Obesity and Libido

Fat cells inhibit the release of hormones that promote libido sensitivity. The hypothalamus controls the release of corticotropin releasing hormone. When released CRH activates the pituitary gland which then releases adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH). ACTH travels to the adrenal glands and activates the release of Cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that inhibits cell metabolism. When cortisol is high in the system it inhibits the uptake of cholesterol to enter in the cells. The reproductive organs of the female and the testis of the man do not get the required cholesterol to help boost the testosterone effects needed to promote a healthy sex drive. In fact, estrogen and progesterone levels drop for the female. This can cause a loss of menstrual regularity and can influence the risk of developing disease or cancer. For men the low level of testosterone can influence a higher level of estrogen. Over time this can promote dysfunction of the prostrate and can cause cancer. Cholesterol is necessary for proper functioning of the sexual organs and physiological systems. Also, with high levels of cortisol in the system chances are that serotonin levels are low. Serotonin is the "Happy Hormone" that helps regulate the central nervous system. When there is a low level of serotonin in the body then the central nervous system is depressed. Depression will also cause a release of cortisol. Many obese people suffer from central nervous depression. Cortisol inhibits fat metabolism increasing size and number of fat cells. It is a viscous cycle that tends to perpetuate as long as a person adheres to endocrine limiting factors such as; eating sugars, alcohols, trans fats, being stressed, depressed, anxious, not eating enough healthy fat and cholesterol. Overall, a person who is suffering from a low libido is most likely setting off a cascade of hormonal sequences that force inhibition of the reproductive organs. The more fat cells a person obtains the lesser the desire to have sex. This can all be reversed by reducing the increase in fat cells and nourishing the body to help keep cortisol stabilized.

  1. Low libido has become an ever-increasing issue in today's modern world as life seems harder and we all seem to be working more than ever before. Many of us have come to accept this as a fact of life and have ignored the need for sexual pleasure within our lives and really pushed sex to the back burner.

  2. I'm 47 years old and female. I was diagnosed a couple of years ago with COPD and I was beyond scared! My lung function test indicated 49% capacity. After having had the flu a year ago, the shortness of breath, coughing and chest pains continued even after being treated with antibiotics. I've been smoking two packs a day for 36 years. Being born without a sternum caused my ribs to be curled in just one inch away from my spine, resulting in underdeveloped lungs. At age 34 I had surgery and it was fixed. Unfortunately my smoking just caused more damage to my already under developed lungs. The problem was that I enjoy smoking and don't want to give up! Have tried twice before and nearly went crazy and don't want to go through that again. I saw the fear in my husband and children's eyes when I told them about my condition then they started to find a solution on their own to help my condition.I am a 47 now who was diagnosed with COPD emphysema which I know was from my years of smoking. I started smoking in school when smoking was socially acceptable. I remember when smoking was permitted in hospitals. It was not known then how dangerous cigarettes were for us, and it seemed everybody smoked but I was able to get rid of my COPD lung condition through the help of  Dr Akhigbe   total cure herbal medicine.

We contacted his email   [drrealakhigbe@gmail.com}   He has the right herbal formula to help you get rid and repair any lung conditions and other diseases, will cure you totally and permanently with his natural organic herbs,We received the medicine through courier delivery service.
