Natural ways to boost libido

Natural ways to boost libido

1. Manage anxiety
Having high levels of anxiety is a common barrier to sexual functioning and libido for both males and females. This may be anxiety due to life stress or specific sex-related anxiety.People with an intense work schedule, caring responsibilities, or other life stresses may feel fatigued and, as a result, have a low sexual desire.Anxiety and stress can also make it more difficult for someone to get or maintain an erection, which can put a person off having sex. A 2017 review of erectile dysfunction in young men has suggested that depression and anxiety can result in a reduced libido and increased sexual dysfunction.

2. Improve relationship quality
Many people experience a lull in sexual desire and frequency at certain points in a relationship. This may occur after being with someone for a long time, or if a person perceives that things are not going well in their intimate relationships.

3. Focus on foreplay
Having better sexual experiences may increase a person's desire for sex, thereby boosting their libido. In many cases, people can enhance their sexual experiences by spending more time on touching, kissing, using sex toys, and performing oral sex. Some people call these actions outercourse.

4. Get good-quality sleep
Getting good sleep can improve a person's overall mood and energy levels, and some research also links sleep quality to libido. A small-scale 2015 study in women suggested that getting more sleep the night before increased their sexual desire the next day. Women who reported longer average sleep times reported better genital arousal than those with shorter sleep times.

5. Eat a nutritious diet
Following a nutritious diet can benefit people's sex drive by promoting good circulation and heart health, and by removing specific foods that can decrease libido. Metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease can affect physical sexual functioning. Also, polycystic ovarian syndrome can affect hormone levels, which may also disrupt libido. Eating a diet rich in vegetables, low in sugar, and high in lean proteins can help prevent disorders that affect libido.

6. Try herbal remedies
There is little research into how effective herbal remedies are at improving sexual function in males and females, though some people may find them beneficial. A 2015 review study states that there is limited but emerging data that the following herbal remedies may improve sexual function:

maca
tribulus
gingko
ginseng
People should be wary of using herbal medicines without their doctor's approval. Some herbal medicines can interact with existing medications, and the Unites States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) do not regulate them. For this reason, their quality, purity, and safety remains unclear.

8. Get regular exercise
Getting regular exercise can help libido in many ways. A 2015 study of men undergoing androgen deprivation therapy, which lowers testosterone levels, found that regular exercise helped men cope with issues such as body image concerns, low libido, and relationship changes.

7. Maintain a healthful weight
Some scientists link overweight and obesity to low sex drive, along with other factors related to reduced fertility. This is associated with hormonal factors, such as low testosterone concentrations. Some people who are overweight may also experience psychological effects, such as lower body confidence.

9. Try sex therapy
Sexual desire is complex, with both psychological and physical components. Even when a person has a physical condition that affects libido, such as diabetes, improving the emotional and psychological response to sex can improve libido and sexual functioning. Therapy is an effective strategy for increasing low libido. Individual counseling can help address negative views about sex, self-esteem, and secondary causes of low libido, such as depression and anxiety. Relationship counseling can help some people work through factors affecting their sexual desire.

10. Quit smoking
Smoking cigarettes can have a negative impact on a person's cardiovascular system. Good heart health is important for good sexual functioning. People who smoke cigarettes may find that their energy levels and sex drive increase after they quit.

What is mesothelioma?

What is mesothelioma?

What is mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that begins to grow in the pleural membrane. Your chest contains two thin layers of cells – an outer layer that lines the inside of your rib cage and an inner layer that covers your lungs. These layers are called the pleura or pleural membrane. Each layer is about as thin as the skin of a balloon.
The space between the two layers is called the pleural space and it normally contains a small amount of fluid. This fluid lubricates the two surfaces and lets your lungs and chest wall move and expand as you breathe in and out.

Types of mesothelioma:
Epithelioid mesothelioma is the most common type. This type of mesothelioma grows more slowly than others, so it might respond better to treatments. Sarcomatoid mesothelioma is less common. It tends to progress more quickly and has a poorer outcome from treatment.
Biphasic mesothelioma is also uncommon. It’s more aggressive than epithelioid mesothelioma but grows more slowly than sarcomatoid mesothelioma.

Desmoplastic malignant mesothelioma
Desmoplastic mesothelioma is categorized as a sarcomatoid cancer, which is typified by a poor prognosis. In this case, the life expectancy following diagnosis is usually less than one year. In one seven-year study (1982-1989) that evaluated 255 cases of mesothelioma, researchers identified 17 cases of desmoplastic mesothelioma. Of those, 11 were sarcomatoid and six were biphasic. The mean survival from the onset of symptoms to death was 5.8 months for the sarcomatoid variant and 6.8 months for the biphasic variant.

People who is at risk?
The main cause of mesothelioma is breathing in asbestos dust. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibre that was widely used in construction and other industries until the late 1990s. It was used to insulate and fireproof buildings and was commonly used in ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, boilers and spray coatings used on ceilings and walls.
The use of products containing asbestos was banned in the UK in 1999. But it’s still found today in many buildings, including homes, schools and hospitals. There are now strict guidelines about removing asbestos safely. Mesothelioma takes a long time to develop. It’s normal for people to get the first symptoms 30 to 40 years after they were first exposed to asbestos. So people who have symptoms now might have been exposed many years ago.

People who worked in industries which used asbestos are at higher risk of developing mesothelioma. They include:
1.carpenters and joiners
2.plumbers, heating and ventilation engineers
3.electricians, electrical fitters
4.pipe fitters
5.metal plate workers, shipwrights, riveters
6.labourers in other construction trades
7.sheet metal workers
8.construction operatives
9.energy plant operatives
10.painters and decorators
11.building inspectors
12.vehicle body builders and repairers
13.metalworking production and maintenance fitters
14.shipbuilding workers
15.railway engineering workers

16.people who have worked on DIY projects, particularly Artexing ceilings or working with guttering or insulation materials

You can also develop mesothelioma if you lived with someone who worked with asbestos. They may have carried asbestos fibres home on their clothing, where family members could breathe them in. Some people who develop mesothelioma can’t remember coming into contact with asbestos and might not have been aware they were exposed to it.
Older people have a higher risk of mesothelioma than younger people. This is partly because it takes so many years for mesothelioma to develop, but also because they are more likely to have come into contact with asbestos before the dangers were known.
Mesothelioma is much less common in women, probably because they are less likely to have worked directly with asbestos.
