APHRODISIACS AND ENHANCING YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
Even the greatest of relationships, the most virile of men and sensual of women, find a waning of their erotic power at times. It is at times like this that you may wish to resort to the use of foods of erotic splendour. Otherwise known as aphrodisiacs, these foods are said to have a direct effect on your sexual and sensual performance. There are natural and synthetic aphrodisiacs. Historically the naturally occurring foods have been said to offer you considerable joy in the art of love.
Historically, the word is derived from the name of the Greek goddess, Aphrodite, who was regarded as the Goddess of Love and Beauty. The use of the word somehow may have been used to imply a taking in of Her powers for the purpose of enhancing your performance in lovemaking. An aphrodisiac is said to offer you the following benefits:
Naturally the ever increasing modern approach to lovemaking has overlooked the fact that your mind and brain are the most erotic of your bodily organs. Therefore no amount of aphrodisiacs or sexual foods will substitute for a harmonious sense of self and balance in relationships, which can only be acquired through your own spiritual integration.
It is well known that most of the difficulties that men experience in their sexual lives eg premature ejaculation, lack of erection, and even the incapacity to share feelings, stem more from a psychological basis than a physiological problem. Relaxation itself is a thoroughly useful aphrodisiac.
There are times however when such things as stress, overwork, anxiety and general life crises impinge on your performance. During these periods aphrodisiacs may be of use in rejuvenating your erotic interest and stamina.
Three of the most powerful aphrodisiacs are:
Ashwagandha - by far the most potent of sexual and rejuvenative tonics according to Ayurvedic medicine is Ashwagandha. It is said to give the vitality and sexual energy of a horse. Its botanical name is Withaniasonnifera. It is a general tonic, also assisting the nerves as well as the sexual organs. It is particularly useful when your whole system is run down, possibly even from sexual excesses.
Damiana - Even the botanical name of Damiana, turnera aphrodisiaca, implies the power of this herb to stimulate and rejuvenate the sexual energies within you. It is a pungent and bitter herb which is heating to the body, but is also known to completely tonify and correct the energies of the regenerative system.
Shatavari - In the botanical language, Shatavari is known as asparagus racemosus. It is a wonderful tonic and aphrodisiac for the female, especially having a powerful action on the female reproductive organs. Shatavari in the Ayurvedic system is said to give the female the capacity to have a hundred husbands. Chinese herbalists call the herb tian men dong. This is the main rejuvenative tonic for the female although it is said to have an action on the male reproductive system as well. It can be used in a milk drink with ghee, honey and raw sugar with another herb called Pippali.
Whilst the aphrodisiacs like Ashwagandha are pretty hard to come by, other more common aphrodisiacs include the following:
