Rolfing is a body therapy named after and developed in the 1940s and 1950s by Dr Ida P. Rolf, an American physiologist and biochemist. Dr Rolf saw a link between the way we move our bodies and how this is affected by the force of gravity, believing any misalignment in our bodies (caused by skeletal, joint or muscular problems) is aggravated by that gravity. And because gravitational force works evenly, it pulls as much on a body’s imbalance as it does on areas of correct alignment, causing even further strain.

Beyond the zinc, magnesium, and healthy fat they contain, pumpkin seeds are rich in tryptophan. The former is a precursor to prostaglandins, a hormone-like substance that plays a key role not only in sexual health but also in sexual desire. And tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin, a brain chemical that regulates mood and promotes feelings of calm and relaxation, both of which are necessary for maintaining a healthy sex drive. Pumpkin seeds are one of the best foods to naturally boost testosterone.
