(NaturalNews) There are many reasons why a person's sex drive can suddenly start to wane unexpectedly -- excess stress, rapid aging, poor nutrition, and chronic depression are just a few common causes of low libido. But resorting to those little blue pills to fix the problem in an instant should be a last resort option, as there are plenty of natural remedies for treating this common condition that address its root causes rather than its symptoms. Here are a few helpful ways to naturally increase your libido without the need for pharmaceutical drugs:

1) Supplement with adaptogenic herbs to fix your hormonal balance. For many people, and particularly men, low libido is a direct result of low testosterone, which is often caused by perpetual exposure to estrogenic foods and chemicals. The modern world is a rather unfriendly place for men, it turns out, as plastics, soy, fluoride, and other toxins deplete men of their vigor over time, and leave them feeling weak and uninterested, or even unable to effectively engage, in sex.

Besides eliminating these estrogenic exposures as much as possible, it is important for men to actively fight back against this anti-testosterone onslaught by supplementing with adaptogenic herbs like maca root, ashwagandha, Siberian ginseng, cayenne pepper, astragalus, damiana, and ginkgo biloba, to name just a few. Such herbs not only aid the body in holistically adapting to various exposures and stress, hence the name adaptogen, but they also help improve circulation, warm the body, and correct underlying hormonal imbalances that could be the cause of low libido.

"Specifically, adaptogens recharge the adrenal glands, which are the body's nominal mechanism for responding to stress and emotional changes," explains Dr. Edward C. Wallace, N.D., D.C., in an article on adaptogenic herbs published by Nutrition Science News. And it is this normalization that can help correct low libido in both men and women (http://www.chiro.org/nutrition/FULL/Adaptogenic_Herbs.shtml).

2) Get your liver, kidneys in working order. For some people, poor-functioning organs are responsible for a depressed sex drive, as the amount of toxins going into their bodies exceeds the amount being flushed out. Poor fat metabolism, digestive problems, nutrient malabsorption, blood sugar problems, weak immunity, neurological problems, and hormonal imbalances are all common symptoms associated with a toxic liver, for instance, which can eventually lead to renal failure. And urinary incontinence and kidney stones are associated with poor functioning kidneys.

If you ever hope to truly restore a healthy sex drive, you must regularly cleanse these and other organs. Coffee enemas are one great way to keep your liver in tip-top shape, as they not only cleanse and heal the colon, but also directly flush the liver, which is the body's primary filter for collecting and eliminating toxins (http://www.naturalnews.com). Juice fasting, supplementing with probiotics, drinking plenty of clean, fluoride-free water is also helpful for cleansing both the liver and kidneys (http://www.naturalnews.com/025229_body_blood_food.html).

3) Exercise, practice yoga. If you spend a lot of time sitting throughout the day, whether it be in your chair at the office or on the couch at home, chances are you are not getting enough regular exercise to combat stress and promote healthy circulation, two factors in low libido. Whether you are a man or a woman, exercise plays a crucial role in promoting healthy sex drive, not to mention health in general.

If you enjoy sports, try joining a local pick-up team that meets several times a week. Particularly if you are a man, you might also join a local gym and sign up for strength training classes that involve shorter-duration, higher-intensity workouts to promote muscle building. Moderate strength training not helps build strength and stamina, but it can also help boost testosterone levels naturally (http://www.naturalnews.com/037674_libido_mens_health_sex_hormones.html).

4) Take natural aphrodisiacs. Many of the herbs used in cooking ethnic or spicy dishes are also natural aphrodisiacs, which means they can help put you in the mood for sex by promoting relaxation, releasing inhibitions, inspiring passion, and sometimes even directly stimulating erogenous zones. By eating such foods on a regular basis, and particularly within the half hour before intimacy, you can help boost your sex drive more subtly by naturally stirring your senses, which is far safer than taking prescription drugs.

Common aphrodisiacs include anise seed, cardamom seed, cayenne pepper, cinnamon bark, cloves, coriander, cumin seed, curry, fennel, garlic, ginger, mustard seed, nutmeg, parsley, rosemary, sage, turmeric, and vanilla (http://www.motherearthliving.com). Just be sure to seek out non-irradiated varieties of these herbs, as irradiation tends to denature nutritional quality and reduce potency.
