Years ago I went to lectures at the Macrobiotic Center In New York City. There were some excellent speakers during that time. Their information went way beyond what people now consider Macrobiotics. For many the word Macrobiotics often means rice, beans and vegetables. Anyway, the lectures were largely about understanding how health and  sickness occurs through studying seasonal changes, the details of nature as seen in the human body, the development of health and sickness from prenatal times into adulthood throughout the generations and historically. Whew! I think that was a run on sentence, but so what.


To get to the point here, from a Traditional Asian Medical perspective, when someone is not well they need all their cellular energy to heal. Procreation is not important for the survival of the individual in recovery mode. All their energy is needed simply hang in there and heal. This could be a very long debate and discussion that is not going to happen here. I realize there are people living on the streets, barely surviving, who conceive. There are people living in much more civilized situations that can not get pregnant. The reasons are complex and sometimes simple. People who do not have much may not have been exposed to long term medical intervention, and non-medical related chemicals that have ultimately weakened their immune systems. That is one scenario. Someone with less means probably has not had antibiotics and other non-emergency type medical intervention at every turn [one of many possibilities], and may have stronger immunity. This could be a huge rabbit hole kind of discussion that is not going to be resolved here. Supposition is the basis for all debates.

Okay, so why do some people  who are not well have an over abundance of sexual energy? Over abundance meaning they need to have sex often to feel calm, be able to sleep, feel they have worth, etcetera. Not going into the complexities of sexual addiction here. Well, we mostly hear about this in men. Men have issues with no sexual energy [Viagra], as well. There are women that have seemingly higher sexual drives, but less so due to the complex nature of women’s sexual organs, hormonal make-up due to menses and childbearing. Wow, this all sounds all very clinical.

What I am trying to say here is that any extreme is not healthy and ends up reaching the same dead end. Here are some universal poor health scenarios: Procreation is not easy, does not come to full term, or impossible. Sex is uncomfortable or painful, mostly for women. For men it is more about performance difficulty, some pain. Men can have an extremely unhealthy PH balance that leads to low sperm count. Not a reason for low sperm count that we hear spelled out so simply by physicians and pharmaceutical companies. The unbalanced PH is also at the route of poor female sexual health.


If you are healing you probably do not have much sexual energy. Maybe that is a gross understatement. You can be unhealthy and have a sex drive, but no one wants to have sex with you because you are grumpy, moody and downright annoying. Okay, I am kidding here. Sort of.

As people heal their personal physical situations they will have more energy for a part of life that is sometimes frowned upon due to a myriad of misunderstandings. Some are  social, some family and others are religiously misguided. The good news is that sexual energy will improve as healing occurs. This can take time.  These ebbs and flows will show up  and disappear sporadically. When the body is less bogged down with acidic material and has a healthy gut to process it all, sex should not be painful, burning, or  physically burdensome. An uncomfortable situation, as people feel better, can be remedied easily, and not be a deal breaker. The male side of things is something I can NOT directly speak for, but I think I have covered some of it here.

The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin is a very comprehensive, long term solution to healing the entire body and that includes everything, above and below the waste. Whew!

Why am I sweating and looking to find a diplomatic way to end this post? No, I am not having a hot flash. Hope you are laughing.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
