Women's Sex Drive - enhanced with specialist herbs
Herbs and Female Sex Drive
"Viagra for Women" Get your VW!
Specific herbal medicines can help improve women's sex drive and potency.
Women can lose their sex-drive just like men can. But they can hide it more easily than men. But their lack of interest in sex is a simple and natural hormonal decline resulting in low desire and dry vagina. There are some rather special phytohormonal plants that can turn round the weakened female sex life. But even after 20 years of having these naural herbal tonics on the market compared to Herbal V8 for men, the sale of Herbal VW for women is less than 5%. It is unknown why women are so unprepared to admit their low sexual appetite and get herbal help like men do, but perhaps it's regarded by women that their lack of interest is due to the lack of interest in them by their man. But it is a two way street, it takes two to tango, one relies on the other. This of course means that a man's interest and amour with their woman makes her respond, improve her appearance, and this is the way it works, the way of nature; the one plays upon the other, an interaction, interplay. It takes one to start the interplay. And often it takes a natural remedy to remedy the situation and restore a feeling of confidence and sexual satisfaction. This of course is not only for man-woman relationships but man-man and woman-woman relationships, i.e. for all relationships involving sex and love. Remarkably, for those who don't know, herbs don't only work physiologically, but also psychologically, if they can be seperated. Herbs work without prejudice. They help no matter who the person is, in order to restore natural function, normal response. Herbs are not homophobic. They are not narrow minded. they don't have an 'agenda'. They work with anyone and everyone. So, women, don't bottle up your desires, open up the door to your VW and see where it will take you! The herbs in our herbal HRT remedy (FlushLess Tonic) are very different from the herbs in Herbal VW, but most women who are perimenopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal are using FlushLess Tonic to help them with their sexual disinterest rather than Herbal VW.

Is this herb basically all-natural Viagra for women?
by ERIN MAGNER 19 JUN 2017
Move over, maca—there’s another adaptogenic plant on the scene that’s got a serious knack for boosting libido, regulating hormones, and managing stress—with an added hit of girl power. I’m talking about shatavari, an Indian cousin to asparagus that has its roots in Ayurvedic medicine.
“[It’s] often referred to as ‘she who has a hundred husbands,’” says Katie Pande, medical herbalist and senior herbal advisor for Pukka Herbs. (Shatavari’s featured in the tea brand’s Womankind blend). “The association with husbands and fertility is a reference to the traditional uses of the roots, which for centuries have been used to treat and nourish women’s health.”
The plant’s so potent, in fact, that Moon Juice founder Amanda Chantal Bacon is reformulating her popular Sex Dust supplement to incorporate it (due out mid-July). “It’s incredible,” she gushes. “The thing I love about shatavari is that it’s an herb that you [can] spend your lifetime with as a woman: It’s a hormone balancer, and will increase breast milk when you’re nursing; it’s one of the herbs that’s safe to take during pregnancy; it’s great for puberty; also really great when you’re menopausal and perimenopausal; great for libido, and great for just internal juiciness.”
But that’s not even the full extent of shatavari’s benefits. According to Aviva Romm, MD, author of The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution, “several impressive studies have shown that [the plant] may be helpful for depression, stress, and burnout, and also for improving learning. It may also be helpful for blood sugar balance, reducing inflammation, and supporting healthy immune response.”
“The thing I love about shatavari is that it’s an herb that you [can] spend your lifetime with as a woman.”
Dr. Romm frequently recommends it to her patients for chronic fatigue. “In my practice, I [suggest] shatavari for women who are exhausted, overwhelmed, or are struggling with low sex drive and hormonal imbalances—especially fertility challenges and menopausal symptoms,” she says.
So how does it work, exactly? According to Pande, the plant contains two superstar compounds—shatavarin and sarsasapogenin—that are considered precursors to female sex hormones. “This means that shatavari has the ability to balance estrogen and progesterone within the body, without being over- or under-stimulating,” she says. “It can prove beneficial in treating [PMS], supporting fertility, conditions such as endometriosis and PCOS, and also during menopause.”
So, basically, it’s one of those botanical wonders that’s good for pretty much everyone, and there are loads of ways to get your fix—like liquid extracts, teas, supplements, or powders. But just because shatavari is an equal-opportunity adaptogen doesn’t mean you should be adding it to your daily supplement regimen. It’s most powerful when taken situationally to address an issue. For example, Bacon recommends it for expectant women to help boost energy during their pregnancy (once they’ve got the green light from their MD to continue an herbal supplement regimen, that is). And after they give birth, it can help stimulate milk production in new moms.
In general, Dr. Romm advises her patients that they’ll need to take it for “at least two weeks to notice effects. Once you’re feeling better, more energized, and calmer—or once your hormonal balance has been achieved—you can discontinue use.” Multi-talented and ultra-efficient? Consider it queen bee of the plant kingdom.

• Remember that herbal remedies are medicines. As with any other medicine they are likely to have an effect on the body and should be used with care. • Herbal remedies may sometimes interact with other medicines. This makes it particularly important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a herbal remedy with other medicines such as prescribed medicines (those provided through your doctor or dentist). • Treat with caution any suggestion that a herbal remedy is '100% safe' or is 'safe because it is natural'. Many plants, trees, fungi and algae can be poisonous to humans. It is worth remembering that many pharmaceuticals have been developed or derived from these sources because of the powerful compounds they contain. Any medicine, including herbal remedies, which have an effect on the body should be used with care. • Treat with caution any herbalist or other person who supplies herbal remedies if they are unwilling or unable to provide written information, in English, listing the ingredients of the herbal remedy they are providing. • If you are due to have a surgical operation you should always remember to tell your doctor about any herbal remedy that you are taking. • Anyone who has previously experienced any liver complaint, or any other serious health complaint is advised not to take any herbal remedy without speaking to their doctor first.
Few conventional medicines have been established as safe to take during pregnancy and it is generally recognised that no medicine should be taken unless the benefit to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the foetus. This rule should also be applied to herbal medicinal products. However, herbal products are often promoted to the public as being “natural” and completely “safe” alternatives to conventional medicines. Some herbal ingredients that specifically should be avoided or used with caution during pregnancy. As with conventional medicines, no herbal products should be taken during pregnancy unless the benefit outweighs the potential risk.
Many herbs are traditionally reputed to be abortifacient and for some this reputation can be attributed to their volatile oil component.(6) A number of volatile oils are irritant to the genito-urinary tract if ingested and may induce uterine contractions. Herbs that contain irritant volatile oils include ground ivy, juniper, parsley, pennyroyal, sage, tansy and yarrow. Some of these oils contain the terpenoid constituent, thujone, which is known to be abortifacient. Pennyroyal oil also contains the hepatotoxic terpenoid constituent, pulegone. A case of liver failure in a woman who ingested pennyroyal oil as an abortifacient has been documented.
A stimulant or spasmolytic action on uterine muscle has been documented for some herbal ingredients including blue cohosh, burdock, fenugreek, golden seal, hawthorn, jamaica dogwood, motherwort, nettle, raspberry, and vervain. Herbal Teas Increased awareness of the harmful effects associated with excessive tea and coffee consumption has prompted many individuals to switch to herbal teas. Whilst some herbal teas may offer pleasant alternatives to tea and coffee, some contain pharmacologically active herbal ingredients, which may have unpredictable effects depending on the quantity of tea consumed and strength of the brew. Some herbal teas contain laxative herbal ingredients such as senna, frangula, and cascara. In general stimulant laxative preparations are not recommended during pregnancy and the use of unstandardised laxative preparations is particularly unsuitable. A case of hepatotoxicity in a newborn baby has been documented in which the mother consumed a herbal tea during pregnancy as an expectorant. Following analysis the herbal tea was reported to contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to be hepatotoxic.
A drug substance taken by a breast-feeding mother presents a hazard if it is transferred to the breast milk in pharmacologically or toxicologically significant amounts. Limited information is available regarding the safety of conventional medicines taken during breast-feeding. Much less information exists for herbal ingredients, and generally the use of herbal remedies is not recommended during lactation.
Herbal remedies have traditionally been used to treat both adults and children. Herbal remedies may offer a milder alternative to some conventional medicines, although the suitability of a herbal remedy needs to be considered with respect to quality, safety and efficacy. Herbal remedies should be used with caution in children and medical advice should be sought if in doubt. Chamomile is a popular remedy used to treat teething pains in babies. However, chamomile is known to contain allergenic sesquiterpene lactones and should therefore be used with caution. The administration of herbal teas to children needs to be considered carefully and professional advice may be needed.
The need for patients to discontinue herbal medicinal products prior to surgery has recently been proposed. The authors considered eight commonly used herbal medicinal products (echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St John’s Wort, valerian). On the evidence available they concluded that the potential existed for direct pharmacological effects, pharmacodynamic interactions and pharmacokinetic interactions. The need for physicians to have a clear understanding of the herbal medicinal products being used by patients and to take a detailed history was highlighted. The American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) has advised patients to tell their doctor if they are taking herbal products before surgery and has reported that a number of anaesthesiologists have reported significant changes in heart rate or blood pressure in some patients who have been taking herbal medicinal products including St John’s Wort, ginkgo and ginseng. MCA is currently investigating a serious adverse reaction associated with the use of ginkgo prior to surgery. In this case, the patient who was undergoing hip replacement experienced uncontrolled bleeding thought to be related to the use of ginkgo.
