We are all desirous of living a prosperous life, but it can often force us to participate in a mad rat race, which might bring in wealth and financial security, but it can also rob us of peace, happiness, and love. Coping with the demands of this modern life is not easy. Inevitably, stress and tension dull our sexual passions and we lose the desire to be intimate with our life partner.
If the passion has gone out of your married life, have you ever stopped to wonder what could be causing it? One of the main reasons for poor sexual desire is anaemia- a condition that develops when the body lacks red blood cells or hemoglobin.
Light headedness or dizziness
Paleness of skin
Shortness of breath
Cold hands and feet
Poor hemoglobin count can interfere with the levels of oxygen in the blood. In addition to affecting the entire body, it can also dampen your libido. Furthermore, since the person is constantly tired, he / she is unable to keep up energy levels in bed.
Ayurveda believes that irregular diet and lifestyle can hamper the digestive process, which, in turn, can affect the absorption of nutrients in the body. Consequently, the rakta dhatu doesn’t get adequate nourishment, leading to a fall in both the quality and quantity of rakta dhatu being produced in the body.
Ayurveda identifies seven types of dhatus (tissues) in the body. They are rasa (plasma), rakta (blood), mamsa (musle), medas (fat), asthi (bone), majja (marrow), and shukra (reproductive tissue). These dhatus have to be produced in the right order and amount for good health. People suffering from anaemia have less of rakta dhatu, which causes deficiency in shukra dhatu - the tissue responsible for sexual energy and passion.

Massage is extremely beneficial in opening up the blood channels, which leads to better circulation of blood and production of red blood cells. It also helps get rid of the toxins accumulated inside the body.
Yogasanas like Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation), Titli Asana (Butterfly pose), Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand), and Kapalbhati (breathing exercises) all promote blood circulation, which nourishes every corner of the body.
