Dear Dr. Myrtle:

How can I improve my sexual health and wellness naturally? I am willing to make lifestyle changes, but don’t know where to start.


What a great question! Here is a list of things you can do to improve your sexual health primarily through lifestyle changes:

  1. Eat 1-2 oz. of dark chocolate (70% or greater cacao content) a day.
  2. Drink green tea if you can, or rooibos (red) tea if you don’t like green tea or want something without caffeine. Have as much as you enjoy; 2-3 cups per day is recommended.
  3. For protein, choose beans, chicken, turkey, ocean fish (not whitefish) that is wild caught, and only grass-fed beef. Eat protein at every meal to help stabilize blood sugar.
  4. Eat 3-5 servings of differently colored vegetables per day, including broccoli, leafy greens, carrots…Only eat yellow, blue or sweet potatoes, not white. Eat corn only occasionally, and only fresh kernels in season.
  5. Eat 2-3 servings of fruit per day, especially apples and berries.
  6. Eat at least 1 oz. of nuts per day (walnuts or almonds are good). Eat nuts as a snack when you are hungry to satisfy your hunger and stabilize your blood sugar.
  7. Cook with healthy oils like canola and olive oil. Avoid trans fats completely, and use butter sparingly.
  8. Avoid white flour and white sugar. Use whole wheat flour and honey, fruit sweetener or agave syrup when making sweet desserts, whenever possible. If you choose to eat a piece of cake or have some ice cream, eat a handful of nuts along with it to balance out your blood sugar.
  9. Drink lots of water. Filtered tap water is fine.
  10. Supplement your diet with the following every day:
    These will give you maximum protection against cancer and maximum help for your cell membranes. You want your Vitamin D levels (tested by your doctor) to be between 50-60ng/ml, for highest immune function.
    • A basic multi-vitamin (Theragran M is a good choice)
    • Fish Oil: 1000-4000 mg
    • Vitamin D3: 2000-4000 IU
    • Calcium Citrate: 250-500 mg (no other form of calcium).
  11. Exercise 30 minutes a day, to a sweat (or a nice glow).
  12. Enjoy at least one orgasm per week to boost your immune system and maintain your nerve conduction.
  13. Did I mention chocolate? Chocolate has both the right kind of protein for sexual health (L-arginine), and is packed with fantastic fruit antioxidants, both of which are powerfully good for your blood vessel and nerve function.

Num-num.

Dr. Myrtle
