treatise on the subject.

According to Indian philosophy, the goal of life is to experience and master the balance of four complementary areas, which, taken together, make up the fulfillment of a lifetime. The first three sound fairly tame—righteous practices, enjoyment of material possessions and spiritual aspiration. But the fourth area might be the most misunderstood. Kama is romantic and sexual love and all its associated pleasures of the senses. Practicing all four leads to a meaningful and joyous life in this world and helps us move on to spiritual freedom, according to The Kama Sutra. The erotic life is an important, integrated element of the human life, as important as eating.

Most people enjoy sex and hope their romantic life will continue indefinitely, but about 30 million American men suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED), and there’s a general sense that sexual desire, performance and pleasure, in men and women, will unavoidably wane as we age, much to our disappointment. Perhaps a little waning is inevitable, but the physical degeneration can be much less than we might think.

To keep the fires burning, though, first we have to restore and balance the bodily functions that have been taxed by the wear and tear of daily life. Marks of aging all come from, in one way or another, shortage of the body’s “juices,” from arthritis (with lack of joint fluids) to fatigue (with lack of endocrine hormones) to menopausal difficulties (with vaginal dryness). Rejuvenating your sexual spark includes lifestyle and dietary support and herbal medicine that strengthens, purifies and nourishes body tissues to bring back the glow of youth—the “juiciness.”

Make a Date to Rejuvenate

Sex rejuvenation comes in two forms: lifestyle and medicine. Attending to both keeps you healthy, passionate and affectionate. This is a total body and mind makeover, and may take awhile, so let’s get started with some everyday tips for staying in the mood.
