    So my libido is pretty pathetic

    Primal Fuel
    Title says it all... I'm a 20 year old guy and I should be too horny to function. It's not that I'm not interested in ladies, but I am certainly less motivated to chase after them than most of my friends. Even when I do end up spending quality time with a girl, I tend to be less interested than I'd expect when we're actually getting down to business.

    I know libido is pretty much all hormones and that my anxiety and depression are probably throwing mine for a loop. I'm in therapy for those and making steady improvement. Still, this is an issue I'd like to address directly and promptly. Any ideas for what else could be happening here or what else I can do? Any suggested reading? Any personal experience?

    Testosterone is the male hormone. If your testosterone levels are normal, other things can be influencing your libido, as you mention, depression.
    People are taught they have to be raging sex maniacs with everyone, but really, this isn't true. Some of us are pretty selective about who really gets our attention, and it's not all physical. We want to feel a mental connection. For some women,
    the guy who is more cerebral is a better mate selection. Remember, it's quality, not quantity.

    The SSRIs that docs push are notorious for causing sexual "side effects" like loss of feeling.

    Are you taking anti-depressants as well as going to therapy? Many of those can cause lack of libido. I was on Zoloft for ten years. I didn't realize how much it was effecting my sex drive until I went off of them a month ago. Getting off the meds and going primal definitely brought me back to life!

    I think libido is a function of general wellness. For example, if you have diarrhea and headache, your libido might not be so hot. I would say eat well, sleep well, and exercise well. The X-factor could be porn if you watch it at all. STOP porn. It rewires your brain.

    My friend,

    You are severely deficient in iodine. You can prove this for yourself with the Iodine Loading Test. Iodine is required by every cell in our body, and supplies the thyroid with its energy to stimulate hormones throughout the body. Large amounts of iodine are required for the sex organs in both men & women. When people are deficient in iodine, libido is one of the 1st things to go.

    Iodine deficiency is also the cause of Prostate problems in men, fibrocystic Breast Disease, PCOS, Endometrium problems, & cysts in women. Both sexes suffer from cold hands, cold feet (hypothyroid) and other hypothyroid symptoms. All conditions are reversed with iodine with required supplements. See the Testimonials from people right here at Marks Daily Apple, where you will find libido improvements and reversal of serious female health problems from simply taking iodine with required supplements.

    Complete details & research here:
    http://tinyurl.com/iodine-references

    The Curezone also has a wealth of examples - from people with iodine deficiency problems. Do a search for "Libido."
    Men at the Curezone discovered this method to speed iodine into their prostate, and I can confirm it does wonders.

    If anyone has questions, PM me here or leave a message at the Curezone.

    Or it's just your personality. I could name a number of guys I knew back in college and even now who are just uninterested. They work, play video games, hang out with other guys. Theu see pursuing a girl as being just more time and effort than is worth their while. And I have a number of married guy friends who wish they had that carefree single life again. It takes all sorts to make the world...don't let society tell you that you have to be a horny male to be satisfied with life. By all means, get your hormonal level checked out if you are concerned but if everything is fine then just go with the flow.

    definition of troll (internet): In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response

    Let's see... not off-topic, not meaning to be inflammatory (but apparently it is to you), not intending to get any particular emotional response. Telling me to STFU and calling me a troll? I think you are fitting the definition here.

    As for my contribution to the thread...

    -The OP would need to tell us if they are having any other physical symptoms. Not enough info.
    -Would be helpful to know if they are being medically treated for anxiety & depression and/or how they are treating that beyond talk therapy.
    -How strict are you with primal eating?
    -Search on the forums for low testosterone, I am sure you are not the only person who has come around here with (potentially) this issue. There are probably herbs or supplements that would help immediately, but long term, eating well is the best cure.

    -To Grizz: I'm sure you can find testimonials for how space rocks cured someone's Alzheimers. That doesn't mean it is tried, true, and safe for everyone. You should NEVER act as though you have a cure-all for the world. You cannot test everyone, you cannot know. You can only suggest, which is a concept you do not seem to understand.

    YOU don't understand how to read English. Read this and give us a summary. You can't because there is nothing but negativism spewing out of your mouth.

    Those testimonials did not come from a rock. They came from members of this forum who were thrilled by the results of iodine supplementation. Iodine is a time tested & proven cure for over 100 years.

    See the Yahoo Iodine Group with 6,000+ members:
    Iodine and human nutrition. How much iodine do we need? What are the best sources? What happens if we don't get enough iodine?
    Iodine has been effective with hypothyroid and hyperthyroid conditions, goiter, fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, brain fog, constipation, obesity, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation, and detoxification issues (mercury, perchlorate, fluoride, bromide).

    Iodine is in every cell in the body and is essential in pregnancy. It is found in high levels in the thyroid gland, breast, ovaries, prostate, liver, lung, heart, stomach, and adrenal glands.

    There is currently a great deal of research on iodine and cancer, including cancer of the breast, colon, lungs, ovaries, pancreas, prostate, stomach, and thyroid.

    Some doctors are now using iodine in the treatment of children with down syndrome as well as autism with positive results.

    If you are an Iodine Researcher, you may be interested in our subgroup, IodineResearch: IodineResearch : IodineResearch

    See this link for more:
    iodine : Iodine
    Also this website has valuable information:
    Physicians Guy Abraham, MD, David Brownstein, MD, and Jorge Flechas, MD, have treated more
    than 4,000 patients with iodine supplementation. The protocol below is suggested by their
    writings and lectures. We acknowledge with appreciation their pioneering research and
    generous contributions to the field of Iodine Therapy. See references below the protocol.
    Iodine Therapy Guidelines
    And we have this excellent document from Dr. Buist.

    For those who are interested in iodine, leave me a message at the Curezone or send me a PM.

    Also read Iodine References here:

    I'm not going to waste time arguing with the TROLLS.
