Dementia and intimacy

Many people, both women and men, as they grow older, experience decreased ability to participate in intimate relations with their partners.  Is this inevitable and unchanging? Not if the cause is the years of eating and drinking foods and beverages containing more than they tolerate of the aging chemicals. It is not inevitable if the nerves involved in intimacy have only been damaged and not destroyed by these chemicals. If these nerves are destroyed, lovemaking is not possible.

Some proof of this dependence on the nervous system is seen in surgeries to remove the cancerous prostrate gland. A certain percentage of of these surgeries can result in the loss of ability to engage in lovemaking.

If the nerves are still intact, even if damaged but not destroyed by surgery or the diet, there is a chance to again engage in intimate relations with your partner. Closely follow the diet as described in Retaining the Mind. As nerves heal very slowly, it may take 6 months, 1 year or 2 years to find out if this function can be regained.

May the diet restore you.
