What We Eat Can Greatly Affect Our Sex Lives ? Think About This!
Have you ever noticed that when you or your spouse are tired you are rarely in the mood for sex. This seems to be especially true of women. When they are tired the answer is almost always NO! And these days with many women having to work outside the home plus juggle family activities and housework it is no wonder by the time bed rolls around she is ready to roll over and go to sleep.
Yet have you ever noticed when both spouses are full of energy it almost always leads to sex and the more energized the better the sex.
Knowing this there are things you can do everyday to provide your body and brain more energy for things you enjoy doing - like having sex. Often his buddies may make fun of the guy who helps his wife with the housework, but I bet he's getting more then these other guys.
Aphrodisiacs and Love Foods
Consider the awesome power of the mind. Have you heard of placebos, I know you have. The work often times because people believe they will. Some aphrodisiacs work simply because you believe they will. Your brain is in effect your greatest sex organ. If the brain thinks some food turns you into a sex machine, it will. So if you believe buffalo chips will fire up your sex drive, chances are they will.
Oysters are a well-known aphrodisiac. Oysters are packed with zinc, so if you are zinc deficient, oysters may help you feel sexy.
Serotonin is a chemical the brain produces that can boost your sexual desire. Stress lowers the levels of serotonin. Some studies have shown low levels of serotonin are linked to poor ejaculation and low sperm count. A combination of foods containing the amino acid tryptophan and certain carbohydrates can reduce stress and increase levels of serotonin. For example 4 - 6 ounces of fish, poultry or lean beef with bread or pasta.
Androsterone, a potent male hormone, is thought to attract females, and is found in celery. Researchers speculate that when you eat celery, you can release the androsterone through perspiration after digestion. Women can't typically smell this, but some things are sensed subconsciously and women can be attracted to this.
Also the smell of pumpkin pie can increase blood flow to the penis according to a study.
With all this focus on foods and nutrition remember that the most important attribute is to pay attention to your partner. This can be the most powerful tool for putting your partner in the mood for great sex.

Milk Soy Protein Intolerance: A Mothers Perspective
I first learned of Milk Soy Protein Intolerance (MSPI) in the office of a pediatric gastroenterologist's office with my seven-week-old son, Max.

A Look at Lactose Intolerance
Lactose is the primary carbohydrate in milk. Cow's milk contains 4-5% lactose, whereas human milk contains almost twice that amount. Lactose provides 30-50% of the energy in milk, depending on the fat content (skim vs. homogenized). A number of individuals are affected by lactose in the diet, but there is a difference between intolerance and maldigestion.
Unchaining Yourself from an Unhealthy Food Addiction
The cry of "I have no willpower!" often emerges from the consumers who jokingly surrender to their lack of will when it comes to eating something clearly unhealthy. However, scientific nutritional research has identified that something much more serious ? much more dangerous ? is often at work here. For many people, what they perceive as a harmless lack of willpower is actually an addiction an addiction to chemicals that the brain secretes in response to stimulation by certain foods, such as chocolate or cheese[i].
Eggs For Balance
The egg, the symbol of birth, of life and, therefore, of spring has been celebrated by numerous cultures at this time of the year. Eggs were given as gifts at spring festivals in ancient Egypt, Greece, Persia and Rome. They were often dyed red to symbolize the power of the womb. Eggs, of course, still play an important role in our springtime holidays, but the real power comes from handling and eating eggs at this time of year. It is said that at the exact moment of the Equinox an egg can be balanced on it's end because the earth is at it's ultimate balance point (if you try it, write me and let me know how it went!)

You Are What You Eat
Your magnificent machine is, in fact, a symbiotic collection of diverse, yet related sub-systems, coordinated and operated by a three pound mass of wrinkled gray matter known as your brain. Yes, our bodies are a true miracle, a wonder to behold. Every minute chemical change in one body system can adversely effect or benefit any or every other system. A small electro-chemical imbalance in our brain, our control system, can mean a near shutdown of our entire body. Precision balance is the standard mode of operation.
