These Drugs Are DESTROYING Your Sex Life
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
I’m sick and tired of drug companies and their false choices.
I was reading an article the other day about all the drugs that kill your sex drive. BUT, the main point the article was trying to get across was this:
Would you rather:
- Have sex or avoid a heart attack?
- Be happy or enjoy your sex live?
- Have an erection or have high blood pressure?
Save your life or have sex? Who wouldn’t choose drugs?
This sales technique is what I call “false choices” – because it suggests that sometimes you have to give up things like sex to save your life.
That’s bull. Why not have both (sex and good health)?
With a few simple changes, it’s easier than you think.
Pharmaceutical companies downplay the side-effects of their products, claiming their drugs are so important to your health that it doesn’t matter what they do to your sex life.
Take a look at some common drugs and how they affect your sex life:
- Antidepressants: drop libido, decrease vaginal lubrication, dull sensation, lower orgasm, increase erectile dysfunction.
- Antihistamines: lower libido, reduce vaginal lubrication, increase erectile problems.
- Blood Pressure Meds: decrease sex drive, increase erectile difficulties
The same side-effects occur in hair loss medications, high cholesterol drugs, birth control pills, and pain killer… and many others.
But here is what drug companies don’t understand: ruining your sex life is not a minor thing for your health.
Sex is important because it:
- Keeps your immune system running
- Lowers your blood pressure
- Is a form of exercise
- Lowers heart risk
- Decreases pain
- Reduces risk for prostate and bladder problems
- Improves sleep
- Eases stress
While the drug companies downplay the importance of sexual health, you can see just how important it is to your health.
If sex was a drug, I could make billions selling it because it does so much good for you.
And don’t kid yourself – Big Pharma has made a fortune selling sex pills like Viagra to treat the very conditions its other meds are causing.
What a RACKET!
So what can you do?
First, if you’re taking any of the drugs I mentioned and are having problems in the bedroom, talk to your doctor about alternatives (and whether you still need to be on the drugs at all).
Second, keep reading… because in the next several issues of Living Well Daily, I’m going to introduce you to natural remedies that run circles around these prescription meds… but without the risks.
Your sex life is an important part of a good healthy life. Don’t let the drug companies take it away from you, just so they can make a buck.
