The health of the body is integral to executing our day to day activities. Yet, the health of the body is (so often) overlooked. Modern lifestyles (have been) shown to facilitate (one’s) physical deterioration. By the age of 70 men can possibly have lost up 50% of their free testosterone; this can begin as early as one’s thirties. Men can display symptoms of erectile dysfunction, loss of strength, poor sleep patterns and low energy. Many women experience loss of sexual desire due to age, medications, mental / medical problems, sociocultural influences, interpersonal relationship issues and (also) low testosterone. These symptoms do not bode well for an active and fulfilling lifestyle.
Neither of these situations need be the case; yet, they (are) occur(ring) on a regular basis in society today. Muscular strength diminishes with lack of use as aging ensues. (One of the most striking effects of age is the involuntary loss of muscle mass, strength, and function, termed sarcopenia. Muscle mass decreases approximately 3–8% per decade after the age of 30 and this rate of decline is even higher after the age of 60. However, studies shown that the body can be functional and active up to and beyond 75 years of age. Active adults can retain much of their strength or even improve in their later years with proper training.The challenge of maintaining strength with age Participation in Physical Activity is Associated with Sexual Activity in Older English Adults Muscle tissue changes with aging
Also, with a healthy diet, adequate rest, and plenty of water, the ravages of aging and time can be held at bay. Some prescriptions for active aging are:
- At least 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity activity such as brisk walking
- At least 2 days a week of activities that strengthen muscles
- Activities to improve balance such as standing on one foot
Basically, increase your activity level. Bumping up your general level of activity will benefit your sex drive by increasing your energy and sense of well-being.Better Sex as you Age Physical Activity Recommendations for Different Age Groups
How does this tie into the joining of Female/Male energies? It is through the health of the body that these energies can be more fully expressed. Aging and time do not have to deleteriously affect the body Energies can be developed by using various practices. These energies can be used to develop higher spiritual faculties a nd abilities. During sexual arousal, an enormous amount of energy can be channeled upwards from the genitals along the spine to the top of the head. On its way up this energy fills and cleans blockages in the chakras, caused by emotional and psychological wounds. This explains why several spiritual paths view Qigong / Taiji / Yoga / Pranayama, approached from a sexual stance, can be used as a shortcut to enlightenment. Meditation and physical movement can also benefit the body on internal and external levels.

The Female / Male energies do not need to be dissipated through the unconscious acts of sense (sensual) gratification. Sensuality, although typically associated with sex, can be a term denoting any act that (is engaged in) to gratify and satisfy any of the six senses. Indulgence can lead to overindulgence. Overindulgence can lead to ill-health and dissipation of the energies. Debilitation and death can (ultimately) result. By monitoring rate of sensual indulgence and regulating sexual release, one can be highly active, even into their later years.
Let us be mindful of the benefits that a healthy body can bestow upon the owner. Many people own cars and would never dream of treating their cars in a manner that result in decline of performance. The body won’t last for ever but it can serve the owner as long as it is properly maintained. Strength, clarity of mind, sexual vigor . . . all of these can be enjoyed into one’s later years. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure . . . . . think about it . . . . and DO IT!!!!
