22 diseases you can cure by having regular sex

22 diseases you can cure by having regular sex

A healthy and satisfying sex life is crucial for a couple’s overall physical, mental and emotional well being. Regular sex is a natural and inevitable part of a romantic relationship. Further, studies prove that it can help cure or prevent several minor and major health issues. Here are five ailments and illnesses that regular sex can help cure or prevent.

Aside from being fun and bringing pleasure, sex also offers many health benefits. Find out the benefits of having sex regularly

Having sex twice a week releases an antibody called immunoglobulin A or IgA, which helps protect the body from infection and disease.

22 diseases you can cure by having regular sex

1. Sex protects you from prostate cancer
Research suggests that frequent ejaculation (at least five times a week) in men reduces the risk of developing prostate cancer later in life.

2. Sex helps you stay in shape
There’s nothing like having fun (and having fun) while exercising! Having sex is great for your heart rate. It also tones all the muscles in your body. It seems hard to believe, but by having sex you burn almost 200 calories in half an hour. So having sex three times a week will burn a total of 600 calories. And that’s so much better than a diet!

3. Sex relieves headaches
During sex, a hormone called oxytocin is released during orgasm; it increases the level of endorphins that act as a natural painkiller. And the body can relax.
Many people find that their aches and pains (headaches, cramps, etc.) disappear or improve after sex.

4. Sex helps fight depression
Women who have regular orgasms are generally more relaxed, less depressed, and physically and emotionally more satisfied.
Sex also helps you fall asleep better and relieves nervous tension by producing serotonin in the brain – which controls mood and is also found in antidepressants.

5. Sex keeps you young
Sex is said to be one of the key components to looking about ten years younger! In his book Secrets of the Superyoung, Dr. David Weeks, a psychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Scotland, compiled the lifestyle habits of about 3,500 people, aged 18 to 102. The people surveyed had at least three sexual encounters per week and they all had the particularity of looking several years younger than their marital status indicated. These beneficial effects have been confirmed by numerous other studies.

6. Sex protects against incontinence
In women, regular sex promotes pelvic floor health and reduces the risk of age-related incontinence.

7. Sex heals the mind
Making love is one of life’s pleasures. It is a pleasure that we offer ourselves, that we offer, that we share. Making love is a healthy need of the body and mind that fills us with energy, tenderness and life. It is a way to communicate with all our senses, our feelings. It is a meeting place, where creativity, healing and peace are intertwined.

8. Sex makes you happy
People who are sexually active are generally happier (which is great for the immune system) and less prone to depression.

9. Sex protects against insomnia
Lack of sleep has a negative impact on our daily lives. To fight insomnia, experts recommend, among other things, to stop drinking alcohol and caffeine, to watch less TV and to take a bath before going to bed. Making love can be added to this list of tips to sleep well. Men fall asleep almost instantly afterwards, and the toxins released during sex have a tranquilizing effect on women.

10. Sex protects against skin diseases
Regular sex releases a plethora of hormones into the body, called “happy hormones”. And they contain testosterone. As we age, testosterone levels decrease. Therefore, a lot of sexual intercourse ensures a good level of testosterone in the body.
This hormone plays an important role in keeping bones and muscles healthy and skin looking young.

11. Sex protects against breast cancer
Orgasm could prevent the development of breast cancer. An Australian study suggests that stimulation of the breasts in women releases a hormone called oxytocin. The study states that oxytocin is released in large quantities at the time of orgasm, and that sexual activity could therefore have a protective role against this type of cancer.

12. Sex protects against cardiovascular disease
Having sex is good for your heart. A study at Queen’s University Belfast shows that having sex three times a week cuts your risk of heart attack or stroke in half. In women, sex increases the production of estrogen, known to fight heart disease. And there’s good news for your man, too: another study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health says that sex two or more times a week reduces the risk of a fatal heart attack, by 50% more, than men who have sex only once a month.

13. Sex boosts self-esteem
It’s a known fact that the more you have sex, the more you’ll crave it. The sexually active body releases a very large quantity of pheromones, which, like a sexual perfume, make you even more attractive to your partner.
Finally, feeling wanted makes us feel beautiful and is a great self-esteem tonic!

14. Sex increases self-control
Having sex regularly soothes and reduces stress. It provides fulfillment and self-confidence. A recent study in Scotland showed that sexually active people are better able to keep their cool and handle stressful situations.

15. Sex protects against flu and asthma
According to researchers, having sex at least once or twice a week increases the production of antibodies (immunoglobulin A) that protect us from viral infections like the flu. Sex is also a natural antihistamine: it fights asthma and hay fever.

16. Sex makes you live longer
Sex doesn’t just make you feel younger; research shows that it can actually slow down the aging process. When you reach orgasm, the body secretes DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone or prasterone), a hormone known to improve immune system health, tissue repair that helps keep skin young. DHEA also promotes the production of other hormones such as estrogen, which can prolong life by improving cardiovascular health. So it’s proven, sex makes you younger! A 1981 study showed that the mortality rate among men over 70 was lower in men who were still sexually active…

17. Sex tones your pelvis
Dr. Kegel’s Kegel exercises involve the contraction and relaxation of the pelvic muscles. Experts recommend that women practice them daily to prepare for the stresses of pregnancy. However, the problem is that they must be practiced daily to be truly effective. Fortunately, there’s another way to strengthen these muscles – without realizing it, having sex will tone your pelvis. And the firmer the muscles, the better the pleasure.

18. Sex protects women from mental illness
According to a study, semen, absorbed in the human body helps women to regulate their hormones and therefore reduces the risk of mental illness.

19. Sex cures back pain
Studies have shown that vaginal stimulation increases pain tolerance. Self-stimulation of the clitoris also has an analgesic effect. According to researchers, this kind of stimulation can relieve pain caused by menstrual cramps, arthritis, back pain and various other conditions.

20. Sex protects against cavities
Kissing every day keeps the dentist away. Saliva cleans and lowers the level of acid that causes cavities and prevents plaque. An analgesic in saliva called opiorphine relieves physical pain and inflammation-related pain, according to a French study.

21. Sex relieves sickle cell disease
During sex, the heart beats faster and therefore increases the level of oxygen in the blood and the speed of blood flow. Two conditions that prevent the malformation of red blood cells and thrombosis.

22. Sex contributes to happiness
The moments of pleasure and affection that we share with our partner are priceless. And have many psychological benefits for our mental health, such as fighting depression.

Economists from the University of Warwick had fun comparing how sexuality and money contribute to happiness. After interviewing 16,000 people, the main finding was that the people who are happiest are also those who have more sex. And the impact seems to be strongest among individuals with higher levels of education. On the other hand, a higher income does not necessarily mean more sex.
