At last, a drug-free, holistic program to restore sexual passion and desire

Despite what many so-called experts believe, lack of sexual desire in women does not necessarily indicate a hormonal problem. More often, asserts sex therapist Dr. Kathryn Hall, it means that something is out of balance in our lives. In Reclaiming Your Sexual Self, Dr. Hall reveals how to discover the source of your lack of sexual interest and take charge of your health. Drawing on successful methods she has used in her clinical practice, she helps you identify the imbalances that are affecting your overall well-being and get in touch with lost or neglected sexual feelings. Through a series of illuminating exercises and with Dr. Hall's wise, warm advice, you'll discover:
* Why it's okay to want sex-and enjoy it
* Ways to improve communication with your partner
* The right conditions and circumstances to spark your sexual interest
* How to maintain a vital sexual connection for the long term
* When to consult a professional

Hormone replacement therapy doesn't have to be the answer. You can reclaim your sexual self and keep desire and passion alive and well by following the proven, reassuring advice in this authoritative guide.

    Worth it's weight in gold

    I bought this book to try to help my relationship problems. I can honestly say this is the most comforting and empowering book I've ever read. Not only does the author share very helpful and insightful advice but she tells stories about the patients she has had and their issues. It really makes you feel like you're not the only one. She doesn't give you impossible advice either. The excersizes in the book are both easy to do and very enlightening. It's a very uplifting and enjoyable read.
