Libido Help: Women Through the Ages:  Life, Love & Libido in Our 40s

Our 40s rock! What doesn't rock is what's happening to our bodies. Even though the average age of menopause is 52, the early forties is when ovaries begin their final preparation for shutting up shop completely, and menopause. The ovaries actually start to slow down 10-15 years before menopause so our early 40's is when most of us officially start what is called perimenopause.   
The bad news is that this decline can not only lead to testosterone deficiency symptoms like low libido, weight gain, mental instability and mood swings, but also symptoms of estrogen deficiency, including hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, heart palpitations, and skin changes. Ouch! 
Don't despair, and don't wait any longer. All of these changes are hormone-related and can be alleviated with proper hormone therapy. Don't stand by idly when your body is screaming for some expert attention. The 40s can and should be an impressive sexual peak for us. We just have to get these hormones in check.

Natural Allergy Remedies

Allergy season seems to be starting already for some folks, we're with Dr. Ed Lamadrid to talk about natural remedies and ways people can find relief. 

Build and Support your Immune System:                

Vitamin A: Found in apples, carrots and broccoli. It is necessary for healthy mucous lining
Vitamin C: Found in citrus fruits, green peppers, strawberries, and broccoli. 
Necessary for a healthy immune system, Omega-3 fatty acids may act to lower the amounts of inflammatory chemicals produced by the body after exposure to an allergen. Found in walnuts, flaxseed and fish (like salmon). Although additional research is needed, it appears that a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids may help decrease the incidence of hay fever.

Honey: serves as vaccine to pollen. Must be local honey. 1 teaspoon a day.
Ginger tea and raw honey. It strengthens the immune system and acts as a natural antihistamine.

Treat the Symptoms:

Quercetin: A natural plant-derived compound called a bioflavonoid, it is found in onions, apples, green tea, black tea, leafy green vegetables and beans. Quercetin helps stabilize mast cells and prevents them from releasing histamine. It helps block the release of histamine that causes inflammation.
Peppermint tea relieves nasal and sinus congestion. Drink it cold to sooth coughing associated with hay fever and allergies. 
Chrysanthemum tea relieves red & itchy eyes
Stinging Nettles: behaves in much the same way as many of the drugs sold to treat allergies, but without the unwanted side effects of dry mouth and drowsiness. 
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine: Research has shown that acupuncture has been shown to be effective in relieving the symptoms of seasonal allergies and may also have a preventative effect.
