Dr. Kumar-Singh demystifies Ayurveda and other integrated medicine, showing how these simple, ancient practices are the key to unlocking a healthy modern life.

As an acupuncturist and herbalist in private practice, Christine DeLozier, L.Ac., specializes in sexual health, treating all orientations and identities. Acupuncture is great for sexual function, but to address the underlying mechanics of consistently great sex, the key is diet.

After seeing how meaningful this improvement was to their lives, she specialized in sexual health, expanding her practice to all who seek it. She wanted to do more to help them connect with their partners and bring joy to their relationships.

 

We discuss:

Common sexual symptoms/issues that aren’t normal & could potentially be improved with dietary changes Issues with some of the conventional meds.

How does diet affect our sex lives

How do men & women differ?

Which hormones & neurotransmitters are usually out of whack

How does Traditional Chinese medicine promote sexual health?
