Sex and wellness


                         Your Sex and your Health

Bringing sex and your health together is one of the major things that should be introduced in evaluating our state of mind and physical wellbeing. 

Taking care of yourself is more than just eating and being healthy, it also goes into being in a promising and good sexual relationship which speaks a whole lot about your wellness.

Having a good sexual relationship and a superb sex in marriages keeps you in a healthy relationship and also makes you look younger. And this has been proved scientifically.
                         It is also Anti-ageing
What do I mean here, regular sex practice at least three times a week on a regular basis has been proven to make you 7-13years younger than your real age according to a study at (Scotland's Royal Edinburgh Hospital).
Researchers believe the youthful glow comes in part from the release of the DHEA hormone during sex. DHEA, which is produced by your adrenal glands, has antiaging properties that can increase the production of collagen and may reduce wrinkles. Simply having positive memories about your sexual past may add roughly four years to your life, according to research at the Duke Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development. Researchers found that these fond memories may encourage you to continue leading a happier, healthier life.

                  Connect spouses together
Naturally, sex brings spouses together in a way that the love continues to grow and it is more genuine. It brings about good communication between partners. And keeps argument away from homes when you have sex regularly in this it gives rise to easy forgiveness in terms of arguments. You tend to think about the good time spent together and will forgive and want to make up.
But here we are talking about sex that comes naturally with feelings, not the forceful one. In other words it unite spouses. A good example is when we start having children naturally the attention of the mother is mostly shifted to the children. But sex tends to bring intimacy between spouses even when there are children.

                             Keep Your Heart Strong
Let's start with my favourite organ: the heart. We already know that sex can be a decent cardio workout (one 30-minute session can burn 70 calories); now research indicates it may protect your heart in other ways.
 A study in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy found that people who had sex an average of 12 times per month had greater heart rate variability (HRV)—a measure of how well the heart responds to subtle changes throughout the day (like standing versus sitting). Higher HRV is a good thing; it may lower your risk of developing heart disease, the leading cause of death for women.

                         Ordained by God
In the world of today, talking about sex has been ignored even in marriages and between spouse. It is very important because it is also Ordained by God.
The Bible says that Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

Before the fall – before sin – sex was part of the created order. It was good – VERY GOOD – and was engaged in freely, without inhibition of any kind by the man and the woman.

The Bible says that sex was affected by the fall but it remains something to be celebrated and protected throughout the entire law of Scripture. The Bible says, May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. A loving doe, a graceful deer— may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love.

Marriage should be honoured by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
Therefore Sex between a husband and a wife is never a cause for shame. It should be honoured, cherished and enjoyed as the gift and the good that it is; thanks be to God!

Married couples should have it often whenever they want
In addition to the goodness, generosity, and reciprocity mentioned above, the Scriptures also recommend a level of frequency that many modern Bible readers find quite surprising.

Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

At most, married couples could set aside a few days for dedicated prayer and spiritual observance – only if both parties were in agreement – but then they must come together quickly lest they be tempted to sexual immorality.

As in the Old Testament, so in the New, frequent marital intercourse is prescribed as a guard against a wandering eye and a lustful heart. The assumption is that if we drink deeply from our own cisterns we will be less tempted to draw from our neighbour’s well.
There is great wisdom – and great joy – in following this inspired instruction. 

In conclusion, it should be a point of discussion between spouse and follow the most prestigious way as it is also ordered by the word of God.
