Legend has it that Cleopatra often put saffron leaves in her bathwater to spice up her sex life. In praise of its celebrated fertility, the ancient Aztecs referred to the avocado tree as the "testicle tree." And the ancient Ayurvedics were known to prepare a recipe of eggplant and chives to enhance love making.
It seems the more things change the more they stay the same. Modern research has established that many common foods and spices contain antioxidants, neurotransmitters and phytonutrients that trigger powerful mind altering endorphins which can make us feel sexier!
Brain endorphins influenced by diet are actually a form of endogenous morphine, said to be up to 25,000 times more powerful than pharmaceutical morphine! They stimulate brain pathways capable of generating intense excitement and inciting hormones of passion. Make no mistake about it, there are common foods that can make you feel sexier!
However, we must keep in mind that we are all bio-energetically unique. What works for one person's energy may not work for another's. Everything is energy, and all energy has its own unique "DNA like" energy code -- people and food included.
Deciphering which of these foods might increase your ardor can be a most enjoyable task, but there's a simple way to crack your personal energy code and pinpoint your sexiest foods! It's a extraordinary muscle testing procedure highlighted in my latest book entitled, Whole Health: A Holistic Approach to Healing for the 21st Century (Tarcher, December 2013). My Electromagnetic Muscle Testing (EMT) technique is remarkably accurate and can be mastered in minutes.
Your nervous system retains your energy code, and your muscles will weaken at the mere mention of any wrong match. Stand face to face, with your partner at arm's length. Raise your non dominant arm at shoulder's height. Close your eyes as your partner calls out the names of each of the seven foods. As they call out each food, your partner should try to depress your non-dominant raised arm, with their dominant hand. If your strength weakens and your arm drops at the mention of any food, then it doesn't correspond with your energy code, and will not be a stimulus for you. It's show time! Grab a partner and begin testing each other for these seven sexy foods:
