Five ways to lose weight during menopause

Stress is so commonplace; many just accept it as normal. We work, take care of our families, run errands, and try to fit in exercise, friends, cleaning... the list goes on and on. Sound familiar?

We don’t have to tell you about the physiological toll that stress takes on you. Not only can it have a huge impact on your physical and emotional health, but it can greatly affect your productivity, relationships, and overall quality of life.

In fact, chronic stress has been linked to headaches, stomach issues, high blood pressure, and other heart problems, as well as insomnia and restless sleep. It also weakens your immunity, making it harder for your body to fight off illness and disease. And on an emotional level, chronic stress can cause depression and anxiety.


Fortunately, there is good news. Not only are there natural, effective stress relievers, but one in particular is particularly enjoyable, if not surprising....Sex.

The Sex-Stress Connection!!

There are several ways sex helps to reduce stress, and they involve hormones (though not the ones you’d think).

First is dopamine, the "feel good" hormone that energizes and elevates your mood. This is important, because when you are sexually aroused your brain releases dopamine, which not only increases your brain’s pleasure system, but also lets stress take a back seat.

Second, when you are turned on, cortisol levels drop. Given that cortisol is your primary stress hormone, anything that decreases cortisol decreases your risk for chronic stress-related issues.

Sex and Overall Health

Reducing stress is just one of the many benefits of regular sex. In fact, it may be because of lower stress that sex is just so darn good for you.

Many of the conditions improved by sex are also improved by reduced stress.

For example, in addition to lowering blood pressure, sex has also been associated with decreased risk for cardiovascular disease.

Additionally, regular sex can improve bladder control in women and lower the risk of prostate cancer in men. And, if you are looking for a rebuttal to the common "I’ve got a headache" excuse for avoiding actually helps to ease headaches!

Finally, as any romantic comedy will show you, sex is often quickly followed by sleep. That’s because your body releases the hormone prolactin shortly after orgasm. In addition to promoting relaxation, prolactin also triggers sleepiness.


Many women in midlife that report dryness "down there" as a reason they don't enjoy sex. Well....Pueraria Mirifica Pure supplements have helped many thousands of women regain moisture and a recent review by "Rebecca" says it better than we can.
