5 Reasons to Have Sex Today!

By Veronica Peterson, Editor, Healthy & Green Living

What would Valentine’s Day be without an opportunity to mention the three-letter word that gets everyone so riled up? Yes, you guessed it–I’m talking about a little S-E-X. So, let’s chat, shall we? Beyond being just one-heck-of-good-time, medical studies report that an active sex life contributes to a longer and more fulfilling life. So come on, everybody’s doing it (or at least the lucky ones), and here are five reasons for you to join in:

1. Sex boosts your immune system. “Honey, I have a headache,” may now be the best reason to have sex! A startling number of physicians are now recognizing how sexual and emotional health affect our entire well being. In other words, how our brain directly impacts our immune system. “We know that people who enjoy a regular, satisfying sex life (i.e. regular orgasms) are less stressed, less depressed and generally more well physically, mentally and emotionally,” says Wendy Strgar, loveologist and CEO of Good Clean Love. In a recent article, Dr. Paul Pearsall, director of Behavioral Medicine at Detroit’s Beaumont Hospital, concludes that many of his patients had experienced sexual dissatisfaction prior to a heart attack. He also claims that sexual contentment leads to less severe headaches and reduced discomfort from arthritis in both genders. (Read about 6 other weird ways to boost your immunity!)

Who will ever believe that a herb can cure 5 years HIV in my body,My name is Khadija, I never believe that it will work that is why am dropping this post. I have spent a lot getting drugs from the hospital to keep me healthy, what i was waiting for was death because I was broke. One day a friend of mine from UK came to visit me and saw my condition was getting worst, then she told me about this great man from African called Dr GODSENT who cured her sister from HIV and cancer of the breast, without demanding much from her, she told me that he is well known in
curing HIV/AIDS, GENITAL HERPES (HSV1, HSV2), (HPV) CANCER, CELIAC, CHLAMYDIA, ENDOMETRIOSIS, and any kind of DISEASES. I decided to email him, unknowingly to me that this will be the end of the HIV aids in my body, he prepare for me Herbs and prescription on how to take it, at the end of two weeks, i was asked to go to the hospital for a checkup, and i went, Surprisingly after the test the doctor confirm me negative, i thought it was a joke, i went to another hospital, it
was also negative, I was so happy that I quickly introduce my friend who has been suffering from Herpes for the past 5 years to Dr Godsent, after taking the Herbs DR. Godsent send to her, less than two days the inching stop, less than 2 weeks she was completely heal and healthy again. Words alone cannot express how much joy and happiness i have now... Please I want everyone out there with any virus or infection to be healed and healthy, Health i
