The Connection Between Physiology, Diet, and Sex [2:03]
Christine approaches health from a natural perspective. In Chinese medicine, a practitioner always looks to the root of health to assist their patient, not symptoms.
When we think about great sex, women tend to think about it psychologically, but physiological great sex means strong signals of pleasure are sent from our genitals and nerve endings up to our brain, therefore, balancing our sex hormones.

How to Achieve Great Sex Based on Chinese Medicine [26:11]
Traditional Chinese medicine teaches us that hormonal balance is the balance of Yin/Yang in the body. Yin is the feminine essence and the physical attributes of the body. Yang is male energy, think nerve conduction, and the heart beating. Balance is key.
The traditional Chinese view on sex is that when we have strong Chi we have good sex. And, the essence of life is believed to be housed in the kidneys.
