6 Reasons Why You Should Have More Sex

It’s your lucky day. We’re here to tell you why having more sex is good for your health. For more anti-aging tips, read my book, The 17 Day Diet Breakthrough Edition.

Sex helps you live longer. One of the reasons that sex feels so good is because of the chemicals released during intercourse. These include dehydroepiandrosterone (DHeA), a building block of testosterone, a sex hormone, which helps to repair and heal tissue. Another is human growth hormone, which helps your body stay youthful.

Sex boosts your immunity. Studies conducted at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania indicated that having intercourse one or two times a week raises the level of an antibody called immunoglobin A (igA) by as much as one-third. igA helps fortify your immune system because it binds itself to germs that enter the body.

Sex helps prevent prostate cancer. Yes, gentlemen, you read that correctly. Studies show that men who have frequent ejaculations in their 20s can have a significantly lower risk of prostate cancer as they age. Your 20s have come and gone? It’s not too late for sex to help you. Another survey by the national Cancer institute demonstrated that middle-aged men who average 21 ejaculations a month have a 33 percent lower risk for prostate cancer, compared to those with only four to seven ejaculations.

Sex is a painkiller. Pain of any variety puts a damper on living 100 quality years. But here comes sex to the rescue! Sex works as an analgesic in your body (much like aspirin or acetaminophen). During orgasm, the brain opens the floodgates of the hormone oxytocin, which acts as a natural painkiller. So before you head to the medicine cabinet, consider engaging in sex with your partner to treat pain from arthritis, migraines, or just simple achiness.

Sex makes you happy. Remember what i said about sexual intercourse releasing the hormone DHeA? Well, that hormone acts as a mood enhancer or natural antidepressant. In other words, sexually released DHeA is an “upper,” especially for women.

Sex protects heart health. In research that was aimed at identifying sex as a risk factor for heart attack in older patients, just the opposite proved true! This English study followed men for 20 years and found that not only was there no increased risk for strokes in elderly couples who engage in sex, but that if they had sex at least twice a week, they’d cut their risk of having a fatal heart attack in half.

Why was this? Easy. Sex increases circulation, reduces blood pressure, and has overwhelming benefits for the heart. So next time you want to do something good for your heart (emotionally and physically), jump into the sack with your partner!

Seasonal Allergies and Toothaches

Desert destinations like Phoenix and Tucson used to be top locales for those who had bad allergies. Thousands of allergy suffers heeded their doctor’s advice, headed West and moved to Arizona. Perhaps because they longed for the comforts of home, they brought their plants—and pollen—with them, and now Phoenix and Tucson are among the worst cities for spring allergies.
Why Are Allergies So Bad in Arizona?

Lush grass and shady trees may make the desert heat bearable, but these pollen-producing plants can drive allergy levels through the roof. The worst offenders in Arizona tend to be non-native plants that are wind pollinated, such as:

Arizona Ash
Bermuda grass
Olive trees
Palo Verde

Arizona’s dry climate dehydrates pollen and makes it more buoyant, so wind-borne pollen could fall miles away from the originating plant.
Why Do Some Allergy Sufferers Get Toothaches?

If your itchy eyes, sneezes and wheezes occasionally come with a toothache, you’re not alone.

Your body naturally produces extra mucus to rid itself of allergens, but this can cause build-up and pressure in your maxillary sinuses. Because the maxillary sinuses are located under your cheekbones and extend to the root tips of your upper molars, this can cause painful pressure that feels just like a toothache.

It’s important to get checked out if you experience a toothache, as your dentist and/or doctor are the only ones who can accurately determine the cause of the pain. If you have a history of dental problems, your pain is confined to one tooth or your tooth pain persists after allergy symptoms subside, call your dentist right away.
How Can I Alleviate Allergy Symptoms?

You can easy the sniffling, sneezing and watery eyes by avoiding your main allergy triggers. Here are a few tips:

Keep track of pollen counts. To find the allergen forecast in your area, visit pollen.com.
Stay indoors whenever the pollen count is high.
Keep your doors and windows closed to keep allergens out.
Wash your hair before bed to prevent pollen from rubbing off onto your pillow.
Take over-the-counter allergy drugs when necessary.
If you’re suffering from a toothache that’s caused from sinus pressure, drink plenty of water and get lots of rest. You may also want to take acetaminophen or ibuprofen to dull the ache.
