Addyi (flibanserin), the drug marketed for “hypoactive sexual desire disorder,” is ineffective and unsafe. What About Dietary Approaches to Female Sexual Dysfunction?

“The Creation and Promotion of ‘Female Sexual Dysfunction’ [as a mental disorder] is a textbook case of disease-making by the pharmaceutical industry,” paraphrasing the first edition of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which listed frigidity as a mental disorder along with homosexuality. The latest manifestation is “hypoactive sexual desire disorder,” a disease invented by pharmaceutical companies. For example, when Prozac was about to lose its patent, “the company sponsored the creation of the condition premenstrual dysphoric disorder, which is presented as a more serious form of premenstrual syndrome,” and used this new so-called mental illness to create a drug with the Market name Sarafem, “that was simply Prozac repackaged” in a pink capsule. “The condition previously known as shyness has been branded as social anxiety disorder to give Paxil a marketing advantage…”

“There are certainly women who suffer from low libido, but there is no reliable scientific evidence that hypoactive sexual desire disorder is a real medical condition.” And women can be diagnosed with even normal libido. “A woman who is very interested in sex, just not with her current partner, may still qualify for a diagnosis” — and the drug. Even a “woman who is satisfied with her sex life may still qualify for a diagnosis of hypoactive sexual desire disorder if her partner is dissatisfied…”

“The story began in 2009 when [drug company] Boehringer Ingelheim first applied for approval of flibanserin, an unsuccessful antidepressant, for the treatment of hypoactive sexual desire disorder in premenopausal women.” But there was a problem. It did not work. The application was resubmitted after careful consideration and again denied, as was the appeal. But in 2015, the FDA approved the drug. “What changed? Nothing about efficacy. The resubmission didn’t include any new benefit data.” The drug didn’t work better. What changed is that the company that bought the drug “helped create a new advocacy group, Even the Score.” The fake grassroots group lobbied “journalists, women’s groups, Congress and the FDA” for approval and used “the feminism argument to point to … approval for equality reasons (men have their drugs ; we want to urge our) when in fact feminism is a reason to object to flibanserin. How can it be feminist when doctors tell women what is normal and prescribe pills to control their sexual desire?” within 48 hours of FDA approval, flibanserin was sold…for about $1 billion in cash.Very gratifying.”Very gratifying for the drug company, “but what about m ith the women taking flibanserin” now sold as Addyi? Little. The drug just doesn’t work as advertised.

It may encourage monkeys to groom each other more, but when researchers dug up the unpublished data on the drug, any clinical benefits turned out to be “marginal, with statistically and clinically significant side effects.” [side] Effects.” In fact, “flibanserin is not only ineffective in many women, it is also a dangerous drug.” Combining it with alcohol “can cause dangerous hypotension and syncope [fainting]- Issues so serious that the FDA put a black box warning, their most serious safety warning, on the label,” which unfortunately hardly anyone reads. In fact, “flibanserin can cause a sharp drop in blood pressure and sudden, persistent loss of consciousness even without alcohol.” Well, these kinds of serious side effects “might be acceptable for a cancer drug, but they’re totally for a drug given to healthy women for a made-up condition.” unacceptable.”

Are there safe and natural solutions? There are many studies on men’s nutrition and sexual health, but what about women? As I discuss in my video Flashback Friday: Are Apples The Best Food For Better Sex Life In Women?, Research shows that women with high cholesterol report reduced sexual function on a number of dimensions. This may explain why a more plant-based diet, rich in a variety of whole plant foods, “might be effective in improving sexual functioning problems in women” as it does in men — more whole grains, beans, vegetables, in fact and more fruit and less meat, dairy, and sugar have been linked to a reduced risk of erectile dysfunction — because the anatomy and physiology of sexual responses between men and women are actually quite similar. As you can see below and at 4:21 in my Videousing fancy MRI techniques, you can measure clitoral swelling within minutes of recording an erotic video.

And we now know that lubrication is also about blood flow. “Inside the sexually aroused vagina,” the hydrostatic pressure from all that extra pelvic blood flow forces fluid “to get to the surface wall of the vagina as vaginal lubrication.” How can we improve blood circulation? Well, the flavonoid phytonutrients in cacao can help open arteries by increasing pulse wave amplitude after drinking cacao for four days, peaking about 90 minutes after consumption, as shown below and at 4:54 p.m can see in my Video.

Can this Valentine’s Day chocolate make a difference? Women who eat chocolate tended to have higher female sexual function index scores compared to women who did not eat chocolate, but the effect disappeared once age was accounted for. “Despite all the potential biological mechanisms that support a role for chocolate as an aphrodisiac food,” the study failed to show any benefit. One would assume that chocolate could improve blood flow, but remember that this was the case with cocoa powder. Perhaps the fat and sugars in chocolate counteract the benefits. What Are Some Whole Food Sources of Flavonoids? As you can see below and at 5:35 in my Video, Onions have a lot. In fact, fresh onion juice promotes copulation behavior — in rats. For those of us who are less interested in “increasing the percentage of rats that ejaculate” and are looking for something other than onion juice for our hot date, how about an apple?

Until now, “there has been no study looking at the potential correlation between daily apple consumption and sexual function in women.” The women were divided into two groups, either regular daily apple consumers or those consuming less than one apple a day. The result? The hundreds of apple eaters in the study performed significantly better on the Female Sexual Function Index.

Note that the researchers only included women who ate unpeeled apples because the phytonutrients are concentrated in the peel, so we don’t know if there’s an association with peeled apples. And this was only an observational study, so “further studies will be needed to clarify…the relationship between apple consumption and female sexuality…However, the present data may allow the development of future research to identify new compounds and dietary supplements for use in restoring female sexuality.” “Okay… or you can just try to eat an apple.
