My wife is 60 years old and up until now, we have enjoyed an active sex life. However, after having an hysterectomy, she has lost the desire to enjoy sex so what can we do? Lost Desire, Missouri
Dear Lost Desire:
There are two types of hysterectomies, a partial and a complete (or total) hysterectomy. In the past there have been a lot of studies conducted and OB/GYN doctors do give women hysterectomies UNNECESSARILY, especially women of color.
So women should never allow a doctor to remove her eggs completely when they receive a hysterectomy. Keep at least one egg because if they give you a COMPLETE or TOTAL hysterectomy, you will be at risk for Heart Disease, Alzheimers, and Osteoporosis.
This could also be why many nursing homes today are filled with Alzheimer’s patients because of how they use to give hysterectomies, unnecessarily, years earlier. They are even calling Alzheimer’s “Type 3 Diabetes.”
If she has a complete hysterectomy, she will be at risk for Osteoporosis so she needs to keep up with her yearly bone density tests, while eating a natural diet, exercising and getting plenty of rest. Strength training for your bones will also be important.
Dairy products can actually cause an acidic environment to exist in your body and weaken your bones so she needs to only eat foods for her blood type and get off all dairy products, while maintaining an alkaline diet and lifestyle.
Along with her daily Multi-Vitamin for women, she should be taking Vitamin D3, with Magnesium and Calcuim, Omega 3 Fish Oil and Flaxseed Oil Supplements.
Every women is different when it comes a hysterectomy and just because one women experiences a low sexual drive after a partial or complete hysterectomy, doesn’t mean all women will.
Her diet, vitamin and mineral supplements and lifestyle will be key to maintaining an active sex life. Personally after having a complete hysterectomy, I never had a loss of desire, especially after maintaining a holistic and natural lifestyle. So basically that is a myth that people like to pass around.
To learn more about living a natural and holistic lifestyle, both of you should read "How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide To Becoming Healthier Over the Next 30 Days" -- available as an e-book and paperback.
