Sexual energy, to decrease
When a person is obsessed with sexual fantasies in an unbalanced way, the underlying cause is often a severely weakened adrenal system (yin deficiency in Chinese medicine). In this case, it is important to tonify the adrenal system and clear any "false heat" that may be created in the body by the inability of the adrenals to produce anti-inflammatory steroids (cortisol). It is also necessary to avoid heating foods, such as sugar, red meat, and alcohol, and stay away from too much sun exposure, especially in the hot months of the year. A balanced diet of grains, vegetables, and legumes is beneficial.
Treatment Plan for Sexual energy, to decrease
An herbal program can consist of adrenal tonics (eleuthero, Amercan ginseng in small amounts, rehmannia and ligustrum). The most effective anaphrodisiac (lowers sexual desire) is skullcap.
