As the Year of the Dragon unfurls its wings, bringing promises of power and luck, Elix presents a unique opportunity to transform your intimate experiences. Cycle Balance, a meticulously crafted formula for your unique needs rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), is your ally in enhancing libido and pleasure. Known primarily for its effectiveness in easing menstrual symptoms, Cycle Balance holds a lesser-known yet equally delightful benefit of supporting libido.

The Role of Hormones and Libido

While a significant number of women experience a decline in sexual desire, it doesn’t have to be the norm, the root often lies in hormonal imbalance. For example, declining levels of estrogen and testosterone can contribute to a low libido. Beyond the array of sexual wellness products and therapies, the delicate equilibrium of hormones, crucial for libido, arousal, and pleasure, is supported with Cycle Balance.

In this intricate dance of hormones, testosterone and estrogen play lead roles. Achieving the right balance for your unique body is key; an excess or deficiency can lead to a range of issues, affecting not just libido but overall wellness. This is where herbal healing comes into play. TCM offers a treasure trove of herbs known for their ability to naturally support the healthy balance of sex hormones. These herbs, integral to Elix's Cycle Balance, work harmoniously to fine-tune your hormone levels, fostering a conducive environment for enhanced libido and sexual wellness.

The Birth Control Paradox

Ironically, while birth control pills promise sexual freedom, they often come at the cost of lowered libido. These hormonal shifts can dampen sexual desire. Cycle Balance can help counter this lower sex drive by supporting your body at the root, bringing it into a more balanced hormonal state. And it can be safely used with hormonal birth control, no worries about Cycle Balance interacting with and making your birth control less effective.  

Harmonizing Hormones Naturally

The interplay of hormones like testosterone and estrogen is complex, yet their balance is crucial for a healthy libido. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers a natural way to maintain a healthy rhythm of  these hormones without the side effects often associated with synthetic alternatives. Chinese medicine focuses on supporting the root, the “why” behind your symptoms, so you can feel your best everyday of the month. 

Living Holistically for a Better Sex Life

Embracing a lifestyle that includes a nutrient-rich diet, regular movement, and minimal exposure to environmental toxins can have a profound impact on sexual health. These holistic approaches create a strong foundation for your overall well-being and sexual vitality. Below are 6 lifestyle tips to help keep you ready for pleasure.  

6 Tips for Sexual Wellness

  • Connection: Practicing self-love can improve your mental health and self-esteem, contributing positively to your sexual health. Remember how amazing your body is, and all that it does. Start a gratitude journal by writing down 3 things you are grateful for daily, with one being self-focused. 
  • Recovery: Getting enough rest is crucial for maintaining energy levels, reducing stress, and balancing hormones, all of which can influence libido. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night. Or aim for consistent sleep and wake times. 
  • Stress Response: Chronic stress can put out the spark on sexual desire. Techniques such as mindfulness meditation, deep breathing exercises, and spending time in nature can help you respond to daily stressors. Turning the notifications on your phone to silent is another way to bring more mindfulness to your day. Or take a breath in through the nose for a count of 5 and exhale for a count of 7. 
  • Movement: Engaging in regular physical activity can increase stamina, improve body image, boost mood, and enhance libido. Aim for at least 30 minutes of movement a day, try to make it fun and enjoyable by getting your family or friends involved.  
  • Nourishment: Some natural and synthetic hormones and antibiotics are used in animal farming to promote growth, which can remain in meat and dairy products consumed by humans. Try to eat organic or pasture raised animal products. 
  • Environment: Ditch the bleached cotton + plastic hygiene products. Try to invest in sustainable non-toxic alternatives like silicone menstrual cups or washable and reusable pads.
