Deli Seating AreaCooking from the heart…for the Heartwith Adelle and Dr. Liz Cavin, ND
Since February’s emphasis is on theheart, Adelle and Dr. Liz will be discussingthe top foods for heart health and why.Adelle will prepare a couple easy, deliciousrecipes that utilize several heart-healthyfoods and talk about the importance of preparation. There will be food samplesalong with informational and recipehandouts available.We hope you’ll join us for this casualand intimate demo in our deli seating area.I’m glad someone asked this question.The topic of sex drive and sexualperformance can be embarrassing forpeople, yet it’s important to rememberthat heartfelt active intimacy is a vital partof maintaining healthy relationships.Low libido and compromised sexualfunction can be related to physical orpsycho-emotional imbalances, with thephysical symptoms often arising froman imbalance in our circulatory systemor hormonal system or both. To put itsimply, wanting sex depends on hormonesand having sex depends on circulation,although the full story is much morecomplicated. Fortunately nature hasprovided us with several medicinal plantsto help address these issues.One of these plants is maca root. Itgrows in the Andean Mountains of Peruand is most often used in a powderedform. It can be taken by men and womenas an aphrodisiac and to help improvesexual function. Interestingly maca isalso considered a “superfood” because itcontains several minerals, is high in proteinand ber and has been used to boostathletic endurance.Muira puama is another medicinalplant with a long history of use byindigenous people of the Amazon. Ithas been used as an energy and nervoussystem tonic, to tackle PMS and menstrualcomplaints and to help address impotenceand sexual insufciency.You may recognize the herb damiana because it is a key ingredient in a Mexicanliquor that is drunk for its aphrodisiaceffect. Studies using this medicinal planthave shown evidence of increased sexualactivity in rats of both sexes.Tribulus, our next herb, can helpaddress infertility because of its inuenceon sex hormone levels. It also may increase blood ow to the reproductive organs.Tribulus has also been used in Europe,India and China to help decrease bloodpressure and lower cholesterol.Finally, there’sepimedium. TheChinese havetraditionally used it asan aphrodisiac. It’s also been used improvecirculation, reduce fatigue and enhancesexual desire.A word of caution: To the extent thatthese herbs work by increasing blood ow,they may be a problem for individualswith high blood pressure. Since they canalso inuence the levels of testosterone andestrogen, you should seek the advice of aqualied expert when considering theiruse, as well as in addressing broader ormore specic issues with the wide range of medicinal plants and supplements that areavailable.
