How to Improve your Sexual Wellbeing with Natural Products

When people think of sex they either go weak at the knees or are consumed by shame and guilt. It is an area that is often not talked about and often not fully understood. But your sexual health is an important part of your entire wellbeing. Yet many people leave this important component of their health to chance, or ignore it completely, because of fear or embarrassment about the physical check up process. Or because of unresolved shame.

Empathy from a good practitioner

True, the physical examination of your genital region or sex organs can feel uncomfortable and embarrassing. You are exposing your body to another person, and you may feel a degree of shyness or reticence about this. That is why it is especially important you approach all your sexual health matters with practitioners that are sympathetic, ethical and understanding.

Empathy is the key.

How many women procrastinate and put off having a pap-smear?

How many men put off that all-important prostate check?

You can deal with your sexual health in a number of ways.

You can of course follow traditional western medical approaches. For women, this will involve:

  • A brief consultation
  • Pap smear
  • Breast examination
  • Brief discussion about sexual history and practices

History of previous STI’s

Menstrual cycle

Discussion of safe sex practices

Questions and answers involving specific problems such as sexually transmitted infections etc.

For men, this may involve:

  • Prostate check-up
  • Sexual history
  • Any history of STI’s
  • Questions and answers about specific problems that may be occurring.

You may also be referred for further examination or for specialist appointments.

You can augment these necessary western medical treatments with some high quality natural remedies and with a visit to a good naturopathy clinic.
