The Doctors share three surprising tips that could improve your sex life.
Blow your nose - The Doctors share that research has found blowing your nose may help improve sex. A clogged nose prevents you from receiving important smells and pheromones which are essential to achieving orgasm. The Doctors discuss how powerful pheromones and sense of smell are to getting in the mood. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains the olfactory bulb can get the limbic system firing and ENT specialist Dr. Andrew Ordon adds, “The biggest and best sex organ is right between your ears. Ninety-nine percent is mental and the rest is up to you!” Dr. Travis also notes the findings of one study which found women who had the strongest sense of smell had the best orgasms.
Eat more beets: Beets can help men produce nitric oxide which helps open up blood vessels. This is beneficial for blood flow to the penis, resulting in stronger erections, and can be helpful for men with erectile dysfunction. Dr. Ordon dubs beets “nature’s blue pill.” He says erectile dysfunction drugs also work with nitric acid to open up blood passages for more engorgement.
Enjoy saffron: Some consider the spice to be a natural aphrodisiac and The International Journal of Food and Research says saffron can improve sex drive and performance. Another study in the Natural Medicine Journal says saffron may help women suffering from sexual dysfunction. The Doctors test out our Sexy Saffron Tonic (get the recipe here) which Dr. Travis highly recommends.
Additional sex tips from The Doctors include: Dr. Travis suggests exercise can improve sex, Dr. Ordon notes that people may think alcohol helps but it has the opposite effect. And lastly, for good sex, Dr. Nita suggests giving up smoking.
