I don't think the answer for anything comes in a little pill. Communication, personal pride and health, and self esteem are the key to a flourishing love life. Whole Foods does offer terrific foods to keep the body running at its best, perhaps you should stay focused on these.

Well this is a new spin for Valentines Day. I personally believe in the power of chocolate, but I don't know if there is any science behind this love affair. Also I've heard about oysters, and wine, not in together.

Well Zoe's comments are intriguing! I guess Chris is a lucky man. I'll check into this myself.

I am someone who has tried some of these "Hot Herbs" and found great success. I don't know if a placebo would have had the same affect, or rather if the herbs just acted as a placebo, but either way, the end result was great for both of us.

I wonder what my sweetie will think when I ask for a bottle of herbs for Valentine, rather then chocolate. I really hope this may offer a boost in my sex drive.

Hi Winnie- "Winnie Hsia: @Linsday The three plants mentioned are Maca (Peru), Rhodiola rosea (Siberia) and Ashwagandha (India)." Are these available at most of your stores?

@Chad Yes, all these herbs are available in both capsule and liquid form in the Whole Body department. Check with your local store for their availability and selection.

ALL RIGHT!!!! Glad to see my favorite organic store coming through with natural options for my love life. I eat well, I love my partner, but I have a drop in libido happening with age. I applaud you embracing this topic, I am glad I don't have to go the "traditional" medical route.

Great job, covering a "taboo" subject. It really is a fact of life right, love is a beautiful thing.

It is really nice to hear there are natural approaches I can take to enhance my sex drive. I love your store for the great foods, and the knowledge your staff shares when I shop. I am really looking forward to my next visit, when I will head right to the "Hot Herbs" department :) Good job!

A friend just forwarded me a link to this podcast, I am really impressed. I always assumed I was on hold waiting for the female version of Viagra, but never like the prospects of taking a pill to ramp up my love life.

I do like the concept, and of course the name of "Hot Herbs" but for my body, regime, I'll stick with vitamins.

"Hot Herbs" is such a great title. I think your guest has the makings of a great short book.

I agree with other here, that keeping your overall health up is the greatest key to feeling good about yourself and then being able to share your self confidence. I do believe that support for your system is always helpful, particularly considering how stress can take its toll.

I'm glad to hear your stores have a support booklet, I think this will make it much easier for me to remember all of the names of the "Hot Herbs". I hope my store carries these products, it is one of the smallest Whole Foods I've been to

So glad I came across this podcast! A topic not always talked about, and the lack of discussion is a tragedy. Those of us left feeling the need to address this issue are only faced with no natural solutions or ideas. This really cheers me up, and I look forward to investigating the suggestion here, personal!

Chris does in fact have a book out called "Hot Plants". If you liked the podcast, you can find more information here: http://www.medicinehunter.com/books_by_chris_kilham.htm

This is a FUN topic. Typically you see libido enhancement geared toward men, which if you think about it is silly, in that most men seem to have a much higher sex drive. I it good to hear women and man both can benefit from these natural solutions!

As a green mom, this is great advice! Libido definitely changes after having kids. I agree with Gabby, usually this issue is addressed with men. Great to hear some advice across the board.
