The Importance of Sexual Health

Health isn’t just an absence of illness. Living a robust, healthy life means having access to all of the components of optimal wellness. One of these components is a vital, satisfying sex life.

Various physiological conditions can interfere with ideal sexual health. Diseases, chronic health conditions, aging, nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, and a deconditioned body can all impinge on your sexual well-being.

Fortunately, there are steps you can take at any age to improve your sexual health. And when it comes to identifying and addressing the barriers that stand between you and optimal sexual health, Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, is with you every step of the way. 

Integrative and internal medicine physician Deborah D. Viglione, MD, and our team take sexual health seriously. In this post, we explore why your sexual health is so important and describe some of the treatments we offer for improving it.

About sexual health

Humans are sexual creatures, gaining enjoyment, pleasure, and satisfaction from thinking about and performing sexual acts. A mutually satisfying sexual relationship brings people closer to their partners and creates a shared space of intimacy and warmth with another person.

When you take care of your sexual health in a holistic way, you can also boost your physical, emotional, social, and mental well-being. Good sexual health can have a positive impact on your overall wellness. 

Optimizing your sexual health

At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center, we provide a range of non-surgical sexual optimization services designed to bolster sexual health and address a range of conditions that can interfere with a healthy sex life, such as decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, low sexual stamina, and vaginal discomfort during sex.

Hormone therapy

As you age, levels of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can become imbalanced, which can have a negative impact on sex drive in both men and women. Restoring balance through hormone therapy can address a variety of issues, including low sex drive. We provide our patients with safe, effective, plant-based bioidentical hormones.

Vaginal tightening

Viveve is a gentle laser treatment that uses targeted radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate vaginal tissue and address vaginal laxity. Viveve treatment leads to the formation of new collagen in vaginal tissues, which helps make your vagina tighter and more sensitive to sexual activity.

Shock wave therapy

Reduced blood flow in the sexual organs can impede satisfaction and performance in both men and women. Two treatments, GAINSWave®️ for men and FemiWave™ for women, improve sexual function and enjoyment by using gentle, low-intensity shock waves to boost blood flow and support blood vessel health in sexual organs.

Sexual renewal shots

Specially formulated injections made with platelets from your own blood can help improve sexual function by stimulating tissue renewal in your genitals. Our practice offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) therapies, which contain excellent sources of growth factor compounds to improve genital blood circulation and sensation.

Restore your sexual health
