Low sex drive is extremely common today and is usually the result of biochemical imbalances affecting both male and female. Low libido or reduced sexual desire tends to occur more in women, but can occur in both men and women. A common cause of reduced sexual desire in both men and women, and especially women, is an overall lowered energy level - If the body’s energy level decreases you may feel less interested in sex.

This is most often caused by stress, underactive adrenals and thyroid glands, a sluggish oxidation rate (burning your food too slowly) excessive toxic metals or other indicators of lowered energy production in the body cells. Other symptoms include; vaginal dryness that can cause pain or discomfort with intercourse. In many cases, there is a tendency for depression and some psychological withdrawal, as well.
