During these times of extraordinary stress, one common complaint from both men and women is the lack of sex drive and libido. Is it just because we’re too busy, or around our spouse more than normal that our sex drive and libido are disappearing? Or is it actually a physiological change as a result of the stress response in our body?
Loss of Libido? Blame Stress!
When your body is chronically stressed, cortisol, aldosterone, and epinephrine increase and start a negative cascade of hormonal reactions. As a result, testosterone decreases significantly in men, and estrogen and progesterone decrease significantly in women. Additionally, your adrenals become fatigued and your kidneys, which “hold up” your adrenals, become inflamed. Your kidneys are where you hold your “Life Force” or your Drive – your Drive for work, your Drive for exercise, your Drive to be your “Best” at whatever your endeavor is, and your SEX DRIVE.
What’s more, is that your cortisol, aldosterone, and epinephrine cause your blood sugar to increase and lead to weight gain (without eating anything differently), and cause water retention. This can lead to insulin resistance and Type II Diabetes. Those two things alone will make you feel worse and have a negative impact on your sex drive. Furthermore, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen decline, leading to other symptoms like hair loss and muscle loss.
Lastly, the LOVE hormone, oxytocin, is negatively impacted by the increase of cortisol, aldosterone, and epinephrine. Our goal is to increase your oxytocin to combat the negative impact of stress, to improve insulin sensitivity, and above all, improve sex drive.
How Do You Balance Your Hormones, Increase Oxytocin and Increase Your Libido Naturally?
With the right supplements supported by lifestyle changes, you can 100% increase your libido naturally! The following is where to start.
Acceleradine® regulates Estrogen production and cleans the blood so the liver can detox the estrogen properly. Iodine decreases estrogen in the receptor cells which helps reverse Estrogen Dominance and increase usable testosterone.
It also helps with fibroids, PCOS, and other issues related to hormonal imbalances. Acceleradine® is also anti-inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant, which helps neutralize the inflammation and oxidative stress that leads to Estrogen Dominance.
Acceleradine® also triggers healthy apoptosis (natural death of traumatized and unhealthy cells), which helps reverse Estrogen Dominance and increase testosterone in men and women. As testosterone increases and hormones are optimized, libido increases. Acceleradine® is the only iodine that is enhanced with Scalar energy, radiation free, 100 percent absorbable, and can reverse damage done to the DNA.
Hormone Fixxr focuses on raising testosterone in females gently and naturally. It will help increase libido, fat burning, energy, motivation, and drive.
Shine Mist may help increase testosterone in men and women, increase energy, libido, strength, immunity, stem cell growth, and improve mood. It contains frequencies to enhance its efficacy. The ingredients include Canadian Pine Pollen, Tongkat Ali, Polyrhachis Extract, Blue Spruce Oil, Ginger Oil, and Sage Oil.
If sex hormone binding globulin is high, it renders those beneficial hormones like testosterone, T3, and estrogen inactive in your body. As a result, metabolism slows down, strength and energy decrease, mood declines, and libido declines. Bedroom Fixxr binds up the SHBG so that your testosterone and other “feel good” hormones are optimized.
Julva Feminine Cream
This helps those suffering from a lack of energy and lack of desire to initiate sex; difficulties with arousal or orgasm; discomfort due to vaginal dryness; and embarrassing urine leaks.
Accelerated Keto®™ puts your body into ketosis and fat-burning mode within 30 minutes.
It helps to control appetite and increases physical and mental energy, as it teaches your body to utilize its own fat stores for energy. As your energy increases and your cravings for sugar decrease, you are able to intermittently fast, and reduce Insulin Resistance, cleanse the liver, clean up the excess estrogen, increase testosterone and libido, reduce inflammation and reduce oxidative stress. All of these factors improve libido in the bedroom
Where Accelerated Keto®™ is different from any other exogenous ketone supplement is that it has multiple herbal cofactors in the formula to increase ATP production in the cells (which is your true ENERGY), to “De-Fat” the liver where fat burning occurs, hormones are regulated, and sugars are processed. The liver is where the body detoxes the xeno-estrogens that bind up usable testosterone.
Low-functioning thyroid leads to fatigue inside and outside the bedroom. By combining two different formulas into one, Accelerated Thyroid™ is a powerful supplement that can help support thyroid health naturally, and provide the following benefits:
- Improve Hormonal Balance
- Increases Metabolism
- Increases Fat Burning
- Helps Prevent Fatty Liver
- Increases Mental and Physical Energy
- Accelerates Wound Healing
- Encourages Strong Connective Tissue & Bones
- Provides Immune Support
- Provides Mood Support
- Strengthens Digestion
- Is Essential for B12 Production
Virility Caps promote male fertility and are useful for impotence, poor sperm count, and poor sperm mobility.
X39 Stem Cell Activation Patches

Alcohol increases estrogen and lowers testosterone in three ways:
01| Alcohol increases Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth which will increase the recycling of estrogen, leading to less free testosterone
02 | Alcohol increases estrogen on its own
03 | Alcohol will increase aromatase conversion of testosterone into estrogen in men and women.
Intermittent fasting helps:
- Increase growth hormone and testosterone
- Improve insulin sensitivity
- Reduce inflammation
- Reduce Estrogen Dominance
- Reduce belly fat, visceral fat, and liver fat which all lead to low testosterone
- Improves the overall balance of hormones.
By reducing belly fat, a reduction in aromatase occurs which causes testosterone to convert into estrogen. Moreover, during an intermittent fasting window, the body is engaged in autophagy, where the body “cleans up” the useless and damaged tissues, decreases the inflammation that causes pain, and helps heal the gut and improve nutrition absorption. All of these factors lead to healed tissues and an improvement in hormonal balance.
Focus On Wild Fish and Wild Animal Protein
Omega 3 fats and proteins from wild animal proteins like bison, lamb, deer, and elk provide the needed anti-inflammatory building blocks for hormonal balance, without causing inflammation in the body. The healthy cholesterol provided in the animal protein is the building block for the sex hormones. On the other hand, protein from chicken, poultry, and conventional beef contain amyloid proteins that will disrupt the gut, leading to Alzheimer’s and creating a cascade of detrimental effects in the body including hormonal issues.
Wild animal proteins also help stabilize blood sugar and encourage insulin sensitivity, and improve bile production for liver detox. When the liver is functioning optimally, estrogens are minimized, leading to optimal levels of testosterone. Furthermore, they help suppress the cravings for carbs and sugar that dysregulate insulin and lead to lower free testosterone.
Eliminate Processed Foods and Sugar
Processed foods and sugar increase beta-glucuronidase, cause Leaky Gut, increase inflammation, and increase the recycling of estrogen. As a result, free testosterone will become limited.
Laughter, Pets, Joyful Activities
Having fun, playing with pets and joyful activities will naturally increase oxytocin and improve your libido, lower cortisol, and improve your blood sugar.
Hugging, caressing, thinking about sex, teasing texts, flirting, and foot rubs will all increase oxytocin. As you fake it, you can increase your oxytocin, which can in turn increase your libido. There is some truth to “Fake it till you make it!”
