A Wonderful Resource for ALL Women (4 stars)

Ladies, if you've ever found yourself in tears over an aspect of your sexual health and didn't know where to turn please consider picking this book up.

I'm not a medical professional, just another woman suffering from personal sexual issues who was desperate for some answers. As it happened I saw a copy offered up for review right around the time I was at an emotional breaking point over the problems that had seeped into my sexual relationship and it couldn't have been there at a better time. Traditional medicine has its place and unfortunately hasn't helped me yet.

GREAT SEX, NATURALLY is the perfect resource for perspective and an understanding of your options both in traditional and alternative medicine. I've always been open to both but with my particular issues didn't know where to start. My doctors kept telling me things like needing more relaxation time and drinking more water, to ask my spouse to focus on certain things and I'd pretty much given up on asking them for help after three years of worthless advice.

This book stresses that sexual health is all part of overall health and therefore does focus greatly on lifestyle changes in the early chapters. Fortunately, much of it is easy to accomplish if you're willing to change some of your poor lifestyle habits for the sake of your health. In particular I found that focusing on bringing healthier foods into my diet was an area I could easily change with much benefit. Other areas include meditation and physical activity, acupressure and focusing on specific ailments and their treatments.

What ultimately both floored and uplifted me was the areas focusing on hormonal imbalances. Taking hormonal birth control in my younger years caused dramatic emotional and physical problems for me forcing me to find other methods. Years later I'm having a whole slew of similarly dramatic problems that I quickly realized upon reading GREAT SEX, NATURALLY were likely due to a hormonal imbalance. I then asked around and found that the specific one I was concerned about actually runs in my family. It was a revelation that gives me hope I can take what I've learned and see a physician for the proper tests to get to the bottom of it. Tests I wasn't even aware were an option until I read this book. From there I now also have alternative medicinal options such as herbal supplements and bio-identical hormones (something I didn't know existed!) to work with.

If you're plagued by health issues that affect your sexual health, a lacking libido, struggling with menopause, or just looking for ways to improve your sex life—there's even a wonderful section focusing on male sexual health issues!—I cannot recommend this book highly enough. So much of what I learned here was information no M.D. had ever bothered to give me, I feel like the issues I was sobbing over a couple of months back might have an end in sight. If nothing else it has given me power over my sexual health I didn't know was mine for the taking. If I could personally thank Dr. and Mr. Steelsmith for their hard work putting this book together I would!
